Lithuania win collective OGAE Australia preview party vote



Tonight the OGAE Australia club counted down the 39 songs of Eurovision 2021 based on the votes received in all of last weekend's preview parties in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Canberra.


After all votes were tallied Lithuania took out the crown with 842 points with surprise packet Ukraine finishing runner-up with 771 points and Malta in 3rd with 655 points.


Despite winning only one city's vote (Melbourne) The Roop managed to win quite comfortably in the end, while Go_A jumped out of the pack for Australians, particularly in Sydney and Brisbane where they finished in 1st place.


Australia's entry 'Technicolour' finished in 10th place while some big favourites like France (14th) and Sweden (22nd) failed to win over Aussie audiences.
