Hungary got 8 points from Estonia and 4 from Romania and San Marino. Finland didn't give any.

Montenegro -> 12 to Serbia, Serbia -> 12 to Montenegro. That's a nice friendship.

Hey, Finland was busy boycotting Russia with 8 points, you know. Cut us some slack!

But more seriously, Finland usually only gives points to Hungary when we like its song a lot -- so far we've given Hungary 12, 0, 0, 10, 12, 0, 10, 5, and 0 points over the years. :)

So if there had been no jury, only the popular vote, then Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (Finland's punk entry) would have gone through to the final.

I'm surprised it was that way around. I can understand the popular vote not liking punk, but I would have thought the jury would have been more kindly towards it, and judged it on its genre's merits. Because as a punk song, it really is pretty good. It's got a clear opinion and the opinion feels true. With punk, that is pretty much all that matters. The playing or singing doesn't have to be, almost isn't supposed to be, beautiful in the sense of other music genres.

Well, just musing. It would be interesting to see if different countries' jurys had a different take on it.
