The list of results of the countries that ended up among the first ten in Wednesday's qualifier round appeared in newspapers and on the internet. But the list is a hoax, the results are still not revealed. Somebody out there is having the time of his or her live, because someone made up this list and newspapers and websites publish them!
The list that appeared on the internet looks like this:
1. Ukraine – 358 points
2. Malta – 224 points
3. Albania – 206 points
4. Greece – 192 points
5. Serbia – 177 points
6. Cyprus – 153 points
7. Bosnia – 109 points
8. Croatia – 86 points
9. FYR Macedonia – 62 points
10. The Netherlands – 60 points
First of all, the total amount of points according to this list is higher than the actual amount of points given away. Svante Stockselius, Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, said in a press conference about the televoting problems that the difference between the number 10 and 11 was quite big. In the list provided here, the difference between 10 and 11 is only 3 points!
Esctoday.com asked the EBU for a reaction on the list: “These results are not the official results of Wednesday's qualifier round”, Aline Ingwersen of the EBU said. A short, but clear statement from the EBU!
The results of the qualifier round will be revealed tomorrow!
