Split votes revealed

The EBU has now revealed the split jury/televote results. As always these provide a fascinating insight into how Europe voted. You can see the split votes here.

Here is how the televoters ranked the songs;
1 Azerbaijan 223
2 Sweden 221
3 Greece 176
4 Ukraine 168
5 United Kingdom 166
6 Bosnia & Herzegovina 151
7 Georgia 138
8 Russia 138
9 Germany 113
10 Ireland 101
11 Italy 99
12 Moldova 98
13 Serbia 89
14 Romania 79
15 France 76
16 Spain 73
17 Hungary 64
18 Denmark 61
19 Iceland 60
20 Lithuania 55
21 Finland 47
22 Slovenia 39
23 Estonia 32
24 Austria 25
25 Switzerland 2

A very narrow win for Azerbaijan over Sweden and Greece and the U.K. doing better than they did in the combined vote. Once again ballads did poorly with Austria and Slovenia really suffering.

When you look at the juries, things get even more interesting.
1 Italy 251
2 Azerbaijan 182
3 Denmark 168
4 Slovenia 160
5 Austria 145
6 Ireland 119
7 Ukraine 117
8 Serbia 111
9 Sweden 106
10 Germany 104
11 Bosnia & Herzegovina 90
12 France 90
13 Romania 86
14 Greece 84
15 Moldova 82
16 Georgia 79
17 Finland 75
18 Estonia 74
19 Iceland 72
20 Lithuania 66
21 Hungary 60
22 United Kingdom 57
23 Switzerland 53
24 Spain 38
25 Russia 25

Italy are the runaway jury favourite, with eventual winner Azerbaijan coming in a distant second. The result of the U.K. and Russia are bound to get a lot of comment.

Here's a table showing the songs rated by how much higher the juries rated the songs.

Some might be surprised to see that Ireland did better with juries (6th) than on the televote (10th).

Interestingly if the old system of having 100% televote in the semi-final and letting the public choose 9 finalists and the juries picked the 10th, it would have changed the songs in the final. In semi one Armenia and Norway would have made the final because of the televote, at the expense of Serbia and Switzerland. Interestingly, Lithuania wouldn't have made the Top 10 on the televote (it finished 11th) but would get the jury wildcard as it won the jury vote. Azerbaijan, which ended up winning the contest was second to Lithuania in the jury vote and 2nd to Grece in the televote and combined vote. Surprisingly Malta and (6th) and more predictably San Marino (8th) did much better with juries

In semi-final two, Belarus would have made the final after finishing 9th in the televote at the expense of Estonia which only managed 13th in the semi. Israel, which many thought had made the Top 10 with televoters, only came 11th.

Bizarrely while in the final juries gave Ireland a better placing, in the semi, it was televoters (6th) who rated Jedward higher than juries (10th). It's more clear than ever that the draw is have a major impact on how the public votes.
