ET Awards 2019: Best Backdrop!


Eurovision 2019 – 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 backings and the backdrop!

2019 will be the seventh 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, the 2016’s ones here, the 2017’s ones here and the 2018’s ones here). As with the past few years, our blog hosts now three contests: TEKO which takes place before the contest and the “Eurovision Times Awards” after the contest, with “Premath/Aftermath” which compares our rankings before and 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 tenth award is in the “Delegation” category and it’s “Best Lights & Stage”. Former winners are: Hungary (2013), Switzerland (2014), France (2015), Ukraine (2016), Bulgaria (2017) and Ireland (2018). Here are the results of the recommendations made by the regular users of Eurovision Times in this category:

  • 12 Netherlands
  • 12 Switzerland
  • 9 Norway
  • 5 Austria
  • 5 Iceland
  • 4 Slovenia
  • 3 Australia
  • 3 Azerbaijan
  • 3 France
  • 3 Georgia
  • 3 Hungary
  • 3 Portugal
  • 3 Sweden
  • 2 Czech Republic
  • 2 Greece
  • 2 Ireland
  • 2 Latvia
  • 2 Malta
  • 2 Russia
  • 1 Belarus
  • 1 North Macedonia
  • 1 Romania
  • 1 Serbia
  • 1 Spain

However, it’s down to the staff of Eurovision Times to choose the official nominees, including unpopular or controversial ones! But it’s up to you to vote in our poll below which entry had the best backdrop this year! That includes the light show, camera work, as well as overall use of the stage. You need to click on the country’s name to be redirected to the video of the song. The nominees in alphabetical order are:

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 props before voting and do not vote necessarily 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!

  2. Imo Norway, The Netherlands, Iceland and Switzerland enhanced the performance immensely, Slovenias background I didn’t even notice. Not that it was bad in any way, I just didn’t think it was anything special. Damn this was a hard one, I really like all of the four above. I think I am gonna go with The Netherlands as the backdrop and his vocals worked perfectly together.
