It has been reported that the voting procedure for one of the biggest music competitions in the world, Eurovision, will take place in Liverpool in May, and there have been some changes to the voting procedure as reported by the organizers.
Specifically, this year is going to be a little bit different as the voting rules will change and the main change has to do with the semi-final nights. Rather than the previous combined voting of viewers and an expert jury, which has been used since 2009, the ten best songs now will be selected solely on the basis of the public vote, rather than the previous combined vote of both viewers and the expert jury reports Telegraf.
Moreover, for the first time ever in the history of this competition, viewers living in countries that do not participate in the competition will be able to vote online.
VOTES IN TWO SEMI-FINALS: SMS MESSAGES DETAILS
In two semi-finals and the grand final, the votes of the citizens of these three countries will be collected and presented together as the votes of one country.
The viewers will have to pay the subscription fee if they wish to vote, otherwise, they will not be able to do so. It does not change anything for viewers from countries who participate in the competition, which means that countries participating in Eurovision will be able to send a certain number of SMS messages.
We would like to remind you that the Eurovision Song Contest is held in Liverpool due to the fact that Ukraine, the country that won the competition last year, cannot meet the organization's conditions due to the current situation in that country.
We are looking forward to a great show with lots of interesting songs this year. It will be a phenomenal atmosphere on the night! Many are disappointed considering that the competition will not be held in Ukraine, but this could be sensed already last year. The situation in Ukraine is still not calming down and the question is how long the chaos will last.
