Culture and entertainment: The numbers showed that the Israeli artist Eden Golan received around 39 percent of the Italian vote, but Rai writes that these numbers were not final.

– The published votes are incomplete, writes the channel in one press release Friday.

– There was a technical error that caused some data, and not all of the data, from the national vote to be incorrectly displayed in the graphics, adds Rai.

It is unclear what led to the channel showing the vote numbers, but Rai further writes that they have apologized to the EBU management, and that they will comply with the rules for the rest of the event.

The TV companies will not publish the voting figures during the semi-finals, only announce which countries went to the final and which did not.

The number of votes can only be revealed after the final is over.
