National final season is rapidly drawing to a close and the songs just keep on coming.
When we wrapped up our last poll on Friday, we left you with 21 official confirmed acts for Eurovision 2018. Now, mere days later, that number has exploded. As of the evening of Tuesday 6 March, we have 32 named acts and songs for Lisbon.
It all began with song reveals from Cyprus and the Netherlands on Friday. Then in the penultimate Super Saturday of the year, five countries chose their representatives for next May’s contest — Finland, Estonia, San Marino, Iceland and Poland.
Azerbaijan dropped in the early hours of Sunday morning, while Portugal chose in the evening. Monday brought us Belgium (after a leak the night before). And finally, today we got Croatia.
Checking the Eurovision calendar, it looks like we have a couple of days to breathe before the next song lands. So it’s the perfect time to vote for your favourites.
You can listen to all eleven new entries below. Then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting ends at 23:59 CET on Thursday 8 March — just before Austria reveals its entry on Friday.
For the purposes of this poll, we are only including entries which have been officially released and or confirmed by the powers that be — you can’t vote for any leaked songs which are only available through unofficial channels.
Cyprus: Eleni Foureira “Fuego”
The Netherlands: Waylon “Outlaw in ‘Em”
Finland: Saara Aalto “Monsters”
Estonia: Elina Nechayeva “La Forza”
San Marino: Jessika feat. Jenifer Brening “Who We Are”
Iceland: Ari Ólafsson “Our Choice”
Poland: Gromee feat. Lukas Meijer “Light Me Up”
Azerbaijan: Aisel “X My Heart”
Portugal: Cláudia Pascoal “O Jardim”
Belgium: Sennek “A Matter of Time”
Croatia: Franka Batelic “Crazy”

Portugal melody, the best

BULGARIA Nº1 TOP TOP
my top 3:
1. Israel – by far!!!
MyTop 4 :
Only Georgia, and we have all entrys this year, still Spain is my number one,dont care what haters say , never i did, good luck to all participants
Points: from 1 to 5. My top 4 songs: 1. Greece (5) 2. France (5) 3. Italy (5) 4. Belgium (4,50) Albania: lyrics- 4,5; vocals- 5; music- 2; (His vocals remind me too much of Slavin Slavchev. The music is very flat! There are no bumps. It doesn’t hit me in the brain as a rock song should do.) Armenia: lyrics- 4; vocals- 4; music- 3; (Looks like Fiki Storaro. Nice ballad but nothing special.) Australia: lyrics- 1; vocals- 2; music- 2; video- 1; (Too much Demi Lovato. Cliche song lyrics. The music and the video are much alike SuRie’s… Read more »
Because no cyrillic is available:
Ei, Desy 😉
Prati pozdravi na Gischo (Mrysno KUCHE)!
your taste is only horrible, point.
Seriously, the best is the Portuguese song, second the Italian.
Will the Portuguese win again?
This never happened.
portugal melody is the the most beatiful.
I have to say that my top 3 favorites are Germany, Australia and Cyprus now. Good luck MIchael, Jessica & Eleni !!
The worst Song so far are: Estonia, Belgium, Israel, The Netherland, France, Portugal,Italy,and Ukrain.
The most strange taste so far are: YOU
You should have written “in my opinion the worst,….” once the pool suggests the opposite,….
5. The Czech Republic
8. The Netherlands
12. Finland (a live performance is much worse than the studio version)
Wow, Italians have invaded this poll 😛 When did that happen? I’m not complaining though, as Italy is my #1 too 😀
My number 1 too. The invasion seemed to be pretty gradual this time. Slowly crept their way up.
Belgium,France and Ukraine are the best, others just so/so
do Spain fans really think they can win with this ? lol
Finland sounds bad live and her staging is terrible too, Saara disappointed me….
Wow. The list right now is pretty close to my personal one. Did not expect that:)
Been loving Portugal the last 2 days. Wouldn´t mind if they won again:)
My favs so far (in no particular order): Czech Republic, Portugal, Belgium, Greece, Cyprus, Poland, Belarus
When was the last time this poll proved to be an indicator of anything?
