Welcome to the PokéCommunity
Eurovision Song Contest Event 2023!


It's that time again... Eurovision! The 67th edition of the annual music competition will be hosted in Liverpool, United Kingdom on behalf of last year's winners Ukraine, who unfortunately can't host due to the ongoing invasion of their country. The 2023 contest will feature two semi-finals on the 9th and 11th of May, and then the grand final on 13th May.

37 entries will compete for the title this year. From last year's 40 contestants, Bulgaria, Montenegro and North Macedonia have all withdrawn, citing mainly economic reasons.



Eurovision was originally created to foster love, peace, and understanding between people from different cultures, and without borders. To celebrate this, we will assign each poster a random participating country to adopt for the duration of the event, to bring us all closer together! Simply post anything in this thread, and I'll assign you a country!

No matter what part of the world you're from, feel free to show love towards your fellow humans by displaying your assigned country somewhere in your profile or signature (not compulsory of course!)



You can also let us know your favourite songs (in order and no more than 10 please) from the 37 entries in the second post. The song with the most points at the end of the ESC event will be crowned the PokéCommunity Eurovision Champion!

***We will possibly be having other activities / quizes etc. as well, but - as I will be attending Eurovision this year - I haven't quite figured everything out just yet! Keep an eye out in this thread for the latest info!***



You are welcome to chat about anything Eurovision related in this thread, and please remember to vote once you've heard all the songs and have whittled your list down to no more than 10!

We had joint champions last year - The Rasmus representing Finland with their song Jezebel, and Austria who were represented by LUM!X feat. Pia Maria performing Halo! We look forward to seeing who you award the grand prize to in 2023!

If you have any questions, then please don't hesitate to contact me!

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Your call has been forwarded to an automatic voice message system Please record your message Ah, I don't know where you are Or what you're up to I kinda miss you girl right now You know, the old days and stuff? I want you to be here, with me Just call me back when you get this message okay? Tell me more about me, you, us Tell me you love me, baby More than I trust And I just want to know: How do you feel about us Right now? I don't know if I'm someone or someone is me I'm running from the fate and I'm giving up my dream I'm carrying all the pain And the sorrow that's in vain All the games you think I play Are my ways of staying sane I shout it from the hills up high I've nothing – only tears to cry If I ever learn again to feel the way I did I'll die from the emotions that I kept down for years, baby Tell me more about me, you, us Tell me you love me, baby More than I trust And I just want to know: How do you feel about us Right now? I want to buy a land a thousand miles away From the city that I've never even chosen I think the reason why is all because of people Who treat you like a fool and make you wonder for the reason Now is the time I am passing by the streets And the places that we used to go to We thought we'd be back pretty soon but never did And distance between you and me gets so damn more Let me tell you one thing, baby It may change your all thoughts about us And you won't need to worry again, too So, let me tell you if you're ready Hear me out, baby: let's go crazy I have something that you're looking for And that is love Love Love Tell me more about me, you, us Tell me you love me, baby More than I trust And I just want to know: How do you feel аbout uѕ Right now?

Lyrics
English Lyrics: This exhausting week and the many long days are behind There's only bar and piña colada on my mind There is some time for a few, the night is still youngish This icy shell is something I have to demolish Holding on the drinks with both hands tied on them like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no There's no tomorrow when I grab a pint tightly like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no Wanna mess my head up and to free my mind of fear like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no And I stay on this seat until I have to climb off it like a A couple piña coladas I have devoured Yet the expression I have on my face is sour, yeah yeah ye ye yeh There is some time for a few, the night is still youngish This icy shell is something I have to demolish The floor is calling me when I'm no longer so frozen Like a cha cha cha I am approachin' Holding on the drinks with both hands tied on them like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no There's no tomorrow when I grab a pint tightly like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no Wanna mess my head up and to free my mind of fear like a Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha, no And I stay on this seat until I have to climb off it like a whoa I head towards the dance floor Like a cha cha cha And this world ain't making me scared no more Like a cha cha cha When Champagne all over myself I pour Cha cha cha One eye keeps turning crossed too far And talking is so hard when this different side of me does its part Cha cha cha I don't usually go and drop my guard, not me But now I am that guy, now I am that guy I head towards dance floor Like a cha cha cha And this world ain't making me scared no more Like a cha cha cha When Champagne all over myѕelf I pour Like a cha cha cha Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha aha Like a cha cha cha Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha Cha cha cha cha cha cha chа

