  1. And last but not least…
    In the WiKipedia page of Denmark’s NF 2017
    it is written that the actual percentages:
    64% of Anja, 26% of Ida & 10% of Johanna
    indicate their shares of the TELEVOTE..(!)
    This must be NON true at all..

    Anja’s 64% is only plasmatic when her 50% came just by the 5 juries alone…

    Anja NO way would had won in the televoting alone
    & with even such big percentage of 64%!

    Over the 90% of the audience that went inside the Box Arena
    must were rooting & cheering for IDA to win instead…

  2. Even if IDA would earn 99% in the televoting alone
    (that would represent 990,000 single votes)
    she would still NOT win!
    (Her 99,% share would be converted to 49,5% with the 50/50)

    And Anja’s rest 1% in the televoting would still WIN!
    (with her share to be converted to 0,5% with the 50/50)
    (that her 1% share would possibly represent just only 10,000 votes…)

    ~ ANJA : 0,5% (televoting) + 50% (5/5 juries) = 50,5% ~ Winner!
    ~ IDA: 49,5% (televoting) + 0 % (0/5 juries) = 49,5% ~ NO Winner!

    So do you see how #RIGGED the Danish NF was?!
    All the votes from the danish people that were casted
    made NO impact at all to the final result of the winner that would go to Kiev!

  3. IDA actually won the televoting by landslide!!
    The Danes clearly wanted HER as winner!

    Here are the actual stats:

    ~ 1st) IDA – :O 52%! :O (26% with the 50/50)
    ( She even earned nearly the DOUBLE votes than Anja!! :O )
    ~ 2nd) ANJA – 28% (14% with 50/50)
    ~ 3rd) JOHANNA – 20% (10% with 50/50)

    **** The 5 juries had to only vote for 1 act each!
    And they all voted for ANJA!
    So she took the whole pie of their 50% share!!

    ~ 1st) ANJA – 100% (50% with 50/50)
    ~ 2nd) IDA – 0% (0% with 50/50)
    ~ 2nd) JOHANNA – 0% (0% with 50/50)

    ~ 1st) ANJA – 14% (televote) + 50% (juries) = 64%
    ~ 2nd) IDA – 26% (televote) + 0% (juries) = 26%
    ~ 3rd) JOHANNA – 10% (tel) + 0% (juries) = 10%

  4. Yay! 🇩🇰❤😊👍🏻
