Incidents Edit

Dutch draw complaint Edit

Following the results of the contest, AVROTROS argued that Netherlands did not achieve its full potential score due to Germany performing afterwards with the same song title. They stated that BBC was "unfair" to draw two songs with the same title after each other, and that Netherlands would have placed at least seventh (seeing the 1 point difference). BBC later stated that "all songs were drawn randomly with no bias towards countries," and that it was a systematical coincidence. As a result of no action done, AVROTROS announced its withdrawal from the competition later stating that "it was not fair."
