  1. My ranking :
    1. PRT
    2. MDA
    3. BGR
    4. AZE
    5. HUN
    I believe it’s either BGR or PRT

  2. “Amar Pelos Dois” was performed by Salvador Sobral. Representing Portugal in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, it was written and composed by Luísa Sobral. It won with 758 points. Nominated eight times overall in ET Awards 2017, “Best Composition” is its first so far! Congratulations!”
    And best performance its second one :P

  3. Applause!
    Everyone but calculated boy Kristian was great. :)

  4. Expected and deserved. :)

  5. I voted for Hungary. I can deal with this result, all the nominees have their merits.

  6. “Former winners are: …Conchita Wurst (Austria, 2014)…”
    I didn’t remember that.
    So, out of all those excellent performances: Norway, Netherlands, Finland, Armenia etc, we, ET, voted for Conchita Wurst?!

    • I did not though. Never been a fan of “Rise Like a Phoenix”.

    • I wouldn’t exactly call Norway and especially Armenia 2014 excellent performances. I do agree though that the award should have gone to the Common Linnets!

      • I don’t think NL performers did anything but look at one another, it was the way it was shot, the backdrop, the SONG that did it more… Conchita stole the show, from an underdog to a favorite in just one show! It wasn’t my favorite performance, but I get why it won that award

        • I agree that Conchita gave a strong performance, but it was too obvious for my taste. I prefer the intimacy and subtlety of the Dutch performance. Some times less is more. No ladies in beard, no LGBT oriented stereotypes. I do understand the context of the performance though especially when there are still many homophobic countries around the world and well done to Conchita for this!

      • True. They both were actually more than excellent ;)

  7. And of course Salvador Sobral winning this is well deserved. Congratulations :-)

  8. Congratulations to Bulgaria and Azerbaijan for their nominations and great performances. Thank you both for the music and the talent. Kristian is the moral winner of this category – such amazing talent and vocal and emotional depth in that performance.

    Congrats to Joci and Sunstroke Project as well.
