I agree every year I still find it fishy how the bookies know everything especially the week leading up. Only Suprise for me was Greece getting so many votes.I find the voting results strange to take. Lets say the jury like there rock music, they give Italy 206 votes and Finland only 83. And for me I actually prefered Finlands over it. How Italy got so many is surprising. It also seemed like the bookies knew italy had it in the bag, I just dont get how they know that. Before the jury votes I seen a few bookies go odds on for italy. Another thing, when it comes to viewers who watch and vote on Eurovision, rock fans wouldn't strike me as the type. I thought italy were false favourites and I'm just glad i dont have a Betfair account anymore
Best song for me was Switzerland. Had them backed each way at 20s antepost.
Betting wise other than that it was a shocker. Lithuania E/W was ruined by jury only giving 55 votes. Also Malta looked nailed on but didnt get the viewers votes surprisingly. Expected Cyprus and Norway to finish higher
Backed Germany to finish bottom. Worst song by a mile. How they got 3 votes by the jury is something else. How do they justify that.
I think next year I'm just going to back whatever is favourite on the Saturday before live show.
I'm glad Italy won however personally thought the France and Switzerland songs were rancid.
I agree with you however with me being a rock fan I did think the Finland entry was better than Italy's.
I echo what a few have said next year I will wait I still came out with a £22 pound profit thanks to the UK finishing bottom.
