Last week Finland's Jaana Pelkonen and Mikko Leppilampi were voted as the most popular Eurovision Song Contest from 2000-2009. In the final part of our series we turn our attention to the current decade. If the noughties was the decade of the duo then the current decade is that of the trio.
The 2010 Eurovision Song Contest took place in Oslo, Norway following Alexander Rybak's landslide victory in Moscow the previous year. Norwegian broadcaster NRK broke with tradition and selected three hosts for the show; Erik Solbakken, Haddy N'jie and Nadia Hasnaoui. This continued in the 2011, 2012, 2014 and 2015 contests which all featured three hosts.
Sweden bucked the trend when Petra Mede hosted the contest alone in Malmö in 2013, the first time this has happened since 1995. In 2016 Petra Mede was chosen to host again but joined forces with Eurovision 2015 winner Måns Zelmerlöw in Stockholm. The pair performed the popular interval song Peace, Peace, Love, Love during the Grand Final.
May we have your votes please?
