If only the professional juries had voted in the Grand Final of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, this would have been the outcome:
Svante Stockselius, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of the EBU, said to Eurovision.tv: "We believe it was the right time to introduce this new voting system, and it is fantastic to see that both televoters as well as professional juries massively backed the same contestant. Some finished higher because of support from the juries, others finished higher because of support from the televoters across Europe. It also made the presentation of the points less predictable, despite the overwhelming support for Alexander Rybak's entry."
All jury members were professionally involved with the music industry and signed declarations that stated they would vote independently.
