Over the last past two weeks, you have been submitting your predictions for the third round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In our fourth national final of the season, you were asked to predict the winner of Eurosong. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Irish ticket to Turin!
For the first time since 2015, Ireland will select their entry for Eurovision via a national final – marking a return of Eurosong, again as part of The Late Late Show. 320 songs were submitted to RTÉ for the selection. Six songs will take part in the show which will be held on Friday 4th February. The winning entry will be selected by a combination of a national jury, international jury and public vote.
The running order for tonight is as follows:
- Patrick O’Sullivan – “One Night, One Kiss, One Promise”
- Janet Grogan – “Ashes of Yesterday”
- Brendan Murray – “Real Love”
- Miles Graham – “Yeah, We’re Gonna Get Out It”
- Rachel Goode – “I’m Loving Me”
- Brooke – “That’s Rich”
Let’s take a look at who YOU predict they will choose!
During this round of Eurovision Prediction 2022, 364 of you have predicted who you think will take victory in Ireland. Without further ado, here are the entries that YOU have predicted to win in order of frequency, from most to least:
|Rank||Artist||Song||Number of predictions||Percentage|
|1||Brooke Scullion||That’s Rich||230||63.2|
|2||Patrick O’Sullivan||One Night, One Kiss, One Promise||54||14.8|
|3||Janet Grogan||Ashes of Yesterday||46||12.6|
|4||Brendan Murray||Real Love||17||4.7|
|5||Rachel Goode||I’m Loving Me||15||4.1|
|6||Miles Graham||Yeah, We’re Gonna Get Out of It||2||0.5|
As the only statistics we have for Eurovision Prediction 2015 – the last year Ireland held a national final – are the overall results, consider this a clean slate!
Members of the ESCXTRA team may be delighted by this result, as they also selected “That’s Rich” as their winner in our XTRA Decides feature.
After 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!
In 2021, our 363 prediction players predicted the correct national winners 7 out of 13 times. The year before, in 2020, 10 of out 27 times…an all-time low. To be fair, 2020 was a very unpredictable year in general. In 2019, our Eurovision Prediction players collectively predicted 16 out of 29 national final winners correctly. In 2018, your record was 19 out of 30.
So far, we count 25 national finals for 2022, so there will be PLENTY of points up for grabs!
