Tonight - the Grand Final!

16 May 2009 at 04:03 CEST

Televoters and professional juries

This year, the European Broadcasting Union introduced some remarkable changes in the voting of the Eurovision Song Contest Final as for the first time in years, the winner won't be decided solely by televote. In contrast, a mixture of 50% televote and 50% jury will be used. For this purpose, national juries consisting of five music industry professionals have gathered in all 42 participating countries who will rank the songs in Eurovision Song Contest style, giving 12 points to their favourite song, 10 points to their second favourite etc. The results of the 5 jury members will then be added up and will account for 50% of the country's votes. Those results will then be combined with the televote results. So, don't forget to phone in or send an SMS for your favourite song(s)!
