ET Awards 2017: Best Composition!


Eurovision 2017 – 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!

2017 will be the fifth year for Eurovision Times to organize a new contest (you can check 2013’s results here, the 2014’s ones here, the 2015’s ones here and the 2016’s ones here). As with the past few 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 fourth award is in the “Technical” category and it’s “Best Composition”. Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 19 Portugal
  • 14 Belgium
  • 12 Finland
  • 8 Azerbaijan
  • 5 Armenia
  • 5 Italy
  • 4 Bulgaria
  • 4 Hungary
  • 2 Belarus
  • 2 Macedonia
  • 1 Cyprus
  • 1 Czech Republic
  • 1 France

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 composition this year! You need to click on the country’s name to be redirected to the official video of the song. The nominees in alphabetical order are:

  • Azerbaijan‘ music by Isa Melikov
  • Belgium‘s music by Pierre Dumoulin & Emmanuel Delcourt
  • Finland‘s music by Lasse Piirainen & Leena Tirronen
  • Italy‘s music by Francesco Gabbani, Filippo Gabbani & Luca Chiaravalli
  • Portugal‘s music by Luísa Sobral

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. May I vote for 2? Portugal and Finland? :) I’ve got to think! Pity Hungary is not here while some controversary entries and names are ;)
    Btw faviourite ever composition ever composed for ESC in Armenia remains Gutan by Anush and Inga. Unfortunatly sisters chose more safe song for Eurovision :( Recently met great cover of the song in Youtube and found out that I’m not annoyed of it even after many listenings since 2009.

  2. Belgium, Azerbaijan, and Portugal made the cut from my list (RIP Belarus and Macedonia).

    Ugh, another hard one! It comes down to Azerbaijan and Portugal for me (I think I’ve listened to “City Lights” too much and have begun to notice every little detail in the composition, and it leaves me wanting more lol), and while I do love the relatively daring things that “Skeletons” does, the timelessness of Portugal wins… again.

  3. […] can click here to look at the full recommendations and nominations from last week’s article! There were 78 recommendations for 13 countries in the first round and 135 votes were cast in an […]