Lyrics
English Lyrics: My heart, my hand, my eyes, my hips Nothing's mine anymore I kill myself to give them life And act like it was nothing In my hell garden The plants are watered with the dreams and tears Even at the top of the highest mountain You still can't touch the sky Obviously All these promises I hear are passing Like the wind Obviously It's always quiet before the storm Don't you forget It's always too good to be true But never too ugly to be unreal Obviously This girl little that I was Will never be the same I trade my future, to get my past back But time is treacherous I look for love but never find it Like a lost key It's not clear in my head I want the truth but I keep avoiding it You might be on the top of the world Still your finger won't touch the sky Obviously All these promises I hear are passing Like the wind Obviously This girl little that I was Will never be the same Because I sing My life and yours, a little romance As I stand naked before you Give me a chance From you to me, from me to you Didn't I succeed singing the Great France It's always too good to be true But never too ugly to be unreal Obviously This girl little that I was Will never be the sаme Obviouѕly

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Blood and glitter Sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter What we are is but a choice A promise to ourselves We are free to break and change Never forget? Let it go This or that? No need to know Whether above or below We are all from the same blood Blood and glitter, sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter, sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter, saint and sinner We do fall before we rise Now go, go Let your blood flow, flow With broken wings, we'll learn to fly We are blood and glitter Keep your head up in the clouds With two feet on the ground Life's too fast so make it count Never forget? Let it go This or that? No need to know Whether above or below We are all from the same blood Blood and glitter, sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter, saint and sinner We do fall before we rise Now go, go Let your blood flow, flow With broken wings, we'll learn to fly We are blood and glitter Let your blood flow Blood and glitter Let your blood flow Blood and glitter, sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter, sweet and bitter We're so happy we could die Blood and glitter, saint and sinner We do fall before we rise Now go, go Let your blood flow, flow With broken wingѕ, we'll learn to fly We are blood and glitter Blood аnd glitter

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Late August Feet start to shake heart starts to ache Can't focus Panic I lay on the floor and I hate That I'm holding on My lungs'll break can't stop to make My mind up Time starts to rain clouds not afraid Of the pain they're giving Anxious the way I'm breathing Can't say that I am longing for Another day to break my spirit Insane and I can tell who's winning Wish this was something I could just ignore Well you know what they say Lost souls make sure no one loses their way Hurt ones can't stand seeing others in pain Oh I am both now I got too much on my plate And I save all the others cause for me it's too… Nostalgic mind I miss the days when my heart wouldn't ache and I'm drowning, time Quicksand of life, we don't live to die Now I'm tryna, fight All of the lights that leave me so blind As a writer But I'm not an actor no I don't live my own Life and I hate my feelings I'm overwhelmed and heated Can't say that I am longing for Another day to break my spirit Insane and I can tell who's winning Wish this was something I could just ignore Well you know what they say Lost souls make sure no one loses their way Hurt ones can't stand seeing others in pain Oh I am both now I got too much on my plate And I save all the others cause for me it's too… Well you know what they say Lost souls make sure no one loses their way Hurt ones can't stand seeing others in pain Oh I am both now I got too much on my plate And I save all the others cause for me it'ѕ too lаte

