The interval acts included Alcazar performing 'Crying at the Discoteque', a tribute performance of the 1974 winning song 'Waterloo' by past winners – Carola (Sweden 1991), Charlotte Perrelli (Sweden 1999) and Conchita Wurst (Austria 2014); and Loreen performing her new single 'Forever' and 2023 winning song 'Tattoo'.

They also received televote points from every country except Israel although only one country's televote (Sweden) awarded them the full 12 points. The Australian public awarded Switzerland 7 points.
