The juries and online vote have spoken and the Netherlands has been crowned the winner of Eurojury 2019. A total of thirty-five juries took part in this years show, with thousands of online votes also received. This evenings show also featured guest appearances from Zibbz (Switzerland 2018) and AWS (Hungary 2018).
This year’s show was nailbiting, with the results coming down to the last moments of the show. The first half of the show saw the top 20 of the jury revealed, with John Lundvik from Sweden winning the vote with 202 points. This all changed with the online vote, when the Netherlands scored 333 points, giving them a 155 point margin over Italy.
Further detail on the voting in Eurojury 2019 will be released on April 21.
How does Eurojury work?
Participating jury members ranked their top ten songs of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, which were then combined with the results of other jurors from their country to make up one national result. This national result, was then added to those of other countries, to produce the final ‘jury vote’.
The broadcast consisted of two segments, much like the voting sequence of the Eurovision Song Contest, allowing both jury members and fans worldwide to express their opinions and contribute towards the final ranking of this year’s forty-one songs.
This year, two national broadcasters provided the results on behalf of their country. The national broadcasters of Ukraine and Bulgaria have taken part in this years show, despite both having withdrawn from the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
The juries that voted in this years show were as follows:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
The show is available to watch on demand at Eurovoix Showcase for the next 14 days.
