Eurovision 2018 Male Solo Acts

Eurovision 2018 is bringing us a truckload of solo males, eager to wow with their flawless vocals. We’ve got everything from country to soft rock. Balkan balladry to funk. Justin Timberlake swag to heartfelt love songs. Everything!

It’s been a girls world lately, for in the past 20 years, only four male soloist have won the Eurovision Song Contest.

Dima Bilan for Russia in 2008, Alexander Rybak for Norway in 2009, Måns Zelmerlöw for Sweden in 2015 and, last but certainly not least, the almighty Salvador Sobral for Portugal in 2017. However, that count does not include Austria’s Tom Neuwirth, for he competed as Conchita Wurst in 2014.

So it’s about time to give the boys some more space, for they are here and ready to sweep Europe and Australia off their feet, in the hopes of becoming the man to bring it all the way home.

Fourteen male soloists are gracing the Eurovision stage with their presence this year, including two returning artists and one former backup vocal gone lead. And we’re dying to find out, who is your favourite male vocalist of Eurovision 2018?

This is a tricky one. We love them all, but we want to know what you think! Who is the cream of the crop? Don’t let those fine gentlemen wait any longer. Vote for your favourite. But take note. It’s only possible to vote once, so make your vote counts. And also share your favourite pick in the comments below.

We will reveal the results of the poll ahead of the first rehearsals in Lisbon in May.

Melovin is so funny and interesting. That’s what I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJYrfMuCU1M

Greetings from the Chinese/Hong Kong fanclub of Eugene Bushpepa. http://www.eugenebush-hk.webnode.com

Kela
Guest

The website is in Chinese, i understood nothing unfortunately. But anyway a little mistake his name is EugenT not Eugen.

Tianxia
Guest

Alright, thanks for the correction. The site is only for Eugent’s Chinese-speaking fans, therefore certain names undergo a different spelling. By the way, we know Eugent not from the Eurovision but from charts where his song entered independently alongside the British & American ones.

Kela
Guest

Oh i understand now, great he has fans all around the globe. Yes but Eugent as a name has a totally different meaning from the name Eugene.

Davve
Guest

The best one by far is Eugent. Benjamin is such as spoiled a snake lame brat. He doesn’t show any feeling when singing. He is just horrible.

Rainbow
Guest

Eugent Bushpepa ( I like only his strong vocals )
Melovin – ( I like everything )
Ryan O´Shaughnessy – ( I like everything )

Max
Guest

Funny how Ari Ólafsson is always last in every poll. I mean he’s not THAT bad.

CyxCy
Guest

Emperor Cesar, my Austrian champion! XD
Yes, I add a little, but I had a real crush on his song, it’s my favorite among all this year. I feel a little lonely to think, but I don’t care. And then this man is devilishly attractive, which does not spoil anything.
Even if I support my country (France) with all my energy, I would be super happy if it ‘s “Nobody but you” who wins the contest. And Austria, it’s not far from France to go to party! XD

Victoria
Guest

For me the most notable are Eugent and Alekseev.

Coli

“Why is everyone all of a sudden praising Albania?” Maybe due to three excellent emotional and note perfect live performances?

Jo

Eugent

Janro

I’ve noticed some Eurovision fans complaining that this is a very male orientated year but there are far more female soloists than male soloists it seems. There are only 14 male soloists out of 43 entries with a further 6 coming from groups. That’s only 20 out of 43. Also, some people are saying there are way too many male ballads this year… There are only 7 (Ireland, Iceland, Armenia, Montenegro, Georgia, Albania, Germany) when there are 8 up-beat female songs (Finland, Switzerland, Macedonia, Cyprus, Azerbaijan, Slovenia, Malta, Australia, Israel). I think it’s quite even so people shouldn’t really be… Read more »

Eugent Bushpepa and Waylon are my faves! They rock 😀

ALEKSEEV

Bushpepa is love, Bushpepa is life.

enee

Off top, speaking about men, when can we expect Eurovision Next Top Male and Female models 2018? Just asking 🙂

RichUK
Guest

Waylon, Eugent Bushpepa, Micheal Schulte and Alekseev get my vote. These are the dark horses in my own opinion. They might not win but i hoping for a very good result for these amazing artists.

Eugent by MILES !

