During the semi-final and Grand Final stage of the festival, the voting procedure will differ from the voting of the first two shows which took place on Tuesday and Wednesday. Whilst a combined vote will once again take place, the shares of the vote have altered.
The voting will be as follows; 40% of the results will be decided by a public televote, 30% will be determined by an expert jury and a final 30% will be settled via an audience vote. These votes will then be combined with the votes from the first two shows of the festival (disregarding the results from Thursday’s cover show).
Once these votes have been combined, the Top 16 acts which receive the highest scores will qualify to the Grand Final of the show which will take place tomorrow, Saturday 14 February.
The Nuove Proposte Grand Final will also take place this evening where the 4 finalists will be distributed into pairs to perform their entries at the Newcomers stage of the festival. As with the Campioni section, the qualifiers will be decided via a 40/30/30 combined vote.
The 2 acts which receive the highest percentage of votes will go on to qualify to the Superfinal stage of the show. The votes will be reset and the voting procedure will begin again, with the act receiving the highest percentage of the votes going on to win the Nuove Proposte section of the 2015 Sanremo Music Festival.
