Hi everyone, it is time again to start a third edition of the Eurovision Your Choice Contest! This time around, you will pick 4 numbers each out of the 48 ones to select, that means that only 12 will be able to select, so you better be quick! Of course you can pick a song from any year, except the years that already been selected (I will write the ones that already been entered to you in the pm I tell which countries you get to choose from). The 48 selected ones will, together with the only Czech song left from 2008, compete in two semis with 22 and 21 in each, for the 20 places where the big five and last editions winner Norway already is in. :)

What the heck!?!? Juliana Pasha failed!? I can't believe it!!!

http://i.imgur.com/CSDG2ua.gif

"YOU ARE THE WAN" "I AM THE WAN"

Finally one of my favourite Albanian entries and it fails. I have a feeling my votes probably didn't help it as I gave a few high points to entries that were probably borderline qualifiers that have made it through. I should have voted tactically. This is the greatest tragedy of the Eurovision Your Choice Contest EVER. My life is over. Farewell cruel world.

I just wanted to say how awesome Monaco's song is. This was my first time hearing it. The pace of it is insane. With Juliana gone, I think I now know who i'm backing, especially as the second semi has no favourites of mine. I'm struggling to find even five that I want to give points to. I'll take my time with this and listen in full a couple of times to the songs i'm not familiar with. Well done to the person that picked Bulgaria's entry though. That's an interesting choice.xup

7/10 with top 5 making it through :) Biggest surprise is probably Moldova as I've always assumed it has some rather broad appeal and would be safe despite my low voting. Macedonia is kinda unfair too, good song and good vocalist but maybe people noticed that little smugness which I did too!

A 5/10 should usually not be seen as a good thing but considering it was my bottom 4 being left behind I'm actually quite satisfied with these results. Just really sorry for ::nl. And maybe ::is too as they only missed by a single point. Surprised ::ie ranked so low, it really seems to be a song that splits people between hatred and love. Bit surprised with ::ch qualifying and I liked the suspense until the end with ::sk as I thought it was a no brainer qualifier :mrgreen:

All of my 4 selected songs are in the final, not bad at all for a first timer, I suppose :) Voting for it soon.

Btw Schlagerman1, you might want to update that sentence right above the songs on the first post since it's sounding a little outdated now.

Thanks for the mention, really. I thought I had already voted some 10 days ago and was surprised to see my nickname there. Turns out I just had gone through my voting process, took note of the votes down somewhere but hadn't got to do the most important part of it all - sending them by PM to you :?

RainyWoods
11th August 2014, 18:56
I have not voted yet as this is so difficult. I'm leaving out at least a couple of songs I really like and I can't decide where my 12 is going xcry1


Edit - I just voted. At the last moment I switched my 12 points with a song that was a potential 0 pointer from me. I've just been so charmed by this particular song. The song I originally was going to give my 12 to ended on only 7:(

Another Great Contest, Thanks Schlagerman!
I got my best ever result this time!

Schlagerman1
12th August 2014, 00:37
So let's see the results in each semi final! First semi 1:

http://oi59.tinypic.com/2qibk7a.jpg

As you can see Finland won this semifinal, before Bosnia & Herzegovina and Armenia. Monaco and Estonia got the last places through and put out Sweden from the final. Turkey may (at least to me) be a unpleasant surprise since it got last place with just 8 points.

And here is semi 2:

http://oi58.tinypic.com/347afsn.jpg

This semi won Ukraine pretty clear ahead of Israel and Hungary. Denmark kicked out Iceland with just one single point (once again a nordic country kills Iceland from glory...) Czech Republics last apperence in EYCC were close to end in a last place, but after a 12 from EDC0708, they got saved and Ireland would get it instead.

And the final scoreboard:

http://oi59.tinypic.com/2cct35z.jpg

Ukraine looked like a pretty secure winner in the end, but it was exciting when first France and Belgium were in the beginning shortly behind and after a rough start Bosnia looked like to be a potential flop in the final, but managed to go up to 5th place. Portugal is this editions big climber, from just 8th in the semi to 3rd in the final! Armenia may be seen as a let down and perhaps Israel should be a little disapointed after being 2nd in their semi.

