For long years the voting has been about politics, no matter who votes. Just saying.

You got a lot of votes from the people this time, at least. :D


But yeah, I'll just copy my comment from another site here:

"While the jury vote did overwhelmingly support the actually best song, the people's votes were just an extension of the war in Ukraine, with the always extremely actively voting Russian minorities (who are mostly, in a sadly amusing, amusingly sad twist (descendants of) those brought in as a replacement for those deported) voting for Russia and the victims of Soviet/Russian aggression voting for Ukraine, with the better songs getting a few votes on the side.

It was nice to see the jury votes separately this year, though. So far there's been no such visible evidence against allowing the people to vote, now we've finally seen the reality. Sadly I don't think the televoting will ever go away again, though. It's such a big source of income and a huge element drawing the people to actually watch the competition."

Exception from the rule, I assure you :P

Why would they think that it's only minorities that voted for Russia and not people who actually liked it? Russia was one of my favs after seeing the rest of the competitors >.> In all honesty, I like the whole thing less and less with each year passing.

Oh, both Russia and Ukraine had good songs, no question about that. But a lot of their votes still come from people who don't really care about that but just want to see the country win.
