Eurovision: Top 10 Songs!

I take it you've all watched Eurovision 2015 and I can freely write without having to worry about spoiling anything, right? Cool! So the country with the best music in the world (according to a study conducted by me) won once again - Sweden! But before we go there, let's check out other countries that made it into top 10.

10. Serbia: Bojana Stamenov - Beauty Never Lies
Ok, of course I'm gonna have to be biased here and say this song deserved to be higher. It's a good pop song, exactly what you'd expect at Eurovision, though maybe not from Serbia. I really can't remember the last time Serbia had a song in English for Eurovision... Still, no. 10 is a good result, although the dancers in the performance were a bit creepy.

9. Israel: Nadav Guedj - Golden Boy
Ok, I love this song, I'm not even gonna pretend. It's ridiculously catchy and should've been top 3 at least. The singer has a great voice and some seriously funky shoes (they look like he stole them from one of Kylie's tours). However, Golden Boy sounds so similar to some other song and I can't quite remember which one? Help?

8. Norway: Mørland & Debrah Scarlett - A Monster Like Me
Things are getting serious here. This song is a ballad that doesn't really scream 'Eurovision', but it's a great song nonetheless. Also, you should see the video for it - it looks like a scene from Poirot before he reveals who the killer is. Very tense!

7. Estonia: Elina Born & Stig Rästa - Goodbye to Yesterday
Here's another duo and another awesome song! The singers look like older versions of Nate Ruess and Selena Gomez, but let's forget about that. This is a catchy song with a hook that'll keep you dancing until the very end. My personal favorite, should've won the show,

6. Latvia: Aminata - Love Injected
Hmmm, with this song you first need to take some time to figure out which language she's singing in. After that, you'll find yourself wondering what are you actually listening to and how did this song end up so high? No freaking clue, not a fan at all, sorry :/

5. Australia: Guy Sebastian - Tonight Again
So Australia has officially joined Europe and formed a new continent called Eurostralia, which will also be the official name of Eurovision as of next year! Are you prepared?!
Anyway, the land down under had a pretty good song, very Bruno Mars-esque: the singer had his styling and choreo down to a tee. I don't think the song's good enough for top 5, but I can see why others may like it.

4. Belgium: Loïc Nottet - Rhythm Inside 
Here we have another song that's kinda weird. It has some awkward midtempo rhythm with clapping all throughout the song, making it sound like something Lorde would've done (meaning it can't be good). 

3. Italy: Il Volo - Grande Amore
Italy had an absolutely amazing song and totally deserved its spot. The singers all have stunning vocals and the song is so majestic they should've performed it standing in the Colosseum and singing in Latin, dressed in ancient Roman clothes, with lions running around them. Also, Italy was the only top 10 country whose song wasn't in English.

2. Russia: Polina Gagarina - A Million Voices
Russia's song actually sounds like something the Scandinavian countries would pull out for this contest. It was kinda playing it safe, and it obviously worked. Still, it's not among the best songs in the top 10.

1. Sweden: Måns Zelmerlöw - Heroes
Popular Swedish singer Måns Zelmerlöw won the show with the song Heroes. He had a very interesting, interactive performance with some cute cartoons projected on the screen. Maybe that distracted me from the song, but I didn't really like it. I don't get where the song is going, what it's trying to achieve, and I'm sure Sweden had better songs for Eurovision. Still, well done Sweden and congrats on your victory - the land of ABBA will once again host Eurovision (now Eurostralia) next year! Can't wait!
