It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! To round off Europe in a Day’s 5th birthday celebrations, here are the results of our first-ever Birthday Eurovision!
For the last 2 weeks, 29 songs representing countries featured in Europe in a Day have been competing for the votes of international juries. As well as the juries from the countries taking part, juries from the 9 Europe in a Day countries and territories that don’t take part at the actual Eurovision Song Contest also had their say – meaning for the first time ever, the Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Scotland, Transnistria, Wales and Vatican City will also be awarding their douze points! Although as of today England has joined the Europe in a Day family, they will not be awarding any points this year.
In addition to the scores of these 38 juries, the results of the public vote conducted HERE were added to the juries’ final marks as a televote – did the televote dethrone the choice of the juries? Let’s take a look and find out!
Good evening Europe, this is London calling!
For those of you who love to study the results in full and see whose points went where, here is the table of the full results, combining both the juries and the televote!
Ireland may have triumphed with the juries with the heart-rending ‘Hold Me Now’, but it was Spain’s beautiful aria, ‘Quédate Conmigo’ that topped the televote and won outright!
So a big congratulations to Spain for winning the first ever Europe in a Day Birthday Eurovision! Here’s the winner’s reprise!
A big thank you to all of our international juries and to everyone who contributed to the televote!
Do you agree with the result? Did your favourites do well?
Until next year in Madrid! 😉
