The people have voted and hatred has prevailed. Iceland has been named Best Nordic Entry of Eurovision 2019 with Hatari’s “Hatrið mun sigra”. They have won the poll with 35.99% of votes, edging out Norway’s “Spirit in the Sky”, which came second with 30.28 % of given votes.

Best Nordic Entry: “Hatrið mun sigra” — Hatari

Hatari are serving up some BDSM-techno realness and are considered a dark horse to win Eurovision 2019. “Hatrið mun sigra” may be divisive but as the old adage goes, it’s not about who hates you but who loves you. Our readers were certainly feeling the love, awarding Hatari over a third of all votes cast.

The rest of the field

Norway and their song “Spirit in the Sky” gave Iceland a run for their money, also receiving over 30% of votes. The Norwegian entry combines pop with traditional Sami joik and is undoubtedly unique among all 41 entries.

It might be too late for love after all. Sweden finished a distant third, receiving almost 19% of the vote. Sweden are considered perennial favourites and 2019 is no exception. Our readers see a fair bit of space between Sweden and the top two.

There’s plenty of space between Sweden and the bottom two as well. Our readers think love might not be forever, awarding Denmark just 8.45% of the vote. Our readers are also looking away from Finland, who finished last in the poll with 6.36%.

Full results: Best Nordic Entry 2019

Whether or not these results will mirror the results at Eurovision will be determined in due course. With rehearsals only days away, the excitement is building in the lead up to Tel Aviv. Iceland and Finland will perform in the first semi-final while Denmark, Sweden and Norway will perform in the second semi-final.

I love Norway and Denmark. Denmark is definitely the most underrated song this year – it’s sweet, warm, melodious and has some great chord progression.

Tbh, it would’ve been a crime if ‘Hatrid mun sigra’ hadn’t topped the poll…
