This year DR, the host broadcaster, spent a huge chunk of money traveling around Europe filming the Eurovision postcards—those 50-second clips between acts that introduce the contestants. We ooo and ahhh and get rul, rul emotional. (Meanwhile, stage hands use the time to drag on drums and sets for the next act, and to sweep up stray sequins).
We know you liked a lot of them, but there has to be a winner. Which postcard tickled your fancy the most?
Did Sweden’s Sanna Nielsen take your breath away with her inflatable rafts? Did Albania’s Hersi make you want to run to a tattoo parlour? Did Romania’s Paula & Ovi light your fire(works)? Or did the Common Linnets have you booking a ticket to Amsterdam so you could start growing tulips?
You can review some of this year’s most talked-about postcards below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many countries as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. We’ll close this poll on May 30.
Please note that we cannot publish every postcard below. But let’s face it. If you don’t remember the postcard, it probably wasn’t your favourite…However, you can watch ALL 37 in this video from Eurovision.tv:
