Earlier this afternoon junioreurovision.tv released the combined jury-televote split for Junior Eurovision 2015. It shows that Bulgaria’s Krisia Todorova won the public vote, but failed to take home the win because of the juries. The results indicate just how important winning over the juries can be. This year the jury hurt Ukraine’s Sympho-Nick the most, helped Malta’s Federica Falzon the most, and appear to have cost Bulgaria its first victory at ESC or JESC.

Combined Voting Results: Junior Eurovision 2014

We’ve put together the following table which demonstrates who the jury hurt the most and helped the most. A positive number shows that the jury gave the act a boost, while a negative number shows that the jury hurt the act’s overall rating. Below this we’ve listed some of our thoughts.

Junior Eurovision 2014 jesc televote jury vote split

  • Malta’s Federica Falzon benefited the most from the jury, who scored her 49 points higher than the public. Music professionals were likely better able to appreciate an operatic voice than kids voting at home. She may also have benefited from the home-field advantage: Malta did a great job hosting and perhaps the jurors wanted to acknowledged that.
  • The jury loved Italy’s Vincenzo Cantiello. They scored him 43 points higher than the public. This was enough to secure him the win. He finished 43 points behind Bulgaria’s Krisia Todorova in the public vote, but 57 points ahead of her with the juries.
  • Sweden’s Julia Kedhammar was the third biggest benefactor from the juries. Despite only getting three points from the public, she earned 39 from the juries, which bumped her up by 36 points.
  • Serbia, Montenegro, Belarus, Georgia and Croatia also benefited from the presence of a jury.
  • San Marino’s Peppermints were the only act to be scored the same by both the jury and televoting public.
  • Armenia’s Betty did very well with the juries — she came second. But they still marked her 10 points lower than the televoting public.
  • Russia, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Bulgaria also suffered at the hands of the jury.
  • Ukraine’s Sympho-Nick suffered the most. They came an impressive joint-third in the televote with 100 points. Yet the juries put them way down in 12th with just 24 points. That’s a markdown of 76.

Italy better host JESC next year! If they decline, I want Malta to host it again.

On the other hand, I think Italy is a deserving winner, though I find the song forgettable. Vincenzo sang really well, and both televote and jury recognized that to around the same extent.

Krisia put on a really good performance at jury rehearsal, so I’m personally quite surprised at this result. She (and her group’s incredible song) deserved a better score from the jury.

On the other hand, I’m also delightfully surprised that she finished so far ahead in the televote, especially given that her cold had an effect on her voice. Song composition really does matter, and I think Europe saw that. Televoters should’ve given Malta more points, though. Federica’s vocals were absolutely pristine.

Hi wiwi

News about Spain:

Ruth Lorenzo is nominated for Best Movie Soundtracks in the Goya Awards.

GOYA = Spain’s main national annual film awards, equivalent of the American Academy Awards in Spain.

The song is “Hechicero” (sorcerer, wizard)

Bulgaria and Slovenia should’ve been, for me, the top in the juries’ votes. Ukraine was also criminally underrated in the juries and Italy criminally overrated (as always in the juries)

*ESC 2011 in Germany, that would be.

So, basically, the juries on JESC 2014 made Italy win the whole thing on their debut, just like it was supposed to be done in 2011 but Azerbaijan broke (or glued) some other thingies in the EBU’s math. Conspiracy or not, I still believe that Italy is the most undeserving winner of the entire history of JESC.
