The drag performer, whose real name is Tom Neuwirth, developed a consistent lead as voting progressed, and ended up with 290 points. More than 50 points behind, The Netherlands came second with 238 points, with Sweden in third on 218. The “bearded lady”, as the 25-year-old is known, had stirred controversy especially in some eastern European countries. But no fewer than 13 countries gave her a maximum 12 points.
When saying no fewer than 13 , does it mean at least ? Is it just about stylish writing ? Or they are somehow different?
