This is a game where a map of Europe will be presented, without a label, for you, the adoring ESCUnited public, to guess what the meaning is.

Start with:

Isn't Ireland technically a soloist as 'Can-linn' is the name of the project
Kasey's the only performer

What do the yellow countries have in common? What about the brown-ish ones? Hint: It's got to do with this forum :D And Sicily should be yellow too ofc

And no, it has nothing to do with the Soviet Union.

The yellows have won the Ranking game, the browns used to be Soviet have come last in the Ranking game

Great map!


Took me a half an hour to solve that. :D

This map marks the countries who hasn't got a single point in the finals
4 zero - just Norway
3 zero - red countries
2 zero - orange countries
1 zero - yellow countries

Got that too! Song's titles length
4-word song titles the darkest (Dancing in the Rain, Calm After The Storm, etc.), 3-word song titles a bit lighter and so on. :)

Keeping looking, as a Brit you should be able to figure it out at some point.

Ah, I see now. Green is countries the UK points to in the final of Eurovision 2013
Yellow is countries who gave the UK points in the final.
Red neither gave us points or recieved points from the UK

The thing that threw me was that Denmark was coloured in red when the UK gave them 12 points. Was that an accident?

Oh yes. Sorry about that. I got carried away at the end with colouring red it seems.

ok apparently mine was too difficult (or there just wasn't much interest in this game anymore) :p
anyway, so I don't leave it unsolved (also it's probably not entirely accurate anymore):

^^solution:
the number of the official facebook page likes for the 2014 participant... red=the most (emma marrone with 2.7m, segej ćetković with 362k,...)

...and since this was posted right before esc it's now fun to compare some stats.. like how Conchita has risen like a phoenix from 37k to 786k 8-)
