Votes of the German jury revealed

Ten days after the final of the Eurovision Song Contest the results of the German jury were revealed. Germany was allowed to vote in the second semifinal. Would there be a big difference between the jury votes and the overall German votes that were presented by last year’s host Anke Engelke?

This is the result of the German jury (see in brackets the country that actually received the points in the combined voting):

12 Sweden (Sweden)

10 Estonia (Serbia)

8 Iceland (Turkey)

7 Denmark (Russia)

6 Albania (Albania)

5 Serbia (Denmark)

4 Bosnia & Hercegovina (Estonia)

3 Spain (Iceland)

2 Italy (Italy)

1 Ireland (Greece)

And this is the result of the second semifinal:

12 Sweden (Sweden)

10 Estonia (Serbia)

8 Slovenia (Netherlands)

7 Serbia (Estonia)

6 Netherlands (Turkey)

5 Bosnia & Hercegovina (Bosnia & Hercegovina)

4 Slovakia (Slovenia)

3 Croatia (Portugal)

2 Malta (Bulgaria)

1 Portugal (Croatia)

This year the German jury consisted of the comedian and last year’s host Anke Engelke, the German singers Tim Bendzko, Mieze Katz (band MIA) and Ben and the TV host Sabine Heinrich who presented the German national finals in 2010 and 2011.

The results show that Sweden was popular both with the jury and the televoters. In the final the jury prefered the ballads like Estonia, Iceland, Albania and Bosnia-Hercegovina while the public voted for Turkey, Russia and Greece, a probable sign of diaspora votes.
