Later this evening confetti will fall and the newest winner of the Eurovision Song Contest will lift the microphone-shaped trophy into the air. If our readers are a barometer of European attitudes, then Armenia’s Aram Mp3 will win in a landslide.
Since March 21 our readers have cast a total of 103,722 votes. The “Not Alone” singer won with a staggering 18,885 votes—or more than 18% of all those cast. His electro ballad is a reminder that while you may be physically alone, you remain spiritually and cosmically connected to those you love. The bookies have cooled on Aram since his nervous performance in the first semi-final. But during last night’s jury final he regained his composure and upped his game, so much so that the Mp3 appears to have been upgraded to an Mp4. Werrrrrk.
According to our readers, Greece’s Freaky Fortune feat. Riskykidd offer the strongest challenge. The trio—who are currently #1, #2 and #3 in our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model—came second in our poll with 12,047 votes, or nearly 12% of all those cast. Their song, a hip-hop call-to-arms for disgruntled Greek youth, recently won our poll for best music video of 2014.
The bookies’ favourites also did well in our poll. The UK’s Molly came fourth with 3,210 votes, while Sweden’s Sanna Nielsen came sixth with 2,773 votes.

Greece & Armenia truly sucked this year! As did Poland. How they got into the final is a mystery! Bring back the likes of Inga & Anush, Kosa Mostra (they had a great song), and anyone else but what Poland sent to Eurovision. I’m just glad someone with actual singing ability won the contest, and that San Marino FINALLY got into the final, although she and Slovenia should’ve been higher. Just because it sounds fun doesn’t mean that it doesn’t suck!
too bad you ended up being #22, LOSER!
@charles i just expressed my opinion about it, that’s all!
@Maria: Get a grip .. There are more troublesome issues in the world than crying for a bunch of dudes jumping on a trampoline ..
Plus, you are sick of ballads every year? As far as I remember from 2000 up until maybe 2008 or 2009 we had like 10% ballads .. while 90% were jokes, cheesy crapy music, over the top performances for music with no taste and a lot of plastic commercial dance rubbish…. I think you should do your homework better … or stop being so juvenile and finally grow up .. ballads don’t kill, honey!
are you people insane? WTF!! i’m sick and tired of ballads every year in eurovision. ”rise up” was the best song in this competition. besides, all of you dance in clubs with this kind of songs, so don’t be such a hypocrites!!!
I’m so devastated ….. so sad….. so much ate in here…. And nobody will like to see Spain winning…… Nobody wants us or like us….
I’m portuguese and i’ll be voting for Armenia as much as i can. Don’t expect any points from Portugal, though. People here don’t seem to be fond of this entry in general. Good luck anyway, Aram!
TOP 5 – ARMENIA. SWDEN. AUSTRIA, Switzerland ! Spain!!! Another songs are good! I don’t like The Netherlands! HOPE one of this countries will win!
NETHERLANDS!!! VOTE SONG 24 they deserve it so much, a pure and honest song! 😀
Hi everyone! YYYYIIIIPPPPIIIIEEEE! Tonight is finally the night: the grand final of the 59th Eurovision Song Contest 2014 live from Copenhagen! If it’s up to me, the scoreboard may look like this tonight: 01. Norway / Austria / Sweden (I really can’t choose) 02. Norway / Austria / Sweden (I really can’t choose) 03. Norway / Austria / Sweden (I really can’t choose) 04. Russia 05. San Marino 06. Montenegro 07. United Kingdom 08. Spain 09. Romania 10. Slovenia 11. Ukraine 12. Netherlands 13. Malta 14. Italy 15. Hungary 16. Greece 17. Denmark 18. Azerbaijan 19. Armenia 20. France 21.… Read more »
Melissa J, Austria off cource reaceived a huge applause. You didnt realise that the half gay community of Europe was in the stadium?? But on Saturday will vote people that are not engaged in eurovision so much and maybe a beard lady will look weird to them. Anyway, I think that Austria had a great performance and i wish all the best!

