Eurojury will return in 2020 for the eighth broadcast of the most accurate simulation of Eurovision results. Around 100 Eurovision winners, past participants, national finalists and a handful of special guests are due to take part in this year’s edition, which will be broadcast live on Showcase, by Eurovoix on May 1st.
Participating jury members will vote for their favourite songs from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest and these individual results will be combined with votes from other jurors of the same nationality. This will create numerous national results which will be combined to create the overall ‘jury vote’.
Much like the Eurovision Song Contest itself, the vote will be split into two parts. The second part of the vote will be cast by fans from around the globe in what will be the ‘public vote’. Once combined, the jury vote and the public vote will create an overall leaderboard and reveal the winner of Eurojury – the act the public and our professional jury think will win the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam.
For the past two years, Eurojury has correctly identified the winner of Eurovision with both Netta and Duncan Laurence topping the overall leaderboard in Eurojury and the Eurovision Song Contest itself. Eurojury also correctly identified four out of the top five acts in the final in Tel Aviv.
For a fifth consecutive year, Rob Lilley will present the coverage. This will be the third time he has been the sole presenter following two editions with a co-host – 2016 with Karl William Lund and in 2019 with Alice Chapman.
Directing the show once again will be Samuel Deakin – he has conducted this role on every edition of Eurojury. Heading up the production will be James Rowe after he co-produced the broadcast in 2019.
Filming for the broadcast has taken place across Europe with shoots in the UK, Norway and Sweden all contributing to the broadcast this coming May.
Fans will be able to get involved in the public vote when it opens in the Spring. Follow all the latest updates on Eurovoix.com
