For the second year in a row, the semi-finals were purely decided by the televote – well, with the exception of San Marino – however, the final is still decided by both the jurors and the televote, which has been the case, since 2009 now. Once again this year, the EBU revealed the full list of all the jurors from the 37 participating countries of this year’s edition.

The 2024 Jurors

The jury in each participating country, consists of 5 members. This year, it would seem that there has been no errors involved with any of the jurors, since all countries list all 5 members, unlike in past years, when certain members were either replaced or completely excluded. The juries in each country consist of music professionals, who work within the music industry and all who are tasked with ranking each performing song in the final, purely based from a musical stand point. However, it has to be said, that one jury member could potentially face trouble for expressing a certain view, more on that later.

With 37 countries taking part in the 2024 contest, that means this year’s list includes 185 members. We’ve taken a closer look into the list, and pointed out some familiar names, which took the task this year to rank the songs in the final. Among the names of jurors, we find certain former participants as well, these include: Pia Maria (Austria 2022), Nigar “Nikki” Jamal (Azerbaijan 2011 – winner), Bára Juránková (Vesna – Czechia 2023), Jesper Groth (Fyr og Flamme – Denmark 2021), Diljá (Iceland 2023), Lidia Isac (Moldova 2016), Luke Black (Serbia 2023), Lea Sirk (Slovenia 2018) and Robin Bengtsson (Sweden 2017), just to name a few.

If we dig even deeper into certain names, we also find songwriters who were involved in national final entries, singers who have participated in the national finals from this year and even a certain former Junior Eurovision winner. Among these, just to name some, we have: Olimpia Smajlaj (Albanian national final 2024), Gail Attard and Haley Azzopardi (Maltese national final 2024), Lars Horn Lavik (Norwegian national final 2024 – composer of “My AI”), Annprincess (Norwegian national final 2024) and finally, the first ever Junior Eurovision winner Dino Jelusić (Croatia 2003 – JESC winner).

One juror, might get into trouble

As pointed out at the top of the article, a certain juror member did eventually come with a statement, which could potentially lead to some sort of consequences. However, the statement was made after the results were revealed during the live show Saturday night, so most likely, it will not affect the final results.

The jury member in question is Daniel Johansen Elmrhari from Norway, also known as Daniel Owen. The Norwegian jury member shared a statement after the results were revealed during the live show, that he was sorry that Norway awarded Israel points.

Stig Karlsen, who is the head of delegation for Norway has said:

  • We wish to emphasize that the jury must judge the song, artist and performance without any political or other non-musically viewpoints. With Daniel Owen‘s statement, it might look like we have a breach of the rules.

The incident has been reported to the EBU for evaluation.

Having a closer look into how Israel was ranked by the Norwegian jury, the Israeli song ranked overall 3rd, which granted Israel 8 points from the Norwegian jury. Three of the jury members ranked Israel in their top 3, while one ranked them 6th, meanwhile the last member ranked the song 23rd out of 25* – (Despite Netherlands disqualification, the entry was still ranked by all the juries during the second dress rehearsal, hence why Norway judged 25 songs in the final, except their own entry) – entries, which could indicate that this was Daniel Owen‘s score. It must be said, that it is no longer revealed by the EBU, which jury rank belong to what juror, in order to protect the juries from potential harassment.

If #YOU wish to personally have a deeper look into certain results, all details can be found on the official page.

Is there some jury members that #YOU recognize and do #YOU think the juries still hold too much power?
