Duncan Laurence Netherlands Eurovision 2019
Netherlands – Duncan Laurence

It’s the eve of Eurovision fortnight. Tomorrow nine acts will take to the Tel Aviv stage for first rehearsals with 32 more following in the days to come. And as always, the early run-throughs could shake up everything. But for now, all we can do is look into our crystal balls or examine tea leaves.

On 13 March, we asked y’all to vote for your Eurovision 2019 favourites before rehearsals. After counting a total of 42,632 votes for 41 acts, the results are in.

He’s become a frequent poll topper in these pages, including yesterday’s semi-final two rankings. And the Netherland’s Duncan Laurence continues his streak today. The “Arcade” singer picked up 5,036 votes, that’s 11.81% of all votes cast. That’s over 1,500 more votes than his nearest rival.

Taking silver is Albania’s Jonida Maliqi. The “Ktheju Tokës” songstress scooped 3,484 votes or 8.17% of all votes cast. Back in December, Albania became the first country to select both its singer and song for Tel Aviv. And slowly but surely, Jonida has been gaining momentum ever since.

Taking the third and final podium spot is Italy’s Mahmood. The “Soldi” performer amassed a tally of 2,964 votes or 6.95% of all votes cast. He’s remained a consistent favourite since his Sanremo victory and even won the annual OGAE vote.

Mahmood “Soldi” (Italy 2019) Interview

If our readers are to be trusted, the rest of the top ten will consist of Armenia’s Srbuk, Switzerland’s Luca Hänni, Russia’s Sergey Lazarev, Greece’s Katerine Duska, Portugal’s Conan Osíris, Iceland’s Hatari and Malta’s Michela.

Elsewhere, Israel’s Kobi Marimi and Georgia’s Oto Nemsadze, who sensationally won the automatic qualifier and semi one polls respectively, must make do with less glamorous positions. The former comes 16th and the latter 19th.

I’ll say the Netherlands or Switzerland for the win, based on prior to rehearsals. Cyprus, Greece, Norway, Albania, Iceland, Italy and Russia will fight for Top 10. United Kingdom, Spain and France are dark horses and ones to look out for, especially the UK, I know it seems to be a “Bottom 5 finish” for the UK as it’s a “generic, X Factor’s winner’s single” as many of you will say but, with Michael’s vocals and personality and that the EBU/The Broadcaster don’t screw the UK over with the Running Order on the Saturday night things do look promising for… Read more »

As a young gay man from Middle East, loving somebody has always been a losing game for me and it will be.

In the song, “Arcade” is used as a metaphor. An Arcade is basically a hall with a bunch of impossible games like the claw. Duncan’s song is about loving someone you’ve lost (i.e. an ex or someone who’s passed). Let’s see if you can figure it out.

I don’t see Denmark not making the final. I think it’s an easy qualifier bringing the same type of energy as Portugal 2009, Malta 2013 and Switzerland 2011. There’s a niche that they satisfy. I think Ireland have the potential to bring a surprise again – but it’ll depend on presentation and Sarah’s charisma which is essential. Don’t discount Lithuania either – when they sing well they do well, and have Ireland and the UK to carry them across the qualifying threshold. Would love to see Azerbaijan, Romania and Armenia fail twice in a row as I don’t think any… Read more »

People, you have to understand that odds favourites don’t have to be peoples favourites. I am not Albanian, and I love Albanian song this year. It is my winner. I don’t like bookies favourites this year. So, why bookies favourites have to top every poll, I don’t understand. Why odds have to force my preference ? I am pretty sure that there is a significant number of people who don’t like Switzerland, Russia even the Netherlands. So why nobody says something about them, when they are at the top of polls, and if a under-rated song as Albanian song is… Read more »

Totally agree with you, Albania always sends good songs on Eurovision, but they are always underrated. This year Albania has a great song (native language, great vocal and ethnic music). That’s what Eurovision should be about and Eurovision should appreciate such songs, not to underrate them why they are from small or undeveloped countries, Eurovision exists to appreciate art from wherever it comes, not politics.

THE WINNER – Duncan

BIGGEST GROWER – Romania (I called it terrible, but two months later I can’t appreciate enough how BRILLIANT it is)

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT – Russia (so much hype for so little quality. This is probably one of Sergey’s weakest songs).

