OGAE Poll 2016: More clubs cast votes, Russia still in the lead

Grab a bottle of water because the heat is on! Seven more OGAE clubs — Albania, Armenia, Croatia, Denmark, Luxembourg, Slovakia and Spain — have cast their votes in the OGAE Poll 2016. Last week Russia took the early lead after the first four clubs sent in their votes. Have the new votes had an impact on the Top 3?

Russia’s Sergey Lazarev is still sitting very pretty at the top. He earned twelve points from Albania, Armenia, Denmark and Luxembourg, which brings him to 109 points.

France’s Amir remains in a very close second position, just two points behind Russia. Croatia and Spain gave Amir their top points, while Denmark, Luxembourg and Slovakia all placed France in their top three. Will this be a two-horse race to the finish — and which horse will finish first?

The boys are racing ahead, but Australia’s Dami Im is still within striking distance. The “Sound of Silence” singer remains in third position with 82 points — more than double fourth place Italy.

Today sees Hungary’s Freddie gets his first twelve points from OGAE Slovakia, while Iceland’s Greta Salome finally cracks the top 3 with a club, courtesy of OGAE Luxembourg.

Eighteen countries, including Germany, Finland and Malta, have yet to receive any points.
