The five Nordic countries — that’s Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden — have won Eurovision a total of thirteen times between them. Sweden leads the way with six wins, while Iceland is the only nation in the mix that hasn’t yet cinched the title. The Icelanders, however, have tasted success. They finished as runners-up in both 1999 and 2009. 

But that’s all in the past. Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool is the future. So we have to ask: Now that all five Nordic countries have chosen their artist and song, which is your favourite?

You can vote for as many countries as you’d like, but you can only vote one time. Be sure and click the box next to each country you want to support before hitting VOTE. You can scroll down to review the acts in case you’ve forgotten them…which is probably a bad sign for their chances!

What’s the best Nordic entry at Eurovision 2023?

Denmark: Reiley with “Breaking My Heart”

Faroese TikTok sensation Reiley brings a fresh electronic sound and a really intense vocal effect with “Breaking My Heart.” The song recounts Reiley’s heartbreak and the many feelings that flow from that — including pain, nostalgia, regret and, of course, love.

Finland: Käärijä with “Cha Cha Cha”

With “Cha Cha Cha,” the Finnish rapper moves from rage to joy — all with the help of a pina colada. “Finland is a party country, a heavy metal country and a pop country – this song brings all of those together,” Käärijä said ahead of the national final. He also brings a neon green bolero and a “piggy train” made of flamenco dancers. This is a WTF performance that really makes you smile. 

Iceland: Diljá with “Power”

Diljá Pétursdóttir was first seen on the stage at the young age of 12 when she competed in Iceland’s Got Talent back in 2015. Eight years on she is channeling “Power” with her entry, which is all about inner strength and perseverance. Someone has done her wrong, but she knows she can look within for the solution. The song has drum ‘n bass elements, over which her voice dances and glides.

Norway: Alessandra with “Queen of the Kings”

Party Norwegian forest fantasy, part Norwegian sea shanty, “Queen of the Kings” is a dance number built on female empowerment. Alessandra shakes her hips with abandon and channels the strength and energy that she sings about. Sleek Norwegian lighting make this really pop. 

Sweden: Loreen with “Tattoo”

“Tattoo” is a dark dance-pop track about holding on to the right love that’s arrived at the wrong time. Despite proclaiming “it’s time to say goodbye”, Loreen says “this is not the end” and retains hope that in the future stars will align and her love will thrive. With lyrics like “I don’t care about the pain, I’ll walk through fire and through rain”, Loreen promises she’ll do whatever it takes to get back to that person. The LED screens transport us to another world — one that’s at once abstract, but somehow natural and of the Earth. They help remove the audience from the picture entirely, suspending reality as we fall into Loreen’s sonic and visual universe.

Who did you vote for? Do you think any of these acts can exceed expectations when they hit Liverpool? Which acts can realistically make the final? Let us know in the comments down below.

I don’t see any good reason for Nordics to go against each other, it only strenghtens the countries images if any of them does well. This year there’s not a single song I wouldn’t like to listen, here’s my predictions:

TOP-3: Finland, Sweden
TOP-10: Norway
Denmark and Iceland might end up below 15, but I see final possible for them.

I hope ppl understand that polls on Wiwibloggs are easily manipulated and that the “you can only vote once” isn’t true and that there’s a loophole that obviously has been taken advantage of here. We can all see that the amount of votes for Finland and Sweden’s are way too high and they’re gaining votes at a ridiculously fast rate.

I’ve only seen it with Finland as well, but I assume by the total amount of votes right now and by some comments here that Sweden had a moment where the same thing happened and gained a lot of votes in a short period of time. Anyways, the results on polls here on Wiwibloggs shouldn’t be taken seriously since it seems it’s very easy to mass vote and to manipulate the results. Every result should be taken with a huge grain of salt, unfortunately.

Then the Swedes must be absolutely terrible at cheating (at 2am) because whilst Finland gained 730 votes overnight, Sweden gained 25. Maybe the instructions on who to vote for and when to vote for them were unclear? Jokes aside, fansites and people asking for votes will only gain a certain amount of steady incoming votes, they won’t have a pull where they get people voting at the rate of over 2 votes per minute per hour for several hours non-stop. This is obviously a few fans mass voting for their (favourite) country to try and have them win. The problem… Read more »

Those comments is so incorrect and a Lie. I don’t like when people lying, especially when they haven’t met her as a person or seen her live. and that’s how rumors starts… It’s absolutely fine not liking a song or prefer something else but use an argument based on a lie it’s a No go.

