How Eastern European immigration is changing the Eurovision Song Contest

Results of Ireland televote:
  • 1st place (12 points) - Latvia;
  • 2nd place (10 points) - Poland.
Overall, Latvia did OK this year, getting points from 15 different countries, most of which had no obvious connection to us. But Ireland was the only 1st place vote that we got and I'm sure Latvian-Irish had a substantial role in that.
