Well, I have been playing around with the figures following Sebia's victory at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, and they are interesting.

The Top 10 with an East-West split are:

  1. Serbia - 47.0% votes from west
  2. Hungary - 54.5%
  3. Turkey 60.9%
  4. Belarus - 33.5%
  5. Latvia - 56.5%
  6. Bulgaria 58.9%
  7. Slovenia - 36.4%
  8. Georgia - 39%
  9. FYR Macedonia - 22%
  10. Moldova 44%

These figures exclude the traditional eastern countries but include countries traditionally classed as western by Eurovision tradition - Greece, Cyprus and Israel.

Six out of ten show that an overwhelming majority for the west. Put simply, that's not enough to cry foul.
