Greece's Stefania is your favourite Eurovision 2021 returning artist

It’s the eve of Eurovision fortnight. Tomorrow seven acts will take to the Rotterdam 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.

At the start of April, we asked y’all to vote for your Eurovision 2021 favourites before rehearsals. After counting a total of 36,426 votes for 39 acts, the results are in.

Poll: Greece’s Stefania is your favourite to win Eurovision 2021…before rehearsals

She’s proving to be a popular poll topper in these pages, including yesterday’s semi-final two rankings. And Greece’s Stefania continues his streak today. The “Last Dance” singer picked up 4,009 votes, that’s 11.01% of all votes cast. That’s almost 750 more votes than her nearest rival.

Taking silver is Malta’s Destiny. The “Je Me Casse” songstress scooped 3,261 votes or 8.95% of all votes cast. Destiny might not be top here, but she’s currently the favourite with the bookmakers.

Taking the third and final podium spot is Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears. The “Tout l’Univers” performer amassed a tally of 2,453 votes or 6.73% of all votes cast. He’s remained a consistent favourite since his selection and is currently leading the annual OGAE vote.

If our readers are to be trusted, the rest of the top ten will consist of France’s Barbara Pravi, Croatia’s Albina, Italy’s Måneskin, Lithuania’s The Roop, Cyprus’ Elena Tsagrinou, Romania’s Roxen and San Marino’s Senhit.

Greece is a good song, but it will not win. These polls are a bit silly because artists can direct their fanbase and skew the polls.

Can someone explain to me why this Greek entry wins every poll its involved in on this site? It’s not reflected on other ESC fan sites and certainly not in the betting odds. I’m very confused.

If true, Stefania is a smart saleswoman and a fierce competitor. It’s very helpful to have a loyal fanbase for a competition like Eurovision.

Besides, I’m willing to bet other artists are doing the same.

I can’t recall Greece doing well in any of these polls or the betting odds for a long time. It’s #11 on the OGAE Poll, and #11 in the betting odds, and #10 in the betting odds for a top 10 finish. Overall, a good sign.

I think much of this is due to Stefania’s charisma. Not so much the song itself, but rather the artist is very likable.

Completely agree. Cos some year is turning of betting odds winners but again other years betting odds were so wrong.. Elena Fureira was 16 in the polls and betting odds and nearly won the trophy and there are many many other examples. Many things will change after the rehearsals and especially after the semis.. Then we will have a better view.. Why not Stefania or any other good song to win?? People should get over themselves, chill, breath and stop been nasty all the time.. If she wins she worths it cos she has got talent, great song and voice.… Read more »

Dutch children are probably gonna watch the grand final and ask their parents to vote. The Junior Songfestival (what Stefania is famous from) always asks the Dutch kids to vote for the Netherlands in Junior Eurovision a hundred million times. They’re probably gonna be like ‘Oh mom, Stefania must win, can you vote for me please?’

In terms of malta coming 2nd, again, although each song could have a different outcome to its predecessors, Malta for the last five years have not done well with televoters. This has either resulted in non-qualification or a low placing in the final. Although each song is ofc unique and has the chance to have a chance of success in the competition, I don’t see Malta getting a very high televote. It can do well in terms of votes but in terms of placing, I don’t see this being incredibly high (televotewise). That’s why I think Malta won’t win. I… Read more »

As a Greek myself, although I like our song and think we have chances to do good, I don’t believe we can win. For now imo France, Italy or Switzerland have the highest winning chances and I would be thrilled if one of these three actually wins.

Yes I see your point. I believe Switzerland has the lowest chance out of the three countries I mentioned. I still consider them a favourite though because I expect a nice staging. Perhaps if their staging is different than Arcade, the similarities of the two songs will pale in comparison.

If I’m not mistaken, I think Gjons staging is supposed to be different to Duncans. I don’t exactly know what it will be but there’s been multiple mentions of him not having a piano on stage.
