Do you agree with the results of the OGAE Polls? Let us know in the comments below.
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?
OGAYE polls are always so cursed.
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.
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.
Sweden won every single relevant poll this year though, not just the OGAE
“I just can’t with the Ogae poll every year” And you still leave a comment lol. May i ask how do know it’s “A large number of groups of middle-aged men”, did you work with Ogae before? I’m just curious.
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.
Nah, either Sweden or Finland will win, ain’t no way one of them doesn’t
Don’t be so confident it could appear as arrogance.
France or Norway maybe but Austria and Slovenia has zero chance, sorry
Wow I never thought about this being a possibility. You make a good point.
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 »
Every year a fans favourite falls at the finals. I’m thinking Albania 2022 and Croatia 2021 as just two examples. Any ideas which fan fav this year will fall.
Justice for 2021 Croatia!
There was an event in Australia (approximately 200ppl) where we watched all songs and voted on our favourite. Croatia came in at #1 🙁
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 »
I think the UK will really struggle, its a very generic song and the performer has been very weak in the lives we have seen.
The Czech Republic is probably the most likely at this stage but that all could change!
Czechia or Austria
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 »
I’m sad that Icleand didn’t get any points, I think it’s soo underrated. I really hope they qualify if they improve the staging maybe
No they got it right. The ppp ower is not working sorry
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.
they’ve been in the televote top 10 SEVEN times since loreen last participated. how do they lack appeal?
Actually they’ve gotten to televote TOP-10 six (6) times, but even with those high scores they only won once after Loreen, not even juries placing them 2nd have gotten them that win.
Aaah, yes, those terrible, terrible televoting results of 6th, 6th, 3rd and 4th….
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.
If that “can you hear million voices” (i forgot the name) song can come 11th in televote, there’s no way Loreen end up outside top 5 televote.
There’s several songs that are or will be in the final, that might push Sweden down: Finland, Norway, Austria, Spain, France, Italy, UK for example could be the big televote gainers.
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.
I meant to post this on the wiwi jury page, oopsie
Another year, another extremely predictable ogae poll. I dare them to give us surprising results for once.
I’ll give for sure, I’m going to go for Czechia or Slovenia as they are the highest ranked, not ever to win. Although Iceland, Malta and Cyprus are in my heart, but the disrespect among them continues for another year. Let’s hope 2024 bodes better for them.
Omg I’m so shocked ??. If televote is gonna be like “let’s vote Loreen”, then I think Ireland has to bring Jonny Logan back. Let’s vote for a new artist. For God’s sake people!
I don’t think Loreen will win. Just because there is no surprise element. Always the winning song has something unpredictable. Unfortunately love Loreen but she should have chosen a song that’s out of her lead…something new.
What in the world was unpredictable about “Arcade”? Or “Amar perlois dois”? Or “1944”? Or “Running Scared”?
They were fone bx unknown artists. When returning artist is on the stage, unpredictability is kinda a must.
done by unknown*
Being new does not mean it’s unpredictable. Unpredictable means the artists bring something new not seen or heard that goes against what is expected. Even new artists can be unpredictable. So what was unpredictable in these winners?
Yes 2022,2021,2019,2018 is really unpredictable lmao
She will. There’s nothing unpredictable anymore about Eurovision we know the winner months ago we simply wait to make it official.
How are Spain sooo low?!
0 for Latvia, it s a joke
Huge joke, and I hope it doesn’t reflect the actual results. Latvia deserves to qualify!
I voted for 12 points for Latvia (U.K.)
My 12 went to Italy
Imagine downvoting this (it was at -1 and now at 0 after I voted for it). What a toxic culture Eurofandim has become.
“That guy’s favourite is different from my own! Downvote!”
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.
I find it funny how Wiwibloggs never reported on Mika Newton suing Loreen for plagiarism
Did they sue though? I’ve tried googling in both English and Swedish without finding anything about an actual lawsuit. But maybe Wiwibloggs should have invented one, to make it fairer for everybody?
Sued? For similarities?
Then every song should be a lawsuit…
Yes, the court will be very busy if people suing each other for similarities lmao
Did they sue or did anything but a instagram story that will be disappear after 24h?
Think that will pretty much be the jury result, except I personally think the juries will kill Finland’s chances. The televote will be different but the juries will ensure Sweden wins with that boring and very “familiar” song
Juries kill ethnic songs so they need to stay, more generic songs the better
I want juries that do their tasks at the highest level and in bigger numbers of course.
Ten members’ points should be feasable to process by the esteemed broadcasters’ “employees” like a few people that are fully literate with numerical skills galore, able to read a few words in English should scoring sheets not be available in their own language.
Televote is too predictable.
Juries are predictable to some degree because of reasons. They are *small* and most seem to follow some party line. The public vote counterbalances the juries.
With all these “developments” and “omg changes” splashed out in our faces, why not do a 10-person jury per country? If that cannot happen I would be genuinely curious as to why. Money should not be an issue – transportation, symbolic professional fee per session because of the *honour* of doing this, and some snacks and water to keep them interested and awake. Done. Show some good faith.
Oh I don’t trust ebu either. However more accountability should be welcome. They effing ditched the juries after what happened last year in semi2 with AzerBUYjan, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania and San Marino juries of five each but introduced the rest of the world public vote.
Ten people following the party line is much more obvious than only five.
I remember reading that should jury “irregular” points be found, the rules say the public vote from the respective country will be calculated twice. If true, I call it bull* and say that the aggregate vote is more objective.
Now it looks like there will be different sets of rules for the semis and the GF. No mandatory meet and greets but that awful app live sessions. It *****.
I don’t think juries will kill Finland’s chances, at least not as much as people think they will
Only if they treat it like a Toy?
OGAE’s zero points for Latvia is a cccrrrrime against Eurovision. They should drop that “E” from their name and replace it with ****************.
It is Latvia, who we talk about, most irrelevant country in the contest
This one is more of a snoozefest than Carousel’s back in 2019 lol
We’ll see on the night of the semi where they stand with their snooze and how i’ll be partying after her being announced as one of qualifiers
they’ll qualify, instead of cliché turd Switzerland
The OGAE guys come off as gatekeepers tbh
*pretends to be shocked*
Don’t forget: there are countries in this poll where the number of people voting is lower than the total amount of points they give.
Poland gets points but Latvia doesn’t. Sure.
its 2. Like Latvia ,fair should’ve gotten more but let’s not pretend two is a lot.
oh it is a compliment, Loreen is mega popular, millions of people voted for her here <3
Surprised about Spain and Serbia not reaching a higher score.
Given what is popular with OGAE, I’m not surprised. What surprised me more though is Slovenia being bottom 5 and Serbia bottom 10 with the Eurojury.
of course, the balkans have too outdated music
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 think they have been the the most accurate with results these last years. Epecially with the introduction of 50% readers vote they also have. Their taste most aligns with the actual result. But of course they are no fortune tellers either..
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.
How do you know they don’t? Have they told you this? Or is it more “If an entry currently has no professionally shot live performance and we do not yet knownwhat their staging will look like, the juries don’t either”?
Eurojuries judge before any staging plan is done and based on music videos.
I don’t like Estonia personally but surprised at this, classic “jurybait”
There’s only so many quirky entries you can support withoit going all out on them. With Finland sweeping the quieky vote and Austria doing a competenr job at it as well, I’m not surprised Spain and Serbia got lost in the shuffle.
Latvia? A zero? Good grief.
0 for Latvia.
