In a few days the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 will start and I am so excited! This year Eurovision will be held in Sweden, Stockholm. Their theme is: Come Together. Also Sweden made a change in the televote, I am not sure if I like that or not.
If you want to see my full top 42, I will add it into this blogpost to!
This year it would have been 43 countries that would sing in Sweden, but Romania got disqualified, because they still had to pay a lot of money. It is good they are disqualified, but it is so sad for their singer.
The Netherlands are back in the game again! When I first heard our song, I disliked it! But this song has grown so much on me and I really hope Douwe Bob will qualify, because a finale without your country isn’t fun.
Barei – Say Yay.
This song has come a long way, from a non favorite to a favorite. It has grown so much on me and this song is not a typical song that spain would send. I find it really catchy and it is so easy to remember. She is amazing live.
Spain will sing in the final!
Freddie – Pioneer.
I am so happy that Hungary chose him! I really love his voice. Eventhought I wished he had more of a rock song for his voice. I still love this song a lot and this is my favorite hungarian entry ever! I also love the message of this song.
Hungary will sing in the first semi-final.
Hovi Star – Made Of Stars.
Before Israel made this version of the song, I really didnt like the song at all. It was such an forgetable song, but then they released this version. I fell in love with this song and I am so happy they did a revamp. Hovi sings this song so beautiful and I enjoy every minute of this song!
Israel will sing in the second semi-final.
Nina Kraljic – Lighthouse.
Croatia is back and they are stronger than ever! I missed this country so much and they decided to take Eurovision serious. I really love this song and I love Nina’s voice. I was scared she wouldn’t be that good live, but she is really good!
Croatia will sing in the first semi-final.
Greta Salome – Hear Them Calling.
I liked this song before I went to Eurovision in Concert, but after the concert I knew this could be a possible dark horse. She is so good live and the song has a strong message. At the beginning I prefered the Icelandic version, but still this version is amazing! I just hope she won’t be underrated!
Iceland will sing in the first semi-final.
Sergey Lazarev – You’re the Only One.
Finally after screaming to Russia for 8 years that they had to send Sergey to Eurovision, they finally did it. Sergey is my favorite Russian singer and I knew he wouldn’t dissapoint me. I still can’t believe he is actually going. This song is amazing and Russia is in it to win it! His vocals live are amazing and all I can say is I love this song a lot! This will be atleast in the top 5
Russia will sing in the first semi-final.
Jüri Pootsmann – Play.
This guy has such an amazing voice! I really love his deep voice and that is the main reason I love this song so much! I find his voice very mysterious and Jüri’s facial expression are just gold!
Estonia will sing in the first semi-final.
Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime.
Best Bulgarian entry! When they announced that Poli would participate again for Bulgaria, I thought their song would be a rock song, but it wasn’t. I must say this song is so much better! Poli is amazing live and I want this to qualify, because Bulgaria deserves to be in the final.
Bulgaria will sing in the second semi-final.
Justs – Heartbeat.
I normally don’t like the style of these kind of songs, but I just love it a lot. Justs has an amazing voice and I love it when he sings higher and puts his power into it. I catch myself listening to this song all the time. Latvia did once again an amazing job.
Latvia will sing in the second semi-final.
Amir – J’ai Cherché
This song gives me so much feelings everytime I listen to it. It makes me fall in love with this song over and over again. I normally not a fan of French songs, but this is so amazing. I love the French and English parts, because it sounds amazing. Amir is such a charming singer. If anyone last year said to me that I actually would have France as my winner, I probably would have told them that they were crazy. I still can’t believe it how good this song.
France will sing in the final.
Please respect my opinion!
