Chat Awards 2017: The winners!

by | Dec 28, 2017 | Chat Awards, Eurovision, Featured |

Presenting the winners of the #esc and escgo! Chat Awards for 2017!

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)
    [also nominated: Moldova, Estonia, Netherlands]
  • Best song at ESC 2017: Belgium (“City Lights”)
    [also nominated: Italy, Finland, Portugal]
  • Best national final of the 2017 season: Romania
    [also nominated: United Kingdom, Slovenia, Portugal, Sweden, Spain]
  • Hottest person at ESC 2017 or in a national final: IMRI
    [also nominated: Volodymyr Ostapchuk, Jon Henrik Fjällgren]
  • #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!

Sorry to hear of the death of Teddy Johnson who, together with Pearl Carr, represented the UK at the 1959 Eurovision Song Contest with Sing Little Birdie (which should have won!)

If #Eurovision 2019 really is held at the Teddy Stadium, the "bear" jokes are going to be... well... unbearable 🐻

New blog post: Things people on the internet have said to me for explaining why the staging of the Dutch Eurovision song looked racist (This is at least two weeks after it should have gone up. Thank you, May...)
