12 Polls of Christmas

This year at wiwibloggs, we are celebrating the festive season with a series of different polls. For the next few days, we’re going to stuff your stockings with a selection of end-of-decade Eurovision votes. Consider this a unique riff on the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas” carol.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can join us and let us know your thoughts for each and every poll.

Eurovision televote winners: 2010 to 2019

The scoring system has changed over the 60-year history of the contest. From pure juries to pure televote to a mixture of both. While the 2010s saw many minor tweaks to the system, it was the first decade in which a 50/50 system was maintained consistently.

We’ll take a look at the favourite entry of the public from each year. At the beginning of the decade there was juries and televoters were typically in agreement. However, there have been years in which the opinions diverged and the public’s favourite didn’t go on to win the contest.

Watch the ten televote winners of the 2010s below and decide which is your favourite. You can vote for as many songs as you like, but you can only vote once — so make it count!

Eurovision 2010: Germany’s Lena with “Satelite”

The lightheartedness of Germany’s Lena impressed both juries and viewers at home. An undisputed victory with both groups meant the contest would come back to Germany for the first time since 1983. Lena’s victory in the televote was quite comfortable with a margin of over 60 points ahead of runner-up Turkey.

Eurovision 2011: Azerbaijan’s  Ell & Nikki with “Running Scared”

The land of fire delivered a touching performance. And, of course, lots of pyros. But Azerbaijan’s first win wasn’t as comfortable as Lena’s the previous year. Ell & Nikki’s emotional duet achieved an impressive 223 televote points, just two ahead of Sweden’s Eric Saade. However, this score was crucial to their overall victory as Italy was the jury favourite.

Eurovision 2012: Sweden’s Loreen with “Euphoria”

Besides bringing snow to the land of fire, Loreen was the first Swedish victory of this decade. Her mesmerising performance of an upbeat-hit found praise with both juries and televoters. Viewers were sent in an alternative universe by her physical and mysterious performance. All in all, she became one of the most iconic winners of all time.

Eurovision 2013: Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest with “Only Teardrops”

The distance between Malmö and Copenhagen, the host cities of 2013 and 2014, is closer than the televote result of the 2013 edition. Emmelie de Forest won the contest with an upbeat-ethno pop song, complete with drums and a flute. The EBU may have never published the split result, but the average televote result was a 4.97. This indicates a clear win and Emmelie managed to top the jury vote as well.

Eurovision 2014: Austria’s Conchita Wurst with “Rise Like A Phoenix”

Conchita Wurst’s victory in 2014 was a victory for social progress in troubled times. Her message of unity and respect went far beyond European borders. The rest of the field couldn’t come close to the televoting score for “Rise Like a Phoenix”. Austria topped the televote (as well as the jury vote) with almost 90 points more than second place.

Eurovision 2015: Italy’s Il Volo with “Grande Amore”

Eurovision 2015 was a year of firsts for the contest. Australia competed for the first time and for the first time ever the televote favourite didn’t win the contest. Italy’s operatic pop trio Il Volo delivered a multitude of goosebumps moments. But the massive televote score (80 more than Russia, 87 more than Sweden) wasn’t enough to make up for their jury result.

Eurovision 2016: Russia’s Sergey Lazarev with “You Are The Only One”

Eurovision 2016, the second hosted in Sweden this decade, saw a similar result to Vienna. This time the public’s favourite was Russia’s Sergey Lazarev. But he also failed to secure victory. His performance combined his endless talent with exceptional technology that made him a part of the stage. Thanks to the revised voting system, he was, at least, announced as the televote winner during the show.

Eurovision 2017: Portugal’s Salvador Sobral with “Amar Pelos Dois”

Similar to his song,  Salvador Sobral’s victory was simpler and without discussions. An almost 40 points lead with the televote formed the foundation for Portugal’s first-ever victory. In times in which everyone raised their voice, Salvador’s soft and silent song made everyone listen to him. His intimate performance is one of the standout moments of the 2010s.

Eurovision 2018: Israel’s Netta with “Toy”

The 2018  televote winner was again the overall winner. Netta was declared as favourite early on and managed to take the trophy home to Israel. Her duel with Eleni Fouerra was iconic. However, her televote victory turned out pretty comfortable with a lead of over 60 points. Her totally crazy performance fitted perfectly with her quirky song.

Eurovision 2019: Norway’s KEiiNO “Spirit in the Sky”

Up to 2019, the televote winner had always finished inside the top three on the scoreboard. And then there was KEiiNO. The Norwegian power-group sang and joiked their way all the way to the first place in the televoting, but were let down by the juries. In the end, the Nordic trio finished in sixth place.

Poll: What is your favourite Eurovision televote winner of the 2010s?

Since not long ago we had posts reviewing the top 3 from each of the last 10 years, let me take the opportunity to say how happy I was with KEiiNO’s performance in Tel Aviv. I always thought it was a charming, fun and unpretentious song, even if I was rooting for Morland to represent Norway again. “Spirit in the Sky” has been called a fanwank, many people said it would flop, but it was clear to me there was an audience for that. It was just the matter of building up the chemistry between those 3 very interesting people.… Read more »

2011 was not a very strong year to begin with. Only a few songs were really good, but were mostly either too outside a box for juries or not big televote magnets. Azerbaijan nailed the staging and the song sounded pleasant and cozy. Was it a winning song? Not really. However, there were many, many weaker options in the slot.

