Poll: What’s the best Nordic entry at Eurovision 2023?

Five countries with passion

The five Nordic countries – that is Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – have won the Eurovision Song Contest a total of thirteen times. Sweden leads with six wins while Iceland is the only nation in the mix not to have won the title yet. However, the Icelanders have tasted success. They were runners-up in both 1999 and 2009.

But that’s all in the past. Eurovision 2023 in Liverpool is the future. So we have to ask ourselves: now that all five Nordic countries have chosen their artist and song, which is your favourite?

You can vote for as many countries as you like, but you can only vote once. Be sure and tick the box next to each country you wish to support before hitting VOTE. You can scroll down to review the acts in case you forgot them… which probably bodes badly for their chances!

What is the best Nordic entry at Eurovision 2023?

Denmark: Reiley with “Breaking My Heart”

Faroese TikTok sensation Reiley brings a fresh electronic sound and a really intense vocal effect to “Breaking My Heart”. The song tells of Reiley’s heartbreak and the many feelings that come from it – including pain, nostalgia, regret and, of course, love.

Finland: Käärijä with “Cha Cha Cha”

With “Cha Cha Cha,” the Finnish rapper moves from anger to joy – all with the help of a pina colada. “Finland is a party country, a heavy metal country and a pop country – this song brings it all together,” said Käärijä ahead of the national final. He also brings a neon green bolero and a “piggy train” made of flamenco dancers. This is a WTF performance that will really make you smile.

Iceland: Diljá with “Power”

Diljá Pétursdóttir was first seen on stage at the age of 12 when she was taking part in a competition Iceland’s Got Talent 2015 back. Eight years later, she channels with her post “Power,” which is about inner strength and endurance. Someone has wronged her, but she knows she can look inside for the solution. The song has drum ‘n bass elements that her voice dances and glides over.

Norway: Alessandra with “Queen of Kings”

“Queen of the Kings” is a Norwegian forest fantasy, half-Norwegian sea shanty, dance number based on female empowerment. Alessandra shakes her hips with abandon, channeling the power and energy she sings about. Elegant Norwegian lighting really makes this pop.

Sweden: Loreen with “Tattoo”

“Tattoo” is a dark dance-pop track about holding on to the right love that arrives at the wrong time. Though Loreen proclaims “it’s time to say goodbye,” she says “this isn’t the end,” continuing to hope that in the future the stars will align and their love will flourish. With lyrics like “I don’t care about the pain, I’ll walk through fire and through rain,” Loreen promises she’ll do whatever it takes to get back to that persona. The LED screens transport us to another world – one that is at once abstract, yet somehow natural and down to earth. They help remove the audience completely from the picture and override reality as we drop into Loreen’s sonic and visual universe.

Who did you choose? Do you think any of these acts can exceed expectations when they meet Liverpool? Which acts can realistically make it to the finals? Let us know in the comments below.
