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