Viewers from all the countries taking part in the First Semi-Final are invited to vote via the official app, telephone and/or SMS. The voting window will be open after the last song has been performed, and will end 15 minutes later. Televoters determine 50% of the outcome while professional juries do so with the other half of the voting combination according to the performances of yesterday’s Jury Semi-Final show.

Apart from the participating countries, these are the direct qualifying countries that will vote in the First Semi-Final:

  • France
  • Spain
  • Israel

Remember, in case of a tie between two or more songs in the combined ranking between public televote and jury, the song that obtains a better ranking from the viewers will prevail. Full split results will be revealed after the Grand Final to keep the excitement until the end of the contest.

Today’s show will feature guest performances by the last year’s winner Netta and Dana International, who won the competition for Israel in 1998. Netta will open the semifinal performing her winning song ‘Toy’ in a special version along with a bunch of dancers. Also, the viewers will be able to watch a sneak peek of the Big 5 performances by Bilal Hassani, Miki and Kobi Marimi, who are automatic qualifiers.
