Jury and televote split since 2016 - who favours who?



Since the new voting system came in during the 2016 contest, it's been evident which songs the juries favour and which songs the televote does.

Our own nation of Australia has been labelled the 'jury favourites' but how accurate is it? Let's look at the splits:

Jury votes (% of total votes received by the jury in finals)

1. Czech Republic - 100%

2. Israel - 91%

3. Malta - 90%

4. UK - 88%

5. Netherlands - 82%

5. Norway - 82%

5. Spain - 82%

8. Georgia - 77%

9. Australia - 72%

10. Greece - 62%

Televotes (% of total received by the televote in finals)

1. Poland - 90%

2. Romania - 79%

3. Germany - 76%

4. Russia - 74%

5. Moldova - 71%

6. Serbia - 70%

7. Croatia - 68%

7. Hungary - 68%

9. Ukraine - 61%

10. Belgium - 56%

So over two years of finals it can be hard to say any jury or televote favouring any nation in particularly. There just aren't enough years or numbers. However trends do emerge, nearly all the top 10 of jury votes are towards more 'western' nations while 'eastern' nations dominate the public vote. Is this a bias or because of the songs offered? Only more years and more voting will show this for sure.
