Eurovision 2020 Favourite Act So Far

The dust is beginning to settle following this season’s first Super Saturday. Starting in Australia on Saturday morning and finishing in Italy in the early hours of Sunday, the amount of confirmed Eurovision 2020 acts doubled from three to six. Sandwiched in between was the Supernova final in Latvia.

But who is your favourite Eurovision 2020 act so far? Is Albania’s Arilena Ara set for a third week atop the poll? Or could the newcomers shake things up?

It’s time to vote!

You can listen to all three new entries below. Then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting ends early on Friday, 14 February — just ahead of selections in Armenia, Lithuania and Norway.

We will then relaunch the poll on Sunday to include the three winners, along with France’s internal selection and any other entries which may drop in the interim.

New Eurovision 2020 entries as of 9 February

Montaigne — “Don’t Break Me”

The second-ever edition of Eurovision — Australia Decides provided Europeans with a mid-morning musical treat on Saturday. In a field packed with talent, Montaigne emerged victorious with “Don’t Break Me” — beating Idol star Casey Donovan and “Absolutely Everybody” hitmaker Vanessa Amorosi to second and third place respectively. Montaigne’s staging has proven divisive, but her win has seen the Aussies shoot to the top of the betting odds.

Samanta Tīna — “Still Breathing”

They say god loves a trier. And it’s also true in Eurovision. Sweden has Sanna Nielsen, Estonia has Stig Rästa and now Lativa has Samanta Tīna. After three top podium finishes between 2012 and 2014, and two entries in 2016, Samanta finally won Latvia’s selection on Saturday. “Still Breathing” is penned by Aminata — the woman behind the country’s most successful recent entry “Love Injected”. She was also on the writing team for the Baltic nation’s last qualification — “Heartbeat” in 2016.

Diodato “Fai rumore”

For much of its five-day run, most of the attention was on Francesco Gabbani and Elodie. But a series of steady performances saw Diodato remain constantly near the top. And on Saturday he slipped in ahead of all the contenders to secure the Sanremo 2020 crown. And for once, we didn’t have to wonder whether the Festival winner would accept the Eurovision ticket or not. During the winners’ press conference, the “Fai rumore” crooner confirmed that he was Rotterdam-bound.

Who is your favourite Eurovision 2020 act so far? (9 February)

Which of the six is your favourite? Could any of them win the contest in May? Let us know in the comments.

Albania, Italy are both fabulous – Australian entry is going be super strong once they sort the staging – Spain is screwed ( which is a pity I had very high hopes )

Fans of Albania’s song: CALM DOWN! For the sake of your favorite song stop downvoting anyone who likes another song more. Your’re downvoting people not even for saying something bad about Arilena but just for saying something simple like that they like Australia’s song. You’re even downvoting people who like Albania’s song but don’t have it ranked first. Please stop the madness. This will only turn off people from liking your song

I mean this is what all the other countries do at Eurovision so what’s different about Albania. They’ve been patient for like 15 years I don’t blame them for being mad at you guys because they are doing the same thing people have been doing all along

just gave a proper second listening to DENMARK’s Ben and Tan ….. aaaand I must say it’s the first and only tiny tiny tiny winning vibes I’m getting to this day……. with the propper staging, the instruments, the audience…. they could really create that sort of “communion” you get with winning songs, to get people singing along together (Or fall flat like when I said the same thing for Madame Monsieur’s Mercy… it’s never even sure. ..) And then more classic would be Raylee’s show..IF and only if she manages a spotless Fuego choregraphy and vocals. we’ll see.

Too bad the only 3 songs that stuck to my mind (of all the national selections so far) are…….from the same county ! (Norway btw. Wild, Pray for me and attention.) Those are the only 3 I really remembered and replayed. Out of AAALL the ones we’ve heard so far. And that’s a lot. Starting to get worried for this year’s contest though. But I have faith in .. France, Germany, England, Greece, Ireland… who knows. High hopes. OH : and Belgium!!!!! Don’t forget Belgium. Hope they measure up to the expectations !

I’m not “super super” impressed by what we’ve heard in global so far. Quite boring and forgettable. Nothing revolutionary. I played several times Raylee, Kristin Husoy, and Moniqué but except for that …. not much I can hope I’ll still play several years from now.

Okay, I got behind in the whole nf/selections this weekend but after getting all caught up(so many songs put out this past week/weekend >_<) I think my favorite song at the moment(offical songs as my favorite is still in the selection phase) is Latvia's. I dunno why I like it so much but I do. Overall rankings are still shifting regularly and will drastically change as we get more so as and after revamps of course… but that said here's my top six atm after relistening to all the songs: 1. Latvia – love Samanta's attitude and confidence while performing,… Read more »

I don’t have a favourite right now, so I picked Albania, Australia and Italy.
Albania: song I find most pleasent and emotional (what i like) and expect a good revamp from
Australia: best studio cut, but live performance let me down a bit
Italy: gives me chills and has the best overall package for now
But I don’t think we heard the winner yet

I’ve totally stopped looking at the Wiwi polls, because they are every year the same and not reliable at all.
Everyone is hyping over Albania; Australia 2nd, probably just because it’s Australia because admit it: the staging was a mess and the song is just a regular pop song; Latvia getting more votes than Spain?

People, including the authors on Wiwibloggs have to be more critical and they shouldn’t find every entry that amazing.

I relistened all songs yesterday and my top 3 are: Australia, Czech Republic and Spain – not exactly in that oder, because I can’t decide which of these songs I like more, since I like each of them for different reason. I guess for now Australia is winning for me?
Also – I’m curious about the Czech and Albanian revamps.

Blas Canto does it for me. Good looking, nice song. Finally a good song from Spain. That lasted way too long! Pastora Soler was the last amazing entry. And that was 2012!!! If Blas can sing, which I don’t know yet, he can win this and take Eurovision to Spain!
Hope he nails it. Let’s hear it at Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam on April 4th! ?
Latvia has a good song too. A totally different thing, which I like.
Competition is coming if Anna’s Kingdom comes to Eurovision! ?
