The poll results are in and a clear majority wants to see “Shine” by Natalia Kelly. The song received 42% leaving the competition in the dust. Austria is going to choose their song fuer Malmo tonight and after last year’s failure to qualify there will be a bit more pressure on this year representative.

The Bandaloop finished 2nd receiving 27% of the votes. This entry has a strong fan base so we at ESC UNITED strongly urge not to count out this one just yet.

Full Results

1. Natalia Kelly “Shine” – 42%
2. The Bandaloop – Back to Fantasty – 27%
3. Elija – Give me a sign – 15%
4. Falco Luneau – Rise above the night – 12%
5. Yela – Feels like home – 4%

    1 – The Bandaloop
    2 – Natalia Kelly
    3 – Yela
    4 – Falco Luneau
    5 – Elija (of course, I knew it before)

    Looks unfair given that both Falco and Elija are ORF horses in the race, and their songs are just mediocre.

    Austria had a controversal song last year and it did not work for them, maybe it is better to play it “safe”

    The Netherlands had a SHINE in 2009 and it did not shine at all despite the song being my favourite of 2009. So it Austria picks SHINE, lets hope it indeed shines in Malmo.

    Fingers crossed for Natalia and the Bandaloop!

    Since Natalia is less controversial, I cross my fingers a little harder for her maybe 🙂

    This was of course rajo speaking!
