I'm surprised Satellite isn't more well regarded - it's an incredibly instant and catchy song! Top three are all 11/10 and my favourites of their year. Running Scared is the only won that shouldn't have won but a fairly good set of winners overall! Probably jury votes that help remove anything particularly bad.

RUNNERS UP

2016: 🇦🇺 "SOUND OF SILENCE" Dami Im
2015: 🇷🇺 "A MILLION VOICES" Polarina Gagarina
2018: 🇨🇾 "FUEGO" Eleni Foureira
2014: 🇳🇱 "CALM AFTER THE STORM" The Common Linnets
2010: 🇹🇷 "WE COULD BE THE SAME" maNga
2012: 🇷🇺 "PARTY FOR EVERYBODY" Buranovskiye Babushki
2013: 🇦🇿 "HOLD ME" Farid Mammadov
2019: 🇮🇹 "SOLDI" Mahmood
2017: 🇧🇬 "BEAUTIFUL MESS" Kristian Kostov
2011: 🇮🇹 "MADNESS OF LOVE" Raphael Gualazzi

Just as strong as the winners tbh. Same again with 2010 I think maNga should be better remembered as that was also a quality song and performance! Italy didn't deserve to be top 10 let alone 2nd place. Top 4 all would've been very strong winners! Bulgaria's beautiful mess is really overrated imo, it's just a very average forgetable pop song that was performed well on the night!

UK ENTRIES 🇬🇧
2011: "I CAN" Blue
2015: "STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU" Electro Velvet
2017: "NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU" Lucie Jones
2018: "STORM" SuRie
2014: "CHILDREN OF THE UNIVERSE" Molly Smitten-Downes
2019: "BIGGER THAN US" Michael Rice
2013: "BELIEVE IN ME" Bonnie Tyler

2010: "THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME" Josh Dubovie

I have a big soft spot for Electro Velvet tongue.gif Forgot about Josh Dubovie completely, that really was an awful song! Never would have thought SuRie would've been so high but she was memorable in her year and sold the hell out of her song so she deserves some credit for UK despite the result! We've had our moments of sending decent entries but none of our songs are even close to being original or being remembered in Eurovision history. sad.gif

Just saying my favourite 2010s winner are Satellite, Euphoria, Rise Like A Phoenix, and Arcade while for 2010s runner up are Party for Everybody, Calm After the Storm, Fuego, and Soldi. Thus unintentionlly showing 2012, 2014, and 2019 are my fave top 2 lmao.

Not gonna rank the UK entries tho.

I reckon this year's Eurovision off-season will be heavily focused on this end-of-the-decade aspect (to confirm with my mod team x) but yes, let me do a quick rundown.

WINNERS
2016: "1944" Jamala
2010: "SATELLITE" Lena
2012: "EUPHORIA" Loreen
2014: "RISE LIKE A PHOENIX" Conchita Wurst
2019: "ARCADE" Duncan Laurence
2013: "ONLY TEARDROPS" Emmelie de Forest
2018: "TOY" Netta
2011: "RUNNING SCARED" Ell & Nikki
2017: "AMAR PELOS DOIS" Salvador Sobral
2015: "HEROES" Måns Zelmerlöw

Aside from 1944, and Satellite and Euphoria on good days, I'm not 100% behind most of the winners but I think all of them aside from Heroes are at least listenable, even if Amar Pelos Dois is something I'd never put on, and half of the rest are good.

RUNNERS UP
2010: "WE COULD BE THE SAME" maNga
2014: "CALM AFTER THE STORM" The Common Linnets
2018: "FUEGO" Eleni Foureira
2015: "A MILLION VOICES" Polarina Gagarina
2019: "SOLDI" Mahmood
2016: "SOUND OF SILENCE" Dami Im
2011: "MADNESS OF LOVE" Raphael Gualazzi
2017: "BEAUTIFUL MESS" Kristian Kostov
2013: "HOLD ME" Farid Mammadov
2012: "PARTY FOR EVERYBODY" Buranovskiye Babushki

Much better overall actually. I dislike none of these, even the grannies are fun as a song. We Could Be The Same is easily a big epic, and Calm After The Storm is undeniable quality imo.

UK ENTRIES
2015: "STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU" Electro Velvet
2011: "I CAN" Blue
2018: "STORM" SuRie
2014: "CHILDREN OF THE UNIVERSE" Molly Smitten-Downes
2012: "LOVE WILL SET YOU FREE" Engelbert Humperdinck
2017: "NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU" Lucie Jones
2013: "BELIEVE IN ME" Bonnie Tyler
2016: "YOU'RE NOT ALONE" Joe & Jake
2010: "THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME" Josh Dubovie
2019: "BIGGER THAN US" Michael Rice

no irony, Electro Velvet is miles ahead, partially because it's the single only one of those that shows a leaning away from straight singer pop with uninteresting production, which I'm deathly bored of. Supporting the UK in 2015 was fun, something I cannot say for any other Eurovision this decade, where it was a chore for most of the rest, and something I outright refused to do for Bigger Than Us, You're Not Alone and That Sounds Good To Me. I Can was however the sort of song that the British in "normal mode" should be sending more often.

though I should add that Storm had probably the best STAGE performance of the ten, but I listen to most entries in studio form and Electro Velvet's intro gets me every time so that I rarely think about its... lower quality performance.

2017: 🇵🇹 "AMAR PELOS DOIS" Salvador Sobral

Love the top 8. Running Scared is ok. Salvador is the only one I really hate.

RUNNERS UP

2013: 🇦🇿 "HOLD ME" Farid Mammadov
2011: 🇮🇹 "MADNESS OF LOVE" Raphael Gualazzi

Same situation. Love the top 8. "Hold Me" is ok and "Madness of Love" is terrible.

