Eurovision Semi-Finals 2 Tonight! Here’s All You Need To Know

Ever since we listened to Nicky’s debut single, ‘Sunlight’ and news came out about him representing Ireland at Eurovision, back in Janurary, we’ve been waiting for the day we’d get to see him compete at the song contest and perform at the Globe Arena. Well… That day is finally here! Tonight at 9:00pm CET (8:00pm UK time) the 2nd Eurovision Semi-Finals will take place and Europe will have the chance to vote for their favourite country.

It’s all been building up to this moment, so it’s super important that we step it up and vote, vote, vote! What do I mean by vote? Get all of our friends and family to help us as well. Here’s how it’s going to go down:

ABOUT NICKY & TEAM IRELAND
They will be the 7th performers – That means that we will have to vote for Number 07. Remember this number!

WHERE TO WATCH LIVE
Each participating country will be broadcasting the Semi-Finals on their respective networks. The U.K. will broadcast it on BBC 4. For those who live outside of Europe, you can watch the live stream at Eurovision.tv. (play the video to watch live)

WHO CAN VOTE?
Only the other countries who are part of the 2nd Semi-Final: United Kingdom, Albania, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Georgia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Switzerland, and Ukraine. Ireland can’t vote for its own representative.

HOW TO VOTE?
The voting window opens after the last song has been performed, and ends 15 minutes later. There are 3 ways to vote:

  • The Eurovision Official App.
  • Telephone and/or SMS. (The numbers will vary for each country, only digits that won’t change are the last two – In Nicky’s case: 07). So please remember his number!
  • Televoters determine 50% of the outcome and professional juries the other 50%.

    So now that you know everything, copy this post’s link and repost it on Twitter, Facebook and anywhere else you can think of. Come on, guys! Let’s take Nicky to the finals! Use the hashtag #NickyByrneEurovision07 while tweeting during the show, so we can make it a trending topic!
