Hello everyone and welcome to the 3rd edition of Festival De National. Here will a number of songs from Eurovisions beloved national finals fight out to be the best song that never got to the grand song contest. You are now allowed to pick four of your favorite songs from the national finals all around Europe, from any year! Though there are some things you need to follow though.

I want you to send me a RANKED list from 1 to 4, where 1 means the song that you want to send the most. ALL 4 SONGS has to come from four different years. If two people enter the same song/artist it will be a draw and the loser will get a song which is next in the list. There are 64 songs that have already been entered in previous editions; you can see them in the next post below. You will know which entries that got entered when the deadline ends.
PS. ALL SONGS MUST HAVE A LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM THE NATIONAL FINAL PROGRAM ITSELF, EITHER ON YOUTUBE, VIMEO OR DAILYMOTION! Auditions are allowed! DS.

The new thing this edition is that it will be totally open to send songs till the deadline ends, which means that more than 16 people may join. That means also that it can be more than 32 entries this edition! If it will be 36 or 40 (the maximum amount of songs to get entered) depends on how many are entering (everyone should have at least two songs in the contest). Also, to make all semis as even as possible, some might even get to have 3 songs on their list entered. That will be decided by a draw. If we doesn't get to be 16 people joining, then we stay with the normal 32 songs. ;)

It's now decided that it will be more finalists!

In every semi, still the top 2 will reach the grand final. But instead of two songs going to the 2nd chance, it will now be the songs that reached 3rd to 5th place that will go through to the 2nd chance. So instead it will be 6 duels instead of 4, where the 3rd place in a semi will be up against a 5th place in an another semi. The ones that ends 4th will be up against an another 4th place from an another semi. This means that in the final we will have 16 songs:

8 direct finalists (top 2 in semi)
6 duel winners in 2nd chance
1 Lucky loser, the one lose it's duel, but has the most points in the normal voting
1 Winner's choice, the song that missed the final but gets a 2nd chance by the person sending last editions winning song - RainyWoods.

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 Friday the 12th at 21 CET!

Also, the hosting cities has been randomly selected, they are as follows:
Semi 1 – Jerusalem, Israel
Semi 2 – Oslo, Norway
Semi 3 – Zürich, Switzerland
Semi 4 – Riga, Latvia
2nd Chance – Košice, Slovakia
Final – Sofia, Bulgaria

WELCOME TO SOFIA!

PS. ALL SONGS MUST HAVE A LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM THE NATIONAL FINAL PROGRAM ITSELF

xcry1 I'll never get to debut Sasha Bognibov or mastermind a Jo Zette comeback:(


I'm trying to come up with a list now. I know my number 1 (if lavieenrose dare steals it from me...) but i'm having trouble with deciding on the other songs that will make up my list. Only six places left though so I gotta be quick.


edit: just sent mine in. I actually fear my choices 1, 2 and 3 potentially being pinched as there are individuals I know that love them too.

My number 1 is a song we both like very much....... and of all the people taking part, I can only imagine you picking it. Oh gosh, well, if we both have picked the song i'm thinking of then it will be an exciting toss up to decide who gets itxheat

I was planning to send this particular song way in advance though. It was my goal to eventually send it from the very first edition but there were other songs I loved that I feared could have been pinched sooner, so I went with those first (good job I did as I won the last edition with one of those entries).

You've ruined my plans haven't you!? I can feel itxgaahxcry1

Good luck. May the bigger fan win (probably you). My #1 is also a song we both like very much, as is my #2 I think. I have two possibilities for your #1 in my head, and one of them is my #1. May we have picked different ones; I'm horrible in confrontational situations.

Good luck to you as well if we have picked the same song. I honestly don't mind at all if you've picked it and i'm excited to see what this other song is that I like as well. In fact, I might get two surprises if you haven't picked the same song as me. My number 2 is quite a left field pick that I don't think I was too fond of when I first heard it, but I love everything about it now. It's a real polarizing piece.

My #2 is the kind of lazy, obvious choice upon which I'd frown extensively if I hadn't made it. I feel horribly guilty about picking it (though not about loving it to pieces; it's a great song by a deity of a singer). It's just one I think you're on record as liking.

12th June 2015, 14:44
Still just two places left and just less than 6 and a half hours to go!

I can also announce that I have decided to have 40 songs this edition, despite we doesn't reach 20 people. So if not two more people join by tonight, I will draw 4 people of the ones that has sent in songs to me, these people will then have 3 songs to hope for! I have also decided that it will be more finalists thanks to that.

