9th Denmark – Home town result. Song not strong enough to threaten and, whilst they looked like waiters, they didn’t serve the optimal dish to the voters. Underdone.
8th Russia – Delegation feared the worst, but escaped with average placing of an average song, sung very badly.
7th Norway – This was going to win? – Never in a million years. Carl looked too pained and song too painfully for this to do anything special. Flattered to deceive.
6th Ukraine – Result the song deserved. Nothing overblown, just a very good pop song that connected all around.
