The jury awarded the acts a total of 368 points.

The other 50 percent of the points came from the German audience and consisted of the votes during the show via phone call and text message and online voting. The same number of points, which were distributed by the international juries, were distributed to the eight songs in the percentage ratio of the German televoting.
