STOCKHOLM, May 15. /TASS/. Eurovision-2016 organizers are happy with the dramatic end of the song contest, chief producer of the show Christer Bjorkman told TASS on Sunday.
"The end was such that I could not invent anything better! For example, like with Poland that had 7 points and then quickly climbed so high. Or sitting for half an hour in confidence that Australia will win and then this did not take place. Nothing could be better from the standpoint of drama, Bj·rkman said.
The new presentation of scores indeed clearer shows the difference in jury and viewers’ marks.
"What really matters is that jury scores and viewers’ scores are clearer. Obviously professionals assess absolutely different points. A viewer looks at the surface of performance that can be picturesque and beautiful but at the same time not always good in all respects. Hence the balance between jury and viewers’ score turns to be very good," Bjorkman said.
