Voting and results
After the song presentation was done, DR posted a poll regarding the voting system of the edition. There were three options:
- Jury & "RotW"-jury where participants of NVSC 9 vote as individual juries and the non-participants' votes are combined as the "Rest of the World". The voting is the Northvision–style for all the voters.
- Jury & Televoting where broadcasters apply to vote and they are randomly drawn to vote either as individual juries or as part of the televoting. The individual juries vote with the Northvision–style. The televoting countries have a certain number of points to the 10 songs.
- Jury & Televoting where broadcasters apply to vote as individual juries. Only some countries are allowed to apply for a jury place while the others who don't apply, vote as televoting. The individual juries vote with the Northvision–style. The televoting countries have a certain number of points to the 10 songs.
The third option was the most voted by the public and was selected by the broadcaster. After the system was selected, the final date was delayed due to the jury applications.
