Over the last week, the ESC United readers and followers were given the opportunity to vote for their favorites songs in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Today, we are going to share the results with you from the first Semi-Final.
The first Semi, which will take place on Tuesday, May 14th 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel, will feature 17 countries battling it out for the 10 Final spots, which means that seven will fail to qualify from the Semis. While we don’t know for sure who will make the cut, at least we can start speculating. So the ESC United readers voted and over 7,000 people voted in our poll.
Here are the results, keep in mind that this is based on the Music videos and/or National Final performance. The Staging at Eurovision can significantly change things up so take the results with a grain of salt.
But if you can believe the results, then Tamta from Cyprus will win the first Semi, she received more votes than any other entry. Her Replay has been highly popular within the Eurovision community, only time will tell if the average viewer will agree. But we can surely expect a fantastic Staging from the team.
But there is plenty of competition and plenty of time to catch up to Tamta. Not too far behind Cyprus is their friend Greece as Katerine Duska managed to win over the hearts of the fans all across the globe. Her song “Better Love” is considered by many as a contemporary pop song that has everything to give Greece another great result at the contest.
Wrapping up the top three this time around is Belgium, a country that has become a forceful power at Eurovision, despite not qualifying in 2018 from the Semis. Eliot impressed a lot of people with his entry “Wake Up”. So it’s looking good for Belgium, but can they keep it up? Only time will tell.
