Norwegian fans voted overwhelming for Poland's buxom milkmaids to win the Eurovision song contest on Saturday, figures released on Sunday have revealed.
But the country's five jurors disagreed, leaving the act with just two points from Norway.  
 
The cheeky "We Are Slavic", by Donatan & Cleo, which featured heavily breasted milkmaids rhythmically churning butter and washing clothes on stage,  was also the surprise viewers' number one choice in the UK, Ireland and Ukraine. 
 
It would have come fifth overall rather than 14th, if only viewers' votes had counted.
