The vote for the 2019 OGAE Song Contest Poll results keep coming in. Five more branches of the OGAE fan network have cast their votes in the poll. The OGAE fan clubs from Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK received their points. The points haul put Estonia and Israel on the scoreboard, and saw Switzerland closing in on current leader Italy.

OGAE Hungary gave their top points to contest favourites Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland, strengthening the lead for those three. Hungary is the second country to give points to Slovenia, with two points handed to Zala and Gas

Over at OGAE Ireland, the top points were given to the Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden. There weren’t really any surprises in the vote, with OGAE Ireland going for the same favourites that have been raking in votes in the OGAE poll.

OGAE Italy gave their top points to Switzerland, Spain and the Netherlands, giving the Iberian nation its highest score yet. Italy also gave neighbouring San Marino five points and finally put Israel’s Kobi Marimi on the scoreboard with four points.

Unable to vote for itself, OGAE Netherlands top points went to Switzerland, Italy and Sweden. They generously gave neighbouring Belgium six points, doubling Eliot’s total, and they put Estonia on the scoreboard with two points.

One of the largest OGAEs, the UK branch had 243 fans voting. The UK gave their 12 points to Norway — unsurprisingly to anyone who saw the rapturous reception KEiiNO received at the London Eurovision Party! The top three was rounded out by Switzerland and Italy.

The overall total is still dominated by Mahmood, Luca Hänni and Duncan Laurence. But are the top positions about to change? With a score of 138, Switzerland is just one point behind Italy, making it possible for Luca to overtake Mahmood. However, OGAE Switzerland is yet to vote — and when they do, they won’t be able to vote for Luca Hänni, which could be enough to strengthen Mahmood’s lead.

The OGAE Poll is not considered an accurate prediction of Eurovision results. However, it does offer a strong indication of what songs are fan favourites and is also good at predicting which songs won’t qualify for the grand final.

Australia and Serbia dont have any points is a joke to me and will not happpen in real life. Both will qualify and at least top 15 in the final.

Last year, 2 of the top 10 failed to qualify, and in 2017, 3 of the top 10 failed to qualify. Which of the top 10 is likely to fall flat this time, depending on what we anticipate seeing on stage?

I take it that Switzerland’s recent record (since Sebalter in 2014) doesn’t give you much confidence in the outcome that the bookies and this poll are predicting, eh? I feel the same way. Luca will be extremely lucky if he finishes in the top 13.

Another poll in the UK, over at Scorewiz, had 159 people in the UK voting and the first 4 were completely reversed… so yeah, these fan polls are pretty useless. I have no idea who’s going to win, it’s a tough job being a bookmaker since there’s no clear favourite. They do seem to overrate Russia immensely though, neither fans nor juries seem to like it.

“OGAE Hungary” is not speaking for Hungarian people. This is just another bunch of gay guys who love divas and bops. I have seen a very big voting by Hungarian people, in which Romania was one of the top favourites. That’s what the real Hungarian people think. What you see here is an opinion of a small and highly biased group of people, who don’t speak on behalf of the nation.

I hope the rest of Hungary doesn’t say homophobic stuff like that.

Do you know the definition of “homophobia” or do you just assume that everything you don’t like to hear is homophobic?

Joe
Guest

I assume a dismissive attitude about “gay guys who love divas and bops” is homophobic, yes. I feel like the community should be embraced more in countries like Hungary when they’re afraid to be themselves.

I defend the gay people’s rights every step of the way, so I don’t need to be told where the line is. What I said here refers solely to the specific group of people who have made their music taste well known to everyone throughout the years.

Saying gay guys who love bops aren’t “the real Hungarian people” sounds very homophobic, James, whether you want it or not.

Marcelo

According to you, what is what the real Hungarians think? Are “gay guys who love divas and bops” not Hungarian enough for you? Is a Christian macho man more Hungarian to you? If comments like these are very common among Hungarians, then no wonder why you re-elected Orban and his party of cavemen.

I’m gay and I’m not nearly as sensitive as some people here it seems. He meant that guys from “OGAE Hungary” have very different opinion than majority of Hungary. It’s easy to tell tbh. Like, when was the last time Hungary send some ballad (not Joci if you count it as a ballad) or typical pop song to Eurovision? They have some etnic things, metal and rock songs, so I guess that’s what majority of Hungary like. So having nothing but pop songs and ballads labeled under Hungary flag really makes you think if these results properly represent Hungarians’ opinion.