Lyrics
English Lyrics: We take our first breath And then we exhale Then we give it all we got Until we fail We get back up again We take a look around Oh, life can be a long road But at least we're not alone We might be different, we might be unique You might be a leader, I might be a freak And we might be different But under the falling sun Tonight we are one We are one When we rise, we rise like the sun When we go down, we go down, we go down, we go down We take our first step And then we fall But still we keep on going Climbing every wall We keep on fighting Turning every stone And life can be a long road At least we're not alone We might be different, we might be unique You might be a leader, I might be a freak And we might be different But under the falling sun Tonight we are one We are one When we rise, we rise like the sun When we go down, we go down, we go down We are one (We might be different, we might be unique) We are one (You might be a leader, I might be a freak) When we rise, we rise like the sun When we go down, we go down, we go down, we go down We are one (We might be different, we might be unique) You might be a leader, I might be a freak We might be different, but under the falling ѕun Tonight we аre one

Lyrics
English Lyrics: We're the only ones awake in the whole universe And I still don't know your desert well Maybe it's somewhere in my heart Where the sun never shines Where sometimes I lose you But if I want I get you We're a book on the floor in an empty house Which looks like ours Coffee with lemon To fight a hangover You look like a blurry photo And we screwed up one more night Outside a club And thank goodness If this is the last song And then the moon will explode I'll be there to tell you you're wrong, you're wrong and you know it The music doesn't make it here I know that you don't sleep sleep sleep sleep sleep ever How two lives keep turning We're the only ones awake in the whole universe Shouting out a bit of our anger on a rooftop That no one feels this way That no one watches movies anymore The flowers in your room My metallic top We're a book on the floor in an empty house Which looks like ours Lost among people So many words Without ever an answer And we screwed up one more night Outside a club And thank goodness If this is the last song And then the moon will explode I'll be there to tell you you're wrong, you're wrong and you know it The music doesn't make it here And you don't sleep And where will you be? Where are you going? When life then goes too far All the running, the fighting, the mistakes you make When something upsets you I know that you're not sleeping Turn off the light even if you don't feel like it We stay in the dark, wrapped up Only in the sound of the voice Beyond the madness that dances in all things Two lives, look what a mess If this is the last song (And then the moon will explode) I'll be there to tell you you're wrong, you're wrong and you know it The music doesn't make it here I know thаt you don't sleep sleep sleep sleep sleep ever How two liveѕ keep turning

English Lyrics: Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto I've carried sadness with me I hid it well since sixteen And all the crying, all the fighting It kept putting out the fire That burned so bright within me As I look back to all these years To broken dreams disguising fear Being someone that I'm really not Just stay with me My heart is bleeding I need your healing Wait for me Well, it ain't easy To love someone like me Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Finally my heart is beating Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Finally my heart is beating I took it all on myself I asked for nobody's help Had to taste it and embrace it All the bitterness of failure To find myself within me Just stay with me My heart is bleeding I need your healing Wait for me Well, it ain't easy To love someone like me Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Finally my heart is beating Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Finally my heart is beating Just stay Just ѕtаy Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto Čiūto tūto

Lyrics
English Lyrics: D.G.T. (Off and On) How much I write, with any skill With any style, however smooth She brings me into a movie, I feel like a child I spin around like a vinyl 'Cause I want to act in her movie How much I stay, how much I give How much I want, how much I drink With any top, any heel Whatever the others talked I still didn't care I would've chosen her out of thousands of women Cause I count, she hides I call her, she doesn't answer A boxing match with dozens of rounds And just like a ring She plays me on her fingers I believe in her But she lies so beautifully She turns me upside-down 'Cause she talks dirty But only when she wants Lies so easily Leaves the bed empty On her fingers I believe in her But she lies so beautifully She turns me upside-down Talks dirty But only when she wants Lies so easily Leaves the bed empty Don't you now, don't you now Now don't you just wanna sit right next to me Favorite dress on the floor in your dreams The scent of mistake just reminds you of me And now all of your demons keep screaming my name Take a little sip of venom, now Say you love me Say you want me now Fool me all over again, baby Lost in your eyes Nights I crave the touch of you Wondering just what you do I'm beggin you I'm on my knees Take your clothes off step on me Lost in your bedsheets Tryna get closer With marks on my neck And your makeup all over Photos of us, babe Remind me still of ya King without a queen What's another way to get me sober? DGT, why are you scared, tell me quickly You rushed through my head on all of my pillows DGT, why can't you see that i'm thirsty for Her poison Off and on Like a radio song (What?) Messing me around (Uh) Turning upside down (Yeah) Dirty talking me Every day's a game (Every day's a game) Lets me sleep alone She plays me like oh I believe in her But she lies so beautifully She turns me upside-down 'Cause she talks dirty But only when she wants Lies so easily Leaves the bed empty On her fingers I believe in her But she lies so beautifully She turns me upside-down Talks dirty But only when she wants Lies so easily Leаves the bed empty (On her fingerѕ)

