#EurovisionAgain : Sertab remains victorious in the voting for the 2003 edition
#Eurovision Again has given the chance to all Eurovision fans to watch once again past editions of the Eurovision Song Contests and feel the joy and excitement of the contest without any interruptions. Saturday night the 2003 edition hit the screens once again, on the ESC Youtube Channel followed by an online voting that crowned Sertab winner of that year's edition.
The first to launch such initiative, was a group of fans that uploaded past events, while EBU followed through its official Eurovision Youtube Channel. Once the competing part of the contest is over, the audience has the chance to cast its votes and make up a new result for each edition.
Just a week after the special show ‘Europe Shine A Light’ , thousands fans had the chance to watch the 2003 edition online on the official ESC Youtube channel. 17 years after that contest that had taken place in Riga, Latvia, the audience crowned once again winner Sertab and her entry "Everyway that i can". The Turkish superstar interacted to the result and through a post on Twitter thanked the fans for confirming her victory.
Apart from Turkey that maitained its first placing we saw changes in the rest top 3 placings. Spain with Beth and her entry "Dime" displacing Urban Trad from Belgium that were the actual 2nd runner-ups that year. Third came Iceland with Birgitta and her entry "Open your heart" instead of Russia's Tatu .
Here is how the overall scoreboard looked like after last night’s #Eurovisionagain:
