OGAE: Spain, Finland, Sweden and Germany Vote


ogaeOGAE 2015: Today the OGAE clubs of Spain, Finland, Sweden and Germany announced their votes and this round went to Italy and Estonia. Sweden (for a change) failed to get douze points from any of the clubs this time around. Read on for full results

OGAE SPAIN
1 point – Albania
2 points – France
3 points – Russia

12 points – Italy

OGAE GERMANY

OGAE FINLAND

3 points – United Kingdom
4 points – Spain
5 points – Norway
6 points – Australia

3 points – Azerbaijan
4 points – Spain
5 points – Slovenia
6 points – Norway
7 points – Israel
8 points – Australia

12 points – Estonia

Interesting things from this round is Sweden’s failure in getting 12 points from any of the clubs from this selection. The United Kingdom have received more points from Finland and Sweden. Belgium is still missing from most top 10’s here but Israel are still doing well. With Sweden not being able to vote for themselves and Spain’s low score for Sweden, Italy are now further ahead in the top 10:

Italy – 263 points
Sweden – 240 points
Estonia – 193 points
Slovenia – 156 points
Norway – 155 points

Tomorrow we will get the votes from Portugal, Slovakia, Belgium and Latvia

  1. The OGAEs continue to vote for the same set of countries; they never stray very far from their usual stuff. Italy is faring very well in Northern Europe and that comes as a bit of a surprise, imo. We shall see how this pans out.

    • I agree, very surprised to see Finland pick Italy over Sweden, though I think it will be different in the real esc.

      “Keep having to edit out “different in May,” or “we’ll see in May” it is May already, im not used to esc being so late!

      • You never know with the Finnish vote which does not necessarily go to Sweden. Since 2004, the Finnish 12 pts went to Sweden only twice (2004 + 2012). On the other hand, they gave top points to Norway on 4 occasions … so why shouldn’t they go for a gloomy little song like NOR15? After all, well all know that the Finnish soul has a very gloomy side too. :)

    • Italy has been in the OGAE top five three of the last four years, and the last popera entry (which is very typical OGAE and ESC fare, imo) won the poll altogether. I really don’t think this result is anything surprising – it just continues the trend of OGAE supporting whichever entries have been hyped up by the bookies.

  2. I have once seen the Finnish language described as “Chinese pronounced as if it were Italian”. Wonder if that is the reason for their 12 points to Italy?

  3. The new song and video by the Makemakes.I really like it:

  4. awful results in the UK tonight…

  5. I like the overall absence of neighbour voting from OGAE Spain, no points for Portugal and Romania. But they also gave a few points to France. Interesting.

  6. Why is Sunderland faster than anyone else?

  7. God, the vote counting in UK really takes a lot of time. I wanna know if “Cannabis Is Safer Than Alcohol” will get a seat! :P

  8. I wish that all of the UK was like Sunderland …Good night!

  9. One thing to celebrate: 70 years since World War II ended in Europe. Peace in our time!

  10. One of the most remarkable things about UK politics is that Sinn Féin are not represented because they refuse to accept the Oath of Allegiance.

    I’ll soon give up. I can’t stay up half night to see the live update of the UK election. Good luck to all the people counting the votes this hour of the wolf. ;)

  11. I am glad that I didn’t stay up for those awful results.

    • UK system of voting is pretty much like ESC voting, winner takes it all, it was as surprise, though maybe not unexpected considering the weak opposition that Uk got another 5 years of Tories, and with a majority too
