During the first semi-final at Eurovision 2014, two of the bookies’ early favourites—Aram Mp3 from Armenia and Sanna Nielsen from Sweden—will face off with a microphone and a whole lot of blinking lights. Aram will be chanting “You’re not alone”. Sanna will be begging you to undo her sad.  Contestants from Hungary, Moldova and beyond will do their best to outshine both of them. And San Marino’s Valentina Monetta will be trying to make the final for the first time in three tries.

You can’t cast an official vote until May 6, so why not cast an unofficial one in our poll now? You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to check the box next to every contestant you want to support before pressing submit. You might want to wait and vote in a few weeks after you’ve had time to think about this very important decision.

You can listen to each of the Eurovision 2014 contestants on our contestants page to refresh your memory (or simply click on the links below).

The poll closes on May 4 at midnight—just ahead of the first semi-final on May 6. It’s up to you, Europe! Start voting now!

Albania: Hersiana Matmuja with “One Night’s Anger”

Hate to break this to you.

BUT!!!

ARMENIA’S popularity is decreasing fast. Booking agents are dropping their odds. Betting for Armenia was even suspended earlier today with some booking agents and then re-listed to be suspended again while booking agents reconsider its true odds. When rehearsals start next week guys Armenia is going to drop even further.

They aint going to win. Not a chance 😀

They will do well in the semi final. Get about 5th -6 th place

Sweden, Ireland, UK or Spain is going to win

I think peace loving free democratic Europe and the world community must ban fascist state Russia and their vassal Armenia totally for the occupation of Crimea bearing in mind the occupation of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine by the mentioned authoritarian fascist states such as Russia and Armenia. We are in free Europe and beyond shouldn’t be categorically in the the same boat with gay haters, gay beaters, fascists, trolls, liars, fabricators, dictators, tyrants, aggressors and illegitimate occupants and their supporters! Boycott fascist Russia and their vassal dog Armenia! We show disrespect to our freedom, beliefs, sovereignty and democracy in Europe… Read more »

Armenia will win this year. Aram mp3 is very well known for his live performances. I have been to one of his concerts and he totally blew the roof off. His vocals were unbelievable. And his charisma towards his audience was remarkable. He’s a great person and deserves to win because he has a great song this year.

I think… 1) Armenia – no brainer 2) Ukraine 3) Hungary 4) Azerbaijan – they could play the jaw harp and still end up in top 5 5) Sweden – one of the most popular ballads this year 6) Estonia – upbeat dance track with memorable staging 7) Russia – just because they’re Russia 8) Netherlands – sweet song, great harmonies, will do well with juries and non-Eurovision fans 9) Montenegro – don’t like song but its one of the only male ballads this year 10) San Marino – this is more wishful thinking but hopefully there’s enough of a… Read more »

My prediction for the 1st semi: 1) Hungary (overall the most popular entry in this semi’s countries) 2) Armenia (overrated, but good enough to get a very high rating) 3) Ukraine (not so much the song as for the singer, I suppose) 4) Belgium (might even get a better rating if it manages to stand out more) 5) Sweden (do I hear “Wrecking Ball”? Not enough friends here for a better result) 6) Azerbaijan (bland, but got the important neighbours in this semi) 7) Latvia (hilarious and will pass, but this is the highest rating I dare guess…) 8) Estonia… Read more »

Don’t they have a more important event in Azerbaijan or Armenia? Looks like eurovision is everything to them. Still think they have overrated songs.

I dont know how a song like the one of Azerbaijan that was actually the biggest dissapointment of this year is a runner up after the winner of this poll like this shows that even the votes here are political! VOTE SONGS NOT COUNTRIES

I don’t understand why the Armenians & the Azeris are sharing this poll… This wont effect the real voting in ESC. So there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON to share this in the first place :L
