As others said, this wasn't a good month. I thought and hoped Philippines would win, at least that's how it looked until the second big wave of voters came in. Which brings me to another observation: it happens very often that those who vote first, vote similarly, then those who wait until the last couple of days to vote, vote very differently but also very similarly to each other!
Anyway, I didn't expect such a low placing I must say, everyone I've recommended The Blaze to responded very positively - the song I chose even got featured on the New York Times, a rare feat for a french act, I believe.
I can't say I like the winner, but it's notable that at some point it was ahead by some 80 points
Congrats, flopho! Is this your first win under your new moniker?
Glad Australia and Greece did well. Poland was a nice surprise, cute and quirky video, too. Norway sounded like a copycat of 100 songs, while Canada was EXTREMELY annoying (thanks for the votes though
The controversial Swedish song notched up a top 5 placing, I imagine some of you didn't vote it on purpose, which, of course, remains your right.
The American song is not something I'd normally like, but somehow it managed to touch me.
See you in June in Cologne! Probably with a little surprise as well.
