WELCOME TO THE GRAND OPENING CEREMONY

Over the last few days, the great BJSC tradition (that I definitely did not just make up and plagiarise) of the BJSC torch relay has been taking place across Persephonia.

It was intended to start in Bokitown, Bokia, the hometown of BJSC where the very first edition was hosted. Unfortunately mainland Bokia recently ceased to exist and the historical town is now under the jurisdiction of Farahtyn who did not allow us to start there. Instead, it began from New Persephonia City, the capital of Sargia State in the east of Persephonia.

The path of the torch relay will be recapped in the next post at 7:40pm and the identity of the final torchbearer arriving at Carellis will be announced at 7:50pm. Then at 8pm the main event of the opening ceremony begins - the artist parade. The entries to BJSC LXVIII will be revealed in alphabetical order (though with the home entry and autoqualifier coming in last) as the artists march in over the following hour. The semi-final voting thread will then be opened shortly afterwards, as Persephonian President Salim Zosimus declares the contest officially open.

(You'll have to imagine the parts of an Olympic opening ceremony that I can't think of a way to emulate).

I assume we're all good to go now with the song list?

PATH OF THE TORCH



The torch moved from New Persephonia City to Kobbar, the second city of Sargia, then up the River Alexis to Ji'ma', the capital and only inhabited area of the desert state of Murraii. The torch then continued up the River Alexis and jetted off from the Séyetanian border on a slight detour to visit Persephonian East Allecian, the disputed overseas territory / satellite state.



There it visited three of the four major cities of the territory - from Graphia in the north to the capital of New Carellis in the east and then to Mexis south of there. Unfortunately the Ghlágh area is currently too violent with continuing clashes between Persephonian separatists and the Allecci army so it was not visited on the route.

After jetting back to the mainland the torch passed by Mount Djuritschek, the tallest mountain in the country, then proceeded to the nearby city of Duglin, down the River Haze to Altpersefonstatt (the former capital of the country) and then across the Twikandean Sea to the Far Island Autonomous Region who kindly permitted our torchbearers to enter their territory.

The torch was moved across the beautiful beaches on the west of Far Island and then entered the jungle to stop by Farspøk, the capital and main population centre of the island. Only two of the torchbearers were attacked there by local separatists. Great success. The Twikandean Sea was then swiftly crossed again and the torch proceeded through Sparkton-upon-Haze to the Designated Native Egabbaci Sargian Territory (DNEST) where the cradle of civilisation of Persephonia, Tolae-Kili, was visited.

The torch then passed back into Carellisia state to visit Victoireville, a village whose name has now finally been justified. Next it proceeded into the familiar BJSC territory of Jungyu in Lauhun state, from which we hosted the semi-finals of BJSC LXII. Finally it set off to the major cities in the south of Carellisia - from al-Robāt, east to Ižinaú and Port-Iosiff.

And that brings us up to now - the very final leg of the torch relay is about to close as our final torchbearer is set to arrive here at the Carellis Arena in the next ten minutes to light the BJSC Cauldron. The torchbearers have been a mixture of celebrities, 'celebrities' and just plain normal people, and ostriches for some reason. We've really pulled out the stops for this grand finale though and it's one of the biggest celebrities in the country - but who? It shall all be revealed...

Hello this is Ferreck Dawn reporting live for Danaelanda here in the Carellis Arena. I may have missed out on a top 40 UK hit due to streaming but I don't care all that much as watching this is far more exciting. I'll definitely be waving the Danaelandan flag tonight, this entry in particular is quite special to me, being a deep house record. Stay tuned on DTV for more

TIME TO LIGHT THE CAULDRON

The time has come and the BJSC torch has arrived in Carellis. Time to reveal who will be lighting the cauldron, signalling the start of the artist parade...

rabbit interlude



















































































Why, it's none other than THAT ONE WOMAN FROM THE ORPHIC OXTRA VIDEO! Audience members who have fainted from the shock of being in her presence will be seen to by the Persephonian Emergency Services shortly.

Stay tuned now though as we're done with the silly stuff and the main event is a mere 600 seconds or so away.

This is so so beautiful Bré. Can't wait to see which entry belongs to which person (that's the thing I look forward to most these days having seen the entry list already).

Just before we start here's some quick stats (yes I've gotta keep all the Bré stereotypes here, this is an opening ceremony)

20 different nationalities are represented.

Artist nationality breakdown:
16 UK (incl. 1 UK/Australia, 1 UK/Sweden/USA)
12 USA
4 Norway
4 Sweden
3 Canada (incl. 1 Canada/Australia, 1 Canada/Romania/USA)
3 France
2 Australia
2 Denmark
2 South Korea
1 Albania
1 Austria (incl. 1 Austria/UK)
1 Barbados (incl. 1 Barbados/Canada)
1 Bulgaria (incl. 1 Bulgaria/USA)
1 Croatia
1 Finland
1 Germany
1 Netherlands
1 Romania
1 Russia (incl. 1 Russia/USA)
1 South Africa

14 out of 59 entries are at least partially by recycled artists. Of those two were simply self recycled.

The oldest recycle was first entered in BJSC V, the most recent recycle was here just last month.

Only one artist has been entered for more than the third time. 152cheap.
