2011 definitely is the rock bottom.

Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

Favorite winner: The Netherlands 2019.

Least favorite winner: Personally, Ukraine 2016. I'm not a big fan of Jamala as a person and I don't like what the song stands for. Objectively though, Azerbaijan 2011 is the worst winner of not only this decade, but perhaps one of the worst of all time. It's so underwhelming, dull and lifeless.

Favorite runner-up: Cyprus 2018. I will forever be sad that it didn't win, that was such an iconic Eurovision moment Honorable mention to Australia 2016.

Favorite 3rd place: I don't like any of the 3rd placed entries that much to be honest, but Russia 2016

Favorite year: Unpopular opinion, but 2019. This was the first year ever that I liked the majority of the songs. In addition to that, I LOVE both the top 2 finishes which is the first time something like this has happened I believe. Duncan and Mahmood were my top 2 before the show and I was so happy that they ended up winning the first two spots. Also, despite disliking the winner, 2016 was a very strong year in every way (strong top 3, great stage, show and hosts, great songs, etc.)

Worst year: 2011 There isn't a single song I enjoy from 2011 apart from Italy. Utter flop.

Kaman south half of the country

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I don't mean to hate Azerbaijan but of all entries they sent, the most basic one actually WON the contest and that made me mad.

Always in 2009, Truth in 2018, Hold me in 2013 are all much better than Running Scared