VillageLights
Guest
1. Ryan O´Shaughnessy – the overall package of this song works for me and I wouldn’t change anything if I could. So so sweet yet so underrated 2. Benjamin Ingrosso – this is so in your face sexy and the loungey retro feel – Sweden didn’t dissapoint. hopefully slightly less robotic in Lisabon tho 3. Alekseev – Diggin’ the slight psycho vibe!! He kind of looks tense when he preforms and the awkward hand movement needs to go 4. Rasmussen – kinda outdated but at the same time fresh! gave me goosebumps before. oh and great voice 5. Waylon –… Read more »
Lourdes

I voted for Eugent and Mélovin and apparently they’re top 2 😀

Lourdes
Guest

But Eugent is the best for me obviously. I wish I could see him live someday!!

Jack
Guest

Eugent and Melovin

Simon
Guest

Cesar is the Best…..Eugent is good but the Song is boring…Melovin Sorry Not my Cup of Tea…..CESAR you are perfekt

Sabrina
Guest

I’ve voted also for Waylon, but Eugent is my obvious answer here. The best performer, male or female, of this Eurovision. Cesár and Melóvin would fight for the my bronze medal. I love Sevak’s voice and I think Ari has a lot of potential.

Kim
Guest

Belarus will win this year. Alexeev has too many fans, a million or more … =(

Skimur
Guest

Almost all of them are in Ukraine and Russia, so they will not be able to bring Alexeev many points.

Tahnee
Guest

Dutch Alekseev fan here! Will def vote for him if he makes it to the grand final.

Malin
Guest

…and here is a Swedish Alekseev fan. And I will do the same as Tahnee.

HoneyBS
Guest

Argentian fan here. Vote for me in my honor (?), please! XD

Yaa
Guest

Happy to do it!

Santelle
Guest

I fell in love with the Albanian guy since his performance in Amsterdam, so my vote went to him and only him!

loveeurovision
Guest

melovin and his enchanting confidence wins my vote!

Sabrina
Guest

Enchanting confidence is a great way to describe Mélovin’s talents.

eb
Guest

Eugent and Rybak, but i voted for Eugent.

AngieP
Guest

Many good acts here! The first one that comes to my mind is Albania! I also like Czech Republic, Armenia, Germany and Ukraine.

Monica
Guest

This poll has never been easier! Voted for Eugene without even reading other names!

Marla
Guest

IT’S RAINING MEEEN!!!

Eleni
Guest

The Albanian guy has an outstanding vocal range. But overally speaking concerning performing . I would say Melovin. This dude combines uniqueness , challenging style , great live vocals , theatrical performing and energy on stage. He can captivate you for sure. If only he had a bomb song. He would win this.

Gerald
Guest

The Ukrainian guy got ditched twice from the Ukrainian X-Factor auditions, and now you claim that he is one of the Eurovision giants! Get real! He will end up last on the semi with four points, two out of pity!

Eleni
Guest

But you forgot to mention that he eventually won x factor 6. Why do people have to focus on negative stuff and ignore other’s achievements? No matter the final place you can definitely say that he is chasing his dream no matter how many times he got ditched. Yet you choose to look down on him. Now thats the real pity

Kirsten
Guest

Gerald Lol. If he isn’t a competitor to your fav, then why are you trying to humiliate him?

Eleni
Guest

Kirsten Melovin has got a challenging look & personality. Not many people appreciate so. Its ok if someone does not like him or his song. But oh common betting on someone’s failure and looking down on them – focusing on their negatives. Oh thats a sad thing humans do

Purple Mask

Trying to treat this poll seriously, considering all of these performers are excellent:
Best natural voice: Sevak (Armenia)
Most awesome vocal range: Eugent (Albania)
Best all-round musician: Alexander Rybak (Norway)
Best falsetto voice: Ryan (Ireland) OR Benjamin (Sweden)
Most criminally underrated: Ari (Iceland)
Best deep voice: None of the above. All high singers this year.

Carlos
Guest

Based on live performances i’ve seen Eugent,Waylon,Melovin and Cesar are the best singers and have best stage presence (which is impressive for teenboy like Melovin)
Mikolas on big stage looks lost and his backpack is silly, Benjamin is good performer but his voice is nothing special….

