Some days ago, we presented to you the Top 10 trends of ESC 2014. We declared it to be the year of angry woman, honkey-tonk and cake!

Our readers were totally enthusiastic and have come up with even more trends. And since we love our readers and embrace their input (and their love), we’re pleased to present “Eurovision 2014 trends : the Wiwibloggs-readers edition!”

Whistling (from Wiwibloggs-reader vikutoru)

SH_2014D3_Switzerland 16 Wiwibloggs-reader Vikutoru asked us what’s with all the whistling this year. Ukraine,  Switzerland and Denmark went for the basic sounds you can produce yourself without the need of a flute (although that brought Emmelie  the victory last year). Anyway, all the whistling  definitely makes  us happy!

Hair-issues (from Wiwibloggs-readers Chris and Marcelo N)

Pollapönk eurovision trends 2014 postThe hair-issue is also hot this year, as Marcelo N and Chris wrote. We have Twin-Twin who are desperate for some facial hair, begging for a moustache to grow. And of course we have Conchita, who has more than enough facial hair. Perhaps Conchita can make a charity-donation to help Twin-Twin out? And if you ask us, the nice guys from Iceland’s Pollapönk don’t seem to have a shortage either! Hair we go!

Shaken, not stirred… (from Wiwibloggs-reader Robyn)

maria ukraine eurovision 2014 trends Wiwibloggs-reader Robyn pointed out the number of James Bond-theme-liked songs this    year. ‘Rise like a phoenix‘ can be added to a James-Bond compilation CD right away. The  same goes for Valentina’s ‘Maybe‘ and the The Tolmachevy Twins’ ‘Shine‘.  Perhaps also  Hersi’s One Night Anger and Moldova’s ‘Wild Soul‘. And if you ask us, Ukraine may  have watched Goldeneye one too many times before compiling the music-video of ‘Tick-Tock’. To be honest: Maria totally can pull of the 007-sexy-spy-thing. We wouldn’t mind seeing her on the big screen in the next Bond-movie!

You tell him, girl! (or guy) (from Wiwibloggs-readers Huh and Marcelo N)

TEO eurovision trends 2014

Wiwibloggs-readers Huh and Marcelo N think we have a lot of songs talking about respect. In particular in relationships. TEO is done with the lady that thinks of him as nothing than a ‘toyboy cheesecake‘. Elaiza wants to know where they stand and if it’s right or wrong. Conchita tells us that she is seeking retribution (rather than vengeance).  While Vilija warns the guy at the bar she is not that naive and is gonna make him fall to his knees. You tell him, girl!

Chilled men (from Wiwibloggs-reader suzy will win)

Aarzemnieki Cake to Bake lyrics Our Wiwi Blogger-reader ‘suzy will win’ (really?) points out that amid all the angry women there are a lot of ‘chilled men’. And indeed, there are! We seem to  have a lot of easy going – sitting/dancing in the park, guitar playing, enjoying the easy life –  guys. The guys from Aarzemnieki and Softengine, Firelight and Pollapönk,  Freaky Fortune  feat. Riskykidd, Twin-Twin and Sebalter all seem to enjoy life (or at least the music).  It’s all good, no stress!

More elevation (from Wiwibloggs-reader Fatima)

Although we did mention songs that go to the higher atmospheres, Wiwibloggs-reader Fatima asked for a separate ‘Elevation’-category. And of course we can’t deny our readers anything. Three songs stand out this year on the topic of elevation. Greece’s Rise Up, Austria’s ‘Rise Like a Phoenix’ and FYR Macedonia’s ‘To the Sky‘ literally take it to a next stage. Ready for lift off!

Bad songs?! (from Wiwibloggs-reader Ron)

dustin turky bad songs trends 2014
Dustin’s song still stands as one of the worst ESC songs ever.

We are not sure what Wiwibloggs-reader Ron was thinking when he said that one of the trends is ‘a lot of  bad songs’.  But we do offer you an insight into what our beloved Wiwi-jury thought of all the songs  this year. There were  definitely a few songs that deserved a bit of harsh judgement from us. Read what they had to  say and let us know: is 2014 a ESC-year of bad songs?! Comment below!

Nice observation on the Bond trend, but I personally think Mariya looks more like an ukranian Carmen Sandiego 😛

Thank you for taking our suggestions into account! <3
(on a shallow/chauvinistic note, I would love to see Mariya as a Bond spy…yum!!)

@Dhani: I take it you’re employing the concept of “a song so bad it is so good” in thinking Georgia will win. Or is this an example of snark you’re employing? In either case, Georgia is NOT last on my scorecard.
