Ladies leave your man at home! This year sixteen female soloists will take to the stage for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. 

They come from all corners of the world and all bring different songs to the table. They share a common aim: Winning the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. And while the sisterhood is all well and good, this is not Europe’s Best Friend Contest. These women are out to win and six weeks ago we asked you to select your favourite. Now, after 22,553 votes, we have your answer: Israel’s Netta.

She came, she clucked, she conquered with 14% of all votes cast. Since we opened the poll Netta has cemented her position as the bookies favourite and led the fan OGAE Poll 2018 since it started. All signs point to an impending Israeli victory in Lisbon in May.

Despite this, the margin between Netta and second place was small.

There were only 238 points between Netta and runner up Saara Aalto.

The “Monsters” hitmaker won 13% of all votes cast in the poll. Her total of 2947 votes was almost enough. The result sits alongside Saara’s other second place finishes on X-Factor UK and UMK.

Only one other act made it into double percentage figures. Croatia’s Franka rounds out the top three on the poll. Over 2,000 people ranked Franka as their favourite female soloist and she took 10% of all votes cast in total.

Her popularity clearly hasn’t been dented by a scandal that engulfed her song at the end of March.

Portugal’s Claudia Pascoal and Belgium’s Sennek round out the Top Five. Both ladies received 9% of all votes cast. They were also the only other acts to get more than 2,000 votes each. Greece, Estonia, Cyprus, Australia and Lithuania round out the Top 10.

I really love Lithuanian entry this year. Ieva’s personality is amazing and she actually can sing live! Sadly, I cannot vote for her in the SF1, but I do hope that she will be heard and noticed… Many people say that she will be forgotten and her performance at the SF1 will be a toilet break, but she is performing after a break and she really does translate the emotions! 🙂

It is sooo suspenseful this year. I am really curious who is going to win: Israel, France, Bulgaria – or some Dark Horse. The live performances are sooo decisive his year. And to my sorrow the juries might tip the scales…

FRANCE is now fourth in the betting odds and moving up ….. watch out Netta as they may topple you from your lofty perch !
The problem for Netta is that she ”peaked” too soon ; folks are getting tired of her song and there’s still over two weeks to go …..France has buzz and momentum and are slowly creeping up in the odds like Salvador did last year when he only became the favourite the night before the final

I agree with your comment, Alfred5. It was pretty obvious that France is in this to win back in January when they organized Destination Eurovision. They have been trying to find a way to victory in the past couple of years, and in 2018 they upped their game by organizing a wonderful national selection. Then Mercy was chosen and i thought i would grow tired if it by the time all the songs were selected. But i wasn’t. And now May is almost arriving and the signs seem to suggest that the winner may very well be France. Israel was… Read more »

Israel is divisive and the live performance is still in doubt ; not so with France …….the folks in E Europe who are more traditional and conservative will not go for Netta, methinks
France has launched a humanitarian crusade with their song

Percentage wise the French songs have much more downvotes than Israel on YouTube. Israel also has way way more likes! France’s song is just so… so…. boring!

Is it? I mean I like the fact there isn’t any LEDs, but still I thought there would be something else, but there are just lights and two bridges, I mean we’ll have to wait until rehearsals and camera angles, but so far it looks super basic…
