A slight new format for this year! I feel like a 2016 vs. 2017 will be a landslide for the former, so this time I want us to compare the last THREE years. Simply award 3 points to your favourite entry from that country, 2 points to your second favourite and 1 point to your least favourite. Then add up the points at the end to find out which year ranks where! See my example in a post below if you are confused.

Albania // 2015: Elhaida Dani [?] ~ 2016: Eneda Tarifa [?] ~ 2017: Lindita [?]

Final Totals

2015: 67
2016: 82
2017: 79


(They should add up to 228 by the way happy.gif)

Well! I'll hand it to 2016 because of the strength of the 2016 entries in the incomplete sets but 2017 is so much closer than I expected. The fact that everything is at a solid standard while little being exceptional obviously benefits 2017 when it comes to rarely being last in any of the battles.

Oh god, I'll attempt this later but can I just give 3 / 3 / 3 to Belgium. Maybe swap their 1 with someone like Poland or the Czech Republic who don't really need a higher score. I can already tell they're going to have the highest quality 'worst' entry, I think "City Lights" is my least favourite and that's saying a lot when it's in my top 5 of this year!

Not sure how it ended up as close as that! laugh.gif I think 2016 suffers drastically from not having the powerhouses of Jamala and Poli Genova to bump up its number, as it's by FAR the most superior year of the 3.

Don't assume anything with 2016 vs 2017.

Albania // 2015: Elhaida Dani [2] ~ 2016: Eneda Tarifa [1] ~ 2017: Lindita [3]
Armenia // 2015: Genealogy [2] ~ 2016: Iveta Mukuchyan [3] ~ 2017: Artsvik [1]
Australia // 2015: Guy Sebastian [3] ~ 2016: Dami Im [2] ~ 2017: Isaiah [1] - yes I'm one of THOSE people.
Austria // 2015: The Makemakes [2] ~ 2016: ZOË [3] ~ 2017: Nathan Trent [1]
Azerbaijan // 2015: Elnur Huseynov [3] ~ 2016: Samra [1] ~ 2017: Dihaj [2]
Belarus // 2015: Uzari & Maimuna [1] ~ 2016: IVAN [2] ~ 2017: Naviband [3] - surprisingly strong three years for them.
Belgium // 2015: Loďc Nottet [1] ~ 2016: Laura Tesoro [2] ~ 2017: Blanche [3] - and FINALLY they send a decent entry xxx
Cyprus // 2015: John Karayiannis [1] ~ 2016: Minus One [3] ~ 2017: Hovig [2] - from one of the WORST of 2015 to two highlights in the last two years.
Czech Republic // 2015: Marta Jandová & Václav Noid Bárta [3] ~ 2016: Gabriela Gunčíková [2] ~ 2017: Martina Bárta [1] - don't keep sending ballads, you're better than this
Denmark // 2015 Anti Social Media [2] ~ 2016: Lighthouse X [1] ~ 2017: Anja [3]

Estonia // 2015: Elina Born & Stig Rästa [3] ~ 2016: Jüri Pootsmann [1] ~ 2017: Koit Toome and Laura [2] - god they're so bipolar, Play was one of the worst of last year but the other two are BEAUTIFUL. Duets rule.
Finland // 2015: Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät [3] ~ 2016: Sandhja [2] ~ 2017: Norma John [1] - like with Czechs, I'm not liking what the Finns have become lately. Yes I'm one of THOSE people [2]
France // 2015: Lisa Angell [2] ~ 2016: Amir [1] ~ 2017: Alma [3]
F.Y.R. Macedonia // 2015: Daniel Kajmakoski [1] ~ 2016: Kaliopi [2] ~ 2017: Jana Burčeska [3]
Georgia // 2015: Nina Sublatti [3] ~ 2016: Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz [2] ~ 2017: Tamara Gachechiladze [1] - awesome three years from Georgia though, I think I'd count them as the strongest country overall.
Germany // 2015: Ann Sophie [3] ~ 2016: Jamie-Lee [2] ~ 2017: Levina [1]
Greece // 2015: Maria Elena Kyriakou [2] ~ 2016: Argo [3] ~ 2017: Demy [1] - #downwithballads
Hungary // 2015: Boggie [1] ~ 2016: Freddie [3] ~ 2017: Joci Pápai [2]
Iceland // 2015: Maria Olafs [1] ~ 2016: Greta Salóme [3] ~ 2017: Svala [2]
Ireland // 2015: Molly Sterling [3] ~ 2016: Nicky Byrne [2] ~ 2017: Brendan Murray [1] - I really can't choose which one of Sunlight or Dying To Try is worse but I'll have a go.

