Spoilers: A Eurovision 2019 final points miscalculation has given The Netherlands more points!

The final counting for the Eurovision songfestival 2019 had errors in it, and now there’s a new list of rankings. Spoilers: The Netherlands got even more points!

The win for the Netherlands at the competition was special because the country hadn’t bagged a victory since 1975. There were celebrations everywhere and we were ecstatic too. After this error in counting was found out, we got to know that Duncan Laurence had got 6 points more, making him the undoubted winner at 498 points.

Want to rewatch it? We thought you would 😉

Some countries, on the other hand, were not quite so lucky. Though the top four remains the same, the ranking changed for other countries. Where Norway was originally 5th, has finished 6th now. Sweden is in the 5th position now. Germany (25), Estonia (20) and Serbia (18) are now one ranking lower. But Cyprus (13) and Malta (14) had a higher ranking by two places.
