How to vote
Last night, during the Jury Final, the national juries from all 41 participating countries already cast their vote. Their vote counts for 50% of tonight's result.
You determine the other half of the outcome. You can vote starting as soon as the hosts open the lines, as soon as the last contestant has performed. You can vote from all 41 participating countries, but you cannot vote for your own country. You can vote up to 20 times, or as much as national regulations allow. You can find voting information at the bottom of the screen during the show.
As soon as the voting lines have closed, Digame, the EBU's official voting partner of the Eurovision Song Contest, will aggregate the televotes from all participating countries. Under the supervision of the EBU and EY notaries, the scores are then verified.
First, all 41 spokespersons will reveal the jury points. From each country the points 1-8 and 10 will appear and the scoreboard, the spokesperson will then reveal that country's 12 points. Next, all countries’ televoting points will be added together, to be revealed starting at the bottom of the scoreboard, working towards a thriller finale.
Close to 1:00 CEST we will finally know the winner of the 64th Eurovision Song Contest.
