Margaret was second in Polish National Final. Belowe are her and Szpak's live performances, which was better?

I personally like it. It works fine in Sweden and will surely make it exciting for longer

But it's annoying...watching for a whole long time to see vote after vote being published...and then in the end, BOOOM, all "public votes" at once messing up the entire standings. 

Either do it the old way, or announce all "professional" votes at once and then all "public" votes at once. Obviously they won't do it because one and a half hour of useless watching is still a lot of commercial income or something I guess.

Personally I don't find it useless, It's exciting and after all every vote counts the same.

Then they should announce the professional votes one after another and then the public votes one after another. If all votes count the same, it's just bullshit to announce 50% of the votes in a one hour show (or longer) and announce the second 50% all at once. That just doesn't make sense. 

What's wrong with having professional and public votes count the same, but putting them together per country and announcing them as one big vote?

I'm pretty sure that would be way too much time (even for me who find the voting exciting).

Personally I don't see the problem.

Yes, it would take too much time. Now they are just announcing a half one by one, and then "oh, yeah, let's do all the rest right now instead". 

It's like TV would broadcast the entire first 20km of a marathon and then compress the second half in a 30 seconds highlight video.

I strongly disagree about that comparison

For me, the only pro I see in this is that the winner won't be announced until the very end, because it is annoying to announce the winner before the last countries get a chance to vote, like in the last 3 years, but at the same time the only con is that it's turning into Melfest. I'm guessing either way they will preserve the 3 1/2 hours they have in the final, but last year the final was 4 hours long.

I think with the voting system, it should be the other way round. With the public votes announced and the judges combined score last. But that is my opinion.

In this video we have short preview for all published songs for 7th March, the order of songs was placed by random YouTube user :d

Note: Songs from Malta and Italy which are in this video still aren't officialy confirmed.
