We’re getting closer to the deadline for all the Eurovision 2020 entries to be decided, with many songs rolling out in the next few days. However, one complete set of entries we have is the Big Five. Spain, Italy, France, the UK and Germany have all gifted us their songs for Rotterdam. But which song do you like the best?

We go from uptempo pop bops, to romantic ballads in this collection. These were revealed through such events as an iconic music festival, a performance atop a famous landmark, and accidentally through a Czech radio station. No, really. But the big question is who has the best of these automatic qualifying songs?

You can listen to all five entries below, then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting ends early on Wednesday, 4th March.

France: Tom Leeb – “The Best in Me”

France gave us possibly the most extra reveal in all of Eurovision’s history this year, with Tom Leeb performing his heartfelt ballad on the actual Eiffel Tower. His track is penned by various writers, including contest legend Thomas G:Son, as well as last year’s Swedish competitor John Lundvik.

Germany: Ben Dolic – “Violent Thing”

When Germany dropped their entry “Violent Thing”, the reception for it was immense. They’ve come back from zero televote points last year to arguably having one of the best upbeat songs this year, which is sending fans wild on social media. Can The Voice of Germany alum Ben Dolic give them the perfect start to the decade again?

Italy: Diodato – “Fai Rumore”

Diodato will be hoping to do one better than his predecessor Mahmood, who was 2019’s runner-up. To take on the challenge, Italy has chosen a stunning ballad via Festival di Sanremo. The song couldn’t be much more of a contrast to “Soldi” if it tried, so will the change give them that extra push to win?

Spain: Blas Cantó – “Universo”

The first complete song out of the gates in 2020, “Universo” by Blas Cantó is an energetic burst of pop with fabulous vocals. The expensive-looking music video could possibly hint at equally epic staging to bring Spain back to the decent results of the 2012 or 2014 era.

United Kingdom: James Newman – “My Last Breath”

We got to first hear “My Last Breath” — the UK’s entry from Grammy-nominee James Newman — in a strange leak via Czech radio. The breezy track with a memorable hook speaks of giving everything you have for the person you love. Could this drastically improve the UK’s fortunes after a last-place finish in Tel Aviv?

Who is your favourite of the Big Five at Eurovision 2020?

Ranked by Ted 6 – Germany 5 – France 4 -UK 3 – Italy (2 – Netherlands) 1 – Spain Germany is my last place as I have had a painful experience watching a live vocal of this song hitting some notes and missing a few too and his stage presence not matching the song. France will slay the live performance but the song is dated. Italy have the Capaldi factor. I really hope the UK can bring some good staging this year but having seen the BBC release of a “live” version, he just lacks charisma. A half hearted… Read more »

I really can’t understand the hate for France’s entry ! I mean I’m French and trust me I have hated 80% of our entries from the last decade but I don’t mind this one ! It’s not a great song and we’re not gonna win that’s for sure but it’s not THAT bad no ? In my opinion it’s at least better than the kid who couldn’t sing that we send last year..

I’m from the UK and even I think our media has overhyped it. Everyone on radio 2 were saying it was the winner. Had they even heard any of the other songs.

Italy is my favorite of these. But I STILL feel like Italy had better options at Sanremo :-/

If I am honest though I am not exactly going wild for any of the big five songs.

Don’t like Germany either. My favourites are Italy and the UK. Very sorry about Blas Cantó, I think he is doing an important bet and he always wanted to go to Eurovision, but I do not really like Universo.

Italy, of course. Germany is a bit overrated in my opinion and the other three are quite bland…

UK and France will be very low this year, they’ll fight for the 26th place in the grand final… On the contrary, Germany and Spain will do better this year than in the previous years…. Italy will face moderate success, it will appeal only to the juries, I don’t see the televoters going crazy for another ballad (especially it’s not a masterpiece)…

As a track I can see why Germany would be the best, but I may as well voted for Best In Me if Violent Thing is above Italy’s magic song.

I agree that both Italy and Germany are very good songs. Together with Belgium and Slovenia they make up my current top 4 of the known entries. Spain and the UK are OK but i fear they will not get the result they might have achieved had they competed in the semi-finals as well. In the last few years i believe being one of the big five is more of a hindrance than a plus. France sent in a very good looking guy who can carry a tune. The song itself is mediocre but if staged well he might do… Read more »

I just saw all the known entries and both Italy and Germany made it to my top 4 (with Slovenia and Belgium) letting a huge number of entries well behind them. I’ve seen an acoustic live performance of the German entry and a live performance of the Italian singer. Both can bring their songs to the stage and deliver. I would not be surprised to see both of them ending up in the top 10 or even competing for the trophy. Spain and the UK also have decent entries. Nice songs and good vocalists. I’ve also already seen some entries… Read more »

The big 5 have songs that range from good (UK, Spain) to very good (Italy, Germany), except France. France is just terrible. Interestingly, they’re all solo male artists. Netherlands too.

I think all the big 5 have their plus points, perhaps I was suspecting better from Germany, and Spain perhaps. In my opinion, Fai Rumore is the only winner because it’s a fairly weak Eurovision year (so far).
