Eurovision: My winners and losers

Did you guys watch the Eurovision show last Saturday? Jonas and I watched the second semi-final, and when Denmark qualified for the final, we couldn’t not tune in to the final. Throughout the show we each kept track of our personal rating, and let’s just say that none of us agreed with the final score. In this blog post, I will give you a run-down of my winners and losers plus an honorable mention.

Winners

1 Belarus

Up-beat, catchy, feel-good and one awesome hairstyle that I wish I could rock as well as she can.

2 Romania

This one was really different, and again, catchy. I admire the fact that she can bounce around and look so effortless while yodeling. I can almost live with the stupid rap-response and the fact that her normal-singing voice isn’t the best.

3 Belgium

While this was my original 3rd place, here a few days after, this is my 1st place. This has been more or less on repeat since the show. I love it!

 
4 Germany

How is it possible that this got almost no points?! Alright, it has a Titanium-vibe to it, but also a Eurovision feel-good vibe, and it deserved WAY more points than it got (and some more hairspray in her hair if she is going to bounce her head around so much).

5 UK

This was one of Jonas’ favorites. She has a great voice, the song has a Eurovision-vibe, and with Danish contributions to the writing, we couldn’t not like it.

6 Hungary

This was Jonas’ winner, and I admit that I may have liked it better because he did than I would normally have. He went around and sung his version of it (with random words) all the time from Thursday to Saturday, so it must be catchy. What I like about this is the folk-music vibe and that it is in the country’s native language – I quite liked the time when all nations sang in their native language. It gave a unique feeling to each song. The only downside to this song is the rapping part – what is up with that?

Losers

20 Portugal

Apparantly the rest of the world didn’t agree with me on this one.. I’ll keep it short (although I could say many things about sympathy voting….): okay song, but not Eurovision-winner material.

21 Israel

I predicted this to do well because he’s a charmer, but his voice didn’t quite carry it, and the whole falsetto part… Ugh…

22 Poland

I couldn’t keep my concentration on this song. I quickly grabbed my phone because it wasn’t captivating enough.

23 Spain

Do it for your lover x 27…… Literally 27 times…

24 France

This has a very French vibe, and that just doesn’t suit my taste…

25 Armenia

I can’t really name why I didn’t like this, it just didn’t do anything special for me.. It was linear, and I kept waiting for a climax in the song that never came.

26 Croatia

What was up with this wannabe-musical schizofrenic duet with only one man? There was too much going on in the course of 3 minutes, and I did not like his constant change in tone/voice.

Honorable mention

Estonia

This right here is my ultimate winner. Unfortunately, it didn’t make it to the final, but this was my favorite of all 46 songs. Very catchy, very Eurovision. Way to go Estonia!

 

What did you think of the final score?

    Jeg synes det er så vildt, hvor forskellige vores meninger altid er for Eurovision 😮 vi var da også rygende uenige sidste år 😂

        Jeg var faktisk glad for Portugals sang, men ellers ville jeg gerne have haft Moldova, Holland eller Hviderusland til at vinde 🙂

        Jeg har som sådan heller ikke noget imod Portugals sang, jeg synes bare ikke den var winner-material… Hollands var lidt for girl-power agtig til mig.. Men Hviderusland kan vi da blive enige om 😀
