How are the winners of Gendou Idol decided?
Gendou Idol contestants are scored by judges, and voted on my users.
At the end of a round, each contestant is given a ranking number.
Each round has a given number of top ranked contestants which move on to the next round.
The final round has one winner, the highest ranked contestant in the semi-finals.
Rank is calculated like this:
rank = (total-judge-score / 20) + (total-votes / maximum-votes)
In other words, a contestants rank is equal to the sum of judge score % plus user vote %.
This method of ranking was chosen to allow the judges and users to contribute equally to the ranking.
