In a first for any form of Eurovision Contest, Online voting will be used at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest and form 50% of the overall result – the other 50% coming from the National Juries.
On Friday after the second rehearsals have taken place for the second set of countries, an Online portal will open at 18:00CET to allow anyone, anywhere in the world to vote – with the option to view one minute clips of each of the participants.
Voters have until just before the show on Sunday to cast votes for a minimum of three countries and a maximum of five countries – including your very own for the first time if you come from a participating country.
The voting will reopen for a period of 15 minutes after all the participants have performed during the LIVE show on Sunday afternoon. Similar to Melodifestivalen, the points will be given out depending on the percentage of the points they received.
