EUROVISION 2015: FAVOURITE ACT SO FAR RESULTS (MARCH 10)

22. Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät, “Aina mun pitää”: 79 votes, 1% (NEW)

Total votes cast: 11,888

Nina and Amber stay right at the top of the standings with Il Volo, whilst Edurne and Maria-Elena Kyriakou debut in the poll in the top five, though Edurne polled over 350 more votes than Maria despite there only being one place between them. Slovenia’s Maraaya and Ireland’s Molly Sterling both also placed in the top ten in their first appearance in the poll.

Lower down, there were big falls for the likes of Trijntje Oosterhuis and Lisa Angell – certainly, it seems the “ballad overload” that many have talked about on social media seems to be affecting some of the songs. Perhaps unsurprisingly though, it’s Finland’s Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät that placed last with a measly 79 votes to their name.

Our next poll will open shortly, but are you surprised to see Il Volo at the top? Can they win Eurovision 2015? Let us know in the comments section below or on our Twitter page.

I think POPOPERA is to diffucult to understand for the cultural level of ESC , then it depends from the age of the people to think a Country is a winner insted another one. Good Luck to everyone and don’t forget: THIS IS A SONG CONTEST NOT A WAR!!!!!

I don’t get the hype around Italy, for me it’a just another boring ballad. Denmark second last? It’s my number 2 at the moment.

Georgia, second? She’ll be lucky to get out of her semi. Not a surprise that Finland is last.

I just listened to Italy’s song and i really can’t understand why everyone’s talking about it. It’s one more italian super boring song. What’s so special about it? Half of the songs of the whole Melodifestivalen are better than Il Volo’s song(Im not a Swede) Totally overrated.

ll Volo is not like ll Divo. There is not one singer in ll Divo who is an Italian. ll Divo are much older men–ll Volo are barely in their 20’s. Michele Torpedine, their manager has been with them from the start of their career. He also made Andrea Bocelli famous. It takes a great manager to make an individual or group famous.

ll Volo are loved in the USA Italy and Latin America. While I realize there are some young people who don’t like or appreciate their music, they have become very famous. I doubt that these other singers will be popular outside of their own country. ll Volo has a strong team backing them. For those who don’t like their video, we do in the USA, because it depicts the movies we love. Go on youtube and see how many views they have received.

This poll does not matter……………………..”Grande Amore” is the nearest you are going to get to a song writing masterpiece in the ESC ever. Will be the number one favourite of the Juries, then it’s down to the televote. Il Divo are very well known and have fans all around the world. Just don’t be naive enough to compare this to France’s Amaury Vassili and “Sognu” in 2011. Chalk and Cheese, WOW and basically not wow!!

Malta’s entry will go down on the ranking with the new revamped unfortunate version..
Italia along with Estonia will gonna do great in the voting of OGAE fan clubs and are from the hot favorites to win the voting..

I dont like their promo video but the song is fantastic…their voices just amazing…. my favourite so far. Can you believe it..they have more than 17-18 mill. views with many grand amore videos…. and more than 13 mill. with the official one. My top 3 is ITALY first by far and then Spain and Greece.

Hey, just want to say that Loic Nottet’s song looks like its called “Rhythm Inside”, and a 30 second clip is here: http://deredactie.be/cm/1.2264994?view=popupPlayer

Obvs its most likely his Eurovision song, and it sounds like it’ll stand out! But since its no confirmation, I don’t want to say for sure

Italy may win. It is a powerful song, ideally for Eurovision. I don’t agree with a quite common opinion that this year’s edition has been weak/boring so far. Every year there are the same complaints. We have to remember that we haven’t seen the stage performances yet. Even though we have many ballads, there are really good or even great. There are only few songs which I don’t like. So it is at least a good year. I’m fond of (in random order): Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Poland, Iceland, Ireland, United Kingdom, Estonia, Slovenia, Cyprus, the Netherlands, Greece, Macedonia.

Well, italians are not really fanatics of ESC, I doubt here there are so many of them to pull the poll (LOL) but, like we learned many times, the first position in online polls often doesn’t coincides with the real winner. And most of all, as much “Grande Amore” is undoubtedly a good song sung by great voices, is far away from the typical ESC winner.

Italy are the winners so far. Though a few countries still have to choose. I don’t think any other song chosen has the chance to garner votes like Italy. Slovenia is growing on me though.
Forza Italian ????

@Gus’s Italy has more fans in different countries than Malta. I think we shouldn’t do predictions according to this poll. Remember what happened last year? Leader didn’t pass the semi.

Il Volo all the way. They sing like angels and the song is great. They have millions of fans around the world. They have charisma, are very down to earth and humble. They are the whole package. Three voices – one soul.

Italy is good, but it’s not spectacular for me. Doesn’t have that winning vibe around it, imo. However, we’ll have to see what they do with the 3-minute version of the song – hopefully they don’t cut out a good part!
