Unfortunately, the Eurovision in Rotterdam has been cancelled out of concern for the public's safety due to the ongoing global pandemic. It is as of yet unclear whether next year's edition will be held in Rotterdam or not, but once we have further information we will make sure to update you accordingly.
As soon as the songs are released, predictions about which ones are most likely not going to do well in the Eurovision begin rolling out almost immediately. In this way, you can already begin to eliminate songs from your prospective bets. Every year there are songs whose odds are slashed once all the rest of the entries are released. Keeping an eye out for these could bag you a hefty payout.
One of the best ways of identifying which participants are popular with fans is by going on the Eurovision Song Contest's official Youtube page and seeing which contestants' songs are the most viewed. Now, this is no way an accurate representation as to who will win the contest, as videos can become popular for a number of reasons, but videos with a lot of views, likes, and positive comment s will usually give a very good indication as to who will receive a strong proportion of votes from the public during the Grand Final.
Since the Eurovision final takes place on one night, punters have the opportunity to bet in-play as the competition is happening. Whilst naturally the later you bet, the lower the odds might be, this could prove to be a more reliable option, as contestants could bring out some surprises in their final performance which could greatly affect their odds. You should also note that on the night of the final, all jury results are announced first.
Juries and televoters often don't agree on certain songs, so placing a Eurovision bet on a fan favourite to do well after they were rated low by the juries could be a great tactic to take advantage of some very high odds. Despite this, however, neighbour voting is still as prevalent as ever. At the end of the day, you need a good song to win the Eurovision, but having an interesting song and a lot of neighbourly support presents a strong chance of winning the contest.
In addition to voting for neighbours, political voting is also very rampant in the Eurovision Song Contest. Countries like the United Kingdom , who recently voted to leave the European Union, and Germany, whose war-mongering past has still not left the consciousness of certain nations to this day, are consistent underperformers in the competition.
The Eurovision is no stranger to controversy, and a lot can happen between the time that a song is announced and the date of the shows. Artists can do or say something which may anger people, thus hurting their televote score or potentially getting disqualified. Others might even make slight tweaks to their songs or performances, which make them more appealing to voters. Wait until right before the start of the semi-finals or final to make your Eurovision bet so that you can ensure that nothing unexpected will get in the way.
Each contest is hosted in the nation that won in the previous year. All countries, with the exception of the Big 5 UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and the host country , are divided into two semi-finals where they compete against others in their group. The top 10 countries from each semi-final will qualify for the grand final where they will join the Big 5 and host country for a total of 26 participants. During both semi-finals, as well as the grand final, all participants perform their original song in a predetermined order, and viewers can vote for their favourites.
Once all songs are performed and all votes are tallied, the winner of the Eurovision will be announced. But only once. It was in and they ended second-last. Morocco only received points from Italy. Romania was expelled from Eurovision due to unpaid debt to EBU.

On the Google form, you will be asked to submit your name, Twitter profile optional and nationality nothing sinister about this at all.
You will be able to maintain a significant level of anonymity if you so desire! You will then be asked to select which entry you think will win each national final using a series of drop-down menus. Note: you will require a Google Account to register your votes. The email address you use to login to the form and to submit your votes will not be retained by ESCXTRA following the end of the competition.
Your email address will only be used to provide you with a notification if you are the winning entrant at the end of the competition. Your email will not be sold to any third-parties and will be kept securely within the Google Forms system by Google itself. Because data privacy is what? After all of the national finals in the round have taken place and selected their winners, it is time to award the points! We aim to turn the results around for you within 24 hours of the latest national final of the round coming to an end.
However, please be patient as there are a lot of you guys playing…and three of us! We calculate your score depending on how close your predicted winners come to winning their respective finals. Take Melodifestivalen , for example. If you predicted The Mamas to win, you would receive the full 12 points on offer.
If you predicted 2nd placed Dotter to win, you would receive 11 points, and so on. Therefore, if you predicted Mohombi to win, you would only receive 1 point, because he finished last in the final. In the instance of a national final only declaring the winner, such as in Eurovision: You Decide RIP circa , the points on offer will be all or nothing.
For example, if you predicted SuRie to win you would take the full 6 points on offer. However, if you predicted any of the other five finalists, you would receive the minimum of 1 point. We will determine which of the two scoring systems will be used depending on the results that are announced during the show.
Sometimes a national final chooses to reveal full results afterwards via the internet, or other outlets, after only announcing the winner or the top positions during the show. In such cases, we will only include these detailed results in our scoring if they are revealed prior to the publication of our Prediction results.
Once we have published the results of a round, these will not be changed even if broadcasters reveal detailed results in the following days or weeks. If you do not submit a prediction for a national final then you will receive zero points.
This scoring process will take place for each national final. For the first time ever, we will running a Junior Eurovision practice round this year! You can listen to all 12 entries here. And check out what Tim and myself Costa from the Eurovision Prediction team think will happen:.
