Along with host country Austria and guest country Australia, the Big Five — France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom — receive an automatic qualification to the grand final of Eurovision. We have a lot to thank the Big Five for, as their coins help keep the contest going. This year we can thank them even more for sending some quality entries!
At the moment four out of seven automatic qualifiers are ranked in the Top 15 in the Eurovision betting odds, including Italy’s Il Volo, Australia’s Guy Sebastian, the United Kingdom’s Electro Velvet and Spain’s Edurne. Germany, France and Austria sit at the bottom of the odds table – but we love their entries nonetheless. They all earned huge applause at recent promo events in London and Amsterdam.
But who is YOUR favourite? You can listen to the seven automatic qualifiers below and then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many acts as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. This poll will close on May 22 at 23:59 CET, just before the grand final on May 23. Let us know what you think!
