#7: Helena Paparizou – My Number One (Greece 2005)

Greece at their very best. Becoming an instant classic. I just love when Dance rhythm is played with folk instrumentation. The choreography and the costuming is off the charts too. Deserved winner after being robbed in 2001. I never get bored listening to this. The lyrics are bizarre, but I love it for it!

#6: Urban Symphony – Rändajad (Estonia 2009)

I adore moody cello led songs and this is what this is. Estonia have never ever bettered this. 2009 was a stacked year and in my opinion the best contest ever. Visually arresting staging adding to the ethereal nature of the song. The beat just tops off the masterpiece. The Estonian language is so beautiful when singing songs like this one.

#5: Eleni Foureira – Fuego (Cyprus 2018)

To me this is the song of 2018. Everybody doubted whether Eleni would pull this off. But I knew she would deliver, and boy did she deliver. To me she deserved the win, but she is one half of the best and most iconic Top-2s in history. Choreography, staging, costume 10s 10s 10s across the board. I can’t explain enough how much I love Eleni and her music.

#4: Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime (Bulgaria 2016)

Electro-Pop done at its best. Poli was the rightful winner in 2016, another stacked contest. I could listen to this all day, it just makes me happy. I will miss Bulgaria at Eurovision. The insane attention to detail and effort they put into their entries between 2016 and 2018 made me appreciate them being around, as I would love to see the BBC be the same. Poli’s outfit is bonkers, but it works! Love this!
