To help me rank all 42 songs, I made up a contest where ESC songs are pitted against each other in 1-1 battles (in the same way as the FA Cup, or the latter stages of the World Cup or Euro tournaments). Pairing off the songs randomly, 20 random songs take part in the first round, 22 have a bye. The 10 winners then join the 22 byed songs, then it's a straight knock-out till 1 song wins. Obviously as the draw is random, some early round ties will have 2 awesome songs, and some later round ties will have 2 songs that arent so awesome, but thats all part of the fun ^^ Here's what I ended up with

(The scores just indicate who won)

Round 1:
::at 1-0 ::se
::uk 0-1 ::it
::mk 1-0 ::pt
::de 1-0 ::fr
::ie 0-1 ::ru
::lt 0-1 ::il
::es 0-1 ::be
::sm 0-1 ::dk
::ge 1-0 ::ro
::ee 0-1 ::tr

Round 2:
::at 1-0 ::ba
::it 1-0 ::rs
::mk 1-0 ::az
::de 0-1 ::is
::il 1-0 ::mt
::be 0-1 ::md
::dk 1-0 ::gr
::ge 1-0 ::me
::tr 1-0 ::cy
::be 1-0 ::hu
::nl 1-0 ::ua
::sk 1-0 ::no
::fi 0-1 ::ch
::al 0-1 ::sl
::lv 1-0 ::bg

Round 3:
::at 1-0 ::it
::mk 0-1 ::is
::ru 0-1 ::il
::md 0-1 ::dk
::ge 0-1 ::tr
::by 1-0 ::nl
::sk 0-1 ::ch
::sl 0-1 ::lv

Round 4:
::at 0-1 ::is
::il 1-0 ::dk
::tr 0-1 ::by
::ch 1-0 ::lv

Semi finals:
::is 0-1 ::il
::by 0-1 ::ch

3rd place play-off:
::is 1-1 ::by (a draw)

Final:
::il 0-1 ::ch

Interesting results. I dont like the Latvian song, but it made it's way to Round 4 by beating weaker songs. Likewise Macedonia made it to Round 3 by beating weaker songs, whereas Hungary (a song I really like) got put out at the first opportunity by being drawn against a much better song.

OK, I'll try a little different method where I'll let all 42 songs compete in the first round.

The randomized matches are the following:


ROUND 1

::by 0-1 ::mk
::sk 1-0 ::ie
::lv 0-1 ::az
::uk 0-1 ::hu
::ro 0-1 ::pt
::de 1-0 ::ru
::gr 0-1 ::ua
::fr 0-1 ::lt
::ge 0-1 ::es
::sl 1-0 ::dk
::ch 0-1 ::is
::il 0-1 ::ee
::se 0-1 ::be
::no 0-1 ::at
::it 0-1 ::rs
::nl 1-0 ::bg
::sm 1-0 ::cy
::fi 1-0 ::mt
::hr 0-1 ::md
::tr 0-1 ::al
::me 0-1 ::ba

That would make 21 songs passing on to the next round so I'll kick out ::ua.

Finally, my winners of round 1 are:

::mk F.Y.R. Macedonia
::sk Slovakia
::az Azerbaijan
::hu Hungary
::pt Portugal
::de Germany
::lt Lithuania
::es Spain
::sl Slovenia
::is Iceland
::ee Estonia
::be Belgium
::at Austria
::rs Serbia
::nl The Netherlands
::sm San Marino
::fi Finland
::md Moldova
::al Albania
::ba Bosnia & Herzegovina

It's better when all countries compete in the first round.

So,randomized matches are following :D

ROUND 1

::fr 1 - 0 ::by
::se 1 - 0 ::hu
::pt 0 - 1 ::dk
::ch 0 - 1 ::it
::ba 0 - 1 ::es
::md 1 - 0 ::ru
::be 1 - 0 ::gr
::rs 0 - 1 ::de
::nl 1 - 0 ::ge
::fi 1 - 0 ::al
::mt 0 - 1 ::cy
::uk 0 - 1 ::ie
::is 1 - 0 ::ua
::at 0 - 1 ::ee
::sm 0 - 1 ::hr
::ro 1 - 0 ::mk
::sl 1 - 0 ::bg
::lt 0 - 1 ::az
::no 0 - 1 ::tr
::sk 1 - 0 ::me
::lv 1 - 0 ::il

That would make 21 songs passing in the round 2 , so i will kick out ::sk

So there are 20 countries passing from Round 1 to Round 2 (in alphabetical order) :

::az AZERBAIJAN
::be BELGIUM
::hr CROATIA
::cy CYPRUS
::dk DENMARK
::ee ESTONIA
::fi FINLAND
