Split results of Eurovision 2013 revealed

Split results of Eurovision 2013 revealed
Opening of the Grand Final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest
Geneva, Switzerland -

Today, the EBU releases individual combined rankings of the televoting and jury voting of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. This year's winner Denmark wasn't only ranked highest in the combined result of 50% televoting and 50% jury voting, but was also ranked highest by televoters and juries individually.

This year, instead of just collecting the top-10 from the televoting and the jury voting and combine those on a 50/50 basis per country to come to a national result, the EBU asked juries to rank all participating songs.

This allows to combine the ranking of all songs, instead of just the top-10 of the televoting and jury voting, and giving more weight to different rankings outside of the top-10.

For example, under the previous system, a song ranked 11th by the jury had the same score as a song ranked 24th by the jury - both received zero points from the jury. Under the new system, the lower the rank outside of a jury's or televoters' top-10, the bigger the impact. Taking into consideration the ranking of all songs, and not just the top-10, makes the voting in the Eurovision Song Contest more fair.

The results

The countries are ranked based on their scoreboard result (points). From the Semi-Finals, the top-10 qualified for the Grand Final. The last two columns reflect the average jury rank and the average televoting rank of all countries voting in that particular show.

The total rankings are hypothetical and only show what had happened if only televoters or only professional juries had voted across Europe.

As combined rankings of televoting and jury voting result in a top-10 per country, and not on an international level, the combined rankings do not necessarily reflect the outcome on the scoreboard.

For example; Ireland has an average jury rank of 16,21 and an average televoting rank of 14,62 in the Grand Final, but only made it into the top-10 in three countries. Consequently, Ireland finished 26th in the Grand Final - lower than twelve countries ranked higher by televoters and three countries ranked higher by juries, who all received more points by ending up in the top-10 in individual countries.

Split ranking per country

To protect the fairness of the voting, the EBU does not release the split ranking of televoting and jury per country. Publishing these numbers would explicitly highlight if countries don't meet the televoting threshold – the minimum number of televotes needed to become a statistically valid result - is and where thus only the jury voting was regarded valid. Explicitly highlighting these countries could lead to unwanted disproportionate influence on the televoting in these countries in future years to come.
