Marco Mengoni will come in second at Eurovision Song Contest... according to Spotify

Published on Wed 10.05.2023

Sweden is going to win this year's Eurovision Song Contest, at least according to Spotify. The streaming service makes a guess about the winner every year, based on the number of streams on their platform.

Marco Mengoni, who represents Italy with "Due Vite," will come in second and "Queen of Kings" by Norway's Alessandra will be third, according to Spotify.

But algorithms aren't perfect, of course. In fact, Spotify has been quite wrong a few times. Last year it declared Italy the winner instead of Ukraine. And this year it predicted that the Netherlands would finish fifth with "Burning Daylight," while Mia Nicolai and Dion Cooper didn't even make it to the finals.

Two years ago, Spotify did get it right, declaring Måneskin as the winner. With Marco Mengoni, will Italy hit the jackpot again this year? We will find out on Saturday.

Whatever the outcome: on October 21, you can see Marco Mengoni live in Belgium, because the Italian star is coming to Forest National.
