What is the insanely exciting vote! Has there ever been so unclear – and even – after juryrösterna? Sweden and John Lundvik ended up in management after the jury had their say, two measly points before the completely unexpected jurytvåan Nordmakedonien.
And has rarely been the juries and the viewers been so disagree – neither Nordmakedonien or Sweden went home with the people. It did, however, Norway, which received the highest score of all of the viewers, and finished in fifth place – but that the jury, in turn, rejected altogether. To the end, it became neither the jury or the viewers ' favorite won, but the Netherlands and Duncan Laurence, with the song ”the Arcade”.

. He has been the biggest förhandsfavoriten in over a month – a bit unexpected, actually. His type of stripped-down ballad, the web composed performed, one hundred percent seriously, usually do not win the Eurovision song contest. Place itself is pretty good, absolutely, but not to win. The nearest one is well Salvador Sobrals victory for Portugal in 2017 with jazzvisan ”Amar pelos dois”, but Duncan Laurences ”Arcade” has a much more modern sound than that.
And this year it was the Netherlands ' turn to win – for the first time since 1975, and in that way an incredibly fun winner. It is always fun, for competition and for the fans who follow it slavishly, when countries that have never or not for a very long time triumphed, making it to the end.
well to say that the evening ended up being a disappointment. Despite juryfavoritskapet ended John Lundvik-sixth. Admittedly, this is a top-ten place certainly nothing to be ashamed of, but certainly had higher hopes. Lundvik and the choir, not forgetting, for without Loulou Lamotte, Ashley Haynes, Paris Renita and Dinah Yonas Manna was ”Too late for love ' has definitely not been the same thing – to be proud and happy over their three minutes, which was powerful, superb-looking and had earned the better. A top-five position, or maybe even top-three, seemed absolutely within reach for the final. But it became now not.
oh Well, Sweden has still dominated the competition in an unprecedented way since 2011 – two gold medals, two bronze, two femteplatser, and only once have we missed the top-ten.
as for the actual tv programme as it is the Eurovision song contest of very varied quality from year to year. It is in the nature of things, where the tv companies with varying experience of this kind of jättesändningar take turns to keep in the show. Content-wise was this year's edition among the best in the 2000s – the opening sequence with the flight landing at the airport and flaggmarsch in the final was superb stylish, mellanakten where Måns Zelmerlöw, Conchita Wurst, Verka Serduchka and Eleni Foureira recognized each other's songs was luxurious (especially Foureiras version of the Ukrainian ”Lasha tumbai” was wonderful). But at the end tracked it down out of the properly – to be transported for the length of the voyage before we finally reached the scoring. Has Eurovision ever been so much in the time?
it was neither the San Marino Serhat or Greece Katerine Duska, who in the end stood for the worst falsksången during the evening without even Madonna in ”Like a prayer”, however, was just sad and a little unworthy. Never has one been so grateful for a vocoder, which, when it finally took over in her new single.
