Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

My main hope is that German officials finally understand, that authentic singers win this contest. Singers, who are doing THEIR music and not a 5th placed from "Voice of Germany" and certainly not 2 singers, where everybody sees, they would be the Top2 bitches in a club on a Friday night, thinking they are so superior to everybody else and acting this way and then singing a song, which was rejected by Switzerland of all countries. That would a a great progress for starters, never mind the finishing place.

We saw this last year, we saw this in Lena and we saw it in everybody, Stefan Raab backed (Guildo Horn 7th, himself 5th, Lena 1st, Max Mutzke 8th, Roman Lob 8th).

No, it's not that everybody hates us. It is, what you serve the ppl of EBU for dinner. They realize that it's fake.

Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

Favourite winner: eh, Sweden '12 :shrug:

I can't do the rest because there were only 3 songs I actually liked enough to remember: Norway '13 and '19 and Bulgaria '16 and none of them were in the top 3, so...
Although I did like Russia '15, but that's mainly because I love Polina and not that the song itself was anything special (in fact, I actually don't remember it), but let's say it was my fave runner-up.

Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

My favourite winner was definitely Euphoria.

The worst winners were 2011, 2016-2018 for me.

Loved 2011 ESC just because it was so nice to have it in Germany and it was a great show but the music that year was indeed really bad. Most of the other years I enjoyed though, maybe 2017 not that much.

Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

I'm looking back to the scoreboards of previous years and Serbia actually finished in the top 10 in 2015? That result was seen as such an absolute debacle here and it destroyed all the Eurovision hype probably for ever that I was sure she placed outside the top 20. :lol:

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 :sobbing: 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 :eek:h:

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

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
