27 Songs: 40 Countries voting
27 songs will participate in the Grand Final, and professional juries in each of the participating countries, as well as in those countries that didn't qualify for the Grand Final, voted on yesterday's Jury Final. They account for 50% of the overall total.
The EBU's televoting partner Digame will merge the points given by the jury and the televoters tonight per individual country. If there is a tie between two or more songs between jury votes and televotes, then the song gaining the most televotes will be ranked higher.
Tonight the spokespersons from all 40 countries will announce the results of their votes.
The live show of the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 will take place on tonight at 21:00 CET and will broadcast live on Eurovision.tv and on our YouTube channel.
