Germany Rules The World?

Posted by DINRIL on May 11, 2007

Once again the BBC News website has canvassed the opinion of fans, pundits and Eurovision experts as to who’ll be triumphing in Helsinki on Saturday night, and the result is a surprising one. After totting up all the votes, supplied this year by the likes of Belgium’s only ever winner Sandra Kim and Romania’s 2006 entrant Mihai Traistariu,  Germany’s Roger Cicero has come out on top with his swing number Women Rule The World.

The rest of the top ten was a tad more predictable, featuring Switzerland, Serbia, Georgia, Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Belarus and Russia. Of these, only two (Switzerland and Cyprus) have failed to make it through to the final.

However, Cicero’s victory in the poll could be considered a surprise one since he hasn’t exactly been among the favourites. Quite whether it has anything at all to do with his odds dropping dramatically (now 18-1 according to Paddy Power) remains to be seen.

Speaking of bets, Team Eurovision is still celebrating the fact that Latvia made it through to the final, since we put a £5 each way bet on them weeks ago when their odds were 50-1. Should they finish in the top four tomorrow night (and it’s beginning to look like a distinct possibility), then we will be quids in come Sunday morning…..
