    Regardless of her performance and result, still doesn’t change the fact that there are some dubious practices going on with some countries. As usual, it will all be swept under the carpet.

    Agree with Fashionelle, and i don’t believe that ANYONE in the UK thought she’d win.
    Even with a different, younger singer the result wouldn’t have been any different, the song just wasn’t good enough and has practically bombed in the UK charts

    Or it was because she was actually pretty bad. At some point maybe she was a decent singer, but with age your voice fades. There were many notes which she couldn’t reach in the song and her voice just isn’t what it used to be. Though I agree that Eurovision is highly political, there have been recent times when people with actual good songs won, such as Alexander Rybak. And even if Axerbaijan wasn’t supposed to give Russia the 10 points they promised, I’m quite sure Bonnie Tyler wouldn’t receive a higher ranking because of it.
