This year the votes will be decided by a combination of public and jury votes, each accounting for 50% of the total score. The three most popular songs will be performed again only this time the result will be determined purely by the public. This year DR has introduced a new app which can also be used to vote alongside SMS votes. The jury consists of choreographer Vicky Leander, singer Christina Chanée, songwriter John Gordon, fan Mette Thorning Svendsen and radio host Dennis Johannesson. Christina Chanée, along with Tomas N'evergreen, represented Denmark in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest finishing in 4th place. John Gordon wrote the winning song for Germany in 2010; Satellite, performed by Lena.
