Poll Results: “Same Heart” is the Eurovision 2014 song you are still listening to

One month ago we asked all y’all to check your iPods, walkmans and other mp3 devices and to tell us which Eurovision 2014 songs you’re still listening to. After counting 13,560 votes, we can now reveal that Mei Finegold’s “Same Heart” is the song looping most frequently on your music player!

The Israeli, who told us all about going into labour after warming up a crowd of 15,000, captured 1,174 votes—nearly 9% of all those cast. It just goes to show: you don’t have to make the Eurovision final for your song to become a Eurovision classic.

Ukraine’s Mariya Yaremchuk, who our readers recently named Best Dressed at ESC 2014, finished in a close second with 1,086 votes—or 8% of all those cast. Romania’s Paula Seling & Ovi, who brought a hologram to the Eurovision stage for the first time ever, finished third with 975 votes, or around 7%.

You’ll notice that Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita Wurst only finished eighth in our poll. Is it possible that the song isn’t as strong without the striking visuals Conchita brought to Copenhagen? Sweden’s Sanna Nielsen, who came third at Eurovision, finished fourth in this poll. And Holland’s Common Linnets, who finished second at ESC, came seventh here.

Besides Mei Finegold, a few other non-qualifiers did better in our poll than they did at Eurovision, suggesting that they had strong songs but let themselves down at Eurovision because of poor staging. Ireland’s Can-linn featuring Kasey Smith featured fifth here. Portugal’s Suzy Guerra came 18th.

Belgium’s Axel Hirsoux, the winner of our annual Cruise Ship Award, finished last with just 38 votes. If you didn’t like “Mother”, perhaps you’ll like his new song “Bellissimo”?

Based on our poll, the Big 5 + Denmark deserved their automatic qualification to the grand final. The UK’s Molly Smitten Downes came sixth, lending credence to her wiwibloggs award for Biggest Disappointment at Eurovision. Spain’s Ruth Lorenzo came tenth, Italy’s Emma Marrone came 14th, France’s Twin Twin came 15th, Germany’s Elaiza came 19th and Denmark’s Basim came 26th.

You can see the complete results below. Did Mei deserve to win? Did Axel deserve to come last? Which songs have you DELETED from your music player? Let us know in the comments box below.
