Ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 next month in Vienna, we asked you to relive the good, the bad and the ugly of national selection and pick your favourite show of the 2015 season. After 4,653 votes, we have the results and there is a clear winner.
First place: Melodifestivalen 2015
Despite some major changes and the introduction of the official voting app, y’all have voted Sweden’s Melodifestivalen as your favourite national final with a whopping 1,053 votes, that’s 22.63% of the overall total! This year’s six week event was co-hosted by Robin Paulsson and last year’s winner Sanna Nielsen. We went through highs (Eric Saade’s flying saucer) and lows (Molly PH failing to advance still makes us cry overtime) and clearly y’all loved the drama.
Second place: Selectia Nationala
Romania’s Selectia Nationala finished at a distant second place with 343 votes, 7.37% overall. This year’s national final is most likely to be remembered for the memorable interval act from 2004 Eurovision winner Ruslana. And not forgetting one of our own correspondents was part of this year’s national jury panel in Craiova.
Third place: Melodi Grand Prix 2015
Just like Melodifestivalen, Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix also went through some major changes this year, most notably scrapping the semi-finals and the return of the orchestra for their one-off appearance. They finished third with 281 votes, 6.04% overall.
