Belarus' Koldun has notched up another win in the OGAE voting rounds after a solid Swedish win, solidifying his second place in the overall score table.

Serbia came in a rather distant second place withMolitva while Iceland followed not far behind with Valentine Lost. Sweden was included in the voting, but omitted for the official OGAE result; perhaps expectedly, The Ark'sWorrying Kind found itself just below Belarus in second place amongst Swedish fans.
