With the Eurovision Song Contest final now less than two weeks away, Belgian fans are the latest OGAE members to add their predictions to the preview mix. Most of the big favourites find themselves with points, whilst Belarus' Koldun wins the douze points with Work your magic.

Switzerland's DJ Bobo, who has been one of the clear favourites across most of the OGAE 2007 polls so far, scooped second place in the vote, whilst Malta joins the leader board for the first time.

OGAE's Brussels vote for the final top ten is as follows:

  1. Belarus
  2. Switzerland
  3. Cyprus
  4. Ukraine
  5. Greece
  6. Serbia
  7. Bulgaria
  8. Denmark
  9. Slovenia
  10. Malta

Adding the Belgian scores to the running total, the board now looks like this:

  1. Switzerland 136
  2. Serbia135
  3. Belarus 110
  4. Cyprus98
  5. Slovenia97
  6. Greece 80

Thanks to a helpful ten points from Belgium, Switzerland move back into the lead, pushing Serbia down just a single point behind. Cyprus moves up slightly ahead of Slovenia, and Ukraine does the same to Bulgaria. Denmark is a hair's breadth away from breaking into the top ten, a single point behind Russia girls Serebro. Malta attracts its first OGAE vote, joining the board with Poland on one point.
