Turkey's Hadise

Wiwibloggs’s Eurovision poll opened on May 1 and closed on May 15 at 11:59pm. During that time voters cast a total of 35,802 votes, making this one of the largest Eurovision polls in the world. The results are:

(1) Turkey: 22% (7,809)

(2) Greece: 22% (7,807)

(3) Romania: 16% (5,825)

(4) Albania: 14% (5,133)

(5) Malta: 7% (2,503)

(6) Lithuania: 3% (1,024)

(7) Azerbaijan: 2% (841)

(8) Armenia: 2% (660)

(9) Norway: 2% (650)

(10) France: 1% (517)

Greece's Sakis Rouvas

Turkey’s Hadise edged out Greece’s Sakis Rouvas by just two votes, essentially placing the two in a deadlock. Romania fell to third following Greece’s showing in the second semi-final. Albania, who was a pleasant surprise on Thursday, overtook Malta’s Chiara for the first time. Lithuania and Azerbaijan held steady, while Armenia finally passed Norway, who may be suffering in the poll due to months of overexposure. France once again placed in the Top 10, suggested it may do the best of the Big 4 (despite oddsmakers backing Britain).

These predictions should be taken seriously. In addition to its size, the Wiwi Poll has proven incredibly accurate. On May 14, it predicted nine of the nine countries advancing from the second semi-final, matching its success during the first semi-final on May 12. (In both cases, the tenth country was selected by a jury of producers). Click here for the live blog of the first Eurovision semi-final and click here to review the second semi-final.

Elena: Will Tuesday be her night?

On the eve of the first Eurovision Semi-Final, Romania’s Elena Gheorghe is surging in Wiwibloggs’ ongoing Eurovision prediction poll. More than 11,000 votes have now been cast, and Elena has leapfrogged eight places to reach second position with 12% of all votes. She narrowly edged out Malta’s Chiara (11%) who staged her own dramatic comeback last week (see below). Their ongoing resurgence continues to reduce the lead of longtime front-runner Hadise, the Belgian-born beauty and occasional lip-syncher representing Turkey, who stands at 38%—her lowest portion of votes since this poll started two weeks ago. Other countries reaching the Top Ten were: Azerbaijan (6%), Greece (5%), Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom and Armenia (3%), and Lithuania (2%).

Chiara: On the moveSaturday, May 9, 2009

Eight-thousand votes have now been cast in Wiwibloggs’ Eurovision poll, and Turkey’s Hadise maintains a comfortable lead with 43% of all votes. However, for the first time in nine days,  Hadise has seen her lead shrink (down from Monday’s high of 49%). Meanwhile, Malta’s Chiara Siracusa is mounting a comeback. After shining during her two rehearsals this week, Chiara reclaimed voter support and jumped from eighth place five days ago to second place today, claiming 12% of the vote (up from 3% on Monday). Azerbaijan’s Aysel and Arush also had stellar performances and earned 9% of the vote, helping them push Greece’s Sakis Rouvas (6%) down to fourth place, his lowest placement thus far in the Wiwi Poll. Other countries in the Top 10 were: United Kingdom and Armenia (4%), Norway, Portugal and Sweden (3%) and Romania (2%).

Can anyone hold Hadise back?

Entering the second week of voting here on the Wiwibloggs Eurovision Predictions, Turkey’s Hadise continues to dominate. Of the 4,500 votes cast so far, Turkey claimed an impressive 49%. Interestingly, the majority of Wiwibloggs readers reside in Western Europe, suggesting that Hadise has continent-wide support in her bid to make voters hearts go Düm Tek Tek. And her momentum appears to be building: last week Hadise topped the charts in Belgium for the first time.

So it appears this has become a race for second place. Azerbaijan leapfrogged five places to share second position with Greece. Both claimed 6% of the vote. Other countries reaching the Top 10 were: United Kingdom, Sweden and Portugal (5%), Norway (4%), Malta and Estonia (3%), and Romania (2%). (Does everyone want to be Hadise?

Other countries in the Top 10 were Sweden (8%), Norway and Azerbaijan (7%), Estonia, Malta and the United Kingdom (5%) and Iceland (3%).

Dance in armenia’s song does not belongs to armenia’s culture. It’s stolen.

I think that none of the contenders are valued based on their performance.Eurovision is THE most politicized event in the artistic World!In order to have honest judgment,the judges/jury shouldn’t be from European Countries.If the Jury were from other then EU the result would be different.

You might be right. Beyonce is a pro, she is well paid and any way, everyone knows that if it is something American, it is just that common big business. True talent is not a freakin’ business. Chiara doess have a talent, and an excellent one too. We simply do not love useless businesses just to appear on MTV and youtube…. And just loving the eurovision (i don’t really love it btw) does not mean depressed, respect other, cause I think several hobbies might be stupid, but for their fans, it is not. so, do not tell others that they… Read more »

Azerbaijan, Turkey, Greece, Albania, and so on …
The same type of songs. It is as if the same group performed the song. Every year the same. Nothing original!
People vote for all of this.
Complete this nonsense!
Vote for the UK, Lithuania, Norway, Malta, Estonia, Iceland and many other good songs, which I do not remember (sorry)

I do not understand ppl there. Eurovision song contest is becoming tasteless show. All performers, more or less, are great, bc they are representing own country. But look, turkey, greece etc. they too boring, because this kind of music is too commercial and CHEAP!
so, ppl change your conception of it. And of cos, vote not for neighbor country, but who you really like!

In my opinion, should be on the top list Lithuania, Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Malta and sorry, others i dont remember 😉

Vote from your heart and do not show that everyone have “not novelettish”taste of music. !

do you really think that kind of shit like Turkey, Greece, Romania, Albania, Ukraine is the good taste music? Be realistic, because it’s totally crap. You should listen Norway, United Kingdom, Lithuania, Malta, Iceland and Estonia. This should be in top 10, but I feel bad because I know the votes come in political ways.
