As national selection season heats up, the contestants and songs for Eurovision 2014 are coming thick and fast. Every Sunday, after we have a new batch of winners, we’re asking you to tell us who your favourite contestant is so far. We close the poll every Thursday evening at midnight, and then reveal the results on Friday morning.
We’ve just completed our first installment (launched on February 2). You had strong opinions and spewed plenty of nasty. In the end Italy’s Emma Marrone has come out on top. Ciao bella!
Sadly for Teo, his “Cheesecake” did not appeal and you placed him at the bottom of the heap. Perhaps you’ll appreciate his dessert next week?
3. Switzerland: Sebalter with “Hunter of Stars” 112 votes, 13.43%
4. Ukraine: Maria Yaremchuk with “Tick-Tock” 96 votes, 11.51%
5. Belarus: Teo with “Cheesecake” 63 votes, 7.55%
You can listen to all of this year’s songs on our contestants page.
What do you think of Emma’s song? Do you think it’s a lively turn after Marco Mengoni’s slow number last year? Will it work on the #eurovision stage? And why is it better than Albania and Switzerland’s efforts?
