The representative of Eurovision could not be otherwise than all four of the women to the winner cry. To ensure that each and every lady a medal would have, were now only the performers of the winning song a copy, and had the writers the without. And, as the tradition prescribes, if all four of the winners with their song again.

There Is still a tie, then wins the song, in which more countries points gifts. In other words: the number of 12 countries, one point was given, you will win the song of one country 12 points.
