With the official slogan of the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 being “Building Bridges,” we decided to build a Eurovision bridge of our own!

Leading all the way to Turkey, we are collaborating with our friends at the Eurovision news website, ESCin5.com!

 


 

Our Eurovision jury teams

Four members of the ESC Reporter team join four members of ESCin5 to rate all the songs of Eurovision 2015. The songs will be rated on a scale from 0 to 5, with cumulative results being added for each post to form a total ranking. With eight people voting, a song can gather a maximum of 40 points.

The voting, part 8: France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom

In the eighth and final part of our voting, we will look at the last five entries from the Grand Final and Eurovision 2015!

 

 

  • France – Lisa Angell – N’oubliez pas”

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric

    Safe song from France. Not bad and not great. Just okay.
    Score: 3

  • Kemal
    Kind of boring, but not that bad.
    Score: 3
  • Erdi
    A good French ballad from France. I loved this song just before she said that “this song is made for Armenians died in 1915” bla bla bla. Now is just ok song for me.
    Score: 3
  • Helin
    No, just no.
    Score: 1
  • Maral
    Moustache was better.
    Score: 1
  • Emma
    This song has a great message and Lisa’s voice is perfect for it.
    Score: 5
  • Tolgahan
    Boring.
    Score: 0
  • Iain
    An uninspiring ballad that I don’t think will say in the public’s mind long enough to vote for them.
    Score: 2

= Total score: 18

 


 

 

  • Germany – Ann Sophie – Black Smoke”

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric

    Good alternative to the song chosen by the German public. Should do well.
    Score: 4

  • Kemal
    Not bad at all. I like the chorus. 
    Score: 2
  • Erdi
    Actually I like this song, but when I compare it with the other songs this song stays lower in standing.
    Score: 3
  • Helin
    I started to like this song. But you know, you have to listen couple times to like it. So there is no chance for her.
    Score: 4
  • Maral
    The melody is interesting, the rhythm really catchy, and the performer has character. Awesome act, hopefully a potential winner!
    Score: 5
  • Emma
    Constantly stuck in my head, really catchy.
    Score: 4
  • Tolgahan
    I just like the chorus.
    Score: 2
  • Iain
    Another interesting voice but it verges on being shouty.
    Score: 3

= Total score: 27

 


 

  • Italy – Il Volo – Grande Amore”

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric
    Boring and won’t do well.
    Score: 0
  • Kemal
    Probably the best so far. I am wondering the new version though.
    Score: 5
  • Erdi
    Il Volooo, great Italian song. I want Italy with these kind of songs.
    Score: 5
  • Helin
    Forza Italia!!! Next winner? Why not!
    Score: 5
  • Maral
    What a powerful song! Italian language is the most romantic and simply the best language of planet Earth!
    Score: 5
  • Emma
    Technically brilliant.
    Score: 5
  • Tolgahan
    Another song that I love. A charming Italian language with beautiful music! It affects people.

    Score: 5
  • Iain
    A powerful song from Italy but it seems too familiar to gain the majority of votes.
    Score: 3

= Total score: 33

 


 

  • Spain – Edurne Amanecer”

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric
    Song has potential to be better.
    Score: 4
  • Kemal
    Unfortunately, this year Spain is no that good.
    Score: 1
  • Erdi
    It’s a song that I totally was waiting for from Spain and Edurne is just amazing.
    Score: 5
  • Helin
    I was expecting more than this. Sorry, but I don’t think that they can make top 10.
    Score: 2
  • Maral
    It will be either a masterpiece or a disaster. It all depends on singer live.
    Score: 3
  • Emma
    Powerful song and Edurne is perfect for it.
    Score: 4
  • Tolgahan
    Gorgeous Edurne and legendary “Amanecer” I hope this year Spain get a good place! Edurne deserves.
    Score: 4
  • Iain
    Another powerhouse entry from Spain – if performed well it should come top 10.
    Score: 4

= Total score: 27

 


 

  • United Kingdom – Electro Velvet – Still In Love With You”

> Artist profile

 

 

  • Eric
    Strange all around. Expect last place.
    Score: 0
  • Kemal
    Why does everybody hate this? Seriously don’t! Beautiful!
    Score: 4
  • Erdi
    Good dance song, but doesn’t deserve more.
    Score: 3
  • Helin
    Can anybody explain to me why nobody likes this song? It’s very fun!! At least it’s not a ballad! I’m happy having them in Eurovision.
    Score: 4
  • Maral
    This song will do better than most people think! Haters gonna hate hate hate.
    Score: 5
  • Emma
    Really loved it at first, but I’ve gotten sick of it quite quickly.
    Score: 3
  • Tolgahan
    Funny, but not my style. But certainly not bad!
    Score: 2
  • Iain
    A thumping electro-swing track that should stand out in a sea of ballads this year.
    Score: 5

= Total score: 26
