So send me four songs, all has to come from 4 different years between 1956-2015. You need to rank these four in the order you want them the most (your number 1 is your first choice and then 2 is 2nd and so on). If two people choose the same song or singer, it will be a draw and the one that lose it will have to pick its third choice and so on. If we don’t get a maximum of 16 people joining the contest, then a draw will be made to see which people will get a third choice in the contest.
This contest has pretty short deadlines, so you need to be prepared to vote within a few days. I have put a deadline to when you should stop sending songs; it ends on Thursday the 9th of April at midnight!
PS. When the deadline is over I will start looking for live performances of the songs. If I can't find a live performance for the entry, I will directly move down to the 3rd or 4th choice on the list!

I have allowed that you can vote for your own songs, but the draw will be fixed so you won't get more than 1 song in each semi. This is also a contest where the songs are in the focus and not the people, but if someone thinks that the other songs are too weak comparing to one of that persons own song, than you can of course give it 12 points. :mrgreen:

I don't how to feel about this :lol: I mean if one submits a song, it is highly likely that it is a song that one loves, so one's tempted to give it 12pts even if there is one song of his in the semi. I contemplated voting for other songs even if I didn't like them (ESC-style), but if people, failing that, are entitled to vote for themselves, then I may exercize the "rank the songs according to your taste, whoever submitted them" right too.

The weird thing is that in these two contest (this and Eurovision Your Choice Contest, were in both it is allowed to vote for your own songs) it is actually extremly rare to see people vote for their own songs (at least in giving them 12). When I started doing these contests, I was sure that it would be more often that would happen. So it does work at least and even if everyone would vote for their top fave, the right song would win in the end, cause then it would have been placed with 10 or 8 points by many. ;)

I get so embarrassed when sending in top points to my own songs, especially when two are competing in the same round. If people end up sending songs I love more, then of course i'll place them higher. It's just I get very lucky with my own choices usually. I'm sure I give myself 12 at least half the timexcrazy

Well, I guess it's fair enough if everyone does the same thing. We should consider the lineup of a particular semi objectively as if we weren't involved in the choice of the entries, which means that if the song you submitted is the best one of the bunch, then you shouldn't underrate it due to the conflict of interest it may seem to be. :mrgreen: So people shouldn't avoid voting for their own songs on purpose if there isn't anything better out there according to their tastes, otherwise the discrepancy in terms of voting patterns may hurt some entries in the qualification rounds.

I don't know if anyone has noticed this but in EYCC, I always tend to vote my own entries up in the semi final so they have a better chance of qualification then in the final i vote more fairly. xshifty

Yes, the most important thing to me is that everyone should be aware of that possibility. I wasn't so maybe other potential newbies in this game will know now. :)

These people should be condemned to listen to a "Leto Svet/Probka" mash-up on repeat for at least a week. Then they would recognize honest songs and acts like Jo Zette.

Just voted. I'm afraid I don't share the same enthusiasm most people seem to have for this first heat. I can't say that I really like anything here. There were two songs though that I found myself enjoying for the wrong reasons, one is particularly charming and would perhaps be a grower upon listening to it more (only listened to all the songs twice thus far). I actually ended up giving a song I hate pretty decent points, just because I felt it was only right to do so, considering the other songs that were competing. I hope things pick up in the next round. I'm sure it will.

Yes, for the most part, I didn't feel the "heat" either. :D Apart from one song that I moderately enjoy and that I could have sent actually. :o The rest goes from OK to meh to eww imo. However, while I hope I'll like more songs in the next rounds, I think there may be enough decent finalists out of this semi if the voting does not mess things up. :lol:

I liked almost every song except 2 of them. I think that those who submitted the songs have a very good taste :p some of them would IMO have done very well in the ESC and maybe even better than the winner of the respective national finals of that year.

I can't believe i'm saying this but Ace actually deserved the final if I compare everything about her song/performance to the others here. I'm still years later trying to work out just what it is about Sandra that makes her such a fan favourite. I find her music quite tepid. The 2nd chance winners are the two here I enjoyed most, one for the wrong reasons and the other genuinely had something quite charming about it. I can't really complain about the results. Poland and the other Estonian entry deserved to be higher though.

