Over the weekend Malta selected Firelight for Eurovision 2014 with their song “Coming Home”. The song has proven to be very divisive with our readers. Some of you have commented that it is a rip-off of Iceland’s Eurovision 2011 song of the same name and that it’s like a bad cover of Mumford & Sons. Advocates say it’s original and avoids the Eurovision cliché of upbeat euro-pop.
But how does it stack up against this year’s existing competitors? Albania, Belarus, Finland, Italy, Malta, Switzerland, and Ukraine have all revealed their songs. Of these seven acts, who is your favourite? Who has the best chance of advancing to the final, and who will be leaving Copenhagen early?
Italy’s Emma Marrone won our inaugural poll last week. But now we’ve reset the votes to zero and are starting over. Please note: Maria Yaremchuk has unveiled a new version of her song, so you’ll want to listen to it again.
You can vote for as many contestants as you like but you can only vote ONE time. This poll will close on Thursday February 13.
Contestants chosen by February 9
Finland: Softengine with “Something Better”
Malta: Firelight with “Coming Home”
Switzerland: Sebalter with “Hunter of Stars”
