Ukraine, United Kingdom or Sweden, here are the favorites for the victory

From our special correspondent in Turin (Italy)

Who will succeed the Måneskins and their song Shut up and Good at the Eurovision Song Contest? The answer will drop after midnight, in the night from Saturday to Sunday. Meanwhile the predictions are going well and 20 minutes was involved in the game. Here are our predictions for the Top 5.

After suffering a cruel double 0 scored by the public and the juries last year, our British neighbors could experience an opposite scenario in Turin and do a 12-point raid. Their hopes are pinned on TikTok star Sam Ryder, where he has more than 12 million subscribers, a solid base of potential supporters. His song, Space man, allows him to unfold his entire vocal range, with a power equal to his sympathetic face. This power ballad in any case it has everything to conquer European radios.

Big favorites among bookmakers, who estimate their chances of winning at almost 60%, the Kalush Orchestra group could offer Ukraine its third trophy in the competition, after those collected in 2004 and 2016. The song, Stefaniaat the crossroads between hip-hop and folkloric sounds it is at the top of the basket of this edition, but if it succeeds, its qualities will undoubtedly be eclipsed by the symbolic dimension of this Ukrainian triumph.

Two wins and another six top 10 in the last ten editions: Sweden is a stronghold of Eurovision. Always keep an eye out for her when it comes to favorites. With Keep me closera thrilling pop ballad, sung by its charismatic writer, Cornelia Jakobs and her biting voice, the Scandinavian country seems to have the perfect package this year to equal Ireland’s winning record in the race by winning her seventh trophy.

A duo disguised as yellow wolves, flanked by a DJ in a golden astronaut suit … Subwoofers are the kind of offerings we only see at Eurovision. The concept is whimsical, but not ridiculous – well, okay, it is possible to experience shivers of discomfort when the two wags link “yum yum” (“yum yum”) together. Give that wolf a banana it is an effective electro-pop song, which stays in the head and makes you want to dance: it is good mood, it makes you smile and relaxes the atmosphere. We can easily imagine children adoring and begging their parents to vote for this title.

To complete our Top 5, we could have cited Italy, Spain or Greece, which bookmakers place in the fifth winner, but we dare to make a bolder prognosis by betting on Healthy body. This song in Serbian (and in Latin) deals with hygiene and evokes the fate of artists in Serbia who do not benefit from social security coverage. Konstrakta sings while washing his hands: there is something intriguing and captivating about this performance that captivates the audience with the gimmick of clapping during the chorus.
