The points for the OGAE Poll 2017 continue to flow in. OGAE Australia has made its debut (g’day!) with one of the larger OGAE votes so far at 77 members. Points have also come from OGAE Cyprus who have kindly put neighbouring Greece on the scoreboard this year. There are no surprises at the top, with Italy, Belgium and Sweden still in the lead.

OGAE Australia‘s top points went to general poll favourites — 12 points to Italy, ten points to Estonia, and eight points to Sweden. Australia’s ten points to Estonia is equalled only by the ten points previously awarded by Baltic neighbour Finland. The biggest surprise from down under is the single point awarded to Azerbaijan, giving Dihaj’s “Skeletons” a total of nine points.

Over in the Mediterranean, OGAE Cyprus also gave its points to poll favourites — 12 points to Italy, ten points to France and eight points to Belgium. Cyprus’s six points, however, went to Greece, which finally put Demy on the scoreboard. Demy is a well known pop star in Cyprus, so it’s no surprise there was love for her there.

On the overall scoreboard, the top seven songs remain solid, with Italy, Belgium and Sweden continuing their reign of first second and third. The only big change on the scoreboard is the introduction of Greece, with Demy’s six points putting Greece above six other countries.

Thirteen countries are yet to receive any points from OGAE clubs, but with more than half the OGAE clubs still left to vote, anything could happen.

And there is no comparison to Rybak. Rybak is an artist, he plays violin, he is proffesional musician. Portugal is amazing. Austaralia is average but not bad. And Bulgaria is weak and overrated.

Not to be always the Italian watch dog, but if the poke was referred to Francesco I have to say this: Francesco can play perfectly guitar, drums, piano and bass (plus a lot of other instruments more amateurishly). He write his songs (or co-write them) and I mean both music and lyrics, and he write for others (also important ones), he even wrote the whole soundtrack for a movie. He opened the concerts for Oasis, Stereophonics, Anastacia and Simply Red (plus other important italian artists). He is doing this job professionally since the age of 18, even if the fame… Read more »

Oy! No points yet for Germany and Spain, and the U.K. is just getting on the board. This is looking like another disaster in the making for these 3 countries, and Germany can ill-afford to be last for the 3rd-straight year.

Heads are definitely going to roll like bowling balls the Sunday after the contest.

That is impossible, even if Cyprus wanted, because the illegal government in the north doesn’t even recognise the Republic.

@Racal/L’oiseau, you like to provoke with the purpose to be able to cry that you were abused. This situation you are in now, is exactly what you were trying to start for so long. Right now you are laughing in front of your computer, because this is what you were pursuing since two months ago.

Racal

I’m sorry but who are you and what in the world are you talking about? I don’t feel abused and I’m not in any “situation”. For 2 days (and not “two months”) I’ve been posting to call out all the hateful comments under several articles, is that what you refer to as “provoking”? I challenge you to copy/paste here any mean comment that I have posted, please: be my guest.

Cheers. 😉

On a related but slightly different story. We are in France now and were checking a local toy shop. In the midst of shopping, I heard Frans’ ‘If I were sorry playing there’. So one year on and supermarkets across Europe are still playing the tune. Where was Frans in last year OGAE poll? Why does OGAE poll even matter?

And from what you know what is all over Europe? I travell trough Europe, I listen to the radio and I have never heard Frans and his song. In the media I nwever saw a notice about Frans. So do not write nonsense that he made carrer in Europe. He is not a star.

Any comments made by the same nickname than mine are false (my original has a blue picture) So whatever is said in my behalf is not my doing. That happened in other wiwi posts (see San Marino, where wiwibloggs erased that comments). From now on I am not using it any longer.

Minus Estonia and plus Armenia, and those are the 8 best songs this year. Any of those 8 has chances to win, it will all depend on performance/staging details. Italy overrated, Belgium risky, Sweden strong, France enjoyable, Bulgaria likable, Portugal adorable, Macedonia fresh & catchy, Armenia unique.

Estonia will be in final in final from 10 to 14 place thanks more to televote than juries.
I think dark horse and surprise in final will be Denmark and The Netherlands thanks to juries point , my predicicton both in TOP 5 with juries Denmark on 3 rd place and The Netherlands on 5 place.
My prediction TOP 5 with juries 1.Belgium 2.Sweden 3.Denmark 4.Australia 5.The Netherlands

Agree I m also surprised that Albania ,Serbia is still with no points, also surprised that The Netherlands and Moldova also have no points.
I think that 3 of this 4 countries wili go to final and one to be in TOP 10 . I predict Serbia,Moldova and Netherlands in final, maybe even Albania (they have strong semi final) and The Netherlands in TOP 10 from 8 to 10 place in final thanks to juries.

Want to know what i think? If all world OGAE’S are like Spain’s this poll has no value at all. Spanish OGAE is a sort of restrictive male sect which has done everything to ruin Manel Navarro’s candidature spreading all kinds of rumours & lies never proved though the harm has been done. Barei & Ruth Lorenzo had to stand up against them in order to stop the bullying that young Manel has been submitted to by these “machos”. Just because Mirela their diva could not get her way to the Eurofestival after four failed attempts. Believe me, if this… Read more »

Either you are a child or a highly ignorant adult. Its nice that you can see the positive side of things but remember Ignorance is not always blissful. And you may feign ignorance here but when alls done and you are left to ponder youll come to terms with the truth and hope that RTVE knows that corruption will never pay in the long run.

As the article said, Demy is very popular in Cyprus. It is about geography and culture but not a simple issue of voting for whatever your neighbours are. Culture crosses borders. That’s not a problem.
