OGAE Poll 2021: Malta's Destiny wins with "Je Me Casse"

After a trip to Malta yesterday, we’re off to another sunny Mediterranean island today. The annual Eurovision OGAE Poll 2021 continues with more results coming in from OGAE Cyprus. Approximately 24 hours after Malta sent them their douze points, Cyprus is returning the favour and sending 12 points to Destiny.

In second place with the club of 41 voters is France’s Barbara Pravi. “Voilà” picks up ten points. Meanwhile, current poll leader Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears receives eight points, taking his overall tally to a very neat 100 points.

OGAE Poll 2021

Votes from OGAE Cyprus

  • Malta — 12 points
  • France — 10 points
  • Switzerland — 8 points
  • Greece — 7 points
  • Romania — 6 points
  • Sweden — 5 points
  • Italy — 4 points
  • Croatia — 3 points
  • Azerbaijan — 2 points
  • Israel — 1 point

OGAE Poll 2021 leaderboard — 23 April

While Switzerland is still in the lead, Gjon’s Tears’ overall continues to fall ever so slightly. He’s now just 15 points ahead of France’s Barbara Pravi in second place. The fresh set of 12 points sees Malta leapfrog Lithuania and San Marino to secure third place. A pair of duckeggs means that The Roop and Senhit’s position on the overall scoreboard remains unchanged. Though these few countries are close at the top, there are still 32 clubs left to vote in the OGAE Poll 2021 — so anything could change.

1. Switzerland — 100 points

2. France — 85 points

3. Malta — 74 points

4. Lithuania — 65 points

5. San Marino — 62 points

6. Cyprus — 57 points

7. Sweden — 33 points

8. Italy — 30 points

9. Azerbaijan — 28 points

10. Croatia — 16 points

11. Ukraine — 14 points

12. Romania — 13 points

13. Greece — 12 points

14. Iceland — 10 points

15. Finland — 8 points

(=) Serbia — 8 points

17. Israel — 7 points

18. Denmark — 5 points

19. Estonia — 4 points

20. Bulgaria — 3 points

(=) Norway — 3 point

22. Russia — 1 point

Countries that are not listed are yet to receive points from any voting clubs. 

Between now and Sunday 2 May, half of the groups voting in the OGAE Poll 2021 will reveal their points one by one. Then, the remaining groups will announce their points at the same time on Friday 7 May in a grand final video spectacle.

What do you think? Will anybody overtake Switzerland? Who will win the OGAE Poll 2021? Sound off in the comments below.

Doris with her usual hate. It seems there is something personal involved here. Why should one care if Cyprus decides to give its 12 points to another country rather than Greece? But everytime Malta is mentioned Doris pops up with her hate.

They are going to post an article on every country’s votes individually like they have done so far. Why stop in the middle. If you’re not interested you don’t have to read them.

I’m not sure. We already won JESC. Winning the adult version will cost to much money. I think that my country will ask in private to the jurys to give less points to Barbara and please before saying that it’s fake news, ask yourself why, in most edition, the host country finishes last for the jurys ( except Sweden 2016, but Sweden and jurys…). Because they cant’ do it two years in a row.

Exact. But from 1992 to 1994. No clip video. No promotion in a lot of countries. No fireworks. No chroregaph for five dancers. No special effects. No semi finals. 23 countries instead of 40. It was cheap to host ESC.

Ah oui, tu est vraiment un abruti fini en faite, qui ne sais pas de quoi il parle: les clips, les choregraphes, c’est pas le pays hôte qui paie, qu’il y est 23 ou 50 pays, ne change rien non plus, c’est pas le pays hote qui paie leur frais d’hotels etc…les effet speciaux ?? c’est les délegation qui les ajoutent à leurs frais à la scène, comme une options pour les voitures. Juste pour faire un parallèle, un concours eurovision coûte environ entre 15 et 20 millions d’euros pour les dernièrs, prix d’un film lambda français.

No man keep the faith! It’ll be something too, because for the first time someone wins Eurovision twice in 1 year.. Something that will probably never happen again.. The money will be sorted out, its gonna be fine.. France 2022..

Sorry i answer to his dumby in french. Mais quel gros abruti tu es !! Si la France ne veux pas gagner, elle refuse d’accueillir l’année suivante, ou mieux, elle ne participe pas. C’est quoi ce commentaire pitoyable ? Tu crois que la France peut pas accueillir un esc junior et adulte ? par contre les J.O de 2024 à plus de 6 milliards, c’est tout bon, évidemment !! Oui, certains pays ne veulent pas regagner l’année suivante, et envoie des chanson a faible potentiel, mais il n’y a pas magouille en coulisses. Par contre organiser 2 année de suite… Read more »

Well, if the French wanted to lose, they wouldn’t send such a masterpiece…

And, before you say that they couldn’t control the votes, if they were able to convince all European juries not to vote for them, then they would be capable to change their national final results as well!

I d’love to see France (my home country) winning this year, especially with this song… however I think it’s not our turn yet, but I’ll already consider it a win if Barbara ends up higher than Amir did, for us it will already be an achievement ^^ I can see Switzerland, Malta or Lithuania winning, but yeah, there’s certainly room for dark horse to take the crown too 🙂

I see what you mean.. But Voila AND Barbara are so impactful.. You know when your own country is so successful its hard to believe the level of possibility.. We had that in the Netherlands with the Common Linnets and Duncan Laurence and look what happened.. Manifest it, it is within the possibilities of this year.. Granted there are a lot of great songs like the songs you describe but I just feel that Voila is gonna make a huge impact on the final.. Looking at the amazing stage we have this year, she’s gonna deliver.. Go Barbara 🙂

Hopefully you’re right :P… But I keep telling myself it can go either way, be very successful, or… be completely overlooked by the televote. Nonetheless, I’m happy we sent her, it’s a song and performer we’ll be proud ouf no matter what, and it seems that the French are globally more supportive of this year’s entry than in the past (sorry for my bad English btw). As you say, Go Barbara 😀

France has a history of having slightly disappointing placements when they’re hyped up a lot pre-contest (2011, 2016, 2018) so it’s going to be interesting to see if this year breaks the pattern

2017 as well. I’m pretty sure I remember people thinking Alma would be really high, although I think that kind of fell once the chorus was changed to English

Idk why but I think that non of top 3 will win. The favs are not strong enough to be sure that one of them will take the trophy home. Something like in 2011 when we had our favs but non of them was strong enough and medium type of song won.
