Forty-three countries came to Eurovision 2018, but only 26 managed to make it to the final. And on Friday evening they all competed in the jury final, which accounts for 50% of their overall score. During the show they faced a panel of music professionals. But in the video above they face the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals.
In recent weeks our review videos have primarily featured Chris and William from the UK and Padraig from Ireland. But we’ve had more than 20 wiwibloggers on the ground in Lisbon. They’re not always visible, but they’ve been editing videos, running live streams, standing in interview queues and much, much more. In this video we bring many of them together. Among the faces are livestream queen Robyn (New Zealand), selfie stick maestro Deban (UK), videographer Ron (Israel), permanent press conference attendee Sebastian (Australia) and William’s sister Suzanne, video editor Cinan (Bulgaria) and special guest and table mate Ben (United States).
We’ve picked our jury show winners and also the acts we think actually won. Now you let us know yours.
