I was pleasantly surprised, considering the media's been framing the ESC as this clash of values, and implying the East is inherently backwards and homophobic. She got votes from nearly every country.
That really is interesting. You know what's even more interesting? The fact that most Eastern countries' televoters placed Austria in the top 5, while the juries ranked them much lower. Take for example Belarus or Armenia or Poland.
And don't forget Russia. Austria was third among televoters there.
I'm so glad with the results for the Netherlands, even though in the middle of the voting, the electricity in my neighbourhood went out, and I couldn't watch remaining part of the voting.
My other favourite was definitely Norway, such a beautiful song.
