All the competing countries of Eurovision 2021 have now had their first rehearsal, and most have had their second. But long before they hit the stage inside Rotterdam Ahoy, our bloggers around the world were busy listening to and ranking their songs. In this video we go around the world to find out who they put on top.
Some of our long-time followers may be asking: Didn’t the Wiwi Jury already vote? Yes. But for the Wiwi Jury, our in-house panel of music unprofessionals each rated all 39 songs out of a 10, and the scores were simply averaged. When you do that all scores move toward the middle. It’s a useful exercise for us, as we all have to think about the songs critically and start to develop our favourites. But what exactly is the difference between a song with a score of 7.15 and a song with a score of 7.25 anyway? (Please don’t say 0.10). In this video, we’re voting “for” our individual favourites using the traditional Eurovision system of awarding countries points. This can change the rankings dramatically.
In our earlier Wiwi Jury, Switzerland, Malta and France came out on top. Will history repeat itself here? You’ll need to watch our 40-minute show to find out!
Note: If you want to keep the results a surprise, then do NOT scroll to the end of this post or look at the comments on the YouTube video. They are full of spoilers! The Live Chat comments on YouTube are OK though — they add to the suspense and the drama. Happy viewing and big love to you all!
