The way how the jury votes and televotes are combined changed a little bit this year. Unlike in previous years, this time the juries ranked all the songs instead of their Top 10. Therefore the juries have slightly more power which can be seen in the results of Italian voting.
RAI revealed the exact percentages of televoting results which shows that Romania received over 20% of all the televotes in the final. However, Cezar received only one point from Italy as the jury has apparently ranked him very low. The jury votes haven’t been revealed.
In Azerbaijan even the president is surprised to notice that Russia didn’t receive any points at all. Azerbaijan usually gives Russia high points but this year not a single point. The president demands a recount of votes but it might be that the jury has simply ranked Russia lower than the televoters. According to the data collected from mobile operators by News.az, Russia was the most voted or second most voted by the audience.
Also Montenegro is confused by this new voting format – Analitika wonders why Ukraine received full 12 points from the country in the semi-final but nothing at all in the final.
