Where do you get your information?
- Bookies' favourites were chosen based on a list of odds as found on oddschecker.com/tv/eurovision/winner.
- All genres were decided by Jade, based purely on musical intuition and should not be taken too seriously.
- Hair colour and facial hair information was determined from official photos and videos. We, obviously, can't guarantee that this information will still be accurate on the big night.
- Population statistics come from World Bank figures for 2012, updates are from 2013, as shown on Google.
- Region is from UN Geoscheme. Previous wins - Wikipedia.
- Qualifying history - Wikipedia (each country has a 'X in Eurovision' page).
- Qualifying chance - authors own.
- Semifinal, Name, Selection process, Returning artist, age, gender, song, amount of english in lyrics - eurovision.tv & Wikipedia (Artist pages and each country also has an X in Eurovision 2016 page)

How was eurovisionr made?
eurovisionr was developed and designed by James Acres over a few evenings in April.
The AngularJS frontend requests data from a Node.js powered backend API which connects to a MongoDB database and returns JSON.
Thanks go to several libraries which assisted with the rapid development of a mobile friendly responsive web application.
