The winner of Eurovision 2024 has been crowned.

If you missed the final, here’s how you can catch up on the action.

Who was in the Eurovision 2024 grand final?

Some 37 countries took part in this year’s Eurovision, and 25 made it through to the grand final.
But Australia — which has competed since 2014 when Jessica Mauboy made a guest appearance — was not among those performing.
That’s because earlier this week, along with Azerbaijan, Poland, Moldova, and Iceland.
Sweden’s act — Marcus & Martinus, with their song Unforgettable — was among those in the grand final, having secured automatic entry because Sweden is hosting the event this year.
Countries known as the Big Five also automatically progressed. They included France, for whom Slimane is performing his song Mon Amour; Germany (ISAAK performing Always on the Run); Italy (Angelina Mango performing La Noia); Spain (Nebulossa performing ZORRA); and the United Kingdom (Olly Alexander performing Dizzy).

Other countries in the grand final included:

  • Ukraine: alyona alyona & Jerry Heil, performing Teresa & Maria.
  • Greece: Marina Satti, performing ZARI
  • Norway: Gåte, performing Ulveham
  • Ireland: Bambie Thug, performing Doomsday Blue
  • Lithuania: Silvester Belt, performing Luktelk
  • Israel: Eden Golan, performing Hurricane
  • Luxembourg: TALI, performing Fighter
  • Estonia: 5MIINUST x Puuluup, performing (nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi
  • Serbia: TEYA DORA, performing RAMONDA
  • Armenia: LADANIVA, performing Jako
  • Finland: Windows95man, performing No Rules!
  • Cyprus: Silia Kapsis, performing Liar
  • Switzerland: Nemo, performing The Code
  • Georgia: Nutsa Buzaladze, performing Firefighter
  • Slovenia: Raiven, performing Veronika
  • Austria: Kaleen, performing We Will Rave
  • Portugal: iolanda, performing Grito
  • Croatia: Baby Lasagna, performing Rim Tim Tagi Dim
  • Latvia: Dons, performing Hollow
The Netherlands was also due to appear in the final, represented by Dutch artist Joost Klein with his song Europapa.
But on Saturday evening, Eurovision’s organisers said the 26-year-old had been disqualified following a complaint made by a female member of the production crew.
“Swedish police have investigated a complaint made by a female member of the production crew after an incident following his performance in Thursday night’s semifinal,” the EBU said in a statement.

“While the legal process takes its course, it would not be appropriate for him to continue in the contest.”

How was the Eurovision 2024 winner decided?

The same way others have been in previous years — through a vote.

During the final, people in participating countries (and in some non-participating countries) voted by phone, text message, or via an app.

The viewers’ votes — which are limited to 20 a person, and made public at the end of the programme to heighten the suspense — were added to those of five-person professional juries from each country.
Songs that were placed at the top were awarded 12 points; the song in second place 10; the song in third place 8; the song in fourth place 7; the song in fifth place 6; the song in sixth place 5; the song in seventh place 4; the song in eighth place 3; the song in ninth place 2; and the song in tenth place 1.
After the votes are counted a final winner is declared.

The public, nor the professional juries could vote for their own country.

How can I catch up on the Eurovision 2024 grand final?

SBS will air an Access All Areas prime-time broadcast at 7.30pm on Sunday. It will be hosted by Myf Warhurst and Joel Creasey, and feature artist interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses from Courtney Act, who is on the ground in Malmö, Sweden.
You can also watch the final replay via .

Was the Eurovision winner awarded a prize?

The winner did not take home a cash prize, instead receiving a glass microphone — which has been awarded to every winner since 2008.
The winning country also typically hosts the event the following year.
