Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 03:36 PM



Just under an hour and a half until results commence at 6pm... which 40 countries will qualify and which 20 will fall at the final hurdle? ohmy.gif

In the mean time, let's have a little music...!


Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 03:42 PM

Lol I got a notification that you uploaded 'Boom Boom' to YouTube. Iconic x

Much excitement etc. (pretty confident I will have made it this time so watching out for some of my less secure faves)

Posted by: coi Sep 26 2019, 03:44 PM

Looking forward to it!

Hoping I've done enough especially after the hype from the other semi, hoping my faves have made it too.

It would be nice to qualify from quite a pop field but who knows! I only ever seem to get big points in the finals :')

Also I would be totally here for a Jade double

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:06 PM

I knew 'Mithi Mithi' was gonna be a very long shot </3 still here for it though (would have been my 5 pointer in semi 1). #BJSCSoWhite

Yay for Scherzland. x

FSR Rontvia: Lily Moore - Over You

Oh, well DONE!

Hi. I'm Jonas Styles. Just doing this now. Just tryinf to get an AQ!

Posted by: coi Sep 26 2019, 05:16 PM

Not really a surprise to see Hétköznapi out I guess. At least it didn't come last, that really would have been unfair!

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 05:17 PM

Semi 2



Kluminican Republic: KSHMR, B3nte & Badjack - The Spook Returns



Persephonia: Kćlan Mikla - Draumadís





Dobago: Fabrizio Parisi & MiYan feat. Belonoga - Sunbeams [29th, 14 points]



Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:17 PM

Land of DW was a lovely song but would likely have not qualified even with a better semi draw imo so with the really bad one it did get there was never a chance.

Hendinia is a good one, hopefully finally the one to give them a slightly bigger hit? FSR has been growing on me a bit too though it is a little Poundland Amy Winehouse.

edit: yay I qualified cheer.gif thanks for the early reveal although I was v confident this time anyway xx Klum is a good one too, 2 spooky songs through at once yay

Posted by: gooddelta Sep 26 2019, 05:19 PM

Hoo-rah, watching from work which is a first I think! So glad Lily is through wub.gif

No major surprises for me so far.

Posted by: Klimawechsel Sep 26 2019, 05:20 PM

yay the spook IS returning!

Persephonia was alright so not begrudging that a place in the final! Dobago and Tinnmark both deserved to be out so justice has been served sarcasm.gif


Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 05:20 PM

Semi 1



Vülkyria: Antony & Cleopatra - Why Don't You Just Call Me



Rolloland: UNKLE feat. Richard Ashcroft - Lonely Soul





United States of Jack: Becky G - Secrets [28th, 24 points]



Posted by: coi Sep 26 2019, 05:22 PM

Two great qualifiers there! Particularly glad to see Rolloland make it!

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:22 PM

sad.gif I did think this was a weaker fare than most songs Dobago has sent of the like but I didn’t expect it to be that low in the semi

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:23 PM

The 2 non-voters probably wouldn't have helped it but eeek at Becky G, another one I quite liked from USoJ... sad.gif

Vülkyria and Rolloland both pretty big growers from semi 1.

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 05:25 PM

Semi 2

Semi 1



FARC: NAATIONS - Air & Water



Ultraviolenceland: Lucy Daydream - You.





Flynnonda: Waterparks - Dream Boy [27th, 28 points]



Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:30 PM

Happy for New Lexico for Icelandic solidarity, and a song cramming all of the weird Icelandic letters into its title x (the song is alright)

Ooh pleasantly surprised UVland have made it!! One of their best entries for me but was expecting it to fall short, hope it can perform decently enough in the final.

Flynnonda I think is similar to Land of DW, would have struggled even in the other semi I think unforch.

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Sep 26 2019, 05:30 PM

I'd have given Waterparks top points!

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:31 PM

flynnonda racism back after a three month vacation?

