Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite
Roger Cicero – Frauen regier’n die Welt | 19th place, 49 points (Final)
So underrated. I really wonder what the result would have been for the late Roger Cicero (he passed away in 2016), if we already had the 50/50 system we have nowadays. Rumour has it he was in the top-5 of the back-up jury results. In these years those results were not used, and thus also not published. But it wouldn’t surprise me. It was a classy act, non-Eurovision and very, very jury-friendly. I can also understand how this became Anita’s favourite German song.
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
Lena – Satellite | 1st place, 246 points (Final)
Was not the biggest fan of this song initially but this song got some serious airplay where I live and from all my non-ESC friends this is their big favourite. Iconic entry, Lena is just incredible in all regards and this song is still catchy as heck! Deserved to win, looking back now.
