Best of the Bunch Update: Your Ultimate Eurovision Part 4!

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 final 11 participants in what would be our ‘Ultimate’ Eurovision as decided by you!

Bulgaria

Before Bulgaria kicked into gear in 2016, they weren’t exactly the most successful nation at Eurovision. During our Best of the Bunch years of 2006 to 2015, or in the case of Bulgaria 2013 since they didn’t participate in 2014 or 2015, they qualified to the final only once! Despite that, they have had some gems over the years, and you voted Poli Genova as your Best of the Bunch with her 2011 entry, Na Inat!

Moldova

Moldova are often the surprise package of the contest, with some strange but endearing entries over the years. We’ve seen the craziness of Zdob şi Zdub, and the beauty of Aliona Moon, but who could forget the Epic Sax Guy! Turns out it can’t be forgotten, with Sunstroke Project featuring Olia Tira your current Best of the Bunch from Moldova!

Hungary

We really love Hungary at Eurovision, as they always have such diverse entries from year to year. They’ve come close to winning a few times, including some of the entries in our Best of the Bunch years, but you’ve voted for which song you’ve liked the most and the current Best of the Bunch is András Kállay-Saunders

Montenegro

Montenegro were a bit of a late starter, as they first made their independent debut in 2007. That means our Best of the Bunch journey started a year later, and the nation also skipped a few contests, so we’ve got a few less entries than some of the other nations, but they certainly make up for it in personality! You voted for your Best of the Bunch, and your current winner is Sergej Ćetković!

Russia

Russia are truly a force when it comes to Eurovision, with every year in our Best of the Bunch years a qualifying entry. Whether it’s the Buranovskiye Babushki, or Polina Gagarina, the nation can do no wrong! With such well supported entries, we wondered who the fans would vote for, but now we can say that the current Best of the Bunch is Polina Gagarina with her song A Million Voices!

Andorra

They’re a nation we haven’t seen too often, but they still deserved a Best of the Bunch poll. We’ve got four entries within our Best of the Bunch years, and all four unfortunately failed to qualify to the final! We think they’ll have to return to change that record! Despite that, you voted, and it’s the band Anonymous who is your Best of the Bunch!

United Kingdom

Ah, the United Kingdom. They’re one of the nations who automatically qualifies through to the final, but yet never seems to get a very good result at Eurovision! Saying that, they’ve had some pretty questionable acts over the years, does Scooch or Electro Velvet ring a bell? The fans have voted, and it’s Molly who is your Best of the Bunch with her song Children of the Universe!

Austria

Austria is another nation who haven’t consistently been a part of Eurovision in recent years, having had a break between 2008 and 2010, with their return in 2011. When they returned, they were in it to win it, and that eventuated for the nation in 2014, with Conchita Wurst. You voted, and unsurprisingly it’s still Conchita who is your current Best of the Bunch!

Belgium

It’s taken a while for Belgium to kick into gear and find their Eurovision success, but we’ve certainly had some very interesting entries along the way. We’ve seen the Belgian Elvis, Patrick Ouchène, and there’s been the imaginary language of Ishtar, so points for making things interesting! Fans have voted, and it’s Loïc Nottet as your current Best of the Bunch with his entry Rhythm Inside!

Slovakia

It’s a short but sweet one for Slovakia too, as we haven’t seen too much of them at Eurovision. Despite that, they have sent some songs we’ve really loved over the years, so we think they still deserved a Best of the Bunch poll! Fans have voted, and it’s Kristina who is your current Best of the Bunch with her song Horehronie!

The Netherlands

The Netherlands is another one of those countries who have taken a while to get into the Eurovision groove, but once they got it, they really got it and the good results came flooding in. In the Best of the Bunch years, there certainly were a few questionable entries, but you’ve voted, and it’s The Common Linnets who remain as your current Best of the Bunch with their entry Calm After the Storm!
