Recap: (Thank you, Hele. - recommend to watch in HD!)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7VYVRaYQC8

Rules:

• You can vote only once in every round.
• Length of deadlines might change after the first round, depending on the amount on voters.
• There are 8 quarter finals, each of them has 20 or 21 songs. Only 5 songs qualify from each quarter final, so vote carefully!
• After quarter finals, there are 2 semi final groups, each of them has 20 songs and 10 songs from each semi final qualify for the final.
• My votes for first groups are already in, so everyone can be sure that I cannot manipulate with the results.
• Groups and running order were decided with random.org.
• There is also a second chance contest, where 6th and 7th placed songs + 4 wildcards from quarter-finals compete. 5 songs from second chance qualify for the final.
• You must vote via Scorewiz, but if you get an error, you can send your votes with private message.
• I reveal results of the groups shortly after the deadline.
• You can reveal your favourites.

Goal of this tournament is to find the best non-qualifier (also top 25 non-qualifiers) of all time.

henhu: That's strange, but my votes are definitly the ones on the right. I remember I had to click a second time for voting because when I did it first I got some error after saving. But definitly I did not put ::pt 2011 with 12 points and all those others, so I'm not sure what to think xshrug Those shouldn't have counted. If this happens again please confirm my votes via PM.

3/5, just glad my 12 pointer qualified :) The big surprise is ::sl 2012 being left out, then again it was only by a point. And even though I gave my 2nd highest points to ::sl 2009, I already had a bit of a feeling it would not qualify. 7th in the QF after all and I think people take issue with Martina's vocals. But the Quartíssimo melody is still uncanny to this day. Really sad ::ee 2006 was not given this 2nd chance too xcry Have to agree with the running order impact comment as well though that comes as a surprise for me. Maybe some people only watched the recap?

Btw henhu, there's a small mistake in the scoreboard, I gave 3 points to ::at 2005, not 5. No need to go remaking it but I leave here the correction for anyone who wonders why the total final score for that entry doesn't add up :) Voting for SF1 now.

henhu
3rd August 2014, 20:36
This running order thing is interesting. In QF groups 5-8 (there was no recap then) frist and last song in running order always qualified. It's just a coincidence I think. :)

Thanks for telling me, I try to fix it very soon :) I counted total points of each entry and then manually added individual points, thats why I made this mistake (typo).
EDIT: fixed now :)

Listening links are the same as in quarter-finals, I just checked it and I probably had the wrong links in quarter-finals too then. Finnish link was wrong, Macedonian link was dead, because I had double urls. All these things are fixed now :D

4. Belarus 2011 ’’I Love Belarus’’
11. Bulgaria 2012 ’’Love Unlimited’’
14. San Marino 2013 ’’Crisalide (Vola)’’

as these songs often seem very popular

Nice show, I kinda liked the animations novelty. Just still curious as to whom that host in the tiny square at the top is though :lol: Was it ever mentioned?

I suppose I'm the person with the most reasons to be satisfied with how this semi went. I mean, looking at the board seems I was the highest scoring voter with 8/10 after all xyes Really unfortunate that ::lv Aisha didn't make through in the tie-breaker. Also feel a bit sorry for ::mk Gjoko Taneski still being a bit underrated. ::at Trackshittaz were really the big surprise for me, not ::il Izabo - I am glad it is finally getting some more recognition. I much prefer it to the entry for the same country in 2013 but seems that one is really popular among these folks here. Ideas for theme in SF2 - Malmö 2013 and dark green perhaps? ;)

Voting for SF2 soon but would prefer to do so after the recaps are up, those are always great to watch xcheer

There is impressive amount of voters this time - 15 people already!! Big thank you to everybody who has voted so far!
Also, deadline is today at 20.00 CET and results show is at 22.45 CET if anybody is here then :)
About current standings:
1st place has 2 times more points than 3rd place, there is about 10 points difference between 3rd and 10th place. When in semi-final 1 there was only 21 points needed to qualify, then in this semi 10th place would need about 50 points.

About results: There is no tie for 10th place this time... The only ties are for 11th, 9th an 6th place.
There might me some surprises like last time, because there were many good songs. The biggest surprise for me is that winner of one QF finished last :o

2. San Marino 2012 ’’The Social Network Song’’ - It is Valentina, but some people say it is the worst Eurovision song ever... :(
14. Andorra 2007 ’’Salvem el món’’ - Was a big favourite in 2007 and still a good song.
17. Lithuania 2014 ’’Attention’’ - Recent song, many fans?
18. Netherlands 2012 ’’You and Me’’ - Underrated song in Eurovision, many fans want a justice?

Which one is which? :)
