It’s time to continue our countdown of the top 50 national final entries from 2019, as voted for by #YOU, our faithful viewers and readers! Time to see who finished between 45th and 41st place…
45 🇫🇷 Chimène Badi – Là-haut
The first of a number of entries from France’s Destination Eurovision, La-haut impressed with its stomping powerful pop sound, its eye-catching staging and a strong vocal performance from Chimène – a well-known performer in her country – collectively giving us a track that certainly would’ve done no shame to France in Tel Aviv.
44 🇵🇹 Matay – Perfeito
With a track that wouldn’t sound out of place in a Disney soundtrack, Matay’s impassioned and charismatic performance of the soothing piano ballad “Perfeito” certainly caught the eye of our readers, voting him into 44th place in this year’s countdown. While not enough to overtake Conan Osíris, the performance was both a visual and aural treat.
43 🇬🇧 Jordan Clarke – Freaks
One of the three superfinalists in the United Kingdom’s selection process this year, Jordan Clark assumed the role of ringmaster for this performance. With a song that many had likened to Panic! at the Disco turned pop, Jordan’s likeable stage persona almost endeared the British audience to go for the unorthodox and celebrate the “Freaks” in 2019.
42 🇲🇪 Andrea Demirović – Ja sam ti san
In a bid to return to the Eurovision stage after ten years, Andrea Demirović brought us a powerful electro entry in “Ja sam ti san”, the front-runner and favourite in the Montenegrin selection. Despite the local voters not making the same choice, her entry resonated with many of our readers and is the only Montenegrin entry to make this countdown.
41 🇪🇪 Stefan – Without You
After impressing with his performance as part of Vajé in 2018, Stefan returned to the Eesti Laul stage this year with the piano/pop ballad “Without You”, and brought us a dramatic, emotional performance in the final in Tallinn. Despite reaching the final three, it wasn’t to be his year, but the impression he left on fans ensured his place in this countdown and leaves us hoping it’ll be third time lucky in 2020!
Come back on Sunday to see which songs finished between 40th and 36th place in this year’s countdown!
