This year at wiwibloggs we are celebrating the festive season with a series of different polls. We’ll be stuffing your stockings with a selection of Eurovision votes throughout the holidays. Consider this a unique riff on the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas” carol.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can join us and let us know your thoughts for each and every poll. Today’s question — Who is your favourite fourth place Eurovision act of the 2010s?
Eurovision fourth place acts: 2010 to 2019
2010: Chanée and N’evergreen — “In a Moment Like This” (Denmark)
2011: Mika Newton — “Angel” (Ukraine)
2012: Sabina Babayeva — “When the Music Dies” (Azerbaijan)
2013: Margaret Berger — “I Feed You My Love” (Norway)
2014: Aram MP3 — “Not Alone” (Armenia)
2015: Loïc Nottet — “Rhythm Inside” (Belgium)
2016: Poli Genova — “If Love Was a Crime” (Bulgaria)
2017: Blanche — “City Lights” (Belgium)
2018: Michael Schulte — “You Let Me Walk Alone” (Germany)
2019: Luca Hänni — “She Got Me” (Switzerland)
Poll: Who is your favourite fourth place Eurovision act of the 2010s?
NR. 1 MARGARET BERGER — “I FEED YOU MY LOVE” (NORWAY). Because of the beat and the dark lyrics – that makes it less «eurovision-cheesy» then a lot of the other songs.
wow … toughest one so far. poli genova, blanche and loic nottet were all bloody brilliant and in my all-time top 10.
IF YOU DIDNT VOTE SABINA BABAYEVA YOU HAVE NO TASTE
So hard to choose as there are some great songs here. Poli just edges it over Luca Hanni. All together now: tiny rooster! (Misheard lyric of the day)
I need the poll for 5th places only because Suus would win it by far – JA.
All of them is in my iPod since then. But, not of the winners had the same destiny.
I voted for Denmark 2010, Norway 2013, Belgium 2017 and Switzerland 2019. Belgium 2017 is my favourite because I think they bought something completely different to the contest and City Lights doesn’t sound like a run of the mill Eurovision song (though I’m happy for Portugal winning that year, I still stand by the belief that I think Belgium should have instead). The same I’d say for Norway 2013.
Some great songs in the list!
I voted for the 2 Belgians, which are 2 of my favourite ESC songs of all time
This was so hard! So many good songs that I still listen to regularly. In the end I went with Blanche and City Lights, can’t see myself ever getting sick of hearing that song.
I still can’t listen 2011 and 2012 fourth placers, I don’t know why I just can’t like either one.
Belgium on the other hand was perfect in 2015 and 2017
Starting from 2012, the fourth place have been a staple synonym with quality and very interesting/ “indie” music. Although, putting Switzerland 2019 as quality or “indie” might be quite a stretch. Still the performance just elevated that song to the point of iconicness in a matter of seconds.
No shade on Chanée and N’Evergreen or Mika but those two definitely are the odd ones out that doesn’t really belong with the level of all the rest of the list. Oh well, at least Mika’s sand artist was definitely cool to watch.
Man I love most of this entries more than those from the bunchs of winner, 2nd place and 3rd place!
So hard to choose right know. My two absolute favs here are Belgium 2017 and Germany 2018, those are my votes. Both are, in fact, in my top 10 songs since I watch the contest.
9-10. The other two.
For me it has to be Blanche, hands down. A song that I still listen to almost every day, one of the best of the decade. But all of the other entries are amazing as well, this is an incredibly strong set of songs!
Blanche/City lights not winning this poll is blasphemy
My top would be
Poli Genova (Bulgaria).
I love all of them. My personal winner usually finishes 4th anyhow, haha.
I voted for Blanche. I am a sucker for the vulnerability.
4th place = awesomeness
Voted for two examples of Belgian excellence. 🙂
In what way not a good trendsetter Una?
OK, thanks. But do you mean Hungary 2019 for the departed father and not the 2018 punk/rock track?!
You do realise that not everyone is religious, right?
Loic Nottet is just one of the most talented artists (if not THE most talented) to have graced the Eurovision stage in recent years, period.
Easily 2015 .. Top 3 that year would all have been worthy winners
omg i love those 4th places, so hard to decide. so……just for today…..1. Poli Genova, 2. Loic Nottet, 3. Luca Hänni, 4. Michael Schulte. But they are all winners to me !
Norway 2013 is my #1. Honorable mentions are Azerbaijan 2012 and Belgium 2015/2017.
I see “Angel” is dead last in this poll, as it should be…
I gave 22 points for Belgium and 8 for Norway: Loïc, Blanche and Margaret.
My votes go to:
Some of my ultimate favorites ended-up as 4th. I voted for 3 masterpieces which should have won – Germany 2018, Belgium 2015 and Azerbaijan 2012 (all three are in my top 3 of their highly competitive years). Belgium 2017 and Norway 2013 are also incredibly strong. Also, in a year as weak as 2011, Ukraine really stood out enough to be in my top 10. All the others are good too, with Denmark 2010 as the only one which is merely okay. So, this category is overall amazing! 🙂
4th place is notorious for having some of the best songs. In the last five contests alone, Loïc (‘15), Poli (‘16), Blanche (‘17), and Luca (‘19) had some of the best songs to ever grace the Eurovision stage! My top five fourth-placers include those songs as well as HaSheket SheNish’ar from 2005.
So many talented singers and amazing songs ended up 4th!!! So hard to chose but I voted for 2012 and 2015.
Edgy modern pop… must be either romania or bulgaria this year 😀
Holy crap these are so strong. I love every single song from 2012-2019, not a single bad song in there. 2011 was forgettable and 2010 too cheesy for me, but every one of these other songs are genuinely amazing.
I think nearly all these songs were my favourites from those years, very hard choice! Blanche and poli are both songs I still listen to on a regular basis.
Couldn’t pick just one… 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019… songs that could have won in other years
The way Margaret, Poli, Loïc and Blanche were my favorites from their editions…..
Seems like 4th place is often times better than winner
I love 2016, 2017 and 2018 personally
