With the announcement of this year’s Eurovision Top 250 results shortly, we really want to tell you all who our all time Eurovision favorites are.
In this series, our editors will be looking closely at their Top 3 entries (the ones that got 8, 10, and 12 Points) and will also provide their honorable mentions (a song they really like, but did not make their ESC250 list).
Today, it is Maria’s turn to let you know who they voted for in this year’s edition of #ESC250.
Maria: Hello, diversity or No country is doubled here
To be honest, I never submitted my Top 10 anywhere before this year. But 2020 seems a good moment to start, right? 😀 My taste is not so unique in general opinion but I’m totally fine with it. I love quite many Eurovision songs and it’s extremely hard for me to pick the best of the best and even to rate them. My list can be considered as a quite various one thanks to genres and countries represented. The most favourite year seems to be 2010 edition (3 songs), the runner-up is 2018 (2 songs).
Disclaimer: My Top 10 submitted for #ESC250 was a bit different. As I was preparing the article, I reconsidered something. The Top 3 is absolutely safe though, I am more certain for this part.
So here are my first votes! The points are assigned according to their position in the list (lower position means more points).
- Alyosha – Sweet People (Ukraine 2010)
- Cláudia Pascoal – O Jardim (Portugal 2018)
- Sergey Lazarev – You Are the Only One (Russia 2016)
- Eugent Bushpepa – Mall (Albania 2018)
- Mørland & Debrah Scarlett – A Monster Like Me (Norway 2015)
- Miki Núñez – La Venda (Spain 2019)
- Harel Skaat – Milim (Israel 2010)
8 Points: maNga – We Could Be The Same (Turkey 2010)
I miss Turkey at the Eurovision, not gonna lie. Especially watching such performances as maNga did. This song is so powerful and beautiful, I am always up to listen to it.
10 Points: Marija Serifovic – Molitva (Serbia 2007)
I haven’t been watching the 2007 edition which Marija won but the video I found many years after struck me a lot. No wonder for me this song had won. It brings a lot of different emotions and makes Serbian language even more attractive. Also the performance was really touching one.
P.S. My love to this song got a revival when I saw a new music video of 2020!! Attaching it below so you can enjoy once again as well.
Honorable Mention: Destiny – All Of My Love (Malta 2020)
As we’re coming to the top of this list, I’d like to mention one more great song, which got a little lower place here but I still love it dearly.
Destiny with her “All Of My Love” is my runner-up this year. I’d really root for her if the contest took place. Motivating and catchy song performed by Destiny? You got me here!
12 Points: Diodato – Fai Rumore (Italy 2020)
And finally 12 points gooo tooo… Italy! It’s Diodato with his marvelous song Fai Rumore! I love almost all the Italian recent entries but this one is my winner for sure. It leaves some bittersweet aftertaste for me, I need such songs quite often. Beautiful Italian language, Diodato’s voice and such emotional performance won my heart.
P.S. The wonderful Arena di Verona video is worth another honourable mention itself!
