From Jedward to Elina & Stig to Ilinca & Alex, duos have the power to become fast fan favourites — and to climb that Eurovision scoreboard. This year seven duos will shine bright on the Eurovision Song Contest stage. Besides having a great song, they’ll need to preserve harmony — both in terms of the music and in terms of staging and presence. It’s never cute if one person hogs the spotlight.
Back in March, we asked you to name your favourite duo, and y’all certainly wanted your opinion to be heard, casting a total of 6,589 votes.
All of Spain was taken by their real-life love story. And now Alfred & Amaia — aka Almaia — have won over our readers too. Their touching ballad “Tu canción” picked up 1,554 votes or 23.58% of all votes cast. Their sincere emotions make us feel special and restore our faith in love once more.
Coming in second place is France’s Madame Monsieur. Inspired by the story of a child born on board an SOS Mediterranean rescue boat, “Mercy” tells a harrowing and humanitarian story while accompanied by modern electro production. The tale clearly moved you guys, as 1,315 (19.96% ) of you sent votes their way. The French duo are also the highest ranked of these seven acts with the bookies.
Italy’s Ermal Meta & Fabrizo Moro take bronze. “Non Mi Avete Fatto Niente” might sound dark in description, but the song has a warm, tender quality that comes with the unique, boho flair of its two singers. They managed to grab 1,163 votes or 17,65% of all votes cast.
FYR Macedonia is the only other pairing to pass the 1,000 votes mark, while Poland rounds out the top five.
