The counting of the OGAE votes continues further on now, and next in line was Australia and Iceland who now has revealed who scored best with the two clubs. To put it short, it was definitely a change, but not a big one.

Slowly, more and more OGAE clubs are revealing their scores, and the OGAE Poll 2023, which started more than three weeks ago now, is now counting a total of votes from 15 countries. France started it all, then followed by Slovenia, Cyprus, Spain, Türkiye, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Norway, Estonia, Armenia, Albania, Denmark & Hungary. In true Eurovision style, the votes are revealed in the same way, with each of the OGAE club revealing their points from 1 to 12.

With all that in mind, let’s now have a look at the scores from Australia and then Iceland.

Results from Australia

Here are the full voting of OGAE Australia:

  • Finland 🇫🇮 – 12 points
  • Sweden 🇸🇪 – 10 points
  • Austria 🇦🇹 – 8 points
  • France 🇫🇷 – 7 points
  • Norway 🇳🇴 – 6 points
  • United Kingdom 🇬🇧 – 5 points
  • Czechia 🇨🇿 – 4 points
  • Cyprus 🇨🇾 – 3 points
  • Serbia 🇷🇸 – 2 points
  • Moldova 🇲🇩 – 1 point

An impressive amount of 146 votes were cast, when determining the Australian points.

Results from Iceland

Here are the full voting of OGAE Iceland:

  • Finland 🇫🇮 – 12 points
  • Sweden 🇸🇪 – 10 points
  • France 🇫🇷 – 8 points
  • Norway 🇳🇴 – 7 points
  • Italy 🇮🇹 – 6 points
  • Austria 🇦🇹 – 5 points
  • United Kingdom 🇬🇧 – 4 points
  • Czechia 🇨🇿 – 3 points
  • Israel 🇮🇱 – 2 points
  • Moldova 🇲🇩 – 1 point

Despite a far lower amount of votes, the amount is still relatively high compared to Iceland’s small population, a total of 55 votes were cast here.

Finland catching up, Sweden still first

With the two added sets of points, we can see that Sweden still remains on the top of the scoreboard, despite the two lost sets of 12 points, but two times 10 points still helps a lot. The gap down to Finland is now just 22 points, so the question that remains at this point, is if Finland can close in on Sweden even more?

Top 5 overall remains the same after the last update, however France has now broken into the 3 digit score, with both Norway and Austria slowly creeping into the same territory as well.

The total of votes submitted has now increased to 1359 and keep in mind, it’s still counting. Over the next 2 weeks, we shall see the remaining scores from the rest of the clubs.

As a reminder, last year had more than 3,500 people voting across 43 OGAE national clubs. In the end, Sweden could claim victorious in the OGAE 2022 Poll with Cornelia Jacobs and her song “Hold Me Closer“. Do keep in mind, this poll is only counted between the Eurovision Fan Clubs, and will have no influence on the final results in Liverpool whatsoever.
