Not every country competing at Eurovision is big enough, rich enough, and talented enough to stage a national selection. But this year 26 of the 37 state broadcasters took the effort. We were please to see the return of national selections in France, Spain, Slovenia and Belgium.
But which of this year’s shows were actually worth watching? Was Malta’s national selection worth sitting through all those commercials for that Maltese bank? Did the pain of Lithuania’s 12-part marathon selection justify the result? And can you still see after all the pyrotechnics of Sweden’s Melodifestivalen?
Go back a couple of weeks ago and take a closer look at this year’s national offerings, and then vote in our poll. Consider the quality of the songs competing, the hosts, the quality of the graphics, the interval acts, and, of course, the winner. You can vote for as many national selections as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time.
