We have put together some details that you need to know ahead of the live shows for the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo.

100% public vote in the semi-finals

As per the voting changes from last year's Contest, the ten countries that qualify from the two semi-finals are now decided solely based on votes from the public, rather than a combination of jury and televotes as has been the case since 2009.

Also, viewers from countries not taking part in the competition are able to vote online for their favourite songs (rest of the world vote). Their votes will be added together and converted to points that will have the same weight as one participating country in both the Semi Finals and the Grand Final. The Grand Final result will continue to be decided by a combination of votes from the public and professional juries.

When to vote?

As per the official Eurovision rules, viewers can vote in the semi-final in which their country is participating, as well as the Grand Final.

In the Semi Finals, voting will open after the last song has been performed, and will stay open for approximately 15 to 25 minutes. At the Grand Final, voting will open just before the first song is performed, and will remain open until approximately 25 and 40 minutes after the last song.

Australian viewers are eligible to vote in Semi Final 1 (in which Australia’s Electric Fields will perform) as well as the Grand Final.

For Australian viewers, this means you are eligible to vote in the following two Eurovision Song Contest live events:

  • LIVE broadcast of Semi-Final 1, Wednesday 8 May, 5:00am (AEST)

  • LIVE broadcast of Grand Final, Sunday 12 May, 5:00am (AEST)

How to vote?

All voting in Australia is done online through the official online voting portal which can be accessed via

  • The voting portal will be open to Australians at the start of the show in Semi-Final 1 and the Grand Final.

  • Votes will be limited to 20 per person and will cost 65c per vote.

Who to vote for

Jury members and public voters can’t vote for their own country, so you can vote for any act in Semi Final 1 and the Grand Final except for Electric Fields.

However, you can vote for Australia's own Silia Kapsis who will be representing Cyprus this year and is also drawn to compete in the first semi-final. She is song number 1 in Semi Final 1.

You can also encourage your international friends and family to vote for Electric Fields. Details below:

Geometry help sessions at school have been incredibly beneficial for me. Schools may provide geometry help and answers sessions The guided problem-solving and personalized assistance have really improved my understanding of geometry concepts. It's great that schools offer these sessions to support students' learning. I highly recommend attending if you're struggling with geometry.