In every semi, still the top 2 will reach the grand final. But instead of two songs going to the 2nd chance, it will now be the songs that reached 3rd to 5th place that will go through to the 2nd chance. So instead it will be 6 duels instead of 4, where the 3rd place in a semi will be up against a 5th place in an another semi. The ones that ends 4th will be up against an another 4th place from an another semi. This means that in the final we will have 16 songs:

8 direct finalists (top 2 in semi)
6 duel winners in 2nd chance
1 Lucky loser, the one lose it's duel, but has the most points in the normal voting
1 Winner's choice, the song that missed the final but gets a 2nd chance by the person sending last editions winning song - RainyWoods.

I can also say that this edition looks pretty strong too with very different kinds of songs, so it will be fun to see how it will go! :D

12th June 2015, 15:43

So the draws has been made, and this is the conclusion. The people that got a extra song this edition was EscGeek and Lenalite! Congratulations till that! :D

So now here is the list. The songs that was higher for you in the rankings can have been taken away for several reasons. One can be that your artist/song might have been picked by some other person. It can also be that your song doesn't have a live performance and has for that reason been put aside for this edition.

Here are the people that has chosen the songs, and which rank the songs had:

Adrian 1, 3
anselm 1, 2
AshleyWright 2, 3

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's what happened. When you said that I was the only other one who could've picked it, a glimmer of hope popped into my mind that it could've been [SONG REDACTED UNTIL FDN ENDS] instead, but 'twas unwarranted. I know it's in good hands, though. :)

Well I hope you're happy with your song number 3. I wouldn't have minded at all had I got my number 3 instead actually, as it probably would have had an extremely good chance of doing very well. I'm slightly worried about my two songs i've got now.

Anyway, good luck to you and everyone else as well. I can't wait to hear the first batch of songs tonight:p

I'm happy with the results from the first semi, but then again, the only thing required to make me happy was a certain song sailing through to the finalxheat

What the heck is with this second semi!? It's just flat out awesome! That's four songs I count now in this edition already that I had planned for future editions, three of which are taking part in this semixgaah

I wish my song was competing in the first semi instead of this one. Not sure how it's going to go but i'll remain hopeful.

17th June 2015, 22:51
Hmmm the results are pretty good. An entry that some (surely lovable) swine stole from me has made it straight through, although it's my own fault for making it my number 3 choice. I always knew Alcazar would sail through to the final but Thomai making it as well is a pleasant surprise. Thank goodness Winny Puhh get a second chance as the likelihood of them failing seemed quite high. I'm sad to see Samanta out, but it might not be the end for her:rolleyes:

Surprised as well to see Amanda in second last. I thought she'd probably be in the final with Alcazar. Minus One shouldn't have been dead last also:(

Just sent my votes in at such an ungodly hour. My 12 was incredibly easy (for obvious reasons:rolleyes:) and there were no other big favourites of mine here to challenge it, or new surprises. I did find difficulty though in ranking my 10, 8, 6, 4 and 2 songs. I sort of liked them all and they were on a very equal playing field. Perhaps some where growers (in fact, surely my own entry is a grower actually, rather worryingly). Only one song here i'm desperate to see pass, but many i'd welcome along with it, even a couple I gave 0 to. The results tonight should be interesting.

Final: Rezarta Smaja and Nightwish
2nd Chance: Queentastic, Evelin Samuel and Nusa Derenda
6th Blue Café
7th Alyosha
8th Isa
9th Pernilla Wahlgren
10th Hyrise


So now I will shortly explain what is now going to happen. We are now moving over to Slovakia and to see the 2nd chance. In the 2nd chance 12 songs are divided into 6 duels, where our 3rd placers will be up against 5th placers and 4th placers against each other. Of course the songs in the duels will be from the different semis.
You will vote for your fave in each duel. Later you will have to vote in ESC-style with all the songs against each other, this voting will be used to put forward the "Lucky Loser", the song that loses it's duel but has got the most points in this voting.

When the 2nd chance has started I will send a PM to RainyWoods, since he was the person that selected the winning song last edition, he has the power to SAVE a song, that either has been eliminated or is going to be eliminated in the 2nd chance. He can select any song except the two songs he has chosen himself!

The 2nd chance will be up in a bit! :D

Schlagerman1
23rd June 2015, 22:34
So the 2nd chance has now begun! :D So now vote for your faves AND send me also in ESC-style! ;) Deadline ends on Friday!

