The entire competition looks rigged from the beginning to have Ukraine win with a weak song. So we have to assume they actually did not win Eurovision because why you need to cheat if they had won?

Although I very much doubt it will happen, I hope Azerbaijan learns from this, that its no longer the same contest where an imported Swedish production slapped on a local artist cuts it. Actual Azeri music is really cool, experimental and interesting. I’d love to see them let their artists show a more authentic side to themselves and show case local art

And you know that only diaspora voted for Serbia? You do not know that, but you are assuming that is the case because of your personal reasons. The biggest Serbian diaspora is in Germany, yet Serbia received “only” 7 points from them (There are more than 500k Serbs in Germany). On the other hand, there are not that many (if any) Serbs in Finland and they awarded 8 points to Konstrakta. Anyway, “In Corpore Sano” is a memorable and quality entry that is as experimental as it could be. That is why the fact that the televote placed her 4th… Read more »

I voted for Konstrakta, both semi and final, really glad for Serbia’s great result but I’m pretty sure they only did so well mostly thanks to the meme factor, and not because so many people actually cared about or “understood” their entry. She did what she had to do tho, so no complaints there.

How the H did Azerbaijan qualify with juries? What did juries see in Azerbaijan that voted for it so much?
Juries ruined this year’s final with so many ballads qualifying and pushed to the second half. The crowds were bored and the ballads cancelled each other.

EBU should do something about it because it ruins the show. Yes ballads should be in the final if they are good enough but clearly there is something off when Australia Azerbaijan Switzerland qualify with almost zero televoting support

Why would they spend money bribing the jurors, when the song had zero chances of doing well. I assume bribing that many jurors cost a lot. I would get it if they did it to push for a winning song, but not just to get to the final. Just call it a year and invest those money on a winning song next year.

Indeed they don’t care, but with the money they have and the carelessness they spend it with they could at least hire personally a producer (such as Tainy or Ovy on the Drums, who have even worked with the likes of Shawn Mendes and Nicki Minaj) and a local loved artist and work on something unique and appealing.

the bribe money is nothing to what the Azeri regime can buy and pay for. They’ve done it before. They tried to bribe for Olympic Games too and I am sure they bribed for all the other events they have hosted in Baku. I don’t think they wanted to win bc they knew their song was weak, but they wanted to be high in the scoreboard by buying the jurors.

This confirms yet again that the running order does matter. Both Czechia and Armenia came top 3 in the televote in their semi-finals performing last and then ended up bottom 10 in the final where they performed in the first half. It’s been seen before, Israel 2017 is another example that jumps to mind.
In short, performing last in the semi-final boosts a song, peforming first in the final harms its chances.

Malta won the semi last year singing last, then was “randomly” put in 6th (contrarily to usual practice where semi winners who draw first half are placed in 11-13), hence the 40-something points from the televote.

Wow, that’s so disrespectful. Maybe Nadir is a person, with feelings? He has an amazing voice and one would be lying to say that juries don’t like that. So, maybe you could try voicing your opinion in a grown-up way instead of bullying an artist who’s done nothing to you? You can’t always get your way and being a toddler with a temper tantrum about it, doesn’t help. If you’re being objective, you cannot say he was rubbish or use some other derogatory term.

We have a relatively mainstream act that produces quality songs in that genre. They’d crush a national final here and I reckon we’d do well. I just want ANYTHING but rejects from the voice and the x factor. Brooke was the best we’ve had in years but the standard is going up for everyone else too, we need to do more to keep up.

I want the EBU to also investigate comments made by Swedish and Polish negative comments made commentators about the Irish song. Totally unacceptable.

Polish commentator: ” I think that we clearly see that Ireland’s Eurovision years are behind us.”

Swedish commentator “She’s trying to be Dua Lipa, but on an Irish budget”.

