Valentina is so sweet and deserved it. Almost every song had the children acting like adults but France's song was cheerful, sugary and fun. I think that's what it should be about really. You're only young once. Enjoy it. It was the clear standout. Congratulations France.
France winning at something ESC related, can you believe it ?
Anyway, while it wasn't my personal favorite, I'm glad she won. The quality of her song didn't downgrade when it went on stage, and we need something joyful for once. I hope it will set the mark for more uptempo songs in the ESC internal selection/NF contestants.
I don't know much about the playback thing, but I'm sure Arina and Valentina would have still done very well without it but sometimes it really sounded like Belarus and France used playback - probably they are just too good. I hope it is just a temporary move and I also hope that in 2021 everything goes back to normal in every possible way.
I was rooting for - I was blown away by her emotional, genuine and touching performance, Karakat was just amazing, but congrats to Valentina and - sweet, joyful and appropriate song
I hope to see these fake comments like Eastern Europeans rigged the Online Voting vanish and fade away now.
Seriously, all these bitter gheys tried to take away some dignity and pride from Poland's first two victories in Eurovision ever. I hope that Poland being part of the bottom 5 proves that the current voting is fair and actually DOES work for a concept like JESC.
I was hoping for Spain, Belarus, Kazakshtan to win (and Ukraine to do better since I honestly enjoyed that song) but I'm happy for France! They've waited so long for receiving another trophy in the Eurovision universe + it's a cute, joyful and well-produced/composed song for children.
Germany finishing last was inescapable. Our entry was the worst and least exciting or interesting one. I feel bad for Susan, in general, and I just hope that KiKa (our German broadcaster) will not use this outcome as an excuse to withdraw from the competition. We just need to either come up with a powerful and memorable ballad or a catchy and well-produced bop... It's a pity Susan got another "Perfect Life", "Black Smoke" or "Sister" to represent us.. basic, inoffensive songs do not work in Eurovision.. I'm acutally quite mad that Germany still hasn't learnt a single thing from the 00's and 10's....
