Another national branch of the OGAE fan club network has released the results of their voting on the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest entries. Norway has received the British 12 points, whilst Greece and Sweden complete the podium, being awarded with 10 and 8 points respectively.

This is the OGAE UK's top 10:

  • 12 Norway (193 votes)
  • XX United Kingdom (190 votes)
  • 10 Greece (179 votes)
  • 8 Sweden (177 votes)
  • 7 Spain (151 votes)
  • 6 Finland (146 votes)
  • 5 Montenegro (120 votes)
  • 4 Iceland (113 votes)
  • 3 Azerbaijan (103 votes)
  • 2 Turkey (101 votes)
  • 1 Switzerland (89 votes)

Just missing out:

  • Malta (88 votes)
  • France (79 votes)
  • Albania (73 votes)

Norway tops once again a OGAE jury voting, getting another 12 points that broaden the difference with the second placed act. The British entry closely follows Norway, just 3 votes behind, but since OGAE national branches can't give points to the entries of their own country, Jade Ewen can't score any points this time. Therefore, it's Greece, the third favourite of the British fans, who gets 10 points, 2 votes ahead of Sweden, the country getting 8 points. Spain is clear 4th, with 151 votes, 5 ahead of Finland, country scoring its first 6points. Right behind, Montenegro and Iceland also forsake the condition of 'nil-pointer' with their first5 and 4 points, respectively. There was a tight battle for the lower places of the British top-10, with Azerbaijan just 2 votes ahead of neighbouring Turkey. Switzerland, closing the list with 89 votes, is just 1 ahead of Malta, thus preventing the Mediterranean nation from scoring their first point.

After two OGAE national jury votings, the scoreboard looks like:

  1. Norway, 24 points
  2. Greece, 17 points
  3. Spain, 13 points
  4. Turkey, 12 points
  5. Sweden, 11 points
