Every year Eurovision is a jamboree of musical genres from pop to heavy metal (I mean – Lordi, right?) with this years Eurovision looking to be no different we’ve rounded up our the strongest contenders to win this years competition.
France’s entry to this years Eurovision is the epitome of French culture, the relaxing melody of a song about the refugee crisis and self-identity spoken entirely in French. France automatically qualify for the final of Eurovision but are still one to watch!
The 2009 Eurovision champion Alexander Rybak is back! Surprised? Not really. This Eurovision god won the heart of everyone back in 2009 and is back to do it again, admittedly this time around his song is not the fairytale we’d have hoped for but it’s very catchy!
Moldova’s entry to Eurovision is exactly what Eurovision is about! The campness of the music and the storyline behind the lyrics really sets it up to become a strong reminder of Eurovision 2018. We’ll be honest, it probably won’t win…but it could become the next Verka Seduchka.
This is our winner, hands down! In stark contrast to last years Eurovision winner, this entry is a looper-pop track influenced by the recent #MeToo movement – the lyrics “I’m not your toy” will surely live down in Eurovision history if this wins…and we really hope she does!
Typical Cyprus Euro-pop but we love it! A Greek singer representing Cyprus singing a song in English based on the Spanish word for fire’. We suspect this could become very popular in clubs…we can’t say anymore about it other than fuego!
This fierce LGBT icon is coming for Eurovision! You may recognise Saara Aalto from the X Factor UK in 2016 where she came in second place – this time she’s back for all of Europe with a pop anthem about overcoming fears. Not only is Saara and her teams music on point but so is their fashion, if she doesn’t win the competition she’ll certainly be the best dressed on the night.
This is one of this years most popular entries, whether it be because of the absurd lyrics about eating spaghetti, the fact that the singer (Mikolas Josef) is riding a camel in the music video or that the the singer himself looks like most gay guys dream. The song is ridiculous but thats what you come to expect at Eurovision and we think this will do extremely well!
