Poll results: favourites Nordic entries of Eurovision 2016
Greta Salóme can expect to hear all of Europe calling, as she tops our poll with an impressive 2,247 votes — that’s a massive 39.13% of all votes cast. Iceland is the only Nordic country without a win — could that change this year?
Norway’s Agnete comes second with “Icebreaker”. She won the Norwegian Melodi Grand Prix in a landslide and she continues to slay in our poll. Norway received 1,425 votes, 24.82% of all the votes cast.
Sweden is tantalising close to breaking Ireland’s record for most Eurovision victories. Bookies are currently ranking them third and out of the five Nordic entries, our readers have Sweden in the same place. Frans picked up 1,011 votes or 17.61% of all votes cast.
Denmark and Finland bring up the rear. Both countries won the contest in the past decade, but it isn’t looking good for 2016. Denmark received just 9.6% of votes while Finland managed a mere 8.84%.
Do you agree with the result? Will one of the Nordic countries win this year? Let us know below.
