It's Eurovision weekend - so we're celebrating with a £100 competion.

All you have to do to enter is reply to this thread with your answers to all of the 6 questions below and your tie-breaker.

The points value for each question is in brackets.

Please list your answers in number order (ie 1 to 6) - then give a number for the tie-breaker.

1 - Select any three nations (winner 10pts, runner-up 6pts, third 3pts)
2 - Where will United Kingdom finish? (2pts)
3 - Where will Ireland finish (2pts)
4 - How many 12s will United Kingdom be awarded? (2pts)
5 - How many 12s will the winning song be awarded? (2pts)
6 - Will any finalist end the night with 'nil points' (yes or no)? (1pt)

Tie-breaker: What will be the total points scored by United Kingdom?


NB - If there is a tie for second, both/all countries will score 6 points and there will be no points awarded for third. If there is a tie for third, both/all countries will score 3 points.

The winner will be the customer who scores the most points from the five questions. If there is a tie, the winner will be the person who is closest to the tie-breaker answer. If there is still a tie, the prize will be split.

Only one entry per person permitted - if you do submit multiple entries, only your first entry will be considered.

This thread will be locked at 8pm on Saturday May 26, so all entries have to be submitted before then.

The prize will be paid directly into the winner's Betfair account in week commencing May 28. Prizes cannot be collected or paid by any other method than a credit into the winner's account. Therefore you must have an active Betfair account to receive any prize.

An incredible percentage of entrants correctly picked the first 3 songs (Sweden, Russia, Serbia) and that left us with a large number of entries having all scored 22 points.

However, the prize money goes to J.O.TOBIN. whose tie-breaker prediction of 29 was closest to the woeful 12 points scored by the United Kingdom.

Thanks to all who took part!

Was going through things last night when I thought that I bet I nearly won that comp. Thought I will check back tommo, nearly didnt enter but then I thought why not especially having seen the guesses on UK points total. I mean come on so I thought just go lowest on the Hump and youve got a big chance tbh if someone had gone 20 I would have gone 19 under that I dont know.       I would just like to thank figgy an GB2 without their insistence that Sweden would win I would have put the Ukraine in instead glad I didnt now.

If I had been sneaky I should have waited till 7.59pm and then put one point below the lowest Hump score as by then we knew he was definitely shyte.

But good that a nice guy like JO won. I think I still owe you a virtual pint JO for tipping me off re arguing with BF for money back in the ohio caucus...that was you wasn't it?

Cheers for the thanks JOT. I was keen on Sweden's chances, especially when no strong challenger emerged from the usual suspects and it was a decent winner.
GB2 should take more of the credit tho. He was the biggest cheerleader for the Loreen and he's been in cracking form all year.
