Eurovision Televote vs Jury Results

I was glad to see the Swedish Eurovision Entry manage to secure the victory at the weekend. For a long time it had started to look like the Russian entry might edge ahead.  At the half way point though that all changed.

Following the competition the Televote and Jury results were released. For the life of me I don't know why they still use a Jury when a pure telephone vote would be the fairest way of working it. That said, the outcome really would've been quite different with Italy romping home to a convincing win and Russia just pipping Sweden to second place.

Of course the dire performance of the UK entry is consistent across both types of voting, confirming that it was the musical turd that many had considered it to be.
