Since the bookies first released Eurovision odds back in March, eight contestants have dominated the odds table almost continuously. They are Sweden’s Loreen, Italy’s Nina Zilli, Russia’s Buranovskiye Babushki, Serbia’s Zeljko Joksimovic, Britain’s Engelbert Humperdinck, Denmark’s Soluna Samay, Iceland’s Gréta Salóme & Jónsi and Spain’s Pastora Soler. Of these, Sweden and Serbia are performing the best in our poll “Who Will Win Eurovision 2012?” But if we eliminate all the countries at the bottom of the table—think Bosnia, Belgium and the like—who would you vote for? It’s time to choose your favourite from the favourites.

You can listen to the eight leading contenders below, and then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many contestants as you would like, but you can only vote one time. Be sure to check the box next to each contestant that you want to support. The poll closes on March 24, 2012 at 11:59pm Baku time.

Sweden: Loreen with “Euphoria”:

Italy: Nina Zilli with “L’Amore è Femmina” (Out of Love):

Russia: Buranovskiye Babushki with “Party for Everybody”:

Serbia: Zeljko Joksimovic with “Nije ljubav stvar” (Love Is Not A Thing):

Britain: Engelbert Humperdinck with “Love Will Set You Free”:

Denmark: Soluna Samay with “Should’ve Known Better”:

Spain: Pastora Soler with “Quédate conmigo” (Stay with Me):

Iceland: Gréta Salóme & Jónsi with “Remember Me”:

I think that its time for Europe to VOTE for da best.
In this case ALBANIA has the greatest asset that Europe could have for this Eurovision

I thought I could find Albania in this poll but I see there isn’t so I won’t give any vote. She’s my favorite of this year. It’s way too good for Eurovision.

Anyway, Remember me has great lyrics, the best I’ve seen so far – it’s not just what they say, but how they say it. I mean other songs have good lyrics too, but this one is a bit deeper, without making you sleep. The italian has a good rhythm and Serbia’s song is fine, but not for this kind of contest I think.

I wonder what’s so special about Euphoria. Ok, the lyrics are good, and the live appearance is tolerable – it has no meaning and it’s too dark for me – but it’s not the best song. I think Cyprus can in fact face up to Sweden and so can Greece. I’m not saying they’ll win, but I’m surprised with Euphoria’s fans.

@Sulejman – I dont know who you are and where youre from but stop saying shit about Mandinga/Romania! Posting a link on facebook is NOT cheating its called fucking SHARING. Sorry for my swearing but I saw youre saying these things on almost EVERY article or comment about Romania. The real winner will be VOTED by people from all over Europe on 22nd and 26th of May, and maybe people that voted here wont even vote on tv, which means absolutely NOTHING. There are so many people that will just vote that night, after hearing and seeing the performances LIVE,… Read more »
