Our winner of Eurovision 2020 is – Iceland!
As the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest got cancelled, we still wanted to have our winner for this year. In order to do that, we are using the scores of our 14 reviewers, who are casual viewers of Eurovision and who reacted and rated each of the participating songs at the very first listening. Scores of 14 of our editors have been added to these scores in a Eurovision style, and the third vote included is the votes of our readers, from the poll that was open earlier this week. These three votes combined gave us the best song of 2020 – “Think About Things” by Daði & Gagnamagnið from Iceland.
As you already knew from the Public Reaction videos, the favorite of our reviewers was Sweden, ahead of Iceland in second and The Netherlands in third place.
To equalize the number of our reviewers, 14 of our editors voted as well – Melissa, Joe, Marco, Olivier, Ervin, Nikola, Anne, Fouad, Cain, David, Kyle, Nick, Matt and Jan.
Our readers had a chance to vote for up to five songs of the 26 finalists in our poll that was open for four days. The results were kept secret, but we can now reveal the full results of the poll:
Russia topped our poll with 10.86% of the votes, which gave them 76 points. They were followed by Lithuania in second place (9.44% of the votes = 66 points) and Iceland in third place (8.14% of the votes = 57 points).
Overall, Iceland finished on the top of our scoreboard with 248 points – 26 points ahead of the second placed Russia. Lithuania, Italy and Sweden complete the top five. You can re-watch the entire voting right here:
