How does voting work in Eurovision?

Eurovision voting is split between judges from each country, and a televote. First, each country’s jury awards 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point to their favorite songs. Afterward, the televote is read out, where the combined public vote totals (via phone or SMS) are read out in ascending order.

If you’re watching Eurovision from a non-participating country,  you can vote by using the official Eurovision App or by visiting www.esc.vote.

Viewers can vote up to 20 times for their favorite songs, except the one from their own country. The country with the most points from both judges and the public wins the competition and will host Eurovision the next year!