United Kingdom // 2015: Electro Velvet [3] ~ 2016: Joe and Jake [1] ~ 2017: Lucie Jones [2] - difficult but I'm gonna rank Lucie ahead of Joe & Jake because the basicness of the latter just really annoys me now, and Lucie has yet to disappoint me, even though she has a bad song too.

OTHER COUNTRIES, I don't want to leave them out, so I'll just bold my faves:

Bosnia & Herzegovina // 2016: Dalal & Deen ft. Ana Rucner & Jala
Bulgaria // 2016: Poli Genova ~ 2017: Kristian Kostov

Ukraine // 2016: Jamala ~ 2017: O.Torvald (They have been flawless since their return, I look forward to this continuing)

Final Totals

2015: 83
2016: 73
2017: 72

Conclusion, 2015 was the best, other two about even with 2016 edging it because of the other entries.

Compared to how I feel at the moment it looks about right! 2017 JUST edges it for the top with overall quality being a central theme this year. 2015 is worse than the other two but some KILLER songs (Belgium, Latvia to name the two of them) are making the contest worth my time <3

LOL the amount of 2s that 2016 got.

This is my breakdown for how I rank things – please note that there are some cases when I really can’t pick or because we haven’t seen this year’s completed, staged entries but I like the song so I have allowed for a Tie-break, as a result this inflates the points a bit here and there. Ask me again in June –

