Remember the drama over Belarus and its Eurovision jury being dismissed? Well that incident continues to impact Eurovision 2019.

This afternoon the EBU was forced to issue a statement after learning that “human error” led it to use the incorrect aggregated result. This did not impact televoting, nor did it impact the overall winner and Top 4 songs. However, after that things do get a bit trickier.

Among other things, North Macedonia‘s Tamara Todevska won the jury vote over Sweden‘s John Lundvik. But the Swede had a bit of good news of his own. Under the revised results, he passed Norway to take fifth place overall.

Here is their statement in full.

“The Belarusian jury was dismissed following the reveal of their votes from the first Semi-Final which is contrary to the rules of the Eurovision Song Contest. In order to comply with the Contest’s voting regulations, the EBU worked with its voting partner digame to create a substitute aggregated result (calculated based on the results of other countries with similar voting records), which was approved by voting monitor Ernst & Young, to determine the Belarusian jury votes for the Grand Final.”

“The EBU can confirm, following standard review practices, we have discovered that due to a human error an incorrect aggregated result was used. This had no impact on the calculation of points derived from televoting across the 41 participating countries and the overall winner and Top 4 songs of the Contest remain unchanged.”

“To respect both the artists and EBU Members which took part, we wish to correct the final results in accordance with the rules. The correct jury points have now been added to the scoreboard and the revised totals for each participating broadcaster, and their country, have been published on eurovision.tv.”

“The EBU and its partners digame and Ernst & Young deeply regret that this error was not identified earlier and will review the processes and controls in place to prevent this from happening again.”

Long story short, Belarus’ jury points were incorrect, meaning that ten countries received points that they shouldn’t have, while ten others did not receive points that they should have. Rather than earning 12 points Israel actually earned zero. Rather than earning zero points, Malta, actually earned 12. You can see the changes below. It also means that North Macedonia won the jury vote.

This impacts rank ordinals as well. Norway drops to sixth position, while Sweden climbs to fifth. North Macedonia moves from eight position to seventh position. San Marino moves from 20th to 19th. Cyprus climbs two spots to 13th and more…

Anyone who noticed Jon Ola Sand was not as clear this year as he use too. Ordinarily he says stuff like “I confirm that everything has gone according to procedures…” or likewise. I guess they wanted to change the appeal of what he says. But it’s ironically not everything was done alright the very same year.

Next time, get your calculators out and follow the scores as they are announced. It is as simple as this: (1) Start with 58 points (12+10+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1). Multiply that by twice the number of countries in the contest. There were 4,756 points available (2,378 jury + 2,378 televote). With the jury roll-call done, you have only the televote scores to be revealed. (2) Listen for the scores and subtract as they go along. In the original announcement, it was all over when the Dutch got their televote score (261), because there were 151 points remaining; not enough for either N. Macedonia… Read more »

Perfectly right CookyMonzta, which is why I don’t like this type of vote presentation. Okay, we have to be a little obsessive to do all those subtractions (although some of us can do them in our head), but it should not be possible to work out what will happen. The contest shouldn’t pretend that countries might still win when we go past the point of arthitmetical possibility. That is patronising and fake. One day we’ll have a Tamara or John who will already know the results by the time the cameras are trained on him, regardless of what the presenters… Read more »

So, with Israel getting no points from the jury and Germany getting none from the public, it is fair (although dire) to say that it IS possible for a contender to come to the contest with a song and performance that no one agrees with, and end up getting zeroes across the board (jury AND televote), which has never happened. With the scores recalculated, what would the scorecard look like now, if the procedure from 2009 to 2015 were used? Before the recalculation, the Netherlands had 299 and the U.K. zero. With 6 points added to its score (now 498),… Read more »

So My question is:How can the Jury from Montenegro give 12 points to Greece in the semi(places 1,2,1,6,2 in each juror) and ZERO in the final with the same jurors putting them in places 25,7,25,26,25?? IT JUST SHOWS HOW FAKE THE JURIES ARE..

Bella

To be fair, most songs from SF1 did very badly: in the final top 10 songs, only 2 come from SF1 (Australia and Iceland). The rest were all SF2 and Italy.

So it’s entirely possible that a song does well in SF1 but drops out of the top 10 once all the songs are factored in.

North Macedonia ending high up was political: it was to reward Macedonia for changing its name to North Macedonia to remove Greek’s objection and therefore help draw it into NATO. The people of Macedonia boycotted the vote: the majority did not want the name change and the Prespa agreement and all it entailed. Also the juries are the most corrupt: 5 people having 50% of the vote is too much power/sway in the hands of too few. It is 10% of the vote per each member. Meanwhile the 10s or hundreds of thousands of individuals get closer to only 0.001%… Read more »

My country’s name, Republic of Macedonia, is not changed, although there was an attempt to do so. However, I agree with the rest of your comment, not that Tamara wasn’t the best Icelandic vocalist and performer ever.
As for Macedonia, we had for example Kaliopi, an extraordinary vocalist, as everybody confirms, but she finished only thirteenth or fourteenth, I’m not sure, because at that time there wasn’t a criminal attempt to change our Constitutional name. In 2012 people respected our Constitutional name, although Eurovision didn’t.

You have tried to join UN and EU a few times using the name ‘Macedonia’ and you were rejected. You cannot use a name officially when it is already a region in another country. I have followed this topic since last year and I do get what you mean by ‘the name hasn’t really changed’. It was in the news in various countries how the referendum happened etc. Since the people in both countries don’t want the deal, it is doomed to fail from the beginning.

I’ll give you a mulligan on only one point: Maybe they need to have 10 jurors for every country.

I would make one additional proposal in this matter: Drop the high and the low, and take the middle 8 placings; or better yet, 6 if you drop 2 of the highest and 2 of the lowest placings.

Sorry but, except for Greece and North Macedonia, who cares about the name change? Also, then all the Russian jurors who voted for North Macedonia are supporting its accession to NATO? And how is a song relevant for a military alliance like NATO?

Jojo… Well most of my swedish friends that listen to the songs first time on the grand final wrote all good things on fb about North Macedonia. I dout that most knew about the change of the name. They liked tha song and so do I. I did’t vote for it because Arcade was ny nr 1 and Italy my nr two.. The song deserve high points from the jury in my opinion aswell as Sweden in my opinion – but I can see why North Macedonia and Sweden wasn’t the favourite among the public.

I don’t understand how it is possible for the Greeks to know more about our name, referendum, parliament, history, than ourselves, that is, than the Macedonians themselves. The fact that not even one of us is fascinated with the amazing Icelandic female vocalist who sang for the country north of Macedonia, shows that injustice was done to Macedonia bigger than the missing Icelandic lady’s spotlight.

What if Sweden win the jury vote in 2020? It’s not a big if, they’re bound to have a quality entry. But after Benjamin and John, we all know what’s likely to happen at the end of the televote reveal.

Jonas
Guest
Jonas

This is why the jury vote is still important. The televoting public seem to have a bias against Sweden – diehard fans who don’t want to see Sweden host again so don’t vote for them – but quality entries should be rewarded.

pinkisnotacolour
Guest
pinkisnotacolour

I don’t think Sweden “only” came 9th in the televote because fans didn’t vote so they wouldn’t win. A lot of them just preferred other songs. And sometimes they’ve done better with the televote, like in 2010 when the juries cost them their place in the final.

Jonas
Guest
Jonas

Sure, I’m just saying that a large portion of the televoters are not your average viewer, they are diehard fanatics – if you read some of the comments about Sweden here, it seems that they are not in a hurry for Sweden to win again. I’m just speculating that this may a be one of the causes of their “low” televote score over the last couple of years.

pinkisnotacolour
Guest
pinkisnotacolour

The people on here are the minority. And I admit to feeling annoyed at first when the juries rated Sweden in the top again, though this year’s song was definitely heaps better than last year’s. So, sorry about that. Maybe if the jury and televote scores weren’t presented separately, it wouldn’t be such an issue. I still don’t think it affects how people vote or if it does, the effect is negligible.

Jonas
Guest
Jonas

You may be right, like I said, it’s just a theory. The discrepancy between jury and televote two years in a row is a little bizarre, though…

Polegend Godgarina
Guest

you’re joking, right ? the general public couldn’t care less bout how ‘overrated’ sweden can be, they have no idea. diehard eurovision fans are like 0.1% of the total viewers in the final and have little impact on the outcome. maybe sweden’s songs haven’t been good enough to win lately ? they still placed top 10 in the televoting seven out of nine years this decade.

Jonas
Guest
Jonas

Nah, I’m not joking. How many viewers do you think actually vote? Most casual viewers do not vote at all. The contest in unusual in that you can not even vote for the act you actually want to win – your own country. Even if regular viewers do vote, they vote once or maybe twice. They don’t spam the lines with 20 votes like the diehards.

JoJo
Guest
JoJo

The jury vote is the most corrupt and political. Having only 5 members get 50% of the say/vote is not right. Too much power in the hands of so few leads to corruption.
Jury vote should go down to 25 or 20% of they need to more than double the number of jury members.
When they go opposite of the people’s vote they are not properly representing the country.

Jonas

They’re not supposed to represent the viewers at home – that’s what the televote is for. They’re there to reward quality based on their own opinions.

In my opinion, ‘Too Late For Late’ wasn’t a quality entry. It should have stayed in the semifinal. Romania, Austria, Croatia & Lithuania all had better songs. It’s not a fact that Sweden brings quality entries every year. It’s not granted Sweden will bring a quality entry next year.

I felt this should be stated.

CookyMonzta
Guest
CookyMonzta

In other words, if they reveal the televote scores the same way, and Sweden is #1 after the jury roll-call, you can pretty much call it a wrap for whoever leads in total points once the next-to-last country gets its televote score; yes?

I was thinking the same thing, after Tamara got her televote score, leaving only John to get his. I knew he’d get more than Benjamin Ingrosso (21) the year before, but I didn’t think he’d get 254 (before the scores were recalculated) to beat Duncan by 1.

But Sweden can afford to host the contest and is willing to host it more often than other well-off countries. So that’s why Sweden needs to be around the TOP every year in case… Read more »

I think this deserves an official apology to North Macedonia for missing the spotlight as the jury winner! True, Norway also missed the spotlight of being recognized as televoting winner, but at least that was “according to the rules” – and in case of North Macedonia a completely wrong country was recognized as jury winner and got the spotlight. In the next year’s edition this should be corrected somehow – the injustice done towards North Macedonia should be at least mentioned.

There was a criminal attempt to change the Constitution of the Republic of Macedonia by means of bribery, coercion, blackmail, even by releasing from prison MPs on the day of voting in order to vote for constitutional changes. All that is neatly recorded and soon when we remove from power the junta that has currently been ruling Macedonia, we will declare void all the criminal agreements.

Marco, Arcade is a beautiful song and nobody says it didn’t deserve, but I think that if Mahmood had done a complete performance in a semi final, things would, maybe, have gone in a different way.
And also you can’t deny the blogs, press and the houses of bets showed Arcade as the almost announced winner, when instead the distance with Italy was finally very close… all these stuffs were very annoying.
Both Arcade and Soldi are wonderful songs with completely different style, so for a lot of us , who prefer Soldi, Mahmood is our winner.

Minerva

Calling a song the favorite would make people believe that it is indeed. It gets repeated so many times and those who are undecided would probably end up voting for it. That’s why I never care for betting odds and concentrate on the song I do like.

