So before the annual moaning about Eurovision being unwinnable begins lets all take a look at the following page, sent to me after a post Eurovision post last year. It shows quite clearly that whilst there is some block voting, the overall result is not affected.
And, in addition to this, the semi final has been split into two with a mixture of countries in each. Each country will only be able to vote in ONE semi final which may have some interesting affects on the finalists. Part of the problem last year was that good acts from places like Switzerland and Austria simply never made it to the final .
So here's to Eurovision... 3 months and counting.