Philip

Duncan is THE CLEAR LEADER and nothing will change that. But the biggest GROWER for me – and I’m shocked to say this – is Romania. I started by calling it an “utter rubbish” and ended up having it in my TOP5 on last fm. The song is just so good that you eventually realise that. The biggest disappointment is Russia. So much hype for so little. I was one of those most excited for his comeback, but this song is not half as good as his solo repertoire. Really sorry he has to sing THIS.

I am happy to see that after all, a big part ESC fans in wiwi have actually some taste in choosing Duncan or Mahmood for the win (Albania doesn’t count obviously). People are growing up and out of the banger/bop dictatorship. Unfortunately still many people remain with no taste at all to choose Switzerland or Armenia, but hopefully this will change too.

I think it’s worth to mention that the show is a program that recycles guests every episode (2 regulars, 1 guest) and that it’s a Finnish Swede show as well and the mainstays are definitely past their 40’s so their music taste will definitely differ from a lot of us opinions since I assume the people who read Wiwibloggs are much younger.

Staging update: It has been reported that Katerine (Greece) will wear a white and she’ll have on stage a double sided tableau vivant, created for her in Tel-Aviv from someone who has worked for Lady Gaga and X-Factor UK. She will have 5 more girls with her on stage (3 vocalists and 2 dancers-actresses) The staging in general will be very theatrical, with pink smoke, much like the videoclip but more mature and bold and will allegedly be reminiscent to a rennaisance painting of Bosch with surrealistic elements (take a look at his “Garden of Earthly Delights”.

Sensationally , lol , atleast some acknowledgement that the results were not ‘Our’ results

Yes, it is, but not because of Croatia being 12th. I´m much more suprised at Albania being 2nd.

Yeah seeing a contender being 2nd is a surprise to you but a bottom 5 song is not. Whatever

I noticed a paradox. During OGAE voting a lot of fans were annoyed by club’s votes being all similar to each other and predictable. But when some countries’ placings in Wiwibloggs’ poll are slightly different from what the bookies predict, they say the poll’s rigged. Yet when the bookies’ favourite tops the poll, they complain that it’s a result of hype. I don’t get it.

Plus there are not the majority of voters who vote in the final.

I don’t know how many people vote for these polls… I didn’t, nor for this nor for the others, yes it’s my fault but I think these polls don’t always show the real taste of the majority of the people. Duncan is not my favourite even though he’s very good. my personal list is: 1. Italy 2. Portugal 3. Greece 4. The Netherlands Duncan is a very nice boy but risks to become a little unpleasant because he’s really too much overexposed, as it was the representant of Switzerland some times ago. We’re bored because it seems there is no… Read more »

That’s a strange thing to say. Because You placed Italy first and if there is one act (especially here) that is overexposed it is Mahmood.

I don’t think it’s true. Maybe also Mahmood is overexposed in comparaison to other countries, but sure not in comparaison to Duncan… see the results of almost all the polls, always duncan and duncan and duncan. Kobi marini won the poll as best automatic qualifier (sic!) , not mahmood… and do you think the best video was the duncan’s one ? But when there is duncan, people vote duncan, always. It is true that italians are not used to follow Esc so they generally don’t know these blogs or vote. It could be alsi because Mahmood didn’t attend a lot… Read more »

Duncan fans are slowly losing their minds. So desperate to keep the momentum that is going away. Iceland knows to be quiet these days.

Jonida has a great song and a great voice, but 2nd place seems too imaginary.

No need for diaspora for a poll. You can vote for your own country in a poll.

It would be fantastic if Albania would reach this result (2nd) Janida is a great singer and her song is epic, but i guess it will not happen , unfortunately…

I think you’re a bit overweight for the winner this year, a man did not do any trial, or anything like that, you already announced it as a winner. You kill the will to watch Eurosong.

remember it happened as well in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 16, 17 and 18!! The top favs in odds and fanpolls usually are the actual winners! maybe 2017 and 18 were some diff, Gabani was the ultimate fan fav to win prior the rehearsals but Sobral and in 2018 Netta became also huge fan favs in the last weeks towards the contest!! In 2018 only after the first rehearsals Cyprus became high in the tops. That Duncan or Mahmood are current favs, wont say they will win. The race isnt over yet!!

When i said y’all picking and choosing Duncan pics i forgot to add PERIOODDDT on it 😀 Keep the same energy when y’all write about Mahmood cause i keep seeing the same pic of him over and over again