Belarus votes were based on a measure of juries from vontries that usually votes similar to them. This was because their real juries was speaking in public about the songs they like before their votes should have been revealed. When EBU calculated their jury points they did so from the wrong end.. The least favorite, Israel, got 12 points etc. This made belarus jury vote for all contries in the right half. But that was all wrong. So the bottom countries get really affected by this, because they have low scones in total and were close to one other in… Read more »

Carola won accordingly with the rules. Both Sweden and France had the same amount of points and the same number of twelves, but Sweden had the most ten points.
So sweden won all accordingly with the rules. The rule system was like this because they didn’t want to repeat what happened in 1969 with four winners. Using the old rules Sweden and France would have shared the victory.

Sigh….. nostalgic of the days that ESC was just a Western European event! Bloc or diaspora voting simply didn’t exist back then. Songs won, not countries!
The decision to let Eastern European countries join ESC around the turn of the millennium has made everything so unnecessarily political. The result is that we get caught up in endless and pointless discussions like these every single year.

Andy Troy

The reason why ESC used to be only one half of Europe is because the other half was behind the Iron curtain, suffering under communism. That’s nothing to be nostalgic about. And block voting did exist – the Nordic countries voted for each other to a greater extent then than they do now, and, Cyprus and Greece exchanged 12 points just like they do now.

Greece has been a NATO member since 1952 and an EU (former EEC) member since 1981 (that’s earlier than Spain, Portugal or Sweden). Albeit its geographical position, it has a political history of decades-long democratic governance (and no communist past), a long tradition of parliamentarism and of constitutionally protected civil liberties and human rights: all the above classify it socio-politically in the western world. Geographically it can be said that it belongs to Southern or South-eastern Europe. The term “balkan” is mostly reserved for its northern regions.

Yes, western is a constructed word used to describe “developed” contries. The origin was do distinguish this group of contries from two other groups, the communist states and the “third world”. The world is not like this at all today. Most contries are not in extreme poverty but in average wealth. Even in Europe the terms use is to speak of good and bad. Being part of “western” Europe is associated with a developed country, good economy, good values, whatever you put into that. The terms are all putting yourself in the good perspective and the others are lesser valued.… Read more »

One hidden victim of this “human error” is Michela Pace, was was denied her single “12 points” announcement. That on top of being kept until last before she knew she made the final, and also being put on screen to react to her moderate televote score. The EBU, you owe her one.

Sweden is always saved by the juries and once again the public were much more apathetic towards it. The juries were far too harsh on Norway. It was an upbeat song with a touch of ethnic cheese. I much preferred this to Swedens entry which seemed to be too bland and soulless. Just a further point how come this song fared so much better than the UK entry yet it was written by the same person and wasn’t that much better in quality.

Funny how you say Mello was poor THIS year, when many people (me included) says this year was an improvement from last year. I agree on Joik deserving it’s place in music. But I don’t agree on the quality of Norway’s song. Sweden was never my top entry, perhaps top ten or something. But Norway’s song did not speak to me. But obviously it spoke to most of the televotes.

Joshua

I didn’t watch last year’s Mello, so I don’t know whether this year was better or not. But I agree about Norway. Personally it wasn’t the best song of the night, but that’s only my opinion.

The name has now changed erga omnes. There is no country anywhere in the world called ‘Macedonia’. FYROM tried to join the EU and the UN using the name ‘Macedonia’ and they were rejected a few times.

And while Mahmood was in Italy doing his tour the majority of the blogs, press and the betting houses were excessively “promoting” Arcade and without that I’m sure Italy would have won; just 26 points of difference while the odds had put for Arcade the 50% of probability of winning the contest!

No, nor were they so superb at ESC, before and after (particularly after) they had much better songs than Waterloo. Loreen is the only Swedish winner which had a great song and performed it superbly.

I think your “suspicious” point is the main one. It’s very odd that an error with an EBU-generated ranking was not spotted before it was too late.
