Final Classification: The ranking of each selection will be published online by February 18, 2014. The final heat for each national contest will take into account the scores awarded by the technical jury (quality marks) and the online votes by the massive (number of votes). The votes of these two categories will be converted into percentages and added up. In order to ensure equal weight upon the final evaluation, the preferences expressed online will account for 20% of the final marks, and those of the technical jury will make up the remaining 80%.
