2000 and Whatever – France

We may not get to see our 2020 favourites take to the stage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reminisce on our Eurovision favourites. This series is aimed to discover the team’s favourite entries from the 21st century, from 2001 to 2019.

In collaboration with Eurovision Union, we will be reviewing some of their 21st Century favourites, while over on their site, you will find their reviews of our favourites!

Below our reviews, you will find a poll where you can vote for your favourite Eurovision entry from the 21st Century.


Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Twin Twin – Moustache | 26th place, 2 points (Final)

Is this a prank? Picking ‘Moustache’ as your favourite entry for France? Ok, the song is fun to listen to in the studio version and lends itself for great parodies.. Not more than that. And the live performance was just… awful. Most painful was the part where the lead singer starts yelling and screaming to the audience, asking them to shout TWIN TWIN, when he said so. The cricket sounds when he decided to do it, without any response at all, made it one of the all-time low’s at Eurovision.

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

Jessy Matador – Allez Ola Olé | 12th place, 82 points (Final)

This song has aged really well. Obviously meant to be a football anthem but it worked well on-stage at Eurovision also. Still one of the most viewed Eurovision videos on YouTube and it’s just a great, fun entry by France! Kudos to you, France!
