Eurovision 2021

In another step towards normality, we were able to hold our Eurovision party this year, albeit with only a couple of friends and far more COVID testing. This is good because Eurovision is really a thing you need to do with other people. We also did our own voting and our top six came out as:

Russia, 19
Malta, 16
France, 15
Finland, 14
Ukraine, 13
Iceland, 11

France came 2nd, Iceland came 4th, Ukraine came 5th, Finland came 6th, Malta in 7th and Russia in 8th. So, we were on the mark with most of it. But Switzerland took us by surprise. It was a joke entry, right? And, Italy one, which also did not make it onto our scoreboard.

I didn’t like the songs when I listened through before the contest but the night itself won me over. A few of them will make it onto my Eurovision Spotify playlist: Italy (Zitti e Buoni), Sweden (Voices), Finland (Dark Side), Serbia (Loco Loco), Cyprus (El Diablo), and maybe Iceland (10 Years). I’ve also added Romania (Amnesia) which did not make the final.
