China’s Vote for ESC 2015: Sweden Wins By Small Margin

18 May

China’s vote for ESC 2015 ended today with a Swedish win by a margin of 14 points over Italy. 109 votes from Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan were casted via our official Sina Weibo account as well as Baidu Postbar, which increased greatly compared to last year’s 60 due to significant improvement of popularity of not only the ESC itself but also our weibo account in China.

This year participants of the voting went on giving their votes in a 1-8, 10 and 12 ESC classical mode.

This year we made voting deadline later than last year and allowed voting modification until last minute of deadline to make the voting result more objective and more affected by the participants’ rehearsal performance. The most positively affected countries through rehearsal are Norway, Georgia, Sweden, Albania and Azerbaijan, each gained more than 10 extra points with the modification of some votes. The most negatively affected country after rehearsal is Portugal, which lost 5 points and was placed last. Countries like Israel, Germany etc. all lost some points after rehearsal, although Germany was still placed 5th without any change.
