Eurovision Song Contest unveils rule changes
GENEVA (AFP) - The Eurovision Song Contest, an annual music extravaganza affectionately mocked for its voting system, will take place under new rules next year, organisers said on Monday.
The European Broadcasting Union said the names of jury members will for the first time be published a week ahead of the event and their votes will be released immediately after the winner is announced.
Some 26 countries take part in the final of the contest and the winner is decided half by jury and half by viewers around Europe.
With an estimated 125 million viewers, Eurovision is a bigger broadcasting event than US football's Super Bowl.
