Another Eurovision complete, and another set of results to analyse and scrutinise. The EBU has revealed the full break-down of all the point distributions, giving us a chance to see who the jury/televote helped and hindered.

Iceland came out on top of the televote, but could only manage eight place with the juries, who instead put Czech Republic on top. However, once both constituencies were combined, Australia emerged victorious, having finished second with the public and third with the juries.
The biggest difference in televote/jury rankings was for San Marino. The public obviously got behind Serhat’s throwaway number, placing him fourth. The juries were not so keen, placing “Say Na Na Na” 15th.
Instead of San Marino, the juries would have sent Hungary to the final. If it was all down to the public, Poland would have made it to the Saturday night show ahead of Belarus. Ultimately, Belarus snuck in ahead of the Poles by just two points.
Darude’s past glories carried little currency with the public, who placed Finland last. The juries ranked him one place higher, putting Portugal at the bottom.
What do you think of the rankings? Are you surprised by how the public and juries voted? Who got robbed and who was overrated? Let us know in the comments below.