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 05:33 PM

Semi 2



Espen: DEVILNOTCRY - NotEnoughOfYou



Suedeonia: Shakespears Sister & Richard Hawley - When She Finds You





Enty: Two Feet - Pink [27th, 34 points]



Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:34 PM

omg that UVLand song, are we sure that isn’t a Lust For Life reject?

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:35 PM

Yass Espen wub.gif

Shakespears Sister making it is quite surprising, especially in the opposite semi from the likes of Singerpurear and Rolloland! A very pleasant song though ~

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:35 PM

well a lot of the songs I thought would DNQ are in which means I’m probably out soon

Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 05:36 PM

Not Dobbo only getting 14 points, 5 of those from me! sad.gif This Dobago racism needs to end NOW! #enddobagoracism

Hurrah for Thelonia tho.

Posted by: JosephStyles Sep 26 2019, 05:36 PM

Semi 1



Tartford: Otto Knows - About You



Břtanikkä: Ayla - Angelfalls (Elemental Force)





Utopia: beabadoobee - She Plays Bass [26th, 29 points]



Posted by: Mattias Sep 26 2019, 05:39 PM

Utopia 💔 That would've most likely received big points from me... There was just something so endearing about it.

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:39 PM

Oh nooo at Utopia, I thought that one could have done quite well, it was reminding me a little of Hatchie! sad.gif another of my would-be votes out.

Břtanikkä an essential heart.gif very surprised that Tartford have made it with a song that sounds like hold music but I guess it must have its fans...!

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:40 PM

yay botanikka, a true banger heart.gif

Cor Lupus: Hanne Mjřen - Strangers





Cadelicia: AMA - Crystal [26th, 37 points]



Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 05:40 PM

YES for Břtanikkä! I was worried cos it looked like it was in the wrong semi but glad to see it's made it through anyhow.

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:41 PM

never mind

yay for qualifying in the non pop semi! thanks everyone! heart.gif

Posted by: King Rollo Sep 26 2019, 05:42 PM

Fantastic to see my song go through. I was a little worried about its chances. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:42 PM

Woo for Terra Avium, wasn't super confident they'd make it! Though I reserve the right to be salty if it does better than me in the final now after passing over it when I first found it x Cor Lupus is also p good.

Cadelicia's song was growing on me but it didn't really stand out thaaat much so not too surprising to see it out.

Posted by: LexC Sep 26 2019, 05:43 PM

Oh thank god for that!

But WTF @ East Rukhavian - y'all mofos need jesus

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:46 PM

</3 Harmonica, I really liked that one, had a great chorus. 3rd of my top 10 of semi 1 to fall gah.

Shame about Aelandor but that is slightly higher than I'd have predicted it.

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:50 PM

Summericia: Covenant - Dead Stars





Taahino: The Big Moon - Your Light [24th, 39 points]



Posted by: gooddelta Sep 26 2019, 05:55 PM

Utopia and Harmonica are big losses, both in my top three of the semi sad.gif Where did the pretty melodic indie pop fans go this month (the other semi?)

Posted by: PeteFromLeeds Sep 26 2019, 05:55 PM

Another one I liked falling out, the best Taahino song in a whole for me sad.gif

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 05:56 PM

Not another one of Taahino's best entries DNQing </3 first one of my votes to go out from semi 2.

2 more v good qualifiers there though especially Summericia ~

Greenfroze: EVERGLOW - Adios





Unovia: Illy - Then What [23rd, 39.6 points with deduction]



Posted by: Algernon Monqueef Sep 26 2019, 05:59 PM

Posted by: Call Me Cody Sep 26 2019, 05:59 PM

YES EVERGLOW *.*

Posted by: Chez Wombat Sep 26 2019, 06:00 PM

Yayayayay *.* Enchantress of the BJSC more like

All good results so far, though not happy at Dobago (I gave that a sizeable chunk of its overall points D:) and Taahino going out, lovely songs.

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 06:00 PM

A shame to lose Illy because of the deduction </3 was a little bit of a diet bop.

Yay for FLJ x

Also great to see Sergeistan qualify in their first contest!

