  1. This is my prediction after the hints:

    Top10 (no order):

    North America: USA and Mexico
    Asia: Kazakhstan and Taiwan (Syria?)
    Europe: Iceland, Denmark, Ireland, Poland, Serbia and Greece

    My initial prediction had Australia in instead of Greece.

    As for the Top2? OK, now I am convinced that North America has a big shot after all along with one European country – in my early prediction I saw only Europe. So, I think one of these three are in Top2: USA, Mexico and Poland. If I had to narrow it down I would say USA and Poland.

    As for the last I would say China, South Korea, or Finland and to a lesser extent Russia or Italy.

    8hs to go!

  2. Finland, Russia, Italy 😦
    I wouldn’t like to see any of those three, last on the scoreboard.


  3. I finally have proper internet at home again, so I’ll be here tonight.

    I really love my 12 points, I listen to it quite often, actually. But this was generally a strong edition for me, so many songs which I would have voted for in another edition, perhaps.
