    Welcome to the PokéCommunity
    Eurovision Song Contest Event 2024!


    Here we go again... It's time for the 68th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest!

    Don't let the name fool you, the ESC is the world's largest song competition with entries ranging from Austria all the way to Australia!

    This year's event will be hosted in Malmö, Sweden, following Loreen's 2023 victory with her song Tattoo.

    37 countries will compete once again this year, but there has still been some changes to the lineup: Romania has declined to compete in 2024, while 5 times champions Luxembourg make their highly anticipated return after an absence of 31 years.

    The 2024 contest will feature two semi-finals this year, held on the 7th and 9th of May. The grand final will take place on the 11th of May. All three live shows will be presented by two time host Petra Mede, alongside actress Malin Åkerman. The whole world is once again able to vote in 2024.



    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!)



    We would love you to join in the fun and tell us your favourite songs (in order and no more than 10 please) from the 37 entries in the following post. The song with the most points at the end of the ESC event will be crowned the PokéCommunity Eurovision Champion!

    Lord of the Lost took the title of PC Eurovision Champion back to Germany last year with their song Blood & Glitter. We look forward to seeing who comes out on top this year!



    We will also be hosting our annual ESC event quiz where you can battle it out against your fellow forum members. None of the questions are directly Eurovision related so don't worry if you've never seen it before. You will have to be on top form though to beat our two time reigning quiz champions Mewtwolover & Devalue!!!

    ***You can find this year's quiz in the FOURTH post***



    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!


    You have until Mon 13th May at 10:59 PM (UTC) / 11:59pm (BST) to submit your answers for any or all of the quiz events. You also have until then to submit or tweak your top 10 ESC songs of 2024 if you would like to. The results of our ESC poll, as well as the quiz results, will be posted soon after!

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

      English Lyrics: We stand eye to eye You try and set a fire Just to watch me burn It's like you don't know That I will survive Learned how to stay alive Come and throw your flames Cause it's all in vain Even if I fall, I'm gon' get up I'll be standing tall, proud, with my head up Go ahead and give your best shot I won't go down I'll never break Like a titan I'll be brave Tonight I'll rise I won't give up Fight 'til the end Every tear's gonna ricochet I rise Rise I'm a titan in disguise I bet you thought that I would crumble, but I won't You thought I wouldn't make it out here on my own You thought you'd see me broken, I'm going strong Still going strong Got an armor round my heart, it's unbreakable Got my feet on the ground, I'm unshakable And if you think I won't survive, then you're so wrong You're so wrong I won't go down I'll never break Like a titan I'll be brave Tonight I'll rise I won't give up Fight 'til the end Every tear's gonna ricochet I rise Rise I'm a titan in disguise I won't go down I'll never break Like a titan I'll be brave Tonight I'll rise I won't give up Fight 'til the end Every tear's gonna ricochet I rise Rise I'm a titаn in disguiѕe

      English Lyrics: Ta ta ta… May pain not come to us I fall and move like dice I pretend to forget your name And everything changes around me abruptly Where will the wind take us? I fall and roll like dice I pretend to forget your scent And everything is changing around me I'm gonna do it my way I'll come in and out of your mind You never gave me a hand to hold Not even to hold myself I used to want you secretly Now I'm letting it all go Let's go Put your hands up Pretend it wasn't a lie Fall one last time And let whatever happens happen Ta ta ta… (Ta ta ta…) And let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) And let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) And let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) Let whatever happens happen I don't want to remember The hours where I almost went crazy Let me not remember You didn't believe That karma was real Let's go Put your hands up Pretend it wasn't a lie Roll it one last time And let whatever happens happen Ta ta ta… Even if I stay alone I will always be waiting for you I'm trembling like a flame Like a lighted up match When the dawn comes I pine away I die alone if you are not here (Ta ta ta…) And let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) Let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) And let whatever happens happen (Ta ta ta…) Let whatever happens happen May pain not come to us I fall and move like dice I pretend to forget your name And everything changes around me abruptly Where will the wind take us?

