Although Luxembourg hasn't competed in the Eurovision Song Contest for years, their OGAE fan club – just like the Italian one – is still active and thus, they have the right to be included in the OGAE voting tables. The overall scoreboard has changed once again with Switzerland taking over the lead.

The OGAE Luxmbourg top 10 is as follows:

  1. Cyprus
  2. Switzerland
  3. Germany
  4. Slovenia
  5. Latvia
  6. France
  7. Netherlands
  8. Serbia
  9. Spain
  10. Russia

With six points from Luxembourg, the votes for Latvia have doubled. The Netherlands have achieved their second set of votes and the highest one so far, four points. Belarus-long time leaders -surprisingly did not receive any points at all.For the first time, Cyprus got the 'douze points' which move them up to a fifth position.
