There are 9 shows in total
The Evening Preview Show(referred to as the ‘Jury Show’ at previous Contests) is a full run through of the show that takes place the night before the televised version. In the case of the Grand Final, it’s when the international juries cast their votes for the participants. Audiences can stay for a randomised version of the qualifier/points reveals, as the presenters practise for different scenarios.
The Afternoon Preview Show(referred to as the ‘Family Show’ at previous Contests) is a full run through of the show that takes place earlier in the day of the Live TV Show; it serves as one final rehearsal for the artists and crew, and as the name suggests, it’s much more convenient for those who wish to bring younger Eurovision fans. Again, the Family Show features a randomly generated presentation of the qualifiers and points.
The Live TV Show is exactly that: a live television show. Audiences across Europe (and Australia) will get to cast their votes. No randomisations this time – it’s all for real!
Interest in Eurovision tickets is expected to be high, but as fans who have travelled to a Contest before will tell you: traditionally it can be easier to secure tickets for the Preview Shows. These shows have all of the content and performances of the broadcast shows, but leave you free to watch the Live TV Show as it was intended… on the television!
It has also been announced by the United Kingdom Government that around 3,000 tickets will be made available for those Ukrainians who have been forced from their homes and are living in the UK – meaning they can attend one of the Live Shows and help mark the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra’s victory at last year’s Contest.
