Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 5th – The Big Five

The Big Four has been a contentious issue in Eurovision. As the biggest contributors to the EBU budget none of these countries have to qualify through the semi finals and instead get an automatic place in the final.

Rather than reform the concept, with the return of Italy the Big Four became the Big Five. Judging by the result Italy would have sailed through to the final even if they had had to compete in the semis. Runaway winner with the juries, 11th in the televoting and 2nd overall, it was a triumphant return for Italy after a break of 13 years.

Raphael Gualazzi – Madness Of Love – 2nd place in Düsseldorf with 189 points.
