One month after the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 the EBU have released the split televote and jury votes.
The results from most country’s juries were reasonably similar, although one country had very similar results indeed, the Armenian jury had the exact same top 3 (albeit in a different order for some) except one member, Arthur Asatryan, who gave his 12 points to Italy (The country where he now lives). 4 of the Armenian members gave Georgia their 12 points, whilst Arthur gave them 8. 3 members gave Slovenia 10. 3 members gave Malta 8 points and two gave the 10 points to Destiny. At first glance the Armenian jury looked somewhat ‘rehearsed’.
The Belorussian jury preferred the Maltese song, with all 5 members giving Destiny the 12 points, with the televote only giving her 7 points. Armenia received 10 points from 4 members of the Belorussian jury and 7 points from one of them. Russia didn’t do too well with the jury from Belarus, although received 12 points from their neighbour’s televote.
The most unusual votes from this year’s JESC came from Ukraine, who gave San Marino 12 points from the Jury and 12 points from the televote. San Marino received 36 points all together, 12 of those were automatically given to them, along with ever other song due to rules stating all songs receive 12 automatically, so from the 24 awarded from voting, half of those came from Ukraine, the other half were given by other former USSR nations, Russia (where Kamilla grew up), Armenia and Belarus.
The Irish votes were the first ever in JESC, their Jury votes seemed reasonably ‘normal’ compared to the final results, although their televote was rather unusual, with Bulgaria receiving 12 and Georgia receiving 10.
Australia, too, were voting for the first time in JESC, and they used 100% jury vote. Their top 5 were the same as the actual top 5 at the end of the night, in a slightly different order.
