Tonight the national juries will cast their votes in Semi-final 1 in the Jury Rehearsal, when 18 countries in Semi-final 1 are having their Jury Rehearsal at 21:00 CEST.
A Jury Rehearsal is a full dress rehearsal that takes place each evening before the live shows. The national juries will watch this rehearsal live from abroad via a special broadcast link, that is not available to the public. The national juries rate every single song (except their own) from first place to last place, and the top-10 songs will be given 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 points.
The votes from the national juries make up 50% of the result. The remaining 50% is the public televoting that takes place during the live shows.
In the end of each Semi-final the 10 qualifying countries will be announced. The full voting results will be published after Saturday's Grand Final.
This year Eurovision is hosted by our the native town for 112.international – Ukraine’s capital Kyiv.
