Britain's Eurovision song "Bigger Than Us" is an even bigger flop than previously thought after its last-place entry was stripped of five points to correct a math error.
Michael Rice's song Bigger Than Us was supposed to have knocked up a measly 16 points during the finale on Saturday (May 18), but that figure has been revised down to 11.
The revision resulted from an error following the dismissal of the Belarussian jury, which had broken the rules by revealing their votes from the first semi-final.
In a statement, Eurovision organisers blamed "human error" for the mistake and said they "deeply regret" the error.
Eurovision's top four - including victor Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands - remained unchanged, though Norway also had points deducted and dropped to sixth from fifth.

Norway's entry - which was the most popular with the United Kingdom audience - was also deducted points, meaning Sweden jumped above them into fifth.
His song, Arcade, gained six points under... "Everyone here is just so supportive, the community has really come together".
Speaking to The Sun, he suggested that Brexit might have had something to do with the poor result.
Michael said: "I always knew I was going to come in this position because of Brexit".
He told the publication that, even if the United Kingdom had been represented by an internationally renowned artist, we still would have finished in bottom place.
