◄2 Eurovision Heart 4►

After Italy has last won in Eurovision 1990, RAI is very satisfied with winning the contest and disses Switzerland. Shortly, SRF, Swiss broadcaster states RAI should lose their ability to host the contest due to it's unfair treatment to other contestants. RAI immediately stated it was just a joke. SRF does not forgive RAI and Italy. ECU responded saying "It was unfortunate to have a tie for the winner and runnerup. We hope it doesn't happen again, but Italy won as was higher in the scoreboard system. Two winners would not be a good idea and as a result we are sorry for Switzerland". SRF has threatened to withdraw from the contest due to being "corrupt" and having "unsuitable" hosts for the show. RAI has responded and said it would be unfortunate to lose a great country. No one has said anything else afterwards.

Withdrawals Edit

  • Flag of the Czech Republic Czech Republic - Tie breaker + host protest. CT has encouraged other neighbors to not participate, but participate in the protest.
  • Flag of Georgia Georgia - Null protest.
  • Flag of Romania Romania - Null protest.
  • Flag of Macedonia Macedonia - Despite getting in the left side of the scoreboard, Macedonian broadcaster has decided to participate in the protest.
  • Flag of Montenegro Montenegro - RTCG, who did not participate in the protest was against it, however another Montenegrin broadcaster joined it. The withdrawal reason was in fact not a protest. Montenegrin broadcaster was not sure if enough funds were allocated so delayed participation confirmation. By the time the broadcaster allocated enough, there was no more "room" to participate in the contest. RTCG will be returning in the 4th edition.

Swiss-Czech Protest Members Edit

For more information go to Czech Protest Contest. Originally just a group, "Czech Protest" has turned into a contest. The Czech broadcaster has encouraged all the countries for withdrawing, but Hungary has declined and leaking the information to the ECU. This has not stopped anyone from withdrawing. The CCU has not stated anything about the protest, except "Montenegro" should be treated fairly in the contest. CT says that the CCU "are afraid of the Czech Republic".

Orignal country contest cancellation Edit

The CCU, have finally been able to speak out regarding their frustration over it:

GPB, which we have to thank for calling it the end of the contest, is just amazing! Everyone who gets bad results, we're sorry, but is there anything we can do about it? We're not going to rig the voting for your pleasures. UK just announced their withdrawal, what... We can't be seeing this.. We have decided that a big announcement will be made!
