12 songs: 13 juries

12 songs will participate in the Final, and professional juries in each of the participating countries, will be voting on tonight's dress rehearsal. They will account for 50% of the overall total.

Each national jury will be comprised of six members. Those juries consist of a variety of members in terms of age and gender and are all music professional, and include singers, DJ's, journalists and composers.

A thirteenth extra jury will be comprised of twelve children, one from each of the participating countries. They will also be voting on tonight's performances and their votes will be the first to be announced in the Final on Saturday night.

The Jury Voting

Each jury member will rate their top ten favourite songs, and award points from 1 to 8, 10 and 12 points.

They will allocate 12 points to the song having obtained the highest number of votes from all jury members, 10 points to the song having obtained the second highest number of votes,8 points for the song having obtained the third highest number of votes, then 7 points next, and so on down to 1 point for the song having obtained the tenth highest number of votes from all jury members.

In the event of a tie for any of the above positions, the order of tying songs shall be determined by a show of hands by the jury members.

The EBU's televoting partner Digame will merge the points given by the jury and the televoters tomorrow night per individual country. If there is a tie between two or more songs between jury votes and televotes, then the song gaining the most televotes will be ranked higher.