      Lyrics
      English Lyrics: (I feel it coming) (I feel it coming) Look how far we made it Standing on the edge of a promise I'm not one to take risks Getting hurt taught me to be cautious Maybe we should leave this Cause what would be the use Of crashing into you We could end up in pieces Don't need another heart-shaped bruise I feel it coming Been here before and never got it right Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scared of heights I know we're going sky high Going sky high But what if we forget how to fly Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scared of heights Dive in with my heart first I'm still drowning in this rational fear Wish that I could unlearn I can't enjoy the view from up here Maybe we should leave this Cause what would be the use Of crashing into you We could end up in pieces Don't need another heart-shaped bruise I feel it coming Been here before and never got it right Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scared of heights I know we're going sky high Going sky high But what if we forget how to fly Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scared of heights (I feel it coming) (I feel it coming) I feel it coming Been here before and never got it right Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scared of heights Oh I'm scared of heights Fell a couple times And I barely made it out alive Oh I'm scared of heights But the truth is I'm Still falling if I kiss you good-bye Baby I'm wondering If falling in love has got me scаred of heightѕ

      English Lyrics: Writer of my symphony Play with me Look into my eyes and see People walk away but never say goodbye Someone stole the moon tonight Took my light Everything is black and white Who's the fool who told you boys don't cry? Hours and hours, empowers Life is no game but it's ours While the time goes wild Everyday I'm losing my mind Holding on in this mysterious ride Dancing in the storm I got nothing to hide Take it all and leave the world behind Baby promise me you'll hold me again I'm still broken from this hurricane This hurricane Living in a fantasy, ecstasy Everything is meant to be We shall pass but love will never die Hours and hours, empowers Life is no game but it's ours While the time goes wild Everyday I'm losing my mind Holding on in this mysterious ride Dancing in the storm I got nothing to hide Take it all and leave the world behind Baby promise me you'll hold me again I'm still broken from this hurricane This hurricane This hurricane Don't need big words Just prayers Even if it's hard to see You always leаve One ѕingle light

      Lyrics
      English Lyrics: How many drawings have I done I'm sittin' here lookin' at them None come to life This page is lazy I'm in a rush And they told me that life is precious I wear it tall and head high My necklace has no pearls of wisdom They gave me colourful beads For the messed up girls with traumas To be slowly unravelled growing up Nevertheless I'm looking great with zero drama Maybe I'll move cities once again Cause staying still it comes to me It comes to me The Boredom The Boredom The Boredom The Boredom I die without dying During these wasted days I live without suffering There is no greater cross All we can do is have a laugh during these scorched nights A crown of thorns will be the dress code for my party It's the cumbia* of boredom It's the cumbia of boredom Total Ah, it's the cumbia of boredom The cumbia of boredom Total How many people see evil in things It makes me want to run away as they start talking And I would like to say that I'm fine but then they look at me and scorn So I say it's difficult to make a living Business you talk about business Meanwhile I close my eyes to sign contracts Princess he calls you princess So now stop washing the dishes I die without dying During these wasted days I live without suffering There is no greater cross All we can do is have a laugh during these scorched nights A crown of thorns will be the dress code for my party It's the cumbia of boredom It's the cumbia of boredom Total Ah, it's the cumbia of boredom It's the cumbia of boredom Total So do you write songs? Yes, love songs And I don't want to bore you But someone has to sing them Cumbia, I dance cumbia If I risk tripping at least I'll stop the boredom So I'm having a party, I'm having a party Because it's the only way to stop To stop To stop, ah The Boredom The Boredom The Boredom The Boredom I die without dying During these wasted days I live without suffering There is no greater cross All we can do is have a laugh during these scorched nights A crown of thorns Will be the dress code for my party It's the cumbia of boredom It's the cumbia of boredom Total Ah, it'ѕ the cumbia of boredom The cumbia of boredom Total Totаl * The cumbia is a dance from Colombia

      Lyrics
      English Lyrics: (Vixen, vixen…) I know I'm just a vixen to you My past is gobbling you up I know I'm the black sheep The misunderstood, the one made of stone I know I'm not who you want me to be (I know) I get it, it's driving you up the wall (I know) But this is just my nature Can't be bothered changing for you I'm in a good place now It was just a matter of time I'm gonna hit the streets and shout out what I feel From the rooftops If I head out solo, I'm a bit of a vixen If I'm having fun, I'm the biggest vixen If I stretch the night till it's daylight I'm an even bigger vixen When I get what I want (Vixen, vixen) It's never 'cause I deserve it (Vixen, vixen) Even though I'm taking on the world No one appreciates it at all I'm in a good place now It was just a matter of time I'm gonna hit the streets and shout out what I feel From the rooftops I'm in a good place now (Vixen, vixen) Rebuilt from the inside out (Vixen, vixen) And that vixen you were so scared of, she's been empowering herself And now she's a picture-perfect vixen (Vixen, vixen, vixen) Who's not doing so badly (Vixen, vixen, vixen) And couldn't care less about anything Go ahead, throw stones, if that's your thing I'm a picture-perfect vixen I'm a real woman (Vixen, vixen, vixen) And if I get all worked up (Vixen, vixen, vixen) From vixen, I might just turn into a jackal If so, you're in trouble I'm a picture-perfect vixen (Vixen, vixen) I'm in a good place now Just a matter of time I'm gonna hit the streets and shout out what I feel From the rooftops I'm in a good place now (Vixen, vixen, vixen) Rebuilt from the inside out (Vixen, vixen, vixen) And that vixen you were so scared of, she's been empowering herself And now she'ѕ а picture-perfect vixen