Just, speaking as a Dane, I don’t think it’s us from the Nordic countries that are throwing shade at each other, because we see ourselves as a small unity within the contest, and always cheer for each others’ success. I could be wrong, but I dare say I know our mentality, and any shade that might get thrown is meant as a joke and not to be taken seriously. Which we know. I am really hoping to see all the Nordics in the final this year.

It’s become quite clear that loreen has become the poster person for this Eurovision which means she will receive the greatest AirPlay and time on most forums etc.
The contest was always political with Greece Cyprus voting for each other and the Ukraine war last year. But I fear it’s becoming less about music than ever and more about who gets the best promotion.
Finland and Israel for me.
But I think if loreen wins then the contest really is on the decline musically fast.

It makes me sad that finally we have a diamond entry, such unique, fun and happy but then comes Loreen with a million dollar production and a pretty okay song and people get crazy for sweden. We will always be underdogs and weirdos with some. For once I would love someone not so likely to win like unpopular Finland.

Somebody has met him about 2015 in Finland(in Vaasa), said she’s was lovely. No marks success going to her head. The incident in MF afterparty with DJ has partly some missunderstanding?

Yeah, something like that. And they were joking.

I don’t like when people lying about stuff or someone, especially when they aren’t there or have the full story, that’s dangerous and that’s how rumors starts…
It’s absolutely fine not liking a song or prefer something else but use an argument based on a lie it’s a No go.

I can’t help but think, Finland is getting carried by fans that dislike Sweden this year for no reason. I do enjoy Finland but I still can’t get how it is hyped by so many

I genuinely enjoy Finland’s entry. It makes me smile, move, and sing along.
Sweden’s I can do without. I don’t need a Eurovision song to become a high art installation of sorts. All respect to Loreen and the team around her that create these performances, it’s just not what I enjoy/need/want when I watch Eurovision. Besides that, I have no idea what the heck she’s singing because she tends to mumble her way through the song.

Finland’s entry is the most overhyped and overrated song in ESC 2023. Reminds me of Malta’s Destiny that everyone kept praising and saying she’d win. We’ll, we know how that turned out.

If anything Loreen is more reminiscent of Destiny (who i really enjoyed by the way) top of the odds, written by generic swedish songwriters, former eurovision winners… I think Loreen is good but everyone saying it’s going to win is tiring, can we get to Liverpool first…

I dont think that that is a true statement. Finland isn’t being carried because people dislike the Swedish song. Factually speaking, the Finnish song had been released a while ago and the song was universally loved immediately back then. The Swedes have only just selected their song so ‘Cha Cha Cha’ isn’t being carried by the hatred for the Swedish song. Also ‘Tattoo’ is currently at the top of the My Eurovision Scoreboard leaderboard. It’s considerably ahead of Finland in points so I don’t see the problem. Both songs are great and stand up in their own right. I wish… Read more »

I’m most excited for Norway because I feel like it has the most potential. I think we’ve already seen Sweden and Finlands staging. Denmark and Iceland have no real chance. But Norway? Norways got just enough of a chance to make it exciting – the delegation has promised to change both the staging and the costume, adding LED screens, making it more dynamic, new dancers who can sing while dancing, etc.

My top 5, although really unpopular, I like most of the Nordic entries this year but I still haven’t real,y managed to connect with the majority of them because I like other entries better so don’t be shocked if you see many low positions. 1. Finland – Cha Cha Cha – (10/10)__(My #1, my ESC WINNER) 2. Sweden – Tattoo – (7.5/10)__(My #15) 3. Norway – “Queen Of Kings” – (6/10)__(My #20) 4. Iceland – “Power” (6/10)__(My #21 although, I feel I have massively robbed Dilja and Norway’s entry sounds even more artificial day by day that passes). 5. Denmark… Read more »

Finland: Kinda unique, but not catchy
Sweden: way overhyped
Norway: catchy, but not very unique
Iceland: catchy and likable
Denmark: likeable and a nice songs after a few listens

All in all, none of them are in my top 10.

Before you downvote or bash me for this, just let me remind you this is my opinion about the songs and not whom I think has more chances to win or anything of that sort.
I actually think this could be the first time in years all Nordic countries can make it to the final.

In my mind Loreen is too good for this contest. She should have been a world star by now 🙂 Seriously.

I’m not sure really. She jumped off that train. She talked in a podcast about becoming a consumable product after her victory. She realised after hanging from a crane in Germany performing Euphoria that she needed a break from all that. She needed to be more true to herself. So just after some months she stopped the success train and started with other things.

She actually spent some year editing tv shows. She didn’t want to be in center. But I guess she’s over that now.

Finland is first because they haven’t won as much as Sweden 😉 That’s how people work. I like Finland’s song, but in a weak year it’s not much else to choose from. For me it’s only Sweden and Finland.
