Denmark – Chanée and N’evergreen achieved the best result in years for the Scandinavian country just a month ago in Oslo. Their Eurovision-popsong “In a moment like this” got points from a lot of European countries and thus reached 4th place behind Germany, Turkey and Romania.Was the Scandinavian block at work again? And who also voted for Denmark? Find out:
Usually, when a Scandinavian country reaches the top 5 every single one of the Northern nations will have given it top points (most of the time 12). Not so this time: The only 12 points from the North for Denmark came from their buddies in Iceland. Norway and Sweden both liked Germany and Romania better and only gave Denmark 8 points. Finland only had meager 3 points for Chanée and N’evergreen.
But who helped Denmark achieve the 4th place then? It’s a diverse collection of countries: Ireland gave Denmark their 12 points, as well as Poland, Romania and Slovenia.
These last two are quite interesting. While Romania gave 12 point non of their neighbours gave Denmark a single point. Also Slovenia’s twelve are the only high points it got from Ex-Yugoslavian countries. N’evergreen is supposed to be popular in Eastern Europe, so that might be an explanation. Furthermore, Denmark got 10 points from Latvia and 8 from Malta.
Germany was rather unthankful. They got 12 points to Denmark, but didn’T return the favor at all: Nill points from Germany.
In the Caucasus and on the Iberian peninsula, “In a moment like this” was rather popular getting 4 or 5 points from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Spain and Portugal.
This shows that Denmark did not have to rely on one region in particular for its points, which is an indicator of a good placing. For a win you need to get points from almost all the countries though and Denmark did not. The 4th place should make the Danish proud tough!
