ESC 2017 KYIV - DAY 13: IS THIS THE EUROVISION 2017 WINNER TRIO?

These three gentlemen have taken and kept their lead ahead of another man, Sweden's Robin Bengtson and Belgian girl Blanche. It could be that for the first time ever Eurovision song contest has a male trio hosting it but also for the first time ever an all male Top-3 solo artists: Francesco gabbani,  Salvador Sobral and Kristian Kostov. 
If this happens one several records are also broken; both Portugal and Bulgaria would get their best result ever, and Italy confirms itself as a power nation in the Eurovision; five Top-10s in 7 years after their return. If Sweden lands outside Top-5 (unlikely) Italy equals both Sweden and Russia in Top-10 finishes since 2011.
Closest we get to a full male podium is 1978 when Izhar Cohen from Israel with his backing group Alpha Beta won, followed by Belgian Jean Vallée and French Joël Prévost. History in the making......

Oh, and can we talk about the languages? Both Italy and Portugal are non-English songs and the other two, Belarus and Hungary also made the final. Broadcasters, wake up. people of Europe want variety and languages!
