Wait, did Eurovision 2023 already happen..?

Fear not, there’s still some time before the Grand Final takes place. Sweden has emerged victorious for the second time in a row in the OGAE Poll of 2023.

Every year, many Eurovision fans eagerly await the results of the annual OGAE poll. OGAE is made up of over 40 fan clubs from around the world. For the poll, they cast votes in Eurovision’s classic 12 to 1 points system. With the OGAE voting historically taking place across April, it is one of the first opportunities for fans to discover how a significant number of real people are reacting to this year’s entries. Last year’s poll was won by Sweden as well, represented by Cornelia Jakobs with ‘Hold Me Closer’.

A total of 4853 people voted on the poll. From the 37 countries who are participating this year, 29 of them received points in the voting.

I have been watching Eurovision since I was a young girl, but I've been actively involved in the contest since 2016. I am really passionate about it and it's basically all I talk about from January till June. My favorite genre is probably pop/rock, but I enjoy a good ballad every now and then. I have been visiting Eurovision in Concert for a long time and I've been to 2 editions of Eurovision so far!
