I have a fieldset in my HTML which basically represents 5 star rating system like following:

<fieldset class="rating" id="ratingSystem">
    <input type="radio" id="star5" name="rating" value="5" /><label class="full" for="star5" title="Awesome - 5 stars"></label>
    <input type="radio" id="star4" name="rating" value="4" /><label class="full" for="star4" title="Pretty good - 4 stars"></label>
    <input type="radio" id="star3" name="rating" value="3" /><label class="full" for="star3" title="Meh - 3 stars"></label>
    <input type="radio" id="star2" name="rating" value="2" /><label class="full" for="star2" title="Kinda bad - 2 stars"></label>
    <input type="radio" id="star1" name="rating" value="1" /><label class="full" for="star1" title="Sucks big time - 1 star"></label>

And I've defined an onclick event which defines when user clicks on some of the star ratings (radio buttons) then I'd simply for testing purposes display the clicked value, but I always get double values displayed instead of the displayed one...

For instance if I clicked on 5 I get displayed in console:


Second time I click on 4 I get values:


The code I use for it is:

$('#ratingSystem').click(function () {

What am I doing wrong here?

Edit, these are the CSS classes that I use to turn the radio buttons into stars so that it looks like star rating system:

fieldset, label { margin: 0; padding: 0; }
body{ margin: 20px; }
h1 { font-size: 1.5em; margin: 10px; }

/****** Style Star Rating Widget *****/

.rating { 
  border: none;
  float: left;

.rating > input { display: none; } 
.rating > label:before { 
  margin: 5px;
  font-size: 1.25em;
  font-family: FontAwesome;
  display: inline-block;
  content: "\f005";

.rating > .half:before { 
  content: "\f089";
  position: absolute;

.rating > label { 
  color: #ddd; 
 float: right; 

/***** CSS Magic to Highlight Stars on Hover *****/

.rating > input:checked ~ label, /* show gold star when clicked */
.rating:not(:checked) > label:hover, /* hover current star */
.rating:not(:checked) > label:hover ~ label { color: #FFD700;  } /* hover previous stars in list */

.rating > input:checked + label:hover, /* hover current star when changing rating */
.rating > input:checked ~ label:hover,
.rating > label:hover ~ input:checked ~ label, /* lighten current selection */
.rating > input:checked ~ label:hover ~ label { color: #FFED85;  } 

Could any of these classes be the source of the issue?