The game of hatred is your thing Thank you, don't count on us On us We'll be dancing all night long We'll love each other and play As if there was no tomorrow We won't count the hours until the dawn arises We'll jump across the mountains To be embraced by the sky The first rain will wash away all the fake glitter So it stops stealing the magic from the dance floors The darkness will bring out the shine in our eyes The game of hatred is your thing Thank you, don't count on us We'll be even louder We'll be dancing all night long We'll love each other and play As if there was no tomorrow We won't count the hours until the dawn arises We'll jump across the mountains We'll accept that we are eternal and happy Only as long as the sky keeps embracing us We danced, loved, and played all night We lived as if there wаѕ No tomorrow

English Lyrics: I don't wanna go But baby we both know This is not our time It's time to say goodbye Until we meet again 'Cause this is not the end It will come a day When we will find our way Violins playing and the angels crying When the stars align then I'll be there No I don't care about them all 'Cause all I want is to be loved And all I care about is you You stuck on me like a tattoo No I don't care about the pain I'll walk through fire and through rain Just to get closer to you You stuck on me like a tattoo I'm letting my hair down I'm taking it cool You got my heart in your hand Don't lose it my friend It's all that I got Violins playing and the angels crying When the stars align then I'll be there No I don't care about them all 'Cause all I want is to be loved And all I care about is you You stuck on me like a tattoo No I don't care about the pain I'll walk through fire and through rain Just to get closer to you You stuck on me like a tattoo Oh I don't care about them all 'Cause all I want is to be loved And all I care about is you You stuck on me like a tattoo I don't care about the pain I'll walk through fire and through rain Just to get closer to you You stuck on me like a tattoo All I care about is love Oh oh oh All I care about is love You ѕtuck on me like a tаttoo

English Lyrics: When we were boys We played pretend Army tanks And army men Hide and seek Grow to be the kings we dream Where did we go? We're standin' on the frontline Where did we go? We go? I don't wanna be a soldier, soldier I don't wanna have to play with real blood We ain't playin' now Can't turn and run No water guns No no I don't wanna be a soldier, soldier I don't wanna have to play with real blood 'Cause we ain't playin' now Can't turn and run No water guns Just body bags that we've become Adolescence, breaking rules Nothin hurts when you're bulletproof I remember, yes, I do, I do Where did we go? We're standin' on the frontline Where did we go? We go? I don't wanna be a soldier, soldier I don't wanna have to play with real blood We ain't playin' now Can't turn and run No water guns No no I don't wanna be a soldier, soldier I don't wanna have to play with real blood 'Cause we ain't playin' now Can't turn and run No water guns Just body bags that we've become What we've become What we've become What we've become Playin' with water guns Not playin' with wаter gunѕ

