    I think the UK will be somewhere between 7th and 10th.
  3. CTP Jass hater

    This is going to upset a lot of people - they wont be able to accuse the EBU of propagating the worlds greatest conspiracy theory by "hiding" the jury and televotes.

    The Televoting order: (or my prediction at least).

    Bosnia & Herzegovina
    United Kingdom

    I get the feeling France and the Ukraine could be in the mix too. Last? Either Finland or Spain, probably Spain.

    I also reckon the UK will be somewhere between 7th and 10th :) I think Spain will have finished around 18th-20th with the televote, and Sweden finished a fair bit higher aswell. What will be interesting will be to see whether Azerbaijan or Iceland finished 2nd in the televote .. i'm guessing Azerbaijan :)

    Just my luck...on Friday I'm leaving..grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
    Anyway I think that either Norway or Azerbaijan won the televote, Greece was 5th, Turkey was 3rd and Iceland was somewhere between 4-6. The Uk I say 7-10. I also think B&H must have been in the top 6.
  6. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    If Azerbaijan did win the televote i'll be pretty hacked off that they didn't win overall, because imo they had by far the best performance in the final :D But somehow I still reckon Norway was the runaway winner with the public aswell.

    As for last place, if I remember rightly Chiara was helped majorly by the juries, yet she still finished kinda low so I wouldn't be surprised if Malta were last with the televote. Or Denmark were also helped tonnes by the juries but they finished quite a bit higher than Malta so I doubt they're last in the televoting but maybe bottom 5.

    My prediction:

    1. Norway
    2. Azerbaijan
    3. Turkey
    4. Greece
    5. Estonia
    6. Bosnia & Herzegovina
    7. Iceland
    8. Armenia
    9. Russia
    10. Ukraine
    11. United Kingdom

    I only planned to do a top 10, but I wanted to include my prediction for the UK too. :P
  8. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    I still reckon the UK were in the top 10, and Iceland was still in the top 4 at least, cos they did finish 2nd with the juries and they held that position even when the televoting was combined so I doubt they finished lower than 3rd or 4th in the televoting :)

    OK well anyway heres my top 10 prediction:
    1: Norway
    2: Azerbaijan
    3: Iceland
    4: Turkey
    5: Greece
    6: Estonia
    7: Bosnia Herz.
    8: UK
    9: Armenia
    10: Russia
  9. Mina Member with a "past"

    I'm sure Iceland was in the top 5..remember the won the semi.

    well i have news for you all - i have found the final jury vote combined and where that leaves all the countries in the final *sourced by the finnish blog god ilkhar* http://ilkar.blogspot.com/2009/05/eurovision-song-contest-2009-final.html

    as i cba to make it all red anything in brackets = the final jury score

    We can see that the top-2 would be the same but smaller margin. UK and France climb up while Azerbaijan and Turkey drop. Biggest climbers are however Denmark, Germany, Malta and Israel. Armenia, Russia and Albania drop the most while Spain and Finland switch places at the bottom.

    "If Azerbaijan did win the televote i'll be pretty hacked off that they didn't win overall, because imo they had by far the best performance in the final But somehow I still reckon Norway was the runaway winner with the public aswell"

    My point exactly :)

    I have thought of something interesting. We all know that the EBU has promised to reveal to us the split voting today. However, what I am wondering is what time[/B] today these votes will be announced.

    I reckon it will probably be some time this afternoon - the late afternoon to be precise.
  13. Jonny Ginger Tory Witch

    Ok my thoughts :D
    > Whew thank god the UK was still in the top 10 with the televoters (albeit, 10th :D)
    > France, 17th with voters :o OUCH! It just goes to show however famous you are you NEED a good song to impress the voters, and Pat's wasn't very voter friendly and it showed.
    > Not surprised Israel would have been last, the 2nd slot killed them unforuntunately, which is a shame because it was a nice performance :(
    > Poor Chiara, she deserved better than 24th with the voters but I can't say i'm surprised.
    > The juries screwed Malena over which is kinda weird but hey! She desereved more :D
    > Albania 11th with voters!? :o WTF!!!? (Sorry but I cannot get my head around this song :D)

    BUT overall apart from a couple of cases the results weren't exactly shocking or controversial :) Anyway now i'm gonna go totally geek out on the crosstables :P

    EDIT: O M F G Malta gave UK 12 points in televoting, THANK YOUUUUUU MALTA!!! Interestingly Greek voters only gave us 5 despite the fact they gave us 12 in the final.
    EDIT AGAIN: mwahahaha I know why :D Greek jury only gave 3 to Rybak :D :D :D And the Uk would have got 6 12 points if it were just jury votes :o
  14. c1ask0 Napkin of death holder

    WE NEED MORE 12 POINTS!!!!!!

    Actually, I just noticed that the top 5 in the televoting was NOT close at all, and so for the purposes of entertainment the jury was most certainly a fun addition this year. :D

    the fact russia did well is shocking
    but overall i am quite pleased with the results *having known half of them already!*
  16. c1ask0 Napkin of death holder

    Guys! I am using the escnation/tummiweb voting system - the one that we use for the contest - to recreate what the voting would look like if only the televoting had been used.

    As soon as it is ready I will post it! :)
