Poll results: Blanche’s “City Lights” is the best music video of Eurovision 2017

18

Singers balancing in airborne hoops, horses pulling wooden carts and ladies yodelling on skyscrapers — this year’s music videos have it all. So one month ago we asked our readers who had the best music video at Eurovision 2017. You guys cast a whopping 18,364 votes and the results are in. With 7.77%  (1,427 votes) Blanche has slayed the competition with her atmospheric video for “City Lights”.

Belgium‘s entry was a hit with the Eurovision fans from the moment it was released two months ago. The song’s sleek production was matched with similarly flawless visuals. Contrasting the sophisticated beats with an almost expressionless face, Blanche wanders around an empty building. She is followed by a sphere of light that makes luminous waves in its path.  The demure singer finds shelter in a gorgeously modern house in the forest, while trees illuminate to the rhythm of the song. “All alone in the danger zone”, Blanche seems to look for darkness and shies away from spotlights (much like she does in real life).

Directed by by Simon Vanrie & Brice VDH in Belgium, the music video helped propel Belgium up the oddstable and raised expectations to levels Belgium hasn’t seen since Loic Nottet in 2015.

Our first reaction to Blanche’s “City Lights”

In second and third place, we find the vibrant videos for Francesco Gabbani’s “Occidentali’s Karma”, as well as the Woodkid-reminiscent visuals of Kristian Kostov’s “Beautiful Mess”. Less than 200 votes separated the three frontrunners.