All my picks won their duels apart from Winny Puhh, so I shouldn't be too down I suppose. It's just I was desperate for them to reach the final:( They were always a massive risk though. Lot's of 0's I imagine, but also a fair few very high points too.

Really happy to be given the privilege of picking the Winners Choice song. It was an incredibly easy choice for me, and i'd made my mind up as soon as I heard all the songs competing in the fourth round. I love Samanta Tinaxheat

I found the songs in 3 of the 4 rounds to be a bit of letdown really (for my tastes anyway), but somehow this has all led to a mega final. Woah, there will actually be overspill from my top 10. Songs I like are going to have to miss outxcry1 I think the only song I really loved that I lost was from Winny Puhh. All my other favourites are here and competing still, and a couple of the songs have really grown on me also. This is a very strong, open final. It's anyone's game almost here. I wouldn't like to bet on who's going to take it.

I'm trying to do my points now but it's just so hard. I dislike nothing in the final, and just like lavieenrose, i'll be left with four pointless songs that would have received decent points from me in a different situation, but there are just too many of my favourite NF songs here competing.

It is the final night as you all know, results will come in a while, but the guests are now entering the Arameec Arena once again to see who will be our third winner of the Festival De National. We got to talk to some of the guests on the red carpet when they were on the way of entering the arena.

http://s.rozali.com/p/p/o/poli-genova-90494-500x334.jpg

First guest of the night was Poli Genova, who missed to qualify to the final on home soil after ended 7th in the semifinal in Oslo. She is still delighted with having the festival in Bulgaria and she has a clear favorite to win the whole thing.
- No question for me, it has to be Karin Park and the beautiful “Human Beings”. Such an original song with a deep message, has to be among the top places tonight.

https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/d5/f4/fc/d5f4fc4065d7ce6660c6e372e68b4cae.jpg

One of the guests with a more edgy outfit was Croatian singer Severina, who came 6th in the semifinal held in Zürich this edition. She was really in a good mood and looked forward for the results. She has also a fave, which is maybe a surprising one.
- I just love Lena Philipsson with that Swedish song. When I was in Zürich, that song was ringing in my ears all day long, even more than my own song haha, so yeah It is really a great song!

http://schlagerbloggen.hant.se/wp-content/uploads/sites/9/2015/02/IMG_0374-e1424577461335-600x800.jpg

Pretty in black this evening were the Swedish youngster Isa, who only came 8th in the last semi in Riga. She tells us a secret, that she is in love with the greek language.
- I love the language, the people, and also really like both greek songs in the final, but if I have to pick one, I must say Jazz & Sirtaki. That song is fierce and makes you wanna jump up on stage and join their dance!

http://static.skynetblogs.be/media/4087/dyn010_original_350_299_pjpeg__ec0bbdc0cff397e32be 2130881e1ed54.2.jpg

Here you see Hanny D performing her song “Près De Toi” who came 9th in the first semi in Jerusalem. During the break of her appointment as pre-show singer for this Final results show, she got some words with her about what she think about tonight.
- I think it will be a tight race for the win, but I am putting my money on Dinah Nah and “Make Me (La La La)”. I think that a song that really feels like a hit in the face is a strong entry and that is for sure the song that has the most of it.

http://img3.ekrana.info/1203/sofi_marinova_1.jpg

Of course many Bulgarian stars came since the final was held here, and what wouldn’t a party be without the big fan-fave from Eurovision 2012 Sofi Marinova. She said that this final is amazing and she has a hard time to pick a fave, but that…
- I was so happy to see when “Stay” and Samanta Tina got a 2nd chance and joined the great final. I think it is a superb song, would even love to do that song myself!

http://www.tekstevideo.com/img_upz/artpic_full/23357.jpg

And of course, some stars always enter late, and this time it was last editions winner Lindita Halimi who was late. She apologized so much and was kind enough to give us her favorite one in the final.
- I really like “Hopa’ pa-rei”. It would be so cool if a song that went through the 2nd chance would win again!

Opinions divides it seems, as we are getting closer to know who the winner of the 3rd Festival De National is! :D

It's got an early lead but I think something that meets in the middle of all our tastes will win this time, like was the case in the first edition. I'd be shocked if Dinah were to run away with it anyway.

With only a few votes left and being realistic, I hope that "Human Beings" takes it. I'd be slightly bugged though that I didn't send it this time myself. I had it planned for the next edition actually as we can only send one song from a particular year. I like Dinah Nah's song but there were quite a few I liked a lot more here competing. Karin's song is very special.

