In less than three weeks, a new Eurovision winner will make history. But as we journey to Turin 2022, the OGAE Poll 2022 continues unleashing more points.

Since the last batch, ten more clubs have shaken up the scoreboard with their votes, these being OGAE’s Israel, Denmark, United Kingdom, Armenia, Andorra, Poland, Iceland, Serbia, Germany and Portugal. With 65% of the votes now distributed, we have a new leader – Sweden’s Cornelia Jakobs.

In fact, Sweden has featured prominently in this new batch of points. Seven clubs – Israel, Denmark, United Kingdom, Armenia, Poland, Iceland and Portugal – have awarded their douze points to Cornelia Jakobs, who had only managed two top scores previously. So just as in Eurovision, it’s important to wait until the end as things can indeed change.

On the other hand, OGAE clubs Andorra and Serbia gave their 12 points to Spain’s Chanel. Meanwhile, OGAE Germany sent its top score to Italy’s Mahmood and Blanco.

How do these votes change the overall OGAE Poll 2022 scoreboard?

Tables have turned. Despite seeming to be untroubled in first place after 22 sets of votes in the 2022 OGAE Poll, Italy now finds themselves playing second fiddle to Sweden, who has claimed the top spot. It’s still all to play for, though, as only five points separate the two acts.

At the same time, what used to be a three-horse race for the win, now looks like it’s a duel between Sweden and Italy. Spain has started to have some difficulties in keeping up with the current top two.

Inside the top ten, the Netherlands has reclaimed fourth spot from the United Kingdom. The remaining countries making up the top ten have kept the exact same positions since the last batch of votes. But don’t count on things definitely staying the same – Poland and France are closely duelling for the sixth spot, with a separation of just seven points.

Outside the top ten, both Estonia and the Czech Republic have benefited largely from this batch of votes. Estonia have jumped up four places to now sit in 13th place, and the Czech Republic have climbed two spots to put themselves in 16th. On the other hand, Finland has recorded the opposite trend. The Nordic country has dropped four places, from 13th to 17th.

From this latest batch, no country has received their first points in the OGAE Poll 2022. Thus, 26 countries have already received points and 14 more are yet to receive any.

OGAE Poll 2022 leaderboard – 24 April

  • (=) Germany – 2 points
  • (=) Romania – 2 points
  • 25. Lithuania – 1 point
  • (=) Switzerland – 1 point

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

Over the next coming days, the remaining OGAE groups will announce their points to determine their Eurovision winner. Stay tuned, because we will soon know which singer and song is this year’s fan favourite to win Eurovision 2022.

So far, 28 clubs have announced their votes. This means that there are 15 other clubs who will reveal their votes soon, so positions can still change!

Why are you caring so much about what angry ladies say? By that it would seem Cornelia has no support which couldn’t be more wrong. She has the most streamed Spotify track, the most played radio song and on YouTube Swedes clearly show they support her no matter the result. So why bother about Anna-Greta aged 66?
She will do fine, don’t worry. Top 10 at least..

This site really takes the fun out of ESC!] Instead of making us looking forward to it, it does the opposite. As a fan it is not fun reading comments about your country or any country where everyone takes joy in being as negative as possible and competes in who is most catty.
Good thing there are other sites shearing the joy of ESC done by professionals. The standard of this has sslowly turned into The Sun, Ono one takes it seriously but only read the gossip..

I respect people claiming Sweden tends to be overrated in this poll, as it has been with the juries in the past few years at esc, but to me this is the best song they’ve sent since 2014 and deserves at least a top-3 in May.

No country has ever had a streak of 6 very good entries in a row like Italy 2017-2022, they’ve also still been a bit underrated since that Swedish treadmill song had zero business finishing above Gabbani, Meta and Moro should have finished at least top 3 if not for the juries giving them a ridiculously low score too.

Because our entries most of the time are top 10 songs, and we always end up in top 10 televote. It’s the juries that neglect Serbia all the times, no matter what type of song we send. It’s not our fault that we have 5 other countries that speak the same language with whom we share the same musical scene and that we have a huge diaspora.

To be honest, I don’t think that OGAE polls are realistic. For instance, it’s almost not possible to see UK and Denmark juries and public would give high points to Italy’s entries. Their juries interestingly never gave points to Italy since 2015 and their public only give max. 3-4 points until now :/ Nevertheless, I really like Italy’s song but Sweden’s song is good.

I forgot: there are always two songs that are overrated. It is not like many claim here Sweden that has been the most overrated. It has been Italy like with Francesco Gabbiani (Last years is an exemption) and last year Malta. And France has been there too. Some songs might are underrated – usually because the live performance is much better than the video. Like with Eleni Fouriera.

OGAE has had Sweden in the top 10 the last decade consistently with the exception of Benjamin Engrosso who crapped the bed with the televote but still managed an 11th position with OGAE proving they never met a Swedish song that they didn’t overscore.

But not like this year. We have rarely been in top 3. And it must be great for Cornelia to arrive in Turin with all that support from fans no matter what will happen with the real voting. I think it’s great too after so much hate towards Sweden lately. People considered Loreen to be overrated as well, it really doesn’t matter what Sweden sends, our entries are always overrated because it’s swedish. Really no logic at all..
