Voting Statistics 1975 - 2015
votes 1975 - 2015,
This page is now closed, because in 2016 a new voting system was introduced.
Between 1975 to 2015 the voting system of 12, 10, 8 etc to 1 point was used.
As the number of countries wishing to participate grew, 1993 and 1996 saw elimination rounds (see 1993 and 1996).
The losing countries could NOT vote in the final.
2004 this rule changed with the introduction of televised semi-finals.
Originally the 'Big Five' (Germany, France, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy) plus the Top Ten of the previous year were pre-qualified for the final.
In 2008 the number of pre-qualified countries was reduced to six, i.e. the Big Five plus the host country.
The Big Five were always qualified for the final and would never have to take part in the semi finals.
In the final, all countries, including the losing semi-finalists, could vote.

NORWAY and SWEDEN are the only countries with points from every other country! That's very impressive.
