TarizSolis, flopho and westhammer have yet to vote.

I logged in after several days to feed the last 10 sets or so to the scoreboard, and the result shocked me in more ways than one.
The country that was #1 last time I checked is now at #11, while one country has way less points than I expected.

I would add a new rule: if somebody has failed to vote during the no-penalty period and hasn't logged in since the voting process started, he/she will get automatically disqualified.

Indonesia gets a 10-point penalty. Additionally, TarizSolis cannot play in June.

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 :o 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 :lol: )
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.

oh wow, kinda had a feeling it would do well but didn't expect it to win! Thanks to everyone who voted for Germany. Imo the song is too formulaic and radio-oriented but still enjoyable. @Grybop it's actually my first win overall lol

Really thought Poland was going to win, it really stood out, kinda feel like even the 6th place is too low. Surprised to see Indonesia this low and about the US result, thought it would do worse considering it's a pretty standard country pop song.
I kinda had a love-hate-relationship with the Italian song :lol:
Shame on me for changing...no, shame on you for staying the same

I feel I have to write something like every month, yet my mind is not really up to it right now. It's not a snub, it's just that this has been a really bad day for me so I will just say thank you to all who voted for me, give congrats to the not-so-flop-ho and skip the comments this time around.

Well done flopho, definitely a deserved win! Good to see Denmark, Sweden and Australia top 10.

Very happy with 4th for Gabrielle Aplin, it's a gorgeous little song. Thank you for the votes!

I liked The Blaze quite a lot, but now I feel less bad it was one of the only two songs to finish below my entry. :lol:

I am disappointed my entry didn't connect with anyone here. It's my favorite of my submissions thus far. Maybe someday I'll finish in the top half.

Congratulations, flopho - great song - it got my top vote. :)
