ET Awards 2015: Best Female vocals!


Eurovision Times Awards 2015Eurovision 2015 – This year we resume the “Eurovision Times Awards” to give prizes (the Fridas) for the best in every category! And you get to vote! Today, we open up the polls with the two “best vocals” categories!

2015 will be the second year for Eurovision Times to organize a new contest (you can check 2013’s results here and the 2014’s ones here). As with the past couple of years, our blog hosts now two contests: TEKO which takes place before the contest and the “Eurovision Times Awards” after the contest. The principle of the ET Awards is simple, in each categories, the staff of this website will nominate a few entries per categories and open polls for the public to vote in them so we can reveal afterwards all the winners. The winners recieve an imaginary trophee, entitled the Fridas in hommage to Frida Boccara, the French Eurovision winner in 1969 with “Un jour, un enfant“.

The first award is in the “Technical” category and it’s “Best Female Vocals”. Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 19 Latvia
  • 12 France
  • 4 Russia
  • 4 Serbia
  • 3 Czech Republic
  • 3 Slovenia
  • 2 Hungary
  • 2 Portugal
  • 1 Greece

However, it’s down to the staff of Eurovision Times to choose the official nominees. But it’s up to you to vote in our poll below which song had the best female vocals this year! You need to click on the country’s name to be redirected to the video of the song. The nominees in alphabetical order are:

  • France‘s Lisa Angell at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Latvia‘s Aminata Savadogo at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Portugal‘s Leonor Andrade at the Second Semifinal

 

 

  • Russia‘s Polina Gagarina at the Grand Final

 

 

 

  • Serbia‘s Bojana Stamenov at the First Semifinal

 

 

 

Rules: the polls will be open for a week. At the end of the week, an article will announce the winner of the category but not the detailed results. The full results will however be given to you once all polls are closed so that you don’t get influenced (we never know) in your following votes. Every IP gets only one vote, please do not cheat, do take in consideration to listen very careful to the vocal performances before voting and do not vote necessarly for your favorite song but vote regarding to the category. Of course, it’s pointless to vote only for your own country unless you’re really certain it should win. May the best win!

  1. For fairness, I won’t say for which I have voted!

  2. Latvia!Russia and France had very strong vocals.Bojana definitely wasn’t among the top-5 best female vocal performances,imo.Marjetka on the other hand gave a great vocal performance.

  3. Is anyone looking at this in Firefox? In Safari it works, but in Firefox I can no longer see polls, or the 5 star rating thing at the top. Can anyone else say if there are problems for them?

  4. Oooooooh shiny new poll graphics! :)

    Thank you ET staff for nominating my recommendation of Serbia. <3

  5. while more than 20 votes were cast already, it’s a two-horse race who are neck and neck and already many votes ahead of the other three!

  6. Ok, it helped to isolate their voices by not looking at the performance at the same time and using this method I came up with this:

    1. Latvia: So freaking good, so solid with the vocals and you could just lay back and relax when you listen to her all day long.

    2. Serbia: Ok I really want to pick Bojana, her voice and vocal technics are awesome but her live on the grand final made me pick Aminata instead.

    3. France: 98 % flawless and an amazing singer, but she could maybe have picked a song with more harder vocal tecnics in it.

    (The top three is imo the best and it was hard to pick a winner, they all deserve the price for different reasons)

    4. Russia: I was surprised when I heard Polina. It did absolutely not sound flawless and I believe her Charisma and feeling on stage made it all sound much better.

    5. Portugal: Cute attempt and a good performance on an average song :) But her voice trembled a tad to much for my vocal taste.

  7. Voted for Latvia though I leaned towards France as well. Both were spine tingling.

  8. Very tough category. Voted for Aminata. Good luck to all five ladies.

  9. now with more than 50 votes, it’s still a two-horse race but at least every singer now at least got a vote! :)

  10. All 5 singers gave great vocal performances. Well done ET!
    Unfortunately, I could only vote for one. :(

  11. Difficult choice, but I voted for Polina Gagarina. She surely gave everything she had, and it was a very homogeneous performance.

    However, I would probably have voted for Molly Sterling if I could. She is not technically good, but she made it personal.

  12. Torn between France and Latvia, but in the end I voted for the one who had the stronger presentation. May the best one win! :-)

  13. Lisa Angell got my vote. :) (This was a very difficult choice)

    P.S. – Morgan, it’s Leonor Andrade not Andrada.

  14. Tough decision… Aminata!

  15. latvia by far. everything about her is perfect.

  16. Latvia by MILES!
    France comes second but it was not a difficult song (technically) to begin with…

  17. Such an obvious vote. Aminata brought soul, personality and vocal prowess and stood head and shoulders above the rest of the pack (though the plinth helped with that too).

    The other nominees were all technically strong (except maybe Bojana, who went very shrieky at points) but sounded a little too ‘perfect’.

  18. That is Aminata all the way. The perfect lovechild of Rona and Loreen.

  19. Voted for Aminata, though both Lisa and Leonor tempted me.

  20. Voted for Latvia. A song I hardly noticed before watching the performance in semi 2.

  21. My choice was between Russia and France :)

  22. I know this is a difficult category to pick nominees for, but still I am quite perplexed.

    No matter how well Latvia sang, her voice is still quite unpleasant to my ears. And Portugal’s inclusion seems a bit of a stretch as well. She really wasn’t that good.

    On the other hand Greece deserved to be nominated as she was probably the only one who qualified mainly because of her voice (I am talking about the semi – I thought she was a little breathy in the final). I am also surprisd that no-one -including myself- nominated Georgia. I thought she was pretty good.

    As things stand, I think I will vote for France…

  23. […] can click here to look at the full recommendations and nominations from last week’s article! There were 50 recommendations for 9 countries in the first round and 174 votes were cashed in an […]
