The table as of the morning of January 27 looks like this:

1. Iceland - 11% to win

2. Ukraine - 9%.

3. Great Britain - 8%

4. Italy - 6%.

5. Sweden - 5% 5.

Until recently, Iceland was at the bottom of the rankings with a minimum 3% chance of winning, but after the announcement of a Palestinian participant in the national selection, the situation has changed.

The singer Bashar Murad, who lives in Jerusalem, will take part in the preliminary stage of the selection for the song contest. The local national selection - Söngvakeppnin - will take place in February-March.

If a performer of Palestinian descent wins, he or she will talk to the Icelandic broadcaster about whether they want to go on a show that features a representative from Israel. Earlier, Iceland said they demanded that the Israeli participant be ignored.

OBOZ.UA also wrote that Ukraine will choose its representative on February 3. All participants who will compete for this opportunity have been announced . The last, eleventh semi-finalist was chosen later. It was ANKA with the song "Palala".
