After viewers have cast their votes, the results of each professional jury are presented, with countries receiving 1-8 and 10 points being displayed on-screen instead of 1-7, which had been the case since 2006, and the national spokesperson announcing only the country to which they award 12 points.
After the results of the professional juries are presented, the televoting points from all participating countries are combined, providing one score for each song.
The winner of the contest was Ukraine with the song "1944", written and performed by Jamala.
This was Ukraine's second win and its first since 2004.
The results of countries finishing between 11th and 26th in the public vote are automatically added to the scoreboard, with only the results of the top ten countries being announced by the hosts.
