Four IDSF licensed judges from non-participating countries will act as a jury in this year's EDC. After each performance, each jury member awards the performance with 1 to 12 points - according to the Eurovision scale.
After all couples have performed, and before the televoting starts, the totals given by the jury will be converted into Eurovision-style points, whereas the highest ranked couple will receive the jury's 12 points, then 10 points, then 8 points and then all the way down to 1 point.
Finally, the jury points will be multiplied by four, giving the jury vote the weight of 4 countries' votes in the total result. As soon as the jury votes have been given, it is up to viewers to cast their votes for their favorite couples and have their say on who they believe should win the second EDC.
The four adjudicators - who have been selected for this task by the IDSF - are:
Gladys Tay (SIN)
