Rehearsals for Eurovision 2017 start in little over a week, but before then, there are more points from the OGAE Poll 2017 to come in. Next up is OGAE Malta and OGAE Denmark, who have some love for Israel and Australia, respectively. Let’s a take a look!

OGAE Malta gave their 12 and ten points to overall favourites Italy and Sweden. But their eight points went to Israel, the highest individual score IMRI has received so far. Malta also had seven points to give to Denmark, with Anja’s song proving to be a favourite.

OGAE Denmark also revealed their votes. Their top three went to overall favourites, with Italy, Belgium and Sweden picking up the 12, ten and eight points. Denmark also had some love to give to Australia, with five points heading down under. And the feeling is mutual — earlier in the week OGAE Australia awarded Denmark four points.

Half the OGAE clubs have now revealed their points, and in the overall scoreboard, Italy holds the lead with 239 points, Belgium is in second with 162 points, while Sweden is closely in third place with 156 points. Denmark is now on 29 points, and now ranks 11th overall, while Australia has taken a big leap from 26th place to 21st.

It is really beyond my comprehension as to why UK only has 1 point. That song is beautiful, Lucie knows how to sing, and the lyrics send a wonderful message! This song is in my top 5!

My top 10 favorites (this is not at all a prediction) are in this order:
1. Finland
2. Hungary
3. Italy
4. United Kingdom
5. Portugal
6. Azerbaijan
7. Estonia
8. Romania
9. Lithuania (say what you will but I even like the yeah, yeahs)
10. Australia or Israel. It’s a tie for me.

Never listen to OGAE
They do not predict the continents views, just a minorites.
Jamala didn’t even come top 10 last year with OGAE and she won!!
It’s still all to play for… and i for one am very excited!!
Big love for wiwibloggs x

Shame to see Serbia, Czech Republic and Ukraine all receive nothing yet. While none of them make my top 10 they are all in my top 20 at least, and I don’t think any of them deserves nul points.

Dida

Except Serbia who’s song is ok-ish (not so sure about the live version) the other two, Ukraine and Czech Rep. have the worst song of the year. Who would vote for that? Only a minority would vote for them, and obviously it won’t be enough. There are big chances for Ukraine to be like Austria 2015… Last place (0 points)

Armania should have won last year. I got goosebumps from the intro with the fires and the holograms were cool.
This year I hope Italy as it is a country everybody loves and is good after the mess we had in Ukraine. Would of course love Portugal too but I don’t believe they have a real chance.
(Despite enjoying Sweden I hope they don’t win again)

Old fashioned songs don’t usually get votes…. But don’t worry, Romania, Israel, Bulgaria and other modern songs will receive plenty of votes, will pass the semifinal and will rank well… Life is sometimes unfair, huh?…

In the end everything will be very different, like last year when until the last moment everybody thought that Russia won, and when it was announced that Ukraine won, everybody was so happy, like that was all they ever wanted.

You sure? Germany is a candidate for the last place in the Grand Final, for the 3rd year in a row… Not sure about Austria and Montenegro and their chances of qualification (although I love Slavko’s song more)… Same thing about Norway, though may qualify (50-50 chances)

Because they read the same playbook that Mørland and Debrah (Norway 2015) read, on how to sell a song like this. They are 8th on my scorecard after 2 evaluations.

Italy is going to win the OGAE poll for sure!
Will it win the contest? I hope so!

In this top, I would probably switch Israel and FYROM with Azerbaijan and Armenia. But nothing is certain.

The actual result may be different than this.

I don’t understand why so many people like the Armenian song. It’s so boring.

I would definitely have Cyprus much higher. If OGAE were to judge the live performances instead of the studio versions, Cyprus should easily be in the top 5. Hovig’s live performances in Amsterdam & Madrid were amazing, he rocked that stage! Thank goodness the final Esc is judged on live performances & live vocal ability. Then I could not see Belgium or Bulgaria scoring as high as in this poll.

Did you saw Blanche live in studio in ” Van Gils & frieds”. She sang her song only with piano. It was beautifull. So pure!! I know that a lot of you see the live performances in Londen,etc. This is not the same. All the singers were nervous. How gonna respond the ordians… this year there are a lot of good songs. The most importent thing is: how is the song in Kiev on stage,background,lightning,camera.voice…… Let the best song win!!!!

Guys, relax… These annual OGAE polls are ridiculous…. Nothing to do with reality, with the semifinal qualifiers or with the top 10 in the grand final… Iceland 2014 Pollapönk – No Prejudice = OGAE score 7 points | ESC result: 15th (58 pts) Belarus 2014 Teo – Cheesecake = OGAE score 8 points | ESC result: 16th (43 pts) Latvia 2015 Aminata – Love Injected = OGAE score 0 | ESC result: 6th (186 points) Georgia 2015 Nina Sublatti – Warrior = OGAE score 7 points | ESC result: 11th (51 points) Armenia 2015 Genealogy – Face The Shadow =… Read more »

The OGAE poll is not supposed to predict anything. One can only wonder by what standard you judge it to be ‘ridiculous’ or having ‘nothing to do with reality’. It measures exactly what it’s supposed to measure.

If it’s not supposed to predict then what’s the purpose of the polls? It means they are useless…

Racal

The name “OGAE poll” should give you a hint about the purpose of the OGAE poll: it’s a poll for all the OGAE fanclubs all around the world to vote for the songs they like, nothing more, nothing less. No one ever said it was supposed to predict the actual ESC; only Eurovision counts and obviously the final ranking will be different from the OGAE’s (just like it’ll be different from the bookies ranking, the Wiwi jury, the online polls, etc.). It just gives an indication of the fan club’s preferences, that’s it. Still, over the last 10 years, the… Read more »

You are right. Why are they so covered is it means nothing?
Slow news day. If OGAE are just some people that say much less than is said in the comments section, then why are we reading what they say?

Denis
Guest
Denis

It’s not that useless, it shows who the fan favourites are. Nor is it a poll either, it’s only fan voting.
It’s not meant to predict a winner(nothing can predict a winner). The final ranking will be different than the OGAE voting, but it’s safe to say that there is a bigger chance for a winner to come from OGAE top 5 than bottom 5.

In the end this is only ranking fans favourite songs. They aren’t pretending they are predicting anything

Lemoni

This is not good enough. That way I can predict too that Slovenia or San Marino will not win this year, but look at the statistic above how wrong they were many times.

Monifa
Guest

They didn’t predict Georgia qualifying last year, yet they did. And Slovenia may surprise everyone and qualify, thanks to the juries…

Stan
Guest
Stan

so every year, they get some wrong, but not even that many… Like Georgia 2016: they didn’t really get that one wrong.

Mei Feingold was out of tune, Greta Salome a staging disaster… Those things are missed by a poll that mostly based on the studio versions. OGAE are fans of the festival and they bias towards traditional Eurovision songs. I’m very surprised that Belgium is scoring any points at all this year…

Robyn never talks about France and the fact that Requiem is doing a good performance in this poll, but apparently only the top three is important for you…. We have impression that France doesn’t exist here… a little bit unfair

E.Scot

E.Scot

But if she added a mention of France in the 3rd paragraph (which is where i’m guessing your problem is) then you can equally say she is ignoring Estonia. If she mentions the whole top 5 then why not the whole top 10? For the sake of efficient delivery and the flow of the article a line has to be drawn somewhere and while Triana Park are confused as to where it should go I for one think highlighting only the traditionally medal winning positions is perfectly acceptable. The full list of results is given f so people can see… Read more »
