The most historical annual poll for the Eurovision Song Contest, the Big Poll, run continuously since 2002, has officially one more sister poll. Journalists who cover the contest, people who were somehow involved with the contest and Artists are what we would simply call Eurovision Experts. During the last few weeks, we invited them to share their expertise and predict the outcome of the semi-finals.

Eurovision Semi-final 2 results

But first, what is Big Poll? Back in 2002, there was a conceptual poll started by Sietse Bakker (nowadays Event Supervisor for the Eurovision Song Contest). His idea was to create a poll which would accurately predict the result of the Eurovision Song Contest. Taking over his idea, every year Big Poll aims to become a poll with the highest accuracy. And who votes? Of course our readers! Big Poll is not a favourites poll, hence we are asking you to cast your predictions according to how you believe your country will vote on each show. While submitting your vote, a system fetches the origin of the vote and submits the prediction to the database. Given the fact that our systems can track (and as of this year, easier) the country every vote is coming from, we can cancel out the incorrect votes and only keep those who follow the Eurovision rules.

    It would be too good to be true…but no way. Bookies can’t be wrong so much. Sweden are too overrated this year but seems like they’ll win unfairly

  • sapsan

    Have a big doubt about Luthuanua with their first draw position. Anyway I prefer Malta or San Marino instead

    sapsan I agree and even knowing the neighbor factor in such song contest no doubt that Sweden will will. best song is not there .
