Eurovision Song Contest 2011

THANK YOU GERMANY! CONGRATULATIONS AZERBAIJAN!

 

 

With 221 points, Azerbaijan wins an exciting Contest Final in Düsseldorf with the melodic and haunting 'RUNNING SCARED'. The UK's BLUE finished a credible 11th place with a perfect score of 100. Ireland's Jedward came 8th with 119. Italy's much-anticipated return to Eurovision was rewarded with 2nd place for the jazz number by Raphael Gualazzi.

 

Azerbaijan had placed 3rd in the SECHUK OPEN POLL and 5th in the SECHUK JURY POLL . Both polls correctly identified 5 of the 10 qualifiers from Semi Final 1 and 7 from Semi Final 2. Azerbaijan was a qualifier for both jury votes. The SECHUK OPEN POLL positioned 3 countries correctly, but the SECHUK JURY POLL  predicted none. Check the links for opinions and scores.

 

Pictures from the event will be available here very soon.

Check the updated Eurovision History table here.

 

So Eurovision heads east for 2012 to the land of fire.. and the city of BAKU on the Caspian Sea - the further east that the Contest has ever been!

 

Azərbaycan 2012

 

No doubt, details, information and rumours will start soon. Its certain that Azerbaijan will want to impress the World with the best Eurovision yet. Let's hope that the participating countries start to prepare for that and develop exciting national selections for Eurovision 2012.
