OGAE Poll 2017: Italy remains on top, Cyprus gives Greece first lot of points

94

The points for the OGAE Poll 2017 continue to flow in. OGAE Australia has made its debut (g’day!) with one of the larger OGAE votes so far at 77 members. Points have also come from OGAE Cyprus who have kindly put neighbouring Greece on the scoreboard this year. There are no surprises at the top, with Italy, Belgium and Sweden still in the lead.

OGAE Australia‘s top points went to general poll favourites — 12 points to Italy, ten points to Estonia, and eight points to Sweden. Australia’s ten points to Estonia is equalled only by the ten points previously awarded by Baltic neighbour Finland. The biggest surprise from down under is the single point awarded to Azerbaijan, giving Dihaj’s “Skeletons” a total of nine points.

Over in the Mediterranean, OGAE Cyprus also gave its points to poll favourites — 12 points to Italy, ten points to France and eight points to Belgium. Cyprus’s six points, however, went to Greece, which finally put Demy on the scoreboard. Demy is a well known pop star in Cyprus, so it’s no surprise there was love for her there.

On the overall scoreboard, the top seven songs remain solid, with Italy, Belgium and Sweden continuing their reign of first second and third. The only big change on the scoreboard is the introduction of Greece, with Demy’s six points putting Greece above six other countries.

Thirteen countries are yet to receive any points from OGAE clubs, but with more than half the OGAE clubs still left to vote, anything could happen.
