She may have come 13th at Eurovision 2011, but our readers believe that Slovenian Diva Maja Keuc should have won the whole thing.
Eurovision 2011 was an extremely open contest, which is why it was a practical choice for the second edition of Wiwi’s Way, where our writers re-watch the show and vote for who should have won in retrospect. After we voted (and chose Lena), we asked you guys to vote. It became pretty clear pretty early on that Miss Keuc, who sang “No One” at Eurovision 2011, was your favourite.
The Top Ten of Reader’s Way 2011
- Slovenia – Maja Keuc – No One (176 votes)
- Germany – Lena – Taken By A Stranger (167 votes)
- Sweden – Eric Saade – Popular (161 votes)
- Hungary – Kati Wolf – What About My Dreams (120 votes)
- Denmark – A Friend In London – New Tomorrow (110 votes)
- United Kingdom – Blue – I Can (94 votes)
- Estonia – Getter Jaani – Rockefeller Street (86 votes)
- Ukraine – Mika Newton – Angel (83 votes)
- Bosnia & Herzegovina – Dino Merlin – Love In Rewind and Ireland – Jedward – Lipstick (81 votes)
- (no tenth, tie in ninth)
It was as split as the actual contest: only 15 points separated first and third place! Do you think the right woman won?
The third edition of Wiwi’s Way, Eurovision 1999 in Jerusalem, will be published in the next week or two. So stay tuned!
In any case Running scared was song No.1
Oh, Yes She Should Won, but I can’t understand how she finished 13th ?
The most powerful voice of the evening was Nadine’s by far. She is The Voice of all voices ever on ESC.
But Maja had the best song of course in 2011
Maja a weak voice? She had the best voice in the competition!
The real problem was that the vocals were mixed too low compared to the instrumental, on this and most of the other songs. If Maja were to sing any louder she’d have been shouting. I do agree with the rest of the Wiwibloggs voters that she deserved to win.
If Maja Keuc had the voice of Nadine Beiler, or if Nadine sing No One, this song would have blown up the Scoreboard.
But Maja had a weak vocie and Nadine a bland song.
My 2011 Top 10
1 Germany 366
2 Cyprus 332
3 Bosnia & Herzegovina 320
4 Slovenia 177
5 Austria 175
6 Ireland 120
7 Denmark 98
8 United Kingdom 88
9 Poland 64
10 Croatia 59
2011 is still my fave ever contest because of how open it is. I just don’t watch the voting because I’m still gobsmacked that Running Scared won. I’ll just enjoy the rest of the songs!
My top 10 from Switzerland:
1: Bosnia and Herzegovina
6: United Kingdom
Totally agree on Maja Keuc as the retrospect winner! Not seeing the actual winner in the top 10 says enough too. In my humble opinion Hungary is heavilty overrated as the girl had hairy legs and could not hit the notes right. I like the studio recording of Hungary put if you cannot copy that quality on stage you deserve to loose (same goes for Azerbaijan, Sweden and Ireland, who all three had horrible singing by the main artists)
Look at these pathetic creatures out here trying to dismiss Azerbaijan!!!! Ugh!!! So sad!!!!
Switzerland should never have come last. 2011 was weird. Hungary, Estonia, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, Armenia, Albania and Turkey deserved better
For me TOP 10 from that year are
In TOP 10 in my opinion 2 countries are overrated Hungary and Bosnia Herzegovina. They performance in final for me not deserve TOP 10 in filnal that year Bosnia was on 6 th place in final.
Interesting , readers vote for Slovenia but in televote Slovenia didnt get so many points that year , and they only got many votes from juries in semifinal they get first in juries voting, and 4 in final juries voting but in televote they had on 7 in semi final and only 22 in televote in final .
Definitely agree. Some underrated entries from 2011 are Bulgaria, Albania, Serbia, Georgia, Iceland, Latvia, and Slovakia. Some overrated songs (in my opinion) are Norway, Sweden, Greece (extremely), Estonia, Israel, Hungary (extremely), and Germany. My favourites from 2011 were Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Albania, Georgia, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan.
I very much agree! Maja was my favourite that year, such an incredible voice, a great song, and a sexy, classy and quite simple staging, so fitting for the song. She deserved top 5 at the very least.
