View Full Version : ESC United's National Final revotes - Our ideal Eurovision! (Currently Open: Spain)

28th January 2017, 10:06
Welcome everyone to escYOUnited’s National Final project, where we pick our ideal entrants! :D

As we’re nearing the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, most eurofans get caught up in all different national selection shows. And as we know, fans often don’t share the general public’s taste. And as we want to let you fans have a voice as well, we have organised this review and re-vote to see what our forum’s ideal Eurovision would look like!

Here’s how it will work! For every selection show we get to review, a panel consisting of ESC United-writers will review the entries and live performances and cast their votes (in Eurovision-style where possible). Then, a poll will open for all forum members, where all of you can cast your vote, to simulate a televoting segment. All votes cast will be added up, and points will be divided based on the percentage of votes an entry received.

Example: : If 5 writers cast their votes in Eurovision style, and thereby divide (5 x 58 = ) 290 points, a song that has earned ten percent of televotes will receive 29 points.

Both the reviews and voting results will be presented through an article on the main site. That's the info for now, let's start this revote!

You can currently cast your votes in ::es Objetivo Eurovisión

Manel Navarro - Do It for Your Lover
LeKlein - Ouch!
Paula Rojo - Lo Que Nunca Fue
Mario Jefferson - Spin My Head
Maika - Momento Critico
Mirela - Contigo

The current panel consists of: (provisional list!)
::nl Ferdi ( Dutchball )
::uk Kai ( RainyWoods )
::uk Sean ( Sean )
::no Ole ( Ringdalen )

Vote here (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=58b9f30be4b07adbd01f842d) . There is no limit on the amount of votes you can cast, but please only vote once!

The deadline to vote is Tuesday the 7th of March, 20.00 CET

Hope you all will enjoy! :D

A bit over 24 hours left! We have 15 voters as of now, who have cast a total of 29 votes. You can keep voting until tomorrow 20.00 CET. You can expect reviews of the first 8 entries to go online a little after that! :D

31st January 2017, 04:30
Votes sent! I really love the way this is planned out - looks like a lot of fun, and it'd be great to have it as a new annual forum tradition if it works out. Hoping for the best!

By the way, Albania: please give us some studio versions for this year, I still can't find any for my big favourites xcry

31st January 2017, 22:38

The first posts will be updated in a while! :D

4th February 2017, 22:45
When you've calmed down about Melodifestivalen, A Dal and what not, remember tomorrow is your last chance to cast some votes in our poll for the Belarussian revote! You have about 22 hours left!

6th February 2017, 00:21
The first ::by reviews can be read here! (http://escunited.com/2017/02/05/esc-uniteds-revotes-8-songs-from-belarus-reviewed/)

The results and remaining 5 reviews will be uploaded tomorrow which is also when the new poll will open... we're heading to the UK ::uk next! xheya

10th February 2017, 19:49
I'm so sorry for the break in between the Belarussian results and the next poll xrose Anyway, we're back on track with a poll open for the UK's national selection, which was won by Lucie Jones and Never Give Up On You. Will she still come out of our revote victorious? Time to decide so!

You can vote Here (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=589dfb32e4b0da508adbd879) before Tuesday the 14th of February! :D We're hoping to get some more voters than last time, so please cast your votes!

16th February 2017, 22:29
And we're back in business! Calvin, Kai and I reviewed the songs from Eurovision: You Decide and voted, while 7 people cast televotes. Read everything here! (http://escunited.com/2017/02/16/esc-uniteds-nf-revotes-eurovision-you-decide-reviews-and-results/)

Next up is ::fi Uuden Musiikkin Kilpailu. The first post will be updated shortly with participants and the voting link, which you can also find here. (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=58a60a86e4b0c90e576b03b7)

Calvin will most likely take a small break from the project, which means he won't submit any reviews this round. But meanwhile, Sean and Ole will join Kai and me! xheya

17th February 2017, 07:26
Voted for the UMK songs!

17th February 2017, 09:26
Poor and underrated Holly Brewer, at least jury members like her entry.

17th February 2017, 18:48
Voted for the UMK selection today. Would like to see this promoted more.

17th February 2017, 19:00

21st February 2017, 18:03
Thank you to all of the above xheya xheya

Meanwhile there's 5 hours left until I close the UMK poll (so at 22 CET). If you haven't filled it out yet, take those few minutes and help us pick our ideal participant! xheat

23rd February 2017, 17:44
We're back for ::chxheat

At the start of this month, the Swiss people chose Timebelle with "Apollo" to represent them at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. The group won with a landslide percentage, almost picking up 50% of the votes, finishing with a 47.88% share. Did the people make the right decision though? It's now your turn to have your say, along with the ESC#YOUNITED jury. What song will make it to our ideal Eurovision?

Click HERE (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=58aef7fce4b08a7fc53a9d60) to cast your vote. You have until next Thursday, 22 CET.

2nd March 2017, 00:26
Well, oops! :oops: planning went wrong and I forgot to provide you with the links to the reviews and results for Finland. Don't worry, they are available in the second post of the thread now!

Furthermore I'd like to remind you all he hee mind hat you have until 22.00 CET tomorrow to cast your (tele)vote for Die Entscheidungsshow in our poll; see the post above! :D

4th March 2017, 01:06
Hello everyone! While Kai is busy with the results of the ::ch revote, I'll start the next one. It's time to travel south and visit Spain!

A while ago Spain selected Manel Navarro and Do It for Your Lover after Manel controversially won the selection against televote favorite Mirela. Now it's time for you to weigh in. Do you think the juries made the right call? Or do you side with Mirela and the televoters? Or do you prefer another entry? Vote for all of your favorites here (http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=58b9f30be4b07adbd01f842d) before next Tuesday, 20.00 CET! xheya
