A 'graphic error' caused comical confusion about the Eurosong results last night

Is nothing sacred?

SO LAST NIGHT, our Eurovision fate was decided. After a lot of squabbling, judgement and voting, it was time to calculate the final tally by adding up all the votes. But it wasn’t that easy, oh NO.

After taking a ‘jury’ from five counties á la actual Eurovision, it was time for the public vote. Gimme that envelope. OUR NERVES.

One problem, however. The Eurosong scoreboard couldn’t go to three digits, therefore had battling two top songs Eoghan Quigg and Kasey Smith in a draw at 99.

Oh the confusion.

Huh, wha, hu, where?

So there you have it, Kasey Smith will be representing us with the song Heartbeat. Woops and hollers etc.

Won’t somebody think of Eoin Quigg? Things aren’t so groovy anymore.

Irish lad Jamie Dornan was adorably awkward on Graham Norton last night>

Ireland picked a Eurosong, but the fight between judges was the real show>