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Sometimes gotta let it go Sometimes gotta look away Sometimes you just gotta know When to stick your middle finger up in the air I cannot explain Tell you how I feel Life is just a game And I'm playing for the win Don't be scared to say just what you think 'Cause no matter how bad, someone's listening Don't care what you say Don't care how you feel Get out of my way 'Cause I got a heart of steel Don't care what you say Or how you feel Oh, I got a heart of steel You just like to act a fool Tryna get in my head like When I turn on my headlights I can see right through you Tryna get a reaction I just hit the action move Despite the pain I continue my fight The world is on fire And you act Don't be scared to say just what you think 'Cause no matter how bad, someone's listening Don't care what you say Don't care how you feel Get out of my way 'Cause I got a heart of steel Don't care what you say Or how you feel Oh, I got a heart of steel Don't care what you say Or how you feel Oh, I got a heаrt of ѕteel

Kinda surprised nobody's posted a top 10 yet 🤔

For mine... I listened to every song twice and ended up with an undisputed #1 that no other song came close to for me. This is followed by 6 songs I really liked as well, which I had to listen to a couple times more to try and rank them.
The last 3 spots are filled up by songs I kinda like, but not nearly as much. These also required a bit of additional plays to determine their order.


1) Germany - Surprised me first time I played it. Starts off as a pretty 'normal' song. Then just goes ''nah, metal time!''. It was the first song I listened to on the first pass through the list that just made me go 'Now this is my jam!'. This type of music just always has my preference, but not only that, I like the message of the song a lot too.

2) Cyprus - did not think much of this song on my first listen. Paid more attention to the lyrics for each song second time around. Probably didn't pay attention enough on the first listen. Rose to a high spot on the second pass. I like his voice a lot. Become second after comparing it with the other 5 top picks.

3) Norway - Good song with a catchy tune that's still stuck in my head. Kept rising steadily while comparing with the other top picks. Could not trump the voice of Cyprus' singer in the end and is in 3rd for me.

4) Estonia - I liked this song straight away. Singer has a really nice voice imo. Not a big fan of the occasional 'aaaaa - aaaaa' and would've ranked it higher without those.

5) Austria - Kinda feels like a guilty pleasure to listen to tbh. Goofy clip, catchy music. I like it, but it stranded at 5th place.

6) Netherlands - Beautiful song. Lacks that bit extra or that catchiness all the songs above have for me to put it higher.

7) Switzerland - Didn't stand out all that much to me in both rounds of listening to all songs. Had it jotted down as a potential 10th if lacking any better options. Listened to it again later on after determining the above 6 to help determine the remaining 4. Liked this song a lot more with each listen. Ended up adding it to the songs I really like, but ended up below the other ones I had already determined. Nearly swapped it around with the Netherlands' song though. This is a beautiful song imo.

The remaining spots are all songs I kinda like, but just don't compare to any of the above for me.

8) Poland - I like the song more than the two below it. It's more catchy than the other two as well.

9) Ukraine - Nice song. Better than the one below imo.

10) Ireland - Honestly a bit of a 'Idk what to put here, but I still have a slot left open' situation. I liked this song enough to put this here over others I had marked down.

  5. Spain
  6. Georgia

First of all, I apologise to all of you for taking so long to offer you your country badges, I fell very ill in Liverpool, and everything descended into chaos.

This year's quiz event will now form our after-party and will be uploaded in the days following the contest!

Also, anyone that hasn't had a chance to share your top ten yet... there is still time! Because of my issues, I will not be closing submissions for several days 😊


Spoiler:

Thank you so much for posting your top ten!!! I always love hearing people's thoughts and feelings about the different songs!

You will be waving the flag for Estonia this year! Your optional signature code is below:

Spoiler:

Thank you for taking part! Great to see some love for France, but also that is another really strong showing for Germany... could they be this year's Austria and take the crown?

You will be waving the flag for... Georgia! You can find your optional code below:

Spoiler:

Thank you for your top ten! Your favourite could very well end up winning the whole thing this year! Stockholm 2024?

Sweden has also been selected as your country to show love and support to! I'm not sure someone has rolled their favourite country before!

