During the first semi-final at Eurovision 2015, two of the bookies’ favouritesEstonia’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!

Estonia, Greece and Romania are also my favorites, and according to this poll, all are in top 10.

1) Estonia ( I just love this song. Wouldn’t mind if this was the winner and I hope that they will have the same staging that they had for the national selection) 2) Albania ( I liked last year and i love this year. I’m alive is the sort of song that just make the repetition perfection. With the little “ay ay ay” at the beginning was sweet but at the end it was outstanding. Hopefully this will have the same success as Suus ) 3) Belgium ( Increases my depression but I love it. Not totally original because of… Read more »

Awww… rigging on this board is so high! Now we have a three-way tie for the most overhyped song that will probably not win the semi, but somehow wins here. At least Armenian entry is good. Their voices should match better and the first singer should lose his accent, but overall it’s a strong song. Overhyped as any Caucasian recent entry, of course, but still nice. And now to Albania and Georgia… they must be desperate to show how their respective songs are the best and create the illusion they will win. I know both songs indeed are well received,… Read more »
