Over the last past week, you have been submitting your predictions for the latest round of Eurovision Prediction 2022. In one of the four finals due to take place tonight, you were asked to predict the winner of Vidbir. Now, let’s take a look at who you collectively expect to win the Ukrainian ticket to Turin!
The winner will be selected via the 50/50 combination of votes from both the televoters and the professional jury. The jury consists of Jamala, Tina Karol and Yaroslav Lodigin. Masha Efrosinina will be the main host, with Eurovision 2017 host Timur Miroshnychenko hosting the green room.
The running order is as follows:
- Cloudless – All Be Alright
- Michael Soul – Demons
- Our Atlantic – Moia Liubov
- Barleben – Hear My Words
- Kalush Orchestra – Stefania
- Roxolana – Girlzzzz
- Wellboy – Nozzy Bossy
- Alina Pash – Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors
Let’s take a look at who YOU predict they will choose!
During this round of Eurovision Prediction 2022, 311 of you have predicted who you think will take victory in Ukraine. 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||Alina Pash||Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors||216||69.5|
|5||Cloudless||All Be Alright||6||1.9|
|6||Our Atlantic||Moia liubov||1||0.3|
|6||Barleben||Hear My Words||1||0.3|
Our players have a rather patchy history with Vidbir. Back in 2020, almost 1/3 of our players predicted that KRUTЬ would win with “99”, while only 12% predicted GO_A’s victory.
Back in 2019, however, almost 60% of our players predicted that MARUV’s win. Of course, she ended up withdrawing from Eurovision, but we still give out the points!
Members of the ESCXTRA team would be delighted by this result, as they also selected “Shadows Of Forgotten Ancestors” 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, our players have guessed 2 out of 7 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s four entries will have been predicted correctly.
With 25 national finals for 2022 overall, there are still PLENTY of points up for grabs!
