It’s the first day of May. Which means only one thing: it’s Eurovision month.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: isn’t Eurovision just about bearded ladies, Russian grannies and the UK never doing well? You’re not wrong, but the contest also produces songs that would be hits for your faves.

Here are 13 entries from the last few years that could be sung by your favourite popstars:

One Direction

If you loved the last two One Direction albums, you’ll no doubt love Softengine’s ‘Something Better’. We can imagine Harry slaying that anthemic last chorus.

Lana Del Rey

This track by Anouk managed to turn around The Netherlands’ fortunes in the contest. It’s moody, atmospheric, and we reckon it’d be at home on Lana’s ‘Ultraviolence’.

David Guetta

Sweden always send incredible, current songs, and we can’t help but feel like last year’s winner sounds like something from David Guetta’s last album.

Meghan Trainor

This track may have come second-to-last in 2011,  but we think it’s the kind of fun pop song that would suit Meghan Trainor perfectly. Although, we’re not a fan of the cardboard city.

Shawn Mendes

If you thought Eurovision was all about huge diva ballads and europop, this entry from Belgium might surprise you. We love Tom Dice’s voice, and reckon this would be great for Shawn Mendes.

Demi Lovato

OK, so this isn’t exactly ‘Cool For The Summer’ Demi. But, this song sounds a lot something from Demi’s third album ‘Unbroken’. They even share the same title.

Selena Gomez

Remember when Selena released ‘Come and Get It’? Well, rather than follow it up with ‘Slow Down’, we think she should have released an ethnobop like this.

Troye Sivan

This was lowkey the best song in last year’s competition, with its sparse production making it stand out. It’s difficult not to imagine Troye bopping along to this live.

Lorde

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqZprvpWlcE]

Every year, there’s one song that is just so much cooler than the rest. In 2011, it was Lena’s ‘Taken By A Stranger’, which we think would suit Lorde perfectly.

Nick Jonas

This year’s competition is particularly filled with songs that sound like smashes. One in particular is the Lithuanian entry, which we can imagine Nick Jonas slaying.

Sia

There are a lot of Sia knock-offs in this year’s competition, but ‘Miracle’ by Azerbaijan’s Samra is better than 90% of Sia’s last album.

Halsey

We don’t know about you, but we love Halsey most on songs like ‘Ghost’ or ‘New Americana’. We think Halsey would kill this Norwegian entry by Margaret Berger.

Justin Bieber

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GTdelXRlA4]

Frans‘ song ‘If I Were Sorry’ has by-passed the tropical sound of ‘Sorry’ and gone straight for the chilled-out vibe of ‘Love Yourself’. And we definitely love it.