1999 Entry from Germany: Hör den Kindern enfach zu

Won the national final that year........ I demand that She is disqualified (again)

from Wikipedia:

Her final breakthrough came in 1999 with the German preselections for the Eurovision Song Contest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurovision_Song_Contest). She won, but her song “Hör den Kindern einfach zu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C3%B6r_den_Kindern_einfach_zu)” ("Just listen to the children") was disqualified because it was already released on an album by someone else. Her second try was in 2000 with the song “I Believe in God”, which finished in second place.

What a scandal

I have decided to let that song entered, cause it didn't qualify to Eurovision, even if the song was disqualified despite winning. I have also decided to include the Georgian entry, despite not even Georgia did compete in ESC 2009. I don't even think it is such a big fuss about this, I have let things be pretty open, cause in the end it is all about remembering songs that didn't get to be in Eurovision despite being in a national final. And about your post earlier, I have allowed audition performances as well, as long as it has to be in the show for Eurovision.

Yes, I think for sure this has been the strongest semi. I liked the second one for all the wrong reasons and the first one I thought was actually surprisingly weak. This third one genuinely had a good handful of very strong songs. I'm glad the ones I like managed to make it but it's a bit sad for Serbia. Estonia I enjoyed but I didn't think it was great, the same with Portugal.

I'm excited to see what the final round will have to offerxheat

Yes, I think for sure this has been the strongest semi. I liked the second one for all the wrong reasons and the first one I thought was actually surprisingly weak. This third one genuinely had a good handful of very strong songs. I'm glad the ones I like managed to make it but it's a bit sad for Serbia. Estonia I enjoyed but I didn't think it was great, the same with Portugal.

I had Serbia quite high in my ranking too, it'll be interesting to see who voted for what after the grand final by the way xthink

I can't wait either for the last round of "new" songs to be revealed. xheat

The problem with the Norwegian song is that I actually understand what they are singing ...... therefore I gave them 0 points

"Nebo" in ESC would have been something astonishing. I believe Serbia would have won ESC 2007 both with "Molitva" (like it happened) or "Nebo". It really was their year.

Except for two songs, this fourth semi-final is quite even.

To me, the 3rd semi was stronger than this one. I guess there are enough worthy potential qualifiers though
I don't know why but I feel like decent songs may miss out, I hope not.

So the final results are as follows:


Final: EKO and Electric Fence
2nd Chance: Lindita Halimi and Saša Lendero
5th Raffaela
6th Mad Show Boys
7th Helene Bøksle
8th CajsaLisa Ejemyr


So now, about my two surprises for this edition. Last edition, the songs in the 2nd chance were randomly put in 4 duels with a 3rd place and a 4th place from different semis up against each other. It will be like that this edition too, but not only 4 songs qualify from the 2nd chance...5 will actually! There is a new thing called "Lucky Loser" which is a song in the 2nd chance that lost it's battle, but qualifies with getting the most points out of all four losers. That requires that when you vote in the 2nd chance, you will not only vote for the fave in each duel, you have to give points to all songs like in a normal semi.

The 2nd suprise, is something called "Winner's choice". Last edition revallsay sent in the winning song "Fiddler On The Deck" by Santiano and as prize for doing that, she will pick a non-qualifying song that will join the other 13 in Lisbon! She can choose any of the songs that went out or is in the 2nd chance (though if she choose one of these, she has to give me reserve entries in case her choice do qualify). The only songs she cannot choose is the ones that she have been picking herself! Otherwise she can pick which she ever liked of the other ones! I will send her a list of the songs that is avalible to choose in a bit.

So in the end 14 songs instead of 12 will compete in Lisbon! The 2nd chance will be up in a bit! ;)

I genuinely liked all the songs here... but Lindita only got second chance?xwhat

Eko's "Red" is wonderful though. I'm happy to see that passing through especially after how dreadfully it did at Melodifestivalen last year. I think it's a real nice piece of Synthpop. I like Electric Fence as well. I remember routing for them back in 2013 but I had missed most of the performances when I joined the NF stream. When the results were revealed, I was like "WHAT!? Why the hell did they not win, who is this!?!?". Then a certain man stepped on stage for his winning reprise and I was like... :rolleyes:xqueenbitch

Really surprised to see Helene 7th. I thought she'd be one of the two qualifying to the final. It must have been pretty close points wise I imagine.

First you vote for your fave in each duel, you just have to write which song you prefer in the match. Then I also want you to rank all 8 songs, just a like a normal semi. Your duel faves doesn't have to be 12, 10, 8, 6, you can distribute those however you want. :)
