The next country to cast their votes in the annual OGAE Poll is Bulgaria. After OGAE Slovakia’s vote yesterday, they are the second non-participating country to take vote and also the second ones to award their douze points to “Arcade” by Duncan Laurence.
Four douzes now
The Netherlands have now picked up their fourth top score. Earlier, Slovakia, Armenia and Albania already gave twelve points to Duncan Laurence’s song. It brings him to third place with 82 points, just four points behind Switzerland’s Luca Hänni.
The OGAE Bulgaria votes have brought two new countries to the scoreboard. With their four points, Srbuk now claims nineteenth place in the poll for Armenia. Just behind her, the Albanian entry “Ktheju Tokës” picks up its first two points. Jonida Maliqi is in a shared twentieth place with Hungary and North Macedonia, as Tamara Todevska also picks up a point from their Bulgarian neighbours.
|12 points||The Netherlands|
|1 point||North Macedonia|
“Soldi” still leading
The lead is still in the hands of Italy. Mahmood picks up another top three score, meaning that, so far, only Croatia have not ranked him in their top two. His gap to Switzerland and The Netherlands is sixteen and twenty points respectively.
OGAE Bulgaria’s votes mean we now have 23 countries with points on the board. Some of the most noteworthy entries without a single point just yet are Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke and the United Kingdom’s Michael Rice.
