It’s been one month since wiwibloggs kicked off their poll to determine who will win Eurovision 2012. In the first four weeks of voting, you guys have cast an impressive 11,889 votes for your favorite contestants. The last time we checked in, Sweden’s Loreen had a commanding lead over Serbia’s Zeljko Joksimovic (1,037 votes vs. 732 votes). But Romania’s Mandinga (“Zaleilah”) have made impressive gains since then and have risen from seventh place with 264 votes to second with 1,698. They now trail front-runner Loreen by just 93 votes. This is the first real challenge the “Euphoria” singer has faced since our contest started.

Serbia’s Joksimovic (“Love Is Not a Thing”) drops to third position with 989 votes, and he’s followed closely by Cyprus’ Ivi Adamou (“La La Love”) and Greece’s Eleftheria Eleftheriou (“Aphrodisiac”). Both of these ladies competed on Greek X-Factor. And both of these ladies have 731 votes. This is getting creepy. Albania’s Rona Nishliu—who recently gave Wiwibloggs a fantastic interview at Eurovision in Concert—is holding steady in sixth place with 597 votes. She also remains in second place with the Wiwi Jury.

Ireland’s Jedward appear to have been submerged beneath the “Waterline.” They have dropped from fifth place to ninth place. Rounding out the Top 10, the United Kingdom is in seventh, Spain is in eighth, and Turkey is in tenth.

Mandinga cheating?, relly?, why, its a nice song, people like it, probably is not the best, but what means the best for you here, i think it means to be a nice and easy song to remember. Romania has a summer song, a holliday song, its nice and i hope they win. Good luck Mandinga !

Honestly, the best song this year is Sound of our hearts by Compact disco, followed by Shoul’ve known better by Soluna Samay. However, I’d love Loreen to win because her song is ”a song for the masses” plus it’s not too cheesy,fake and cliche as La la love which I simply can not, can not stand. If not Loreen, then Željko Joksimovi?, because for once in my life I like the song which is representing my country and I’d love to book a ticket for next years’ ESC in Belgrade. 😀 Anyway…I love Jedward. I’d be the happiest person on… Read more »

It doesn’t matter if Romania wins or not. It is important that Mandinga’s song “Zaleilah” makes a lot of people happier and makes people sing and dance with them.. I’m very proud of my country. Mandinga, you are the best, go conquer Europe!!!

@Sulejman:
What’s actually your problem? Like someone else said before, Mandinga shared this link on their Facebook page. There’s nothing wrong at it, isn’t it?
And how do you think Romania has only 5%? In cold print Romania achieves 14,28%. How can you strengthen your argument?
Gosh, I would really like to have your problems. Stop taking it seriously! Finally we will see the results on 26th of May, so please calm down! WE ARE NO CHEATERS!!
