In a change to the rules, professional couples were no longer eligible to enter the contest. At least one dancer from each couple had to be a local celebrity, not professionally trained to dance.[2] A further change was that each couple only performed once. In 2007 each couple performed a ballroom or Latin routine followed by a freestyle dance incorporating national flavour; in the 2008 contest, couples only performed the latter.[2] In 2008 a panel of experts was introduced with an approximate weight of 23% of the total outcome and the rest 77% determined through televoting. The highest possible points from the jury were 48 while the televoting cast a maximum of 156 points.[2] Contents 1 Participants 2 Participating countries 3 Scoreboard 3.1 12 points 3.2 Results without the jury 4 Controversy 5 See also 6 References 7 External links // Participants According to the 2007 rules Section 2.2[4] on the official website, all entrants in the Eurovision Dance Contest 2007 agreed to take part in 2008 when signing up for the first contest. However, Switzerland and Germany announced their withdrawals from 2008 edition of the contest due to low ratings and poor results in 2007.[2] The Spanish broadcaster announced its withdrawal on 20 August, just days before the contest took place. In July they held a national selection show Quiero Bailar and named singer Rosa López and dancer Nieto as their representatives in the contest. According to the draw they were supposed to be 15th couple to perform.[5] As the number of dances was reduced, with each couple performing once instead of twice, new countries were allowed to enter the competition, but the only new country to enter the contest was Azerbaijan.[2] Among the countries that broadcast the event without sending representatives were: Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, FYR Macedonia, Iceland, Israel, Malta and Spain.[2] Australia also broadcast the contest on 6 May 2009, as a lead up to the Eurovision Song Contest 2009, on SBS.[6] This was the first time Australia has ever broadcast the Eurovision Dance Contest, after failing to broadcast the Eurovision Dance Contest 2007, and was aired without any commentary.

According to the regulations of the contest,[21] professional couples were not allowed to take part in the competition. The EBU specified that the couple had to be composed of one professional (defined as a dancer who earns his or her living through dance and dance-related activities), and one non-professional known in a field other than dance. The non-professional was not required to be a celebrity, as long as he or she was known in his field, and it was also not a requirement that the non-professional had no dance experience. Since the representatives for Azerbaijan and Greece both consisted of two professional dancers, however, it is not clear why their entries were considered valid.
