Our series of poll battles continues. Following the cancellation of last year’s contest, the majority of the class of 2020 are back to finally get their chance on the Eurovision stage. But, as is standard Eurovision regulation, they’ve all got new songs. And the comparisons are coming in fast.
So now, we want to hear from our readers. Do you prefer the returning artists’ 2020 or 2021 songs?
Today, we’re heading to Iceland. We want to hear your opinions about Daði og Gagnamagnið. Last year, they were set to sing “Think About Things” in Rotterdam. And in 2021, they return to Eurovision with “10 Years”. Two years, two songs, both signature Daði and co style. But which is better? Vote in our poll now!
Scroll down to vote in our poll.
“Think About Things” (Iceland 2020)
Daði Freyr and his friends were one of the favourites to win Eurovision 2020 with their viral hit “Think About Things” — a track about Daði’s baby daughter. The song made it into the charts all over Europe, and was even featured on the British dancing competition shows Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing On Ice. The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — awarded “Think About Things” an impressive score of 8.03/10, our third highest score of 2020.
“Take note: “Think About Things” walks the line of musical quality, joke entry, commercial appeal and very good production, perfectly”, said wiwiblogger Bernardo. “From outfits to looks and choreography, this entry is planned from its very first second. This would be a contender for the victory and deservedly so. It is infectious and has cross-appeal in all age groups.”
“10 Years” (Iceland 2021)
For their 2021 entry, Daði and his pals are keeping it in the family. “10 Years” is a tribute to Daði’s wife Árný, who features in the band as a sax-come-keytar wielding dancer.
The track also features a 1,000-person choir, which contains the voices of fans from all around the world.
