    01 pt—-ISRAEL
    02 pts—AZERBAIJAN
    03 pts—ESTONIA
    04 pts—FYROM
    05 pts—BULGARIA
    06 pts—PORTUGAL
    07 pts—FRANCE
    08 pts—SWEDEN
    10 pts—BELGIUM
    12 pts—ITALY

    • The current top 10 plus Azerbaijan. Good!

    • Plus considering OGAE ITALY couldn’t vote for themselves, the max Italy can score this year in OGAE voting is 43 x 12 = 516.
      So far, Italy has been given a 12 by every single club but 4. If they continue this way, Francesco will collect 503 points (with 12 clubs missing).
      That’s a very LANDSLIDE victory. Will esc be crowning another very obvious winner like in 2009 & 2012? Remains to be seen :)

    • Isn’t it fantastic that tiny Andorra still has an OGAE club even though they haven’t participated for almost a decade now?

  2. Off topic: Have you all heard Onyka will perform the interval act! :O This sounds like its gonna be good!

    • Yes.I have been fanwanking over it ever since.lol They will be accompanied by the NAONI orchestra on stage.

  3. What’s all the hype about Bulgaria this year ? It is such a boring song! Clearly a great singer for his young age but the song annoys me and sends me sleep ! Another boring ballad to win ?

  4. Inspired from Toggie, here are some bitchy/nasty alternative titles for some of this year’s ESC entries I don’t particularly care for:

    Czechia: Underwear ad
    Netherlands: Sisters’s catfight
    Montenegro: A boy called Rapunzel
    San Marino: Recurring nightmare
    Cyprus: All Rags and no Bone
    Serbia: In too shallow
    Malta: The Real Housewives of Valetta
    UK: Never give up on the EU
    Lithuania: The Revolution devours its children
    Germany: Sia from Lidl
    Slovenia: On your way Omar, never come back
    Norway: Our nerves in the coffin
    Albania: World, hear me shout
    Spain: Find another spanish lover
    Belarus: Happy campers from hell
    Switzerland: Apollo from Tirolo

  5. Battle of the day.Ok!Armenia is winning this with ease:

  6. 3 female backing vocalists and one male dancer on stage for Serbia.Hjallis,you won’t like this one,either. :P

    12 ITA :)
    10 FRA :)
    08 EST
    07 PRT :)
    06 BEL
    05 SWE
    04 BGR
    03 ISR pfffff
    02 CYP pfffff
    01 AZE :)

    • It’s a very diverse top 10. :)

      • With all of CYP, ISR, ITA, FRA and PRT being Mediterranean? :P

        • I was referring to musical style, not to geography. :)
          And hands off France. They are central European too! ;)

          • weirdly enough, we’re a bit of everything! (however this year’s entry is more mediterranean than “diwanit bugale” but not as much as “mama corsica” lol)

            • That’s the fate of the big ones. We are a bit Eastern European, a bit Austrian (Bavaria), a bit Scandinavian (Schleswig-Holstein) and even a tiny bit French here in the SW. In fact, people here in Ba-Wü have much more in common culturally with people in Alsace or Lorraine than they have with Prussians f. e.: villages look the same, food is similar, we make and enjoy great wines, we love onions and cheese. We even have a significant amount of French words in our dialects.

      • It’s pretty much what the other OGAEs have voting for with a few regional variations (Cyprus).

    • It’s a nice top-10 overall.

    • 7 pts from Greece. .:) I have to confess that I was not expecting to see ‘Amar pelos dois’ doing so well with this crowd. :) All in all, the OGAEs still vote for the same bunch of songs regardless of the country of origin and that is astonishing.

      P.S. – the biggest surprise is Denmark, imo. I was expecting too see Anja faring much better.

      • The biggest set of OGAE votes to Portugal so far, apart from Italy’s 12. I told you the greeks will like it ;)

        Italy has gotten 12 from everyone so far except Latvia, Hungary, Belarus and Armenia.

  8. Ooh, we really get a lot of truly tight voting this year! While I’m not crazy about any of these two songs, I do enjoy the Aussie one for having an enjoyable orchestration and smooth composition, while I don’t like the Bulgarian at all. So a bit disappointed this time, lol.

  9. Francesco himself came up with the choreography of “Occidentali’s Karma” :

  10. Can i say that i’m really pissed the greek stage performance seems to be uninspired and generic too?I know we have to wait for the whole thing but this 2 dancers forming a heart at the end is SO 00’s and been done all before.

  11. Dimivision is out of hibernation. :)


  12. i remember Morgan liking Shawn Barber.Today he came out as gay.I knew it!After the story behind his cocaine use scandal emerged i wasn’t convinced.I knew there was more to it.
