CelebMix’s Favourite Contestants From The Eurovision Song Contest 2018

We’ve got 10 days to go until the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 Grand Final kicks off. There are 43 countries in the competition this year, making it difficult for us to decide on our favourites. A vote was cast amongst our Eurovision team, here at CelebMix, with some surprising results.

Next week is Eurovision Week, with the semi-finals taking place on 8 May and 10 May to whittle the contestants down for the Grand Final on 12 May 2018. The shows will be held at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, Portugal.

Check out our facts and stats article on all 43 countries competing and their representatives.

When all the acts were announced, our Eurovision Team voted for their favourites. Our points were combined in the hope to create a CelebMix Top 10. Our music taste is extremely varied, and we proved this with our votes, as the acts that placed sixth and eleventh just had one point between them.

So this year, we will present our top five in points order. The remaining six will be listed in alphabetical order. All 11 acts included in our Top 10 are representatives we will be backing to win this year. Last year, we had the winner amongst our list, we’re hoping we have this year’s winner in this list too. Not only that but six of our favourites made the Top 11, will we do even better this year around?

Here Are Our Top Five Favourites To Win The Eurovision Song Contest 2018:

1) Cyprus: Eleni Foureira – Fuego

2) Czech Republic: Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me

3) Australia: Jessica Mauboy – #We Got Love

4) Switzerland: ZiBBZ – Stones

5) Finland: Saara Aalto – Monsters

Here Are Out 6th to 11th Favourites In Alphabetical Order:

France: Madame Monsieur – Mercy

Germany: Michael Schulte – You Let Me Walk Alone

Italy: Ermal Meta & Fabrizio Moro – Non mi avete fatto niente

Slovenia: Lea Sirk – Hvala, ne!

Spain: Amaia & Alfred – Tu Canción

Sweden: Benjamin Ingrosso – Dance You Off

After having all these songs on repeat, our Eurovision Team’s opinions may have changed. We reckon staging is going to be extremely important this year; if any of the 43 acts have a massive stage production, they might just be crowned the winner of Eurovision 2018.
