Every year the “knowledgeable” press, a group of professional and–ahem–not so professional men and women, predict who they think will win the Grand Final.
This year the top honour has gone to the bearded diva Conchita Wurst from Austria, with 222 votes. Sweden’s Sanna Nielsen is in 2nd, with 199 votes, and the Netherlands, which people originally dismissed like no other, has crept into 3rd with 126 votes.
Hungary, Greece, the UK, Armenia, Denmark, Spain and Ukraine round out the top 10.
The press is least blown away by the acrobatics of the Azerbaijani entry, and the utter randomness of Germany’s. The two are tied in 25th.
