There will be several cool new things at this year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest and now it's time to reveal one of them - there will be not only 12 countries giving points but 13!
Extra 'country' to give points in 2012
If last year it was Australia who gave 12 points to all participants then this year it'll be a jury made up of kids between the age 10 and 15 with experience in music.
So, we'll see a kids jury with 12 members - one from each of the participating countries. That jury will give points as one country - all their grades will be summarised and like this, we'll get their top ten. That'll be awarded points from 1-8, 10 and of course, the famous 12 points!
Their points will be revealed during the interval acts by a surprise guest - and we promise, it'll be fun!
