The top 20 contestants will be selected by a ranking voting system, where each country contestant is awarded two sets of points such as 12, 10, 8-1. After the presentation of the scores from the panel of judges and votes received from the general public, points will then be combined providing one score for each song. The results from the judging panel and the general public shall be ranked based on the highest to lowest votes received. Points are allocated from 12 points for the top-ranked song, 10 points for the second highest-ranked song, and the remaining points from 8 to 1 point, ranked from third to last. This process is based on the Eurovision Song Contest voting system. This means that there are two separate sets of votes awarded from the judges, as well as the general public in order for the contestants to receive a fair vote.
