“In the analysis of the jury voting by the pan-European voting partner of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) after the second dress rehearsal of the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, certain incorrect voting patterns were identified in the results of six countries,” reads a statement on the Eurovision website.

After the error was discovered, a surrogate cumulative result was calculated for each of these countries in the second semi-final and final.

"The EBU takes any alleged attempt to manipulate voting in the Contest very seriously and has the right to withdraw such votes in accordance with the Official Voting Instructions, regardless of whether such votes may affect the results and/or outcome," the Broadcasting Union said in a statement. .

Earlier, the head of the Romanian delegation, Iuliana Marchuk, in a commentary to TVR, said that the Eurovision organizers had replaced the marks given to the members of the competition.

The winner of the international song contest "Eurovision-2022" was the Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra.
