Even though English has been a dominant language on the Eurovision stage since the language rule change back in 1999, some countries still choose to dazzle us in their native language.

And this year is no exception. We have 11 countries that are singing their entire song or the majority of their song in a non-English language: Albania, France, Georgia, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia and Spain. 

We asked you to choose your favourite out of these 11 non-English songs of Eurovision 2019. And now we are revealing the results. After 6,980 votes it’s “Soldi” by Italy’s Mahmood that has come out on top. The Italian heartthrob won your hearts with 1,422 votes, or 20.37% of all those cast.

Italy’s win here was basically a landslide, as “Soldi” got a little over 500 more votes than second place finisher Conan Osíris from Portugal. His song “Telemóveis” secured second place with 900 votes, or nearly 13% of all those cast.

In third place it’s Iceland’s Hatari with “Hatrið mun sigra”. The leather-clad BDSM-themed group earned 867 votes, or 12.42% of the total.

Three other songs earned more than 10% of the vote. In fourth place comes Albania’s Jonida with “Ktheju Tokës” with 784 votes, or 11.2%. Then we have Slovenia’s Zala and Gasper with “Sebi” and Spain’s Miki with “La Venda”.

The final five songs earned between 1.07% to 6.75% of the votes, respectively.

Hopefully the quality of these options are an indicator that each year, we’ll get more and more non-english

He’s not stuck up; people think so but it’s not true, have you heard him speaking in interviews? He’s quite shy and very busy in this last period and so he could appear like that but it’s not ttue…Do you remember that he never talked bad about anybody? He defended also Ultimo ….
Listen to andy of eurovoxx, he said before the interview he did to mahmood in london he was very nervous thinking to meet a very important person but then he discovered a Mahmood very humble and friendly…

idk the general opinion here is that he’s very talented but he’s also known for not interacting with fans. maybe he’s shy maybe he thinks he’s beyoncé idk

Among the first things he said when he won sanremo, he mentioned that he’d have to improve his facial expressions/reactions and his presence on social media… He didn’t do either xD but he does make more Instagram stories. Definitely doesn’t sound like beyonce to me, more like constantly “on the clouds”
Ultimo seems more.like beyonce tbh xD

ultimo is the typical rough person from the outskirts of rome (ragazzo di borgata we say), he’s just poorly mannered

I don’t think so. He doesn’t interact in social media with fans but it’s difficult for him, he’s so busy…. And he said he doesn’t want to answer, in instagram or facebook, to some persons and not to others…. But he was very nice with people at the instores, and I saw the live (for example rairadio 2 and radio italia) and the concerts, he interacts a lot with the public. When he did a little concert just before sanremo, circolo ohibò in milan, aftrr the concert he went drinking a bier with the public… Also in interviews and the… Read more »

I think he’s a very nice guy and it’s clear to me he’s easily embarrassed and not completely comfortable in front of cameras or during interviews, bus he’s somehow “manipulated” by his producers/label as well. Just look at his latest collaboration, I have quite a few things to say about that… (Charlie Charles is overrated and don’t fight me on this)

Anyway, I think he’s a very nice guy, he’s easily embarrassed and he often looks clearly uncomfortable during interviews to me, which might come through as haughty maybe, but I think he’s being ‘manipulated’ by his label/producers as well.

And that’s because of Charlie and Dardust… Not much he could do about it I guess. Who I blame the most though is Fibra. That collaboration to me looked like a (very poor) answer to Takagi & Ketra feat Paradiso, Jovanotti and Calcutta. Neither to say, I stand on their side.
