Another special appearance comes from Clara Henry, Swedish comedian, author and host of Melodifestivalen 2017. Clara, who gained notoriety on YouTube, has filmed an exclusive vlog for Eurojury where she gives viewers an insight into her life including her memories of Melodifestivalen and Eurovision.
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.
How does Eurojury work?
Participating jury members have ranked their top ten songs of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, which have then be combined with the results of other jurors from their country to make up one national result. This year over 180 jurors from 42 countries contributed to the jury voting.This national result, when added to those of other countries, will produce the final ‘jury vote’.
This year two semi-finals were held to determine the twenty acts that made it through to the finals alongside the pre-qualified Big Five and the Netherlands. Your votes cast in the semi-finals and the juries points determined the ten qualifiers from each semi-final.
You were then invited to vote again for your favourite three acts in the contest. The votes were then counted and combined into points from each of the participating nations. The points were then verified and distributed, to reveal the winner.
