The first and biggest Super Saturday of 2021 is over. It leaves behind a trail of glitter and drama. But we’ve also got three more songs to add to the Eurovision 2021 roster — TIX’s “Fallen Angel” for Norway, Blind Channel’s “Dark Side” for Finland and Blas Cantó’s “Voy a quedarme” for Spain. And now it’s time to once more ask — who is your favourite Eurovision 2021 act so far?
Croatia’s Albina took gold in our last survey for a second time, but will it be third time the charm? You decide!
You can listen to the entries from Norway, Finland and Spain below. Then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting is open until Tuesday 23 February — the day when Senhit will release her song for San Marino.
We will then relaunch the poll at the weekend to include new entries from San Marino, Cyprus, Germany, Ireland, and Slovenia, along with any other songs which might drop between now and then.
Eurovision 2021 entries as of 21 February
Norway’s TIX with “Fallen Angel”
Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 2021 final was touted as being one of the strongest in years. Yet despite the abundance of quality, the selection was always going to be between two acts — Eurovision 2019 stars KEiiNO and local superstar TIX. The bookies backed the former while the charts suggested the latter had the edge. In the end, it was TIX who won out with “Fallen Angel”, the English-language version of “Ut av mørket”. He easily topped the public vote, pulling in more votes than even Alexander Rybak in 2018.
Finland’s Blind Channel with “Dark Side”
Finland too had one of its most successful national selections for some years. Of the seven entries, three cracked the top ten in the country’s official singles chart. This included Blind Channel with “Dark Side”, the act which emerged victorious from Saturday’s UMK 2021 final. The violent pop group convincingly topped both the jury and public vote.
Spain’s Blas Cantó with “Voy a quedarme”
Last year he was due to sing the internally selected “Universo”. But for 2021, Spain decided to shake things up slightly and let the public choose Blas Cantó’s next Eurovision entry. They were presented with two options — “Memoria” and “Voy a quedarme”. The people opted for the latter, a song which Blas says he wrote at the most difficult moment of his life — a time when he lost both his father and grandmother.