Euphoria, Grande Amore, Spirit in the Sky – Sounds just about right. 🙂
None of these songs are sub-par, though. I don’t think all of them were in my top 10, but all of them were in my upper half of their respective year. Mostly in top 15 at least.
Grande Amore was my 2nd in especially great 2015.
Spirit in the Sky was my 5th last year.
Euphoria was my 5th in 2012.
Yeah, these 3 are phenomenal. 🙂

I hate to sound like a smart-arse here but in Dusseldorf 2011, Eric Saade technically won televoting if you subtract San Marino’s jury points which were also counted on the split televote results.

1) Sweden – 215 pts
2) Azerbaijan – 213 pts
3=) Greece & Ukraine – 168 pts
5) UK – 164 pts

Amar Pelos Dois wouldn’t bother me if Salvador didn’t had this weird way of presentation where he has all of those ticks and weird movements like he’s mimicking an autistic person. Like, what is this sh!t show? Can’t you just stand still and sing? Why you need that cheap acting as if you’re “so sensitive and vulnerable”. Where was this sensitivity when you held the trophy and told all of your colleagues in their face that their music is trash?

I loved Satellite but Amar Pelos Dois is the most boring piece of sh*t ever, the worst winner of all time and the worst song in 2017. It won only because it was different.
Those portugese people on Wiwibloggs should stop voting for their own country in polls (this the only reason it’s now 4th in this poll)

Running Scared as 2011 televote winner is a joke

Robyn Gallagher

2011 was a weird year. There was no one stand-out song that sucked up points from both juries and televoters. Instead there were a lot of quite good songs that split the voting, some jury favourites, some televote faves. Look at where the 12 points went – Bosnia and Herzegovina got the most (5), Italy got 4, while five countries got 3 lots of 12s (incl Azerbaijan). Compare with the following year when “Euphoria” got 18 lots of 12 points!

There were no good songs that year. The winner and the runner up are jokes that reflect the general quality. Poor Germans put so much effort in that production just to end up hosting the weakest edition of the decade.

Many countries put an effort and money to promote their songs for ESC. Cyprus’s video of 2018 probably cost at least twice as the one of “Toy” (the whole thing was planned in 4 days and shot in one single set). Yet when Fuego came out people were like “oh, cool”, but went nuts when they saw Toy. So don’t talk about how it was “promoted” as if only Israel promoted its entry that year. What a joke

And about the #metoo message. Clearly if you put a song like “you’re the only one” in your top 3 you are not a person who cares much about lyrics. Toy with all of its odd lyrics at least did have a message more than “love me, love you, you’re my love, big big love, huge ass love”.

People loved how corny Spirit In The Sky is. I mean, as a song it’s not good at all. Their voices don’t blend very well, the “yodelling” is stuck in the middle of this outdated dance track like a bone in the throat. Just a trash entry that I’m glad judges killed.
Don’t forget people voted Serhat to be in the top 10 position. ESC fans starting to crave pure trash again, like in the earlier 2000s and it won’t be good if the contest will head this direction.

YouTube accidentally recommended Euphoria to me and I was immediately impressed after watching Loreen slay the stage in Baku. This opened me to the amazing world of Eurovision when I was still a freshmen college student. Among the televote winners above, her entry for me is the most timeless. I remember a commenter saying that if she entered the contest every year, it would not be a surprise if she also wins Eurovision annually. Some may disagree with these claims but no one can deny the fact that Loreen and Euphoria is clearly a decade-defining duo and will be loved… Read more »

Random thoughts: 2010- I am Turkish, yet I think Germany totally deserved it over Manga (though Manga was close). Lena was phenomenal for me. Great lyrics, catchy melody, relatable singer. Fantastic start to the decade. 2011- While my faves were Bosnia, Slovenia and Denmark, the moment I watched the Azeris, I wrote my German friend “winner”. I think the Azeri win is a bit underrated. It was neither a great song, nor great staging, nor exceptional singers, but as a package, it worked. 2012. Everyone loves it, except me, so I learned to accept it. 2013.

Only Teardrops was a safe winner. Plus the popularity it gained before the contest helped. Her song even played in Albania before the contest took place, which almost never happens. Only Greece 2005 and Azerbaijan 2011 had achieved that before.

It’s interesting that I as a vocal televote supporter can’t find all too many televote winners that I personally fancy. Of course, the same goes for jury vote winners. In 2013, I never thought I’d say this in almost 2020, but my general picks are Euphoria and Only Teardrops. Performance-wise, my pick is Grande Amore. And song-wise, ONLY song-wise, my pick would be Rise like a Phoenix. So really, I have no clear overall winner, I only have clear winners for different aspects.

Rise like a Phoenix has by far the best lyrics out of these televote winners, in my opinion. Especially its verses are great.