Eve
Guest

Damn, I can’t decide! 😛

Yaa
Guest

C’mon Eve!

Eve
Guest

ok, Forever is hypnotizing, I admit 😀

Diana
Guest

Eugent Bushpepa (Albania) has the professional vote!

Uli
Guest

I only voted for my crush here….lol…. Melovin is so dreamy and handsome… and he acts like a king on stage…sexy and confident boy…adore him:))

Purple Mask
Guest

Mélovin shares my dreams sometimes. No idea why. He’s just there randomly, sometimes singing.
We have never actually met as far as I know. Haunting.

Eleni
Guest

Dude is amazing. I mean he is so interesting as an artist. He stands out

David
Guest

I guess Eugent. Not so much for the song (here I guess I would go for Austria) but for his artistic personality, his presence on stage and of course his voice.

My2Cents
Guest

Why is everyone all of a sudden praising Albania? Yes, he has outstanding vocals! But the song is OUTDATED AS F**K

LydV
Guest

that’s what people were saying about Salvador’s song last year soooooooo

My2Cents
Guest

Salvador’s song had this evergreen quality to it. Mall sounds like you can hear it in… a mall. In 2007. But I love the guy’s personality so I’m sad his song isn’t better.

Aria
Guest

Because people can think act can mean best vocals: Eugent wins it

Best song: Cesar wins it

Most fans on social media: Melovin wins it

Yaa
Guest

Check your numbers: Melovin has 92k followers on Instagram and Alekseev 663k. Same thing on Facebook or Vk.

Lourdes
Guest

Rock is eternal, not outdated 😀

Bobby
Guest

Eugent has amazing voice but his song is so meh…the best combination of great voces and great songs have Cesár, Mélovin and Waylon…..Mikolas is so overrated his song is annoying and his voice is average…

Joseph
Guest

Oh my… not you and your repetitive stupidity again!!!

My2Cents
Guest

there’s people who agree with Bobby, so deal with it

Koning
Guest

The only one who agrees with him is himself with another nickname “My2Cents”, lol. Get lost, lil serbian troll!

Aria
Guest

I don’t think he is serbian at all! I think he is that ladi guy from the sammarinese jury

My2Cents
Guest

Are you talking about me? I’m neither Serbian or Sanmarinese. And sorry if someone’s harsh opinions offend you but hey free speech. However, it’s rude to call out actual commenters. I never mean to troll people but I have the right to voice my subjective opinion/feeling about something.

Diana
Guest

Eugent Bushpepa (Albania) has the professional vote!

Roy Moreno
Guest

Voted for Eugent and Waylon for their amazing vocals 🙂
Very well done guys and good luck!

Amelia
Guest

Just Albania! All else is nothing!!!

navsegda
Guest

Doesn’t matter who wins this one here, it is obvious that Eugent is the best one

Yaa
Guest

They said best male act, so for me is Alekseev! Love your nickname, though!

Koning
Guest

And the best male act is Albania!

Malin
Guest

Agree, Alekseev

Purple Mask
Guest

Alexander Rybak was left out of the actual poll, it seems.

Ronda
Guest

He should be!

Purple Mask
Guest

LOL. I don’t think Kristin would do that intentionally.

Kris
Guest

That song should be left oflut of the competition! Not many would notice

Yaa
Guest

True

Padraig Muldoon
Editor

The omission was made in error. He’s now included in the poll. 🙂

Daniela
Guest

I should support my own country (won’t tell which) but I’ll be fair and vote for the deserved one which is Eugene Bushpepa. May the best guy win!

Roelof Meesters
Guest

Sweden Ukraine and The Netherlands all the way. They serve quality and deserve a top ten finish.

Mario
Guest

Eugent Bushpepa. That goes without saying!

Offcourse. A majority of who listened at Francesco first time wasn’t inflences by the hype around the song. Same thing whith Netta. It’s a good song, but it won’t win.

Ghostwriter
Guest

Tim I agree, the 3 winners above were really classy.

Andrea
Guest

Sevak for me. Eugent, Rasmussen and Vanja are in a very, VERY close second, but Sevak’s voice is haunting, in a good way.

Olik
Guest

Ari is way too low on this poll. He is such a talented young man.

Curve
Guest

Alekseev and Ari would have high votes if they represent with the right song.
