This year, the Australian public vote differed significantly from the European vote. All weekend there were huge Eurovision parties in Melbourne, Sydney and the other major Australian cities.
Although Australia cannot vote in the actual Eurovision Song Contest, each year the public do televote to decide their winner and in 2011 there are some surprise results :-
  1. Ireland 8350
  2. Greece 7120
  3. Serbia 4429
  4. Bosnia & Herzegovina 4150
  5. Moldova 3397
  6. Hungary 2862
  7. Sweden 2521
  8. Denmark 2097
  9. United Kingdom 1339
  10. Ukraine 1338
  11. Finland 1308
  12. Romania 1205
  13. Iceland 1061
  14. Russia 982
  15. Italy 935
  16. Germany 922
  17. Estonia 820
  18. Slovenia 757
  19. France 576
  20. Austria 483
  21. Georgia 473
  22. Spain 456
  23. Switzerland 356
  24. Lithuania 262
  25. Azerbaijan 245
So, Europe's winner is Australia's least favourite song of all. Other marked differences in the voting patterns see the actual runner up Italy only in 15th place and Serbia faring much better with the Australian public than the European.
Ultimately, the Australian public decided that Jedward from Ireland was their favourite entry with a clear distance between first and second place.
