The first phase of online voting has now begun!
In a Eurovision first, viewers from across the world can watch a recap and then vote for their favourite performances at https://vote.junioreurovision.tv/
When going onto the site viewers can see a recap of all of the performances, and viewers can then vote. Voters will also have the option to watch longer one-minute clips from each participant’s rehearsal. This first round of voting will end on Sunday, 26 November, at 15:59 CET.
For the first time ever the results of the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be determined by an online audience vote in addition to the usual National juries. National juries will consist of a mixture of both music industry professionals aswell as kids. In a Eurovision first, viewers from around the world will be able to vote!
The second phase of online voting takes place during the live show on 26th November, and starts after the last performance. Voting will then be open for 15 minutes after the last performance. International viewers can vote for a minimum of three countries and a maximum of five. In another Eurovision first, you can also vote for your own country’s song. The votes counted will then be turned into points. The amount of points will be determined by the percentage of votes received. For example if a song receives 20% of the votes, it will receive 20% of the available points. The public vote will count for 50% of the final result. The other 50% will come from the professional juries. The country with the most points will be declared the winner!
