We already know former Westlife member Nicky Byrne is set to represent Ireland in this years Eurovision but its the news of a change in the voting that has lovers of the music show excited today. 

The Eurovision over the years has received many complaints due to the voting system with neighbouring countries voting for one another, leaving many people question whether it was a music competition at all.

This year things will be different as they are shaking up its voting format in a bid to keep viewers watching the yearly extravaganza until the very end.

For the first time this year, the expert juries and televoters from each country will each award a separate set of points from one to eight, 10 and 12.

The top 10 countries in both the jury and audience vote will receive points, with the respective scores being announced in two separate parts of the show.

The change means the winner will now only be known in the final minutes of the contest.

Will this change up help bring back the viewers? Who knows but its worth a try!
