Written by Tamas Vamos of Hungary 
After 6 weeks and 3 round of voting, we have a winner! Now we can name a song as our all-time favourite in 2015. (The competition started in 2015.)
In the Nominations round, where we were looking for our TOP60, finally we had a drama after the last votes arrived! 5 nominations were enough for qualification, as our club’s members have so different taste of music. But there were 49 songs with 6 or more votes and 12 with 5. So it was a tie and one song was drawn to be eliminated: Unsubstantial blues (Hungary, 2007) was the unlucky entry. Two Swedish songs, Euphoria and Waterloo got the most votes, 26 for each.
In the second round, the 60 songs were in 6 group of ten.
In Group A, Grande Amore got the most (19) votes; Making Your Mind Up and Take Me to Your Heaven both were second with 15. The tie-breaking was based on the more nominations in the first round, so 1981’s winning song went to the Final. Sévérine’s song finished at the bottom with 3 votes, the 9th place belongs to New Tomorrow as they got 5.
Group B: Euphoria had 28 votes, while the second place song is Satellite with 14. The unlucky third was Gravity with 10 votes. La det swinge and Stronger Every Minute finished last with 5 votes for each.
Group C: Monster Like Me won this group with 16 votes, followed by Only Teardrops with 13. Hold Me Now and Calm After the Storm finished as third with 12-12 points. Cliff Richard’s Congratulations finished surprisingly last with only 4 votes, following 1979’s Hallelujah who got 7.
Group D: Rhythm Inside had the second best score in this round, winning its group with 20 votes. Diva became second with 15. The third was Shady Lady with 12. Lane moje and I Feed You My Love both finished last with 4 votes.
Group E: The winner of this group is Waterloo with 19 votes, the second is Rise Like a Phoenix (14). Quédate conmigo and Goodbye to Yesterday both got 12 votes so they became third. The oldest song in this whole round, Nel blu dipinto di blu became last with 4 votes. The second last were Love Shine a Light, This Is My Life and Alexander Rybak’s Fairytale – all of them got 7 votes. Fairytale got more nominations in the first round, but the rest two had the same amount. As there are more songs from the UK, the Icelandic one is ranked higher.
Group F: Undo won this group with 17 votes, followed by Gina G with 15. (Her song missed to win the group as finished behind Sanna, but not so much – just a little bit…) The third place is the best Hungarian entry in our competition: Kati Wolf got 13 votes. The last two are Euro-Vision with 3 votes and Molitva (who one the similar competition in Hungary) with 4.
In the FINAL:
There’s only one song who did not get any nil points: Rise Like a Phoenix!
The most zeros went to Ooh… Aah… Just a Little Bit.
All the songs in the TOP12 got at least one douze points from someone.If you want to feel some excitement, watch the video but not this table below which contains the amount of the points the songs got from the 53 voters.