The commentators in most countries does this. Try to be funny on others behalf…british and swedish commentators has always been like that. If you want to investigate every joke, been said (sarcastic or not) and compare that to countries clearly cheating and having corrupt juries….well, Eurovision wouldnt exist then. EBU needs to ban countries that cheat, either those who buy votes or get bought. Thats the only way for them to (hopefully) stop it. To delete the votes isnt a punishment to them…but to their competitors.

The voting public can be influenced by the commentary. Negative opinions can hurt the songs chances. It’s just plain wrong for an opinion of someone to influence the voting

It’s okay for commentators to have an opinion, but I think they should be neutral if they want to comment the show

That’s what I mean, it should be neutral. . I wonder is that something the EBU review annually.

That’s exactly why we need to pull out of Eurovision fir a little while.
We are becoming the butt of Europe’s jokes and it’s embarrassing.
Though I agree that commentators should be neutral while commentating. That’s something the EBU need to start enforcing.

Do you think if anyone makes a positive comment they should be investigated as well? Cause positive comments also affect voting.

If you think that comments somehow are to blame for Irish failure and not the average teen girl pop song you sent then you clearly have lost the plot as to how to succeed in ESC

I’m not saying that, I can clearly see the scores from the semi final. Ireland came 15th. All I’m saying they if a commentator can call a song crap on live tv it’s an issue for the contest

I have the same issue with the Dutch commentators. They try to push their opinions onto the public. They can be quite mean. I don’t think that is their job.

I am so proud of Andrea and North Macedonia. She was so close to qualify – even tho she was dead last in the odds.

There should be a rule that if you get 0 either from jury or public u cannot qualify.

am happy with 16th semi place for Emma <3 also 20 televotes is pretty decent when i had expected a 0 televote

positively surprised when i expected a last place/last place overall result

also 1,7 million spotify streams already now for her new EP I Am Emma and she even charted in Singapore apparently

It’s the first time the jury would push Poland to the final! That is a nice change of pace!

Still shocked they placed songs like Belgium, Azerbaijan, Switzerland or Australia higher in the final. I expected more than 46 points… 🙁

I am mad at the running order. Czech Republic had bigger potential but the starting position made them forgotten. You can see in the semiresult that they had greater potential. I think a top 15 result was at least what was possible.

it’s the same thing as israel 2017. they finished 3rd in the semi televote after closing, and they got 5 points in the final’s televote as they opened it.

In semi final vote only countries from that Semi, in final every countries from both semi, because that result Is sometimes Is so different for some country .
For me is bigger problem
is some jury member voting. Example same jury member in semi put Lithuania on 5 tj place, Greece on 10 th place. In final, put Greece on 4 th place, Lithuania on 16 th place. How change drastic opinion in 2 or 4 days between semi and final. Singer can sing better in semi or final, but drastic changes Is weird.

Well, it really would have been nice to receive some more televoting points than just 5 from ONE country..thanks North Macedonia.

Czech Republic is in my top 10, I feel sorry for them too, but somebody has to go first. Traditionally song number 1 does better than number 2, but Romania ranks higher than Czech Republic this year, so there is no excuse. Would Czech Republic have done better if they had performed the second?

i’m really convinced that the 2009 formula was the best: semi-finals 100% televote, final 50-50.

Agree, if they had gone with 100% televote in semis this year, that would have knocked out Switzerland and Azerbaijan and kept the other 9 songs in each semi.

absolutely pathetic how a country that got ZERO points from the public was allowed to qualify stealing a spot from something people voted for. they really need to reconsider the jury formula: no music professional in their right mind would give first place to a man belting out nonsense for three minutes.

The Azerbaijan result makes me think there was at least some rigging going on. I mean, 0 points from the public?! Also, these results PROVE that you don’t wanna test Andrea’s limits!!

Ireland DESERVED to qualify. Good vocals, good performance, good staging. Ireland are actually tried for once this year and I come from an Irish family so I know how frustrating it is to not qualify almost every year (with a few exceptions). Why is Cyprus ranked higher? Andromache had TERRIBLE vocals and many people complained that the performance was boring and lost their attention after about a minute.
