     It is good, that the Eurovision is so popular in Germany. But figures from Russia cause despondency. Especially if to take into account, that Russia considerably outstrips other countries by quantity of the population. By the way, there are 65 thousand inhabitants that lives in Andorra only, it is less than in any average small town near Moscow, and there is registered 3 thousand voices from Andorra! Or, for example, only 753 thousand inhabitants lives on Cyprus, and 117 751 persons has voted on island. At least it is silly to speak that the victory on the Eurovision is national idea for Russia after such figures (in fact 96 955 is about 0, 04 % of population of the country). And I spoke concerning that was a little voting in Belarus during elections of the participant of  Contest…

    The press-conference of EBU

     Yesterday, on May, 13  EBU  has held the press conference devoted to voting during the Qualifying Round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004. It was been spoken at the conference about the future voting during the Grand-Final of the Contest  and about some other problems also.

     The basic attention on conference has been given to questions of  quality of  sound during performances of  participants, to questions of system of  televoting, to problems of  voting at Monaco and Croatia due to which distribution of points has been exchanged, and also to a question of hosting of  Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2004. There was supervisor Svante Stockelius among representatives of  EBU.

Svante Stockselius, EBU-Supervisor     Concerning bad quality of a sound during performances of  participants (it was marked by both actors and spectators), representatives of  EBU  have told, that they have already established the reason of it, have warned organizers of  the Contest, TRT, and they hope, that all problems will be eliminated till evening of Saturday.

     According to  EBU, at present time the system of  televoting is perfect enough. It provides a full transparency during voting procedure. Problems not in system and not in the company which support this system, but in the concrete countries. During voting procedure there is a period of time - 6 minutes - during which are carried out gathering, sorting and calculation of voices. After that results are deduced on scoreboard and then disclosed officially. When results of  voting from Monaco appeared, according to these results all 22 countries have received zero points as though anybody in the country has not used system of  televoting. Representatives of  EBU have demanded from Monaco to repeat check of results. Monaco has confirmed: any person did not vote. As time drew in, and also the repeated confirmation of these results has been received the  EBU accepted these results. Voting procedure has been passed normally in Croatia but it has turned out, that many croatian people have managed to vote for the own country (it is forbidden by  Rules of the Eurovision) . Usually in similar cases such voices are simply reject. For unknown reasons the system of voting in Croatia could not make it and as a result Croatia has granted 4 points to itself.

     Representatives of  EBU have declared, that during voting in the Grand-Final  they will observe more steadfastly of  these two countries. Monaco and Croatia have already found sources of problems. Besides it Monaco will promulgate the full report about this incident.

     Also during the press-conference the problem of hosting this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2004 has been mentioned. Problem is that British company ITV (it was responsible for hosting of  the Contest at Manchester), has refused the obligations. The new place of hosting is not named yet.

     According to  EBU, results of voting at the Qualifying Round which were declared earlier, inexact. The list of the countries which will participate at the Grand-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, has remained former, but points received by other countries, have changed:

11-12      Israel57

    Results of the Qualifying Round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004

     The Qualifying Round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 was ended. The following 10 countries will participate at Grand-Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004:

      Serbia & Montenegro

     The others 12 countries have not reached the Grand-Final of the Contest and have occupied places from 11 to 22 at the Qualifying Round. These countries:

11      Estonia65
12      Israel57
13      Denmark56
14      Finland45
15      Portugal37
16      Lithuania26
17      Latvia21
18      Andorra12
19      Slovenia11
20-21      Belarus10
20-21      Monaco10
22      Switzerland0

     It is really a pity to me, that Israel, Finland, Latvia and Belarus have not reached the Grand-Final. In my opinion, these countries had very good songs. But Malta has reached the Grand-Final. Their song very much is pleasant to me also.

    Order of a voting procedure at the Qualifying Round

    On May, 12  EBU  has promulgated the order of a voting procedure at the Qualifying Round.

     Inhabitants of  33 countries - participants of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 could vote. Inhabitants of the countries, which refused to broadcast the Qualifying Round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 (Poland, France and Russia) were not supposed to voting. It was possible to vote no more than 20 times from one telephone number (only in those countries where was possible to take into account a maximum quantity of  bells from one phone line). It was possible to vote by SMS also.

     Names of the countries which have reached the Grand-Final of  the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 have been sealed in envelopes. The order of opening of envelopes was casual. The country, which name was in the first opened envelope, takes the first free position in the list of performances in the Grand-Final, etc. Completely results of  the Qualifying Round of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 will be declared on Sunday.
