Eurovision and Ethnic Minorities

I watched Eurovision last night. Two entries were so funny I cried. I'd heard beforehand the theory that voting was determined largely by ethnic miniorities voting for their home countries. Russia won, and their 12 points were from Israel, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine and Armenia. There could be something in that...

Germany were really really bad - four women who couldn't sing in tune, which became painfully obvious when they tried singing together. And they got their points from Switzerland and Bulgaria.
