"Welcome to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017"

Interval Acts

After all the 26 songs are performed, it's time to "start voting", but it's the only time in the show that allows you to take a break or eat something, because the voting results will start being announced in just 30 minutes.

However, the Eurovision show never has a break. And this year, between the performances and the results announcement, we can see two of the past Eurovision winners, Ruslana and Jamala, the Ukrainian singers that took the contest to Ukraine following their victories, as well ONUKA, an electronic music band featuring Ukrainian folk music and motifs.

The first one acting in this interval act is... Ruslana! Thirteen years after her victory, she's back to Eurovision, now presenting her new single "It's Magical", in an amazing performance, accompanied by twenty dancers. She's older, that's a fact, but no one can deny that she still rocks, and she will always have a spot in eurofans' hearts!

Next is ONUKA... The band, the famous Ukrainian sound producer and musician Eugene Filatov (The Maneken) and Nata Zhyzhchenko (former vocalist of Tomato Jaws and Kooqla), was founded in 2013 and have released several albums and singles. They perform a medley of several songs, in a very good performance.

Now, it's time to Jamala, following her performance in the interval act of the first semifinal. However, in this evening, she will perform her new single "I Believe in you", whose videoclip was shoot some weeks ago in Portugal. Yeah, we know, it's not something like "1944", but its love story is dedicated to her new husband.

The winner of Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016, Mariam Mamadashvili from Georgia, is also interviewed.

"And the winner is...."


The voting procedure will be the same as last year. Each country will have two sets of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 and 12 points to give. One set for each country's jury, and one set for each country's televoting.

  • Each of the 42 countries participating in this years Eurovision will vote
  • Each country has a national jury who gives one set of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 and 12 points
  • Each country will have televoting which also results in a set of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 and 12 points
  • First the the juries points will be presented individually by a spokesperson from each country
  • Secondly the points from televoting will be bundled and given combined
  • Televoters and national juries have equal weight in the voting
  • The national juries voted yesterday evening (Friday, 12 May) during the second dress-rehearsal
  • If two countries have the same points, the best of the two is the song which has obtained points from the highest number of countries. If the tying songs have received points from the same number of countries, the highest number of 12-point scores shall be decisive. If the winner still cannot be determined by this procedure, the number of times ten points have been awarded shall be the deciding factor. If necessary, this method shall continue until account has been taken of the number of times one point has been awarded

Shortly after the Grand Final, the detailed results, voting and points will be revealed.
