It’s a weekend points-stravaganza as the votes in the OGAE Poll 2017 continue to roll in. OGAE Norway, OGAE Portugal and OGAE Rest of the World have revealed their points, and it’s good news for Montenegro. Slavko has doubled his points, while the UK is no longer at the bottom of the scoreboard. Let’s take a look!

OGAE Norway was first to reveal their votes. They gave 12 points to Italy, ten points to Estonia and eight points to France. Neighbouring Sweden only received six points, while Slavko’s wild world of “Space” earned Montenegro three points from Norway.

Next was OGAE Portugal, who had overall favourites in their top three — 12 points to Italy, ten points to France and eight points to Belgium. Some more Iberian realness was served with six points going to Finland, and four points going to the United Kingdom, resulting in a huge jump in points for Lucie Jones.

Finally OGAE Rest of the World revealed their points, representing all the Eurovision fans outside of Europe and Australia. Their dodici punti went to Italy, their dix points went to France and their åtta poäng went to Sweden. ROW was impressed enough by Svala to give Iceland four points, while they also had a single point for Montenegro.

On the overall scoreboard, Italy still has a very comfortable lead with 275 points, while Belgium is in second with 184 and Sweden is closely behind in third with 177 points.

Near the other end of the board, Iceland has more than doubled its points total from three to seven, now putting Svala in 22nd equal place, while Montenegro has gone from two to six points and is now in 24th place. The UK has said goodbye to the bottom of the scoreboard and now has a total of five points in 27th place.

Ireland has given a point to Netherlands!!!! They beat Iceland to 10th place on the very last vote of the 50 voters, Crazy!!!

Of the others who haven’t got points – Germany came 16th. Slovenia came 28th. The rest were down the bottom.

Only Georgia, Lithuania and Ukraine got Nul points.

Italy is well on its way to getting a hundred points lead on the second place. The top 5 is already rock solid, there’s quite a sizeable difference in points between 5th (Estonia) an 6th (Bulgaria).
Speaking of Estonia, I continue to be astounded by their OGAE popularity. All the other top 5 songs were already known fan favourites, and while Estonia isn’t despised, it certainly has a lot of detractors. Maybe it really will be a dark horse (much as I hate it).

And I’m not writing everywhere that Blanche is overrated and that she has a particular voice, in my opinion not good for that type of song with that particular low notes!

There is some truth in that. Out of the top five, the other four countries all have good live performers. OGAE usually gets at least one of its top placings completely wrong. Am thinking it might be Belgium this year.

I don’t think she has bad vocals. She’s just not prepared yet for the big stage and to be in the Top 10 you cannot afford making mistakes.

I really love how OGAE Portugal has voted!
Some points went to U.K. luckily! Also my beloved Finland!
Top 3 was obvious!

I hope the poll result won’t be too far from the actual result! For me, Italy, France, Belgium together with Finland and Bulgaria have the best songs this year!

Also Estonia slays!! I really want this to be top 10!
Portugal also voted for the interesting Hungarian entry and Switzerland. Azerbaijan got 1 point!

I really love what Portugeuse fans voted!

It is not a science that who wins OGAE polls won’t win eurovision. And btw there are some exceptions that makes your theory more nonsense: Rybak 2009, Loreen 2012, Emmelie 2013 just to do some examples! In your opinion this song is cheap and you don’t like it, but as we can see from results (the first in Eurovision history to reach 100 mlns viwes on YT before the show, first in odds, the first one in Eurovision history to gain triple platinum before the show, the most radio transmitted song in Europe in these weeks) he actually has a… Read more »

I completely agree… all 4 artists are such good acts and songs. And the lead of Italy is just insane…. I would say that ESC has an identity crisis and doesn’t even know it. Also the OGAE poll–who knows what political dynamics work behind the scenes….

…”political dynamics”? You’re in a totale paranoia!!!

Eva M.

Political dynamics is a very broad term… I am not talking about conspiracy theory, simply that you have to understand a structure or an organization to understand how decisions are made or why there are only 20 OGAE clubs, when there are 43 countries… or what the hell is the vote of “the rest of the world” and how it is calculated…. If you see paranoia in my comment, it is because of you, and not the comment.

