So it turns out there was a massive mistake in the results for the Eurovision Song Contest.

The Belarus jury was dismissed after they revealed their results to a publication.

Their reveal of their votes following the first semi-final is against Eurovision rules.

A Eurovision spokesperson said: ‘In order to comply with the Contest’s voting regulations, the EBU worked with its voting partner digame to create a substitute aggregated result (calculated based on the results of other countries with similar voting records), which was approved by voting monitor Ernst & Young, to determine the Belarusian jury votes for the Grand Final.

‘The EBU can confirm, following standard review practices, we have discovered that due to a human error an incorrect aggregated result was used. This had no impact on the calculation of points derived from televoting across the 41 participating countries and the overall winner and Top 4 songs of the Contest remain unchanged.’

However, some points have changed.

Viewers favorites, Norway, is now in sixth place.

Sweden takes their fifth place spot, meaning this is the seventh time they have reached the top five in the past decade.

The UK has also now lost points, meaning they finished with five less points and remain in last place.

The Netherlands kept onto the winning place.

A Eurovision spokesperson added: ‘The EBU and its partners digame and Ernst & Young deeply regret that this error was not identified earlier and will review the processes and controls in place to prevent this from happening again.’
