Like them, Bárbara has been leading the views for both the studio version and the live performance, much like Conan Osíris last year. However, it’s important to note that following his performance last week, Jimmy P has gained a lot of momentum. He’s certainly one to watch tonight for that reason. Costa and Nathan noted this in our Eurovision Prediction video, in which they …

Dotter has a statistical lead in terms of views and Spotify streams, but with such an intricate age-based voting system, this is all very unpredictable. “Bulletproof” may be popular with Eurovision fans, but will this convert into a win in Stockholm tonight?
