Half the points given out for Grand Final – who will win?

Tonight half of the points for tomorrow’s grand final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest were given out. The juries were voting in the jury final, and question is now, which countries are in the running to win this year’s contest?

Russia is still mentioned by fans, press and bookmakers as the top favourite to win, but Australia’s Dami Im has sneaked into the race lately, and together with Ukraine’s Jamala she is not to be ruled out. Iveta representing Armenia might still be able to win, and can we be entirely sure that Amir from France won’t get back into the game?

In order to give you an idea about who might make it, we watched the jury final with several team members, some in the arena (A) and others in the press centre (PC). We asked them all, among which three countries will the 2016 winner be found?

Charlotte Jensen, Denmark (PC) Australia Russia Armenia
Tommy Engström, Sweden (A) Australia Russia Armenia
Elvir, Bosnia (PC) Australia Russia Ukraine
David, Canada (PC) Australia Russia France
Giannis, Greece (A) Australia Russia Armenia
Josef, Czech Republic (PC) Armenia Russia Ukraine
Jens Erik, Denmark (PC) Australia Russia Armenia
