Personally I've never voted for famous singers because they're famous. There are tons of famous singers/bands that would most likely never get any points from me.

From what I remember, Volbeat is the only famous band that we've sent as well. Otherwise it's been artists only known in Denmark (Mew has a bit of fame outside Denmark, but nowhere near the same)

But when people selecting artists for the countries with lots of famous songs have close to the same taste as myself, it's hard not to like their music.

 

About languages: There's no doubt that it's easier for most people to like a song in a language that you understand, but I don't think people actually prioritize songs in english (or other languages that they understand). I must admit that some languages sound better to me than others, especially when sung (I don't want to mention any), therefore meaning a bit in the complete selection of who I vote for.

 

Communions are the best discovery for me! I still listen to Forget it's a dream regularly :hearts:

My top votes (I have evidence of):

 

2016 Annual:

12- Communions (DEN) - great discovery

11- JRBS (RUS)

10- Jain (FRA)

 

2016 Open:

12- Charly Garcia-Fanky (ARG) - absolutely adorable song!!! :hearts:

11- The Raveonettes (DEN) - this one I knew, but I simply love The Raveonettes :)

10- Little Joy (BRA)

 

2017 Annual

12- JRBS (RUS) - jazzy, avantgardish with funny and yet brilliant lyrics. Loved it to bits. Didn't hear the song previously. Subscribed on the YT channel :d

11- Rag'n'Bone (GBR) - discovery for me. Loved the vocals, music... not my type of music but sounded different from the most of the songs

10- Alok (BRA) - the whistling, pretty melodic and rhythmic.

 

2015 Open - if I remember I gave Portugal 12 points (or it was Annual contest :mumble: and probably once again 12 to Denmark)

Volbeat was a fantastic choice @Agger and if I remember it correctly it got 12 points from me :d

Please send sth. like that the next time and it is close to 12 points once again :d

I just noticed that Zedd co-produced your song. I might have given you more points if i would have known that earlier, although i don't like the song.

 

Maybe next time i will also pick a song by Zedd ... ?

If you pick "HUMBLE." by Kendrick Lamar for the next contest, i can guarantee you, that you will get 12 points from me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don't think that even if you knew Zedd co-produced the song there would be any difference. But he is part German, so I think you'll have a better shot at choosing one of his songs.

 

I don't listen to Kendrick Lamar often, but I'm already considering options for 2018 annual. I have a few 90s songs in mind for 2017 Open, so we'll see.

It sure is a wonderful song. :)

Sadly they've become more mainstream and slightly less interesting with their newer music

I cant really think of anything in the same style as Volbeat, but I'm absolutely considering some Danish rock bands for future contests :)

amen09 and tuniscof have to cooperate, if they will organize the contest together everything should be ok.