What is your life? But the years are flying! You should be aware: the end is near And may someone want us to break May there be energy in you Not the elbow-deep, but the finger-deep And may someone hide hatred And envy behind a smile When you let anger into your heart Instead of kindness and love But there are saints in the sky Their feet have seen this earth, you know That's why your thorny Path is not in vain And though it may be very scary and dark And sometimes not easy But you'll always have your ancestors Following you from heaven Mother Teresa and Diva Maria are with us Barefoot, as if on a blade, they walked on the ground With us mama Teresa, Diva Maria All the Divas were born as human beings Mother Teresa and Diva Maria are with us Barefoot, as if on a blade, they walked on the ground With us mama Teresa, Diva Maria All the Divas were born as humаn beingѕ

    Ooooh, interested!

    Here are my top 10 finally!
    1. San Morino - oh come on, San Morino this is just unfair. This is an absolute banger that is ticking ALL the boxes I want it to - it's got that chaotic Eurovision charm, the song itself is a really catchy metal banger and their overall vibe is fantastic. Definitely my favs to win!!!!
    2. Estonia - YEEEESSSSSSSS. This is so bonkers, I love it. But even better is that it's equal parts wild and musically good!
    3. Ireland - this is such an unorthodox pick for Ireland and I absolutely love it! Their general energy is great, the aesthetic is funky and unique and the music I am really enjoying. I hope this translates onto the stage really well, could be potential winner material if it does!
    4. Austria - I appreciate the commitment to age old adage that a lot of mainland European music is stuck in that 90s euro-house phase, this is a really energetic, punchy and powerful number!
    5. Azerbaijan - it's not super bad, but felt quite generic to me.
    6. Finland - Keep them coming! Again it's that hyperbolic goofiness that to me is one of the biggest draws of Eurovision. I will say that this is more akin to when the competition entries focused a little TOO much on just being as weird and wonderful as they could, perhaps at the expense of the actual song a little.
    7. Croatia - everything about this is so goofy and stupid and I am HERE FOR IT. The song itself is... strange. Very odd melodeath that doesn't want to quite fully commit, but the precipice of it all and the fact it's Baby Lasagna is the level of Eurovision charm I've been looking for! Can't wait to see what they do live.
    8. Czechia - I really enjoy this! Very powerful vocals and a really nice song, but it does feel a little different to some of the other female-fronted acts and that's what I think I enjoy about it the most. There's an almost Paramore-esque quality to it.
    9. Slovenia - something a little different! Again it seems to harken to that 90s house/disco era but with some modern flair, really enjoy this song.
    10. Ukraine - honestly this was super mid until the rap kicked in. Love it when an Eurovision entry throws curveballs like this!
    And my thoughts on the rest of the songs below:

    Took quite a while to go through each of them, came to a proper list of my top 10. Some were MUCH harder to place than others, and not necessarily for 1st either. I can certainly say Serbia and Belgium battled hard for a spot in my top 5 for sure... Though France and Latvia blew it out of the water in terms of vocals... I honestly wouldn't be disappointed to hear either of them win. I gave it to France though, but only because of the last 30 seconds being so explosive. But both technically should be my first place...


    France-1
    Latvia-2
    Estonia-3
    Belgium-4
    Norway-5
    Serbia-6
    Spain-7
    Denmark-8

    It would seem like the flag doesn't want to show up in my flair for some reason... I tried copy-pasting the code, but all that shows up is the "PC Eurovision Event 2024" part and a bunch of code spaghetti on top of it...

