    #1 RUSSIA (12 points)

    Sergey Lazarev - You Are The Only One

    I completely agree with the televoters this time since their #1 is also mine. Sergey delivered a memorable performance with a hell of a show! Perhaps it was a bit too gimmick-ish for the juries, especially just one year after Sweden won because of a very entertaining show? - I can also understand why juries placed this track "only" at #5 since it's very Eurovision-esque and it lacks emotions and authenticity. So why did I put this on top of my ranking in the end? - It's just so freaking catchy. That line "thunder and lightning, it's getting exciting" is just hilarious and the song always makes me wanna go crazy. I also love the Eastern European harmony in the chorus. (Middle European pop music is so effing bland and monotonous). The arrangement is also quite interesting and innovative; especially the quavers in the end of a bar. It makes the beat more exciting and faster every time. And damn, that church bell at the beginning is EVERYTHING! - An uptempo Eurovision masterpiece!

    That saddens me as well :(

    I thought that including Kazakhstan would be a great idea omso that in 2018 - when Kazakhstan hopefully debuts - I don't need to create an entire scoreboard.

    I'd like.to continue with this countdown after an edition on a yearly basis from now on ;)

    Are you happy with the overall winner?

    ^ Yeah, I understand the reason for including Kazakhstan and those other countries that haven't taken part in the time period included so far (and I'm all for additional countries joining!).

    Will comment on the result in a few days.

    The Netherlands actually ended up at #7?

    Never expected that result.

    I loved Sweden in most of the years since i'm watching so it's most likely my favorite country of all time, so i obviously love its position here!

    Kinda shocked at Germany being 2nd. Apart from Lena i don't remember someone who i really loved (well, Jamie-Lee this year probably comes second, or third, if we count Lena twice).

    Yay for Estonia, Iceland.

    And most shocking thing: Switzerland doesn't have zero points

    Great job, loved it!!
    I hope you'll do this every year from now on

    I guess I'm late again (haven't read all posts yet), but here is ...

    2 0 1 6

    A very mediocre year for me with a fantastic personal Top 5, though! The rest is pretty forgettable or uninspired or just wasn't my cup of tea.

    My voting:

    12 Ukraine - PERFECTION. 12 out of 12. 100%. GOOSEF*CKINGBUMPS.

    10 Australia - Everything about this is so haunting. SO POWERFUL. AND SHE'S SO THANKFULFOREUROVISION.

    8 Latvia - Still love it. Okay, I admit he exaggerated a little bit on stage Aminata on the couch is so cute <3

    7 Bulgaria - God I'm SOOOO happy for Bulgaria and Poli! Amazing. She reminds me of the Panem district 13 girl This could've become a mainstream hit on the charts tbh!

    6 Russia - A lot of hot guys in the couch scene (this sounds like a porn lol). I don't like how he shakes his head all the time

    5 Austria - The surprise of the year! So happy she received so many televotes!

    4 Israel - SEMI 2: HONESTLY did someone check out the three hot guys on the right side when they show the couch in the recap? LOL and the one is singing enthusiastically along, amazing

    3 Armenia - Like damn she's hot. Great performance/concept!

    2 Czechia - The 0 televoting points are a crime IMO! Strong lyrics!

    1 Azerbaijan - She didn't have a really powerful voice live ... Oh it was better in the final! Can't believe they didn't end up in the Top 10 for three years in a row!

    Notable:

    Greece - OMG the guys look so uninterested

    Finland - Sorry, she looked terrible IMO

    Poland - For me it's very interesting to see that anything can happen at Eurovision. #3 in the televoting, WOW. And we all thought it was a crime Margaret didn't go I don't think Margaret would've gone Top 3. And her vocal performance would've been a risk. She should give it another chance in 2018, though!

    Switzerland - what kind of choreography is that?

    Serbia - It bugs me that the arrangement on stage reminds me too much of Molitva.

    Italy - She is cute. This is the first year after 2011 that the Italian entry isn't really interesting to me.

    Sweden - The close-ups didn't help.

    Germany - From today's point of view: Nothing really fit together. But the song was a good one.

    Me neither! - It seems that the last years helped The Netherlands a lot! Hopefully, this trend will continue.

    Thank you ;) - That's my intention! I would love to continue with this countdown on a yearly basis. We've put so much work on it and I like to have all our Top 10s gathered in one thread ;) I am glad you also enjoyed it!

    I agree with your comment on Germany. However, it seemed that the country got a lot of smaller points during the years and my 24 pts for Lena did push it as well (+ Jamie-Lee, Cascada and I also liked Texas Lightning). Hehe.
    I really hope to see Switzerland getting some points again but I think that the country has to change its preselection process again. Have you heard the national final songs of this year? - Apart from "Gold", I can't see any of the tracks qualifying for the grand final, tbh.

    @KokoCollino

    It's a pity that you haven't posted your points a bit earlier but I am glad to see Ukraine and Australia being on top! I guess that you are very happy about the real results of Eurovision then. Latvia was a bit robbed. I am still in shock that it didn't make the Top 10. One of the best entries! - Austria was really a surprise. Even when it got selected I didn't think it would make the final but in the end, Zoe's was very charming and stunningly beautiful on stage.
    Czech Republic really should have got at least some points from the televoting... but it was also criminally underrated among the juries.

    I think it's time we started to share our Eurovision 2017 favourites by posting our Top 10s in this thread!
    2017 was the year of huge surprises: Portugal won for the very first time, Bulgaria & Moldova got their best results ever and Germany missed the Triple of finishing last by only 1 point

    So, post your Top 10 of this year and in the end, I will calculate our points together. Let's see how much will change on our "All Time Results" ;)

    Here's a little reminder of all entries of 2017:


    2017 RECAP



    Recap of the live performances:

    Note: Russia withdrew from the competition; therefore, please DON'T vote for Russia since the country didn't take part this year.

    Thank you for your votes so far! It seems that apart from Estonia being named as a favourite twice, your Top 10s are very much different.

    Even Germany got some love from Magnus My country already got more points than in the actual Eurovision final


    I will not have the chance to update this thread for some time and that's why other users still have much time to come up with their final Top 10s ;)

    It took me a while but here we go...

    #10 BELARUS (1 point)

    Naviband - Story Of My Life

    Naviband are able to get Belarus another point on my all-time ranking. In 2017, Belarus tried something new and finally submitted an authentic piece of honest and uplifting music performed entirely in Belarusian (originally titled as ""Historyja majho žyccia"). Belarus was clearly spreading good vibes during the whole performance and in the end, even though I was deliriously happy about the country having unexpectedly qualified for the final, I felt that finishing 17th was too low for this lively and joyful anthem.

    Eh, I'm not a fan of "Story of My Life". I appreciate its energy, though.

    I did the full ranking with all 408 ESC songs from this decade, but don't want to post it here.
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).

    Dreamer, you must to visit Lithuania and see/listen a live concert of your YVA strawberries.

    Same. It was one of my least faves that year.
