The Live shows are... 😱... the live shows. Here the whole shit will be decided. This is the real deal!

The Family rehearsals 👨‍👨‍👧‍👧 are the last rehearsals before it really counts. At this rehearsal there will be a simulation of the votings and the results... But it is still.. just a rehearsal. Nothing counts here.

The Jury Rehearsals 👮‍♂️ take place the day before the live shows. This is where the national Juries will cast their votes. The juries will watch this rehearsal live from abroad via a special broadcast link. 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. If something goes wrong during the LIVE broadcast, the recording of the Jury Rehearsals will be used instead, and viewed by millions!

How the online ticket system works

The online ticket sale at BlueTicket.pt has a queueing system. Everyone who is at the ticket site when the sale kicks off, will be given a queue number randomly. The online queue system sends you to a virtual waiting room where you wait and are redirected to the ordering system when it is your turn in the queue. Here you have 10 minutes to purchase your tickets.
