Australia picks up points from Ukraine in Euro Jury 2021
Since 2013 fan site Eurovoix has been holding 'Euro Jury' a contest that sees artists from all over Europe vote on the songs and combined it with a public vote.
The last two Eurovision winning songs 'Toy' and 'Arcade' were former Euro Jury champions while it also has a strong record of predicting high scoring jury songs.
When looking purely at which songs former Eurovision, national final and Junior Eurovision artists go for, it successfully picked 'Sound of Silence' as a clear jury winner, while jury favourites like 'Don't Come Easy', 'Nobody But You' and 'Too Late for Love' all finished high in their respective years.
So far in 2021 the Top 10 of eight nations have been revealed and overnight Ukraine's votes came out with Montaigne's 'Technicolour' in their Top 10.
The full results and placings won't be known until a live Euro Jury show on May 7 (European time) but for now each nation's Top 10 (with Top 3 in bold) is revealed.
