Google already seems to know who will win this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev and take the crystal-microphone after the voting procedure on Saturday. Four days prior to the grand final, the browser goes deeper on finding out the countries “most likely” earning votes the most.
It’s not that the contest is cheated or manipulated, as some every year keep on pointing but Google got to take a look at this by the estimated number of searchs every act got for the past months to date. And there is a clear result: France’s Alma and her entry “Requiem” will win the contest on Saturday, according to Google. She would be joined on the top 5 by hot fan favorites Italy, Bulgaria, Australia and Portugal, respectively.
Check complete results below:
As you can see, Google is also predicting that Bulgaria, Israel, Croatia, Ireland, The Netherlands, Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Switzerland and Serbia will be qualifying tomorrow from the 2nd semifinal. Nevertheless, they didn’t help out the entries from Albania and Finland which could not make it last night.
France’s glory at the Eurovision Song Contest came to a peak point during the 60’s and 70’s when they achieved a total of 5 victories, being the last one in 1977 with Marie Myriam and “L’Oiseau et L’Enfant” and after several disappointing results since Patricia Kaas got their last top 10 placing, they got it back again in Stockholm with Amir’s “J’Ai Cherché“.
Will this result see the light? Not so many time left to discover Europe’s new music queen or king.
