It's getting better with the rule changes. Switzerland and Hungary got into the final and they diefiniately didn't get votes from close countries. (No Austria/Germany/Italy or Austria/Slovenia/Slovakia/Romania/Czech Rep. in the first semi.)
But come the final, all the Scandinavians that made it will be voting for each other, the Balkans will do the same, Ukraine will be giving to Russia and Russia to Ukraine with the Belorussians waiting to receive as well, and should Cyprus qualify - they shouldn't but if hell freezes over - it's more certain that the former will happen that Greece's 12 points going anywhere else...etc, etc
The political voting is as rampant as ever.
What they've done with the pot system is preventing daylight robbery but you can't avoid them going on in the night
Come on, don't be so patriotic.
It's cheap Eurodance.
It's a fan favorite in Dusseldorf, but so was Norway..
I wasn't expecting Hungary to qualify at all, now that they made it it's obvious that somebody likes it.
It's grossly overrated alongside some others in the same vein, so I suspect it was a matter of just squeezing in the final - which means no top 10 for them come the night..the refrain is sooo lame.
Then again there's 10% chance that I might be wrong.
As a matter of fact, Azerbaijan and Denmark are not so hot either...once their initial sheen wears off they can get pretty annoying...pretty quickly.
