To make this year’s Eurovision Choir of the Year even more exciting, the EBU has added a ‘Super Final’ round to the contest.
The contest debuted on our TV screens back in 2017, where it was hosted in Riga, Latvia. This year’s new format will see all ten choirs perform once, but three of the ten will be selected to perform once again in a gripping second round, in which the winner will be determined by the professional jury.
The three selected choirs will be allocated another three minutes where they can show off their skills once more for a chance to win the contest. After the Super Final, the winner will be announced, with the jury revealing their top three instead of just the winner.
