This is how you can watch the Eurovision Song Contest on YouTube

Eurovision has an official YouTube channel where you can listen to the songs and also watch the event live online. You can find the Youtube channel right here. But, there is a slight problem. If you live in some country outside Europe, then you will not be allowed to watch the live streams, as it is only for viewers in the participating countries. What can you do about this? It is easy!

  • Purchase a VPN subscription to PureVPN (it is super easy and it will only cost you $1).
  • Download their VPN client to your computer.
  • Connect to a server in one of the participating countries.
  • Visit the Eurovision Song Contest on Youtube and enjoy the show!

That is how easy it is. I hope you will enjoy it. You can cancel your VPN subscription afterward, and all you have to pay in total is $1. If you want to keep your VPN, then that is also possible, and you can later use it to watch the European Championship in football online, to watch the Summer Olympics online, to watch BBC, ITV, NBC, and lots of other TV networks online, and so much more.

It might look like a carnival, but it is an artist in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Eurovision Song Contest is divided into three parts.

The first part of the competition is in each participating country in which they select one participant and one song that will represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest.

There are some differences in how they select the song that will represent a country. In some countries, there are big competitions with lots of songs and artists joining, and then a combination of a jury and the viewers vote for a winner. In other countries, a jury just makes the decision, without arranging a big competition or anything.

The second part is the qualification rounds which take place on Tuesday and Thursday in the week of the Eurovision Song Contest.
There are more nations taking part in the competition than the number of countries that actually make it to the final. That is why there are qualification rounds on Tuesday and on Thursday in the week of the Eurovision Song Contest.

The third part is the actual final which is arranged on Saturday. This is when the actual winner is selected.
On Saturday evening, we get to listen to and see the performances of all the songs that have earned themselves a spot in the finale. When all the songs have been performed, the viewers are invited to vote for the best songs for a short amount of time. After this, it is time for the results.

Each country then shares the votes of their own country, and thus in the end, the winner is announced, based on the scores given by the different countries. It is important that the vote is divided in two. Each country first shares a “jury-vote”, meaning that a professional jury gives their scores, and then the viewers share their score. All in all, the votes have a 50/50 importance.
