Eurovision 2023 is in the final stretch. But before anyone lifts the trophy, we have to go around the world and name our team’s winner. We submitted our scores several weeks ago — before rehearsals even started in Liverpool. So please note that this is more of our “studio cut winner” than our actual Eurovision winner (since we hadn’t seen any staging…)
Some of our long-time followers may be asking: Didn’t the Wiwi Jury already vote? Yes. But for the Wiwi Jury, our in-house panel of music unprofessionals each rated all 40 songs out of a 10, and the scores were simply averaged. When you do that all scores move toward the middle. It’s a useful exercise for us, as we all have to think about the songs critically and start to develop our favourites. But what exactly is the difference between a song with a score of 7.15 and a song with a score of 7.25 anyway? (Please don’t say 0.10). In this video, we’re voting “for” our individual favourites using the traditional Eurovision system of awarding countries points. This can change the rankings dramatically.
In our earlier Wiwi Jury, Sweden, Finland and Austria came out on top. Will history repeat itself here? You’ll need to watch our 25-minute show to find out!
Note: If you want to keep the results a surprise, then do NOT scroll to the end of this post or look at the comments on the YouTube video. They are full of spoilers! The Live Chat comments on YouTube are OK though — they add to the suspense and the drama. Happy viewing and big love to you all!
Below is the order in which our jurors vote. Please remember: Votes were submitted prior to rehearsals in Liverpool.
