Not long left now, until we know who the official Eurovision Fan Clubs – best known as OGAE –  across the world will crown as the winner, ahead of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. By this point, it has become pretty clear, that it’s a horse race between Finland and Sweden. The two Nordic country has remained on top all the way through so far, and it looks like only a few points will separate them in the end. Today, more fuel was added to the fire, with votes from Lithuania, Ireland and Belgium.

Results from Lithuania

Starting off today’s batch of votes are Lithuania, with a total of 23 voters, the results have been revealed as follows:

  • Sweden 🇸🇪 – 12 points
  • Finland 🇫🇮 – 10 points
  • Italy 🇮🇹 – 8 points
  • Austria 🇦🇹 – 7 points
  • Norway 🇳🇴 – 6 points
  • Slovenia 🇸🇮 – 5 points
  • France 🇫🇷 – 4 points
  • Serbia 🇷🇸 – 3 points
  • Spain 🇪🇸 – 2 points
  • Armenia 🇦🇲 – 1 point

Results from Ireland

Next up is Ireland, who had a far larger impact on their voting, with a total of 216 votes being cast from the Irish fan club, with the following results:

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

Results from Belgium

Then finally, the last votes from this batch, comes from Belgium. Where the interest is just as high, with a few more voters, 226 voters to be exact, and with the following outcome:

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

As pointed out in the beginning, it is pretty clear that it is all about Sweden and Finland duking it out for the win, the two Nordic countries even took top 2 in the 3 fan clubs, sharing the 12’s and 10’s. It is however noticeable as well, how Norway, Austria and France all as well, also finished within the three club’s top 10.

The top 5 in the Irish and Belgian club even had the same five countries in the top 5, just slightly rearranged, while the Lithuanians did have a quite similar result as well, just slightly varied from the other two clubs.

With all that in mind, the results are as follows, with just a few clubs left now and with the full results expected to be revealed later this week:

Results have barely changed at all, since the last batch of votes, the only changes on the scoreboard would be Spain and Israel swapping spots, while Serbia and Switzerland now sharing 15th place with 13 points each and Armenia and Cyprus now sharing 17th place with 7 points each.

Everything remains unchanged when it comes to each country’s placement on the scoreboard, while clearly, the results for the leading countries are just slowly increasing.

It is quite clear, with only a handful of clubs left to vote now, it is a race between Finland and Sweden. The gap has gone from 11 points, to only 9 points now, it might not seem as a big deal, if the two countries keep taking the top 2 spots, however, the most interesting thing is, that Finland still haven’t announced their votes.

There are only 7 clubs left to vote, and since it’s not possible to vote for your own country, Finland can only receive points from 6 more clubs, while Sweden who have presented their votes, can still get points from the remaining clubs. Could Finland be shooting themselves in the foot soon?
