The 2016 Eurovision Young Musicians takes place in Cologne on the 3rd of September. Each of the 11 participants will perform a piece of up to six minutes in length, which will be judged by a five-person professional jury. Jurors will comment on the performances after each participant has finished their piece, adding to the interaction during the show. After all of the performances, the jury will award points to each participant, with the total scores being used to decide the winner. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second, and third placed participants.
