Just a question. If the winning country is prequalified to the final shouldn't the winning member get some favour too? It don't need to be prequalified but maybe in another way? It's just a thought.

Sorry for being the last one. I hope I haven't delayed things too much. However, by taking my time I have managed to select the most extraordinary, avant-garde ethno treat for you all. You seriously are all going to have a shock. This song was way ahead of it's time and still is today, but with such an open minded, experimental bunch of us here... perhaps it's the songs time to shine? I certainly hope so:rolleyes:




Nah, i'm literally doomed this editionxcry1

7 pts - xup
6 pts - xup
5 pts - ::by
4 pts - xup
3 pts - xup
2 pts - xup
1 pt - ::mc

7/10, think I hadn't done this well in a while. That's a really unfortunate way for the Tolmachevy sisters to miss out on the final :( But then again we don't know yet who was tied with them at 41 pts there, it could have been one of our chosen songs..
They definitely were the most deserving set of twins in this semi by far though. Two days in a row living on a Jedwardian nightmare, ugh.
::ba qualifying was the neat surprise of this semi, I would say.
And I'd personally switch ::by for that bland corporate rock song of ::hu. "Hasta la vista" is quite underrated and I fail to understand why. Is it the Schwarzneggerian hook line? xthink

But in overall I'm mostly pleased with the outcome of this first semi, with my song also making it through. My qualifying rate is still sky rocket high xyes

I'm jealous of your qualifying ratexsnooty

I want to aim for at least a perfect two contests in a row. Hopefully my song from this semi makes it. I think it might as it's fun. Thank goodness I didn't get Russia for a third time as I would have picked Tolmachevy Twins and have personally failed the country three timesxrofl


Oh and "Hasta la Vista" is ok I suppose. I almost gave it points but it was such a bad semi I just wanted to troll with my points xqueenbitch

6/10 usually wouldn't bother me if I at least got a song I really cared about through. There were two here and they both failedxgaah

There is the added novelty however of "Leto Svet" making it through to the final. I would campaign for their win in protest if it were not for the fact that you're all about to see the most epic of epic entries making it's debut now. Prepare to be dazzled:rolleyes:

I see a lack of points for Austria's iconic Bettina Soriat.

Bettina is busting those grooves. Freestyling it to the extreme with the hottest jam and her empowering lyrics.

"Sex with you passes by as fast as starship enterprise" and that's not what Bettina wants as that's "Bad man, bad loving"


You all should be ashamed of yourselves. I'll sue. This is Ricki Lake era realness and should have made the final. 12 points from me... 6 points from the rest of you. Shamefulxsnooty



Let's give Bettina her swan song though. One last time, I present to you all Bettina with her hit song "One Step".

Here's how I did:

12 pts - ::cy
10 pts - xup
8 pts - xup
7 pts - xup
6 pts - ::rs
5 pts - xup
4 pts - xup
3 pts - xup
2 pts - ::ro
1 pt - xup

So again a 7/10. Sucks to lose 2 songs out of top 5 though, specially highest pointer and personal choice. The semi was tough so I feared I'd lose one song out at least. "Teriazoume" is so badly underrated, both at ESC and elsewhere. It was by a long shot my personal winner of 1992. In this game's context I think that it could have benefited from a better recap moment choice, her choreography and the way she engages with the camera are half of the performance. It wasn't that far though, but I had my hopes that Evridki's ESC icon status would have helped her making through as it did with a couple of other entries there.

As for Moje 3, same as always. With only two actual big fans of the song in this game, it would have always been about adding up scrap points from the occasional voter. Unfortunately still quite far off and I think that the majority is still judging this song through wardrobe choices and stage performance and forgetting about what should really matter, vocal talent and musical quality - which for sure should have at least granted them a place at last year's ESC final.

I can't stand that Latvia song doing well twice in the same week. Last time around it was Jedward. Some people just...xfacepalm At least the one "joke" entry that is worthwhile finally made it, "Leto svet" has more credibility than that pirate masquerade non-sense.

Suppose I should still be satisfied for pulling a 14/20 in overall and having 2 songs making it to the final as per average/usual. I think that was only my 3rd song to fail to make it to the final xthink

RainyWoods
30th October 2014, 20:22
Edward I wonder actually how people go about choosing who to give their points to? I personally watch the recap video at least a couple of times and go through each of the songs in full as well. I'm wondering if everyone else also does this or if they just watch the recap? Schlagerman has been doing a brilliant job with the recap videos and it's one of my favourite parts of the game. Sometimes though I do notice some songs don't have perhaps the best moment shown. Like for instance in the last contest, Lynsey De Paul & Mike Moran's Rockbottom was just one long, far away shot of the camera panning out. We missed Lynsey's wonderfully expressive face. Of course, this doesn't matter though if everyone is familiarising themselves with the songs.

It is a shame for Cyprus. It's the first time i've heard that entry and I really liked it.

