As we know, the modern Eurovision results are determined by a mixture of public and jury vote. But what if it was only the music industry professionals that made the decision? Would the winner be different? Turns out, sometimes!
Some months back, we asked y’all to vote for your favourite jury winner of the 2010s. And, after counting 7,454 votes, the results are in! Our readers have chosen Germany’s Eurovision 2010 singer Lena.
Germany’s Lena is your favourite Eurovision jury winner of the 2010s
Lena won both the public and the jury vote in 2010 scoring 246 points, a huge 76 points ahead of Turkey’s maNga with “We Could Be The Same”. However, even though the “Satellite” singer smashed the public vote winning by 66 points, Lena scraped the top of the jury vote by a teeny two points, taking home 187 points. The jury’s silver medal went to Belgium’s Tom Dice with his ballad “Me and My Guitar”.
Here, Lena dominated the poll. She picked up an impressive 38.44% of all votes cast. That’s 2,865 votes altogether.
In second place, we have the perennial ESC 250 topper Loreen with “Euphoria”.
If there was one contest that the result would never be in doubt, it was Eurovision 2012. Sweden’s Loreen completely stormed both the public and the jury vote. Loreen took 343 televote points, 11 ahead of the Russian Grandmas — Buranovskiye Babushki. Though the real eye-opening score was from the juries. Loreen scored 296 jury points, a monstrous 123 points more than the jury’s second choice — Serbia’s Željko Joksimović and his Balkan ballad “Nije Ljubav Stvar”. A clear winner.
This time around, Loreen gathered up 928 votes or 12.45% of all votes cast.
The final place on the podium goes to Australia’s 2016 entrant Dami Im with “Sound of Silence”.
Eurovision 2016 was the first time ever that the winner topped neither the public vote nor the jury table. Australia’s Dami Im won the jury vote in a landslide with 320 points, while overall winner Jamala of Ukraine had only 211 points. But Dami could only muster fourth place with the public. Russia’s Sergey Lazarev won the televote, but could only manage fifth place with the juries — finishing behind Australia, Ukraine, France and Malta.
Dami garnered 876 votes or 11.75% of all votes cast.
