EBU has released through the official Eurovision website the rules of the 2024 contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden.
What needs to be pointed out is that the National Juries and the National Audiences will be combined according to a ration which will be decided later. More specifically the rules specify:
“In the Final; the points of the National Audiences and of the National Juries shall be combined according to a ratio which is determined by the EBU, subject to the Reference Group approval, to calculate the official result of the Final.
For example, if the ratio is 50-50, the points of the National Jury carry the same weight as the points of the National Audiences”
As it seems there are also still no plans to introduce the use of Auto-Tune in the contest and use of such or lipsyncing are explicitly prohibited. The pre-recorded backing vocals are still allowed in this year’s contest too.
Do you think that there will be a later announcement for a change in the ratio of combined voting, by EBU? Let us know in the comments section below!
