In 2016 at Eurovision changed the rules of counting of votes. Early points from the jury and spectators were added and participants received one overall rating for each country.

Now the judges and the audience will award points to performers separately, and will be aired to announce two scores. With this system the audience until the last minute will not know the name of the winner. After all, the voices of the audience will be lead to announce the starting of the country that received the fewest points and ending with the country with the highest number of points.

In case of equal number of points, the winner is the participant with the highest number of votes from viewers.

Members of the national jury are the stars out where their favorite song is in the first place, second favorite song – the second, third favorite song is the third, and so on until their least favourite song is in the latest place.

Then the rankings of televoting and juries from each participating country are used to calculate the scores, where the highest rating the song gets 12 points, second in the ranking of song – 10 points and the remaining points from 8 to 1 are given to the songs ranked 3 to 10.
