Will the OGAE Poll 2018 predict the winner of Eurovision 2018?
Not exactly. Members of OGAE – L’Organisation générale des amateurs de l’Eurovision – aren’t an entirely accurate representation of the 200 million viewers who tune in to the Eurovision Song Contest in May.
In twelve years, the poll has only accurately predicted the winner four times and the past two winners have both failed to make it into the top 5 at the Grand Final.
Francesco Gabbani, who won the poll last year, fell at the last hurdle and finished in 6th place last year in Kyiv. The poll’s runner up Blanche did however manage to make the top 5, finishing in fourth with her track “City Lights”.
