For the purposes of this chart I have given last place to the UK for 2008 using the EBUs own system for breaking ties.

poor Finland, Lithuania, Spain, Malta, Sweden! None deserved it last night, unlike Albania or Croatia who got their usual balkan help :talktothehand:

Nope it was all ours - because our highest mark was an 8 (from Ireland), Poland's was a 10 (also from Ireland) and Germany's was a 12 (thanks to them having a Bulgarian member it came from Bulgaria) :irked:

that rule in esc does not really apply. It only does to separate winners. Come on, both poland and germany were way worse than the uk last year!

It does apply.  EBU don't want any tied places....which is why we were officially 4th in 2002 despite having the same points as Estonia....and also why Spain are 24th this year despite having the same points as Lithuania (because Lithuania got points from more countries)

i remember a few years ago when they said it only applied for winners so that they wouldn't divide france / ireland 90 actually based on the simple fact that back then the rules were different. If we were to apply now the rules, we wouldn't get the exact same results. So it's rather sad they won't apply the rule for older years but would NOW. But if they want to..

I was disappointed with Engelbert Humperdinck's placing last Eurovision . Such a beautiful song at least on my opinion .

But one day the old lovers long for more
 Dreams and desires of another youth
And they leave their families, betray their friends
 They don't want advice about how to be happy
