Your wish is Wiwi’s command, so it’s time to choose Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model. Wiwi has once again consulted with Europe’s top modeling agencies and narrowed the field down to the following nine pieces of eye candy (in alphabetical order): Azerbaijan, Bosnia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Norway and Switzerland.

After three days and more than 3,500 votes, voters in Wiwi’s ongoing poll to determine who will be Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model have given Lithuania’s Sasha Son a commanding lead with 54% of the vote. Ladies (and gentlemen) have commented on Wiwi’s message board that they want Sasha, a world-renowned pianist, to tickle more than the ivories. (Some of you, perhaps hopeful, have speculated that Sasha is gay. Wiwi has not been able to confirm this.)

Greece’s Sakis Rouvas, who has proven that he can thrust like no other, placed second with 20% of the vote. Azerbaijan’s Arash, who set the stage on fire twice during rehearsals, came third with 13%. Norway’s Alexander Rybak, who turned 23 on Wednesday, was fourth with 4%. Finally, Wiwi’s readers are hungry for Hungary: Adok Zoli captured 4% of the vote to land in fifth position (Rybak received 2 more votes than Zoli to break the tie).

What do you think? Does Sasha Son deserve the prestigious title of Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model? Vote below to reveal the most up-to-date results! Or, if you’re tired of the men, click here to vote for Eurovision’s sexiest woman.

Eurovision contestants know how to sing (well, some of them anyway). But who has the charisma—and the beauty—to succeed as an international superstar? Wiwi has poured over hundreds of images and consulted with some of the top modeling agencies in Europe. Wiwi can now reveal the 12 finalists (in alphabetical order): Azerbaijan, Estonia, France, Iceland, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. Now it’s up to you to decide who deserves the prestigious title of Eurovision’s Next Top Model. Take a look at their pictures and then cast your vote! (You can vote for Eurovision’s sexiest man by clicking here.)

Thursday, May 14, midnight GMT

After four days and 7,000 votes, Wiwi’s readers have reaffirmed their belief that Romania’s Elena Gheorghe deserves to be named Eurovision’s Next Top Model. Her sultry performance of The Balkan Girls during the first semi-final on Tuesday helped her claim 44% of all votes (up from 30% on Sunday). Turkey’s Hadise earned 28% of the votes (up from 26%) to maintain second position, despite battling a mysterious skin infection that left her bed-ridden in Moscow for three days. (If Wiwi posted pictures of said skin condition, would Hadise still be in second place?). Spain, who still hasn’t performed, claimed third place with 8% of the vote, while Malta’s head-shaking, Beyonce-loving Chiara captured 7% and fourth place. Svetlana Loboda, the coffee-selling sex kitten from Ukraine, placed fifth with 4% of votes. She would have placed higher, but men are afraid of her “hell machines.” Vote below to reveal the most up-to-date results!

POLLS CLOSE FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT. VOTE NOW!

Monday, May 11

After counting a total of 5,300 votes, Wiwi Bloggs is rather sad to report that an overwhelming majority of voters (58%) want Greek heartthrob Sakis Rouvas to finish last. However, that figure has fallen nine percentage points since last Friday, in part because of an increasing distaste for Turkey’s Hadise (4%), Germany’s Oscar Loya (3%) and the United Kingdom’s Jade Ewen (3%). Other countries in the Top Ten (well, Bottom Ten in this case) were: Armenia, Spain, Norway, France and Finland (3%), and the Czech Republic (2%).

Wiwi has no doubt that Greece and Turkey remain strong contenders to win Eurovision this year. But their rivalry has prompted their fans to vote against the opposing pop star, totally skewing these results. Germany or the U.K. coming last? That’s more like it. . .

What do you think? Vote below and take a look at the most up-to-date results.

After counting an additional 3,000 votes over the past three days, Wiwi Bloggs can now reveal that his readers want Greece’s Sakis

Rouvas to finish last at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. On Monday the sexy Greek lothario claimed 32% of the vote. By Thursday evening that figure had swelled to 67%. Armenia’s sister act from Inga and Anush remains in second with 3% of the vote, while the Czech Republic’s Gipsy.cz has come from nowhere to occupy third position. Other countries with the dubious honor of making the Top 10 were: Norway, France, Finland, Spain, United Kingdom, Cyprus and perennial loser Germany.

Monday, May 4

After three days and nearly 1,000 votes, Wiwi Bloggs’ readers have decided that Greece’s Sakis Rouvas should finish last at the Eurovision Song Contest. Greece received a shocking 32% of all votes, placing him ahead of Armenia (9%), Turkey (4%), Moldova and Switzerland (3%), and Malta and France (2%). Germany, who both bookies and Wiwi Bloggs have predicted will finish last, received just 20 votes (2%). Denmark was the only nation that no one voted against.

