ZELJKO JOKSIMOVIC TOPFAVORITE TO WIN EURO FRIENDS FINAL 2012!



The search for the Best Eurovision Song Ever almost comes to an end. Tomorrow at 20:00 CET, the Grand Final Gala will start and everybody can follow it on www.euro-friends.com.

Over 100 people from 36 countries from all around the world cast their votes and a 50% juryvoting/50% televoting will decide the winner of the Euro Friends Song Contest 2012. In the past 72 hours, people could predict the winner and the results of the Prediction Poll are known now.

20% of the voters predict that Zeljko Joksimovic will bring victory for Serbia & Montenegro with his entry of 2004: 'Lane moje'. Also Anne-Marie David with 'Tu te reconnaîtras' and Marija Serifovic with 'Molitva' are given high chances to win.
