Without the virtue signalling and sympathy votes, the winning song would be near the bottom of the poll in a normal year
Sorry, but that is completely wrong.
No virtue signalling from me but it was a song that was strong enough to win in any year, in my opinion.
The Polish song was good but not as strong as the UK.
The most interesting thing for me, is how European political voting played out in Eurovision.
We all know that this is not really a music contest but political competition, right?
Number 1 Ukraine.
Number 2 UK.
Second from last France.
That says it all for me.
Europeans have gained respect for Ukraine and the UK.
And lost respect for France and Germany.
