Norway wins!

Not much of a surprise but Norway won by a record number of points, a complete landslide. They gained 387 points, the highest ever, and also 16 twelve points, the most ever. More of a surprise is the rest of the voting. Ukraine and Malta were nowhere to be seen in the top 10. The big surprises were Iceland in 2nd place, UK in 5th place and Estonia in 6th place.

Although being surprised by the voting I still managed to predict 9 out of the top 10 countries, albeit in completely the wrong order. The only country I got correct other than Norway was Romania in 19th place.

Here are the final results (my predicted places are in brackets):

1(1). Norway – 387 (16 out of 42 twelve points – Belarus, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine)
