It’s the biggest fan poll in the Eurovision community — and the OGAE Poll 2023 has reached its conclusion.

Members from 42 OGAE fan clubs from around Europe and the rest of the world have voted on their favourite entries of Eurovision 2023. And coming out on top is Sweden’s Loreen totalling 423 points from 4,853 OGAE fan club members. 

Half of all OGAE clubs — 21 out of 42 — gave “Tattoo” their 12 points. Loreen received points from every eligible country. The lowest score she received was just one points from OGAE Luxembourg.

Finland’s Käärijä came second with 394 points, while France’s La Zarra came third with 302 points. Norway’s Alessandra and Austria’s Teya & Salena round out the top five. Eight countries including Eurovision 2022 champions Ukraine finished with zero points.

I’m not a fan of the song and performance, but it’s Sweden and Loreen so she will probably win. I saw an interview with Loreen on Dutch tv. She was so uninspiring. ? France’s song is very similar and in French, it stands out more and isn’t just a remake of a song we already know?

With more than half (20!) of the countries under 10 points there is a clear lack of genuine diversity in this poll. Once again a herd mentality.

It’s Ogae.
A large number of groups of middle-aged men voted for Loreen, the winner the last time any of them were a healthy weight or had some level of hair coverage.

Sorry, I know that’s mean but I just can’t with the Ogae poll every year. Predictable, boring, next.

I was previously a member of an Ogae for 4-5 years.
It’s harmless enough when they do polls like this, it’s just they are an incredibly limited demographic and their range of taste tends to be even more limited.

From looking at fan contest votes on Twitter and YouTube, the younger generation are all voting for Loreen too.

Loreen is running away with this, thanks to middle-aged, Millennial and Gen Z voters.

I am loud about my love of Finland, but my personal call is- he’s not winning, neither is Sweden. I feel this year is going to be another “Public and Jury get so divided that is a third country (Austria, France, Norway or Slovenia in my thoughts) with a more consensual result getting the crown.

Loreen and Sweden winning the ESC this year is fine by me, even though it is not my favourite. But I really wonder if it is doing the contest any good? Loreen has had no hits and since 2012 and been more or less abscent from the international music scene since «Heal» the same year. What signals are sent by Loreen winning? That «ESC-artists» are totally dependent on ESC for new hits? That having the maybe biggest ESC-hit ever (Euphoria) don’t really take you anywhere? And what does this say about Loreen: that she for all future will «just» be… Read more »

The only one I can think of that stands even a chance of that is Austria. Or Israel is she somehows botches the live performance. Finland, Norway and Sweden will definitely qualify. France, Italy, U.K. and Spain are in the Big 5.

Czechia qualifies if you consider them high up enough to be fan favourites. Their live vocals have always been iffy and they likely will have neither enthusiastic televoting or jury support.

I think Czechia could be the one this year. They’re in the top 10 everywhere so I consider it a fan favorite but indeed their live performances haven’t been good until now. I hope they will manage to do better in Liverpool, I’m a bit scared. For Austria I have no doubts it will do great. The girls can definitely sing. The question is will the austrian delegation be able to create a staging crazy enough for this song? And for Israel I have no opinion as we don’t know how she sings her song live. Tbh I love Noa… Read more »

Happy for my girl La Zarra, Loreen, Käärijä and all the others doing well, even if this poll is not really relevant to predict the Esc results, even if it’s just for the fun between the eurofans, even if it’s a bit biased, even if it’s only 4800 voters, it’s still enjoyable to get some love from somewhere and rightfully the others not doing well should take that with a pinch of salt cause I mean 4800 persons vs dozens of millions viewers…so it really represents nothing and doesn’t pretend to represent what will happen in Eurovision, it’s just fun… Read more »

Eurovision voting for Sweden:

2022: Jury 2nd – Televoting 6th
2021: Jury 17th – Televoting 11th
2019: Jury 2nd – Televoting 9th
2018: Jury 2nd – Televoting 23rd
2017: Jury 3rd – Televoting 8th
2016: Jury 9th – Televoting 6th
2015: Jury 1st – Televoting 3rd
2014: Jury 2nd – Televoting 4th
2013: Jury 3rd – Televoting 18th

Sweden really lacks the appeal to get people voting for them while juries pour honey, so it takes quite a leap for them to win this year, when even jury scores might go into multiple direntions.

To win they had to be 1st with the juries and 3rd with the televote, this year there are several songs that appeal juries and same for televote. If jury doesn’t give them enough points and let’s say televote goes same as usual we won’t be seeing Sweden winning.

These Ogae polls is predictable simple, because they base on different recording or preview version. There’s no surprise effect. like in live and everyone is on the same line.

I always thought the scores were graded against each other in that year so for example a 6/10 in 2016 wouldn’t necessarily be equivalent in quality to a 6/10 in 2023…Is that not correct Wiwibloggs?

I must say I like Tattoo but Euphoria was absolutely legendary back in 2012, I don’t think they really compare. But Tattoo is clearly a stand out entry for the songs submitted for 2023 in terms of overall quality and production, even if not my personal favourite.

OGAE polls are always more bandwagony than the actual televote. Diehard Eurofans immerse themselves into the latest news and read all about the biggest trenders among the other fans and let that sway their vote. It’s like an ouroboros.

Meanwhile, the vast majority of televoters have never heard any of the entries before semi-final #1 (or the final if they don’t watch either semi-final) and vave no clue who the fan favourites are.

Latvia will struggle to qualify. I usually say it this way to be nice but I think they simply won’t.
Not because I don’t like their song. Aija is a huge grower among fans community. It reminds me of Finland 2017 in a way. The problem is that a song doesn’t need to be a grower in this contest. It needs to do a good impression at the first listen.

It’s basically juries made of professionals (some former ESC contestants, for example) who review the songs and it’s usually meant to reflect what the jury scores at the actual ESC could look like. On top of my head the top 5 was Sweden, France, Italy, Belgium and Norway while bottom 5 was Albania, Moldova, San Marino, Slovenia and Estonia.

Now I wouldn’t call it relevant personally, just like OGAE. Sometimes it can give an indication of what could be potentially a surprise with the juries but I always take it with a grain of salt.

I somewhat agree but it’s also important to consider that they do not take into account live performances, or potential stagings. But some songs that are far from being fan favourites like Cyprus, Ireland, Denmark and Poland are all doing surprisingly decently to very well with Eurojuries while Serbia, Portugal, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia or Georgia are all pretty low.
