As a pre-Christmas treat, this year we held our annual Chat Awards ceremony in the 90 minutes immediately preceding the final of Festivali i Këngës, the Albanian preselection for ESC 2018.

The timing was ideal: what better way to welcome in the first entry of the new season than by reviewing and voting on our favourites from the past year from the nominees chosen by our chatters?

The winners of the individual live polls were:

  • Best official preview video for an ESC 2017 song: Belgium (“City Lights”)
    [also nominated: France, Belarus]
  • Best outfit(s) worn at ESC 2017: Sweden (Robin Bengtsson)
    [also nominated: Moldova, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Montenegro]
  • Best staging at ESC 2017: Azerbaijan (“Skeletons”)
    [also nominated: Bulgaria, Cyprus]
  • Best solo artist at ESC 2017: Salvador Sobral (Portugal)
    [also nominated: Belgium, France]
  • Best band or other non-solo artist at ESC 2017: Naviband (Belarus)

  • #esc cult of the year: Maltese public singing “Breathlessly”
    [also nominated: YouTuber, Georgian voting V-sign, FiK interval act fail, Etzia]

We also reconfirmed “Petale” by Instinct as our favourite non-winning national final song of the season following its victory in the 2017 edition of SongHunt earlier in the year.

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to all our chatters for their participation in another fun year of Chat Awards!
