Eurovision Song Contest 2005, Kyiv, Ukraine (Final)
« on: June 16, 2007, 03:46:13 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2005, KYIV, UKRAINE (FINAL)


The Final took place 2 days after the semi-final.  Once again the 10 qualifiers joined the Big 4 and the 10 highest scorers from the previous year.  Helena Paparizou returned for Greece, this time without the other half of Antique.  Chiara returned for Malta 7 years to improve her position by 1 place.  Constantinos Christoforiou returned for the last of his 3 appearances for Cyprus.  The Ukrainian entry caused some controversy, being added straight into the national final without going through the qualification process.  The biggest talking point, however, was the fact that the countries that finished in the bottom 4 positions were the so-called Big 4 nations.  The Big 4 have a guaranteed place in the final every year but with poor performance such as this their guaranteed place does not seem justified.  The voting was fairly close early on with the lead changing hands regularly.  Once Greece finally took the lead they didn't relinquish it.  31 years after their debut it was the longest wait for a first win so far - beating Belgiums 30 year wait by 1 year.
