The reveal of the jury votes gives us a chance to catch with some familiar faces from past Eurovision Song Contests.
As ever a number of countries have opted to have their points announced by former Eurovision participants. On top of the involvement of Måns Zelmerlöw and Verka Serduchka earlier in the show, as well as Jamala and Ruslana during the intervals.
Taking the stage as performers you may recognise IMRI from Israel, he was a backing singer for Israel for the past two years. While Suntroke Project are back after seven years away, the group from Moldova are probably most well known for “Epic Sax Guy”, the saxophone player in the group. In addition, fans of Junior Eurovision may just recognise OG3NE, they represented the Netherlands at Junior Eurovision 2007 in Rotterdam.
