Sweden’s Loreen will win Eurovision 2012 in a landslide, but Romania’s Mandinga and Albania’s Rona Nishliu remain outside threats. That’s according to Wiwi’s readers, who cast a total of 20,299 votes in our poll to determine this year’s winner.

The “Euphoria” singer, who has done a good job hiding her back-up singers this year, earned 3,032 votes. That puts her well ahead of second-place finisher Mandinga from Romania. They earned 2,538 after recording a special message for Wiwi’s readers on YouTube. Albania’s Rona Nishliu, who gave wiwibloggs a fantastic interview yesterday, has jumped all the way to third with 1,551 votes.

Below you will find two charts. The first lists the final standings for the grand final. The second chart includes eliminated contestants. Interestingly, Sofi Marinova—the one you might have mistakenly thrown dollar bills at—finished in 13th place, the highest of any eliminated contestant. Spain’s Pastora Soler finished ninth, making her the most successful of this year’s Big Five.

Every time and more I am being convinced that Rona Nishliu with her song “Suus” will be the winner of this year. I really do hope that this time there will be no political voting as it happened last years, instead, I hope it will be an appreciation of the real musical values such as Rona’s song. All time dancing songs in which there isn’ t a single musical value have to me removed definitely even from the competition. I call to all the Europeans to vote for ALBANIA with the code 03 and Rona Nishliu -Suus !! Best from… Read more »

Albania calling! SUUS This song is an answer to all those authors and singers who offend the European audience with their cheap songs stuffed with special effects, strong lights, disco beats and sexy dolls bouncing like rabbits at a repetitive rhythms. Goodevening? Europe of the refined artistic taste, peculiar spirit and original emotions. No matter if she wont win. ESC is already a discredited stage of industrial cheap products where sex wins always in the eternal struggle with art

Reading all these comments pro and against Rona makes me feel like she is the real winner without the need of voting. Those who are commenting pro Rona appreciated her song and marvelous voice.
Those who make stupid and racist comments against her, they fear her.
Haters gonna hate!!!

From Norway, but I think Norway will stay in the Top 10 or Top 15. It’s catchy and good, and Tooji is also a nice and handsome young man. The melody and beat are perfect for countries like Turkey, Azerbaian, Greece and the rest of the east-Europe (That’s the Norwegians’ predictions) Anyway; I think our 12 points will go to Loreen and Euphoria, and I think I will see you all in Stockholm next year 😉 Good luck to everybody, and may the best song win! 😀

Albania is not singing she’s screaming and the song is boring as well.
There’s thin line between singing and screaming. If you want to learn how to hit the high notes you have to see spain, france or even ukraine and macedonia.Those ladies can hit the high notes without screaming.
But anyway,since this pooling can be voted by their own country i never believe the result. It’s ridiculous. lols…

Find out what kind of “doping” did Rona consume before climbing on the stage, what hides behind her voice, find out what is the real source of her strength. The story she didn’t tell but that everybody felt, here it is what she meant.
Follow the link. It takes more than being a completed artist to perform that.
