Notes and references
- Russia tied for third-highest score with Belarus, both receiving 99 points, but the official scoreboard  ranks Belarus as third and Russia as fourth. This is consistent with the tie-breaking rule that the song that received points from the most countries ranks higher in the case of a tie. However the scoreboard for the 2009 contest lists a tie for second place between Russia and Armenia, because they both received points from every country. .
