Glad 2017 was such a great year for you! :D

There are a handful of songs in the poll that I think have a great shot to win, but I went with "Despacito".
And the category is: LIVE. WORK. POSE!

I love "New Rules" and "Swish Swish", went with the first one in the poll. But i'm not sure how big its chances are to top your YEC, i think one of the latin-inspired tracks will make it. They were huge on your charts this year.

Really looking forward to the countdown! :)

:lol: :lol:

It's the first and only ESC entry in this chart. I just think the song is really sweet and started to appreciate it when I was in Lisbon this Summer and heard it on the radio there.

Definitely a few in the missed out list I thought would be higher, surprised Scared of the Dark missed out!

Great to see John, Niall, Dua, Kelly, Alessia. Thought I would be one of the only ones to chart 'Either Way' and also good to see 'First Time' which I think will miss out on many charts.