These surprising results may reflect the ongoing rivalry between Turkish and Greek voters. Turks may have voted against Greece here because they see him as a threat: he is currently second in Wiwi’s poll to determine who will win Eurovision. At the same time, Greek voters, angry that Greece trails Turkey in that poll, may be taking their revenge with this poll. Wiwi seriously doubts that either of these nations will finish last. Hello: did anyone see the Czech Republic or Montenegro at rehearsals?

Germany: Better not smile yet

Germany: Better not smile yet

We’re all curious to know who will win Eurovision. But where there are winners there are also plenty of losers. Bookies seem certain that Germany will finish at the bottom of the heap, though they  think that France, Ireland, Russia, Croatia or—gasp—Malta could challenge for the bottom spot. Who do you think will be the biggest loser at Eurovison?

Turkey's Hadise

Wiwi’s Eurovision poll opened on May 1 and closed on May 15 at 11:59pm. During that time voters cast a total of 35,802 votes, making this one of the largest Eurovision polls in the world. The results are:

(1) Turkey: 22% (7,809)

(2) Greece: 22% (7,807)

(3) Romania: 16% (5,825)

(4) Albania: 14% (5,133)

(7) Azerbaijan: 2% (841)

(10) France: 1% (517)

Greece's Sakis Rouvas

Greece's Sakis Rouvas

Turkey’s Hadise edged out Greece’s Sakis Rouvas by just two votes, essentially placing the two in a deadlock. Romania fell to third following Greece’s showing in the second semi-final. Albania, who was a pleasant surprise on Thursday, overtook Malta’s Chiara for the first time. Lithuania and Azerbaijan held steady, while Armenia finally passed Norway, who may be suffering in the poll due to months of overexposure. France once again placed in the Top 10, suggested it may do the best of the Big 4 (despite oddsmakers backing Britain).

These predictions should be taken seriously. In addition to its size, Wiwi’s poll has proven incredibly accurate. On May 14, it predicted nine of the nine countries advancing from the second semi-final, matching its success during the first semi-final on May 12. (In both cases, the tenth country was selected by a jury of producers). Click here to review Wiwi’s live blog of the first Eurovision semi-final and click here to review the second semi-final.

Elena: Will Tuesday be her night?

On the eve of the first Eurovision Semi-Final, Romania’s Elena Gheorghe is surging in Wiwi’s ongoing Eurovision prediction poll. More than 11,000 votes have now been cast, and Elena has leapfrogged eight places to reach second position with 12% of all votes. She narrowly edged out Malta’s Chiara (11%) who staged her own dramatic comeback last week (see below). Their ongoing resurgence continues to reduce the lead of longtime front-runner Hadise, the Belgian-born beauty and occasional lip-syncher representing Turkey, who stands at 38%—her lowest portion of votes since this poll started two weeks ago. Other countries reaching the Top Ten were: Azerbaijan (6%), Greece (5%), Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom and Armenia (3%), and Lithuania (2%).

Chiara: On the moveSaturday, May 9, 2009

Eight-thousand votes have now been cast in Wiwi Bloggs’ Eurovision poll, and Turkey’s Hadise maintains a comfortable lead with 43% of all votes. However, for the first time in nine days,  Hadise has seen her lead shrink (down from Monday’s high of 49%). Meanwhile, Malta’s Chiara Siracusa is mounting a comeback. After shining during her two rehearsals this week, Chiara reclaimed voter support and jumped from eighth place five days ago to second place today, claiming 12% of the vote (up from 3% on Monday). Azerbaijan’s Aysel and Arush also had stellar performances and earned 9% of the vote, helping them push Greece’s Sakis Rouvas (6%) down to fourth place—his lowest placement thus far in Wiwi’s poll. Other countries in the Top 10 were: United Kingdom and Armenia (4%), Norway, Portugal and Sweden (3%) and Romania (2%).

Can anyone hold Hadise back?

Entering the second week of voting here on Wiwi Bloggs’ Eurovision Predictions, Turkey’s Hadise continues to dominate. Of the 4,500 votes cast so far, Turkey claimed an impressive 49%. Interestingly, the majority of Wiwi’s readers reside in Western Europe, suggesting that Hadise has continent-wide support in her bid to make voters hearts go m Tek Tek. And her momentum appears to be building: last week Hadise topped the charts in Belgium for the first time.

So it appears this has become a race for second place. Azerbaijan leapfrogged five places to share second position with Greece. Both claimed 6% of the vote. Other countries reaching the Top 10 were: United Kingdom, Sweden and Portugal (5%), Norway (4%), Malta and Estonia (3%), and Romania (2%). (Does everyone want to be Hadise?
