Let’s take a look at guidance is giving us in week 4:


Netherlands – Duncan Laurence – This was the bookies favorite early on, a revealing music video and a haunting refrain have most likely put this at the top.  Duncan had a great weekend in his home country hosting Eurovision in Concert. He won new fans, proved he could deliver the personal song in an arena environment and was swarmed by the press. He is still the favorite to win Eurovision 2019.

Michaela Pace was noticeably absent from Eurovision in Concert – perhaps building to the suspense that her staging and voice will take in Tel Aviv. It’s been far too long since Malta has made it to the grand final at Eurovision. I know that many people will be rooting for them.

With the pre-parties in Riga and London coming in this weekend – we will keep an eye on how things may adjust the prediction tool. Should we change the tool to predict Amsterdam 2020 versus Rotterdam 2020? or do you think this is still an open race even though it’s Duncan’s to lose?
