  1. 20 – One of the very best. A shock to see it do so well, but the Dutch deserved it. Always found it considerably better than Austria – my favourite from 2014, and one of the favourites of my lifetime.
    19 – Catchy, but there’s not much else to say. A messy pop song. Two points still a little harsh though.
    18 – Liked it at first, then went totally off it. Disappointed to see Malta send a rejected MelFest song anyway. 6/10.
    17 – Quality. Got a cool, relaxed vibe, and Douwe is a sophisticated, charming performer. Just outside the top-ten can be considered a success. Lovely tune, albeit a bit repetitive.
    16 – A Eurovision classic – I don’t love it as much as many however, and part of me is glad it didn’t win. But still thoroughly enjoyable.
    15 – Always going to win… a shame, as I preferred Iceland in ’09. Good song, but there have been much better winners in the contest’s history.
    14 – Same deal here really. I think Sweden’s my fifth or sixth fave from 2015. I like the song, and indeed Mans.
    13 – The juries were never going to go for this. Nowadays, this may have done a TWIN TWIN and finished last. Another catchy, contemporary entry – never had a problem with it.
    12 – Catchy again! But I find it fairly so-so otherwise. 7/10. It was about time Monika got to represent her country.
    11 – Tremendously underrated, I think her live vocals scuppered any chance of success. Sad not to see her in the final. A fine song.
