I don't think it's as exciting this year as it was in 2007 with the daily eliminations in "New Sounds of Europe".
The top 5 in the voting at the moment are:
Leona Lewis (UK & Ireland)
Shiri Maimon (Israel)
Emre Aydin (Turkey)
Something of interest for ESC fans is that Dima Bilan and Laka are also in the running, although I still can't understand the MTV awards' fascination with Neverstore. Nothing against them personally, but last year I was more than a bit annoyed about it....check out my posts from September & October 2007 if you don't believe me :)
