Between 2007 to 2013, every Nordic country won Eurovision except for Iceland. This region is packed with some of the world’s best producers, fiercest songwriters and most camera-ready singers. As Lordi, Alexander Rybak, Loreen and Emmelie de Forest have shown, there’s a lot of good music up north.
This year the bookies have already suggested that Sweden’s Sanna Nielsen, Norway’s Carl Espen, and Denmark’s Basim are going to challenge for the title. And Finland’s Softengine have done well with the Wiwi Jury. As for Iceland….well, we appreciate their message of tolerance.
But who do you want to see finish on top of the iceberg? You can lisen to each of this year’s Nordic entries below. Then vote in our poll. This poll closes on May 9, the day after the second semi-final. You can vote for as many contestants as you’d like, but you can only vote ONE time, so make it count.
Denmark: Basim with “Cliché Love Song”
Iceland: Pollapönk with “No prejudice”
Finland: Softengine with “Something Better”
