The day has finally arrived, after waiting for a whole year, tonight we will see the Grand Final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest take place in Israel. In a matter of hours we will know the winner of this year’s Eurovision edition, but who will walk away with the coveted grand prix? Will it be a new country? Will it be the fans’ favourite? Will it be the betting houses’ favourite? We bring you the results of the secret 2019 Commentators Poll conducted by ESCToday.
We invited the commentators from the 41 competing countries at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 to determine the winner of the competition via our secret poll.
They watch every rehearsal and play a key role in describing the performances of the participating countries to their respective audiences in their home countries during the live shows. They commentate on the whole show, performances, costumes and give their own opinions with witty comments and humour!
Last year ESCToday’s Commentators’ Poll successfully predicted the winner of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.
ESCToday has brought you several polls this season in order to predict the winner of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv: OGAE Poll, INFE Poll, ESCToday Editor’s Poll and ESCToday’s Live Poll.
