The winner and Norwegian representative in Kiev was chosen over two voting rounds of public televoting and as a new feature, an international jury panel. 10 different countries awarded from 1-8, 10 and 12 points to their favorite songs. The juries had a total of 580 points to give out and also 580 points were awarded by the Norwegian public, thus the 4 songs with the most points proceeded to the Gold-final. 100% regional televoting eventually decided the winner.
