    Don't get cocky. You need to get your Indie on and get posting graphs before that will happen.

    I do wonder if Sweden have become a victim of their own success, and viewers generally expect far better of them.

    That or they're just not serving up winners. Since Mans, they've been flying on autopilot for me. A woman would be nice and just a more varied sound.

    He’s half Belarusian I think, which would explain something. Also he basically entered a Belarusian entry

    Ooh that’s another parallel with 2010, a former winner coming back and getting a mid-table finish (Ireland)

    Haha I knew someone would drag me for it. It’s because I was using Excel to format it. It used the full decimal percentage so I had to clip it with the integer function, so 90.9 or whatever it was end up as 90. The ranking should be ok though
