First rehearsals are underway during the afternoon at Eurovision. But when the lights go down and the costumes come off, the men of Eurovision turn their eyes to another contest: our annual search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model.

Wiwibloggs readers have cast a total of 4,165 votes since the finals launched on 30 April. There may be 16 men in the final, but only three are making any kind of impact. Romania’s Cezar Ouatu, Azerbaijan’s Farid Mammadov, and Italy’s Marco Megoni account for a whopping 85% of all votes. They each have more than 1,000 votes. No one else has more than 77. To the other 13 men making themselves increasingly irrelevant Wiwi says this: Turn up the heat or you will go down in flames.

Romania’s Cezar currently leads with 33% of all votes. A reader who goes by the name of “Number1Fan” was so excited to vote for him that she forgot to put spaces between words in the comments box. She says:

Cezar,oh,Cezar!!!So sexy,so hot,so…man!Real man!I’m head over heels!You have to win this competion!!!:)))

Ileana is also standing by Romania’s man.

CEZAR is so handsome and a true man! So sensitive, intelligent, with sense of humor, with sense of responsibility, a great heart and soul, with proffessionality and such a big voice! And he has worked a lot, besides his talent! A true gentleman!!! AVE CEZAR!!!

Cezar, a true performer, removed his shirt during his official music video for “It’s My Life”. Here are some screen grabs. You can watch the full video here.

Screen shot 2013-05-08 at 00.51.53 Azerbaijan’s Farid Mammadov—he of workout video fame—is currently in second place with 27% of all votes. Y’all have seen him shirtless about a million times, but here’s a reminder of his sporty physique and winning smile.

Pasha, one of our readers, has already said what you’re thinking.

FARID from AZERBAIJAN!!!! Have you seen his abs??? He’s gorgeous, handsome and hawt!

She isn’t wrong.

In third place is weight-loss king Marco Mengoni from Italy. He currently has 26% of all votes. Ella sums him up this way.

There is no one like Marco Mengoni. His movements on stage, his hypnotizing and smouldering eyes. Unique, authentic, mysterious and breathtaking.

He also has this amazing photo from the cover of Vanity Fair Italy.

Team Wiwi are now in Malmö and we’ll do our best to post video interviews with our three front-runners to find out why they deserve a spot in our Top Model Hall of Fame and a shot at the title. As for now, you can review the complete standings below. If your favourite man isn’t in the Top 3, rally your countrymen and get them to vote! This poll doesn’t close until a week AFTER the Eurovision final. The party will keep on going, people. But only if you vote.

A lot of talent, hard work and seriousness – that’s CEZAR … and handsome, obviously.
He deserved first place not only on this top but on the Eurovision song contest too. The Romanian magic formula: original song and show, an valuable artist, Romanian composer and the coolest team.
Dracula from Romania already gain our souls with his original VOICE.
Delighted to hearing CEZAR’s song I am happy to give you my best gift: 12 points from Spain.
VOTE FOR ROMANIA!

Excuse me, but is there a similar poll on female performers?

If not, this is sexist bullshit and should be stopped.

Sorry, I still can’t get all the hype over Cezar. Yes, he can sing, and he seems a really nice guy, but he’s so not my taste. And the song is a nightmare 🙁

Farid is hot as hell. He really has THE body, and his face ain’t bad either.

Marco is just perfect. His shy personality, edgy look and amazing voice make a kiler combination. “Marry me, baby!” (SIEGFRIEDS, Krista)

From the other guys, I wouldn’t kick Robin, Eythor and ByeAlex out of my bed, to be honest. But, overall, we’ve had better years for male bodies admiration.

LOL. This is hilarious. Obviously Italy is the hottest. Give me pepperoni people!! ROME START VOTING!!! I need to see this man as Top Model 2013. Azerbaijan is cute and Romania is manly. But they are not models. Just amateurs.