    Oh gosh I'm sorry Alex! The code looks ok at first glance but I might be missing it. Did you mean signature when you said flair because I don't think it'll work in a flair unfortunately. It should work in a signature though:

    *cough* anyway....
    I've been struggling to finalize a top 10 for a while now... like my top 5 was easily set, but there were quite a few songs I liked enough to put in a top 10, but not enough space xD

    1) Serbia - Beautiful song imo
    2) Albania - I prefer songs sung in their native language (if it isn't English), but it's a very good song imo.
    3) San Marino - I mean, Rock & Metal will just always be my jam and this is just a good song =P :cool:
    4) Croatia - Kinda annoyingly catchy... but a very fun song to listen to.
    5) Belgium - Good well sung song.

    aaaand, then things became complicated for me... too many good songs competing for those last 5 spots.

    6) Latvia - I like the song, but I can't put the English version any higher. It's good, but had he participated with the Latvian version of the song Alex linked this would easily be in 4th for me. Might even have pushed San Marino out of my top 3.
    7) Switzerland - Not really a fan of the rap-like section, but the rest of the song is very good.
    8) Armenia - Very fun song to listen to.
    9) Israel - Singer's got a beautiful voice, but I don't like the song itself as much as the others above.
    10) Netherlands - Initially didn't care about it. I'm just not a fan of gabber. Seemed like a typical party song too so I let it play while doing something else, wasn't even really paying attention to the lyrics. Then I hear him say "Ik ben echt alles kwijt, behalve de tijd", which basically means "I've really lost everything, except for the/my time (as in time on this planet / being alive)". Which caught me by surprise so I went back to the video. There's some other lyrics as well where he talks about his pain, so that sad ending didn't fully surprise me, but it still had me in tears. :sadwick:
    The more I listened to it the more the sad meaning of certain parts of the song started getting to me, so I'm putting it in 10 despite not liking gabber.

    Lithuania, Italy, Poland, Georgia, Denmark, Czechia, Germany all almost made it on there.

    Finished listening to all of them. Wrote short comments on all of them this year. Would have struggled to make a full top 10 (again) otherwise.

    1. San Marino: Largely a case of a better genre match than the others.
    2. Croatia: Liked the sound. Probably plummets in rating by looking at the English lyrics. (Read them. Never mind. No change.)
    3. Estonia: Weak like. Sounds like a great background/rhythm/whatever to build on. Wants more of a melody or something. Lacks something.
    4. Finland: Likes the instrumentals, but not the singer. Feels buried by it.
    5. France: Good singer. (Returned here after listening to all the songs to reorder the top 10ish. Probably the best one out of everyone.) Not interested by the song.
    6. Azerbaijan: Decent voice.
    7. Armenia: Not many words. Weak like purely on the trumpet.
    8. Austria: Weak like on the sound. Committed hard to fanservice.
    9. Slovenia: Liked the little "brah"s. Gave the song a little spookier tone. Thinks of nothing else particularly positive, however.
    10. Serbia: Heard some emotion from this singer. Beats most of the others on that little bit.

    Spoiler: The rest
    Switzerland: Not a fan, but better than the standard.
    Ireland: Did not sound nice. Was at least interested enough to keep watching/listening. Awarded points for being so different.
    Luxembourg: Not quite "standard", but not breaking through either. Was more interested in trying to pick out the French than the song. (Did the same for France's.)
    Italy: Hoped for something more interesting at the opening. Nope. Rates as "eh".
    Ukraine: Started okay with the chant. Settled into neutral territory after that.
    Netherlands: Different, but not that interesting.
    Malta: Mostly standard.
    Australia: Standard. Boring video.
    Latvia: Standard.
    Albania: Standard. A little unfocused, instrumentally, with the ending?
    Belgium: Standard.
    Georgia: Standard.
    Sweden: Standard or close enough to it.
    Germany: Standard.
    United Kingdom: Standard.
    Israel: Standard
    Poland: Standard.
    Cyrpus: Standard.
    Norway: Wanted to like this for the fairy tale elements, but no.
    Denmark: Really standard. Too conversational-sounding? Neat heartbeat effect on the clothing.
    Iceland: See above (Denmark), minus the heartbeat.
    Moldova: Too conversational, with some interspersed noises.
    Spain: Bored by the song.
    Lithuania: All basic background/rhythm, zero melody.
    Portugal: Probably relies on an emotional connection. Felt nothing from the singer. Read the lyrics to give it a better chance. Nope. (Fights an uphill battle on this one, admittedly.)
    Czechia: Sounds...out of tune?
    Greece: Unpleasant.

