OGAE Poll 2021: Luxembourg gives 12 points to Lithuania

Their country hasn’t participated at Eurovision since 1993, but their song contest spirit is still alive and well. The next batch of OGAE Poll 2021 results comes from OGAE Luxembourg, who award their douze points to Lithuania. Another set of 12 points for The Roop sees “Discoteque” solidify its fourth place position, increasing its lead over San Marino.

The French-speaking nation also shared some love with their neighbours, awarding ten points to France’s Barbara Pravi. Meanwhile, the club of 28 voters award their bronze medal to Malta. Destiny picks up eight points.

Further down the scoreboard, OGAE Luxembourg are feeling the sugar rush. They awarded Moldova’s Natalia Gordienko her first points of the season.

Good luck to all but honestly I don’t want to pretend to be sweet and criticism doesn’t necessarily means anything wrong. Here is my honest opinion Lithuania… like a soldiers. No heart warming tune no soul San Marino…how many times we heard song like that in the past Cyprus.. screaming eldiablooooo eldiablooo I prefer Helena Paparazzou mambo but that was back in 2006 how many years ago None of the 3 entries I have mentioned related to current situation we are in, they don’t lead us to any sort of direction but rather eroticism used that you think eurovision is… Read more »

if Switzerland song is decent why it do not well in the Swiss charts? And France always bring these chanson songs and they never do well. Lithuania is entertaining.San Marino is a goog produced dance song.Cyprus also a good produced dance song.Malta is good produced and the singer is charismatic.

ALWAYS? In 2009, top 10 with a chanson and in 2015 not a good result, that’s true, but you can’t say ALWAYS, Jessy Matador, Amaury, Anguun, Amandine Bourgeois, Twin Twin, Amir, Alma, Madame Monsieur, Bilal and Tom Leeb can’t agree with you, sorry.

If you don’t see the soul in The Roop song or heart warming message , then you just simply don’t understand the song. It is nothing wrong with that – everyone has their own understandings and tastes. I personally see the whole of it , plus the entertainment bit which I so much needed and a good quality performance. I personally don’t enjoy songs with “screaming for help” message..

Seriously the UK still has no points? Some of these songs that have points are worse. Like really Estonia and Denmark get points? ? I don’t understand ?

Oh yeah, it only makes sense if douze points battle is between Malta, France and Switzerland. I mean, they cannot even support each other – it’s like fans of Barbara could rip off Maltese fans’ heads and vice versa just because they have different taste. And that proves you why THE ROOP is here to save the day – dance alone because damn, gurls, you lost some communication skills during the pandemic.

OGAE Luxembourg should try and persuade their broadcaster to get back into Eurovision.

I’d be lovely to see them back but I don’t want to see any other broadcaster taking the Cyprus/San Marino route. I can’t remember confirmation on Andorra’s return in 2022 but if they do and take the same approach as San Marino …

They have a bigger population than Malta, and Iceland. I’m sure they could find luxembourgish singers to represent them though. If Malta and Iceland can, then I’m sure they could too though.

I agree with you. They used to take French singers in the past. Times have changed, I know, but I would not be that optimistic. Songwriting, staging, choreo are still essential, and I don’t like shortcuts.

Iceland, among the smallish countries, is an odd example in Eurovision because their Söngvakeppnin is so deeply rooted in their culture.

About Cyprus and San Marino’s route, you mean that they spend all their government’s money on Eurovision? If so, I have thought about that as well but we certainly don’t want to lose those two…

No, I didn’t mean that about San Marino and Cyprus. I don’t want to loose them either but I wish they did things differently than in the past years. So they are already “lost” in a way but still there.

Ha ha, don’t forget they finished 4th in 1974 with a Ralph Siegel composition. Plus c,a change?! And they tended to rent in singers, for example, Ireland’s Geraldine Brannigan in 1975 who couldn’t speak French but performed the song phonetically. From memory she was the first act to receive 12 points under the new system. There was also an American lady in the late 80s whose French pronunciation was a little erm American (lol)

I didn’t know 🙂 If someone there in Luxembourg even considers a return, it would be nice if they started working on an act that is representative of their music.

I personally don’t see anything wrong with what Cyprus and San Marino do. Cyprus sends mainly Greek singers, but there are very close ties between the two countries. Also, San Marino did send a legit Sammarinese person 4x, but it was the same person, which is why they branched out. I don’t see anything wrong with them sending Senhit. She’s Italian and from Bologna which is just a couple hours from San Marino, maybe less.

The big problem is that Luxembourg’s current EBU member broadcaster is primarily a local news and current affairs channel, completely different from the one that participated in Lux’s ESC heyday. They don’t normally do big entertainment shows, and if they did, it would be local, not international.

So the only country that has voted for Moldova in this entire poll so far isn’t even in the actual Eurovision? Not the best of omens for Natalia.

I don’t think OGAE poll is a good indicator for actual results. Many songs that scored 0 points here came in top 10 in Eurovision

OGAE means nothing. It’s just Eurovision fans voting for their favourite songs… I don’t know why they get so much coverage on Wiwibloggs.

But right now there is a lot happening , read the daily digests and see if you would want a more detailed article on any of those things instead of the OGAE poll.

Maybe you’d like to know what the Norwegian preview show or the Icelandic show thinks. Everything is a maybe…..

It’s a Eurovision blog. What would you prefer their coverage to be of? The illegal drug trade in Columbia? NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter?
