|The Mocidade, champion of 2012, marched with 3,500 members, 25 wards and five floats|
Near the end of counting, when a single note 9.9 would be enough to give the title to the Mocidade Alegre, there was a invasion of a group of members of the samba schools (that weren't happy with the results). During the mess, a man could get the votes of the judges and tear them in front of everyone. There was no copy of the votes. Each of the ballot counting is done with banknote, with nine safety items and bar codes to prevent forgeries. Unfortunately, it was not enough.
