Earlier this month, we saw the stars of Eurovision 2017 as they’ve toured around the pre-party circuit. They gave interviews, forged new friendships (and bromances) and most importantly gave us a sample of what is to come in Kyiv. But which performances were your favourites?

We ran a series of polls asking you which pre-party performances were your favourites from the shows in Riga, London, Tel Aviv and Amsterdam. And one clear winner emerged. Poland’s Kasia Mos — one of the few artists to perform at all four events — also topped all four polls. A double grand slam!

But other artists also gave memorable performances and came close to topping the polls. Let’s take a look.

Who wowed you the most at the Riga Pre-Party?

We asked who wowed you the most at the Riga Pre-Party and there was one very clear favourite. Kasia Mos has impressed Polish viewers at the national final, but it wasn’t until her Riga performance that fans realised the extend of her vocal talents — girl can sing! She wowed the Riga crowd and wiwibloggs readers, earning almost 40% of the vote. Belarus’s Naviband was in second place with 17.6% of the vote, followed by Norway’s JOWST in third with 16.99% of the vote.

  1. Poland’s Kasia Mos 39.62% (1,472 votes)
  2. Belarus’ Naviband 17.6% (654 votes)
  3. Norway’s JOWST 16.99% (631 votes)
  4. Czech Republic’s Martina Barta 13.41% (498 votes)
  5. Latvia’s Triana Park 12.38% (460 votes)

What was your favourite performance at London Eurovision Party 2017?

Next came the London Eurovision Party and we asked what was your favourite performance at London Eurovision Party 2017. Kasia Mos was again the favourite with almost 14% of readers loving her performance of “Flashlight”. In second place with 12.38% of the vote was Italy’s Francesco Gabbani, whose feel-good performance of “Occidentali’s karma” brought the house down. In third place was Bulgaria’s Kristian Kostov – his understated performance of “Beautiful Mess” captured hearts with 11.1% of the vote.

  1. Poland – Kasia Mos with “Flashlight” 13.98% (1,286 votes)

Taking into consideration that Lindita was at only one of these concerts and comes from a small country – she was in Spain as well where she gave a singing lesson to all singers at this years Eurovision I am happy that she is 6th at Amsterdam’s poll but deserves much more – voice and stage presence.

Would never predict that. She may have strong vocals but her song is far from being universally attractive, like last year.

Dihaj of Azerbaijan! In Amsterdam she was given the poorest sound technicians ever (like something from a primary school parade recital) yet her incredible voice still shone through, you could tell her control and composure was first class. She’s one cool cat.

Purple joke alert: The Pole has won the polls! 😀
I was only at the London party in person (not the other locations); it was a privilege to experience Kasia’s performances – she is a very powerful vocalist. I think the results of the polls are largely accurate. Well done Kasia.

Oh come on, she DESERVED that number 1 spot. Just like Michal last year, she slayed all of the performances with her vocals. And here’s on thing many people don’t realize – winning these pools DOSEN’T mean she’s now a red hot favourite to win the contest. Performing in the club is soooo different from performing on a huge Eurovision stage… And that’s where the other act will shine. Hopefully she does well and makes it through the final.

Only that Kasia is a lot better than last years’ Polish artist. Songwise (ESPECIALLY songwise) and vocally.

I realize it’s easy for me to say that Poles aren’t “hijacking” the polls (see what I did there lol) – especially considering the partial giveaway of my background in my username but I honestly don’t think it’s the case here. If they/we were truly hijacking the polls we would see her rank high/highest in pretty much all of them (not just the live performance ones). Flashlight isn’t my #1 song by any means (wasn’t even my fav in krajowe eliminacje) but I really do think that she is one of/the best live singers this year – hence the high… Read more »

She’s a stiff performer and her “great vocals” are nothing more than nasal screams. I think Poland will once again be all the way down the jury scoreboard.

Kasia “pole-vaulted” over the competition, and is now looking down on us from the “North Pole.” Off topic, I’m looking forward to “Polling Day”
here in the UK. Sorry if I just “poleaxed” your joke. 😀

Kasia is too harsh on stage. It looks agressive and very unlikeable.
We know Poles are everywhere (Europe and Internet)..

Last year I support Michal cause he was amazing. But with Kasia I just can’t.. it’s an awful song and the singer makes it even worse.
Poland is better than this.

What’s wrong with her looking aggressive? Do women have to look soft and non-threatening.

She and the whole entry looks agressive in a bad way. At Eurovision you need to connect somehow and with this entry is impossible.

You can be agressive but needs to work and be appealing. Like Ruslana in 2004 for example. This is not the case 🙂
