Every year there are the bookmakers, who place the bets for the countries with the highest chances of winning. And of course it changes from week to week. Now we have seen all the live performances and the bets have changed here and there. We still have one favourite and that’s Italy. The second favourite this year was Belgium from the beginning, but due to Blanche’s live performance, people have been disappointed and they don’t even see her to qualify for the Grand Final anymore. This might be the biggest fall of the year.
Other countries have gained such as Portugal, which is #2 right now and Bulgaria #3, followed by Sweden and Armenia. On the last place we have the San Marinese entry. But a lot can still happen, we have not seen the complete line up in the dress rehearsal and the maybe somebody has a surprise on stage, which can change everything.
This is the placing so far:

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
