One can clearly see the juries were told to vote for sophisticated songs, good voice, quality music. Probably they were given the official EBU criteria for juries and this looks exactly like Eurovision juries would vote too if they stuck to these rules and not simply going by their own tastes or neighbor countries. So it’s understandable why juries chose these kinds of songs. They‘re new to the party and probably don’t know how to vote. Besides, all songs they chose were definitely one of the better songs.
