Each country's Delegation (Delegations are formed by one Head of Delegation) gets to select an entry for each edition either by internal selection or national selection. Then the countries get to vote for each show (semi-final or final) to determine the qualifiers and the winner of the edition.
The first ever Melodivision Song Contest started on 8th of May 2016 when Spyros & Tasos decided to open an international music contest only for Instagram users. It was held in the capital city of the United Kingdom, London. Poland was the first ever country to win. The voting system has been taken from the Eurovision Song Contest. Each country awards 12 points to their favourite song, 10 for thr 2nd favourite and 8-1 for 3rd-10th respectively. The winner is traditionally set to be the host of the following edition. 19 nations were taking part in the first edition with 19 different songs. The biggest amount of countries that participated at once currently stands at 54.
During the 15th edition, the team revealed their story which correlated to the slogan "Telling Stories":