Still stunned by the popularity of Estonia’s entry, but, hey, good luck to them. I’m more surprised that the Netherlands are yet to receive a single point and the UK is languishing down at the bottom of the pack. I don’t think this poll is necessarily going to be reflected in the final results; sadly, I’m less and less convinced that Belgium will even be in the final looking at the recent live performances.

Alison

I keep finding myself humming Verona despite not listening to it very often so there must be a strong hook in there! I do quite like the song but I found their national final performance a bit dull.

Colin
Guest
Colin

I think that Top 5 are more than obvious at this point. I mean, it’s a toss between Sweden and Belgium for a second place, but they will form a top 3 with Italy in the front. I am glad Finland is so high and I am also glad UK moved forward. Out of 0-pointers, I’d like if Moldova and Malta receive at least something before this is over.

escfan

escfan

France can be in top three too

Colin
Guest
Colin

Technically yes, but less likely. Still, 4th spot is really good. Ukraine won last year from the 9th.

escfan
Guest
escfan

why less likely?

Colin
Guest
Colin

Because there is 25 points between them and Sweden and that would imply that in the next few countries France gains a lot and Sweden little to no points. Looking the pattern so far, it seams less likely. Still, good luck to France. I like their song more than the Swedish one.

I see nothing wrong with Robin, he is open, he speaks with everybody, or do you hate him because he is engaged ?
Don’t want to bring Gabbani in this, but really, on Eurovision site there are almost no videos that include Gabbani, why go to preparties if you don’t speak too much with international media?

gabbani for me is arrogant, he knows he is the favourite, and his moralist song don’t please me, but I have the right to give my opinion about bengston too, so I don’t like both that’s the life.

Fine, but I think Robin is a normal guy, nothing more and nothing less, and his personality is just fine.

Francesco doesn’t speak English very well but he tries!! And there are videos with him if you search for them! 😉
Anyway as we can see from his live performances videos that probably he doesn’t even need to speak English ’cause he bewitched the audience! He stole everybody’s heart! 😉
Deal with the fact he is the favourite and most of people (as this polls show) love his song!

You are definitely entitled to your own opinion but I do don’t see why you think Francesco is arrogant! I rather enjoy his personality. However, I do see where you are coming from with Robin. He doesn’t have much of a personality. At least not publicly, but that might just be his public face and I’m sure in his private life he is much different! 🙂

we have already the top 5 I think, good news for france and belgium but sweden….I can’t understand the hype about this song, if it wasn’t a sweden entry he would never get so much points, moreover he doesn’t know sing in live and I don’t like his behavior, his style, and how he talks and walks.

Denis
Guest

Well I can’t understand the hype with Portugal. I find that whole song genre dated, his style dirty, the way he talks annoying and I can’t understand what he’s singing about because I don’t speak Portuguese.
The difference is I don’t look down on people who do like him, it’s all different taste.

Maybe if some of “fans” on here, including you, didn’t go to verbal attack against anybody who dares to like Swedish entries as if it’s a mortal sin, you wouldn’t be attacked yourself. Like every time someone posts “Sweden should win” there are always people posting stuff like “you must be dumb” or “clean your ears”. No other entry gets that kind of response. So what do you expect us to do, just shut up and take it? I mean people don’t go around calling fans of Romania’s silly little yodel entry “dumb”, or calling fans of Germany’s tipped to… Read more »

Japp Denis! Vi brukar alltid gå bra. Men tycker att det finns så många anti svenskar bland ESC fansen. Om andra länder skulle skicka våra låtar skulle de hyllas mer. Så många som är missunnsamma och har nästan tänkt att de kommer kräva nästa ABBA för att en svensk låt ska få kredd!
Robin är bra, men trodde att det fakta att låten var från Sverige skulle sänka den till 5-10 plats!

Denis
Guest
Denis

Precis. Internationella fans har en hatkärlek till oss. De gillar våra låtar men är svartsjuka på att det alltid går bra för oss, och förstår inte varför det är så. Därför kommer alltid med saker som “det är billigt” och så. Och nästan verbalt attackerar andra som säger att de gillar Sverige.
