In 2004 the Portuguese fanspredicted the victory of Serbia & Montenegro and the second place of Ukraine, though in the actual final the voting was the other way around.

In 2005 they predicted the victory of Hungary and the 6th place to Greece, which was the real winner.

In 2006 it was predicted the victory of Belgium, which did not make it to the final, whereas Finland (the real winner) was predicted in 9th place.

Let's wait and see what this year's results will bring.

In the same meeting, the OGAE members voted for the Portugueseentryat the 2007OGAE Video Contest (Mónica Sintra performing "Esqueci de Lembrar de Mim”) and the 2007 OGAE Song Contest (Rosa Negra with “Fado Ladino”).