As for Serbia, I just don't find the song appealing. It's not about the clothes. It's just not pleasant to my ears.. I suppose in the same way Aurela Gace must not have been pleasant to everyones ears:(

Schlagerman1
30th October 2014, 22:12
I have got six votes so far! Continue to vote! :)

About the recaps I am trying my best to make so good parts as possible, trying to bring out the most powerful parts, sometimes with a little verse, but mostly with focus on the chorus. I also often take the 1st or 2nd chorus for the semis and in the final takes one of the latest choruses together with a high note, depending on the quality of it. I also try to look so I get different angles to it, but I focus mostly on the song itself. Cyprus 1992 for example was a really hard song to pick part to, I wasn't happy with the clip, but didn't really know what else to take, since the chorus is pretty minimal in the beginning of the song.
I can't really effect how everyone is doing, I hope though that the people that isn't familiar to some of the songs take at least one listen to them in full before voting, cause that would make the results as good as possible. :)

I'm so intrigued to see how this edition is going to turn out. I wouldn't like to gamble on who the winner is going to be. You've got here probably the most well known Eurovision song of all time and a couple of REALLY famous diva's. Knowing us lot here though, I say we'll go for someone else. There are some of the most genius novelty entries, epic ethnic hits and some truly beautiful golden oldies. The diva songs have aged terribly in my opinion so I really hope for something richer, more timeless in sound or fun.

Send Charlotte Perrelli "Hero" or The Ark and you can have my 12.. failing that, send Alcazar to the actual contest and hear my loud high pitched screams of excitement from wherever you are in the world at that moment.

I love Sweden. I just don't love every single Swedish entry. Certainly not the ones being chosen for this game. "Waterloo" is a classic but it's overplayed in my country and slightly aggravates me.

Beautiful song, wonderful winner. Bittersweet as I might have had the chance to win if I had gone for this Gigliolla song when I had the opportunity to pick for Italy a couple of games ago. This ones very timeless but "Si" is just everything I adore. So luscious and dreamy. I don't think I did too well with it either which was a shame.

So time for the scoreboards!


SEMI 1:
http://oi62.tinypic.com/14ux83s.jpg

In the first semi, Iceland won with a pretty big margin with Switzerland 2nd and Ukraine 3rd. Yugoslavia was the song that tied with Russia, but went through with more voters for it. Belgium got last place, despite achieving as much as 22 points.

SEMI 2:
http://oi60.tinypic.com/294400k.jpg
Norway won the semifinal, ahead of Croatia and Latvia. Greece was the song that won over Israel by one point. The last vote from MARCOMEN made an Estonian success over the Israelis in this semi. Azerbaijan came last here, with just 10 points.

FINAL:
http://oi62.tinypic.com/11s013q.jpg
So Italy is now our first Big 5 winner, and also being our oldest winner to date (before it was Norway 1995). Iceland coming 2nd for the 2nd time in the contests history and Croatia is making their best placement with a 3rd place. The surprise of the edition has to be Estonia, coming from nowhere, manage to just qualify to the final and ending 7th. The biggest flops has to be Ukraine and Hungary, both earning pretty decent placements in the semi 3rd and 4th, but just manages to be 17th and 26th in the final.

Yeah, we all have different tastes. I forgive you for not giving The Netherlands Maggie MacNeal a single point:p












But I do NOT forgive you for being one of the very few not to show any love towards the iconic Turkish band Grup Pan, with their experimental hit "Bana Bana". I am shocked and appalled. It's clear you hate on Turkey. In fact, you all hate on Turkey. I was the only person to give Grup Pan a 12. You people must harbour a lot of hatred in your hearts for not rewarding such an extraordinary piece of music the full 12 it deserves. I am disgusted. No respect for Grup Pan and their mega hit. You can all Bana Bana off.

I feel the same about those two entries as well. All these diva ballads have aged not particularly well. I'm not a fan of Celine Dion. Abba are great but as you pointed out before, they have a lot better songs and that's our opinion. The opinions of two of about a dozen or slightly more people playing a fun little game on a hardcore Eurovision forum.

Silvia Night is great fun. She entered her song the year I officially became an obsessed fan and I loved following her. I thought her song was genius and it was brilliant to see all the reactions of the press around Europe. She really was a fantastic actress (although the character was rather mean). The song is still loads of fun. I'd have thought there would be more concern about Leto Svet beating Celine Dionxrofl2

You're right, i'm very jealous of your success. Ever since you beat my "Hora Din Moldova" i've held a bitter grudge against you. We came together just that one time I believe, when we supported Croatian legend Doris Dragovic with her entry "Maria Magdalena" sent by SuperGirl. That was the sole time we voted as one.

Sadly, since that moment we have been bitter rivals. I am jealous of your success. I send the legends too just like SuperGirl does. I've sent Maggie MacNeal, Alla Pugacheva, Cezar, Kejsi Tola, Suzy, Bettina Soriat.. they have all flopped. "Hora Din Moldova" has been my only top 5 along with some woman called Margaret Berger who I was forced to pick. I believe my Group Pan this game were well and truly robbed of their well deserved first place. I don't know how you get your success. I go with my heart and I fail. My brain told me to pick Anouk for this game and get my first win but my heart said "Hey, that Maggie MacNeal is kinda swell. What a charming little dramatic ditty about a wonderful little country. You should go for it". I'll never get a win. I'm doomed forever.


The only chance I think i've got left is to get France. The worst thing is that I obviously would have picked "Suus" (my favourite song ever) and "Everyway That I Can" had I been given the chance. Then there's also the mistake I made of picking the wrong Gigliola songxgaah

Still anselm did it clear that he is bothered with Sweden's popularity. If you really think people are voting for the songs they think are best then you are naive,

Silvia's Night's song isn't better than ABBA's and Celine's song. So yes I vote for song's too.

You clearly don't understand the meaning of subjectivity. There is no universal standard for what makes a good song. All songs are great, meh or terrible depending on who you ask. That Congratulations is not a better song is your opinion, just like it's the opinion of others that it is. That I even have to explain this is absurd.
