  1. Ok, this is among the 2 or 3 strongest editions I have ever taken part in, and definately the most open to any prediction. So many songs I see them winning. But if I had to choose to predict only one, I’d say: Spain.

    Good luck everyone and thank you for the music ❤

    So tired here that I’ll drop dead on my bed with my clothes on 😛
    Good night!

  2. This edition has been a really strong one, to be honest it’s difficult to predict which songs that people here have voted for. Think we could have a similar result to ESC 2011: very even and points spread across the board (possibly three or four front-runners). My prediction for the Top 10:

    United Kingdom
    United States

  3. I talked about Spain and Morocco.Other entries could be the UK and Ireland from those most western-sounding,Israel and Cyprus as more experimental.

  4. Tbh. it wasn’t one of my favourite editions on a personal level, but there are some really good songs still. The one I enjoyed the most will probably be FdlC 16.


  5. I am glad ppl are predicting Uma and Buika (DMGSN girls) for the trophy and also seeing Natalia doing so as well. In case they form a top3 then we should have a DGSN edition soon.


      • From what I remember Spam is absolutely horrible. At primary school (back in the days when we had no choice what they served for lunch) they used to have Spam fritters – slices of Spam fried in a batter. They were the most horrible thing you could ever imagine! Somehow it made the Spam taste even worse!

  6. Top10 prediction from DMGSN.


    Not far: SWE, ROK, MAR and FIN. CYP and IRL might close the top16.

    As for the winner I see Spain.

  7. This is my first ever (I think) FDLC prediction. Here it is, in order:
    Ukraine, United States, Mexico, Greece, Morocco, Guatemala, France, Spain, Venezuela, Moldova
    It certainly does not match my Top 10, but having created a very detailed formula, my database has predicted this based on youtube views, prior voting patterns, language preferences, music genre and nationalities.

    • Rob, this is fantastic. Finally the infamous guessing game lead by guessing ring masters Donnie, Dino and Dimi turns into something solid and scientific. No wonder you haven’t been around lot when working your arse of with algorithms and taking care of every detail.
      I hail the new era of predictions and I call them Scientific Rob Predictions.

  8. 5 HoDs return to my top 10 after last edition.
    Three pairs of consecutive songs in the running order.
    I believe I voted first this time (honouring slot #1) 🙂

  9. The good news is that everybody voted!
    Unfortunately, I was wrong. I looked again and realized that Bay did not vote, so unfortunately, Indonesia is dq’d.
    Results will be at 18:00 CET today.

  10. One of my top votes will probably be shocked that I gave them votes.

    I have never given points to two HoDs I voted for before.

    And let’s be honest, I probably didn’t vote for the winner again.
