  1. Good news! I voted for San Marino but Moldova’s great performance overall deserves at least one award! Congrats!!!
    PS : How on earth did SVN win back in 2014?!

  2. for all that was said on Sweden’s treadmills, I think it wouldnt have worked without the dancers/singers, so I voted Sweden! looks like Sweden’s last chance for a Frida this year is most overrated ;)

  3. I don’t agree with the result because i think Sweden’s dancers were more prominent and important for the final result than Moldova’s brides.

  4. Well it was between Sweden and Bulgaria, but imo Sweden so deserved this tbh! They saved Robin completely from utter failure!

    • Moldova I mean, so sorry lol

    • Off topic, but with ETSC approaching, remember that I have lauded your two song choices in the last two editions and voted them high. You got expectations if you want me to be your Cyprus to your Greece! :P

      • Haha lol, well I kinda failed in fdlc later, so you never know with me, either its a flop or a success, hopefully the latter!
        More like your Moldova to my Romania as I havn’t really voted so much for you I think ehe ;P

  5. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

    Moldova put on a great show and not short by the backings as well.

  6. Obvios and well-deserved winner. Moldova would have done much worse without those fantastic backing ladies. And I still think that the crazy bit they chose for the recap brought Moldova into 3rd place in the end. The ladies played a crucial part in that bit. Plus, I always support people who can shake it while holding a tune. And yes, I am looking at you, Slavko …

  7. Nice to see Moldova win a Frida! :D

  8. Deserved. :)

  9. I voted for Sweden but Moldova deserved it too :)
    The best winners so far are Belgium ’15 and ’16.

  10. Meh! I voted for Sweden
