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!

Armenia: Athena Manoukian – “Chains On You”

Many videos are excellent for different reasons. Some of my favorites: – Greece – The most wholesome in narrative. It’s also fitting to the song and the message. – Iceland – Very funny and charming in an ”adorkable” way the song is as well. – Azerbaijan – Looks cool and she’s gorgeous. Combines some ”ancient” and modern elements as does the song. – Switzerland – Saturated tones with some symbolism are perfect for this song. – Armenia – Very dynamic and looks like an expensive club setting as does the song. – Romania – Simple, but very effective. Rotating lyrics… Read more »

Lithuania should be higher and malta too. Malta’s video clip is very positive and it’s a symbol of freedom. And the lithuanian one is charming and cool.

Greece 9th? Are you kidding? That’s literally the most embarrassing and cringeworthy Eurovision video I’ve ever seen. The song is nice but seriously, that music video is the worst.
Switzerland, Azerbaijan, or Lithuania are great and full of art.

They don‘t hate each other because they are powerhouses. They hate each other for completely different reasons

Thats not what Typhlosion was saying (it was more like its a shame they dont like each other. They are both powerhouses at eurovision so its a shame, rather than they hate each other because they are powerhouses)

Armenia, Azerbaijan and Bulgaria (I like the minimalist concept of the videoclip and I also love the way Victoria expresses her feelings in it). San Marino’s is kinda fun too.

As far as music video goes, I’d give it to either Bulgaria, Russia, or Iceland. Probably Russia though, they nailed the concept + execution perfectly.

My favorite NF season music video would go to All the Blood, as it blends message and mood so well, creating a very emotional narrative.

Also, Hooverphonic’s music video is severely underrated, seeing as it’s second last. Sure, everyone in it looks clinically depressed, but it’s classier and moodier than most of the competition. Well, other than Bulgaria.

I had a few favourites this year (Armenia, Czech Republic, Italy), but I gotta pick Iceland as the best one. It’s such a brilliant music video – great concept, well-thought-out buildup, satisfying payoff, perfect comedic timing, seemless editing, adorable dance routine, natural acting and endearing quirky retro vibe. You can tell that the crew had a lot of fun making it – the warmth and lighthearted atmosphere are just radiating from the screen. The video is visably low-budget, but it’s still miles more memorable and effective than many of today’s expensive MVs.

Some great choices this year, but the ones I plumped for:
– Azerbaijan – I love the juxtaposition of the ancient and the modern and Samira plays both excellently
– Bulgaria – a great aesthetic with the dreamy stars, camera angles and Victoria being central to everything, conveying the emotion perfectly
-Czech Republic – excellently depicts the party atmosphere in the song.
– Moldova – so classy, complements the song very well.
– Romania – the swirling spirals and flashing lights are intoxicating and great for the themes in the song.
