In the final concert of Eurovision Song Contest, when the scores are announced, representatives from many countries say "eight/ten/twelve points goes to...". This sounds completely wrong to me, "points" is plural after all. But since many say so I thought that maybe this is a standard way of announcing the results. Maybe it's just shortened "the result of twelve points goes to". I can't believe that so many people say it wrong for so many years.
Is it appropriate to use singular announcing the scores this way or is it a bad English?
Update: I watched the jury votes of 2016 now and he majority seem to say "twelve point go to...". Maybe it was just my selective perception about "almost everyone" so I edited the question but it still the same.
