Only rankings for the national finals that I can remember clearly/have an opinion on. A space just means I like that group of songs a lot more than the next group.

I included "Bridges" because I fell in love with the live performance and it became my favourite whilst watching Eesti Laul.
Italy looks kinda brutal but I would have ranked 4 songs with :12:

Slightly OT perhaps, but the songs I'll have listened to the most when Eurovision is over are probably:
1. Vicco, Spain
2. Kuuma, Finland
3. Tiril, Norway
4. Benjamin, Finland
5. Portion Boys, Finland
6. Eyjaa, Denmark
(in that order, approximately)

None of them were close to winning their NF's really. :-/

I would give a 10 or 12 to the top 5 here. My highest rating of all the winning entries is an 8.
