The sixth edition of Eurojury plays host to almost one hundred former Eurovision Song Contest participants from thirty-five nations. Tonight, they’ll be revealing their favourite songs of this year’s contest, combined the votes of thousands of fans from across the globe to produce the most accurate simulation of Eurovision results likely to be seen on the big night in May.
Tonight’s broadcast is presented by the BBC’s Rob Lilley, filmed in four countries over three months. We’ll be revealing how this year’s jury members ranked the forty-three competing songs, before combining their scores with your votes. It’s not all facts, figures and number crunching though, along the way we’ll be joined by a selection of guests including some of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest participants. We’ll also be putting the stars of Melodifestivalen to the test in a language challenge set to baffle even the most well travelled of fans. It’s an hour of points, music and laughter that you don’t want to miss.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, acting as the popular vote. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country.
