At this very moment the first dress rehearsal of the 1st semi final is taking place, while tonight at 9pm CET everything  is ready for  the 1st Semi Final Jury Show. The show will take place exactly as we will see it being broadcast live on our screens. Tonight the five member national juries from the 18 countries participating in the first semi final, plus those of Italy, Spain and United Kingdom will cast their votes. Jury voting equals 50% of the votes to determine tomorrow’s qualifiers. Jury’s show is always recorded as a back up in case something goes wrong during the live transmission.
