My Top 100 Eurovison Entries Ever 20-1
So, the countdown comes to an end but before we cut it out of our lives until an updated version including the 2011 entrants comes along….here are My Top 20…….!!
Song: “Dile Que La Queiro”
Artist: David Civera
David Civera is just dreamy with an amazing song…I just hate the two dancers beside him, they are really distracting and I just want to slap the head off them! David had a great voice, a very sexy presentation, I am guessing that this comes natural to David! I am lost in his eyes!
Song: “Open Your Heart”
Artist: Birgitta Haukdal
Birgitta stole the start to the 2003 show with a very up tempo, yet sweet song, very strong voice and Birgitta had great connection with the camera and the audience. I think Birgitta should revisit Eurovison again!
Song: “Don Artik”
Artist: Tugba Onal
Tugba, Tugba, Tugba, you are just 100% crazy looking and I can’t get enough of you! Tugba stole the stage and I don’t think anyone else on stage was even noticed during those three minutes!! I adore this song and wish Turkey would send some more of this style!
Song: “Why Me?”
Artist: Linda Martin
My favourite Irish entry, Linda was just quite simply perfection! Linda breezed her way through this performance without even trying, she is ever the professional would never let something as trivial as “nerves” get the better of her! One of the few very deserving winners!
Song: “Through My Window”
Artist: Sandra Oxenryd
Position: 18th in Semi Final
Sandra Oxenryd put hugely amazing energy into this song and no one could say she didn’t give this her all. A fabulous song with wonderful performance from backing dancers to support Sandra.
Song: “Image Of You”
Artist: Anjeza Shahini
Position: 7th in Final
This is a huge favourite of mine, because of Anjeza’s very popular, friendly and warm facial expressions. A very polished performance with a beautiful song that I was not expecting at all from Albania that year! Also, Anjeza has such a very distinctive voice that gives this song such a strong unique sound!
Song: “Leylaklar Soldu Kalbinde”
Artist: Buket Bengisu & Group Safir
Buket is my 2nd highest placed crazy looking person! She looks like she has been let out of her local asylum for a night of partying with her equally weird and badly dressed friends with the exception of her gorgeous male backing singer (he needs to get rid of his tacky t-shirt, just take it off I guess??).
Song: “Give Me Your Love”
I just felt all warm, happy and ready to party after I watched this in 2003. Jessica and Magnus make a wonderful partnership and even though they have very different voices, they work fabulously together! Another stunning entry to come from the ever producing Sweden!
Song: “Another Summer Night”
Artist: Fabrizio Faniello
Malta’s best entry I believe, with a very happy, maybe a bit cheesy for some but happy song either way! A gorgeous performance from Fabrizio, one he has never been able to equal since. The backing dancers while in terrible harem satin trousers, did put in a very good performance!
Artist: Jelena Tomasevic
What a stunning, haunting, ethnic, beautiful song! I should have known with the previous quality of Zjelko Joksimovic, his songs are amazing, some of the best I have ever heard. Jelena did not let him down with her own unique style added to this song, should have made for a winning performance.
Song: “Dum Tek Tek”
Position: 4th in Final
Turkey’s best effort in regards to a dance/pop song in my opinion. I loved this when I first heard it and was thrilled to see that Hadise managed to do a better job on stage. Very addictive song and great for the clubs!
Song: “Wir Geben ‘Na Party”
Mekado are my highest placed crazy people!!! I just adore them!! The dancing is soooo bad, it’s fabulous! I have actually re-enacted this at late night eurovision sessions with my friends who, quite sadly, were quite happy to do so! I adore the quy on the keyboard and the terrible “girl” on the drums who fell out of the Prisoner Cell Block H wing!
Artist: Anna Sahlene
Position: Joint 3rd
Another Swedish angel and thats just what she is, an angel! Although, I would bet that Anna is in actual fact a bit of a minx and that why I love her! She had an amazing song, an equally amazing voice and she rocked that arena, the audience went wild while she sung her little heart out! WOW! I love Anna!
Song: “Fangad Av En Stormvind”
Well it was bound to happen, you cannot have a top 10 ever with regards to Eurovision and not have the Queen of Eurovision herself, Carola, involved. Carola dashed out onto the stage in Italy with huge gusto and straight into the face of more gusts…in the form of a wind machine bellowing through her hair! Carola gave a stomping rendition of “Fangad Av En Stormvind” which has now become one of the absolute Eurovision favourites among Eurovision fans and rightly so!
Song: “It Hurts”
Artist: Lena Philipsson
Position: Joint 5th in Final
Lena sashayed and swept through the building like a hot sweaty, unexpected orgasm burning through everyone with her very sexy, powerful, playful performance She was like a rampant panther searching though the audience with her eyes peeking out under perfectly tousled hair for her prey! What a show! Lena deserver to be higher that year, maybe she should have even won it! I want my own microphone stand!!
For her age back then, Carola gave an amazing energy and confidence that belied her years. Her performance that year was simple, effective, great voice and of course, an unforgettable song! Carola, I can’t get enough!!!
Song: “Allez Ola Ole”
Artist: Jesse Matador
Position: 12th in Final
I know I am going to be slated for this! Jesse’s whole intention of going all out and dancing like there was no tomorrow with a song to match just could not get me to sit down for weeks after this was taking over the stage! Jesse and his excellent dancers went through some work out and rocked the place! This song is soo addictive and each time I listen to it, I must play it at least 3 or 4 times! I want Jesse to “perform” at one of my parties!!
Song: “This Is My Life”
Position: 24th in Final
When I first heard this, I got major tingles in my stomach for this and when I watched the performance, I was equally happy but they saved the best performance for the Eurovision stage. In any excellent Eurovision performance, you have to translate to a tv and arena audience that you are enjoying it yourself every bit as much as you want the audience to enjoy it and these two certainly did!!! Amazing song!!!
Carola gave the performance of a lifetime in her semi final in 2006 with her smash hit schlager winner “Evighet” and her version of Invincible was equally perfect in Athens, I should know, I was there frantically waving my Swedish flag (all the while receiving vicious looks from my fellow Irish brigade). A lot has been said about Carola’s personal views (which by the way, I don’t believe) but you cannot mistake that she always gives her all in a performance and she is Sweden’s top Diva without a shadow of a doubt and she has earned her title!!
Artist: Charlotte Perelli
Position: 18th in Final
Charlotte Perrelli (formerly Nilsson) has long been a Swedish Diva along with Carola & Lena Ph, she has bravely taken Sweden back to Eurovision in 2008 and did not get the recognition she deserved. This was the biggest travesty in Eurovision’s history in my opinion. This is a huge schlager hit with all the elements you could have asked for and easily could have been a winner. Charlotte was once again on top form when she performed in Serbia with all vocals being perfect! Charlotte just made the number one slightly ahead Carola as this is more of a club schlager hit than “Evighet/Invincible” but it was a very, very close contest! Well done Charlotte & Sweden!