MyTop 10 :
10. The Netherlands
Wow! So close at the top. Portugal and Ukraine tied at time of writing. Didn’t expect that at all, though they’re both currently in my top 5.
I do agree 😉
Wiwibloggs should review its poll system.
For the moment the most correct ones are Escstats (already open) and Eurovisioon.ee (it only opens while all songs are out).
But I am a huge fan of EscNation’s poll. It’s all divided in country-based IPs. It distributes votes based on ESC-style douze-points. And they have an interactive scoreboard. *esc-gasming*
I remember I used to spend hours online on this when I was a teenager back in the mid 00’s.
Yeah, maybe Wiwibloggs voting system is not the best but I just checked the polls you mentioned. They don’t seem to have made more accurate predictions than Wiwipoll.
It’s maybe because those other polls don’t appeal a wide audience as Wiwibloggs do, who knows?
Melovin (Ukraine) read everything here, heard opinions and deleted the post on facebook with this vote.
Too late. Damage is done.
Why you are so obsseed with the poll? It ridiculous how you keep bitching about it and what damage are you taking about? That your precious Belgium is not winning silly voting? haha!! It will flop anyway in May, Finland or Estonia gonna win! Lmao! Belgium fans even worse than spanish ones….lol
Finland or Estonia… LOL, no.
It’s silly if it gets deleted, he can post what ever he wants, haters gonna hate anyway…. they been bitching about Italy in previous poll as well….lol
About Melovin leading the poll, it’s not very fair to share the poll with his fans but I get it if he felt like he could use some support after the broadcaster drama. Also, as far as I understand he’s not back by a giant label that promotes his song. I guess a little motivation would do good for him.
But still it’s not cool. I hope we could have polls based on only organic reactions but we never had those. It would only make sense if every single artist shares the poll in their fan pages.
‘organic reactions’… what it even means? lol here is the same few hundred regular readers from the same countries,these polls are silly fun, nothing more lol
I mean people who are here in their own right. Also don’t underestimate Wiwi regulars. It says the world’s most read independent Eurovision web site and it’s probably true. The readers here reflect wider demographics than on any other web site. Of course, it can’t give 100% accuracy but it might give a good estimate of the real results, if no one messes with the poll.
Spain and Italy fans messing with the polls regularly, so what? these polls are always is fanwanking, why take it so serious anyway?
These poll would give us accuracy if we couldn’t vote for our own country, like in Eurovision.
That would make much more sense but it would be very difficult to implement that.
It woudnt be accuracy anyway, i think not much readers from east eropenian countries are here
They could come up with a different voting scheme for that too but let’s face it, it’s not going to happen.
I also see people from East Europe here in comments section. They are here.
Moldova – ice cream guilty pleasure
Spain – the wedding cake
France – the sea food that only the doctor tells you should eat
Italy – just beer
Estonia – broccoli
Hungary – something very spicey
Portugal – water with lemon (always on diet)
The Nederlands – fries
The Netherlands – fries
oh this is so cool! :))
can you keep on with rest of the entries?
Cyprus – hot chocolate
If I have other idea I will write it, but I really hope more persons will add their ideas. I can’t wait to hear what everybody has to write.
i’ll go with drinks:
Iceland – ice tea
Ukraine – burning sambuca
Finland – coca cola
Czechia – milk shake
Poland – mohito
Belgium – vodka martini (Bond drink)
Estonia – champagne
Germany – orange juice (he has great hair)
Cypros – givania (Like raki)
Greece – morning with tea and honey
Malta – with that panther from the staging, the singer will become the food
Hungary- ”something very spicy”- like goulash? ::)
Croatia- pinot noir
Slovenia- red bull
Ha Ha yes Hungary likes spice and salt
UK – canned food…for the storm
Finland – grapes served on a plate by her staff
It’s interesting to notice that the top 10 songs on this poll are all either from Semi 1, or from the Big 5 (except for Poland). It’s really sad that some great songs from Semi 1 will fail to qualify and some weak ones from Semi 2 will be in the final.
Semi 1 is weak or boring as hell
I bet the winner will be from Semi 1 or a Big 5. Mark my words 😉
Why so many trolls and angry people here? you have nothing to do guys?,uhh!
UK entry is so dull,my fav is France and Portugal for now, but i like many songs this year, and hate just few ,lol
Replying to the earlier comments saying that Ukraine is at the moment first in the poll just because it is a nice song and people like it:
MELOVIN SHARED THIS POLL ON FACEBOOK.
So, dear teenage Ukrainan girls disguising as grown-up westeners, please, do eat your words. Merci beaucoup.
P.S: Get some English courses. You’ll need it next time you’ll decide typing a comment.
wow! you ‘re so arrogant ….call people disgusting you crossed the line here, dude…and why if you’re so grown up you being so angry with silly poll that has no real effect on how people gonna vote in May
p.s.(for moderators ) is it allowed to posting hateful comments here?
haha! you’re such a troll, love it:))
don’t waste your time he/she posting this nonsense and bitching about it all day/night long lmao!
Dick, love ya back.
I wish I was posting non-sense. At least I would be as happy as the fan-talkers here… Tough life huh?
Read: DISGUISING. Not DISGUSTING.
I guess you need English courses too.
#Y tho? funny when people don’t see the trolling lol why you’re so bitter anyway?
It’s probably because of the Negroni I had before dinner.
oh reeeally! how could i mixed it up? ouch! lol
my English is so soooooo bad ,maybe you can give me a few lessons? lmao!
p.s. moderators just replied me and said that i can use hateful comments as much as i want …thank you guys:)
how could I have mixed*
I am a moderator for wiwibloggs.com.
No, it is not acceptable to use this language/ Please end this feud in a calm and respectable manor.
Come on!!) He has only 140 likes and 11 comments))))) This voice means nothing)) In addition, it seems that he is the only one at Eurovision without a contract with the record company. Young singer. So calm down)
Let’s see how fabulously Melovin will win in May.
Nope.You’re russian, right?
No. I’m Kekistani.
lmao! it would explain a lot
oh god you’re hopeless…lol of course it will not win but your ‘fabulous’ Albania will flop even harder ahaha!
On va voir ça, mon amie.
I was trolling the Spanish fans earlier on. But nobody takes my trolling seriously. They all think I have a hate problem for a specific country.
*sad reactions only*
So what? you’re being ridiculous…
i hate all songs this year btw lol
Sorry I’m not PC. Not sorry.
#Y tho? how old are you,twelve? making fuss about such a thing that has zero impact on real voting anyway is stupid, or maybe you’re just a regular homophobe?
SaaraFan Melovin gay? I’m not sure. Maybe he’s a metrosexual.
metrosexual? Do people still use this word ? lmao!
my gaydar never get me wrong , the guy is queer,though he is too sweet for me, i would pick hot daddy Waylon any day.lol
Dick omg. I use, tell me a synonym.
*Fabulous* of course lmao!
I’m 27. And gay. And where did you see homophobia in my comments? Or is it a standard accusation nowadays when one has no arguments to offer?
OMG, I eat gluten. What a cis-gendered pig! How do I even dare…
Please don’t be rude. It’s not necessary my fellow countryman. Yes, we all know Melovin shared this poll and therefore his 1st place is not that realistic. Let them win this poll if they want it that badly. Just ignore it…
oh god another bitter fan, lmao!
Belgium fans are the funniest :)))
Not being rude. Just being frank and straightforward here without using any filters. (Some people here might get triggered that I used the word “straight”. Lol). It’s not my fault we live in a very politically correct world nowadays.
P.S: Before anybody else starts calling me a homophobe, take into consideration I am gay. But not the gaga type who like to identify as a Saara’s monster. 🙂
you being stupid and childish bitter fan not ‘frank and straightforward’ ….
Fan of what? I am not orgasming over an entry (read: Finland, Ukraine, Estonia, Spain) this year. I just stated my opinion on Belgium and Albania, and I gave a couple of arguments. That’s it.
Are you feeling hurt because I am trolling Ukraine’s voters? That’s not being childish my dear… Bitter maybe .-.
Are you like those “masc” gays that wear pink undies but act like they don’t, even though they do show when bending?
I am a masc gay, but unfortunately my undies are of a very boring grey colour 🙁
Thanks for letting us know the colour of your underwear Y tho?
Always wanted to know.
