The Eurovision week ends with Toy’s victory

I had this dilemma this week whether I should make separate posts for the two semifinals and the final or not. Then I realized how time consuming this would be. So in this post, I will be skipping the semifinals.

The big event opened with fado. As the contest was in Portugal, that was almost certain, of course. Personally I like Fado even though I don’t speak portuguese. The words also have great importance but eventually I like what I hear. But not throughout the contest. I guess Portugal dosed off a bit…

In no particular order, my top 10 countries are:

Bulgaria (I didn’t even follow where they ended up)
Finland (I kinda liked the song and found it quite catchy but I guess they finished in one of the last positions)
Denmark (This one was not my personal top 10 but thought would recieve a lot of points)
Slovenia (They performed at the beginning and brought some kind of light and energy to the stage)
Lithuania (Less is more. Needs no further explanation)
Austria (I never thought they would end up that high but still it is in my top 10)
Estonia (The costume itself deserves a top 10 but what a voice!)

…And my top 3

France (What I loved about this song was that it was so plain, nice, to the point)
Cyprus (I would be as happy if they could win. So catchy and sexy)
Israel (No need to say a word. It stucks in your brain from the first moment. I also loved her words after winning. Thank you so much for choosing the different)
