Important Eurovision research

“Dr Bruine de Bruin, a researcher in social and division sciences, analysed results from the…Eurovision Song Contests between 1957 and 2003.”

“…on average, the last competitor to appear in the Eurovision Song Contest was more than twice as likely to win as the one who went on first. The first candidate had only a six per cent chance of winning, compared with a 13 per cent chance for the final contestant.”

No. I’m not going to give you any links to the Eurovision site or make any comment about Jordan. That would only encourage you.