Your own English could use some work. That postscriptum is a hot grammatical mess.
Oh Dauym. Sass police here.
Belgium might pull a Salvador and win the contest altogether though. Sennek can play the “so much different from the others” card. And it is not ESC-generic material neither (like Finland, *pukes*).
But anyways I’m not allowed to vote for my own country, so I am rooting for Albania ever since. Out of this year’s mediocre bunch, it is the only song that musically makes sense. Has a clear & stuctured melody, mind-boggling chorus and amazing live vocals. Will be a jury winner for sure.
Thanks for the support for Albania! Hope you vote for us 🙂
Albania will be the dark horse.
Waiting for the revamped version.
Margaret – In My Cabana <3
oh i love how queer artists are on the top 2, i like them both:)
voted also for Italy and France
I voted for Greece (my absolute winner so far!), Denmark, Belgium, Estonia, France, Hungary (I’m a metal lover, yes!) and the Netherlands. By the way, I didn’t vote for Ukraine in this poll just because I think it’s not fair to vote for my country. Love, love, peace, peace to everybody)))
Alfred please a little bit respect for our Belgian fashion designer Veronique Branqhuino …. She is from my fashion city Antwerp
Thank you 😀
The bookies are underestimating Ukraine.It will be really high because: first, it is ukraine and second they are working with Evgeniy Filatov to polish the details and revamp it a bit.
top 9 from portugal (I didn’t include portugal but it def is in top 10 so I saved 1 spot)
8. cyprus (basic trash but I like trash anyways)
Some folks here are taking these silly pols too serious …lol
it’s just for fun not for war…lets enjoy the ride and ‘celebrate diversity ‘ with respect to all artists and to all countries
love and peace:))
btw is it true that cute ukie guy who looks like creepy Timothée Chalamet has a glass eye? i read it on comments below….oh my
No, his eye is Ok, it’s just a contact lense. That’s how he looks without a lense: https://kp.ua/culture/567982-MELOVIN-moi-hlavnyi-amulet-tatuyrovky
No, his eye is OK, it’s just a contact lense, a part of his image. There are many photos and videos in the Internet where he is without any lense. Personally I think that he looks much more handsome and warm when he is without this scary lense, but it’s his choice, I respect it. With a lense he is ” beauty and the beast” at the same time =)
oh thanks, so people basically just made it up about his glass eye, lmao!
i think he looks gorgeous anyway, he gives me vamp/anime vibes, nice:))
The Timothee Chalamet comparison I thought I was the only one who saw it thanks:))
His real eye is that Kostya is what he is, and the one that has his creative side. This image is a metaphor showing in one person his real, simple and creative side.
Can you guys remember when there only about 4 songs chosen? Albania, France, Spain & Switzerland if I’m not mistaking. Now there’s a whole list of entries. Time passed by soooo quickly… o.O
Majority of songs presented so far – sooooo average . Nothing really stands out.
1 Ukraine 2.czech republic 3. France
Really like this artists and songs
Change the Czech Republic for Ukraine and I agree 100% :)))
Yet awaiting for Benjamin ingrosso to take the lead.
1) Bulgaria (if it’s really as good as they’re saying)
2) Finland (based on what Saara is capable of & the quality of the song)
3) Czech Republic (it sounds incredibly fresh & fun)
4) Hungary (Something different & passionate)
5) Estonia (An amazing performer with an elegant composition)
How can you put a song that you haven’t heard yet at the top of your list? This just makes no sense whatsoever.
To round out the top 5 of ones we haven’t heard, 6) Greece, but if BG isn’t good, the others up 1 place each
How a singer without a career is capable of something? The song it stands out next to big dance ladies like Cyprus, Croatia, Azerbaijan
3 CROATIA (PLEASE LISTEN THIS AND STOP TO LOOK THE CHEAP FINLAND BLA BLA BLA)
TOP 5 (from Portugal)
1 Estonia (that was amazing)
2 Greece (I’m in love with that song)
I know that a lot of people are saying that this year is weak, but imo this is the best year so far in music genres.
My favourites so far are Ukraine, Poland, France, Switzerland and Romania!
For me only CYPRUS POLAND ESTONIA
