Our players are rather good at predicting the outcomes of Melodifestivalen, with one exception. Last year, over 45% accurately predicted Tusse’s win.
Back in 2020, however, over 80% of our players predicted that Dotter would win Melodifestivalen 2020. Meanwhile, eventual winners The Mamas received only 9% of the predictions.
Back in 2019, 2/3 of our players accurately predicted Jon Lundvik’s win. And the year before that, over 2/3 predicted that Benjamin Ingrosso would win.
Members of the ESCXTRA team will be thrilled with this result, as they also selected “Hold Me Closer” 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 10 out of 22 selections correctly. Let’s see how many of tonight’s three entries will have been predicted correctly.
With this being the last national finals of the 2022 season, this is your last time to secure some points!
