Tonight: Eurovision Song Contest 2013!

Malmö – We’ve been together for the new contest rules, for the national finals around Europe, for the rehearsals, for two semi-finals and this is finally it: tonight is the night for the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013!

After which will come an interval act featuring a Loreen medley and Carola was announceed part of it. Petra Mede is this year’s hostest but she’ll be helped by Eric Saade in the greenroom and appearances by Lynda Woodruff, the character created by Sarah Dawn Finer. The voting will then take place, the hostess will announce the country’s turn with the first 1 through 7 points shown on screen before we call to the spokesperson to give the top 3 result. You can find the voting running-order here, remember it was computer-made based on the juries’ result to make the voting as most exciting as possible, but then televote has often been different enough that it’s not certain we’ll get an exciting vote this year.

  1. We got the power is not as good as euphoria.

  2. The odds on me learning a new language are also falling fast.

  3. the swedish sketch is hilarious

  4. Ukraine is falling fast. About to catch Norway for second favorite.

  5. well, i can live with denmark as a winner
    malta and hungary top 10!!!!

  6. Is Kobenhaven expensive?

  7. Hungary, Netherlands, Italy, Norway in the top 10 is fine by me, Malta I get it… Denmark I get too… Greece I sorta get it…

    Azerbaijan, Russia and Ukraine dont deserve it but I knew they were coming…

    Belgium is like 12th behind Moldova 11th right? I had Moldova and Georgia wrong in the top 10 and didnt have Malta nor Norway! so 8/10

    and in my bottom 5 I had Lithuania, Ireland, Finland and Spain, just didnt have France 4/5

  8. Just the first reaction : CONGRATULATIONS EMMELIE !!! YOU DID GIRL !!!

  9. Well that was an exciting voting!Congratulations to Denmark!!!My pther favorite got a very deserving 4th place!Go,Margaret!And Greece a 6th place.I’m so pleased!I was expecting Ukraine and Azerbaijan to complete the top-3.Russia didn’t deserve their placing and i feel the need to apologize on behalf of all Greeks for those 10 pts to Romania! :(

  10. Officially I declare myself innocent!

  11. Wow, the left side of the score board. 12 points to Belgium, so no moaning and complaining from the south. I am happy (and also a little bit drunk).

  12. And Belgium got a 12th place while it fought all the time for a top 10 ?! I knew I should have faith in Roberto ! :)

  13. russia top 5 is the only result annoying me
    but saw it coming anyway

  14. Ah well, got the winner right (not that difficult in my opinion) and 3 of the other top 5 places (Norway, Ukraine, Azerbaijan). Russia wasn’t an unexpected number 5 either.

    I think that Emmelie winning was obvious since she won her national final, with only Azerbaijan causing any concern this evening (I think they tried TOO hard this year, TOO slick and stage managed). The whole evening was very well managed but I don’t think it had the excitement created last year by Euphoria.