Ogae poll is just a music video contest only, whose the rating is decided by people very very very very fans of Esc, totally in the Esc’s bubble, it can’t and doesn’t reflect what will happen in the real contest forcefully. Even if they manage to find the winner sometimes, all polls or other are just for fun, not accurate, cause based only on videoclips. Eurojurys seem a little bit more coherent cause they use jurors the same kind of jurors than in Esc for each countries, professional singers musicians or other related with the music and not persons only… Read more »

The OGAE are full of men who who just like boring repetitive pop songs like Cyprus and Switzerland and dismiss entries with brilliant quality like Albania. That’s why SWITZERLAND is above THE BOOKIES AND FAN FAVOURITE TO WIN, The Netherlands.

And lets not forget that these results will DEFINITELY not be the results in May.
Like Switzerland over The Netherlands, Denmark over Portugal. Australia receiving Nothing. I HAVE TO LAUGH.

OGAE= O-SHAME

Once again I can only see that something is ‘fun’ if there’s any actual fun being had. If you meant the members of the various OGAEs are having fun well then yes, I’m sure they are but why give their polls any more relevance than other eurovision fan clubs that are perhaps a little oriented towards dance divas of all genders? No, I’m not heterosexual and no I am not tone deaf either. The two do not go together and I feel like it’s a huge disservice to suggest they do. Wiwibloggs is not the place to leave this sort… Read more »

In any case this is a contest, a contest where only one wins: it’s “unfair” in itself, so take it easy. I consider little masterpieces both Arcade and Ktheju tokës, even they will be last placed.

in a “male ballad year”, Michael will have to shake what mama gave him to make an impress, otherwise he will sink just like Israel’s Kobi probably will. You can’t compete against Duncan, John and Lazarev if you have a mediocre song, so the UK better work hard on the staging issue.

I’ve never had much trust in OGAE but the fact Albania is getting almost nothing from them this whole year so far in the fanclubs? I’m really sorry but how.

albania 0 points and azerbaijan 7th place issa joke

Salem

Albania received literally 0 points in the OGAE poll last year, but still placed 11th in the final. Considering they’ve already received 2 points in the poll this year, I expect a top 5 for Albania in Tel Aviv lol 😀

Albania getting 0 points from Italy and San Marino getting 5… Is this the real life? Definitely just fantasy

Nvm

To the people downvoting without knowing s*it: Italian televoters have always given points to Albania ’cause 1. diaspora 2. some sort of “alliance” that Ita&Alb formed over the years, that strengthened to the max last year with Ermal Meta competing for Italy (12 points from Italy to Eugent). On the contrary, Italian ESC locals hate San Marino and I can hardly see it getting any vote, so ogae Italy’s ranking is the ultimate proof that is poll is bulls*it.

Leanne
Guest
Leanne

It’s not so much that Italians hate San Marino, it’s more a running joke on Twitter because they usually don’t give Italy top points despite the fact that San Marino is literally a small state in the centre of Italy. The opposite is also true, but I think Italy would give San Marino points if they chose to send a good, genuine song in italian for once (Italy didn’t vote in San Marino’s semifinal in 2013).

It’s like Esc two decades ago, always the same countries in top 5. Luckily eurovision nowadays is much more open and diverse.

Yes, OGAE is so predictable.
off topic : a few hours ago, Amar pelos dois sung by a girl in Romanians got talent. Because it’s too soon, I couldn’t find the whole song.

OGAE Poll 2018:
– Italy (13th)
– Switzerland (0 points)
– Netherlands (0 points)
– Norway (20th)
– Sweden (11th)
Literally none of top 5 countries in this year’s poll were in top 10 last year.

Weißbrot

I think what NickC meant is, that every OGAE voting from every country has the same top 5 this year (and all the other years).

Skiwalko

Oh, I see. Yeah, fans’ taste is pretty similar in every country, while public and juries can surprise from time to time, not counting diaspora and friendzone voting.

Una

I believe there’s heavy bias there. OGAE+betting odds=manipulation. Some people try to influence perception to some extent, then some songs/countries are heavily promoted, then mainstream media and social media keep propagating the favourites. Some people will vote for some songs just because they are everywhere, not meaning they are that good. So in my view it’s more than OGAE just existing or people taking it seriously. There’s much more to that.

Save your anger for things that are actually worth that energy from you.

This poll is meant to be fun and isn’t hurting any one, if you don’t want to take it seriously then don’t let it affect you like that.

I love the Swiss song, it’s my fourth fave. But I don’t want it to win. It’s a bit too repetitive. Italy’s song has a story. Best of luck from Malta

I already asked quite subtly and got no answer I should have made it a binary thing as complex as ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, shouldn’t I? Unlike OGAE polls which are just really bad at predicting stuff things like Brexit Party (not this one, the “real” one) do have me worried…
