EUROVISION 2013: VOTING SYSTEM CHANGES
The voting for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 is about to change a bit after first information reaching oikotimes.com from various national broadcasters – awaiting the confirmation and explanations of the European Broadcasting Union. The change will be spotted in the combined voting of jury and public voting.
Up to now the top ten of the jury voting with the top ten of the televoting was combined in order to give each national voting. From this year on the combination of the two voting will take place based on the total ranking of all countries in the jury and public voting aiming to assist countries which somehow and unfairly sometimes misses the top ten.
In the very end there will be no change in the 1-12 points system on the scoreboard.
we are still awaiting further explanations and the comments of the EBU
