  1. the winner is Denmark!

  2. By the way, I’ve always wondered why the bookies use fractions instead of decimal numbers. Do they think everyone is a mental arithmetic genius?

  3. It’s pretty obvious Denmark has the best song and performance, it’s easy to see the quality difference between all the other songs, it’s like someone suddenly turned on the light. The only thing that’s missing IMO is a power note adlib towards the end of the song.

  4. CC.fractions are the traditional british way of betting-brits LOVE fractions-its william hill-a british company.Americans use a decinal method which I noticed here in Scandinavia-I still cannot understand the decimals though :)
    Is Denmark over-rated? only time will tell :)

  5. I am sure, denmark will not win!

  6. Bookmakers got it AMAZINGLY wrong in 2006.Lordi was 200\1.before the semi finals! (last favourite)
    2007-Serbia were 2nd favourites.
    2008- Russia was favourite and won.
    2009 Norway was favourite and won.
    2010 Germany was 2nd favourite and won
    .2011 Azerbaijan were 3rd favourite and won.
    2012 Sweden was favourite and won.
    I think its fair to say the winner will probably come from the top 3 or 4.Denmark,Norway,Sweden and Holland.

  7. I never vote on Eurovision, if i would vote it will be for Ukraine. The song is awesome.

  8. Just came across a site that lets you bet on Eurovision with bitcoin. I’d like to see what this space will look like in 6 months time. The guys laughing at Bitcoin now will probably be the same people lining up at exchanges to trade their USD in.

  9. 39. Belgium 150/1 , But they are in final :P

  10. Gianluca Bezzina, the Maltese representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, being held in Malmo, speaks with zuntier.com about his passion for music, his beliefs and his experience touring Europe in preparation for the semi-final in Malmo, this Thursday.
