From Belgium we travel to the United Kingdom who last won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1997. This year they’re represented by SuRie who has represented Belgium twice at the contest as a backing singer.
As ever 50% of the vote is being decided by national juries and 50% by you, the public. This creates the most accurate representation of a result likely to be seen in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest this May in Lisbon.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision and national final participants. Each juror is asked to form a top 10 ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country. On the jury for the United Kingdom are:
- Goldstone – Participated in the United Kingdom’s Eurovision 2018 selection process in Brighton
- Adrian Bax White – Co-writer of “Still in Love With You”, the United Kingdom’s Eurovision 2015 entry
- John Matthews – Co-writer of “Teenage Life”, the United Kingdom’s Eurovision 2006 entry
The results of the British jury from 1 to 12 points is as follows:
- 1 point – The Netherlands – Waylon – Outlaw in ‘Em
- 2 points – Denmark – Rasmussen – Higher Ground
- 3 points – Malta – Christabelle – Taboo
- 4 points – Finland – Saara Aalto – Monsters
- 5 points – Latvia – Laura Rizzotto – Funny Girl
- 6 points – Israel – Netta – Toy
- 7 points – Estonia – Elina Nechayeva – La Forza
- 8 points – Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You
- 10 points – Switzerland – Zibbz – Stones
- 12 points – Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me
This means after twenty five juries the full results so far are follows:
- Israel – Netta Barzilai – Toy – 188 points
- Czech Republic – Mikolas Josef – Lie to Me – 129 points
- Sweden – Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off – 94 points
- Austria – Cesar Sampson – Nobody But You – 75 points
- Switzerland – Zibbz – Stones – 75 points
- Australia – Jessica Mauboy – We Got Love – 70 points
- Bulgaria – Equinox – Bones – 68 points
- Germany – Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone – 67 points
- Norway – Alexander Rybak – That’s How You Write A Song – 61 points
- Belgium – Sennek – A Matter of Time – 56 points
Three countries are still yet to score any points after the results from the United Kingdom.
