**This year again you can take it up against the team members of ESCDaily by predicting this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Join the fun and read all you need to do in this article!**

Here’s what you need to do: Post your Top-10 for semi final 1 of Eurovision 2023 in the comment section below! We will publish a separate article for each individual show; you can send us your Top-10 for each show in the comments section of that article.

#### How do we calculate the winner?

At the end of every show, we calculate who was closest to the final result. There is a point system that works like this: in the semi finals, the focus is on who qualifies. You get 5 points for each qualifier you predicted correctly. On top of that, you get 12 points if your number 1 makes it to the final, 10 points if your number 2 makes it to the final, and then 8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. That means you should put the countries on top that you are most certain will qualify. In the final, the point system is based on how close you are to the actual positions in the top 10.
