What do you think? Who will win the OGAE Poll 2021? Let us know in the comments below.
Hope Malta will win .
We’re not doing a How-big-your-country-is contest dear… it’s a SONG CONTEST! If the small guys happen to have a great song then justice should let them win!
The thumbnail gives me Kong VS Godzilla vibes
(I won’t even try to make any connections with one another)
The longer this goes on, the more I don’t like it. I actually think it’s disrespectful to the performers, and I hope they’re not following it. For anybody still to get a point, it can only ruin their enthusiasm. The contest is in May, not now. Have the poll then.
I’m probably taking this too seriously…
What’s INFE? This isn’t a hate message, I just really don’t know!
Me neither xd
Is there a kind soul that could tell us? 🙁
That did explain it, thank you! I usually only follow Wiwibloggs and then the official Eurovision site for my sources on these things so I’ve completely missed this before.
Ogae is a mess this year for sure
Another thing that strikes me as weird is that ogae clubs are such a small insignificant part of the eurovision fandom but they receive privilege in eurovision tickets every (regular non covid) year? I mean what if you just don’t feel like joining a club? Does that make you less of an esc fan and less worthy of tickets xD I feel like younger eurovision fans feel less of a need to join a club like OGAE because the internet is already giving us so many different ways of reaching out to other eurovision fans nowadays. Back in 1984 that… Read more »
Oh another point: It’s like an old boys club. The dutch Ogae rewards the tickets on the basis of how long you’ve been a member: long membership will be rewarded with more chance on a ticket(It literally says that 90%!! Of all their tickets will go to the oldest members). That means young people or eurofans who just decided to join have less of a fair chance on a ticket within the club that they probably never wanted to join in the first place if it wasn’t that they have the key to a trip to eurovision or not.
One thing to remember is that joining isn’t free, the fee might be a bit different depending on what club you’re joining.
Ridiculous and ageist…how unfair that somebody who’s been to 28 contests gets priority over somebody who would love to go to their first.
Bulgaria is way too low and Croatia is way too high.
Can we please lock in a cave from january to may OGAE members to stay away from the betting odds and some fake Youtube views. And just give them the songs. I’m pretty sure the results would be totally different
Thank you France, for giving my favourite song (and artist) first point 🙂
Go Leslie !!!
i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again
lesley roy is the best thing to happen to ireland since the 90s
In last night preparty he had the best vocals.
Voters of these polls are clearly biased from the bets.
They are trying to predict the winner only from the studio version of a song, not focusing on the live singing, stage performance and artist’s charisma.
What about Russia’s performance yesterday at the Spanish party? What about Romania’s? Its a top10 material, no?
yeah it sends me how they vote based on the betting odds. they do it every year. also congrats to france for being the first ogae club so far where more than 100 members voted
Belgium still having no points is comical. I’m wondering what excuses this fandom will come up with when Hooverphonic qualify with ease and get top 10 in the final. Surely won’t admit the ESC fandom has delusional and pop banger biased taste and will just say it was the staging that saved it. “Calm After the Storm” all over again.
The ESC fandom is not OGAE. Many here love The Wrong Place.
it’s not comical that belgium has 0 points, it’s tasteful. i’ve legit never seen anyone stanning the wrong song
Your name might disagree with it.
OGAE represent themselves, not the fandom.
Finally a point for Ireland ?? #Dublin2022
I really love both Switzerland and Malta, but I also want more other countries to get 12 points so it will not be focus on only 2 or 3 countries. Because it’s so many great songs and talentend artists this year.
That vote won’t be honest and fair anymore if the OGAE branches were acting that way. If they are voting for the same songs, it is simply a coincidence. Those ones are strong entries. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the others that aren’t getting votes aren’t good. OGAE branches can’t vote for everyone… and satisfy everyone. Keep that in mind.
Still not one single point so far for the UK…are we surprised??
No because I cant see The UK being among the top 10 with many people from the general public either.
12 points de la France pour la Suisse ! Quelle surprise. Et encore des points pour Malte, Suède et Chypre, vraiment ridicule
Thank you France…. from Malta
This voting gets super boring
You can choose not to follow it
5 points to Sweden (just because it is Sweden I guess) but 0 from France to songs like Greece or Bulgaria? Jeez…These ogae guys have some really serious issues. Infe voting looks more to the point. Ogae’s music taste reminds me that of my 60 years old spinster aunt.
Or maybe some people actually like the swedish entry enough to give it points? I think it’s more likely that people hate the swedish entry just because it’s Sweden.
I didn’t call anyone stupid. I say that their music taste is far from mine. Just look how many times in the past they had Sweden in top5 even when the song was an utter trash. People and especially OGAE tend to vote for Sweden that’s because it’s Sweden.
I love the face-to-face pic used for this article. It’s so cool and badass.
And I’m glad for Lesley to finally get points. I love her song.
Finally something we agree upon. Go leslie!!! There is only one way to go-o-o-uuu
Romania, Greece, Bulgaria ??!??! Where are they?
They are so underrated and I don’t get why
Romania is in 12th place. Normal 100%. Possible final range 15th-10th.
Greece is in 14th place. Normal 100%. Possible final range 17th-12th.
Bulgaria is a little underrated…but inside a normal range. Possible final range 20th-15th.
And top 3 is locked…with the exception of Italy, that can take the position of France.
I think these 3 countries can finished higher than these places. I feel that some of Romania, Greece and Bulgaria will lift up the song with the stage performance. I see those 3 as potential dark horses.
Delusion, convince yourself (again)
Well there are 39 countries and a top 10 can only includes 10 countries… so for sure some people will be disappointed…
Completly don’t get hype on Switzerland… Where is Greece, Romania?
jesus it took long enough for Ireland to get a point
Too long, I’d say.
I would say, FINALLY!!!
Where is United Kingdom, Belgium, Australia, Albania, Czech Republic?
In the bottom 5, most likely
Bonjour, la suisse))
Thank you France!
So nice to see someone actually remember Ireland. And also remember that there are other countries in ESC too, not just the same 7/8 the whole time.
OGAE voting is a fan wank. It’s completely disconnected with general public taste.
Oh I know completely I agree.
Do the OGAE branches claimed that their voting was representative of the general public taste ? Did they also stated somewhere that their voting had to be taken seriously ?
Not gonna write the answer to those questions, y’all can already guess it by yourselves.
OGAE poll has predicted two out of every three winners since 2006…so think on.
