Roger Cicero has been tipped as the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in a special BBC poll featuring fans and former contestants.

A panel of eleven people gave their top ten points, in true Eurovision Song Contest style, for the BBC website poll. Some big names from past contests were present on the jury: Sandra Kim (Belgium 1986), Mihai Traistariu (Romania 2004), Richard Herrey (Sweden 1984), Andrius Mamontovas (Lithuania 2006)and Nicki French (UK 2000)were on hand to give their expert opinion. They were joined by six fans for the final vote.

The top five was as follows:

  1. Germany
  2. Switzerland
  3. Serbia
  4. Georgia
  5. Spain

The UK was awarded 19th place out of the 42 countries. We will find out how accurate at least part of the poll is after tonight's semifinal, which top fivers Switzerland, Serbia and Georgia will have to pass first before having a chance at taking the crown.
