Some big differences here- most notably Finland losingo ut massively because of the juries ranking them 15th, compared to a televoting sixth. Estonia were victims of the reverse, being ranked 8th by juries but 16th in the televoting. Latvia finished last on all counts, and Slovakia also failed to impress either vote. Unusually Macedonia were the victims of a lack of televotes, wheras in the 3 years previous they had been denied a final place due to the juries. Malta failed to gain enough televotes to build on finishing 7th with the juries. Russia and Belarus the big winners from the televoting carrying 50% as they would have missed out with juries.

No surprises that Greece won the televote, however notice just how far behind the top two the juries put them. For the second year running Iceland finished in the top two on a straight televote, something you’d never have guessed after the 2007 and 2008 televote-only finals. Belgium finished third on the televoting but only five points behind first place, however won the jury vote by a massive 58 point difference over Portugal, who came second in the same vote- but 8th in televoting.
