Eurovision Song Contest 2017: The Jury

The Grand Final of the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest will take place on May 13th in the International Exhibition Centre of Kyiv, Ukraine. Forty-two artists will take to the stage over three nights to perform their contributions for the contest, fighting to become the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. The winner will be selected in part by public voting on the night, and in part by a professional jury the day before. At last year’s contest in Stockholm, a new voting system (similar to that of Melodifestivalen) was introduced in which the televote and jury vote were split in order to create a more tense atmosphere and exciting end to the show.

In previous years, the spokespersons from across Europe would reveal their nation’s top ten songs, announced from 1 point up to 7, followed by the famous 8,10 and 12 points. These results were the combined opinion of the voting public and professional jury. Each country’s points would be combined to reach a final result. Now, however, the spokespersons only reveal the top ten of the national jury, leaving the public vote until the end of the show. The public votes are assigned points from 1-8,10 and 12, before being added together to create a ‘pot’ of results. The public vote is now announced collectively awarding anywhere from ‘nil points’ to a maximum of 504 points, a total of 2436 points will be awarded by the public in May, as will 2436 points from the jury. The highest possible score any country could receive is 1008 points, on the basis that every country’s public vote and jury vote awarded the same nation 12 points.

This year’s Eurovision Song Contest jury is made up of 210 members, five from each of the forty-two participating nations. All jury members must be aged 16 or over, the oldest jury member this year is 76 years old; Mary Hammond, who will vote on behalf of the United Kingdom’s jury. None of the jury members are permitted to work for the host broadcaster, which often rules out television presenters and producers. All jury members are musicians or have some involvement in the music industry as their profession. It is also a requirement that all jury members are citizens of the country they are representing. Jury members must not have connections to the entry of any participating nation (excluding their own), and may not have been a member of the jury in the past two years.
