To round out the 2021 Eurovision season, it’s time to bring back the TES Awards! We’ve already asked for your opinions on this years’ national finals, and now we put the main contest under the spotlight.
There are 12 categories for you to submit your votes in:
- Best Song – this one’s pretty self-explanatory!
- Most Improved Song – what song grew in your estimations from the first time you heard it, either as a studio track or as a national final performance?
- Best Non-Qualifier – not everyone can make it to Saturday night, but which missing song was your favourite?
- Most Culturally Representative Song – Eurovision is a place where each country can show off what makes them unique, but which entry did this most successfully?
- Most Robbed Entry – who deserved better?
- Best Staging – whether they brought dancers, props or LEDs, which staging made the song come alive?
- Best Presenter – we were guided through the contest by four delightful Dutch celebrities, but who did you like the most?
- Best Lyrics – which song had the best meaning or message?
- Strangest Placement in the Running Order (GF) – producer-chosen running orders can lead to some interesting tonal whiplash, but which was the strangest?
- Most Enduring Song – what will we still be listening to in 10, 20, 50 years’ time?
- The Måns Zelmerlöw Award for Aesthetic Excellence – for that person or group you just want to see naked with a plush wolf for modesty
- Meme/Moment of the Season – in Tel Aviv, we dared to dream and in Rotterdam, we dared to meme; which moment from this season was your favourite?
