ESC 2017: SONGS THAT MADE IT TO EUROVISION THANKS TO JURY, NOT TELEVOTERS. INCLUDING PORTUGAL!

Salvador Sobral and his Amar pelos dois did not win the televote in Portugal. He did win the jury vote but the televoters put Viva la Diva's Nova gloria ahead of him. Somehow I think they wouldn't have had the same success. Not even close. Hooray for the juries who saw further this time! Where else the jury votes ruled over televoters wish (and usually got it right)?
In Georgia the televoters preferred Oto Nemsadze & Limbo's Dear God placing Tamara only second (and jury only 16th!) I doubt that would have done any better in Kyiv really...
Same story in Poland where Carmell with Faces was preferred by the televoters (but only 6th by the jury), and in Slovenia where BQL's Heart of gold won the televote but juries placed it low enough to keep it from winning. Maybe these both televote favorites would have done better? Maybe, maybe not.
Jury ruled also in Sweden, where televoters preferred Nano's Hold on, while eventual winner Robin was only 3rd. Nano was my favorite and I believe it would have finished the same way Robin did, but would have had a bit more love showed to him maybe? Albanian televoters preferred Yli Limani's Shiu placing Lindita only 3rd. I think he would have done a lot better in the end.....
In Belarus televoters placed Navi Band only 5th (!!!) but they won thanks to jury giving zero love to the televote winner PROvokatsyia and #mylove.  Who knows how that would have ended....
And then we have Spain. All is said about it but I don't think Mirela's Contigo would have reached any place above 20something either. Typical fan wank that bombs at the final.
Then we have Ukraine that ended with a tie and O. Torvald was chosen over televote winner Melvin and Wonder, and jury favorite Tayanna's I love you. Yes, O. Torvald finished second with both! And scored the worst result ever for Ukraine.
