BigPoll 2006: predict for the final!

by Sietse Bakker 246 views

It's time to look back at the semifinal BigPoll 2006 predictions and compare them to the results of the actual semifinal. This also means that you can now start predicting for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest!

  • For the second year running, the BigPoll predictive tool correctly guessed six out of ten qualifiers for the final
  • For the second year running, the semifinal BigPoll winner did not qualify for the final, in this case Belgium
  • Three of the predicted top four countries qualified for the final
  • Lithuania did not receive a single point in the BigPoll, and is the ‘shock’ inclusion in the qualifying countries
  • In the last week, Iceland had been slipping fast and had dropped to 9th place, Turkey had been rising to 11th. We believe that on recent trends, another 24 hours would have pushed Turkey above Iceland and correctly predicted 7 out of 10
