The first fifteen international jury members for Eurojury 2020 have been revealed.
On the 1st May, Eurojury 2020 returns as we come together to celebrate as one united community of music lovers. Every day this week we will be revealing the jury members who will be responsible of 50% of the final outcome of Eurojury 2020.
The other 50% of the final result will be down to you, the public. The online vote will open next week. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen at the Eurovision Song Contest.

About Eurojury 2020
Eurojury will return in 2020 for the eighth broadcast of the most accurate simulation of Eurovision results. Around 150 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.
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.
We’re pleased that we have partnerships with multiple trusted Eurovision brands this year: Eurovision Hub, Aussievision, ESCXTRA, Eurovision Showcase and The Euro Trip. Each brand will be supporting Eurojury 2020 in the run-up to the three broadcasts on April 27, April 29 and May 01.
Fans will be able to get involved in the public vote when it opens in the Spring. Follow all the latest updates about this year’s broadcasts on eurovoix.com as well as on Twitter, @Eurovoix and @Eurojury2020.
