Three weeks and 7,600 votes later, Lithuania’s ivory-tickling Sasha Son has climbed to the top of Wiwi’s ongoing poll to determine which Eurovision song fans are listening to the most. Sasha, whose surname means ‘dreamy’ in Russian, now claims 43% of all votes, putting him just ahead of Azeri duo Arash and Aysel, who stand at 41%. Romania’s Elena Gheorghe, the most voluptuous daughter of a priest ever to perform at Eurovision, is a distant third with 5%. Elena and Sasha, who finished 19th and 23rd at Eurovision, must wish that voting could take place two months after-the-fact.
Elsewhere, Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak jumps from seventh to fourth position, and Ukraine’s Svetlana Loboda, a.k.a “the stripper in a hamster wheel,” finally cracks the Top 10. Iceland’s Yohanna, one of Eurovision’s fashion casualties in 2009, drops out of the Top 10 and lands in twelfth position.

(1) Lithuania, Sasha Son, “Love,” 43%
(2) Azerbaijan, Arash & Aysel, “Always,”41%
