The EBU have confirmed that there will be small changes made to way in which the online voting will work for this years Junior Eurovision Song Contest, as well as the way the votes will be presented.
For this years contest, the voting will remain the same as it has been since 2017: 50% jury vote and 50% online vote. However, unlike in previous years, this year, you will only be able to vote for 3 countries during the live final. Previously, you were able to vote for between 3-5 countries, and the voting was open 2 days before the final, and closed just before the live final.
The EBU is also thinking about changing the way in which the points are presented. Previously, each spokesperson would read out only the 12 points from their national jury, with points 1-10 automatically appearing on screen. But due to the low number of participating countries this year, the EBU is debating on whether or not to have the spokespersons read out the 8, 10 and 12 points.
Each of the 13 spokespersons will be presenting their country’s jury votes from their own countries. This will be the first time this has been done since 2012.