I am feeling a bit tired now, so the who picked who comes up tomorrow! :D Hope to see you again for an another edition, not too far away in time! ;)

Stargazer thank you for picking the song:p I can't stop listening to it. I originally had Portugal on 3 points, then I switched it to 7... but at the last moment I switched Monaco and Portugal around so it got my 12. The song is just magical, there is something so strangely poignant about it. The chorus gives me chills and I can't even explain why.

Shocking and sad that Switzerland placed so low with points only from 2 voters. xcry1 xcry1
I wanted to shout: serriously!!!????

Great show Schlagerman1, in what is probably the better and most well thought game of these forums (without putting in question the quality of the others) :) I'm very happy with how things have turned out in the end. Excellent winner. I gave it 6 but in reality it's my clear 12 pointer. Only reason I didn't give it more is because we can vote for our own songs and logically everyone wants to win. Personally I couldn't have asked for a better debut in the contest. After qualifying 3 of my 4 entries (with one being a semi winner), I managed to get 3 of them into the top 10, 2 into the top 5 and bring home runner-up place as well! Really pleased, as you can imagine.
It's kind of funny how the final places for my entries obey to the order of points I attributed to them as well. The only thing I could possibly be disappointed about concerns the 19th place that the wonderful ::es Quédate conmigo ended up getting. Indeed, it's a little disappointing but I've managed to give Spain it's best result ever so far in this contest. Not to mention I did that for all of my other entries as well! So reading these results is kinda making my day :)
I would have given my 12 to Pastora but I had a feeling that it didn't appeal to the majority of the voters because it is a non-English power ballad. But definitly it is the song that moves me the most from the ones I picked. Ended up being a smart choice giving the 12p to ::fi Hard Rock Hallelujah after all anyway since that made it the runner-up and I knew that the most debatable ESC winner to date would do well around here. Curious fact: I almost ended up not picking it because I did want to send at least an older song, which unfortunetly ended up not happening. But it was going to be ::fi Sonja Lumme until I changed my mind at the very last minute because I did not want to flop with any country :p Very happy with the result of my ::sk Horehronie as well in particular, I feared it could be my least voted entry. And as for ::ba Lelja I knew it would end up doing pretty well. It's still one of the most memorable ESC ballads of recent times, 8 years after. Thanks to everyone that voted for my entries!

About the semis, a bit gutted that this edition did not see ::is through the final at last. Denmark T() And still flabbergasted about the underappreciation of ::ie Heartbeat. What's the beef, really? :lol:

I also agree with the comment about ::il having to be rather disappointed with their ending position in the final. All the songs I gave points to ended up doing pretty well, except for ::ee Once in a lifetime, which was a bit surprising, since it did pretty well recently in some other game around here in the forum. But yes, the big surprise is clearly ::pt Se eu te pudesse abraçar. It's part of that restricted group of decent songs that my country ever sent to ESC, bearing in mind the terrible historical. I thought it would not do well for being a bit dated and again for being one of those songs that if you are able to understand (or go through the trouble of translating) the lyrics, they have that very "Portuguese" feeling that we'll probably be eternally trying to let shine through in ESC songs, about us being a folk of "forced" emigrants and how sad of a thing that is. The song was not "dressed" in drama though, rather in an easy listening formula with jolly traditional guitars all around - which makes me understand why it did this well on the other hand. And I hadn't noticed 1980 representative ::pt José Cid was also on stage performing in the background until I watched the video for the song again because of this contest :lol: He was the author for this song too and now it makes perfect sense, it does feel very much like a Cid song. But his own entry is still far more appreciated around these parts and I'd include myself in that.

This was fun anyway, already looking forward to the 4th edition :)

Must say that as78 could have had the most unlucky edition ever with having songs at 11th place in both semis and one at 12th and still no song of his qualified...:(

EYCC will for sure be back, don't know when yet, but in a not too distant future! ;)
