In 2019, the presentation of the votes changes slightly. The order in which the televoting results are revealed is determined by the ranking of the jury result. The announcement of the televoting results will start with the country receiving the fewest points from the juries and end with the country that received the highest points from the juries. The presenters shall announce the sum of points that each song has received from the votes of the televote across all participating countries.

Not sure how this will feel on the night, the face crack on the Swedish delegation last year waiting until the very end to receive 21 points would've been a picture!

This would’ve been amazing last year but how well it works could be very dependent on the year. And to the casual viewer I imagine it will be even more confusing and all over the place

Unless a country gets nothing from the televote, it should be less obvious at the time who has come last with the public and save some embarrassment

The face crack of Sweden going from sure winner to only receiving 21 points from the televote last year would've been one of the greatest TV moments ever so I welcome this change. I do agree thought that it will be a tad confusing for the casual viewer, but they were already confused by the whole televote reveal anyway so no biggie.

Hmm, I think I like it? It does stop the obvious play of knowing the winner beforehand which is great. And polished jury successes getting very little will be very fun to see.

Big movements still can come from nowhere I guess and the songs that seem like contenders will stay in the running for much longer.

Ugh, it would’ve been SO iconic last year, but also tense with Israel/Cyprus

Somebody's also done a mock up of how it would have been last year;

Plus from what I could tell;

2017 would have been a lot more tense for the briefest moment after Bulgaria got what would have, in any other year, been a winning televote and nobody knowing if Portugal had won or not.

2016 would have had Ukraine's win even more tense with them leapfrogging Russia and not knowing how Australia's televote had worked out.

So on the basis of how every split reveal so far would have worked out then this could work out pretty well.

This would have been incredible last year, as said re: Sweden!!

Of course that means now it's changed, this'll be a year where it doesn't really matter and doesn't add much excitement laugh.gif

I had to read through this about 5 times to understand what the new format is but now I have got my head around this I think this is a good move. x

Hi all,

BJ old skooler here.

Has this been announced officially?

I really like the change, it definitely seems the best way to present the result. It does take a little excitement out in that it's not as immediately obvious who has the highest televote and where everyone ranks in the televote. But there is excitement working up the jury board and finding out what everyone's got in the televote.

I think the headache for the producers with the previous voting was that for in Ukraine, Bulgaria received the second highest televote but it wasn't clear to Portugal that they had won (even though they had both the highest jury and televotes).

Also, hypothetically, there could even be a case where televote winner doesn't receive enough points to overtake a jury winner, but may assume they've won overall. For example, last year had Austria had a much greater final score, Israel might have assumed they'd won, but a tight leaderboard may have meant they didn't. The new voting covers this off.

Bring on 2019 yahoo.gif cheer.gif
