ET Awards 2017: Best Male Style!


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 style!

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 seventh award is in the “Artistic” category and it’s “Best Male Style”. Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 11 Italy
  • 10 Sweden
  • 9 Bulgaria
  • 8 Hungary
  • 8 Israel
  • 7 Moldova
  • 5 Portugal
  • 4 Austria
  • 4 Norway
  • 3 Australia
  • 1 Estonia
  • 1 Montenegro
  • 1 Romania

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 entry had the best male style 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:

  • Bulgaria‘s Kristian Kostov at the Grand Final
  • Hungary‘s Joci Pápai at the Grand Final
  • Israel‘s IMRI at the Grand Final
  • Italy‘s Francesco Gabbani at the Grand Final
  • Sweden‘s Robin Bengtsson at the Grand Final

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 watch very careful to the style 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. No big surprises in the nominations. Another award where Lynn and I had the same nominee!

  2. the males were so much better in everything this year (vocals and style), hence why Belgium is the only female entry in the top 10 this year (plus Romania’s female yodeling)… followed by NL (vocals) and France (look) in the top 12…

    anyway, Austria, Australia, Montenegro, Portugal and even Ireland could have gotten a nod here!

  3. Imri is hot but since this award is not about looks but style, I voted for someone else …

  4. Bulgaria.

  5. I’m not a fan of Robert Bengtsson, but a fan of his style.

  6. My recommendations were Italy, Sweden and Israel. I voted for Italy.

    As for the worst I had Croatia’s awful contraption, Cyprus’ ugly jacket and Spain’s hawaiian irrelevance.

  7. As for Bulgaria, agender minimalism tries to pass as sophisticated but it is just dull and uninspired.

  8. Out of these, I would probably say Hungary. But there is nothing about these five that really strikes me as remarkable. As for Sweden: For me a suit and a tie pretty much represents the ideal of decency that my parents were rebelling against in the late 60’s and 70’s, and I am of course influenced by their values in many respects.

    • Not all suits look the same. Sweden’s suit was very elegant (like Italy’s) and the colour is gorgeous (and quite the opposite of conservative). What turned me off was all the rings he was wearing, as if he was trying to pass for a crime boss or something.

  9. I know it’s image limiations, but do remember Hungary’s final and semifinal look are different.

  10. Italy!I really like Sweden and Hungary(outfit in the final) too.IMRI wore the pefect outfit for his song and one that complimented his assets so it was a successful choice.

  11. Tbh they all looked good, but I had to narrow it down to Israel and Sweden. I chose the more edgy one, which was Israel obviously.

  12. Btw, that is not what Fransesco wore in the grand final:

    This suit he wore has the rainbow stripes and not the dots on it, which is represented here!

  13. Hungary got my vote eventually :-)

  14. Torn between Hungary and Italy.
    Norway deserved a nomination here :(

  15. Voted for Hungary, the style fit the song perfectly.

  16. 3/5 this time, glad to see Hungary, Bulgaria, and Italy getting the nods. I’m not sure I get the inclusion of Israel or (especially) Sweden, especially ahead of Moldova, but that’s just me, I guess.

    If I was picking based on what I’d wear, my vote would go to Italy’s suit. Nevertheless, the outfit that best lifted the performer, and therefore the entry, gets my vote. Congrats, Bulgaria!

  17. It’s between Bulgaria and Italy for me and Bulgaria gets my vote.

  18. […] can click here to look at the full recommendations and nominations from last week’s article! There were 72 recommendations for 13 countries in the first round and 162 votes were cast in an […]
