Hey folks, this is planet Anarchi-A calling, we are fascinated by this Eurovision Song Contest Thing!
And before I come to my guesses I wanna say I find it incredibly hard to predict this year. So many variables in play with who's gonna score saturday night! Hackers? Children? Fans? Turks? Grandmas?
I'm just pretty sure we're in for surprises. I don't know. Europe is strange these days, you never know. So I'm just going for some wild guesses and I'm gonna leave out Russia and Azerbaijan completely. I think they're gonna score somewhere in Top 10 but I just can't tell where. Similar for France, soooo hard to say what's probably gonna happen. Will these three get lost because their songs are not strong, or will they get carried by interest votes who don't actually have anything to do with the song? All three good singers with a not-so-strong song and stagings that have a risk of reaching too small parts of the audience, missing the mass you need to place really high. Hard to say here what bloc-voting will be able to do! So I decided to leave these three out.
Now here are my bets:
Loser Bet for Germany
because they aren't even sisters, their staging is not so good and one of them is off-key sometimes.
Loser Bet for Slovenia
because they told everyone they don't want to be there. Give your spot to people who'd love that chance, then!
14th place for Israel
Betting odds see Kobi at the end BUT I think the host nation will collect a few votes everywhere.
7th place for Macedonia
Love this song. Would like to see it higher up but 7th would still be Macedonias best, so go Tamara!
6th place for Netherlands
I call this 'Occidentalis Karma Effect' when everyone is sure one artist will win and then too little people call.
4th place for Malta
Yalala! Colours and beat and freshness. Last year loved Fuego, I think this might be this years fire.
3rd place for Italy
It's my favourite song BUT traditionally juries don't give much to Italy and he can't win against them.
2nd place for Norway
The semi audience loved it most, good Eurobeat with special Joik and a message, don't count them out!
Winner Bet for Italy
because Soldi is my favourite. I would just love to see this win but I fear for him with the Juries.
Winner Bet for Australia
So uplifting! ESC might go down under if Juries, pseudo-classic lovers and acrobatics-fans add up.
Winner Bet for San Marino
No, just kidding. Not enough turks in the world to pull that off. But it's gonna be San Marinos best result!
Aaaaaaaaand I really wanted a reason to end this post with my new motto:
Keep calm, don't panic and Say Na Na Na!
