At Eurovision 2013, Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest lived up to all the pre-contest hype and cruised to victory — sans shoes. Serving Mother Earth realness, she made “Only Teardrops” a memorable winner, and subsequently performed at the Eurovision Song Contest Greatest Hits show in London. Of course, plenty of other acts left an impression too with some killer choruses and memorable staging. From Farid Mammadov‘s man-in-a-box to Valentina Monetta‘s IKEA lamp to Zlata Ognevich‘s giant, a lot of these acts are lodged in our memory…for better or for worse.

And then there are the others. As we scroll through the list of Eurovision 2013 songs, some are a bit harder to conjure up.  Armenia’s Dorians (“Lonely Planet”), Spain’s El Sueño de Morfeo (“Contigo hasta final”), Croatia’s Klapa s Mora (“Mizerja”) — try recalling all of their lyrics verbatim right now. Told you so.

wiwibloggers William and Deban wanted to test how many of the lyrics and melodies they could remember while standing in front of a camera, and you can see the results below. It ain’t always pretty, y’all!

@Firehunter. Your hatred against juries is nothing but an inferiority complex in your mind added by a concerning obsessive-compulsive issue on your ESC convictions …
So the performances after 2000 in Eurovision have been, according to you, “more creative, original, diverse and…” qualitative????? Are you insane? Or proud of such bad taste? Do you think ESC is some stand-up comedy show or a circus? Disturbing …

OK, I looked Spain up on YouTube. I am not kicking myself. It was totally forgettable.

I am shocked. I seriously can’t remember Spain’s song. I will kick myself once I find out but I can’t think of it right now.

For example, it’s possible to reduce the number of participants in the final (from 26 to 22) and add points for starting position. Maybe 3 points for each starting position is too many, but 2 points definitely should not harm.

Maybe Eurovision does not need a revolution, but it’s necessary to change what does not work. The jury does not work.

Eurovision before 2000 was clearly weak and boring. In the 21st century this contest has been included many countries from the east. They were ambitious and more progressive than countries from west. Eurovision has gained thanks to them much greater popularity, because the performances were more creative, original, diverse and qualitative. Therefore they achieve the best results immediately after joining to the contest. The same was true even in the current year with Australia. In contrast, wester countries began to try to make good results only a few years ago. Now, in addition to good results in televoting, they have… Read more »

I’m just talking about the real reality. If it comes to some misunderstanding here, it’s not my fault. Exactly it is you do not want to just think about it.

It is simply international web page about Eurovision Song Contest. My comments here concern exactly this theme.

There were some good songs that year (shame about the winner!) but also many forgettable ones.
I always struggle to remember the Italian one and although I remember Sweden’s, I wish I did not.

Firehunter: A friendly reminder – please stick to the topic of discussion. This post is for discussing Eurovision 2013, not 2016.

Hey I happen to like 2013!

Wow I would have voted for half of these songs… For me this has to be one of the least memorable ESCs in history, and it’s the only one I actually attended outside Israel!

Guess who did not win ESC 2016 in Stockholm?
Armenia
Estonia
Hungary
Israel
Poland
Romania
Serbia
Why? Because jury will not let them.
