Tonight was supposed to be the night. The grand of Eurovision 2020 would take place and we'd learn the successor to Duncan Laurence. Alas, that's not the case. Of course, Eurovision 2020 is no more. Therefore, we'll never be able to definitively distinguish the tops from the flops.
However, the spirit of the 2020 contest remains very much alive. And you all still have your favourites. Precisely who would have won is anyone's guess. But who did you want to see make it? Eurovision 2020 favourites We asked you to vote for your Eurovision favourites. And after counting a total of 35,644 votes for 41 acts, the results are in. Switzerland's Gjon's Tears has emerged on top. The "Répondez-moi" crooner secured 5,311 votes. Here's how our Esma described the entry: Douze points pour la Suisse! Switzerland has chosen a piece of subtle and stunning art by selecting Gjon for Eurovision. "Répondez-moi" is a mystical and deep song that has been under my skin since the day it's been released. The song is an impeccable combination of string instruments, choirs and Gjon's flawless vocals which take my breath away every time I listen to this masterpiece. Gjon's talent is able to touch people their souls by means of his music – something only a great artist is capable of. In second place, we have Italy's Diodato with "Fai Rumore". The Sanremo 2020 winner amassed an impressive 4,254 votes. In his Wiwi Jury review, William writes: The soft verses of Diodato's "Fai rumore" have an intoxicating quality. It's as if he's chatting to you while singing, drawing you in before holding you captive in the gentlest way possible. When the chorus explodes out of nowhere it's a shock to the system — he's unable to keep it in any longer, and you just want to clap your hands while he lets it all out. The song feels cathartic and the bridge like an epiphany. It may be in Italian, but the power here is universal. My winner of 2020. Snatching the bronze medal is Serbia's Hurricane. The "Hasta La Vista" trio amassed 3,130 votes. In the Wiwi Jury, William says: The Weather Channel is not ready for this Hurricane! Sanja, Ivana, and Ksenija are stand-out vocalists on their own. Put them together and it's time to issue a warning. This is loud. This is sexy. As intoxicating as those Sirens from Greek myth, this Serbian threesome unleash a wall of sound, harmony and sass that speeds by as fast as a hipster after a slice of avocado on toast. These ladies stomp so hard — and bend and snap and twerk — that it's no surprise they're wearing shattered glass. But trust: this ain't broken. Put it all together and you have the dance banger of the year. Rounding out the top five is Greece's Stefania and Lithuania's The Roop. The top ten is completed by Iceland's Daði og Gagnamagnið, Bulgaria's Victoria, Malta's Destiny, Russia's Little Big and Norway's Ulrikke. Check out the full results below.
