Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced that the traditional UK election system is to be scrapped and replaced by an X Factor-style phone vote.
Mr Clegg, who is responsible for constitutional reform, said the success of this year's televised debates showed that whoever looked the best on camera clearly stood the best chance.
In addition to the change of voting procedure, party leaders will also take part in a live sing-off before the vote opens, with Dermot O'Leary set to compare.
Mr Clegg said: "The British public have clearly shown that they are either too bone-idol or just plain stupid to get off their fat arses and go and vote.
"The new phone vote system will mean the smelly proles don't have to leave their stinking holes to elect a government."
He added: "We'll also be letting the electorate vote by text as this seems to be the only way some people can communicate these days."
Bookies have already started taking bets on what song the leaders will sing before the polls open.
David Cameron is tipped to sing 'Trouble' by Coldplay, with Mr Clegg expected to perform Belle and Sebastian's 'It could have been a brilliant career'.
Leader of the Labour Party, Ed Milliband, is thought to be considering 'He ain't heavy, he's my brother'.
