On March 29 we asked our readers to vote for the acts they feel are most deserving to win Eurovision 2015. As of May 10 at 13:00 GMT, we had collected a total of 95,600 votes. At the moment seven acts have managed to crack 5,000 votes. Leading the way is Albania’s Elhaida Dani, the winner of The Voice of Italy. She’s earned an impressive 14,652 votes. She’s been a busy lady since our last update – releasing an Albanian version of “I’m Alive” and previewing her Eurovision outfit. Elhaida’s in it to win it!

Currently coming a distant second is our favourite WAG, Spain’s Edurne. Her boyfriend’s Manchester United may be struggling in the Premier League but she is slaying! Hanging with ambassadors, recording symphonic versions of “Amancer”, she’s werking it with 7,386 votes.

Italy’s Il Volo are hot on the Spanish señorita’s heels. At 7,147 votes, they’re just over 200 behind. Not only are the trio preparing for Eurovision, they also found time to release a new single “Canzone Per Te” and record a rap version of “Grand Amore”.

The other four members of the 5,000 plus club are Iceland’s Maria Olaf, Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw, Ireland’s Molly Sterling and Georgia’s Nina Sublatti.

At the other end of the spectrum we have Montenegro, Austria, Finland, Cyprus, Denmark, San Marino and Moldova. These acts all of these languish at around the 700 vote mark.

You can see the current standings below. This poll will remain open until May 22 — the day before this year’s Eurovision 2015 final. You can vote here if you haven’t already done so.

After 12 days (or should I say, 12 nights, deep in the early-A.M. hours), I have just finished my 3rd and final series of evaluations. As always, I use 10 criteria (5 for the song and 5 for the music video, or live performance for artists without a video).

These are my top 10, as we head for the contest:

9.66 Italy (9.60/9.72)
9.55 Montenegro (9.56/9.54)
9.55 Estonia (9.46/9.64)
9.54 Lithuania (9.64/9.44)
9.53 Romania (9.46/9.60)

Guys seriously you made me to leave a comment in this site! Is my first time that i comment in an esc’s blog, so PLEASE enough with this guy from sweden! Is ridiculous how many of you like this “joke” song. First of all the winner of esc should have a PERSONALITY, this guy has nothing, and also his thoughts about the gay people etc are completely disgusting! We should make a worldwide stars with eurovision! No winners that the just get lost after 1-2 years! The song just a pop trash, with a very simple melody. His voice one… Read more »

Last year Sweden and Armenia were real favourites, and the fight was between them,everybody knew that the winner will be one of them, but they didn’t win. I think the same will happen this time. I like Sweden song, but it will not win, sorry but I think Albania and Spain, Norway haven’t chances. In my opinion winner will be Australia or Slovenia. I like that songs. So, another possible winner for me is Armenia, yes I am happy honest, this song is enough cool, message is powerful and that’s why maybe it will win. OK, sorry if I have… Read more »

OMG! This top 3 is perfect!! (My favourites so far) but too much utopian at the same time! Overrated? I think not 1) Albania (my country): Perfect voice, powerfull and likeable song, charismatic singer. Remember in 2012 when we achieved a fifth place with Rona and her terrible song O.o Elhaida sings, Rona just screamed and I still wonder how that song did better than Nina Zilli (best Italian entry IMO) Pastora Soler (one of the most beautiful ballads I’ve ever heard) Ivi Adamou and the romanian group (I don’t remember the name right now) Two incredibily catchy songs.

I have a feeling Albania will win this year, It’s an unpredictable year with an unpredictable winner just like 2011 & 2007. Both years the predicted countries (Sweden, Hungary, Estonia in 2011 & Belarus, Ukraine & Russia in 2007) of those years either came close or just failed to do as promised so I can see a random country like as I said Albania or maybe even Norway could take the title in my opinion and I wouldn’t mind either country winning

I don’t think Albania will win, or that Spain and Iceland will break top 5 at all. I think the OGAE top 10 is quite reasonable, with some minor changes it could turn out to be an accurate prediction.
My personal top 10:
1) Italy
2) Sweden
3) Albania
4) Belgium
5) Spain
6) Slovenia
7) Azerbaijan
8) Israel
9) Montenegro

ITALY: It’s about strong vocal the song is nothing special it would even be worst without the 3 guys singing it
SWEDEN: It may not be as boring as Italy song but it is nothing special either, it’s fleshy fake I believe Mans would entertain audience to get decent position but sorry not a winner

The one said that ITALY and SWEDEN like Armenia and Sweden last year yes they will be top favourite before esc but not winner, I can smell it

The rank tells itself and it showing pretty much how the songs will be ranked. Albania is going to win and everything is clear here, Albania is being so much pormoted, so i think everything is clear about the winner. Spain and Italy will end up after Albania, Azerbaijan will be helped by turks (all around Europe) so it will end in Top 5, Slovenia will do well, Sweden will be crushed by jury votes, coz the song has nothing special just tech. Estonia will end up in Top 5 too. One thing I’m so sure that the only winner… Read more »

I just adore this song and believe it has a strong chance of winning. 2: Albania – She would’ve been my first but her live performances have been very disappointing. I can’t rank her any lower however. 3: Malta – I loved this song from the very start but my opinion had changed after the revamp. However after seeing it receive no points in OGAE voting, I was shocked so I listened to it again and… Read more »

I dont think Ireland will make the Top 10, its a brilliant song, truly magnificent compared to the over hyped songs, you know what songs I mean, but I just dont think it has enough love to warrant a top 10 position. Its underrated, but its not Sweden, If Molly was representing Sweden or Azerbaijan with Playing With Numbers, it would of course be on everyone’s top 10…which is sad. I hope she at least qualifies. The 60th contest, and Ireland’s 50th Eurovision entrant should be in the final.

Albania and Italy er very overrated. Opera will probably flop like all. Elhaida has a big chance to fail the high notes and the song begins to be a mess after that.

For people that saying a country should win bacause they never won it. That us so stupid. A country does not have to win because of how many wins they got but the best song has to win and in my opinion that is Sweden
Great song
Great singer
Great performance
