The Wiwi Jury: Eurovision 2012 Reviews and Rankings

The Wiwi Jury—that’s Wiwi Bloggs, Vebooboo Nadella, Meows Kitty and Deban Aderemi—will listen to and review all 43 Eurovision entries prior to the first semi-final on May 22. Each member of the jury offers their thoughts on each entry, and then awards it a score out of 10. The four scores are then averaged for the Wiwi Jury Verdict. The jury consists of an American, an Australian, a Brit and a Finn—so we are truly international. Below you can check out the preliminary rankings based on our raw scores. However, to see the complete results re-adjusted using a fancy math formula, you need to click here.
