Both semi-finals will have a different jury of five members, and the final will have a jury of ten international experts.

The second semi-final of Destination Eurovision 2019 will be broadcast live on Saturday 19th, at 9pm CET, and last just under three hours. The lineup of the international jurors are:

As with the first semi-final, the jury will help select the four artists to reach the final and join the four already selected last weekend.
