You can find more information about tonight's participants on our Event Page for the Second Semi-Final.

Out of the 19 entries, 10 will go forward to the Final of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest due to a 50/50 decision of televoting and national expert juries, the results of which will be added up for each respective country.

The expert juries have voted already yesterday during the Second Dress Rehearsal, based on the live performances of the participating artists, but the results have not been disclosed yet. The televoting will take place during the live show, starting from the beginning of the Semi-Final.

TV viewers from the 19 participating countries as well as those from France, Germany and Italy will have the opportunity to take part in the televoting, with the numbers and details being announced in the live broadcast of the public broadcaster in each country.

After the voting results have been collected, they are centrally added up, and the countries qualifying for the Final will be announced in random order by opening virtual envelopes.

While Europe is voting, the TV viewers will be treated by a performance by the The Flying Steps. Read more about the interval acts in our featured article.