Albania // 2015: Elhaida Dani [3] ~ 2016: Eneda Tarifa [1]2017: Lindita [2]
Armenia // 2015: Genealogy [1] ~ 2016: Iveta Mukuchyan [3] ~ 2017: Artsvik [2]
Australia // 2015: Guy Sebastian [2] ~ 2016: Dami Im [3] ~ 2017: Isaiah [1]
Austria // 2015: The Makemakes [1] ~ 2016: ZOË [2] ~ 2017: Nathan Trent [3]
Azerbaijan // 2015: Elnur Huseynov [2] ~ 2016: Samra [1] ~ 2017: Dihaj [3]
Belarus // 2015: Uzari & Maimuna [2] ~ 2016: IVAN [1] ~ 2017: Naviband [3]
Belgium // 2015: Loďc Nottet [3] ~ 2016: Laura Tesoro [2] ~ 2017: Blanche [2] NB – basically a tie-break based on staging and Laura’s performance – we shall know more when Blanche performs but I like the song quite a bit
Cyprus // 2015: John Karayiannis [1] ~ 2016: Minus One [3] ~ 2017: Hovig [2]
Czech Republic // 2015: Marta Jandová & Václav Noid Bárta [3] ~ 2016: Gabriela Gunčíková [3] ~ 2017: Martina Bárta [2] NB – I know it’s a cheat, but I really do like both 2015 and 2016 about the same, for totally different reasons
Denmark // 2015 Anti Social Media [2] ~ 2016: Lighthouse X [1] ~ 2017: Anja [3]
Estonia // 2015: Elina Born & Stig Rästa [3] ~ 2016: Jüri Pootsmann [1] ~ 2017: Koit Toome and Laura [2]
Finland // 2015: Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät [1] ~ 2016: Sandhja [2] ~ 2017: Norma John [3]
France // 2015: Lisa Angell [2] ~ 2016: Amir [3] ~ 2017: Alma [2] NB – tie-break here for me, I thought Lisa Angel’s song quite meaningful, well staged and unlucky in its slot in the running-order
F.Y.R. Macedonia // 2015: Daniel Kajmakoski [2] ~ 2016: Kaliopi [1] ~ 2017: Jana Burčeska [3]
Georgia // 2015: Nina Sublatti [3] ~ 2016: Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz [2] ~ 2017: Tamara Gachechiladze [2] NB – tie-break, I find it impossible to compared YGL and much else and they are all such completely different songs
Germany // 2015: Ann Sophie [3] ~ 2016: Jamie-Lee [2] ~ 2017: Levina [2] NB – ask me again at the end of May which of the two 2016 and 2017 I prefer, right now I can’t choose
Greece // 2015: Maria Elena Kyriakou [2] ~ 2016: Argo [1] ~ 2017: Demy [3]
Hungary // 2015: Boggie [2] ~ 2016: Freddie [3] ~ 2017: Joci Pápai [1] HB – I’m part Hungarian, it pains me not to really connect with a song in Magyar, but I’m not sure what it is about this one
Iceland // 2015: Maria Olafs [1] ~ 2016: Greta Salóme [3] ~ 2017: Svala [2]
Ireland // 2015: Molly Sterling [3] ~ 2016: Nicky Byrne [1] ~ 2017: Brendan Murray [2]
Israel // 2015: Nadav Guedj [1] ~ 2016: Hovi Star [3] ~ 2017: IMRI [3] NB – tie-break, Hovi brought a lot to his song and sorry guys, but ‘Golden Boy’ just isn’t my bag
Italy // 2015: Il Volo [3] ~ 2016: Francesca Michielin [2] ~ 2017: Francesco Gabbani [1] NB – I know, I just don’t enjoy this year’s song as much as I did the other two and I wanted Il Volo to win in 2015. Maybe I will with time.
Latvia // 2015: Aminata [2] ~ 2016: Justs [3] ~ 2017: Triana Park [2] NB – I admire Aminata greatly as a songwriter, I just don’t like her voice as much – Justs was great, wasn’t he? You can dance to Line – bound to do well in Euroclub, not my favourite in selection, but there you go
Lithuania // 2015: Monika Linkytė & Vaidas Baumila [3] ~ 2016: Donny Montell [2] ~ 2017: Fusedmarc [1]
Malta // 2015: Amber [2] ~ 2016: Ira Losco [3] ~ 2017: Claudia Faniello [2] NB – almost nothing in this for me, basically a dead tie-break
Moldova // 2015: Eduard Romanyuta [1] ~ 2016: Lidia Isac [2] ~ 2017: Sunstroke Project [3]
Montenegro // 2015: Knez [3] ~ 2016: Highway [1] ~ 2017: Slavko Kalezić [2] NB – Knez might be a tamer song but its more authentic and sung in their own language which is so rare
Norway // 2015: Mřrland & Debrah Scarlett [3] ~ 2016: Agnete [1] ~ 2017: JOWST [2]
Poland // 2015: Monika Kuszyńska [1] ~ 2016: Michał Szpak [2] ~ 2017: Kasia Moś [3]
Russia // 2015: Polina Gagarina [3] ~ 2016: Sergey Lazarev [2] ~ 2017: Julia Samoylova [1]
San Marino // 2015: Michele Perniola & Anita Simoncini [2] ~ 2016: Serhat [1] ~ 2017: Valentina Monetta & Jimmie Wilson [3] NB – where do you even start? Points for Valentina alone. I will say that last year’s staging saved them which is why I scored it that way
Serbia // 2015: Bojana Stamenov [2] ~ 2016: Sanja Vučić ZAA [3] ~ 2017: Tijana Bogićević [2] NB – tie-break, love Bojana’s message and her general fab-ness
Slovenia // 2015: Maraaya [3] ~ 2016: ManuElla [2] ~ 2017: Omar Naber [1]
Spain // 2015: Edurne [2] ~ 2016: Barei [3] ~ 2017: Manel Navarro [1] NB – like Manel’s song as a song, even if it is a little repetitive. I just don’t think its ESC and not sure what the hell they’ll do on the stage
Sweden // 2015: Mĺns Zelmerlöw [3] ~ 2016: Frans [1] ~ 2017: Robin Bengtsson [2] NB – liked Frans more on the night than I ever did other-wise, still not a huge fan of the song, saying that, I have doubts about Robin’s song as well, the use of the word “frickin’” annoys me and I’m not sure about the attitude behind the song. I know this is sacrilege, but I rather wish Italy, Belgium or even Russia had won 2015, as strong an entry as ‘Heroes’ is and as fab as Mĺns in Stockholm, he was in my Top 4, but apart from staging, he wasn’t my winner – his song wasn’t the best song and this is still supposed to be a Song Contest
Switzerland // 2015: Mélanie René [1] ~ 2016: Rykka [2] ~ 2017: Timebelle [3]
The Netherlands // 2015: Trijntje Oosterhuis [2] ~ 2016: Douwe Bob [2] ~ 2017: OG3NE [3] NB – tie-break, ‘Walk Along’ as a song I like, what they did on the stage was dire
United Kingdom // 2015: Electro Velvet [1] ~ 2016: Joe and Jake [2] ~ 2017: Lucie Jones [3] NB – I like the concept of trying a jazz song in at ESC, Italy came second in 2011 with a light-jazz song. If the BBC had hired people who know about jazz or swing we could have put together something which was musically solid as well as potentially quite entertaining and memorable given that this a genre not often seen at ESC. We have a thriving jazz scene in this country, there are a lot of acts in Edinburgh and Manchester as well as London and other scenes all over the country. If the BBC had got a good singer and say Hidden Orchestra, Polar Bear or somebody who actually knows what they were doing, pairing perhaps a traditional vocal with a really interesting backing track, the concept would have worked well. Instead they cheated and got inexperienced and inadequate people to do the job paired with weak lyrics and questionable staging – that’s why it didn’t work. Not the concept, the execution.