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 06:04 PM

Pfffft. Not super shocked but very disappointed that Deandria are out, that was my 12. Crai. Good to see Sergeistan qualifying on their debut though (although I've since heard another song by Zivert ('Life') that I liked a lot more than this one oops!)

Arcodesia to qualify pls (also oh my at 'We Are W.I.T.C.H.' being this high *_*)

Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 06:04 PM

Posted by: sergejdordij98 Sep 26 2019, 06:08 PM

Thank you everyone so much for the qualifier, this was something that really cheered me up after my failed driving test.

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 06:08 PM

Thank the lord for Arcodesia!! Hope they should do pretty well in the final now after getting over the hurdle of the semi. Really liked Aeroche again this month too.

Aww at Aesthetica missing out because of the deduction as well, not a fave but it was decent for what it was and did slightly grow on second listen.

Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 06:08 PM

yes for Aeroche/Arcodesia!

Posted by: coi Sep 26 2019, 06:12 PM

We Are W.I.T.C.H. might actually make the final? ohmy.gif

Yayyy for Cowtermont not DNQing again (I'd have been shocked but then I was shocked their last two went out as well so). Skall back as well (Y)

I wasn't expecting Quintessa to make it but blah at them coming so close - I think this entry may have been entered a little bit too late, it's a summer song x

Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 06:13 PM

Jupiterdonia sad.gif another one of my faves, lost quite a few from semi 1. Just a bad semi for that, I'm sure it'd have done quite well if it had got better luck of the draw.

That's a shame Jupiterdonia is out. Great song.

Wow, YES at The HU making it in!

Thanks to everyone for making this a smooth process for me, I'll hand you over to the brilliant Jade for the final!! heart.gif

Posted by: danG Sep 26 2019, 06:21 PM

Wasn't expecting Jupiter's entry to be out, even I liked it!

Posted by: Bré Sep 26 2019, 06:21 PM

And the right two songs to end on! (thank god Beaverdonia are through because a) it's one of the best songs and b) I'd definitely have forever accused you of corruption if they were 21st as I was worried they'd be for a moment lmaooo).

Daehun actually coming that close to qualifying argh

I’m honestly surprised to have qualified - but happy to continue a reasonably decent streak!

Posted by: Jade Sep 26 2019, 06:25 PM

Apologies for not commenting along, I asked Joseph if I could know the results in advance so I could prep the final thread tonight! Will drop it at the round time of 8 biggrin.gif I am shook but so happy that Hushkanukia qualified, yassss! Jupiterdonia was a big surprise for me, that was getting winning predictions on plug drama.gif

losses;

semi 1
03 Utopia: beabadoobee - She Plays Bass

Utopia deserved better but that went very well *.*

semi 2
03 Deandria: Niyaz - Sabza Ba Naz (The Triumph Of Love)

My 3s were cursed

Thanks for this Joseph, you've done a brilliant job with it all!

Posted by: TheJüpreme Sep 26 2019, 06:26 PM

Suspect I knocked myself out. Oh well. Thx for the 2 12s.

This random setting up of the semis seems to punish a lot of songs disproportionately tbh. Maybe when I come to host it'll disappear.

12 DEANDRIA
10 QUALIFIED
8 QUALIFIED

7 QUALIFIED
6 QUINTESSA
5 QUALIFIED
4 QUALIFIED
3 TAAHINO
2 QUALIFIED
1 QUALIFIED
12th Aelandor
17th East Rukahavian
18th Cadelicia
26th Enty
27th Dobago
28th Tinnmark
29th Daehun

Deandria and Taahino were both ones I predicted through so rather disappointing losses, got through a couple of ones that I like but predicted out though so swings and roundabouts...

From my semi 1 ranking:

3rd Jupiterdonia
5th Utopia
6th St. Burbia
10th Harmonica
14th Land of DW
16th United States of Jack
17th Unovia
19th Flynnonda
22nd Aesthetica
27th Budtar

Losing 4 of my top 10 despite the generous 2/3 chance of qualifying is not great. x

Thanks for the punctual and speedy hosting Joseph ~ will post the Q streak update shortly.

