Eurovision Prediction

RESULTS: Who is leading after Round 1 of Eurovision Prediction 2020?

The dream of being 100% correct is already dead for 167 of you!

Over the past couple of weeks, a record-breaking 225 of you took part in round 1 of Eurovision Prediction 2020! This time, it was your task to predict who you thought would win the Albanian national final. Yesterday evening, Arilena Ara won Festivali i Këngës 58 and therefore the Albanian ticket to Rotterdam!

Calculating your points!

As we revealed prior to yesterday evening’s final, the most popular answer amongst our players in this round by far was Elvana Gjata. Unfortunately for the 75% of you who picked her…she lost to Arilena by only 3 points. Although, Arilena was indeed the second most popular answer, with 37 of you selecting correctly and still in contention for a 100% correct record.

As stated in the rules, when full rankings of the participating entries are revealed during the live broadcast, we use the full extent of our scoring system. Therefore, predicting the winning entry earns you 12 points as there were 12 finalists. Predicting the runner-up earns you 11 points and so on. Unfortunately, if you chose an artist that failed to qualify from the semi-finals, then it is nil points for you this time.

Here is the scoreboard!

So what does this mean for the scoreboard? Well, with the majority of our players opting for the incorrect answer, we have 37 out of 225 players tied for the top spot! A special mention to Vasos A whose prediction of Sara Bajraktari made him the only player to be on 10 points!

See where you stand and have a look at the scoreboard below in all of its glory!

Stay tuned for Round 2!

Thank you to everyone who took part in Round 1. We hope the crushing loss of Elvana at this early stage won’t deter you from participating for the rest of the game! Stay tuned for Round 2, which we expect to take place later this week as Georgia are due to select their artist on New Years Eve!

If you missed this round but still want to participate, there is still plenty of time to take part, and all to play for! You can learn more about Eurovision Prediction below:

Ever since I saw Helena Paparizou's triumph at Eurovision in 2005 (at the tender age of 6), I have been crazy about Eurovision. From the regional native language bops and shrieky female-led balladry to the sophisticated avant garde pop songs and chart-friendly EDM, I love everything about this cultural phenomenon. I'm currently working as a Delivery Manager in a software development team.
