Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite 

Carl Espen – Silent Storm | 8th place, 88 points (Final)

A very emotional song, with interesting lyrics. I like how the text doesn’t match the appearance of the singer. It gives it even more strength to me, because you can never judge a book by it’s cover and know what really goes on in someone else’s mind. It got a decent top-10 with it’s 8th place, but I still feel this song deserved even more.

Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite

KEiiNO – Spirit in the Sky | 6th place, 331 points (Final)

Was so close to choosing this. I remember vividly how dramatic the national final was that year and how much everyone disregarded this song. This is simply a masterpiece. Having three vastly different singers on-stage with a track that blends so well all aspects was a blessing. Norway should’ve won Eurovision 2018 by far. Biggest injustice in my book, but at least we’ll always have this incredible entry to remember it by.
