At this point anybody else than Alika would be a shock winner. Ollie is great and would be a deserving winner but I think Alika will get like 80% in superfinal.
I don't know if it'll be that
much of a landslide, I can see Ollie putting up a better fight than that.. but it does feel like she's the one to beat.
At least the odds aren't giving anyone else much of a chance. Not that they've always been correct.. but in the cases they've been wrong (Uku in 2020, Verona in 2017), you could tell the local opinion didn't quite agree with the odds. Right now, the two seem to align pretty well. Whether that means a landslide or not, I suppose we'll see.
I guess I'm in a reasonably good position of being pretty pleased with almost every song that could win.
I obviously prefer some more than others, but unless MIA pulls off a shock victory, I don't see myself disliking the winner at least.
I could even live with Meelik or Anett, tho' they certainly wouldn't be my first choice. Realistically tho', it'll be Alika or Ollie. Sissi, Janek and Bedwetters could stand a chance, but Alika and Ollie kind of steal their thunder. Of the two main competitors, I prefer Venom as a studio song but Bridges as a live performance. Both have their strengths and weaknesses and things that could be improved by May if they win.
Ollie would probably be the safer option for the semi, but Alika would probably do better with the juries in the final. There are several ballads potentially waiting to be picked, so she could have pretty strong competition! Then again, there could be more rock songs showing up too, we've hardly heard all the (potential) entries. At this point, who knows what the final lineup will look like in May.
In any case, we'll have to wait and see what happens come February 11th! If Alika does landslide, I guess our televoters have spoken and we'll just have to hope she can stand out amongst the other ballads and appeal to enough people to make the final at least.
