They won it by a fair margin, too.Knowing Norway won the public vote it makes it all the more unfortunate that they wanted to redo their song for the jury vote because of technical faults. Awkward.
I understand we don't really know what the juries saw, but based on the results I'd assume the Czech boys had one heck of a performance and, seemingly, a different song.So the juries are basically the electoral college of Eurovision?

I don't know if the technical issues were on their side or because of the local production. If it's the latter then it's especially unfortunate that this is what the juries were given to judge.
I feel mean for laughing so much at this, I didn’t mind the song personally but am stillI understand we don't really know what the juries saw, but based on the results I'd assume the Czech boys had one heck of a performance and, seemingly, a different song.
The jury business is silly, they all just voted for their closest or countries they had close relations too with for the most part.
Have you analysed the jury results in details or are you just repeating what the British media say about Eurovision when the UK does badly?
I enjoyed Norway as much as the next person, but in terms of musical composition I am glad the juries were there to give us the Netherlands win.
No I’m just watching now the judging part of the show I taped last night, it’s 8 am I’m in bed lol. I watched the full show last night before results an I liked Norway the best maybe because they were not boring like Netherlands, IMHO. I also liked Russia, Albania and Denmark, UK was not good
I guess I wasn’t really looking at it from best song, but best performance? But as this is a message board where we give our opinions, I shared mineThe Netherlands finished second in the televote so while you may have found them boring lots of people didn't. The standout from this year's voting overall was that opinions were very divided on which was the best song.

I bought it. Added it to my playlist, the whole album, then removed the songs I feel indifferent about and enjoy the select few, Norway included. A sacrifice, yes, which could have been avoided, but I believe Norway was robbed, so I felt like doing it was necessary.you don’t need to know sign language.
I was going to buy Norway’s song as a sign of support but it’s album-only on ITunes and I sure don’t want the others!
Don't jump on the plane now; as @TAHbKA noted, much of the nice places where the postcards were shot are now yellow instead of green - not as pretty...I just found the final a bit lackluster this year for some reason apart from couple of stand out acts. I thought the four hosts were mostly looking awkward trying to make jokes which consistently fell flat. I enjoyed the presentation clips the most with all the dancing, that was truly well done and made me want to jump in a plane and go visit all those places. Madonna surely didn't help, the build-up around her coming was unnecessary and her performance was so bad it killed the whole atmosphere.
