The hour of truth is getting nearer. Rehearsals begin today for Eurovision 2015. Before we know anything about how each country is going to stage their entry, how they are going to come across live, how much pyros, wind machine, backing singers, props, etc. each hopeful is throwing in the mix, people have already been betting on songs for a while.

As the D-day approaches, who is leading the way with the betting houses? Sweden is currently the leader, but really closely followed by Italy and Australia. Estonia is lagging behind in fourth place and the top-5 is completed by Finland. The image below has the fifteen highest ranked countries by different betting houses.

This is, of course, a mere indication and a lot of things can still change once the public reacts to rehearsals. If anyone can remember how Austria and The Netherlands were placed with the bookies before rehearsals start you will see that what actually happens on stage is key to success.

The first countries will take on stage today. Will there be any odds shortening or drifting afterwards? Only time will tell, but for now let’s just sit back and see what’s in the hat from each contestant.


The biggest Mexican Eurovision fan (that may be a lie, but hope no one will verify) now living in and loving London. Slightly sentimental which is why I love a good power ballad and sufficiently trashy to love a good (Suzy)shake. When not eurovisioning, the music closest to my heart is (almost always) in Spanish, and love everything by Laura Pausini, Rosana, Ricardo Arjona, Gloria Trevi, Pablo Alborán and many, many more... And I hate Estonia's 'Everybody'.
