During the first semi-final at Eurovision, two of the bookies’ early favourites—Emmelie de Forest from Denmark and Anouk from the Netherlands—will face off with a microphone and an LED screen. Emmelie won’t be wearing shoes. Anouk will be singing about some birds. Contestants from Belarus, Ukraine and beyond will do their best to outshine both of them. It’s gonna be hot. But how is it all going to pan out?
Vote for your favorite in our poll to let us know what you think. You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time, so be sure to check the box by every contestant you want to support. You might want to vote in a few weeks after you’ve had time to think about this. The poll closes on May 12 at midnight—just ahead of the first semi-final on May 14.
Before you vote, you can listen to each of the Eurovision 2013 contestants on Wiwi’s contestants page to refresh your memory (or simply click on the links below). And be sure to check out our other polls when you have time.
