The European Broadcasting Union issued a statement today stating that the official results of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 have been changed due to a mix up with Belarus’s aggregated jury points.

Belarus’s real jury had been dismissed after revealing who they voted for after the first semi final, so the EBU attempted to use an aggregated jury to make up their points, however this didn’t exactly go to plan as it’s now been revealed that their result was given upside down! This has made a few changes to the scoreboard, the most notable of which being North Macedonia now being the jury vote winner! Here are the new updated results and the positional changes:

  1. Netherlands – Duncan Laurence – Arcade – 498 Points (0)
  2. Italy – Mahmood – Soldi – 472 Points (0)
  3. Russia – Sergey Lazarev – Scream – 370 Points (0)
  4. Switzerland – Luca Hanni – She Got Me – 364 Points (0)
  5. Sweden – John Lundvik – Too Late For Love – 334 Points (+1)
  6. Norway – KEiiNO – Spirit in the Sky – 331 Points (-1)
  7. North Macedonia – Tamara Todevska – Proud – 305 Points (+1)
  8. Azerbaijan – Chingiz – Truth – 302 Points (-1)
  9. Australia – Kate Miller-Heidke – Zero Gravity – 284 Points (0)
  10. Iceland – Hatari – Hatrid Mun Sigra – 232 Points (0)
  11. Czech Republic – Lake Malawi – Friend of a Friend – 157 Points (0)
  12. Denmark – Leonora – Love Is Forever – 120 Points (0)
  13. Cyprus – Tamta – Replay – 109 Points (+2)
  14. Malta – Michela – Chameleon – 107 Points (+2)
  15. Slovenia – Zala Kralj & Gaspar Santl – Sebi – 105 Points (-2)
  16. France – Bilal Hassani – Roi – 105 Points (-2)
  17. Albania – Jonida Maliqi – Ktheju Tokes – 90 Points (+1)
  18. Serbia – Nevena Bozovic – Kruna – 89 Points (-1)
  19. San Marino – Serhat – Say Na Na Na – 77 Points (+1)
  20. Estonia – Victor Crone – Storm – 76 Points (-1)
  21. Greece – Katerine Duska – Better Love – 74 Points (0)
  22. Spain – Miki – La Venda – 54 Points (0)
  23. Israel – Kobi Marimi – Home – 35 Points (0)
  24. Belarus – Zena – Like It – 31 Points (+1)
  25. Germany – S!sters – Sister – 24 Points (-1)
  26. United Kingdom – Michael Rice – Bigger Than Us – 11 Points (0)

This was Belarus’s jury vote during the show, these points have now been taken off the scoreboard;

12 Points – Israel
10 Points – Estonia
8 Points – Germany
7 Points – Norway
6 Points – Spain
5 Points – United Kingdom
4 Points – San Marino
3 Points – Serbia
2 Points – Iceland
1 Point – Australia

This is what Belarus’s jury result should have been and the points here have been added to the scoreboard accordingly.

12 Points – Malta
10 Points – North Macedonia
8 Points – Cyprus
7 Points – Italy
6 Points – Netherlands
5 Points – Azerbaijan
4 Points – Switzerland
3 Points – Greece
2 Points – Sweden
1 Point – Russia

This is the first time in the modern era a mistake like this has occured. What do #YOU think of it all? Do you expect better from the EBU?

    Glad this has been corrected, but a really poor error on the EBUs part. What I find the most disappointing, and downright wrong, with the current system though is that we end up with neither the Juries favourite (North Macedonia) or the publics favourite (Norway) finishing in the top 5 of the results. Surely this means we ended up with a top 5 that nobody wanted?

    We also had neither the jury or televoting winner recognised in any way.
    Norway’s achievement was completely unnoticed unless you paid enough attention and North Macedonia will never have that chance of sitting at the top at the end of jury voting. Sweden got the honour and the interview.
    Is Tamara going to get her interview? Her apology?

    Poor Michaela was really done over last week, wasn’t she? Last be announced as a qualifier. Put on screen when her poor televote was revealed and now denied her only douze point moment.
