Fellow Eurofans,

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who's taken part in the discussions on the BBC Eurovision News Blog in 2011. This year's contest had its fair share of drama and it's been great to share every moment with you.

We're closing the News Blog at midday on Wednesday 22nd June - although you'll be able to read all of the posts that have already been made.

See you all in 2012!

2011's Eurovision Song Contest was a year in which ALL of the pre-competition favourites (including France, Hungary, and Estonia) crashed and burned, and where there was no runaway winner.  In fact, Azerbaijan's winning tune - Ell/Nikki's 'Running Scared' - actually got the lowest winning score for nearly 10 years.

 

GRAND FINAL: COMBINED JURY/TELEVOTE RESULTS

1. Azerbaijan - Ell/Nikki, "Running Scared" - 221 pts

2. Italy - Raphael Gualazzi, "Madness of Love" - 189 pts

GRAND FINAL: TELEVOTE ONLY

If the votes in each country had been based solely on the votes that were phoned in by members of the public, the results (if not the actual winner) would have looked VERY different indeed...

1. Azerbaijan - 223

2. Sweden - 221

3. Greece - 176

4. Ukraine - 168

5. United Kingdom - 166

6. Bosnia & Herzegovina - 151

7. Russia - 138

8. Georgia - 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

Fascinating, huh? Blue from the UK suddenly leaps six places in the overall voting. Italy plunges 10 places, and Denmark plummets from 5th to 18th.

 

GRAND FINAL: JURY VOTE ONLY

And here's how the finishing table would have looked if ONLY the results of each country's National Jury of music industry professionals had been counted...

1. Italy - 251 pts

2. Azerbaijan - 182

3. Denmark - 168

4. Slovenia - 166

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

The National Jury votes were cast after watching the performances of the 2nd dress rehearsal on the evening of Fri 13th May - perhaps explaining why many countries saw such a vast discrepancy between their televote and jury vote scores. Denmark, Slovenia and Austria scored much better with the Juries than the public (up to 3rd from 18th, up to 4th from 22nd and 5th from 24th respectively), whereas Spain dropped from 16th to 24th, the UK fell from 5th to 22nd, and Russia plummeted from 7th to 25th.
