How to use our new Eurovision Prediction platform
For the first time ever, we have launched a special platform for you to make your predictions for all of this season’s national finals. To do this, simply register for our new platform with one easy click! Once you enter our Eurovision Prediction platform, you will be able to choose your own username and your nationality.
Then, once each national final has its final line-up chosen, with exceptions for selections such as Festivali i Këngës when there’s no time to breathe between the semi-finals and the final, you will be able to select the entry you predict will win. You can change your prediction as many times as you like prior to the deadline. Make sure you click ‘Submit Your Prediction’ to save your choices! Voting will close for each national final at 1am CET on the day the show takes place. You will be able to keep track of all of your predictions and your ranking all from one screen!
Our scoring system
After all of the national finals in the round have taken place and selected their winners, it is time to award the points and for the first time in Eurovision Prediction history (yes, another first!) our scoring system will see a significant change. Each national final will now have equal value to your overall result!
We will calculate your score depending on how close your predicted winners come to winning their respective finals. If you correctly select the national final winner, it’s douze points (12 points) for you. If your prediction finishes in second place, you will earn 10 points. Your prediction finishes 3rd? 8 points. You prediction finishes 4th? 7 points. And so on using the rest of the Eurovision scoring system down to your prediction finishing 10th being adding 1 point to your tally. If your predicted winner fails to make the top 10, it will be a nul points (0 points) round for you!
Of course, if a national final contains less than ten entries then the full extent of the Eurovision scoring system will not be required. In the instance of a national final only declaring the winner or the top three positions, such as in Festivali i Këngës last year, you will receive a new standard score of 5 points if your predicted winner did not reach those highest announced positions. We hope this will keep the competition fairer and more competitive than ever before!
Sometimes a broadcaster chooses to reveal full results after the televised show via the internet, or other outlets, after only announcing the winner or the top positions during the show. In such cases, we will now change the allocated points to reflect these detailed results as long as they are revealed by an official source prior to the end of the Eurovision Prediction 2022 competition which is expected to be on March 12th.
More complicated than you thought, huh?
If you do not submit a prediction for a national final then you will receive 0 points… obviously! At the end of each national final, the points will be assigned and you will receive a rankings update via our Eurovision Prediction platform. Furthermore, we will make sure to notify you via our Eurovision Prediction Facebook page, our Eurovision Prediction Twitter page and here on the ESCXTRA website. The player that accumulates the most points after all the rounds have taken place will be crowned the winner of Eurovision Prediction 2022!
