In Melodi Grand Prix 2018 there will be two rounds of voting: The first round where all 10 songs are performing, and the top-3 proceed to a super final, where another voting takes place. For the second time a special  fan jury will have 50% weight on the outcome.

This year DR has appointed a special fan jury consisting of 5 dedicated fans, who decide 50% of the outcome in Melodi Grand Prix. The fan jury will vote in both the preliminary round where three advance to the super final, and in the super final.
