I remember watching my first Eurovision Song Contest in 1988, aged 7. I have been a true fan since then.

    Well said, Wonderwall. The view in Belgium is pretty much the same view here in the United Kingdom. Juries reduce the distorting effect of diaspora voting. Those awful years in the early 2000s when it was the Eurovision Voting Contest are over and it’s all thanks to juries of music professionals.

    Armenians, Russians, Greeks and Turks/Azeri, have no reason to complain at all about the voting, while having their diaspora favoured their homecountry for years. The Netherlands never could rely on such a outlandisch base as we can happily life in our own country and (as a side effect can not vote for our own nation). So reaching the final and than 2nd spot sounds like a victory to us, while non qualifying or outside top 10 to these countries must feel like dead.

    Arka, being belgian I can only speak for Belgium. For years Armenia always received very high points from Belgium, even when the song was bad. This was all caused by Armenianswho were living in Belgium and who were voting a lot. The same happened with the Greeks as well. So for years the belgian votes didn’t reflect the taste of belgians at all. This had nothing to do with politics but everything with people voting for a sometimes bad song just out of patriotism. You (and some Greeks as well) may complain that combined with the jury vote Armenia (and Greece) suddenly receives few or no points from Belgium, but we Belgians have the feeling that our voting finally reflects our taste again. And I have a feeling there are some more countries in Europe that have the same feeling with the combined televoting-jury vote. This has really nothing at all to do with politics. It’s just normal honesty. That’s it! ;)

    Armenian’s song ,YOU are not alone” is a wonderful . I am sure that even ISRAEL’s, BELGIUM’s, ITALY’s GREECE’s juries,( and some others ) although took 12 points , which are earned by ARAM MP3 . NOW enjoy a wonderful song. MAy be the next year politics won’t impact on your taste ,Juries.
