The results of the contest are not the result of an agreement and / or discussion between the jury members, but they represent a compromise decision based on the individual statements of each jury member regarding each contestant. Accurate results are achieved through an explanatory voting system.
These rules of refereeing do not provide for a discussion of the voting procedure or results, as well as a re-voting.
To achieve these goals, the following rules apply:
a) After the first audition, each member of the jury should randomly name a certain number of names of contestants whom he / she wants to see in the second round. Contestants who gained the majority of votes, go to the II audition.
b) Each member of the jury must additionally vote again, this time with the distribution of points from 0 to 11. This vote is taken into account only in case of a tie in the last positions of the list: in this case, the contestants taking the greater number of points pass to the II audition.
Voices at the stage a), given for the contestants who did not pass in the II audition, are disclosed when the results are announced.
In order to avoid the impact on further voting, all the votes in stages a) and b) given for the contestants who passed the next audition remain confidential for all, including the members of the jury. The results are announced one hour after the last performance in the first round. Members of the jury do not explain the reasons for their decision to the contestants who did not pass the next round.
a) A similar procedure is used, however, each member of the jury can name only 6 names at random. 6 people, who gained the majority of votes, move to the next audition.
b) Each member of the jury must additionally vote for a second time (see similar procedure in the first audition). This vote, again, is taken into account only in the event of a tie in the last positions of the list: the candidate(s) who receives the highest score passes to the next audition. Voices in stage a), given for competitors who did not pass the next audition, are disclosed after the announcement of the results. In order to avoid influence on the further voting, information on all the votes in stages a) and b) given for the contestants who passed the next round, remain confidential for all, including the members of the jury. The results are announced one hour after the last performance in the II audition. Then the members of the jury will explain the reasons for their decision to the contestants who did not pass the next audition.
Each jury member must distribute the places between the 6 finalists at his own discretion; the general minority of votes determines the position of the finalist.
The evaluation method is as follows: position 1 = 1 point, position 2 = 2 points, etc.
In case of equality of votes, the place occupied by the finalist is determined by the total number of points in stages b) obtained in the voting in the previous two auditions. To decide on the distribution of prizes in the finals, the judges must consider the performances at all rounds of the competition. The first prize / gold medal (equality of votes is not allowed) can be awarded to the leader of the finals only by a majority of votes with a margin of at least 8 (out of 11). To award special prizes, each of the judges should name one name; prizes are awarded by majority of votes. The decisions of the jury are final and not subject to revision.
