    The TSR Eurovision vote 2018!

    Watch: BBC One* | YouTube
    * A TV Licence is required to watch BBC live broadcasts

    Do you like catchy tunes, flamboyant costumes, and ridiculous yet oddly wonderful competition? Well then, I have some good news for you. It's Eurovision time! :awesome:

    All the song scores will show at the top of this very thread page, updated in real-time throughout the show. If you're joining us from the TSR App, then you'll need to view Nul Points in a separate page instead.

    Semi-finals: Tuesday 8th and Thursday 10th May 8:00PM
    Grand final: Saturday 12th May 8:00PM


    How it works

    Vote on each act as they perform throughout the show. When the box at the top displays "Vote now!" next to a country, post in this thread with a rating out of ten to rate their act, e.g. That was fantastic! 8/10. You don't need to say which country your score is for, just make sure to vote at the correct time.

    Voting for each act opens roughly 30 seconds after it starts, and lasts up until the beginning of the next song. You can only vote once on each song. To be sure your vote counts, post a reply near the end of each performance.

    Votes are also counted via Twitter. Using the same x/10 format and hashtag #eurovision, your vote will be counted alongside votes from TSR.

    What are the "Rating" and "Controversy" scores?

    Rating is the average of all users' scores, with some clever maths to make it a bit clearer how the songs rank against each other. Controversy is the standard deviation of all submitted scores, which means the more divided opinion there is on a song, the higher the controversy rating will be.

    Can this predict the result?

    Of course! But whether that prediction is right or not, who can say?

    It's not working! Help?

    Don't panic, first just try reloading the page. And remember, it might take a little while for votes to be counted up, so please be patient! You can also use the "view map" button to get the full country list appearing in a separate window, if you need to.

    If you're using the mobile thread beta, the scoreboard won't appear for you at the top of the page unfortunately. Not sure if I can sneak in a hotfix for this before the contest, but I'll see if it's possible.

    Edit: Hotfix sneaked. :ninja: The scoreboard should now be available for all non-app users. :top:

    New feature for this year btw: Half-points (e.g. 6.5/10) should now be counted correctly. Not tested it yet though so tonight's semi-final will be the guinea pig to see if my code works. :p:

    Eh, it's all political. Looking at the main countries that automatically get through, I'm surprised but actually, the UK's is the only interesting one that isn't a boring soppy love song.
