Sweden’s Loreen and Romania’s Mandinga remain the favorites in our poll “Who Will Win Eurovision 2012?” Launched on March 25, the poll has recorded 15,393 votes as of May 16. Loreen (“Euphoria”) currently leads with 2,421 votes. That’s 275 more than more than Mandinga (“Zaleilah”). Last week Sweden led Romania by just 147 votes, so the gap is widening. In third place is Serbia’s Joksimovic (“Love Is Not a Thing”) with 1,138 votes. These three are the only contestants that have secured more than 1,000 votes.
Cyprus’ Ivi Adamou (“La La Love”) and Greece’s Eleftheria Eleftheriou (“Aphrodisiac”) remain in a deadlock for fourth and fifth position. Eleftheria currently enjoys a 29-vote lead (952 vs. 923). Eleftheria also has a lead over Ivi in our ongoing Eurovision Death Match poll, which directly compares these Cypriot-born beauties.
Albania’s Rona Nishliu—who recently gave WiwiBloggs.Com a fantastic interview at Eurovision in Concert—is holding steady in sixth place with 811 votes. That’s sure to go up following her fantastic first rehearsal at Eurovision. She also remains in second place with the Wiwi Jury, tied with Italy’s Nina Zilli (who is 12th position in this poll).
Turkey’s Can Bonomo (“Love Me Back”) has made impressive gains this week. When we last checked in on May 5 he had just 474 votes and sat in ninth place. This week he has pushed his tally up to 624 votes and is now in seventh position. Ireland’s Jedward are hot on his heels. They have moved from tenth place last week to eighth place today.
The Big 5 round out the top ten. Britain’s Engelbert Humperdinck is ninth and Spain’s Pastora Soler is 10th. You can vote for your favorite Big 5 contestant in our separate poll by clicking here.
The results below differ sharply from the bookies’ list of favorites. Iceland, Russia and Denmark have consistently been ranked in the Top 6 by the oddsmakers, but in our poll they fall far short of that. Iceland sits in 12th position, Russia is ranked 15th, and Denmark is ranked a disappointing 21st.
