Australia receives first points from Latvia in the OGAE Poll for Eurovision 2024





Each year the Eurovision fan clubs from across the world vote for their favourite Eurovision songs ahead of the Contest.


Seven countries have revealed their votes so far in this year's poll and today Australia received its first set of points from Latvia!


Latvia's results are -


  • 12 points - Croatia

  • 10 points - Ukraine

  • 8 points - Switzerland

  • 7 points - Belgium

  • 6 points - Italy

  • 5 points - France

  • 4 points - Sweden

  • 3 points - Denmark

  • 2 points - Lithuania

  • 1 point - AUSTRALIA




How does the OGAE poll work?


The clubs are part of Organisation Générale des Amateurs de l'Eurovision (OGAE) International.


Every year since 2007, OGAE has conducted a pre-Eurovision Song Contest poll in which every national club cast a vote from all entries participating, using the same scoring system as the one at Eurovision.


The act that receives the most votes gets 12 points, the second most receives 10 points, and then 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 point for the remaining acts in descending order of popularity. Just like at Eurovision, OGAE clubs cannot vote for their own country.


On six occasions, the OGAE poll has successfully predicted the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, with a further three OGAE poll winners coming in second or third place.


Previous Eurovision winners that were predicted by the OGAE poll are -


  • 2007 - Serbia - 'Molitva'

  • 2009 - Norway - 'Fairytale'

  • 2012 - Sweden - 'Euphoria'

  • 2013 - Denmark - 'Only Teardrops'

  • 2018 - Israel - 'Toy'

  • 2023 - Sweden - 'Tattoo'



After seven countries have voted the Top 5 as of 11 April 2024 are -


  1. Croatia - 64 points

  2. Belgium - 54 points

  3. Switzerland - 53 points

  4. Italy - 52 points

  5. Austria - 33 points
