by Benny Royston 106 views

OGAE Spain is the first fan club to vote on the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest. In total, 33 clubs will vote this year, and in partnership with our friends at OGAE, the official Eurovision Song Contest fan club organisation, esctoday.com will be host to the official scoreboard. After Spain's votes, Sweden are the first leaders of the OGAE scoreboard 2008.

The Spanish fan club asked members to each award votes in the traditional Eurovision Song Contest voting manner, giving 12 points to their favourite song, 10 points to their second favourite, then 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 to their tenth favourite. After members voted, the points for each country were added together. The overall top ten provides the first set of OGAE votes for 2008:

  • 12 Sweden (380 votes)
  • 10 Portugal (268 votes)
  • 8 Serbia (216 votes)
  • 7 Switzerland (209 votes)
  • 6 Andorra (182 votes)
  • 5 Norway (143 votes)
  • 4 Iceland (140 votes)
  • 3 Ukraine (130 votes)
  • 2 Russia (112 votes)
  • 1 Armenia (111 votes)

Just outside the top ten:

  • Israel 104 votes
  • Albania 97 votes
  • Belarus 86 votes
  • Slovenia 77 votes
  • Germany 74 votes

Spain's OGAE club voted Sweden as their overwhelming favourite with neighbours Portugal clear in second place. Host country Serbia took third place in a narrow lead over Switzerland. Neighbouring Andorra were fifth in Spain, ahead of a three way battle between Norway, Iceland and Ukraine. Spain's other bordering country, France, just missed out on a place in the top 15. Russia pipped Armenia to 9th place by one point, and Israel missed out on a debut point, finishing 11th, just seven points behind Armenia. Three countries failed to score any votes from the Spanish fans: Montenegro, San Marino and Croatia.
