    I believe you meant 1944 > Stefania > Wild Dances 
     
    1944 is easily one of my favorite songs to come out of Eurovision.

    My issue was that I like the recorded version more than the live performance. It’s already been on my playlist for months. It’s the best outright, just not this evening.

    Ya, the low number of jury votes they got is quite shocking.

    One of the main thing about non-South-African African riders in general: they often lack any sort of situational awareness in terms of riding in a peloton, we've seen that for 10+ years now, especially since the emergence of the Eritreans.
     
    Which is not something they can be blamed for, by the way, since it's something you do really need to learn and you can't learn in relatively small races in Eritrea and such. It is improving, so that's good. And to be fair to Girmay: his team this Giro is just...not good, at all. They could have fairly easily made sure Demare wasn't even in the sprint yesterday, but other than going to the front for a few minutes in the long descent, they didn't do much. Then Girmay had to find his own way once again and lost way too much energy.
     
    In terms of positioning, it was drama, much like Van der Poel. He didn't even really get to sprinting because he was face-first in the wind with 700m to go already. Mass sprints are not his thing, and not because of the legs.

    After the Winter Olympics and a longer break, I'd up for a new season of my quiz in the near future.
    I wonder if there's some interest again.

    My Top before rehearsals was

    2nd -  Cyprus
    3rd -  Poland
    4th -  Montenegro
    5th -  Greece
    6th -  Moldova
    7th -  Austria

    I offer my congratulations to @Cobi on Spain's win and to @OlympicIRL, @Cinnamon Bun and @Quasit on their medals. 
     
    I want to thank everyone who voted for Greece, I'm glad you liked our song.
     
    Also, thank you to our teammates in Gyor Rivers who helped us earn a 4th place in the team event. We were close to a medal there, but 4th place is a great result.
     
    And of course, a huge thank thank you to @Vektor who hosted a great contest throughout.
     
     
    This is how I voted.
     
    I can say I voted for all top three songs, but as I was the only one in our jury who voted for Spain and Ireland, my points were not enough for these songs to receive any points from Greece. 
     
    Great Britain got our 12 points by earning a total of 21 points, 7 per jury member and that's despite @Makedonas didn't give any points. 9 points, 3 per jury member were needed for a 12th place finish.  
     
    1st   12 pts   New Zealand  2nd   11 pts   Great Britain  3rd   10 pts   France  4th   9 pts   Czech Republic  5th   8 pts   Ireland  6th   7 pts   Poland  7th   6 pts   Germany  8th   5 pts   Spain  9th   4 pts   Sweden  10th   3 pts   Denmark  11th   2 pts   Italy  12th   1 pts   Brazil    Res1   Malta  Res2   Croatia  Res3   Romania

    Hey beautiful people, i am very disappointed, that i had to miss the contest, but something unexpected came up this past week. And it was another fantastic and enjoyable contest by the looks of things.   Spain with a commanding win to my biggest pleasure, as it's probably the country to which i have given the most points in all of my participations. There is always something to their songs, that resonates with my taste.   Well deserved win for @Cobi and very much looking forward to his hosting next time. 
     
    Also, big applauses for @Vektor for his tireless work these past few months, from stepping up hosting, to organizing and executing the contest perfectly.   
     
    Great effort from my team members @OlympicIRL @Griff88 and @Illya on getting a bronze medal.  Especially after stumbling in the first round, that was some fight through the repechage rounds! The historians will speak on this, but i think this may be the first time i get a medal in the music contests 
     
    And finally, but not least, big Thank You to everyone who enjoyed and/or voted for the BG song. This time more people than usual and it's nice to be on the left side of the table for a change.  Virtual bears and cookies for all
