Dami Im's Eurovision 2021 Top 10 Favourites

She’s the woman responsible for one of the most iconic Eurovision performances of recent times. And now, Australia’s Eurovision 2016 star Dami Im has shared her top ten picks for the 2021 song contest. In a vlog with Aussievision, the “Sound Of Silence” star reveals her personal favourites for Rotterdam.

From chansons to rock to pure pop, it’s an eclectic mix. Read Dami’s comments below, or keep scrolling to watch the video.

Dami Im’s Eurovision 2021 top 10

10. Moldova: Natalia Gordienko — “Sugar”

It’s really catchy. I listened to all the songs and there was just something super memorable about it. It was fun and the hook… I love dance breaks! The video’s really cool too.

9.  Ireland: Lesley Roy — “Maps”

I chose this purely from just listening to the songs. And then I watched the videos later. So, when I listened to the song I thought “Oh, that’s a really good, like, well-written song. Her voice is really nice and pure. I had a feeling that wasn’t the most popular choice at the moment, but I think it’s a great song. I think her voice is better than everyone else.

8. Croatia: Albina — “Tick-Tock”

This one also has a break. I love the scene with all the girls and the dresses. Beyoncé. I think I generally go for the more memorable songs. There are so many good songs, but not every one stays with you. And this one, you just keep on singing it afterwards.

7. Iceland: Daði og Gagnamagnið — “10 Years”

Last year was amazing. He’s still a genius, we all know that. His style, the production, the vocals, everything is perfect. But when I just listen to the song it didn’t stick with me like it did last year. That might change. It might keep growing.

6. Italy: Måneskin — “Zitti e buoni”

Look, I’m not a huge rock n’ roll person. But you don’t have to love rock necessarily to appreciate that this song is really cool. I love this song. And the video is cool too. That’d be so cool if the won with that song! I’d be surprised, but happy.

5. Sweden: Tusse — “Voices”

This is Roy our videographer’s number one choice. He said, “this is the best song, how can you put it at number five?”. I agree, it’s a great song. It’s so catchy. It’s an earworm. I love Sweden.

4. Bulgaria: Victoria — “Growing Up Is Getting Old”

Like a little fairytale. Cute story. It really depends on your taste and how you feel when you’re voting while watching Eurovision.

3. France: Barbara Pravi — “Voila”

So beautiful. It’s all in French, so I don’t understand any of it. But, I could listen to this forever. She’s very very special.

2. Malta: Destiny — “Je Me Casse”

(You know I like runner-ups!). She can sing. And, not just that. It’s got this blending of genres that kind of old-time with the new-time. And the sass! It’s just so fun. I think she’s brilliant. Amazing.

1. Switzerland: Gjon’s Tears — “Tout l’Univers”

Maybe I like depressing songs. It is very depressing, isn’t it? When I heard this song for the first time, it was just captivating. And then the more I listened to it, it just got better and better. And when it gets to the chorus, it’s really hooky as well. Really memorable. It’s like exactly the type of song I would listen to a lot. But that could be a personal preference, so I don’t know.

If Montaigne wasn’t internally selected by SBS , Dami Im was going to send her track ”Paper Dragon” to the Australia Decides , probably she would be one of the participants this year

Lucky her. Even “Technicolor” deserves the final more than that one.

Well, he’s from Austria so I guess he chooses to speak American English (although Bri’ish English is far superior)

That’s why I’m not sad about Brexit. We don’t need a superiority complex in Europe.

Well, with a song like that Australia would safely be in the final, but this is worse than Technicolour

Alrhough she is not fan of rock, she says she loves the song, she even mentioned winning for Italian entry, she is a wise person we know she got 2nd position in 2016 with such a brilliant performance, yes Italy has potential to even win this year, I be happy to see this deep rooted rock song win more lively than Finland winning song in 2006,

I find her top 10 awful but it is interesting that she didn’t include Australia, so maybe she was giving her honest opinion after all instead of just trying to be nice and politically correct.

That’s understandable. When there is nothing impressive about oneself, one is easily impressed.

Always nice to see former contestants keeping up with ESC. I always get the impression that most of them rather want to forget it. Like “yeah it was fun but let’s not talk about it”. Or that they say “you know, I haven’t watched it since I took part in it”, stuff like that.

A lot of them also try to come back, like Keiino and Eric Saade this year, and hopefully Dami next year.
