Aussievision jury revisited - Joao from Portugal and Chris from USA


For the Aussievision song review podcast series we went out to 12 Europeans and 12 Australians to get their full 41 song order. This was way back in March. Over the next few days we'll be going back to some of these jury members to get their thoughts ahead of the live show last week. Next up is:

Joao from Portugal


His original March jury vote

1. Italy

2. Netherlands

3. Portugal

4. Greece

5. Austria

37. Australia

Who is your favourite and has that changed?

My favorite was Italy and it still is

Who do you think will win?

It’s looking very good for The Netherlands

Who do you think will do better than expected?

Probably France and Azerbaijan

Who is your potential shock to not qualify?

Armenia and Portugal (although Portugal is not a shock anymore at this point)

How do you think Australia will do and has it changed in your ranking?

It hasn’t changed in my ranking although I think staging looks very good. I think it’s a sure qualifier right now but I don’t know how far it will reach in the final. Maybe top 15

Chris from USA via Australia


His original March jury vote

1. Iceland

2. Norway

3. Malta

4. Italy

5. Switzerland

25. Australia

Who is your favourite and has that changed?

Still Iceland. I like it even more now

Who do you think will win?

This is a tough one. I think it's still between Netherlands and Italy

Who do you think will do better than expected?

Can I say Australia. Based on expectations before arriving

Who is your potential shock to not qualify?

Norway. Maybe it'll be just TOO cheesy

How do you think Australia will do and has it changed in your ranking?

Australia has gone way up for me. I still prefer 2000 and Whatever as a song but I think this has a shot at winning now.

Any other comments or predictions?

I feel I was too harsh on Cyprus. Who cares that it's Fuego? That was a great song. I also like Portugal way less now too. Also Iceland COULD do this.
