Let's start by:
How was the winning entrants selected?
To clarify some things, 'Publicly' are the ones chosen
From a national selection, while 'Internally' are the ones chosen by a specific jury set or behind closed doors.

1. How was the Eurovision winning performer selected?
Publicly: 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18 = 8 performer
Internally: 14, 19 = 2 performer

2. How was the Eurovision winning song selected?
Publicly: 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17 = 6 songs
Internally: 11, 14, 18, 19 = 4 songs

3. How was the televote winning performer selected?
Publicly: 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19 = 8 performers
Internally: 14, 16 = 2 performers

4. How was the televote winning song selected?

Gimme more! xheart

I love such stats1 Thanks for providing this info to us!
PErsonally, I think it's interesting to see that juries intend to treat internally chosen songs and entries determined by televoting alike (in terms of winning potential) whilst televoters clearly favor tracks which had been selected via televoting!

Let's continue with the public/internal selection data from all the participating countries.
To clarify, 1 means entries selected publicly (with a televised national final process) and 2 means entries selected internally (with specific juries, or behind closed doors).



Some clarifications:
1. Italy's 2011-2013 method is listed as internal since the winning entry in Sanremo was not exactly intended to be the Eurovision entry.
2. FiK is listed as public since the winner goes straight to Eurovision. Perhaps you guys can help me to clarify whether FiK sould be listed as public or internal.

It resulted in these datas



and in 'chart'-style interpretation, they would look like these:

1. Trend Comparison of Performer Selection, Public Selection VS Internal Selection


2. Trend Comparison of Song Selection, Public Selection VS Internal Selection


3. Public/Internal Ratio Comparation of Performer Selection Method VS Song Selection Method


EDIT 1: I mistakenly put Albania 2015's song as 'public'. Here are the results after the datas were corrected.
