#2 – 🇷🇴 Paula Seling & Ovi – Playing With Fire (Romania 2010)
2010 was the first year I actually followed the contest more closely and that is why it’s so important for me. I must have watched the contest over 100 times on the DVD and I have strong connection with many songs. “Playing With Fire” is a perfect package of memorable performance and terrific song. I also appreciate Paula, and especially Ovi as a singer and a songwriter. “She’s After My Piano” is just amazing.
#1 – 🇸🇪 Eric Saade – Popular (Sweden 2011)
“Popular” is not the best song on this list, I have to admit that. But it has had so big impact on my life that I just have to put it on top of my list. Eric Saade has been my favourite artist since I first saw him in Melodifestivalen 2011. I think he is an amazing performer and his catalogue is full of amazing pop songs. “Popular” has an amazing intro, a catchy chorus and a stunning performance. I still am a bit sad this didn’t win, but I also understand why the juries didn’t like it as much as I do.
