  1. Congrats to Emmelie!!! It was a great song!!! But nonetheless, it was the same old, same old Eurovision which was tainted by the usual politics….

    I have to speak frankly (and don’t get mad because these are just examples of the problem): When are the Norwegians going to be brave and, instead of predictably (and cowardly) voting for Sweden, vote for someone else like…Portugal!!

    When are the Ukranians going to be brave and, instead of predictably (and cowardly) voting for other former Russian countries, vote for someone different…like the Netherlands (or, someone else).

    When are the Serbians going to be brave and, instead of predictably (and cowardly) voting for other former Yugoslavian countries, vote for someone different like…France (or, anybody else).

    My point is that, very unfortunately, politics prevails over artistic quality. That, honestly, is a shame…because we already know, pretty much, who is going to win!! It’s either going to be a country from the Scandinavian bloc, or the Russian bloc, or the Yugoslavian bloc, or the Greek-Eastern bloc.

    The realistic chances for Portugal or Austria to win are ZERO!!! Regardless of their musical quality, many countries should not even bother going to Eurovision, because these MAFIAS already have decided who are they going to vote and who will be the winner. It is all a SHAME (especially in this world filthy with political, financial and economic corruption). I think that Eurovision should be a haven for honesty and freedom, rather than another reflection of the corruption that plagues our world. Just a comment.

  2. Dear mr. Oscar Lopez

    This is really not right 🙂

    Maybe the songs from Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the Balkans are the best songs 🙂

    5 Scandinavian countries can not alone decide that Denmark or Sweden wins the contest. They will need points from many other countries too 🙂

    Envy is a very bad thing 🙂

  3. Steffen (Denmark)

    Congratulations Emmelie we are very proud of you in Denmark.

    Oskar Lopez: did you watch this years competition? Portugal did not take part, maybe Norway would have given them 12, but when a country withdraws you can’t use them as an example.

    Serbia gave 12 to Denmark, i don’t think we are a former Yogoslavian Republic?

    Germany won in 2010 and they are neither Russian, Scandinavian or Yugoslavian, but they send an amazing song.

  4. Christina Madsen

    Dear mr. Oscar Lopez,

    There are only 3 Scandinavian Countries (Denmark, Sweden and Norway). Finland and Iceland are Nordic Countries.

    Norway hardly gave Denmark any points – so they were not the reason we won.

    Serbia is a Balcan country, they gave Denmark 12 points.

    What about Lena winning for Germany?
    Germany has never been either a Scandinavian, nor Balcan og Russian republic.

    So your point is not correct.

  5. i am proud of Anouk first time in manny years in the finale and then the 9th place

  6. Stephan (Germany)

    Sure there will always be political and neighbourly voting. The Netherlands and Belgium, Uk and Ireland, Portugal and Spain – the list is nearly endless.

    BUT: none of the winners did succeed because of block voting! Lena is a good example – Germany participates in no block (but always votes high for Turkey…) and Lena got points from all over Europe. All Scandinavian countries gave 12 points. And that was not because Lena is a popular name there so they thought it could be a scandic song…

    The same with Loreen. Points came in from all over the different regions – high points. So it was with Alexander Rybak or Emmelie de Forest. Ell & Nikki got more from the eastern countries, but there were still enought points from the west.

    There are about 40 countries participationg every year with about 40 jurys and millions of televoters. In most of the countries there do live many foreign people who often vote for their (or their ancestors) countries, Every country has neighbours, that often have cultural and historical commons. Some of the points are political, but not all. No former yugoslavian country reached the final this year so block voting did not help them.

    Maybe “sometimes” (nearly every year) the good old phrase may become reality: “May the best song win!” – we have to say that many good songs come from Scandinavia. In 2012 there were 10 songs in the ESC written by Swedish authors/componists. House and Sweden are nearly the same word. Sweden is even bigger than the UK now in the music business.

    On the other hand we have the UK -artists or componist who had no hit in the last 20 years (Engelbert Humperdinck, Blue, Stock&Aitken, Bonnie Tyler…) are sent to get some points. Spain, France, the UK and in many years Germany can feel lucky about there is no semi final for them. Don’t they see what Europe wants? These countries fell asleep in the 80s or early 90s. Lena was a little wake up call, but it didn’t last long. Cascada was bullshit such most things this four big nations send every year.
    Some small countries do the same mistakes – such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, the baltic countries. And by the way – nearly noone in Europe woul vote for a fado song, even Portugal sent those nearly every year.
