After Norway winning in 2009 the contest was held in Oslo. That year had a theme again: Share The Moment. In 2010 I started to watch some pre-selections one of them was the Norwegian pre-selection and the other one was the German one.
In 2010 Germany won the contest, which was a surprise for me. They won with Lena – Satelitte. Germany is in my top 10, that is why you will read more later on!
Sunstroke Project & Olia Tira – Run Away.
The vocals on this song aren’t really that good, but the epic sax guy just makes the song better. Oh and don’t forget the spinning guy with the violin at the beginning of this song! I prefer the studio version, but they still got the 10th place. I really love the style of this song. Back in 2010, most of the people knew this song, because of the epic sax guy.
Moldova reached the final and they got the 21st place with 27 points.
Milan Stankovic – Ovo Je Balkan.
This song is my Eurovision 2010 guilty pleasure! Everytime I listened to this song I got a smile on my face. Also this song is in Serbian, which means I like the more! I heard this song for the first time in the semi finals and it grew on me.
Serbia reached the final and they got 13th place with 72 points.
Eva Rivas – Apricot Stone
This song is a really good song, but I don’t love it as much as I used to. Armenia was much higher in my favourites back in 2010. I still like the song and her performance. Her vocals are fine, but the song lost it’s magic.
Armenia reached the final and they got the 7th place with 141 points.
Chanée & N’evergreen – In A Moment Like This.
Hello Denmark, welcome back again to my top 10. This song also lost a few places in my top 10. I really miss the time where I loved this song, but now I feel there is something missing and I think the spark between them is missing. Vocals are great and I like the performance.
Denmark reached the final and they got the 4th place with 149 points
Giorgos Alkaios & Friends – OPA.
When I heard this song for the first time, I was a fan. Greece made sure there was a bit of a party in Oslo! It is so catchy and it is so easy to remember this! Eventhought it is in Greek. If I listen to this song, I can’t help it but I will sing along. Everybody Say: OPA!
Greece reached the final and they got the 8th place with 140 points.
Lena – Satellite.
Germany was the winner of Eurovision 2010 and I didn’t expect it to happen at all. But Europe loved Lena and Germany won. In 2010 I didn’t like this song as much as I do now! Now I finally can see why Lena won. She just had a different look, performance and song. Back then it was between Germany and Turkey and I really wanted Turkey to win.
Germany is a part of the Big 5 which means they were already in the Grand Final. Germany won the contest with 246 points.
MaNga – We Could Be The Same.
Yes, they only got my 4th place, because I just like my top 3 a little bit more! I wanted them to win this so bad. Sadly they got second, but they did very well. I knew them before Eurovision, because the won a MTV EMA award. I want more of these song in Eurovision, beause these songs are so rare! Someone please send a rock song!
Turkey reached the final and they got 2nd with 170 points.
Tom Dice – Me And My Guitar.
2010 was the year Belgium managed to reach the final with the most simple song. Belgium showed Europe that you don’t need a big show to do good in Eurovision. I love this song so much, because it is just simple. Vocals are really good. I enjoy this song a lot and I am so glad that this song did well. Tom Dice is very charming!
Belgium reached the final and they got the 6th place with 143 points.
Paula Seling & Ovi – Playing With Fire.
This song is such a catchy song and I love the vibes between Paula & Ovi. I loved their performance especially with the piano. I don’t know how it looked in the arena, because they were looking at each other, most of the time. Paula Seling has a good voice! When I heard this song live for the first time, they became also one of my favourites that could win that year. I still had a clear winner, but I never expect my winner to actually win Eurovision!
Romania reached the final and they got the 3th place with 162 points.
Harel Skaat – Milim.
This song I still my favourite and I still can’t believe it that I didn’t reach the top 10. For me this was my winner. This song is in Hebrew and it is so beautiful. From the first time I heard it, I was in love with song. Harel got the flue around Eurovision, that is why he couldn’t sing at his best. He also missed one note, which killed the whole song. After 6 years I still can’t get over the fact that this song is so beautiful!
Israel reached the final and they got the 14th place with 71 points.
