Welcome to the Grand Final of 2020’s Juke Box Jury Championship. The eight winners of our regular shows, which started back in early March, were brought together at the start of this week. Two Semi Finals later, we have our four songs and this Grand Final.

No hit, miss, or maybe, today. It’s all about the points as we look to find our Juke Box Jury winner. It’s not about who would have won the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s about which song is our favourite.

In this Grand Final, Samantha Ross Middleton join Ewan Spence to find the winner from Lithuania, Iceland, The Netherlands, and Bulgaria.

Eurovision Insight Podcast: Juke Box Jury 2020 Championship, Semi Final 2

Juke Box Jury normally ends as we head to the Song Contest, but as we all know this year is a bit different. And that means Juke Box Jury is a little different too.

The eight winners of each reegular show have made it to the Championship. Over two Semi Finals and a Grand Final, we’re going to find a winner. It’s not about who would have won the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s about which song is our favourite. It’s time for the second Semi Final!

In the second Semi Final, Samantha Ross and Matthew Ker join Ewan Spence to judge the entries from Sweden, Russia, Lithuania, and The Netherlands.

Eurovision Song Contest 2020: Juke Box Jury Championship Semi Final 1

Every other year, Juke Box Jury previews the songs before the ESC Insight team head to the Press Centre to bring you the daily news from backstage at the Eurovision Song Contest, as TV and radio audiences around the world voted for their winner.

As we all know, that’s not going to happen in Rotterdam in 2020.

So how do we bring this year’s story to a conclusion here on ESC Insight? Welcome to the ‘post-season’ of Juke Box Jury and the first Championship edition. With eight winners from previous shows, this week we’ll have two Semi Finals of four song (debuting Monday 11th and Wednesday 13th of May), with the top two from each qualifying for the Grand Final on Friday 15th May.

It’s not about who would have won the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s about which song is our favourite. Let the competition begin!

In the first Semi Final, Ross Middleton and Matthew Ker join Ewan Spence to judge the entries from Armenia, Iceland, the Czech Republic, and Bulgaria
