Aussievision Jury revisited - Ninni from Finland and Jakob from Sweden


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 so 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 we have two members:

Ninni from Finland


Her original rankings

1. Portugal

2. Netherlands

3. Serbia

4. UK

5. San Marino

37. Australia

Who is your favourite and has that changed?

My favourite is San Marino. That song just makes me really happy and smiley. My favourite used to be Serbia and I still very much love it but I think I just want to feel more positive.

Who do you think will win?

My guess would be Sweden. John Lundvik has so much charisma and the song is really catchy, it should appeal both to the juries and to the televoters.

Who do you think will do better than expected?

I think Serbia will place in the top ten. Especially now after seeing the staging, it’s wonderful!

Who is your potential shock to not qualify?

I would say Cyprus just because it’s too similar to Fuego and because the live vocals aren’t that great..

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

It will probably place somewhere in the top 10 because of the impressive staging. I’m still not a huge fan of the song

Any other comments or predictions?

I think Finland will qualify despite people being really negative about it!

Jakob from Sweden


His original rankings

1. Netherlands

2. Cyprus

3. France

4. Azerbaijan

5. San Marino

29. Australia

Who is your favourite and has that changed?

After a few months stanning Duncan (no, lovely as it is, his bum has nothing to do with that) I'm back with Bilal who blew me away the first time I saw him in the French semi. Think I tweeted something about him being a star and what a star he is. I'd be more than happy for either to win. Same goes for Italy.

Who do you think will win?

Tough one - the rehearsals haven't made it clearer either. I'd go with Netherlands, France or Italy... or maybe Iceland if Europe is in a mood.

Who do you think will do better than expected?

Denmark - it's very lovely and very Danish isn't it. A few synths and we'd be back to the Danish pop schlager years of the 80s

Who is your potential shock to not qualify?

Norway - the more I hear that crap the angrier I get.

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

I had Australia at 29 when I did my ranking for you and that hasn't changed. Lovely as KMH is I just don't get the song and I never will. That said from what I've seen the staging is spectacular, fits the song perfectly and I'd say she has a Top 15 placing in the bag. Oh, and because of her new single I've rediscovered Benny Hill's "Ernie, the fastest milkman in the West". Thank you Kate!

Any other comments or predictions?

My comment about Ernie was very much a genuine one. Best music video ever made.

Thank you to our Scandinavian legends!
