2017 Breaking News Latest News ESC United Team’s Predictions for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest Final By Zack Kerr Posted on May 13, 2017 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr 2017 has certainly been a year to remember for the Eurovision Song Contest. But it will soon be over tonight when the winner is finally announced. The ESC United team here in Kyiv has provided their individual predictions ranked from 1 to 26. We then compiled our predictions to make one team prediction. DISCLAIMER: These are our predictions!!! This does not reflect our personal taste or represents the team of ESC United. We are not going to lie – this was so difficult to choose, but in the end, we believe this is a three-horse race between Italy, Bulgaria, and Portugal. Still, it is Eurovision, and the unexpected has happened. So there is very much the possibility that an outside dark horse can steal the victory away. In our combined prediction, Italy squeezes past Bulgaria by a slim margin. Portugal is not too far behind. The difference from these three and the other songs is much larger. Could this be a repeat of 2015 in which three songs (Sweden, Russia, Italy) monopolized the majority of points? You have heard our predictions, but what about you, the readers? What do you think?
