During the voting procedure in the final of this year's Eurovision Song Contest, the points 1 up to 7 will appear on the score board as soon as a connection is being made with a country. At last year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest, this already happened with the points 1 to 5.
The European Broadcasting Union decided this to save time at the end of the show. Due to the length of the voting procedure, viewing rates drop and the show loses excitement. Some fans, however, think that this decision makes it less exciting, because only the top-3 points 8, 10 and 12 will be given.
During the Heads of Delegation meetings, Monday and Tuesday in Athens, the voting procedure will be clarified.
What do you think about the decision to shorten the voting procedure?
