They screwed themselves with aggressive advertising and bad staging. Plus, many of the high points come from countries where you‘d expect it from (Sweden, Australia...)... they wanted to push it to the top but failed. And probably made poor Destiny feeling she could win this, I was so sorry for her. After pandering her so much came the hard fall.Sooo did Malta get screwed by the EBU when it comes to the running order after all? She actually did well in the Semi televoting.
Can please someone explain to me how Romania finished with that messy staging and HORRIBLE live vocals before Slovenia, Croatia and North Macedonia?
How is it possible that N. Macedonia was dead last in the jury voting? Aren't they supposed to appreaciate the vocals? Seriously guys, these juries suck big time.
And one more thing - Slovenia did not give one single point to Israel. Israel is very unpopular in Slovenia cuz of Palestine.
I think some discepancies can be understood. I would assume that a jury try to look beyond the buzz and cheap showmanship, and instead look more at the artistic quality. What impresses a professional might be different from what public prefers. It didn't surprise me that Switzerland and France did well with the jury, but Finland did not. However, if that were the case the juries would probably agree more.I feel a little sad about the discrepancy of jury votes and televote.
Juries still haven’t prevented neighbour voting like they should - instead a lot of neighbour voting themselves.
They should not have the same power as the televote!
Also, juries are easier to manipulate than televote.
Shout out to the juries who still gave 10 or 12 points to their opponent's country!
It's very fishy, people don't like this type of music here.I cant believe Czech televoters gave 12 points to Moldova. This is manipulated af.
I guess part of the contributions to Moldova come from diaspora Romanians. And many Moldovans travel the EU with Romanian passports as well, but they are small diaspora.
Oooh, well done! I need you on my team. #newtrenddetected, is this the Osterdahl secret? Hmmm...I WAS NOT WRONG!
