Eurovision 2020 Favourite Act so Far

Fandoms often have unique names that distinguish them from the rest. While us Eurovision Song Contest fans often call ourselves Eurofans, sometimes one fandom for all of us just doesn’t suffice.

So, this writer came up with a fandom name for each of the Eurovision 2020 participants selected so far.

Note, they’re not all original. Some of them have already been circulating on Twitter and other social networks.

Eurovision 2020 fandom names

Albania’s Arilena Ara — Arilenators.

The “Shaj” songstress has amassed quite some support since her song came out in December. Her fans are the Arilenators, of course, borrowed from Ariana Grande’s “Arianators”. Seeing as she has finished in the top two in all of our recent polls, she appears to have quite a lot of Arilenators!

Armenia’s Athena Manoukian — Athenians

Athena Manoukian’s “Chains on You” was met with a lukewarm response within the fandom. But Athena does have fans out there, who we like to call Athenians — the demonym for Athens. Following Netta’s footsteps, how about we also call them Manouki-nekos?

Australia’s Montaigne — Montaigneers

Australia’s Montaigne also emerged as a fan favourite in the run-up to Australia Decides. If she still has your support, you’re a Montaigneer — a mix of the words Montaigne and Mountaineer. You also suggested we call them Mr. Mimes, after the Pokémon whose picture Montaigne tweeted before the Australian national final.

Belgium’s Hooverphonic — Hooverphoniacs

Fans of Hooverphonic are Hooverphoniacs (this one’s pretty self-explanatory).

Czech Republic’s Benny Cristo — Cristians or Kemamen

Czech Republic’s Benny Cristo has many Cristians… though former Czech head of delegation Jan Bors suggests we call a fan of “Kemama” a Kemaman (plural Kemamen?) instead.

France’s Tom Leeb — Leebchens

France’s fans are Leebchens (Tom Leeb + Liebchen, a term of endearment).

Italy’s Diodato — Noisemakers

Fans of Italy’s Diodato and “Fai Rumore” (Make Noise) are the Noisemakers

Latvia’s Samanta Tīna — Composers or Tīn-men

As for Latvia’s fandom name, most of you already identify as a Composer – borrowed from the line “life is music; I am a composer”. We had a different idea in mind – a Tīn-man (made up from tin-man and Samanta Tīna)

Lithuania’s The Roop — The Groop or Groopies/Roopies

We like to call Lithuania fans — of which there are plenty — members of THE GROOP. It has also been suggested that they go by “groopies” or “roopies“.

Norway’s Ulrikke — Attention Seekers

Those who dig Ulrikke’s song for Norway are Attention Seekers… no shade intended.

Poland’s Alicja Szemplińska — Emperors

Those of you who support Poland’s entry “Empires” are, of course, Emperors

Slovenia’s Ana Soklič — Water Wizards

“Voda” voters are Water Wizards (yes, we love alliteration).

Spain’s Blas Cantó — Cantors

We also call fans of Blas Cantó Cantors (for lack of a better pun).

Ukraine’s Go_A — Go_A Team or The Church of Solovey

Ukraine has a group name rather than a demonym — we call them the Go-A Team. That’s a mix of the phrases “Go Team!” and “The A-Team”. However, Go_A fans actually seem to prefer the name Church of Solovey.

 

Which name is your favourite? Which sub-fandom are you in? Do you have any better suggestions for group names? Let us know in the comments below!

I am not surprised that Cantor is a name for fans of blas Cantó because I’ve always made the joke that his name is the past singular conjugation of he/she sang in Spanish.

As someone who is Jewish and has a sister training as a cantor herself, I also found it amusing on another level because the word Cantor in Judaism refers to a religious singer who leads the music at the synagogue

I declare myself a mercenary, I couldn’t belong to a single team. The ROOP colonized my brain and now I can’t spot a single day when I’m not humming to On Fire. I just adore Montaigne’s song, it gives me goosebumps and I want her to do amazingly. As for Go-A, Solovey brings the quality and uniqueness to Rotterdam. Finally, I have tender feelings for Arilena because she has the best ballad so far -and she was the very first ESC act (artist & song) to be known.

I’m still in the Hatari fandom. I’m not sure why or how this even happened, but the Hatari fandom calls itself “the clown squad”. I’m not sure why but that’s what we are.

It won’t be easy. The fandom has been calling itself this for months xD …I don’t think the actual band had any input at all. I’m not sure if they even know we call ourselves the clown squad.

“Haters” would probably make more sense but….it’s too late we’re stuck at clown squad now.

A better name for Norway fans would be “Slaying Attention”, a play on words for Paying Attention, but slaying is obvious what Ulrikke is doing with her performance!

It really annoys me that the Arilenators are constantly voting for her in all of the Wiwibloggs polls even though she clearly has a very inferior song. I also don’t care how much the Arilenators are going to downvote my comment. She never should have won Festivali i Kenges over Me Tana in the first place and I still don’t understand why she won.

I guess I’m a Hooverphoniac this year, but only because I was a fan of theirs before their album “Looking for Stars” and before Eurovision. So I’m more of “A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular” Hooverphoniac xD
