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.

I like Ukraine and Romania much more than others. As for me, the winner of Eurovision 2014 is Mariya Yaremchuk

Please everybody calm down. These are just the expected results from a small group of people. It doesn’t matter what these people say. So DON’T get mad. Who knows, Armenia might win, who knows, Greece might win. Just PLEASE calm down, and if you disagree with these expected standings, let us know without caps lock.

My say on the matter: I like these standings, although I don’t believe Wurst will get 1st place ;).

This is a fucking joke. Spain is going to be despised once more. I guess Ruth Lorenzo should have showed some hair on her legs…… Why should Austria win instead of Spain? Where is the difference? Ruth Lorenzo has more power and her act is even more catchy and elegant!!!! Conchita is very good, but I just don’t get how Conchita can have three times more votes than Ruth…. We are talking about THREE TIMES more votes. It’s ridicolous. So I can only conclude that Ruth Lorenzo shouldn’t have waxed her legs or moustache, THIS WHOLE CONTEST AND THE VOTING… Read more »

Yes, you got it right, the best song. It does not matter who and which country will win today… or I am wrong?……. Well some of you certainly want to see their country and their own nation as the winner, that is already 100 % clear to me It is to all of us the same, or not? But I have a feeling that we will see the… Read more »
