How To See - And Vote In - Eurovision's Grand Final.

The final round of the Eurovision Song Contest is finally here. Performers from 26 countries are scheduled to put on quite the show Saturday, singing, dancing and wearing extravagant costumes on stage in Stockholm, Sweden. The competition starts at 9 p.m. Central European Summer Time, or 3 p.m. EDT.

You can watch a live stream of the grand finale (http://www.eurovision.tv/page/webtv) here . It also will appear on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=no1v1-2HZ6g) here , though the video isn't available to watch in the United States. 

Watch the opening ceremony below:

The continentwide song contest started in 1956. Today, it's so popular partly because the outcome relies heavily on the viewers. Votes from the general public are responsible for half of a team's final score, with the other half coming from professional juries. Voting starts right after the final song and lasts for 15 minutes via phone, app and text message. But remember: You can't vote for your own country.

This year, American pop star Justin Timberlake will perform his new single, "Can't Stop the Feeling." It's the first time a noncontestant global artist will take the Eurovision stage, (http://metro.co.uk/2016/05/09/justin-timberlake-is-about-to-make-eurovision-history-with-first-performance-by-non-contestant-5870614/) according to Metro.
