On Saturday, the Danish national final Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2015 will take place, and this year the voting will be different from in the previous years. This year there will only be one round of voting as opposed to the previous years, where 3 songs went through to a super final, and the winner was decided after another round of voting.
For the first time since 2008, regional juries will be introduced again, when it is decided who will be the winner, and the votes of the public will also be revealed in a whole new way. The names of the jury members were announce a few days ago, and you can see who they are here.
The 5 regional juries are voting from the 5 Danish regions: the Capital region, the Zealand region, the Midtjylland region, the Nordjylland region, and the South Denmark region, and they will vote right after the 10 songs have been performed on stage on Saturday.
The points will be just as we know them from ESC, namely 1-8, 10 and 12 points will be given to the 10 songs, which means each jury have 58 points, and combined the 5 juries will give a total of 290 points.
When the juries have given their point, the points from the tele voting will be revealed soon after. The public can start voting right before the first performance begins, and the voting will end 5 minutes after the jury votes have been announced.
The tele voting will also consist of 290 points, which will be given out based on how many percent of the votes, each song will get, e.g. if a song gets 10% of the votes, it will get 29 of the tele voting points.
In case of a tie, the tele voting will be deciding of who will win Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2015, and represent Denmark in Eurovision 2015.
Do you like these new rules, or do you think it was more exciting with a super final?
