Well it's the question the great unwashed will be asking. How did Tix win the Norwegian MGP? Along with several other vexing questions, so just what did happen over this Super Saturday weekend?
The simple answer is "Tix scored more televotes" ... but it's a touch more complex than that (though not that much more). A real life star scored more votes, 100,000 more, than a star that Eurovision fans think should have own ... because they've heard of him.
Anyway, here it is, wings and all...
In what passed for a National final on Spanish TV, (reports say less than a million viewers bothered to watch), Blas Canto gets to sing Voy a Quedarme.
In an altogether different type of National Final (ie a brilliant one), there was no doubt which song the Finnish public wanted. Hard to argue when 54.3% of the televotes and the jury goes for you.
No videos allowed, of course, so enjoy a MF Classic
