The IDSF Jury Panel 11/08/2008

Avatar Another important change to Eurovision Dance Contest format is the addition of an expert jury panel in the evaluation of the performances. While the winners in 2007 were selected exclusively by televoting viewers in the participating countries - and by a stand-by jury in Greece, where the programme was not aired live due to forest fires ravaging part of the country - a panel of four IDSF Adjudicators will also award points on the traditional Eurovision scale from 1 to "douze" (12) points this time around.

The IDSF Adudicators are all from non-participating countries: France, Germany, Singapore and Slovenia. They will have the voting weight of four countries. More on the panel soon!
