Some observations:

- Netherlands did win but wasn't as much of a favourite as people thought. He neither won the jury not the televote.
- Germany getting 0 points from the public was the least surprising thing of the evening.
- The jury's obsession with North Macedonia was weird. It was just a generic, boring balad.
- The guys from Iceland are absolute legends.
- The jury from Belarus are absolute legends as well.
- Greece/Cyprus friendship is getting ridiculous. Deserved booing.
- Spain got a lot less points than I expected, both from jury and tele.
- All of Scandinavia did really well this year. Except for Darude.
- San Marino actually made it to the top 10 of the tele!!

Feels bittersweet to me. On one hand I'm very happy that the Netherlands won rather than something like Italy (which I found absolutely terrible). On the other hand, Norway had an absolutely amazing performance, and they got a deserved first place from the public. However, for some reason the jury didn't like it at all and only gave it 40 points, which is why it got 5th in the end.

Want it to be even a bit more bittersweet ? Jury ratings are based on final rehearsal performances and from what I heard Norway had technical difficulties during theirs and weren't allowed to redo it.

Personally I thought the song sounded a bit too similar to Finland's entry from last year. That said Cyprus really went two steps further and pretty much re-entered Fuego with different lyrics this year.

If only the Italians had a better stage show. They had the best song but the stage show was distracting and boring, such a shame.

I voted for Italy and Australia.

I really wonder when the people in germany take responsibility for our consistent bad performance in the ESC.

Also lol at the crowd in Tel Aviv, They got super triggered when the Icelanders showed the palestinian flag.

Apparantly during that new Madonna song they also briefly showed a palestinian flag, but I doubt anyone was paying attention at that point, as everyone was too shocked how much of an autotuned car wreck that new song was .. even "like a prayer" before that sounded like bad karaoke.

Fun fact it was playbacked

Australia is in Euro, but not countries like USA, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Argentina, Brazil or Canada? Why include a small country like Australia in Eurovision but not the bigger nations? Eurovision could become bigger and better. Why not call it World Vision and embrace nations around the world

Everyone with broadcasting stations in the EBU (european broadcasting union) network can join the eurovision songcontest (after years of negotiations ofcourse), which includes almost all the countries you listed. Australia got in because they really wanted to join, asia/americas want to do their own thing.

I think you have to be a “full member” of the EBU, the dark blue countries, or be in the Council of Europe. Australia was invited a couple years ago because it was the 60th anniversary of the Eurovision contest and they love it so much apparently. Since their participation was such a succes they’ve been invited to stay for a while
