So it was in the end a bit of a romp to victory for Loreen from Sweden.
I am delighted as I love the song and love Stockholm where we will most
likely end up next year.
Keith has already departed for the airport and I am waiting to depart.
In the meantime how did my predictions do?
1: U.K. 16-20th Finished 25th, a poor result.
2: Hungary 21-26th Finished 24th so spot on.
3: Albania 11-15th A great result for Albania finishing 5th
4: Lithuania 21-26th Finished 14th so also better than expected result.
5: Bosnia-Herzegovina 21-26th Finished 18th
6: Russia 1-5th Finished 2nd so spot on here.
7: Iceland 16-20th Finished in 20th so just spot on.
8: Cyprus 6-10th Finished 16th which was so unfair.
9: France 21-26th Finished 22nd which is spot on.
10: Italy 1-5th Finished 9th slightly disappointing.
11: Estonia 11-15th Finished 6th which is a great result.
12: Norway 16-20th Finished 26th a very poor result on Tooji's birthday
13: Azerbaijan 6-10th Finished 4th which is a good result for the hosts.
14: Romania 11-15th Finished 12th which is spot on again.
15: Denmark 16-20th Finished 23rd so a big disappointment here.
16: Greece 21-26th Finished 17th which is better than I thought it deserved.
17: Sweden 1-5th Finished on the top spot and was a runaway winner.
18: Turkey 16-20th Finished 7th another good finish for Turkey.
19: Spain1-5th Finished 10th a little bit lower than I would have hoped.
20: Germany 21-26th Finished 8th another top 10 now 3 in a row.
21: Malta 6-10th Finished 21st a really sad finish for a great song.
22: Macedonia 6-10th Finished 13th slightly lower than I wished it to do.
23: Ireland 6-10th Finished 20th a huge disappointment for Ireland.
24: Serbia 1-5th Finished 3rd so spot on here.
25: Ukraine 11-15th Finished 16th so just missed this by 1 place.
26: Moldova 11-15th Finished 11th so spot on.
So I got 8 countries positions correct and a few more were just outside
my suggestion either up or down.
No waiting at airport with Elaine and some of the rest of the gang
ready to board our first flight to Istanbul.
