The annual Eurovision Song Contest was held in Malmö (Sweden), 18 May 2013. It ended with the victory of Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest.

The final tally for each country is a 50/50 combination of the telephone votes and the votes of a national jury.

However, the 10 points that Azerbaijan gave to Russia disappeared, causing total mayhem in Baku and anger in Moscow (which gave 12 points to Azerbaijan).

Sergey Lavrov, Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs, asked Baku to shed light on the matter. Azerbaijan is a former Soviet republic with close ties to the United States and Israel.
