Bing, The Crystal Ball

Microsoft's Bing "prediction engine" continues to accumulate a pretty impressive resume of successful "educated guesses", on results of things like NFL and soccer games and most recently, the Eurovision Song Contest. Having been born and raised in Europe, I was a little startled to realize that the Eurovision Song Contest was still a thing. Regardless, Bing has developed a solid reputation for data analysis.
According to Cortana/Bing, and as shown by Microsoft, Sweden (perennial winners of the camp song-fest) have the strongest shot of winning Eurovision 2015, with an estimated 17.1% chance of bring home the trophy.

Sweden did win the 2015 contest, thanks to Måns Zelmerlöw and his song "Heroes".
