Denmark: Incorrect 12 Points To Ukraine

Dami Im should have received the Danish 12

The votes of the Danish juror Hilda Heick have been revealed to have been ranked the wrong way round.

The former singer admitted to the Danish press this morning that the rank she submitted was the wrong way round. This means her favourite entry was ranked at the bottom while the entry she meant to rank 26th ended up being ranked first. The rank means that in the final she put the following countries in the top positions:

  1. Georgia
  2. Ukraine
  3. Croatia
  4. Armenia
  5. Serbia
  6. Germany
  7. Austria
  8. Malta
  9. Cyprus
  10. Czech Republic

Instead her rank should have been:

  1. Australia
  2. The Netherlands
  3. Russia
  4. France
  5. Belgium
  6. Spain
  7. Sweden
  8. Israel
  9. Italy
  10. Poland

Her votes do affect the way that the Danish jury votes would have ended. This includes Ukraine no longer being given any points whatsoever and instead Australia receiving the 12 points:

  1. Australia – 12 points (Instead of previous 10 points)
  2. Netherlands – 10 points (Recieves 3 more points)
  3. Belgium – 8 points (No change)
  4. Sweden – 7 points (Recieves 3 more points)
  5. Bulgaria – 6 points (No change)
  6. Spain – 5 points (Recieves 4 more points)
  7. Israel – 4 points (Recieves 2 more points)
  8. Russia – 3 points (Recieves 3 more points)
  9. France – 2 points (Recieves 2 more points)
  10. Lithuania – 1 point (Receives 4 less points)

Ukraine now ends in 11th place having an average jury ranking of 10.2. The United Kingdom also receives no points at all. This affects the results of the overall results of the contest, the new results are:

  1. Ukraine – 522 points (Loses 12 points)
  2. Australia – 513 (Gains 2 points)
  3. Russia – 494 (Gains 3 points)
  4. Bulgaria – 307
  5. Sweden – 264 (Gains 3 points)
  6. France – 259 (Gains 2 points)
  7. Armenia – 249
  8. Poland – 229
  9. Lithuania – 196 (Loses 4 points)
  10. Belgium – 181
  11. The Netherlands – 156 (Gains 3 points)
  12. Malta – 153
  13. Austria – 151
  14. Israel – 137 (Gains 2 points)
  15. Latvia – 132
