So all the entries for this year's edition have finally been chosen, and except for a couple of revamped versions still to be revealed, the pre-selection period of Eurovision 2018 is officially over and we are all eagerly waiting for May to come, but before that let's make an annual "Your Ideal Eurovision" list.

1) To make this listing fair, one requirement is that you have atleast, more or less, heard all the official entries from all national selections before, so if you haven't done that yet, please take your time to do that first and then jump to 2).

2) List, country by country, your personal pick for each country. This is your place to adjust this year's Eurovision fitting your own taste. If you agree with the chosen entry by the country, well then just write that chosen entry (preferably make a distinction between actually non-chosen ones, and chosen ones, by putting one or the other in bold or different color so that it will be easier to see where your adjustments actually occur and how much it differs from the official entries of this year's edition).

yes, and so what? xshrug

As far as song goes it was the best in their selection and this is what I'm taking into consideration here, not some performance from a lackluster badly produced local selection. We know very well that performances can turn 180 degrees from national selections to ESC, so I find it kind of pointless to judge by performances really. We can say all we want about performances, but since we will never see this on stage in ESC with a high quality production, I don't really see the point. So my list is solely about the songs, I don't take anything else into consideration here.

Ok, she was my Fav too before the Show, but I wouldnt only blame the Production since Sevak and Amaliya sounded good. For me Her Livesinging was horrible.

Maybe, but like I said I judge the studio versions. I will not go back to local performances, but I might add some tracks on my Spotify list. Of course people are free to judge differently.
