    Entering the new decade;

    A general discussion thread for this contest going into the new decade.

    What do you think should change in Eurovision for the new decade? Which countries need to do a different approach in this contest in order to achieve better results, or will we see a contest where the "usual" countries do well like Sweden, Russia, Australia, Italy... - perhaps someone else will see 2020 as a fresh new start to invest more in their entries?

    Juries have been a topic pretty much every year. Is it time to expand the juries to perhaps a number of ten where you're able to "cover" more in the music industry; genres of music, styles etc...?

    Personally, I'm a big fan of the 50/50 system, but I would definitely like to see the juries expanded with members covering the music industry to a certain degree

    And may the UK change direction and do well again...
    I mean they could put @Sean in charge and we could perhaps see some really cool and daring entries from the UK

    I would personally scrap thee juries because their original purpose was to prevent block voting. As we all can see, they are just as biased, if not more, than the televoters.

    3 Possibilities to improve Voting.

    a) 100 % TV with a new TV-System which awards the Top13-15 instead only the Top10 to reduce the Diaspora- and Blockeffect and make the Results more fair.
    b) 50/50 with bigger Juries (9 f.e.) and Explaination of the Juries of their Votes.
    c) The Same Voting, but with 66/33 for the Public.

    I think juries are very important for the competition to work out because the 2000s were a big travesty tbh.

    More members could be a good idea, I'd like to try that out. Also EBU has to address obvious fake voting like what Armenia + Azerbaijan do every year.

    Too many things to be fixed, but no one to fix any.

    I think the EBU could invest more in the screening of the juries. We need really independent juries, not biased ones. Giving an (public) explanation for their votes will be a great addition as well (although the harm is already done).

    Re: Entering the new decade;

    100% televoting is a really bad idea imo. They should indeed make the juries bigger though - thinking about 10 people at least. And call me crazy but I would actually like to see them adding 2 or 3 regular Eurovision fans (us basically) to the juries. Let`s be real, we are way better at judging songs and performances than most of the jurors actually.
