Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite
Minus One – Alter Ego | 21st place, 96 points (Final)
Bring on the guitars! Yes, I know for the real rock-lovers, this tune is probably a bit too slick and commercial. Therefore it might not have scored as well in the final, as hoped. It lacked some genuinity and appeared to be focussed a bit too much on being suitable for Eurovision. That being said, I am a Eurovision fan, so I can really appreciate this song and know it word by word. It is still on my playlist, which is not the case for all the 2016-songs. Time to admit: Personally I still like this song.
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
Eleni Foureira – Fuego | 2nd place, 436 points (FInal)
Was so torn to pick this or Stronger Every Minute. Anyways, Fuego is incredible! Should’ve won in my opinion. She is an icon that has the whole package. The song is a meme of itself. When you reach that level of iconic, then you know it’s a song that will remain a Eurovision treasure.
