by Stella Floras 49 views

With 2500 votes so far Greece and Sweden lead Demandi's English-speaking poll, while Switzerland leads the French and German-speaking one.

In the same polls, voters get the chance to have their say on some of the issues they feel passionate about, such as whether there is political voting at the Eurovision Song Contest or whether a good performance can win regardless of the country's affiliations. 54% of the voters believe that the voting is "slightly political", 34% of all participants think that the best performance on the night will win and 30% don't think that there are any behavioural patterns allowing the winner to be predicted.

As the Eurovision Song Contest is probably the world's most viewed music show, ranking higher that the Grammy Awards, 58% of the voters think that the event brings Europe closer together.

Here are the results of the Demandi poll so far:

English-speaking participants' top five:
1) Greece & Sweden (both with 50%)
2) Switzerland (49%)
3) Serbia (46%)
4) Belarus (45%)
5) Cyprus (38%)

French and German-speaking participants' top five:
1) Switzerland (38%)
2) Greece (32%)
3) Sweden (29%)

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
