Tel Aviv 2019

Here is a list of the spokespeople announced so far for this year’s Grand Final!

Among the 23 (so far) are a number of familiar faces...

With the Grand Final less than one week away, we’ve comprised a list of the spokespeople that have been announced so far. They will each be revealing the country that received the 12 points from their respective national juries.

As the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 approaches, more and more broadcasters have been announcing their spokespeople. The role of the spokespeople is to appear in the voting sequence to reveal which entry the national juries have given their 12 points to. Previously, prior to the change in the voting system back in 2016, the spokespeople announced the top 10 of each country (televote and jury vote together).

Here is the list of the 23 spokespeople that have been announced so far:

Familiar faces

Of course, it is not uncommon for former representatives returning to the contest in following years as spokespeople. Last year, the Grand Final in Lisbon featured a number of former artists in its voting sequence. Here are the names of the former participants who are returning as spokespeople this year:

  • Australia – Electric Fields (Australia Decides 2019)
  • Denmark – Rasmussen (2018)
  • Israel – Izhar Cohen (1978)
  • Georgia – Gaga Abashidze (2018)
  • Romania – Ilinca (2017)
  • Russia – Ivan Bessonov (Eurovision Young Musicians 2018)
  • Slovenia – Lea Sirk (2018)
  • Sweden – Eric Saade (2011)
  • Switzerland – Sinplus (2012)

We’ll be sure to keep you updated when the full line-up of spokespeople is announced. Be sure to stay updated by following @ESCXTRA on Twitter@escxtra on Instagram and liking our Facebook page for the latest updates! We’ll also be posting plenty of content on our YouTube in the run up to Tel Aviv!

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