2015: 80 Points
2016: 76 Points
2017: 83 Points

Countries with two or less years of entries –

Bosnia & Herzegovina // 2016: Dalal & Deen ft. Ana Rucner & Jala [2] NB – technically this is cheating, I rated it a two because I liked a lot of it but I thought the rap unnecessary
Bulgaria // 2016: Poli Genova [3] ~ 2017: Kristian Kostov [2]
Croatia // 2016: Nina Kraljić [3] ~ 2017: Jacques Houdek [2]
Portugal // 2015: Leonor Andrade [2] ~ 2017: Salvador Sobral [2] NB – there’s a lot less in this than you might think. 2015 was quite weak – I think most of their efforts a bit naff, saying that, I actually like the throw-back qualities of this year’s effort rather than trying to do something that doesn’t quite work just because it fits the formula. I also like the fact that this year they are not afraid to send something that sounds vintage so I'm treating this as a functional tie-break.
Romania // 2015: Voltaj [3] ~ 2017: Ilinca ft. Alex Florea [1] NB – not really a fair fight between an overtly silly song and one with a lot of meaning. Also, I prefer ‘Moment of Silence’ if I’m honest.
Ukraine // 2016: Jamala [3] ~ 2017: O.Torvald [2] NB – another one where the songs are so different that its almost impossible to compare the two but then I suspected Jamala would win last year from selection and I appreciate what she did and there’s no way they will this year, so that’s how I’m voting here

2015: 5 Points
2016: 11 Points
2017: 7 Points

United Kingdom // 2015: Electro Velvet [1] ~ 2016: Joe and Jake [3] ~ 2017: Lucie Jones [2]

Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland have pretty default 3's because none of them have sent anything I really care for during these three years.

2015: 74
2016: 78
2017: 76

Hardly anything in it, but I do think it's right for 2016 to win out as I consider it the best contest since 2009
