Introduction

The Eurovision song contest - most people on this continent know about it and either love it, hate it or love to hate it. It was started by the EBU in 1956, and ever since has been a regular fixture of EBU member broadcasters. The contest is well known for a number of things, including some very memorable songs (for a variety of reasons), some very forgettable songs, political voting and at times outrageous costumes and performances.

Changes are being suggested and sometimes implemented to try to reduce the political voting which has caused some to suggest that the contest is losing its focus on songs. Recent changes seem to have in general worked: whilst there are still clearly predictable voting patterns for some countries, the good songs to seem to end up towards the top of the voting table.

However, to end all confusion, I've decided to set this up to point out how the entrants should have been scored, including the scores for the various categories on the BBC official scorecard, along with what actually happened (marked as "official").
