TOP FIVE COUNTRIES TO WIN

Brent Davidson
By Brent Davidson, 18th May 2015
It's that time of year again! Just when you thought you’d finally gotten the glitter out of the carpet and the sequins out of your hair, get ready for Eurovision 2015! This year we'll be ‘Rising Like Phoenixes’ as we head to Vienna for what is the competition's 60th anniversary.

As such, it comes down to SWITCH’s resident Eurovision die-hard aficionado to fill you in what his top picks for this years competition. Not only does Brent listen to this music unironically, but he will be on the ground for this year's competition.

Hello Vienna – SWITCH calling!

NADAV GUEDJ - GOLDEN BOY
5. NADAV GUEDJ - GOLDEN BOY (ISRAEL)
This is going to cause some contention among those out there, as this song has probably a small chance of even placing. But in what is, by Eurovision standards, a very serious year, this song stands out for its fun upbeat and most Eurovision-like song. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and is all about fun – just like the competition itself! Nadav is like Israels answer to Chris Brown, the self-proclaimed “King of Fun” and with some “smooth” moves he will definitely get the party started. Look out for his shoulder-shaking signature move, which I may (or may not) be practicing for when he competes.
AMINATA SAVADOGO - LOVE INJECTED
4. AMINATA SAVADOGO - LOVE INJECTED (LATIVA)
The first thing that will strike you about Aminata’s ‘Love Injected’ is how unique and beautifully unusual her voice is. After that you’ll see how beautiful she is (I’m not just smitten because she liked two of my instagram posts). If she can pull off a flawless vocal performance in a stunning dress we're sure to have all the ingredients for a Eurovision smash hit.
LOÏC NOTTET - RHYTHM INSIDE
3. LOÏC NOTTET - RHYTHM INSIDE (BELGUIM)
Sounding very much like a song by Lorde, the Belgian entry this year is dark and brooding with a killer chorus. Its combination of stripped back drum and beat in a stark contrast to the almost hyper-instrumentalised chorus makes it stand out from the pack. I’ve not been able to stop singing this one, and with words that the whole world can remember, who wouldn’t want to find their ‘Rhythm Inside’ as the wise man says - “We gonna ra pa pa, ra papa we gonna ra pa pa tonight.”
GUY SEBASTIAN - TONIGHT AGAIN
2. GUY SEBASTIAN - TONIGHT AGAIN (AUSTRALIA)
The most controversial choice of the lot, and not because of some deep-seated patriotism, this song has everything that a good Eurovision tune needs. It's catchy, it's up beat, it has a hook of “Oooh’s” everyone can sing along too. In a year ruled by ballads, Guy’s song stands out from the pack, and a good thing too. With this being the first time ever Australia has been allowed to compete it was not the time for us to blend into the pack. This song perfectly encapsulates my (and I’d hazard a lot of Australians) feelings about competing. We might not be back again, so let's make the most of the night and show the world how to party. People might not have been too happy with the choice of Guy, but he has undoubtedly done us proud, and will do us proud come the 24th of May. It’s a historic moment for both Eurovision and Australia – so turn it up!
MÅNS ZEIMERLÖW - HEROES
MÅNS ZEIMERLÖW - HEROES (SWEDEN)
Upbeat? Decent message? Leather pants? What more could you want from a Eurovision song? The answer is not much. Måns has created an anthem that will no doubt resound throughout the stadium, the streets of Vienna and the world itself. There is very little to fault in this track and it's almost too good to waffle on and praise - just listen, dance and enjoy. All I can say is I have a strong feeling you’ll be seeing this reporter in Stockholm next year – and he couldn’t be happier!
