But what do you think?

Let us know on Twitter @escXtra or in the comments below! Which is your favourite? Who will you be voting for on Friday? Can the United Kingdom win again?

Technical Lead: I am a huge pop music fan and I love Rihanna, Years & Years, Sia, Zara Larsson and Sam Smith. However, more importantly, I love Eurovision. Melodifestivalen is my favourite National Final and if things look out of place on the website, it's most definitely my fault.
