During the first semi-final at Eurovision 2015, two of the bookies’ favourites — Estonia’s Elina & Stig and Finland’s Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät — will face off with a microphone and a whole lot of blinking lights. Elina & Stig will give romance rhythm while PKN will show that people with special abilities have the right to make music too. Elsewhere Albania’s Elhaida Dani, who has emerged as a major threat since revamping her song, will prove she’s not just alive, but alive and kicking and in it to win it. And Georgia’s Nina Sublatti, who won three of our pre-contest polls in a landslide, will hope to live up to her billing as a “Warrior”. Contestants from Russia, Belgium and beyond will do their best to outshine all of them.
You can’t cast an official vote until May 19, so why not cast an unofficial one in our poll now? You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to check the box next to every contestant you want to support before pressing submit. You might want to wait and vote in a few weeks after you’ve had time to think about this very important decision.
You can listen to each of the Eurovision 2015 contestants on our contestants page to refresh your memory (or simply click on the links below).
The poll closes on May 18 at midnight—just ahead of the first semi-final on May 19. It’s up to you, Europe! Start voting now!
