wiwibloggs poll Best Postcard Eurovision 2018

The Eurovision 2017 postcards were literally all over the place. So ahead of Eurovision 2018, Portugal’s broadcaster RTP understandably opted for a clearer concept, which resulted in consistently fun and flawless postcards. Showcasing both the beauty of Portugal’s many landmarks as well as the Eurovision artists’ varied personalities, the 43 short clips that premiered during the three shows were almost as exciting to watch as the individual performances themselves. Now that the dust has settled on the contest, it’s time for you to decide who had the best postcard of Eurovision 2018!

It’s always fun to watch the singers act in these short videos, and Eurovision 2018 was no exception. From Waylon gingerly biting into a pastel de nata to AWS’s drummer biting into a huge piece of chocolate and from Jessica Mauboy learning to make a guitarra to Eleni Foureira learning to cook with a famous local chef, the Eurovision postcards were a feast for the eyes. Set against the backdrop of Portugal’s most beautiful places, from Lisbon to Porto and from Madeira to the Azores, all postcards ended with the artists taking a selfie with the hashtag All Aboard, the official slogan of Lisbon 2018.

Thanks to funds provided by Portugal’s tourism board, all the acts (apart from the Claudia Pascoal and Isaura, of course) were flown to film the short clips in different parts of the country, some as early as February. Stepping out of the same door in each clip, the acts got to take part in an activity or a challenge that showcased both the beautiful surroundings as well as their sparkling personality.

Some of the postcards have even sparked memes, like that of Sweden’s Benjamin Ingrosso, who did not shy away from sharing it on his social media. The meme, hinting at his low televote score, shows Benjy with the two other people in his postcard with the caption, “Me casually posing with all my voters.” Love him or hate him, you gotta admit that Sweden’s Justin Bieber has a sense of humour.

But forget about the most meme-orable postcard. It’s time to vote for the most memorable postcard of Eurovision 2018. Who had the best vistas? Who looked like they had the most fun? Who took the best selfie? In the end, which country had the best postcard? You can vote as many postcards as you wish, but you can only vote ONCE, so make it count!

But first, let’s revisit all the 43 postcards in the playlist below!

We will close the poll in two weeks’ time. At that point we will reveal who follows in the footsteps of Italy’s Francesco Gabbani from Eurovision 2017. After you cast your vote for the best postcard of Eurovision 2018, you can defend your choice in the comment box below. Also, please tell us what your thoughts are about this year’s clips compared to the previous years!

Some Ukrainians call Melovin the Ukrainian Prince. His video certaintly brought out that aspect of his personality, and well fitting for the stunning Portugees coastlines. A perfect short movie promoting the beautiful Portugal and keeping Melovin fans around the world happy. How can you not like a Prince on a white horse riding off in search of his princess:) Well done MELOVIN!

Being from Aveiro myself, I really appreciate Albania’s postcard because it captures the city’s essence so beautifully in just 40 seconds and Eugene was completely spontaneous. If all advertising would be so thorough and real, everyone would love it.

For me it is not about the song or staging, the refrain was simple, the English… But Mélovin is hot! On one hand mysterious, sexy, dark . On the other hand friendly in interviews, cute, smiling. His hair and his lips are so beautiful. I’m 21, male, bi and I simply want Mélovin being my boyfriend 🙂

For me, Czech Republic was the most fun to watch, with Mikolas being dragged by the Caretos at Podence. Also loved Leva in Caramulo trying to drive a vintage car and Franka and Elina enjoying Portuguese food. But for me the best one was the montage of behind the scenes, with all of them having fun and that touching moment at the end with Julia staring at the sea. I wish it won’t take another 50 years for Portugal to win again ?

I agree.
Czech Republic was the best. It showed some of the most original Carnival costumes worn in Portugal and very ancient traditions, plus Mikolas was having a lot of fun with them.
Much better than just sending singers walking on a forest… forests may be nice, but they exist all over the world, nothing unique to Portugal.

It’s just one obsessed Melovin troll-fan from Ukraine who uses a software to cast multiple votes. He’s trying to convince everyone that Melovin’s bottom placing was wrong and that he’s the winner after all. Misery beyond words!

In terms of places, I loved Sennek and Claudia showing us the beauty of Lisbon! I also loved Surie shooting her postcard in Azores I think.
In terms of activities, I loved Eleni cooking inside the market. In terms of who had most fun, Elina looked so excited trying to climb and Almaia were having a great time in the park.

Overall, Portugueuse did a great job showcasing the beauty of their country! We’seen some really wonderful places!

It’s horrifying to realize that Melovin has only one troll-fan in Ukraine who spams Wiwi with fake usernames and votes multiple times (50 votes per click) by using various softwares. That loser has even posted a video on his VK account in which he brags about making Melovin first in every Wiwi poll. His life must be so unbearably miserable, therefore not worth living!

Netta’s postcard was super cute and fun. She was doing her day job at a party with her voice box. UK at a tea plantation was a bit stereotypical but I did read somewhere that it was a Portuguese princess who introduced it first to the British so that was neat.

Eleni in Greek Interview was asked about the juries and the The Serbian/Australia thing (claims from Balkanika that delegations traded jury points) ” I was happy that Cyprus won the televoting in the semifinal and top2 in the final. For me that’s a real success I don’t care about juries and what 5 people think or what they have been told to vote I also saw some weird things but I don’t want to talk about it. About People Saying Cyprus was the real Winner ” I really liked Netta….she was sad when Israel was falling down by the bookmarkets… Read more »

The cheap copy of Beyonce not only got a pimp running order slot, but also got a little overrated.
She deserved to be top 5, but #2 is a bit too much (the same can be said about Netta).
Juries kinda evened out the running order mistakes and bias (and in a field where none of the songs really manages to stand out running order matters).

I am from Lisbon, Portugal. I have been to most places that were shown and they all have their beauty so I didn’t vote for best location.
Congrats to all delegations, nice job on the short clips. I picked Ukraine because I can’t forget that gorgeous white horse overlooking the Ocean. It was just too beautiful for words. Czech choice was really fun and creative, ancient tradition, in line with so many other European such as the Babugeri, chaushi, zezengorri, macinule, strohbar, etc. A French photographer did a beautiful series about it some years ago, very interesting

For me the most interesting are the ones that showed a bit of the local culture/way of life and actual interaction. So 1. Czech Republic (by far, it was so much fun!), 2. Cyprus, 3. France, 4. Armenia, 5. Australia (seemed a bit too staged), 6. Israel (especially because of the location where Netta was DJaying). All in all, althogh the concept is indeed a bit outdated, RTP did a really good job at it.

Why are you so nervous? His fan-base from different countries is more than 435 votes, and the postcard is really beautiful so people just like it. And by the way, his place by televote is the 7th, even in the overall standings it is 17th, may be we watched different eurovision)?

firstly who prevents you from using the voices of the fans. Secondly, how can a proxy server be used if votes for Ukraine are typed gradually? just in Ukraine is a very friendly people, namely, melovinators and if you come together, the Ukrainians can also turn mountains.

They did a great job with the postcards this year. My favorites were Australia, Azerbaijan (Aisel’s face when she’s boarding the balloon is so cute), Czechia (Micolas being “kidnapped” and then his dance), Ireland, Latvia, Slovenia (beautiful location) and Ukraine (another beautiful location and Mélovin looking cool as usual, now as the dark prince riding a white horse haha). Though Waylon was the lucky one, since he got all the pastéis de Belém for himself.
