EUROVISION: JURIES PREFER SWEDEN, ITALY, AUSTRALIA AND BELGIUM, WHILE RUSSIA AND UKRAINE RULE THE TELEVOTE

Now that the new season has started it's worth remembering how the televoters and the juries vote before we go any further. Then again, every now and then comes someone like Lordi or Salvador Sobral and throws all the statistic and logic out of the window and there we are: a "surprise" winner.
Someone has had time and energy to check the stats and votes for the Top-50 televoting and Top-50 jury votes over the years and you can see them below.
The televote winner is Italy's Il Volo with Grande amore - however it's the only televoting success for Italy, while Russia places 7 of its entries in Top-50, followed by Ukraine (4), Greece (3) and Sweden (3). Turkey would be on top as well had they kept participating me thinks....
In jury votes it's a bit different story: Sweden leads with four presences followed by Italy, Belgium and Australia with three - or in other words: all Aussie entries. Portugal's Salvador Sobral and Amar pelos dois is the ultimate jury favorite.
