Eurovision 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 resume the polls with the two categories focused on the actual songs!
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 third award is in the “Technical” category and it’s “Best Lyrics”. Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:
- 8 Norway
- 6 Ireland
- 6 Latvia
- 4 Belgium
- 4 France
- 3 Israel
- 3 Romania
- 2 Czech Republic
- 2 Montenegro
- 1 Austria
- 1 Estonia
- 1 Germany
- 1 Italy
- 1 Sweden
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 lyrics this year! You need to click on the country’s name to be redirected to the official lyrics of the song (and translation if needed). The nominees in alphabetical order are:
- France‘s N’oubliez Pas by Laure Izon & M. Albert
- Ireland‘s Playing With Numbers by Greg French & Molly Sterling
- Latvia‘s Love Injected by Aminata Savadogo
- Romania‘s De La Capat by Calin Gavril Goia, Gabriel Constantin, Adrian Cristescu, Paduraru Silviu-Marian, Alstani Victor-Razvan, Monica-Ana Stevens & Andrei-Madalin Leonte
- Norway‘s A Monster Like Me by Kjetil Mørland
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 lyrics 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!