Unovia not bothering to vote has cost them a place in the final, oops.

"Not bothering" = having a life and not the time to listen, ultimately the former has to come first and sometimes life happens, didn't anticipate it being that way this month or I wouldn't have entered sad.gif

Ah ok, I was just basing it on the comment where you said you didn’t care as much anymore. Fair enough if it’s just life getting in the way.

Wow Bré, I knew you liked my entry but no way was I expecting a 12 mellow.gif Thank you! Shocked at Jupiterdonia more than my own song...

That didn't help me this month though! (Admittedly we were missing Botanikka & Vulkyria but still wouldn't have made a different in qualifying) tongue.gif

And in fairness, there were a good 3/4 songs that I actually preferred to my own entry this month laugh.gif

AND AND AND on a VERY positive note this is finally the first time in 40 contests where ALL of my semi votes have qualified cheer.gif

And the absolutely essential Ayla qualified from Semi 1. So overall I am extremely pleased!


Very smooth results Joseph, top work.

* more consecutive entries (13 for Thelonia, 7 for Kluminican Republic, 6 for Kylienips and Terra Avium, 3 for Ojnoj) have qualified but these streaks were broken by breaks from the contest

The four nations with a streak of at least 10 already all continue and further expand their national records, Aeroche and Cor Lupus marching on once more to a 32nd final in a row each (now only 2 away from matching Hendinia for the 2nd longest streak ever by any nation), FARC going to 17 and Thelonia going to 12 / 13 ignoring the one contest gap. Dobago sadly fell a fair bit short of qualifying on what would have taken them to double digits as well. Oslol extend their record further to 9 and Lotunia to 8. The Actual Republic of Bellamia with their corruption auto-qualifier had already secured a 5th final appearance in a row which matches their record, this is the fourth time they've had a run of 5 after previously doing so in BJSCs 58-62, 82-86 and 91-95, can this be the first time they get to 6? Arcodesia make it to 3 in a row for the first time to surpass their old record. Wholune get their third qualifier, they're yet to qualify in consecutive contests. Finally Sergeistan qualify on their first attempt and so immediately set a new record 'streak' of 1 in a row.

Kluminican Republic's broken run of 7 is now only one off matching their record of 8 qualifiers in consecutive contests, although that was also part of a longer broken run of 10 entries in a row qualifying so that's a pretty meaningless comparison. Terra Avium have 6 consecutive entries appearing in a final for the first time but in a broken run, also matching their run of 6 consecutive 'moral' qualifications in BJSCs 94-99 which includes Varien who incorrectly DNQed.

Posted by: RabbitFurCoat Sep 26 2019, 08:25 PM

Well at least She Plays Bass got some fans, a shame it didn't appeal to more. I thought it would do quite well. Can't believe I didn't qualify but We Are Witch did! That's even worse than Klumzee's song from the last contest.

Harmonica was the only song I liked that didn't qualify, and it didn't quite make the points for me, so all 10 through. Final voting will be tough

I'm pretty happy with who did qualify, from my top 10 only 'hair tie' missed out (but HOW???). Thanks Joseph for hosting!

Posted by: Izzy Sep 26 2019, 11:48 PM

Phew! I'd convinced myself I'd be out after initially being confident so very nice to see myself through, thanks guys happy.gif

I did lose my 12, which was: 12 Aelandor: Masego - Navajo, and that is unfortunate because it was the clear best song in the semi as soon as I heard it (those Native American sounds, such a beaut), and then Taahino was my 11th so unfortunate to see that one out, but considering the rest of my votes qualified, pretty good results.

Oh yes and Delain not making it was something I'd never considered, that's a real shame. One of the best tracks I've heard from them. Utopia's entry was great too, I'd heard it before and wondered briefly about it myself.

Taahino was the only one of my top ten not to qualify. In most months it would have got more than three points from me, but this was a strong SF. There were about half-a-dozen songs that would have got points from me most months but got zero this time.
