Geographical bias? – Belgrade Eurovision 2008

esc2008logo-RESIZE-s925-s450-fit

I’ve updated my task from last year for Belgrade 2008 (Word 200 doc kb). I’m going to use the map of voting patterns from 2007 as a starter. There was also an interesting piece on the B.B.C. about the influence of population demographics on voting.

I thought the voting has a bit more open this year… but the songs weren’t as good. My personal favourite was Iceland. Still can’t believe that Andy received less points than Spain… pure madness.

    Time for the UK to get its act together and put out a song and performers in Moscow to get at least into the top 5.
    The main factors for our lack of success over the last 10 years are our poor songs and second rate performers.
    How can you expect a person who did not win XFactor to win Eurovision – Wake up UK.
