So I got a home run for the first time – the top 3 correctly predicted, and in the right order. See you again next year!


OK here are my predictions, which I’m making at 22:21 before the voting opens. The actual results will be posted here after the voting is complete (and I’ll leave my wrong predictions here for the record).

My predictions 2015 [posted at 22:21]

  • 1st: Sweden
  • 2nd: Russia
  • 3rd: Italy

(I think Cyprus and Serbia could do well (charming melody and self-assertive lyric respectively) but will be further down the ranking)
