The European Broadcasting Union has revealed the final results of the 2009 Eurovision jury voting. In the chart below, you can see who the jury helped (France’s Patricia Kaas, Germany’s Oscar Loya & Dita von Teese and Malta’s Chiara Siracusa) and who the jury hurt (Azerbaijan’s Arash & AySel, Greece’s Sakis Rouvas and Ukraine’s Svetlana Loboda).

Wiwi has listed countries in the order that the jury placed them. You can then compare the jury result with the combined result (tele-voting + jury voting) to get a sense of the jury’s impact. A positive difference shows that the jury gave entries a boost (Denmark and Israel), while a negative difference shows that the jury screwed them over (Albania and Russia).
