Every day until December 24, we’re stuffing your stockings with a new Eurovision poll and asking for your opinion about important matters such as which entry had the biggest impact on Eurovision and who had the best follow-up single in 2015. Consider this our advent calendar for 2015. Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can let us know your thoughts each and every day by casting your vote and sounding off in our comments section. Get your ornaments ready for today’s poll!
Day 16: Trees in Eurovision 2015
The Christmas tree is an important part of seasonal decor. For some it’s so important that they get in early to find the perfect tree. Perhaps even as early as May…
Surprisingly, many of this year’s artists had some sort of tree in their background graphics. While no one went for typical Christmas trees such as spruce, pine or fir, we still saw many different kinds of trees.
But who had the best tree backdrop this year? Vote for your favourites in our poll. Make sure to check the box next to all your favourites and then press submit. Remember that we aren’t looking for the best song or performance, but the most beautiful or fitting backdrop.
Armenia: Genealogy – “Face The Shadow”
Armenia’s Genealogy literally brought genealogy to their performance — or at least a tree to represent it. We saw it growing, fighting the wind and ultimately flourishing in all its glory.
Hungary: Boggie – “Wars For Nothing”
During Hungary’s performance we saw a cluster of ammunition and guns turn into a tree, which eventually turned the whole LED screen into a peaceful and green scene from nature.
Ireland: Molly Sterling – “Playing With Numbers”
Ireland didn’t settle for just one tree, instead bringing a big enchanted forest. Shining in gold, it made the whole stage look very cosy.
Azerbaijan: Elnur Huseynov – “Hour Of The Wolf”
Just like Ireland, Azerbaijan had a number of trees on their backdrop. However, this one wasn’t cosy at all, but rather eerie, a perfect fit for the song’s atmosphere.
Switzerland: Mélanie René – “Time To Shine”
Following the theme of her music video, Switzerland’s Mélanie had a forest on her backdrop as well. Representing the lyrics of the song, the forest started in darkness but was illuminated as the song progressed, making the stage shine.
Poland: Monika Kuszynska – “In The Name Of Love”
The stage was filled with pink during Poland’s performance and the only suitable tree for this was, of course, the blossoming cherry tree.
France: Lisa Angell – “N’oubliez Pas”
During Lisa Angell’s performance, we saw a decimated city slowly rebuild. In the end the sky was bright blue and the trees were blooming in green.
