Ok so Azerbaijan would still be the winner. Sweden would be second and Greece third!?! Oh my God! Italy would be 11th. It should be lower if you ask me! Spain would be 16th... Still low! That was meant to be in top 12 (at least!). Hungary 17th. Another underrated. And here is the most criminally underrated song! Slovenia 22nd?!?! Are you fucking kidding me Europe?!

Kick the juries out! Check this out! Italy would be the winner? Why? To welcome them back and to lick their asses so that they stay in the contest for good! Some of you might like the song. Well I don't and it's definitely not a winner! There were much better songs than this! The only and I repeat the only positive thing from the jury's votes would be Slovenia's 4th place (that's where they should have ended on May 14th!) and Serbia's 8th place! And look at this! France! That was a favourite to win all these weeks prior to the contest. Many called this song a jury bait but even in the jury voting they were 11th! Not even in the top 10! I was also surprised by UK's 22nd place! Wow! And they fucked up with my Spain! Damn! And Russia last? Well I don't like the song, I don't like Alexej but there were worse songs than this.

I can't get this! It's totally insane! Insane! And Bulgaria would be 14th?! What the hell Europe? Poli deserved that final more than anyone else in that semi. Well Slovenia too. And Belarus would be in? Seriously? Estonia would be out! Here you go! Flopped in the televoting. At least I am a bit vindicated! But Israel 11th?! Aaaargh!!!!

Belgium would be in and Bosnia & Herzegovina out? Hello! Honestly do they really have experts in the juries? Sweden 3rd? Do they use their ears? Huh? Israel would be 16th. In both cases Dana would have missed the final but I still think juries should be kicked out! People might be thinking in a different way when they vote because they might say "oh what will the juries vote for?" and be affected. I still think that without the juries Dana would be in! Yeah yeah I know I always talk about her but she became my winner when the ESC week began. That would be on May 9th.

Ok I read what I wrote and I saw that I curse quite a lot. I apologise! xD So now I think that the ESC 2011 is officially over. Or is there anything else we're waiting for? I think the split results was the last thing we needed. No?

I'd like to thank Matt from for taking the time and writing the results the way I gave them to you because the results given by were ranked according to the running order.

And after all that let's enjoy again the one and only! ;D

"I still think that without the juries Dana would be in!" I know that you love Dana but if you look at the televote she still would not have got into the final there is no if, ands, or buts what happen happened.

You may not like the Italian song but I like it. I'm glad that it won the jury vote and it has nothing to do that Italy finally came back. To me because I'm a big fan of that type of music I think it should have won the contest and that it was one of the best songs in the contest!! In 2006 when Finland won I was not so happy because I don't like that type of music but I lived with it I did not go "HOLY SHIT WHY DID THAT FUCKING SONG WIN. THERE ARE WAY MORE BETTER SONGS THEN THAT. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!"

Also Belgium was good and to me had a better show then Dana did. I'd like to see you and other people come together and write using ONLY your voices and make to ESC.

Last thing I agree with you that Spain should have been alot higher in both votes. A top 10 placing would have been nice.

Thank you for your comment.
Well I know that Dana would have missed the final even if we counted only the televoting but I wrote that the fact that the juries are voting might affect the way televoters think. Of course what is done is done but since they make public the split results I like commenting them. :)

About Italy, of course! It's your opinion. You love this kind of music and I don't. Everything is subjective here. ;) If Italy had won I would definitely react the way you mentioned. Because at that time I'd be really "angry" about it. As I was in 2006 and 2008 but after a while I let it go. I think it's a normal reaction when a song that you don't like wins. At that moment you are angry. After a while it's an old story and you move on to the next contest.

"I'd like to see you and other people come together and write using ONLY your voices and make to ESC." I'm sorry I didn't get that... :S

And just for the record Spain was in my top 3 this year. I knew there were no chances of finishing there but I would LOVE to see them in the top 10.

And to end this I will say once again that my reaction to the results is the one I got right after I saw them. I started blogging as soon as I saw the results so I think it's normal to react like that especially when my very few favourites didn't make it. :P I will soon let it go and move on. ;)

Yeah I see what you're saying and I understand. What I would suggest is that you maybe wait awhile after you read some news so that way you don't sound much as well for lack of better words a jackass. But still I understand what you are talking about and thats normal

Let me correct myself here:

I'd like to see you and other people come together and write a song using ONLY your voices and make it to ESC

Well I comment everything right away because it's also a some kind of informative blog. If I wait as you say I won't have readers in the future! :P They would have already seen the results! :P haha

Well I'm far from a song writer if that's what you mean... haha
