The voting age-groups

The viewers vote for their favourite number, based on their age group. One either can vote by phone or with the use of the Melodifestivalen app.

Before being able to vote, the app users must register their age. The viewers are allocated into the following seven age groups:

  • 3-9 years old, Green group

  • 16-29 years old, Blue group
  • 30-44 years old, Purple group

Combined voting results

There are eight categories in all, one is the televoting and the rest are the seven age-groups. Each category gives 58 points in total at the finals, distributed to the acts accordingly. Also the change of the number of countries in the international jury, from eleven to eight was implemented so that the number of countries match the number of voting categories of the public. At the end of the voting process, the juries will decide 50% of the votes and the public vote will provide the remaining 50% of the points.
