Voting system improvement at the ESC?

    50/50 system - improvement

    I would like to present my idea that is connected with the current voting system at the ESC. As we know, this is a combination of both telephone vote and the votes of juries made up of music professionals. Currently, in a case of a draw, the more points a country in the televoting receive, the more points in the 50/50 receive. I would like to change it. Therefore, I suggest using the count-back methode in which the song that received points from both jury and viewers is the winner of a draw. If there is still a tie, the second tie-breaker is to count the number of twelve points to each entry in the tie. Tie-breaks continue with ten points, eight points, and so on until the tie is resolved. Eventually, when these two tie-breakers do not work, a country with bigger amount of points from the televoting is located higher in a rank. Exactly, the same procedure is used in order to determine all draws in the finally results in the 50/50 system.

    For instance, I present the results of Holland in the ESC 2009 Final:

    * Blue - Jury
    * Green - Televoting

    50/50 system:

    12 points: :no: Norway -> 12 + 8 = 20
    10 points: :az: Azerbaijan -> 7 + 6 = 13
    8 points: :tr: Turkey -> 0 + 12 = 12
    7 points: :is: Iceland -> 8 + 4 = 12
    6 points: :fr: France -> 10 + 2 = 12
    5 points: :am: Armenia -> 0 + 10 = 10
    4 points: :ba: Bosnia & Herzegovina -> 0 + 7 = 7
    3 points: :uk: United Kingdom -> 4 + 3 = 7
    2 points: :de: Germany -> 6 + 0 = 6
    1 point: :gr: Greece -> 0 + 5 = 5

    And now, points with improvement as far tie-breakers are concerned:

    12 points: :no: Norway -> 12 + 8 = 20
    10 points: :az: Azerbaijan-> 7 + 6 = 13
    8 points: :fr: France -> 10 + 2 = 12
    7 points: :is: Iceland -> 8 + 4 = 12
    6 points: :tr: Turkey -> 0 + 12 = 12
    5 points: :am: Armenia -> 0 + 10 = 10
    4 points: :uk: United Kingdom -> 4 + 3 = 7
    3 points: :ba: Bosnia & Herzegovina -> 0 + 7 = 7
    2 points: :de: Germany -> 6 + 0 = 6
    1 point: :gr: Greece -> 0 + 5 = 5

    What do you think about this idea ? Is this a good improvement of the results ?
