Our #ESC250 2019 votes – Part 1: Tim, Costa & Julian

With the announcement of this year’s Eurovision Top 250 results shortly, we really want to tell you all who our all time Eurovision favourites are. In the few weeks, we’ll share our #ESC250 votes with you! In this first edition, we’ll have a look at the songs Tim, Costa & Julian love.  Make sure you click through all the pages and tell us what you think!

In the articles, our lovely editors will be looking closely at their Top 3 entries (the ones that got 8,10,12 Points) and will also provide their honourable mention (a song they really like, but did not make their ESC250 list).

Tim: A very modern take to the Eurovision Song Contest

I have to admit, I know that I did not enter the Eurovision Fandom until 2012, hence why my love for the contest mainly focuses on the 21st century, specifically the last decade. I mean, I am fond of entries which are considered as ‘classic’ but I based my votes on what I’d listen to now (so please don’t shoot me!).

Here are the first part of my votes:

  1. Sarah McTernan – 22 (Ireland 2019)
  2. Dami Im – Sound of Silence (Australia 2016)
  3. Saara Aalto – Monsters (Finland 2018)
  4. Aisel – X My Heart (Azerbijan 2018)
  5. KEiiNO – Spirit in the Sky (Norway 2019)
  6. Tamara Todevska – Proud (North Macedonia 2019)
  7. Eye Cue – Lost & Found (North Macedonia 2018)

8 Points – Eleni Foureira – Fuego (Cyprus 2018)

#YeahYeahFire even after a year, this is still a bop, and Eleni continues to provide us with those amazing bops. However, this will forever be definitive Eleni track for me and I will continue to say that Cyprus should’ve won the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.

10 Points – Duncan Laurence – Arcade (The Netherlands 2019)

Simplistic, Elegant and very emotional. That’s one of the ways I would describe Arcade. I must admit that I have slowly avoided listening to Arcade because of the fact I get so emotional every time I listened, and that it relates so much. It was a deserved winner overall and I cannot wait to see how Duncan’s career would unravel.

Honorable Mention – Lucie Jones – Never Give Up on You (United Kingdom 2017)

Before I reveal my winner, I just wanted to give my honorable mention. I picked Lucie as my honorable mention for this year. I picked this because, this was the only time this decade where I thought the UK had a great shot, but obviously the televote ruined that. Here’s to me hoping that the UK can do better in the future.

12 Points – Loreen – Euphoria (Sweden 2012)

Finally, the most cliche 12 Points ever (said most of the fandom on social media), will she make it another year and be on top at the end of the decade?. Euphoria will always have a special place in my heart. Loreen started it all for me. If it wasn’t for Euphoria, I would not be here right now, I would not be in the Eurovision fandom. However, I really hope that she returns with new music soon.

I started watching Eurovision ever since I moved to the UK in 2006, obsessed since 2012 and haven't looked back since.