    *cough* anyway....
    I've been struggling to finalize a top 10 for a while now... like my top 5 was easily set, but there were quite a few songs I liked enough to put in a top 10, but not enough space xD

    1) Serbia - Beautiful song imo
    2) Albania - I prefer songs sung in their native language (if it isn't English), but it's a very good song imo.
    3) San Marino - I mean, Rock & Metal will just always be my jam and this is just a good song =P :cool:
    4) Croatia - Kinda annoyingly catchy... but a very fun song to listen to.
    5) Belgium - Good well sung song.

    aaaand, then things became complicated for me... too many good songs competing for those last 5 spots.

    6) Latvia - I like the song, but I can't put the English version any higher. It's good, but had he participated with the Latvian version of the song Alex linked this would easily be in 4th for me. Might even have pushed San Marino out of my top 3.
    7) Switzerland - Not really a fan of the rap-like section, but the rest of the song is very good.
    8) Armenia - Very fun song to listen to.
    9) Israel - Singer's got a beautiful voice, but I don't like the song itself as much as the others above.
    10) Netherlands - Initially didn't care about it. I'm just not a fan of gabber. Seemed like a typical party song too so I let it play while doing something else, wasn't even really paying attention to the lyrics. Then I hear him say "Ik ben echt alles kwijt, behalve de tijd", which basically means "I've really lost everything, except for the/my time (as in time on this planet / being alive)". Which caught me by surprise so I went back to the video. There's some other lyrics as well where he talks about his pain, so that sad ending didn't fully surprise me, but it still had me in tears. :sadwick:
    The more I listened to it the more the sad meaning of certain parts of the song started getting to me, so I'm putting it in 10 despite not liking gabber.

    Lithuania, Italy, Poland, Georgia, Denmark, Czechia, Germany all almost made it on there.

    Thank you!!!

    If you like Albania then honestly you should check out the original Albanian language version (Zemrën n'dorë). I personally think it's even better than the English revamp!

    Alex played a ton of Dons' songs at last weekend's QueUp session and my goodness that dude can sing. Well worth checking out his other stuff too.

    I was curious how Netherlands would come across for those that speak the language. I have obviously read the lyrics but when you can't understand them being sung I think something is lost.

    Finished listening to all of them. Wrote short comments on all of them this year. Would have struggled to make a full top 10 (again) otherwise.

    1. San Marino: Largely a case of a better genre match than the others.
    2. Croatia: Liked the sound. Probably plummets in rating by looking at the English lyrics. (Read them. Never mind. No change.)
    3. Estonia: Weak like. Sounds like a great background/rhythm/whatever to build on. Wants more of a melody or something. Lacks something.
    4. Finland: Likes the instrumentals, but not the singer. Feels buried by it.
    5. France: Good singer. (Returned here after listening to all the songs to reorder the top 10ish. Probably the best one out of everyone.) Not interested by the song.
    6. Azerbaijan: Decent voice.
    7. Armenia: Not many words. Weak like purely on the trumpet.
    8. Austria: Weak like on the sound. Committed hard to fanservice.
    9. Slovenia: Liked the little "brah"s. Gave the song a little spookier tone. Thinks of nothing else particularly positive, however.
    10. Serbia: Heard some emotion from this singer. Beats most of the others on that little bit.

    Spoiler: The rest
    Switzerland: Not a fan, but better than the standard.
    Ireland: Did not sound nice. Was at least interested enough to keep watching/listening. Awarded points for being so different.
    Luxembourg: Not quite "standard", but not breaking through either. Was more interested in trying to pick out the French than the song. (Did the same for France's.)
    Italy: Hoped for something more interesting at the opening. Nope. Rates as "eh".
    Ukraine: Started okay with the chant. Settled into neutral territory after that.
    Netherlands: Different, but not that interesting.
    Malta: Mostly standard.
    Australia: Standard. Boring video.
    Latvia: Standard.
    Albania: Standard. A little unfocused, instrumentally, with the ending?
    Belgium: Standard.
    Georgia: Standard.
    Sweden: Standard or close enough to it.
    Germany: Standard.
    United Kingdom: Standard.
    Israel: Standard
    Poland: Standard.

    Norway: Wanted to like this for the fairy tale elements, but no.
    Denmark: Really standard. Too conversational-sounding? Neat heartbeat effect on the clothing.

    Thank you for submitting your favourites!

    I hold San Marino in really high regard so the love so far in this thread has really warmed my heart! I am even thinking of taking a San Marino flag this year!

    My own personal opinion on Slovenia is that the singer oversells the song. I have seen some mesmerising live performances from her, hopefully she can deliver in Malmo.

    Finland might just be the opposite tbh. I love the song but I do worry about the live vocals. Hopefully that worry is unfounded!
