Next club to cast their votes in the international OGAE Poll for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest are the Rest of the world branch. This club represents members from non-participating countries which do not have their own local organised OGAE fanclub.

This is the way OGAE Rest of the world members rate this year's Eurovision Song Contest entries:

  • 12 points: Romania
  • 10 points: Switzerland
  • 8 points: Germany
  • 7 points: Turkey
  • 6 points: Moldova
  • 5 points: FYR Macedonia
  • 4 points: Israel
  • 3 points: Armenia
  • 2 points: Latvia
  • 1 point: Poland

The OGAE Rest of the world voting brings minor changes to the overall scoreboard. Although there are no points there for Denmark, who still retain a strong lead, the gap between them and runner up Germany closes to 21 points. Romania's top score moves them up three places and two countries, namely FYR Macedonia and Poland, receive their first points thus leaving nil point state.

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 esctoday.com 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.
