Over the last three years, we’ve been trying to find your Best of the Bunch from each of the competing Eurovision nations. We’ve been recapping the entries from 2006 to 2015, and then giving you, the fans an opportunity to vote for which act you think is the Best of the Bunch! These polls are ongoing, and will continue to be ongoing, as we know favourites can change over time, but now we want to create the ‘Ultimate Eurovision’ based on your Best of the Bunch from each of the nations!
Today we’re going to be showing the second lot of 12 participants in what would be our ‘Ultimate’ Eurovision as decided by you! You can see part 1 of our Ultimate Eurovision here!
Armenia haven’t been at Eurovision for as long as many of the other competing nations, but they’ve sure made an impact, being present at nearly every single Eurovision final. They’re yet to win, but they’ve had some great results over the years, making it harder to choose the Best of the Bunch! The fans have chosen, and your current best of the bunch is Sirusho with Qele Qele!

Norway have had a fairly long history at the contest, with three wins under their belt, with the most recent being Alexander Rybak in 2009. Their results in recent years have been on a bit of a rollercoaster, with some top 10 results, and some non-qualifications, but you voted, and we have a best of the bunch! Your current favourite is Mørland and Debrah Scarlett with their song A Monster Like Me.

Lithuania is one of those nations where you just don’t know what to expect, and that shows with their run of songs between our Best of the Bunch years of 2006 to 2015. Despite that, we have some strong favourites in the bunch, so we left the voting up to you, and your favourite is the dynamic duo of Monika and Vaidas!

Serbia first made their independent debut in 2007, so their best of the bunch journey was slightly shorter than some of the other nations, but they sure make it up with the quality of songs. They set the bar high with a win on debut, and since then have been fairly consistent, only missing the final a couple of times. You guys voted, and you agreed that the Best of the Bunch is Serbia’s winning song by Marija Šerifović!

Azerbaijan is also one of the newer nations at Eurovision, having only debuted back in 2008. Despite that, they have appeared at every single final since their debut, which is an impressive streak, not to mention their win in 2011, and a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th place over the years! Your current best of the bunch is Aysel and Arash with their song Always!

We have to applaud Spain, because year after year they try to put their best foot forward at the contest, but it rarely yields a good result. Sometimes their best efforts seem to be a bit questionable, but in recent years, the quality definitely seemed to improve, even if not reflected in the results. Anyway, the fans voted for their Best of the Bunch, and currently it’s Pastora Soler leading the poll by only one vote over Edurne!

They said they wanted to be popular, and popular they are. Sweden have such a good Eurovision reputation, especially in recent years with no less than two winning songs in the last few years. It’s a strong field to pick from, but the fans voted for Loreen with her winning song Euphoria!

Croatia is a mixed bag at the contest, from the ethno tunes to the crazy pop entries. Although the songs from Croatia have often been hit or miss, the songs we love, we really love. Every song in our poll got on the board, but your current winner is Severina!

Poland weren’t the most successful nation, but after a two year break from the contest, they returned and have since been a part of the final each and every year. We certainly have our favourites from the bunch, but you voted, and it’s Cleo and Donatan who are your Best of the Bunch with their song My Słowanie – We Are Slavic!

We love that Finland can go from the poppiest of pop music to the hardest of rock music, and it’s this diversity that keeps us on our toes. They had their first win in 2006 with Lordi, but haven’t yet managed to repeat that success, or really even come close to that success. Turns out the fans agree that Lordi is the current Best of the Bunch!

We la-la-love Cyprus at Eurovision, and even though they don’t always do too well, we think there are some gems in their Eurovision line-up over the years! They’ve got the ballads and the pop entries covered, but you voted and it’s Ivi Adamou who is your current Best of the Bunch with her entry La La Love!

Latvia are again one of those hit and miss nations at Eurovision, and during the Best of the Bunch years, we saw a lot of songs that failed to qualify to the final. Despite that, we really love a handful of the entries from over the years, and we were sure you did too! Your current Best of the Bunch is Aminata with her epic entry Love Injected!

And there you have it! That’s part two of our Ultimate Eurovision as decided by you! The polls will remain open, so keep voting, and stay tuned for part 3 coming soon!
