Why Azerbaijan? Why? As Shaytan said, boring. One wonders about the juries, how they came to vote for this.
A speculation I've heard on another forum is that the juries were trying to set up a battle with Italy, Ukraine and Sweden for the last few votes (it would make sense in Italy's case, because I can't see how people voted for it) but Azerbaijan won the televote by a large margin and scuppered their plans.

If we get the split results, we'll be able to see better how the contest went.

No offense, everyone, but I'm struggling to see how anyone could not see Running Scared as winning material. As soon as I heard it for the first time I said to myself "That should win," and now it actually has.
