After the first semi-final on Tuesday it’s time for the second tonight. Eighteen candidates will be presented from the Pala Olympico in Turin, ten of them will go to the final on Saturday. The show is hosted by Alessandro Cattelan, Laura Pausini and Mika. The broadcast starts at 9 pm CEST. You can watch the show in your country or the Eurovision YouTube channel. During this semi-final we also see fragments of the songs from Spain, United Kingdom and Germany that are straight in the final. These candidates performed last night during the jury final. Those performances will also be online afterwards.

The result tonight is based on 50% jury and 50% televoting. The jury already watched last night and determined the votes on the basis of that. The TV audience from the eighteen participating countries, along with those from Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, will vote tonight. Tonight, only the ten finalists will be announced in random order. The full results will follow after the final.
