An oustanding fact comparing the split results is that concerning  Norway, which even though it won both the second semi-final and the Grand Final in televoting the national juries evaluated the entry and left it out of the Top 10 in the semi final show. Another remarkable figure is the score Moldova achieved in the Jury voting, placing it 8th while the 13th place in televoting left the country just 9 points away from the qualification zone.
