Who is who in the Armenian Jury


The voting system will suffer pretty big changes Melodifestivalen styleIt is the biggest change since 1975. The previous years, results were presented as a combined result 50 per cent jury and viewers.

This year each national spokesperson from all the participating countries will be called in to present the points of their professional jury. After that, the televoting points will be combined to provide just one score for each country. As at the Melodifestivalen, the host will announced these televoting results starting with the country receiving the fewest points and ending with the country receiving the highest amount of points.
