1 thought on “Sweden: Melodifestivalen Voting Changed To Give The Public More Power”

  1. Even with this system Robin would have won last year with 3-6 points gap ( Nano didn’t receive jury points from one country)

    With the app voting the maximum difference has been around 30 points between first and last place finishers….with new system it will become close to 40 points!!
    Whereas with jury 1st and 3rd place can get separated by as much as 44 points!!

    This is still not a solution
    In my mind there are multiple solutions, Sadly I have no means of making them reach Christer!!
    Maybe you guys can help!!

    1) limit total no. of votes allowed on the app ( so no one can send in 60 votes ) like maybe a maximum of 20 votes
    2) limit the number of acts you can vote for ( so maybe a maximum of 4 acts can be voted for)

    3) Allow 5 votes only for one act, max 4 for the next favourite, then max 3 for next favourite
    No two acts can be given same number of votes( expect 0 votes for more than one)
    So if you have given only 1 vote to an act….you can give not give any other act only one vote!!

    4) Make app votes account for only a proportion(25% to a max of 50%) of televote points and paid votes the remaining (50%- 75%)
    Will make for a more dramatic points reveal!!

    The following two methods are both based on nullifying the votes of people voting for all songs!!One act will always receive 0 points or close to it!!

    5) Use standard deviations rather than percentages to assign points for the vote like someone suggested
    ( So act with median score will get 39.4 points always and depending on vote distribution the remaining points will be given… for this time the mean was 1130000 and standard error was 79000, for 1 Standard error difference point difference is 11.4 points)
    Result would be : televote, total, position

    Robin – 83 , 179 , 2nd(-1)
    Nano – 110, 186, 1st(+1)
    Jon ft Aninia – 77 , 133 , 3rd (=)
    Mariette – 31 , 93 , 5th (-1)
    Benjamin – 15 , 69 , 6th (-1)
    Wiktoria- 88, 117 , 4th (+2)
    Ace – 9 , 44 , 7th (=)
    Boris- 7 , 42 , 8th (=)
    Lisa- 0, 16 , 11th (-2)
    Anton- 29 , 35 , 9th (+1)
    FO & O- 15 , 22 , 10th (+1)
    Owe- 8 , 9 , 12th(=)

    This involves use of statistical tools and may not be clear to all,
    An easier method yields similar results

    6) Another method is to subtract the votes received by the act with lowest votes from all acts and then convert the remaining votes into percentage!!
    Like this year the points would have been- televote , total , position
    Robin – 82, 178 , 2nd(-1)
    Nano – 108 , 184 , 1st(+1)
    Jon ft Aninia – 77 , 133 , 3rd(=)
    Mariette – 31 , 93 , 5th (-1)
    Benjamin – 16 , 70 , 6th(-1)
    Wiktoria- 87 , 116, 4th(+2)
    Ace – 9 , 44 , 7th(=)
    Boris -8 , 43 , 8th(=)
    Lisa – 0 , 16 , 11th(-2)
    Anton -30 , 36 , 9th(+1)
    FO & O – 16 , 23 , 10th(+1)
    Owe – 9 , 10 , 12th(=)
