Azerbaijan: Vote rigging proven by a Lithuanian journalist!

Farid came second for Azerbaijan last night, with only Emmelie beating him, but this position wasn't because the song deserved it... more because the Azeri's brought votes.

More controversy coming from that side of the world, eh? It's not exactly shocking though as some countries have awarded them high marks year after year. Malta has "voted" for Azerbaijan loads of times over recent years. I've always thought there was a rat. A Lithuanian journalist recorded a meeting with persons offering just €20 to vote for a certain someone... It's all in Russian though. Will the EBU take action? Sadly I think that's very unlikely, look at the drama we had back in 2009... This could start more stuff emerging from countries such as Russia and Bulgaria - watch this space!

Here is the video.