Spoiler:

I am still so shocked by this! It was such a vivid performance and the fact that it got next to nothing in points is so wild to me.

I will say that I was definitely Team Finland this year, with Croatia close behind. What was crazy to see was that when it came to the telephone votes, I don't think Sweden got a single 12, whereas Finland had over 50% of the countries giving them a 12, kinda crazy!

Just to let you know about the afterparty stuff, we should have that up soon for you all!

The results of both the quiz and our ESC event will be posted on the 9th!

Better get my own votes in!

Remember tonight is the deadline for anyone that still wants to vote, I'll leave the vote open an extra hour or so while I tally up!


Just missing out on my top 10 were:

15. Diljá - Power (Iceland)

A really powerful song about moving on.


14. Victor Vernicos - What They Say (Greece)

He is just 16 and wrote this when he was 14... I feel so old!


13. Brunette - Future Lover (Armenia)

"I decide to be good, do good, look good" and how right she is. She is beautiful, can sing live, is a great rapper. Oh and she can dance too!


12. Sudden Lights - Aijā (Latvia)

A sleeper of a song with a very unusual mix of tempos that never fails to make me turn up the volume.


11. Luke Black - Samo Mi Se Spava (Serbia)

This song was actually as high as fourth in my ranking at times during the season. Sorry Luke, you were just pipped for the last point in the end but I still love you!



Now time for the top 10!!!

10. Marco Mengoni - Due Vite (Italy)

A beautiful song and a stunning performance but it dropped down my ranking a little after the revamp :(


9. La Zarra - Évidemment (France)

La Zarra adds some disco to France's ESC catalogue and it's awesome!


8. The Busker - Dance (Our Own Party) (Malta)

I love everything about this: the performers, the staging, the clever lyrics, and the infectious sax solo. I feel better in my sweater listening to this.


7. Joker Out - Carpe Diem (Slovenia)

Joker out describe their sound as shagadelic rock and roll. I can't disagree with that, just listen and you'll hear it!


6. Käärijä - Cha Cha Cha (Finland)

Some people think this sounds like Electric Callboy. I say grab a virgin pina colada and just let loose to this fantastic party song.


5. Voyager - Promise (Australia)

You can't take a full prog rock journey in 3 minutes, it just can't be done. Voyager: "hold my pina colada"


4. Pasha Parfeni - Soarele şi Luna (Moldova)

Moldova is a country that never seems to disappoint with their ESC entries. This year we had Pasha Parfeni returning to enchant us with a magical song about love, and love it I do.


3. Teya & Salena - Who The Hell Is Edgar? (Austria)

A song highlighting the sad realities of the music industry, with a chorus channeling the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe, all set to a fast eclectic beat really shouldn't work... but it just does! I can listen to this incredible song on repeat all day and not get bored!


2. Monika Linkytė - Stay (Lithuania)

This song doesn't belong at number 2 in all honesty, it's actually my joint winner and I can't split them - believe me I have tried and tried and tried - but I had to pick a Douze Points so I pretty much flipped a coin.

Going into the national final Stay wasn't my winner but Monika's final performance absolutely blew me away and I so delighted she won! Stay is just such a beautiful song and the lyrics really resonate with me personally. Monika sings with so much passion and I can feel every single word. One of two songs that helped get me through some really dark times this year and my biggest regret of ESC 2023 is falling ill the day I was supposed to meet Monika. I really, really, wanted to say thank you <3


1. Wild Youth - We Are One (Ireland)

We Are One is so special to me that I really can't even begin to explain. I've been having a very difficult time lately and this song is a major reason I'm still here to write this post. In a dark world filled with hatred and negativity, We Are One shines through, bringing all the love, peace, and unity that Eurovision was created for in the first place. I'll always cherish meeting the guys from Wild Youth, and I'll never forget seeing this live on stage, throwing my index finger in the air, and chanting with my whole ESC family... Tonight, We Are One <3
