My Official Top 10 Entries of Eurovision Song Contest 2018

All the entries for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest had been officially announced and I actually surprised because this year is definitely filled with too many good songs. I am having some problem with my top 10 picks and I really have plenty of favorite entries for Eurovision 2018. Some songs eventually grow in me while some of the my early favs had sunk in my own ranking. Nonetheless, there are plenty of promising entries and I am literally satisfied if any of my personal favorites won.

Let’s get straight to the point my top 10 picks for Eurovision 2018 are as follows:

Greece – “Oneiro mou” (Όνειρό μου) by Yianna Terzi

This song is literally enthralling mixed with ethnic Greek ambiance, definitely feels like you’re conversing with the ancient gods. The lyrics are also plus point and tell a very touching story between a nation and its citizen.

Germany – “You Let Me Walk Alone” by Michael Schulte

A very touching song for family. You don’t have a heart if this song will resonates with your inner self.

Hungary – “Viszlát nyár” by AWS

I am really glad that Hungary always dare to defy the normal standard and is not afraid to send an entries with too much diversity and meaning. This year is a hard metal song which conveys no other message than a very intense emotional collision. This is a masterpiece.

Belarus – Forever by Alekseev

I used to hate this song and really find it cheesy. It simply grown in me and it really took my heart away when the revamped was released. For me the lyrics is quite senseless but its beat, melody and rhythm is truly enchanting. Plus, Alekseev voice is so addicting, I feel like I am watching a very tragic romance story while listening onto it.

Albania – Mall by Eugent Bushpepa

One of my early fav and am still rooting for it so bad. Every year Albania send good songs but always fall short to qualify and I am really hoping so bad that this one will qualify for heaven’s effing sake. Too much emotion and ingenuity on Eugent’s voice. So addicting to begin with.

Czech Republic – “Lie to Me” by Mikolas Josef

Not a fan of this genre, but who wouldn’t fall in love with this very catchy song and lively atmosphere that it released. Plus, Mikolas is truly a charming performing that will make you dance with him and to the beat of the song.

Bulgaria – Bones by Equinox

Bulgaria had been pretty great in the recent years sending amazing songs and this year is no exception. I’m still in the process of catching the hang of the song but it is growing in me now.

Azerbaijan – “X My Heart” by Aisel

Just like Forever, I used to not like this song but after watching a preview of its so many times, it simply grown on me later on. Now, it’s one of the songs that I really enjoyed to listen at.

Belgium – A Matter of Time by Sennek

Yes, the very first moment that Laura aka Sennek got chosen to represent Belgium I believe that she’ll be a strong contender and now with her song, I definitely believe that she’s a force to reckon with and I personally love her song too.

Estonia – “La forza” by Elina Nechayeva

A masterpiece of an opera, not expecting this to be so good. Estonia definitely have something unique and awesome this year.

That’s my top 10 picks, nonetheless other personal favorites of mine includes the following:

  • United Kingdom – Storm by Surie
  • Ukraine – Under the Ladder by Melovin
  • France – Mercy by Madame Monsieur
  • Ireland – Together by Ryan O’Shaughnessy
  • Switzerland – Stones by Zibbz
  • Italy – “Non mi avete fatto niente” by Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro
  • Spain – “Tu canción” by Amaia & Alfred
  • Netherlands – “Outlaw in ‘Em” by Waylon
  • Finland – “Monsters” by Saara Aalto
  • Denmark – Higher Ground by Rasmussen

Though I believe this is going to be tough semi-finals especially the first one as I have too many favorites in it. Nonetheless, may the best and most enthralling song win.

I logged in on my Tumblr account and gotten tired watching on some NSFW stuffs that doesn’t supposed to reflect my pathetic interests. This could only means that I’m bored as hell and this sheer boredom simply resonates all the anxieties that I had recently. And speaking of anxiety, aside from the Weekly Anime Chart from Anime Trending on which I am worried what would be the position of my favorite anime Natsume Yuujinchou Roku, I’d been anxious as hell about the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2017.

My Early Favorite for Eurovision 2017: Nathan Trent – Running On Air (Austria)

Nathan Trent will represent Austria at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with the song Running On Air.

Aside from this song, my other favorite entries are from United Kingdom, Italy, France, and Spain. Well, that was quite surprising because it’s all from the Big 5. Anyway, I am really looking forward for the Eurovision 2017 which will starts on May 9 with its first semi-final and end on May 13 with its final’s night. So, I really wish that Nathan Trent and Running On Air will do well in the competition and I heard that he’s actually good in live performance, with that being said I wish him a big good luck. It’s not that far to bring back the competition on Austria, anyway last year’s entry from Zoe was really adorable and heartwarming.
