The Eurovision 2016 promotional tour has now come to an end.

The overall standard of performances was quite high, but we want to know who you thought performed best.

Did fan favourite Amir from France blow the roof off? Did Eurovision pre-party virgins Nicky Byrne from Ireland and Frans from Sweden rock your socks? Let us know in our poll! And no: You cannot vote for Destiny Chukunyere (but you can watch her live performance in our YouTube playlist).

In my opinion Sweden`s entry is a rip off of Matt Simons` song “Catch and release”. The tune through the entire song is much too similar to Matt`s song. Even the rhythmic structure is almost identical. I hope there will be an investigation about that.

@ w?sinska to mi?o, ?e sprostowa?as, ?e to ty nie lubisz tej piosenki. Widz?, ?e sobie odpu?ci? nie mo?ecie, wy fani Margaret. Mia?a jechac…? ale jakim cudem skoro przegra?a, bo nie umie ?piewa? na ?ywo tym swoim p?askim wokalem. Poza tym to spekulowanie,?e Micha? nie wygra jest co najmniej niestosowne i nie na miejscu. A ty skoro tak kibicujesz Micha?owi to kibicuj dalej i nie wyskakuj tu z Margaret. To tyle.

The questio in the poll is ‘who had the best live performance’, not which is your favourite song. So, I understand that people think that Anton and Kaliopi were almost the worst?! Good job then!

Shame on me – I forgot to mention Kaliopi! Honestly, wasn’t a fan of her and wasn’t paying attention to her and her song when getting to know other this years performers on YouTube. And it’s shame on me twice! What a beautiful lady inside and out she is!! Bubbly personality, pure and honest! And UK absolutely adores her and now I really get why! After the show she stayed and chatted with EVERY single person who approached her (and trust me there was and incredible queue!) did pictures, gave his and signed autographs and was honestly interested in EVERY… Read more »

Poli was mind blowing at LEP! She has a great voice, stunning looks and absolutely radiant personality! She is like a ball of energy! When she performed on Sunday you couldn’t do anything apart from watching her on stage and smile all the way through! And when she went to perform with Amir was like a cherry on top – it was so adorable and funny how they tried to sing each other’s songs. And that hug at the end, aww… Also I surprisingly liked Amir. When was going to LEP he wasn’t even in my top 10, but now… Read more »

Well France and Belgium are not alone in being attacked. I grew up in the UK, and I have lived through several terror attacks on this country, first by the IRA (for decades) and then by Islamic extremists (in 2005). Spain has been attacked by ETA in the past, as well as islamic extremists; Norway had the Brevik bombings; Bulgaria had a suicide bombing in 2012; even Austria was attacked by the ‘Bavarian Liberation army’ in 1995! If you really want a full list of those attacks (at least in the EU), here it is: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terrorism_in_the_European_Union Of course, this has… Read more »

Bella, this is not a matter of considering to deserve the win or not. I will be pleased if France will win this year after so many time and bad performances, but in any case, we can use the terrible events happening last year and this year as an argument not to vote for a country such as France or Belgium as exemple.

Good to see you agree now !

@Bella, put Terrors attack in the balance for choice of best singer on a simple song contest is not only stupid but mainly shocking, especially for the french guy I am ….

Please turn you tongue (or fingers) seven times to think before to write a comment like this ! or just don’t write anything rather than that !

What a shame !

In my opinion Michal from Poland is one of the best singers this year,he delivers on every live,he is got incredible voice. Poli – great song,great stage presence but bad voice live. Eneda Ovidiu Kaliopi/ great voices ,terrible songs.

All of you are so jealous of Sweden.For all of you every artist had charisma except from Frans all can win except from Frans.if I were sorry doing exyremely well in spotify.Why you dont buy your favourite jai cherche? I hope Sweden win both juryand televote to prove you that ypu are all wrong! Eurovision os a bit political and why should we send the contest in a country with terror attacks? Even on Russia is better.

I voted for Kaliopi and Nina. I really don’t get it the ones who says than Nina lacks of the stage presence. Nina is a different kind of artist. You will not see her dancing or jumping. She stands and sings but with such grace and unique beauty. I like those kind of artists. She doesn’t try too much to be unique – she is who she is and That’s beautiful. I just hope that people will recognize that and vote for Croatia. It would be a horrible mistake that great performer like Nina herself and masterpiece like “Lighthouse” stay… Read more »

There are quite few who never fail to impress live and thats im gonna vote ,not because the song is catchy…The real live performances we will see at Stolchom and then we will know who is good…I dont care if the song isnt catchy or memorable if live your not good for me your done and im sure millions think just the way i do.

for me Ira Losco sang great and she’s now the third most viewed entry this year on YouTube

she made it sound easy, while it isn’t easy to sing like this, she seemed also the most comfortable on that stage, also loved the duet with Destiny of her song 7th wonder 🙂

so i voted for Poli and Ira 🙂 🙂

Amir sang “j’ai cherché” very well and he was fabulous on stage singing “golden boy”.
No problem for stockholm , Amir will be ready to deliver his performance.it’s a great contender for the victory .
Michal Szpak has a wonderful voice as always but the song is so boring!
i like nina’s voice and her song but her presence on stage is not good enough and the dress is awful.
I like Spain and Italy too.

Amir can’t hit the high notes yet. Don’t think he has them in him. Too much auto-tune in the studio version, I fear.

This could become a massive failure from one of the favorites in the great final day, considering how clear the sound goes through our TV speakers…”Le coq français”

@Landi: Only a interview in spanish of Barei.
@David Who: I thought like you, but now I’m not sure. I think Russia could censor a lot of things in the ESC or change others. Anyway my favourite this year is France so I will vote for Amir. I want to say to everybody that if you want to vote for Russia I hope you will, thinking that things can change in a good way. But I think that we couldn’t forget this incident and Hovi deserves respect and support of the eurofans.

@Angel: I understand your point of view, and what happened is very hurtful. I would please ask that you hear my point of view before boycotting Russia in the voting. My view is that if Russia is left to its own devices, things will get worse rather than better. People of any culture need to be reminded that we all live together on one planet, called Earth. We are all different, but we all have to live together. Bringing the ESC to Russia again can help remind its culture of the true diversity of the world. One man (Hovi Star)… Read more »