A great winner, I will confess i'm a bit annoyed it win because I put it down as my number 1 entry - and didn't get it. Human Beings being second is not unexpected but i still hate that song. As for my songs, I'm happy I made the top 5 with Alcazar, but I hoped Chen would have done much better. Thank you for a great show Schlagerman1. :D

1st July 2015, 23:40
I'm really happy to see Karin in 2nd, but overall the results are a bit disappointing, although it was very tight in the middle.

Rezarta was a risk as she probably didn't have the most well known or loved NF song competing here, but when I saw her sail through to the final, I really fancied her chances. 10th is a letdown but 62 points isn't bad at all. Thanks for those.

Well done to Dinah and whoever sent her. Great song and one of the first times i've really fallen for a song of it's type. I'm shocked we've had two dance songs win in a row though.

I enjoyed both your choices and I feel really bad about the fact I gave them both 0 in the final, but I liked 14 of the 16 songs competing. Sorry about that Anna:( "Dansa i Neon" is a classic and has done very well though. Well done.

1st July 2015, 23:56
So time to watch how it went down in the semis! :D

Semifinal 1:

http://oi58.tinypic.com/il934h.jpg
Karin Park won, just 10 points over Chen Aharoni. Måns was 14 points from a place in the final. Gipsy.cz was just 9 points behind Mihaela Andrei about a place in the 2nd chance. My Hope was almost without hope, last with just 29 points.


Semifinal 2:

http://oi60.tinypic.com/68tzdi.jpg
Alcazar basically crushed the opposition in the 2nd semi, winning with a margin of 46 points!! It was really tight about the 2nd place, where both Kostas Martakis and Winny Puhh was just 4 points behind Thomai! Close about 5th place as well, where Doce beat Samanta Tina with 5 points...but as you can see the green number on "Stay" meant that she got the free-pass to the final, something Doce never qualifed to. Minus One and their "Shine" got the last place, but with a respectful amount of points, 50.


Semifinal 3:

http://oi61.tinypic.com/2d9tith.jpg
Dinah Nah won the semi, but not with the same margin as Alcazar did. But 14 points is enough to beat Lena Philipsson in 2nd place. 3rd place Emma Marrone got beaten with just 8 points in the end. Here it was really tight about the 2nd chance spots where 4 songs was within 8 points. Especially about the 5th place where Iiris got it with 1p ahead of Severina and Rosanna Lints.
Sopho Khavalashi did her best in her Fantasy Land, but wasn't enough for her, got last place with 39 points.


Semifinal 4:

http://oi59.tinypic.com/9icqj7.jpg
Nightwish got the win in the last semi, having beaten Rezarta Smaja with 17 points. Once again it was a extremly tight semi, where Rezarta won the 2nd place with just 2 points ahead of Nusa Derenda and 3 points ahead of Queentastic. Just 12 points behind her was Evelin Samuel, who grabbed the 5th place in the last votes, 6 points over Blue Café and Alyosha. Hyrise didn't rise high at all, and got last place with 35 points.


2nd chance:

http://oi61.tinypic.com/9kmn15.jpg
Here you see how the duels went and that Kostas Martakis won the Lucky Loser place. If a normal voting was just taken place, then Mihaela Andrei would have won this, and Coral would have qualified instead of Nusa Derenda. Interesting to see just the 4th duel, where Nusa Derenda won the duel-vote, but that Doce got more points in the Lucky Loser one.


FINAL:

http://oi62.tinypic.com/351xs2o.jpg
And there you got the final votes again, it got decided on the very last vote when MARCOMEN gave 10 to Dinah Nah.

Winny Puhh were so, so close in their semi and then sadly a huge drop of support for them in the duels. I knew they would lose their head to head but I thought there would be a chance for them to get through on points, but that really wasn't the case.


Anyway, thank you Schlagerman for yet another wonderful edition of one of the most fun forum contests to play. It was loads of fun once again. So many National Final gemsxheart

So the top 3 pickers this time was MARCOMEN, Lenalite and DaFlo! This means that for the next edition, MARCOMEN can pick the winner's choice (as long he is of course entering the contest next time and voting in at least 3 out of the 5 first shows), if he declines it moves down to Lenalite and if not her than Daflo and if not then it moves down further! :D


I tagged all of you since you might be interested in seeing the scoreboards further above the page.
Now it is over and we got a winner. Thanks everyone for sending songs and voted and of course it will be a new edition, but now I will take a break for like a month or so, but it will be back in August again! Till then, take care everyone! :D
