Incidents

Results show

During the results show in the grand final, right after Kalos Republic voted, and just before Rose was about to vote, the scoreboard managed to reset, resulting in all countries starting over at 0 points. This was fixed after a short while, by showcasing the votes from Rose and onwards, and after all jurors had voted, all of the points (from the first 24 voters, and then the last 11 voters) were added together, and the placements of all countries competing in the grand final were revealed.

After the show ended, the management team of Zendari Song Contest revealed in a press conference that the results show was sabotaged by "a small internet group consisting of roughly 15 people", and that the internet group was being investigated by the FBI. They also revealed that this made them able to improve their security, and also gave them some ideas on how to reveal results in the future.

International broadcasts and voting

The contest was broadcasted in 38 countries.
