Split jury and televote result of the Grand Final of Eurovision 2015

Split jury and televote result of the Grand Final of Eurovision 2015

On Saturday evening, the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 took place and, after three attempts to represent his country at Eurovision, Måns Zelmerlöw achieved Sweden’s sixth victory at the contest.

After the final, the EBU revealed the full list of split voting for 2015. Below, we take a look at the results of the final.

 

First disagreement since 2011

Sweden received 365 points, the third most ever received by a winner, after Alexander Rybak and Sweden’s last winner, Loreen.

For the first time since 2011, the jury and the public disagreed on the winner. Back then, the jury wanted Italy to win, while the televote favored Azerbaijan. This time, the jury chose Sweden as their winner, whereas the viewers wanted Italy. In fact, Sweden only came third in the televote, but with a 104 point lead over the juries’ second favorite, Latvia, and by placing Italy 6th on their list, the juries secured the Swedish victory.

 

Other agreements and disagreements

Knez achieved Montenegro’s best ever placing, 13th, thanks to the juries who placed him 12th. The televote placed him in 18th. The viewers and juries agreed on Elnur Hüseynov, who ended up placing 12th for Azerbaijan, failing to improve on his 8th place with Samir Javadzadeh in 2008.

Spain’s results surprised fans. After a very strong performance, Edurne landed in 21st place due to placing low with both the juries and the viewers.

Norway had a top ten finish, thanks to the jury vote, who placed them 7th whereas the public weren’t as impressed, placing Norway 17th, ending on a combined 8th place. This is the same placing as Carl Espen last year, and the third consecutive top ten placing for Norway.

Cyprus ended up on a combined 22nd place, but scored a 9th place with the juries. The viewers disagreed, placing the country in 23rd on their list.

Genealogy from Armenia scored a combined 16th place, with help from the viewers who placed them 11th on their list. However, the juries placed them 22nd on theirs.

While Albania landed on a satisfying 9th place with the viewers, the second-to-last placing by the juries caused Elhaida’s final placing to be at 17. The same thing happened to Monika from Poland, who placed 15th with the viewers, but dead-last with the juries, resulting in a combined 23rd placing.

 

Double nil points

For the first time since 2003, the dreaded ‘nil points’ were received in the final, however, two countries were unfortunate enough to receive them. Host country, Austria, and neighbours, Germany, were the unfortunate countries to score no points this year. Austria actually placed 13th in the jury vote, but was destroyed by the televote, which placed them last.

 

Double jury exclusion

After the grand final concluded, it was revealed that the jury votes of two Balkan countries had been excluded and their televotes made up 100 percent of their votes. The independent voting observer, the Exectutive Supervisior and the Chairman of the Reference group, made the decision that the jury votes of Montenegro and Macedonia would be excluded. This exclusion will be further discussed at the next Reference Group meeting in June.
