  • Vocals: 5,5F / 4,5M
  • It has finally happened with France leaving the Top 10 for the first time after 7 Top 3 in a row! Meaning that Israel, with its 7th Top 10 in a row can tie! Not far behind, United-Kingdom has 6 and Finland has 5! On the other hand, this is an edition of newbies and returns: Australia and Poland join for the first time, with Greece and Turkey getting only their second after being in the Top 10 in 2014 only! Iceland, likewise, was in the first three Top 10 but none since and until this one!
  • No less than 4 new HoD in the Top 10, including the Top 2, with Oxi, David, Michos and Kostas! Three Greeks among them, with Donnie and Dimitris both getting their 6th Top 10 out of 8 editions and the country winning the contest! PJ gets two Top 3 in the same summer: a new power HoD?
  • Notice how the first half of the draw completely crashed the second half in this one!

  • France returns to the Top 3 for the 8th time, so it can tie Israel’s 8 as well, and all 8 in a row! Switzerland becomes the first country since the first edition (for obvious reasons) to win without ever having been in the Top 10 before! Lebanon also joins the club and Poland gets a second 9th place in a row! For all their predicted strong results, Norway and Greece only get their third whereas often overlooked Finland manages to tie the United-Kingdom with 6!
  • 3 new HoD taste their first Top 10 with Jerry, newcomer Dominik, and never-missing-an-edition Patrick P! Michos gets a second one in a row while Dimitris secures second place with no less than 7 out of 9 editions!

10 Croatia (2) Sara Renar Tišina Bay (2) 65 #14
  • Vocals: 3.5F / 6.5M
  • Some fun facts, the winners of both ETSC 9 and 10 have 166pts; in both editions song #36 finished 7th! Finland was 6th both editions as well!
  • The draw seems divided in 5 first half, 5 second half, but then if we remember Morocco was our original 10th it is a very rare case of the second half dominating the first one. Moreover, all songs between 34th and 37th got Top 10, as well as 4 songs out of the run of 5 between 11th and 15th!
  • Like in ETSC 9, no less than 3 new HoD taste their first Top 10 with Coyote, Tehoe and Lars! Dominik, Martin, Pablo and Bay get their second as well! They join the 3 most often Top 10 HoD, who therefore repeat their success here (Morgan has 9, Dimitris 8 and Donnie 7).
  • As for countries, 3 newcomers as well with microstate San Marino surprising everyone, Slovenia who missed both 2017 editions finally breaking the curse and esc-power house Russia cracking in as well! Switzerland, Tunisia and Croatia only get their second as well. France finally retakes its lead over Israel (9 vs. 8) as Finland moves above the United-Kingdom and Denmark (7 vs. 6). All of Finland’s Top 10 entries were between 5th and 7th! More impressive, France completes its collection of medals, since this second place means it now stands at 3 golds, 3 silvers and 3 bronzes in 10 editions!

Surprise surprise: only two songs in English in the Top 10, with the two songs in French in the Top 3! German, Italian, Slovenian, Russian, Croatian and Arabic round up the rest!

  • 2 new HoDs taste their first Top 10 with Lina at her first try and Arpatilaos finally breaking it! Jerry, Patrick P, Dino and Hjallis get their second as well while Michos and Bay their third! Blind editions definitely work wonders to stir things up a bit!
  • As for countries, no new countries, however unpopular Albania, North Macedonia, Estonia and Poland get only third second or third taste of the top 10 and sometimes tie their best ever or close (Albania’s best was 5th and it’s 6th, North Macedonia ties best at 8th, Estonia beats its best ever at 9th when it only had once a 10th place and Poland had two 9th places before this new 10th place).
  • Surprise surprise: songs in English are again in minority in the Top 10!
