  1. Looks like a lot of big jury points to Italy in the beginning and to Sweden towards the end …

  2. Yeah that’s what we were thinking…

  3. Sweden or Russia will win. Shiny plastic ftw!

  4. Valentina! <3

    You don't know how hard it's been without you in my life this year!

  5. What’s Nigella got to do with music?

  6. If this order is based on the jury voting then my guess is that Sweden will win. In the last 6 countries voting there are favorites Russia and Italy which won’t be giving points to themselves. And then there are Norway and Iceland with 24 points for Sweden in the last minute :D

  7. Russia seems to be taking a very early lead And then probably Sweden takes over with the jury vote. There is a block of voting from 19-25 where I can see Belgium doing well as well. But the ending screams Sweden.

    • I don’t think so. It is just the jury vote at the moment.

      • Well I don’t think there are doubts that televoting will heavily favour Sweden accross Europe, Russia at the east and Belgium at central-west.

  8. This DOES look very good for Sweden. Russia and Italy possibly with early points as well. Only two former Soviet countries in the second half of voting (Lithuania and Georgia), and I wouldn’t necessarily expect them to give 12s to Russia, either.

    I could also argue for possible dark horse wins for Belgium (Netherlands going 32nd) and Latvia (Lithuania going 31st) but I do see those countries going for Sweden as well.

  9. All I know is that the first 8 countries are definitely giving a boost to Italy but then there is a Russian friendly strike!
    At the end there is San Marino and Cyprus (Italian boost again)
    and Iceland/Norway who will give high points to Sweden no doubt!

    • Cyprus can boost all three IMO.

      • True but jury-wise they are most probably voting for Italy!

        • Greece first and then Italy. But Sweden can trouble all these in the televoting. Italy might not do well there.

        • So Austria being the host will be saved from bottom 5 :p

          • Well if u see my my yesterday’s prediction I had Austria at #23! But for sure they didn’t deserve last place! I only underestimated Montenegro (but it was #13 only because of geopolitical votes, so…) and I quite overestimated France (I should have sticked to my initial feeling = boring song).
            We all pretty much did fine with our predictions… I guess betting odds were more accurate than ever this year and this is such a fun’s spoiler!

            • Yes exactly. But if someone follows the rehearsals is easy to figure out what would happen. What I didn’t see coming is Slovenia. It fade away with style. They achieved almost nothing in terms of jury vote.

            • I was telling u since day 1 Slovenia is too introverted to achieve a great ranking! As I was right about Finland (when people claimed they would win televoting in semi they only ranked #10 and juries killed them ! Sympathy vote needs an ok song too!)

            • Have you checked the split results for each country?

              Juries in the Caucasus FYROM and Montenegro are lame. But kudos to FYROM they marked Greece without any bias.

            • I haven’t yet ! Too much info to handle atm

            • Check it. Greece on the other hand….slaughtered them.

  10. Methinks Sweden won the jury vote. Italy and Russia voting near the end gave it away. :-P

    Belgium can get some good points from those last 5-10 countries at least!

  11. so ok we all agree this looks like Sweden-Russia-Italy-Belgium are a lock for top 5 from juries, though I’d say these alst countries all seem to be in favor of Belgium and Latvia as well…

    but remember, that’s 50% of the votes only. If televote massively supports only one of these 5 and an odd duck (like Russia 2012 being very close to Sweden there), then that one will win and the odd duck can surpass the other ones

  12. The spokeswomen at 3-5 have to be the best sequence of spokespersons off all time without a doubt.

    Greece’s best ever entry, Portugal’s best ever entry. And do I really need to heap any more praise on the greatest entry of all time after all these years? I can you know.

  13. So glad Kati, Ofer and Margrethe are back for another year! :-)

    No Scott (United Kingdom) or Eva (Hungary)… :-(

  14. The voting order in esc 2013 when another Nordic country won:

    San Marino (John Kennedy O’Connor)
    Sweden (Yohio)
    Albania (Andri Xhahu)
    Netherlands (Cornald Maas)
    Austria (Kati Bellowitsch)
    United Kingdom (Scott Mills)
    Israel (Ofer Nachshon)
    Serbia (Maja Nikolic)
    Ukraine (Matias)
    Hungary (Éva Novodomszky)
    Romania (Sonia Argint)
    Moldova (Olivia Furtuna)
    Azerbaijan (Tamilla Shirinova)
    Norway (Tooji)
    Armenia (Andre)
    Italy (Federica Gentile)
    Finland (Kristiina Wheeler)
    Spain (Inés Paz)
    Belarus (Darya Domracheva)
    Latvia (Anmary)
    Bulgaria (Joana Dragneva)
    Belgium (Barbara Louys)
    Russia (Alsou)
    Malta (Emma Hickey)
    Estonia (Rolf Roosalu)
    Germany (Lena)
    Iceland (Maria Sigrun Hilmarsdottir)
    France (Marine Vignes)
    Greece (Andriana Magania)
    Ireland (Nicky Byrne)
    Denmark (Sofie Lassen-Kalhke)
    Montenegro (Ivana Sebek)
    Slovenia (Andrea F)
    Georgia (Liza Tsiklauri)
    F.Y.R. Macedonia (Dimitar Atanasovski)
    Cyprus (Loukas Hamatsos)
    Croatia (Uršula Tolj)
    Switzerland (Mélanie Freymond)
    Lithuania (Ignas Krupavicius)

  15. Juries that may have given high scores to Italy(Malta,Greece,Albania)are early in the voting order and San Marino late.Remember that the Nordic juries don’t always favor a Nordic winner(Denmark 2013 got more pts outside the Nordics which were all behind Margaret Berger).So,the Nordics could be favoring another entry like Belgium or Estonia.
