Voting this year includes votes from a jury and the viewers. After the international jury groups have cast their votes, all viewers will be provided with new votes, in order to continue to influence the results even after the international jury has had its say. The public voting results will be determined using the age group system. Each age group’s vote will carry a score of 12, 10, 8–1.
