    Can't believe it didn't get through to the final.

    Croatia is pretty good, in fairness. That and Romania were surprise non-qualifiers for me.

    Yeah, it wasn't a favourite of mine but I had it pegged to qualify to. But who knows, I gave Czechia 10 points... wouldn't trust me to have a finger on the pulse ;)

    So after 5 rounds we have a good block at the top of the table emerging. I'll do a full table at the half way point. Next we're onto the votes of the Wolfcastle Jury.

    4 points|Romania|
    5 points|The Netherlands|
    6 points|France|
    7 points|Belgium|
    8 points|Italy|

    And 10 Points go to…….
    SWITZERLAND


    With 12 points going to ...
    ..
    .
    ICELAND!

    12 Points to Dadi moves them up a little, but not much.
    1|Italy |33|
    2|Switzerland|29|
    3|Belgium|25|
    4|Iceland|24|
    5|Ireland|21|

    7|Finland|17|
    8|Russia|16|
    9|France|15|
    10|United Kingdom|15|
    Italy are the ones to beat at this stage. Can Switzerland catch them?

    Kolido loves a good glittery purple leotard. Who knew? How has that affected our scores? Not much. Iceland and Ireland are doing a little dance mid table but Italy still holds on.

    *this post does not hold any responsibility for comparisons drawn between the lovely ASLB and any Russian Grannies, real or fictional.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Ukraine finally getting the respect they deserve in this tournament... Should be getting 12 points from everyone, not just me...

    Failing a victory from Ukraine, I'm glad to see Italy hanging in there at #1 at the halfway point.

    Despite Molly's comparisons, Russia the only country in the current Top 10 I didn't award any points to... :pac:

    EDIT: oh, I also didn't give points to Iceland, but they were who I would have had in 11th place actually...

    The Czech song was one of four "honourable mentions" that just missed out on my top ten. Shame he didn't sound so good live though!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,053 ✭✭✭✭ Hello 2D Person Below


    In order to get the true winner of the contest, may I suggest removing all the Ireland voters...

    Let the, objective, big boys and girls take it from here.


    The rest can partake in the Junior Eurovision.

    4 points|Serbia|
    5 points|United Kingdom|

    8 points|Cyprus|

    And of course Volcano Man loves a bit of rock, so his 10 points go to

    FINLAND



    But his heart has been stolen by the velvet tones of Flo Rida and he's given his 12 points to
    ..
    .
    SAN MARINO!
    So where does this leave our leaderboard? Well.... no change at the top:

    UNITED KINGDOM!
    Australia with their first points of the night from Liz, nothing for the table leaders at all allows Ireland time to make a move on the top spot. Could the comeback start here?

    RUSSIA



    And 12 points go to..
    ..
    .
    SWITZERLAND!
    No points for Ireland means they fall back down to fight for third with Iceland but a big 12 for Switzerland means the chase is truly on now! Italy fail to score again. Everyone else has started to bunch up in the midfield.

    Sambucus nigra steps up to the podium with their top 8 scores now:

    1 point|Portugal|
    2 points|Belgium|
    3 points|Russia|
    4 points|Australia|
    5 points|France|
    6 points|Lithuania|
    7 points|Switzerland|
    8 points|Italy|10 Points from Sambucusians are reserved for

    ICELAND and Dadi Freyr



    But the top 12 points are awareded to.
    ..
    .
    UKRAINE!


    Here's the top ten. I'll post a full list before I get to Speckle's points.

    1|Italy |75|
    2|Switzerland|65|
    3| Iceland|58|
    4|Ukraine|51|
    5|Ireland|48|
    6|Finland|45|
    7|France|45|
    8|Belgium|42|
    9|Croatia|35|
    10|United Kingdom|32|


    With 10 points separating Switzerland and Italy, it's within Speckle's power to win it for the Swiss. Iceland are too far behind now to make a play for the crown so it's down to these final 2.
    So this is it, the final countdown.
