A change to the voting this year saw the televoting points revealed in reverse order of the jury results, rather than in reverse order of the televoting results as had been the case since 2016.
Over on Twitter, the very talented @euro_hater has recreated last night’s televote reveal to match what it would’ve looked like before this year’s change. Take a look!
A change for the better?
With the significant gap between Norway and The Netherlands, you would arguably have known the winner once Italy’s 3rd place finish had been revealed. Nevertheless, last night we waited until the final second to discover whether Sweden had scored enough points to overhaul The Netherlands.
Was it a lucky strike or a well calculated change? Let us know your thoughts @ESCXTRA!
