With the semi-finals now complete, Google’s Eurovision prediction tool, which forecasts the winner based on Internet searches, has seen some big changes. Germany’s Lena remains atop the leader board, but Greece’s Giorgos Alkaios and Friends and Serbia’s Milan Stankovi have surged into the top 6, displacing Azerbaijan’s Safura and Georgia’s Sofia Nizharadze. There are some obvious flaws with Google’s prediction tool. It still includes countries that were eliminated during the semi-finals (Estonia’s Malcolm Lincoln sits in fourth position still!). But it does serve as a useful indicator of how the public might vote: last year it correctly predicted that Norway’s Alexander Ryback would storm to victory.

Your “analysis” sucks! Estonia was eliminated from competition, but you still comment on Malcolm’s “advance”. Ha-ha-ha!!!

I’d like to point out that you’re using the wrong flag for Serbia. That’s the Slovakian flag… for goodness sake.
