In the Grand Final, juries and viewers from all 42 participating countries can vote again, after the 26 finalists have performed.
Hosting country's entry will perform at number 22 after the random drawing earlier this year.
Once the voting window has closed the presenters will call upon spokespersons in all 42 countries and ask them to reveal their jury points live on air.
Next, viewers' points from all 42 countries will be added up, and revealed from the lowest to the highest, culminating into a climax that will eventually reveal the winner of the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest.