I’m an Armenian, if I didn’t like Aram MP3 it is not my fault, for God’s sake we are here to vote for the best song, not the best person of that country. Put the politics aside, open your eyes, choose the one you think deserves, and stop homogenic attitude.
I don’t think either will win, just going by the audinence in the stadium. Conchita got the most applause out of anybody. During her interview, they had to stop several times because of the audience. To me, that says she has a pretty good chance of winning. Also interesting to note: There were a lot of Hungarian flags in the arena during Semi 2…
Armenia will win
ARMENIA TO WIN!!
good luck from ireland.
Some people are complaining about the poll!!! It is a poll guys and depict what the majority like!!!! If you wanted something else, why you didn’t vote for it??Stop saying that the poll is wrong!!!! Accept what the majority voted…. Seriously… Do you like Sweden this year???? A mediocre ballad and a blond girl shouting…. Just this… nothing more. I really like Armenia, the song is catchy but if i had to choose a winner it would be the UK. As far as Greece is concerned, the reaction in the arena is fantastic, without a doubt people go mad with… Read more »
Rossiya, Syria, France, Greece, Iran and USA are brothers of Armenians and will vote for Aram MP3. You not alone Hayastan.
Hungary will win tonight and ofc ill vote for them!!
I will vote for Hungary, they deserve the win! They always send the best songs and they newer win! Justice 4 Hungary!!!!
Ps: is it Aram’s bulge on the picture? :O :O
i don’t get the lyrics as i don’t know in which language he’s shouting.
armenian homo phobic comments is fascism!
@SWE That’s where you’re wrong. A lot of non-Armenians like it too, just check out the comment section under the youtube video of Not Alone.
It’s not because you don’t like it that no one else does or just Armenians do.
It is quite obvious that is Armenians that is voting on their own country. You can see Armenians everywhere trashing YT videos, FB fan pages, polls, etc… but there are very few non-Armenians that actually likes their song.
My prediction is that it will be a close race between Sweden and Austria, with the Netherlands as a dark horse.
pls vote for malta small island with no nighbours ..thanks europe ..
I’m from Greece. I want to tell Europian to vote for, I think we deserve it. It isn’t fair to vote only for our neighbours. If you look carefully,you will see and Greece at the map. If you want,don’t forget us!
I would like to see wiwibloggs do an article on how popular their site is in Armenia and Azerbidjan….
0 points to stupid armenia from Azerbaijan
to me i find the netherlands song not really that good i think it might be because i was brought up with country music and i have meard country songs much better than this but if you are not used to country music then you may think it is really good if you go opn youtube and find other country songs they are much better but i wouldnt mind the netherlands winning swedens song is boring and doesnt make sense it is so over rated i wont talk about the uk as my opinon will be biased as i came… Read more »

They will gets 12 points from Belarus and Armenia, 12 or 10 points from Azerbaijan, 4 to 10 points from Estonia,Lithuania, Moldova (thanks to diaspora), some points from 1 point to 5 points from Israel,Greece,Montenegro and maybe Finland.

MY LOVE AND POSITIVE ENERGY TO FREAKY FORTUNE AND RISKYKIDD.
RISE UP!!!!ATHENS 2015!!!!!
It will be a race between Austria and Sweden, mark my words.
funny how you explain your wantings for Armenia to don’t win from his ‘homophobic’ saying.
it’s not true that he said,and if so than it’s nothing but he just doesnt feel comfortable near Conchita and that’s all.
This is a song contest,and not a personality contest.Learn to judge the one who is the best.
Personally i dont like Not Alone as much ,but even if it would win i dont have nothing against it.Best of luck Armenia.. 12 pts from Albania
I think that the Common Linnets / The Netherlands should win! Its time for a change! Always singers screaming out their lungs. What we want is a real song, with singers with beautiful voices and a great style being able to tell a story with their music. Imagine how great it would be having Eurovision being held in Amsterdam next year! We’re super gay friendly (and whats more gay than Eurovision?) and its time to educate countries like Russia about respect and kick those medieval perceptions about homosexuality out of their brains! Oh and we have great gaybars as well… Read more »

Aram talking bullshit about Conchita Wurst! He explained that “Conchita Wurst way of life is not natural”.
A ESC in Armenia would be a violation of human rights!
