View Full Version : Alternative top. 10's : Pick your favorites from all national selections.

19th June 2012, 17:25
Ever imagined the different outcome of an ESC edition had countries chosen other entries (or stick to original versions)? Well, now you could hypothetically contribute to that alternative ESC.

So, How would your ESC 2012 top. 10 look like if you could pick any entry of your choice from the national selections? You can, of course, pick the winners (actual entries) aswell. The rules are simple, but you can still just have one entry / country. You can make your ranking as a simple top. 10 or with the ESC points, it's up to you, but just rank a top. 10. If you want you can highlight some other entries, especially if the purpose is to show entries where you think countries chose the wrong ones, but this is up to you.

Also ALL countries are included, so it doesn't matter which ones made it to the final or not. When it comes to Italy, you can chose any song from Sanremo 2012. You can of course switch original versions of songs aswell, for instance if you include the original version of the Belarussian entry in your top. 10, but please state then which version it is you use. This, of course, also apply to different language versions of songs. Remixes and versions not used in either national selections or ESC can't be included in here, but I'll make an exception when it comes to different language versions of songs as long as they're official language versions (you can't come up with your own :lol:). You can also provide some info on the non-ESC entries if you want.

Confused? It's actually an easy task (as long as you actually heard the songs in the national selections). To illustrate it.. here is...
