Just over a month ago, we launched our Eurovision 2019 poll, where we aimed to find out which act you, the fans, think will win this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Each week, we will be recapping the results of the poll to see who is leading the vote, and who is floating in and out of the Top 10.
This week we have seen some dramatic changes to the top end of the poll results, with the leader of the poll changing for the first time since the poll launched. Switzerland comfortably held the lead for the last month, however has been slowly slipping. This week we saw a surge of votes take Portugal to the top, pushing previous top 3 Switzerland, the Netherlands and Italy all down a position.
The middle group of our Top 10, Iceland, Greece, Malta and Cyprus have all remained in their positions this week, although now we have seen Australia just slip out of the Top 10 to make way for Norway and Spain who has now moved up to 10th place.
Currently Portugal hold over 17% of the vote, with Switzerland holding close to 15%. The Netherlands is not far behind on almost 12% of the vote, and Italy is sitting on just under 6%, however Iceland is hot on the heels of Italy. From there down, the vote remains extremely close, to the point that any vote could change who is in the Top 10, and in which order.
Although we like to focus on the Top 10 and how it changes, it’s also notable to mention that Albania is not far off the Top 10, and Russia has received more support this week to push them back towards the Top 10.
Here is the full Top 10 as it currently stands:
- The Netherlands
How does this compare with the odds?
Not too much has changed with the odds this week, with The Netherlands still holding the biggest winning chance percentage. Russia is still second, although isn’t in our Top 10 poll results this week. Italy has moved up in the odds once again to 4th place, the same as they are in our poll. Sweden isn’t in our Top 10 poll results this week, however is sitting in 5th place in the odds.
The middle section of our Top 10 matches fairly well with that of the odds, with Iceland, Cyprus, Malta and Greece all featuring in the Top 10 odds. Norway also closes out the Top 10 of the odds with Portugal sitting at 11th.