UK ENTRIES 🇬🇧

Molly deserved so much more than she got in 2014. Lucie was amazing. 3-7 are all good. 2015 is bad. 2010 is bad. 2012 is exceptionally bad.

I will agree though that, whilst awful and embarassing, Electro Velvet really does stick out like a sore thumb as a time where we broke out of just doing the bare minimum.

From a very casual fan

WINNERS

2013: 🇩🇰 "ONLY TEARDROPS" Emmelie de Forest (BEST)
2016: 🇺🇦 "1944" Jamala
2012: 🇸🇪 "EUPHORIA" Loreen
2014: 🇦🇹 "RISE LIKE A PHOENIX" Conchita Wurst
2011: 🇦🇿 "RUNNING SCARED" Ell & Nikki
2010: 🇩🇪 "SATELLITE" Lena
2019: 🇳🇱 "ARCADE" Duncan Laurence
2015: 🇸🇪 "HEROES" Måns Zelmerlöw
2018: 🇮🇱 "TOY" Netta
2017: 🇵🇹 "AMAR PELOS DOIS" Salvador Sobral (WORST)

Generally a really good bunch of songs, Only Teardrops is the only one I love but I'd happily listen to 1944 down to Toy and Salvador I recall being quite nice, it just hasn't stuck with me as well.

RUNNERS UP

2012: 🇷🇺 "PARTY FOR EVERYBODY" Buranovskiye Babushki (BEST)
2018: 🇨🇾 "FUEGO" Eleni Foureira
2019: 🇮🇹 "SOLDI" Mahmood
2015: 🇷🇺 "A MILLION VOICES" Polarina Gagarina
2014: 🇳🇱 "CALM AFTER THE STORM" The Common Linnets
2016: 🇦🇺 "SOUND OF SILENCE" Dami Im (WORST)

Don't recall:

2010: 🇹🇷 "WE COULD BE THE SAME" maNga
2011: 🇮🇹 "MADNESS OF LOVE" Raphael Gualazzi
2013: 🇦🇿 "HOLD ME" Farid Mammadov
2017: 🇧🇬 "BEAUTIFUL MESS" Kristian Kostov

Well obvs the Russian Grannies slay cool.gif Generally we got the winners right, but all of these I recall being at least decent.

UK ENTRIES 🇬🇧

2011: "I CAN" Blue (BEST)
2017: "NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU" Lucie Jones
2015: "STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU" Electro Velvet
2018: "STORM" SuRie
2014: "CHILDREN OF THE UNIVERSE" Molly Smitten-Downes
2012: "LOVE WILL SET YOU FREE" Engelbert Humperdinck
2016: "YOU'RE NOT ALONE" Joe & Jake
2013: "BELIEVE IN ME" Bonnie Tyler
2019: "BIGGER THAN US" Michael Rice
2010: "THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME" Josh Dubovie (WORST)

I mean we've got two genuinely good songs/performances to be proud of, and as bizarre as Electro Velvet was, it was refreshing seeing them just throw something bizarre out there even if it didn't quite land. When over half of your entries are made up of has-beens with forgettable songs and randomers with forgettable songs, then it really isn't surprising looking at our record.

Winners:
1 1944
2 Rise Like A Phoenix
3 Amar Pelos Dois
4 Only Teardrops
5 Euphoria
6 Toy
7 Arcade
8 Satellite
9 Heroes
10 Running Scared

There's a HUGE gap between the top 3 and everything else there, the top 3 were the best or among the best songs of their years (I have never actually got around to hearing most of the 2017 songs as I missed that final shamefully but I find it hard to imagine there's much there that I'd like more than 'Amar Pelos Dois'), 4-6 were also in my top half or so, 'Arcade' is on its own in just being ok, and the last 3 were among my least favourite songs of their years ('Running Scared' is the most baffling winner to date, easily the worst song that year and doesn't sound remotely like a winner).

Runner-ups (only ranking the ones I actually remember, sorry maNga and Kristian):
1 Party For Everybody
2 Fuego
3 A Million Voices
4 Hold Me
5 Soldi
6 Sound Of Silence
7 Madness Of Love
8 Calm After The Storm

Yeah this isn't as good as the list of winners, 'Party For Everybody' is fantastic and a Eurovision classic for me but I only really care at all for the next 2 or 3.

UK entries:
1 Still In Love With You
2 I Can
3 You're Not Alone
4 Bigger Than Us
5 Never Give Up On You
6 Love Will Set You Free
7 Children Of The Universe
8 Storm
9 Believe In Me
10 That Sounds Good To Me

I make no apologies for being team Electro Velvet. Other than that... yeah it's pretty obvious why 'I Can' is our only entry that did particularly well.

I love them all down to Heroes, that was a bop but 2015 was SO strong that was like probably just outside my top 10 or just inside, RS is fine in studio but a really underwhelming winner and APD is obv abysmal.

The top 5 all slay, PFE is great in its own fun way and Beautiful Mess really grew on me post contest. I honestly can't remember how Hold Me even goes without reminding myself which is mental for a runner-up, but i don't like the other two.

God having this in a list format really makes it hit home how terrible this decade was for us laugh.gif NGUY is the only one I love, I Can and Children are great but i never really go back to them. BIM is fine, SILWY is so bad it's good and Storm-BTU are dull as. TSGTM is absolutely horrendous and potentially the worst Eurovision song I've ever heard.

Everything down to 'Soldi' is killer, but then it dives off a cliff as I don't care for 'Hold Me' in the slightest, it's just the lesser evil of the bottom 3.
