Unlike the first semifinal, the old and new system don’t have the same qualifiers, as Malta takes over Azerbaijan thanks to its 6th place from the jury and being only 5pts behind Azerbaijan in televote. Azerbaijan was therefore 11th in televote and 9th in juries, which in the current system means it would homogeneously gets 10th overtaking the more divise Malta (6th and 12th).
More surprisingly, the juries and televote have been way more disagreeing in this semifinal. And it’s not at all what you’d expect: Czech Republic was qualified… with televote! And besides Malta, juries also pushed Ireland, which they had 5th. The one that they disagreed completely on is Poland, whose story but also great draw got televote’s 4th place above fan favorite Norway and juries 16th place! While Poland remains 8th in both old and new system with this, the old system has Poland 8pts higher thanks to the big televote support. Also, here’s food for your thoughts: the last to perform finished 4th in both semis and won the final. So the draw doesn’t matter? When you look how Georgia and Poland actually got in the final, one can wonder…
Last, juries were more split, with three songs tied with 84pts for instance, when televote had its entire top 7 above 95pts! And therefore, this difference mathematically brings some very interesting results: Slovenia is 7th in both jury and televote, Cyprus is 8th in both jury and televote and in the end Slovenia is 5th overall and Cyprus is 6th… Proving that the system of 50/50 really pushes out songs that divide. Which might not be that good a thing. Also, the old and new system have reverse results between Israel and Latvia, the televote and jury favorites behind Sweden repectively. The big televote support for Israel should once and for all put an end to the political talk there. It was obviously a song for televote to like, and juries didn’t kill it much and it got top 3 here and top 10 in the final. On the other hand, Portugal did better than we all feared and it’s nice but it should have been one before last in televote if it weren’t for Switzerland’s 12 points, probably from diaspora sadly…
