Yes love vikings[DOUBLEPOST=1526164728][/DOUBLEPOST]Israel will win I think
You’ll need a nap if you don’t want to fall asleep during the replay tonight....well... 3 and a half hours later and that is it... phew!... I'm stuffed now lol!... I stayed up all night so as not to sleep through it... I may need a 'Nanna nap' methinks lol!... thanks for all of the fun my friends... it's be a great ride... cheers.
I got maybe 3 hours sleep, friends visiting in a minute.....early night for me, cheers all......eventually going to check how many votes = 9 points ?.....
...I did have a 'nanna nap' for about the same length of time as the contest itself and have just had a shower and am all 'sparkly' again lol!... well... I really liked my first ever Eurovision grand final even though Australia rated so mediocre... I'm wondering whether or not the Europeans are over us being the 'new kids on the block' and have tired of us and that the 'honeymoon' with us and them is over now?...You’ll need a nap if you don’t want to fall asleep during the replay tonight.
Public votes get judged on a 12 scale by country as well I believe. The most voted in a country gets the 12 so they are all ranked per country....and how the final public votes increase from 1 or 2 digit points up to the hundreds of points for the higher ranking contestants I will never know!...
Won’t happen in Eurovision. If the rules are the same as a few years ago, if Australia won, it would have been held in the same country that it was held in previously. So it would have been Portugal again.how would it go down with us hosting both the European version and the Asian version in the same year?... how would that work?...
...aaaah!... **the penny drops**... thanks for explaining it to me my friend...Public votes get judged on a 12 scale by country as well I believe. The most voted in a country gets the 12 so they are all ranked per country.
Final score is based on these scales from each country.
...aaaah!... **the penny drops (part 2)**... oh okay ... thanks again Affable for the explanations my friend... cheers.Won’t happen in Eurovision. If the rules are the same as a few years ago, if Australia won, it would have been held in the same country that it was held in previously. So it would have been Portugal again.
EDIT: Just read that it would have been held somewhere in Europe and co-hosted by Australia and another country.
Not sure it works like that. I assume that there would be heaps of votes from each country. However I am not sure how they collate them and make a result of those votes. Australia ended up receiving 6 votes from Malta, 2 votes from Denmark and 1 vote from the United Kingdom.I am still bewildered Jess got only 9 points from public???That could mean just 1 person called, or 2, or at most 9???? WTF
I counted more drunk Aussies at the thing live.....who can vote for Jess....were they so drunk they slipped and voted Austria???
I wonder though how much bigger the final audience is over the the semis. I’d guess the final audience is more mainstream and the semis more just for Eurovision die hards. Maybe the diehards are more okay with Australia being in than the wider audience is.Semifinal results have been released. Jess came 4th out of 18 songs in her semi, she was only beaten by Norway,Sweden and Moldova. Dont know what happened in the final given that I thought she was much better than in the semi.
