Over the past couple of days, you have been taking part in round eight of Eurovision Prediction 2018. Alekseev was crowned the winner in Belarus last night, whereas Vanja Radovanović was victorious tonight in Montenegro. Therefore, let’s see how the results of the show affect our scoreboard!
Calculating your points!
As stated in the rules, our scoring system varies depending on what results are revealed during the broadcast. In Belarus, we were shown a full leaderboard during the televised show. Therefore, predicting winner Alekseev earned you 10 points, predicting runner-up Gunesh earned you 9 points and so on all the way down to last placed Adagio earning you 1 point.
In Montenegro, we use a hybrid of our two systems. The top three placings were revealed, therefore predicting Vanja earns you 5 points, predicting Katarina earns you 4 points and Lorena earns you 3 points. However, as placings for Nina and Ivana who were eliminated in the first round of voting were not revealed, predicting either of these earns the minimum 1 point.
Here is the scoreboard!
So what does this mean for the scoreboard? As we revealed prior to each show, most of you predicted Alekseev and Nina Petković to win in Belarus and Montenegro respectively! Whilst Alekseev did go on to win, it was second most popular answer Vanja who secured the Montenegrin victory.
Joana remains on top of our scoreboard once again, with her consistency being rewarded. Despite predicting three entries that went on to finish second, her only significant loss of points came in the United Kingdom which the rest of our contenders also suffered.
Ana F and Jack R are our most significant casualties in this round, dropping from joint second place to joint tenth place after gaining just one point in Montenegro. Emily benefits moving into second place on her own after matching Joana once again in predicting Katarina in Montenegro. As you’ve guessed by now, all of the contenders predicted Alekseev so this had no effect at the top of our rankings.
Vanja’s success in Montenegro allows a group of players who were bubbling just outside the top ten to move into the top ten. Leading the charge is Simon C, who was our highest placed player after round seven to predict Vanja to win. Other beneficiaries from Vanja’s result are Alex S, Matthew, Mike S and Ryan C who all climb into the top 10 and are three points behind Joana.
