Online bookies are predicting that Iceland will come in 8th place at the Eurovision Song Contest Final on Saturday. Per the current odds on EurovisionWorld.com, The Netherlands are well-placed to triumph, with a 47% of winning tonight. Iceland, on the other hand, has a 4% chance of winning, odds it shares with Italy, Russia, and Azerbaijan.
Predictions have Australia coming in second place, although if the country wins (current odds, 12%), the competition would be hosted in an as yet to be determined European country. Switzerland is predicted to come in third place.
Iceland has earned second place twice in the competition: in 1999, for Selma‘s “All Out of Luck” and 2009, for Yohanna’s “Is It True?”. The country has never won Eurovision. By making it through the semi-final, however, Hatari has already exceeded Iceland’s showings in recent years; the country has not qualified for the final since 2014.
