Outside of Eurovision week itself, the national final season is perhaps the most exciting time of the year for Eurofans. Hundreds of artists/songs battle it out over the course of December to March, all hoping to earn the right to represent their country at Eurovision.

This year, 24 countries chose their Eurovision 2020 entry through a national final. Broadcasters gave the people at home the power to choose who should represent them on the international stage.

Now, we want to know which of these 24 songs chosen through a national final is your favourite.

Take a look through the list below and click on the links to remind yourself of the songs. Then, vote in our poll. As always, you can vote for as many entries as you want, but you can only vote once – so make it count.

Note: For this poll we’re including all songs that were chosen through a public vote. This includes those where the artist themselves had already been internally selected, including Romania and San Marino.

We’re not including countries where the artist was chosen by a public vote, but the song was later selected internally, such as Malta and Georgia.

Who did you vote for? Do you think the winner of Eurovision 2020 would have been amongst these 24 songs? Sound off in the comments below!

For me, Shaj would’ve been in my top 10 here as well. WIth the English revamp, part of the magic was neutralized for me. It’s still a good song, but I just find some others better. Nonetheless, it would’ve been my qualifier if the semis proceeded.

Iceland for sure! And not only because it’s on the radio while I’m writing this, it’s just basically the most uplifting song and so quirky.
I live for it

Emprires
Fai rumore
Chains on You (the revamp, ofc)

Medo de sentir
Solovey

Nice list Colin, I only have 8 songs that I really like out of the NF winners and only 3 made your list ? I enjoy a further 6 from your list, there’s only one that does absolutely nothing for me – but I won’t tell you in fear of upsetting you!

Colin
Guest
Colin

You can’t upset me by not liking the same songs I do, Kosey. 🙂 If that’s so, hardly anyone would agree here. We all have different tastes and it’s cool to share them. I can tell you that I had both agreements and disagreements over song qualities with basically everyone here. Feel free to share and take care. 🙂

“Feel free to share and take care” I’ll take that as ESC 2020 slogan lmao

Kosey

Ok, then, in the interests of the new motto, I’ll share, it’s Poland’s song, sorry, I just don’t feel the emotion in it and I don’t like the Bond vibe. It’s not last place but unfortunately it’s not far off.

Colin
Guest
Colin

That’s okay, many people don’t seem to like it. And which three do you like the best? 🙂

Kosey
Guest
Kosey

Alcohol You, Feker Libi and Solovey are the ones I really love from your list. I like the other ones, it’s just Empires that doesn’t really do it for me.
But you did fail to pick out my absolute top 2, possibly in the entire contest, never mind just the NF.

Colin
Guest
Colin

Your top 2 – Norway & Albania, maybe? Because I really enjoy these songs as well. I enjoy most of them to a degree. I think that only Belarus and maybe San Marino are bad, with the latter one intending on being “so bad it’s good”.

Albanian fans are so annoying for hijacking the poll! You guys are lucky to have a chance to choose a new song next year! The song this year won’t bring you honor.

I’m sure that if the albanian song was internally chosen, albanian fanbase could still manage to make appear the country in the poll and make it a winner :’)

How does Albania always manage to be #1 in these polls. So weird. (No hate or something against Arilena, love her and her song)

Serpent

Albanian fans seem to be patriotic and there are a lot of them here, I’ve noticed. You can never really trust the polls because some nations vote for their country more than others.

Haha this comment had +15 yesterday and today morning -3. Are those Albanian trolls now even hacking comment section?

Geraldo

I dont think fall from the sky is the best song chosen from the nfs. Actually this song is nothing alike shaj so i dont think this should have been included here.

Kosey

Wow, could Albania have the best song in Eurovision history?

Still breathing or Attention imo the best.
Australia, Lithuania, Serbia, Ukraine and Denmark made great choices as well.
I think that Italy, Albania, Iceland and Romania picked the best ones in their NF.
The rest….. not so much, there are good songs in the bunch tho.

@Mikey we’d be Top 10 every year if that were true.

Geraldo

We wanted. And fall from the sky should not be included here. She won fik with shaj and these songs are so different. I consider them different songs. I love fall from the sky but i dont think is the same song as shaj.

Mikey

Why is Albania so overated

Malo
Guest

In this case Arilena’s supporters are on fire.
I also replied to another comment of yours and I’d like to say that we’re not always overrated. Our actual results speak for themselves. We’re always at the bottom of betting odds and there are not a lot of international fans who like us every year. Maybe they are louder than others and that’s what gave you that idea.

GIOLO

Albania is everything but overrated in my opinion, Mall and Khteju Tokes were amazing mqsterpiece, both deserved top 10 in my opinion. Fall from the sky is also really good too, however don’t think the results of this poll refelcts what people Think…

Shaj won FiK, not FFTS (though I like it as well)

Jan Neisius

But it‘s a revamp, so it technically was chosen through a national final through fik

Roy Moreno

New title, lyrics, language and a different instrumental
Not quite a revamp, more like another version, nearly another song

Geraldo
Guest

I think the same. I convider these songs totally different.

Tommy

The instrumental is very similar

Mr Vanilla Bean

Alcohol You

Fai rumore
Voda
Divlji vjetre
Solovey the original

Mr Vanilla Bean

I’m not sure whether to include ‘Fall from the Sky’ because it’s not exactly the song that won the NF.

Malo
Guest

Only the chorus melody is similar in the two songs.
