    "The favourites to win the [1999] Contest came from Iceland's Selma with "All Out of Luck", and Cyprus's Marlain with "Tha 'Ne Erotas", after an internet poll by fans. But, while Iceland finished second to Sweden (the country's best showing in the contest), Cyprus failed to inspire televotes, finishing second last with only two points, both from the United Kingdom."

    (ps: tha'ne erotas is brilliant and my second favourite of that year. clearly, i am the perfect case study for the memorial award.)

    but i do understand that kate ryan was the first infamous example of this, i just forgot about her because televote-only years were just sort of weird with semifinal voting in general lol. Kate Ryan Memorial Award it is!

    Don't forget Getter Jaani! ;-)

    I think Italy, Belgium and Sweden are the most probable winners. Probably Italy, then Sweden, then Belgium 3rd, though I'd wish it'd be the other way round.

    Big fail: France, Bulgaria, Moldova

    Dark horse: atm I can't really see a dark horse as most songs imho are clear to qualify or fail. I'm not on the fence about any song, tbh.

    Some jury favourites: Italy, Belgium, Poland, UK, Hungary, Finland

    Some telephone voters favourites: Sweden, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Estonia, Greece

    won't probably qualify: Moldova, San Marino, Malta, Iceland, Czech Republic, Austria, Norway, Israel, Montenegro

    Semi 1 Jury Top 10


    Semi 1 Televoting Top 10



    Semi 2 Jury Top 10


    Semi 2 Televoting Top 10



    The winner will be one of those 5:


    Dark horses for the Top 5 could be:


    Bottom 6 in the final:

    I have a gut feeling will have a hard time reaching out on the stage the way it does in the music video

    Italy will win both jury and televote by 50 points.
    Bulgaria and Armenia rounds off the top 3.
    Portugal will flop in the semi finals.
    Lithuania will miss the finals by only 6 points.

    Re: The ESC 2017 Speculation Thread: the dark horses, the big fails, the jury favs, the winner etc.

    will win both the jury and the televote
    will be bottom. 20-25th
    will fail to qualify because it won't translate that good on stage. Will actually be bottom at the semi-final
    will fail to qualify for the first time OR it won't even perform because Ukraine will not alow her to get in the country
    will be 3rd overall
    will fail to qualify because of the jury. Just like Montenegro in 2013
    will have it's best result since 2006
    will qualify but will only be top 15 due to the staging. Like Cyprus 2012
    will qualify but will have it's worst result in history. Top 15
    will not qualify
    will be top 10
    will not qualify
    will qualify but will only be top 15. However it will be it's best result since 2007
    will do good with the jury but terrible with the televote. Like Malta 2016
    will not qualify
    will not qualify
    will qualify
    will qualify but it won't be top 10

    And I think it's all for now hahaha

    Was just going to write that!

    The same with France, it sounds great in studio version. But her performance in the Ukrainian final (?) was not impressive at all. She did not look as relaxed as in the music video.
