A while back, 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.
The results of our poll are ever-changing, and that was especially true this past week. From day to day, the Top 10, especially the bottom half of the Top 10 in our poll were changing constantly, which goes to show how few votes are between the nations.
Two weeks ago, Switzerland lost their lead in the poll to Portugal, and Portugal has remained up the top this week. Following on is Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy and Iceland which has remained unchanged. From that point there have been some big changes. Russia and Sweden were confidently in the Top 10 through the week, however now as we write this post, Russia is in 10th position and Sweden has dropped back out of the Top 10. Norway has moved up to 6th place, pushing Malta, Cyprus and Greece further down the poll.
Currently Portugal hold almost 17% of the vote which is reduced from last week, with Switzerland holding just over 12%. The Netherlands is not far behind on just below 12% of the vote, and Italy is sitting on just over 6.5%. Iceland and Norway are sitting in the 5% area, and below that, the vote is extremely close.
Although we like to focus on the Top 10 and how it changes, it’s also notable to mention that Georgia has moved up this week, while Spain and the UK are also not far off the Top 10 as is Sweden.
Here is the full Top 10 as it currently stands:
- The Netherlands
How does this compare with the odds?
Many of the changes in the odds this week have been in the nations below the Top 10, so not much has changed. The Netherlands is unsurprisingly still holding the lead, with Russia and Switzerland behind. Comparatively, we have 9 of the Top 10 in the odds in the Top 10 of our poll, with Portugal the only one not in the Top 10 of the odds. Sweden is the only nation in the Top 10 of the odds that isn’t in the Top 10 of our poll.
Make sure to keep voting in our Eurovision 2019 poll – your votes can change everything!
