Last year, it was Melovin with “Under The Ladder”.  Two years ago, it was Blanche with “City Lights”. And in 2016 it was Iveta Mukuchyan with “LoveWave”. Once again, the time has come to ask our readers to cast their votes for the best music video of Eurovision 2019. You’ll need to take into account the cinematography, originality, acting, and overall awesomeness of this year’s videos. So who should win?

A colourful jungle. A mysterious portrait. A dance party on the streets. A fetus getting to life. And a 1920s style dance party. This year’s videos are as diverse as the songs, which makes us exciting to see which one is your favourite!

Please note that neither the videos of the live performances nor the lyric videos are eligible for our poll — just the official music videos that the artists have produced outside of their selections. And, as is the case every year, there isn’t an official music video for every entry. Some may still be in production and will be released after the poll is published, but don’t fret: we will add them to the count as soon as they’re released officially.

It’s now in your hands to vote for the best music video in the poll below. In order to make sure you don’t miss anything, let’s revisit the contenders in the playlist below! This poll closes just ahead of the first rehearsals in May. It’s up to you, Europe. Start voting now!

Albania: Jonida Maliqi – “Ktheju tokës”

Armenia: Srbuk – “Walking Out”

Austria: Paenda – “Limits”

Azerbaijan: Chingiz – “Truth”

Belgium: Eliot – “Wake Up”

Croatia: Roko – “The Dream”

Cyprus: Tamta – “Replay”

Czech Republic: Lake Malawi – “Friend of a Friend”

France: Bilal Hassani – “Roi”

Georgia: Oto Nemsadze – “Keep on Going”

Greece: Katerine Duska – “Better Love”

Hungary: Joci Pápai – “Az én apám”

Iceland: Hatari – “Hatrið mun sigra”

Ireland: Sarah McTernan – “22”

Israel: Kobi Marimi – “Home”

Italy: Mahmood – “Soldi”

Malta: Michela – “Chameleon”

Moldova: Anna Odobescu – “Stay”

Montenegro: D mol – “Heaven”

Netherlands: Duncan Laurence – “Arcade”

North Macedonia: Tamara Todevska – “Proud”

Norway: KEiiNO – “Spirit in the Sky”

Poland: Tulia – “Fire of Love (Pali się)”

Romania: Ester Peony – “On a Sunday”

Russia: Sergey Lazarev – “Scream”

San Marino: Serhat – “Say Na Na Na”

Serbia: Nevena Bozovic – “Kruna”

Slovenia: Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl – “Sebi”

Spain: Miki – “La Venda”

Switzerland: Luca Hänni – “She Got Me”

Remember, this is not about the singer nor the song, but about the best music video. You need to consider the cinematography, the story, the visual concept, the execution and production values, as well as the artists’ acting abilities. So who will it be?

You can vote for as many videos as you like, but you can only vote ONCE, so be sure to click the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit. We’ll close this poll ahead of the first rehearsals in May, when we will announce who, in your opinion, has the best music video this year.

Let’s do this!

After you cast your vote, you can defend your choice in the comments box below!

Denmark, Estonia and Finland have official music videos too, though they have chosen their live performances as preview videos instead. Still the music videos exist and should be added to the list to vote for!

Most are surprisingly very good this year! A lot of artful, symbolic and beautiful imagery. You can also add Estonia to the list. For some reason they decided to upload the performance as the ”official video”, but official video exists from Eesti Laul. A notable shout-out to Michael Rice and The UK! What a beautiful video! I cannot believe they listened to my advice and gave the song a context! Best UK ESC video ever! Now I like it even more. 🙂 Videos I really love (in random order): – The Netherlands – Italy – United Kingdom – Czech Republic… Read more »

Sad there is only one option. I voted for Oto’s music video bcs it reflects perfecly every line of the lyrics and looks really powerful, but I also should mention: 2. KEiiNO, bcs I highly appreciate their mv was inspired by a retro movie which was made in my country. 3. Lake Malawi, really creative. 4. Roko, bcs of his great acting, he managed to portray all the emotions too real, I felt them through my screen. 5. Sergey, kudos for using fantasy theme and THAT lantern omg. 6. Hatari, probably the most complicated video of those which make sence.… Read more »

Nothing special with the Dutch video at all…we only see him. Ukraina is out of the contest. But their video is GREAT! Sexy. My favourites: Cez. Rep, Malta, Azerbaijan etc

Belgium, Italy and Iceland for me.
Belgium – so personal and real
Italy – the scenes in the back of the car are heartbreaking
Iceland – love the industrial imagery
But, I have to agree that across the board there is a lot of high quality.

I voted for Czech Republic ??. But it should be much higher. It is very original. And The Netherlands is on the top because for the song. I also want to say that Malta and Azerbaijan have also very good music videos, and I would vote for they if I could.

I understand that a lot of people hate Georgia, and while I get that you can’t really appreciate the song without knowing the lyrics, the video was amazing. Sure there are other great ones like Russia, Slovenia, and Armenia, but y’all are really sleeping on Georgia

I hate you guys. Why can’t I choose 2 options? It’s just so difficult to decide between a naked hot guy and a feminist video with a huge message.
Still chose Armenia, as the Netherlands was definitely going to be first anyways

@hello the video is very symbolic, you can see the relation with his father, the pain to became adult living with the pain of the abandonment and the rage towards his father, the mother figure, the feeling of a child that feels alone while his parents are fighting, and he feels alone even now that he’s an adult, the tatoo that symbolize the bond with the father -who has the same tattoo in the hand- that can’t be erased even though he gave pain to him and his mother, but he put the tattoo in his back because he wants… Read more »

Greece or Romania, to be honest. A lot of effort went into those videos.
Also I like the subtleties provided by Belgium and Austria – I’m not just saying that to annoy Polegend; I really do actually like those concepts. And also: Armenia. So underrated.

Rimig
Guest
Rimig

Totally agree! Greece and Romania are among the best imo

Polegend Godgarina

romania’s music video is actually amazing. greece’s is also excellent.

the worst have to be belgium (the lighting is tragic, they managed to make a cute lil twink like eliot look like a mess), and austria (literally just paenda in front of a green screen with the same face for three minutes).

I like the videos of Azerbaijan, Czechia, San Marino and Ireland but none of the songs are among my faves (maybe a bit except for Ireland, San Marino and Azerbaijan). On my favourite topic – Romania – I only like Ester’s performing skills with just one exception (longing stare and eye-rolling at the beginning of the video, too school-girlish along the lines “you left me that day in September”). Had I not heard someone explaining the concept of the video, I would have not understood the story at all. Haunted house, guardian dog, jelly fish, upside water, mirrors, crazy scary… Read more »

What I find interesting is that last year we had 39 music videos, and this year only 30. Nonetheless, here are the nominees for the Best Eurovision Music Video Award 2019: – Armenia – nice idea, and those black and red visuals are one of the best in this year’s edition – Azerbaijan – again, great aesthetics, more fairytale, fantasy, and it all done using one small room – Belgium – great use of light, coherent, simple, but effective. – Czech Republic – really creative and so hilarious – Greece – love costumes and choreography, and the shots’ compositions are… Read more »
