After 13 juries have voted, Australia has received points from three countries - Bulgaria, Hungary and Ukraine.


The full results and placings won't be known until Euro Jury final results are revealed on May 7 (European time) but for now each nation's Top 10 (with Top 3 in bold) is revealed.

Since 2013 fan site Eurovoix has been holding 'Euro Jury' a contest that sees artists from all over Europe vote on the songs and combined it with a public vote.

The last two Eurovision winning songs 'Toy' and 'Arcade' were former Euro Jury champions while it also has a strong record of predicting high scoring jury songs.

When looking purely at which songs former Eurovision, national final and Junior Eurovision artists go for, it successfully picked 'Sound of Silence' as a clear jury winner, while jury favourites like 'Don't Come Easy', 'Nobody But You' and 'Too Late for Love' all finished high in their respective years.
