Last year, it was Duncan Laurence with “Arcade”. In 2018, it was Melovin with “Under The Ladder”. And in 2017 it was Blanche with “City Lights”. Once again the time has come to ask our readers to cast their votes for the best music video of Eurovision 2020. You’ll need to take into account the cinematography, originality, acting, and overall awesomeness of this year’s videos. So who should win?
Your options are as varied and arresting as this year’s songs. Tune into the video playlist and what will you see? A young woman elevated on a massive diamond. An energetic dance floor party (with Senhit on the floor). An ode to the Egyptian queen Cleopatra set in the desert. A spiritual journey of emotions — delivered from a park bench. Three confident women telling a man hasta la vista. A Russian band potentially inspired by ABBA’s classic performance of “Waterloo”. And an emotional journey from a man’s bathroom to his group therapy session — filmed with the actual people he opens up to. Collectively it’s a lot to take in, but well worth revisiting.
Please note that neither the videos of the live performances nor the lyric videos are eligible for our poll — just the official music videos that the artists have produced outside of their selections. And, as is the case every year, there isn’t an official music video for every entry. Some may still be in production and will be released after the poll is published, but don’t fret: we will add them to the count as soon as they’re released officially.
It’s now in your hands to vote for the best music video in the poll below. In order to make sure you don’t miss anything, let’s revisit the contenders in the playlist below! It’s up to you, Europe. Start voting now!
