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
Joci Pápai – Origo | 8th place, 200 points (Final)
Usually I am not into rap-music and only a small segment of rap could turn me away from a song. But in this case, the combination of ethnic music, dancing and the rap-part (Sumarai!) coming out of nowhere makes this song very unique. Papai Joci gives such a convincing performance, what’s not to like?
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
AWS – Viszlát nyár | 21st place, 93 points (Final)
Even though this was quite a divisive entry, I actually really liked it! Was such a risk from Hungary, but one that paid off in the end. Always open to different types of music, might not download them but have major respect for this entry. Loved the pyro on-stage too!
