The voting order has been revealed for Saturday’s grand final where 43 spokespeople will first reveal their respective countries’ jury vote before the televote decides the winner.
Unsurpisingly, a lot of countries will have their votes presented by someone related to Eurovision. Naviband from Belarus, OG3NE from The Netherlands, Jana Burcheska from Macedonia, Hovig from Cyprus, Aleksander Walmann & JOWST from Norway, and Tako Gachechiladze from Georgia all represented their respective countries last year.
Furthermore, Ireland will see their votes given by 2016 representative Nicky Byrne. Similarly, Russia’s 2000 artist Alsou will share the country’s votes.
In previous years, the voting order left fans scrambling for clues on who’d win. The producers would make the voting order based on predicted televote and jury scores from each country, all to make the voting as exciting as possible. However, no such analysis can be made this year as the voting order was determined weeks ago.
Who do you think will win Eurovision Song Contest 2018? Do you think the voting will be exciting this year?
