Eurovision 2010: some more good news

The official website of the Eurovision Song Contest reports today that following the success of the reintroduction of professional juries in the 2009 final, the 50-50 jury/televoting split will also be used in next year's semi-finals.

I think this is extremely good news as the jury vote brought some long-overdue integrity to a contest which (for me) was on its last legs thanks to the partisan neighbour-voting which was turning the contest from a once enjoyable entertainment show into a complete sham.

This news might also inspire a few countries to send some better entries too, as there's now a possibility that where previously, they might not have bothered as they were probably never going to make the's hoping that will all change now.
