So I decided the countries approach is definitely worth the try so we are doing that for a change.

In the last 20 years 48 countries participated in ESC. I put all of them into TWELVE heats. So you will have to listen to 4 countries' entries per heat / week. Given you most likely know the majority of entries already it's not really a big deal at all. And if you participate in every heat you will come out of this with a full knowledge of ALL Eurovision entries from 1995 until 2014. *.* Shockingly, that's something the majority of Eurofans can NOT say about themselves!

So let us start this.

14 weeks
48 countries (34 with 11-20 participations; 14 with 2-10 participations)
12 heats
2 songs advance to the Semifinals from each country with 11+ participations
1 song advances to the Semifinals from each country with 2-10 participations
82 semifinalists
2 Semifinals
40 Finalists
1 Winner

;;;

UK, Portugal and Denmark - 2 qualifiers.

You may vote in ANY or ALL of these four sub-heats. You do that by forming your 10 favourite songs from each country. You must use the traditional Eurovision voting system (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 point). If a country had less than 10 participations between 1995 and 2004 then you must rank ALL of their entries but still use the same voting system described earlier. For example, if a country has only 7 entries then your votes will be 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5 and 4 points.

Vote via PM to Conderella. You have until 23:59 March 22nd, 2015.

I think this is a good way of doing it. As much as I STAN FOR SVERIGE it's going to be nice not having the majority of entries in the semis/final from 4 or 5 countries.

I must not forget to vote. Hopefully this post will remind me of it.

I am enjoying the zippys though, I only have random and mostly poor quality mp3s pre-2011. (so yes at an opportunity to bolster the collection)

I downloaded that 1956-2009 pack off torrents once and have been updating it ever since. The old entries are technically not HQ but they are really the best one can get~

Voted.

UK - obviously stronger in the 90s, but it's getting the point where Love City Groove is still well in the top 10 of our last 20. Which is fine, I like the quirkiness of it but it does prove the point. Weirdly 'That Sounds Good To Me' didn't sound so abysmal listening to it for the first time properly in like 5 years, but I am still ranking it below Cry Baby. I'd definitely be giving Electro Velvet points were we doing 2015 as well.

Denmark - I think of them as the weakest Nordic nation and there are a few bad entries in here, like Talking To You, but it's mostly rather nice stuff, Shame On You particularly sounds way ahead of its time, and of course the winners are both great.

Georgia - Been very hit-and-miss so far, definitely the weak link in the Caucasus, but they're also the most inspired, most of the time, just a shame their 'experiments' don't often work out.

Portugal - Oh Portugal, I'm really rooting for them to send something truly great... sometime. At least we get the nations whose entries are a bit of a slog out of the way first.

(let's get Pavel more votes for this~)

Listening to Portugal's entries put me in a coma, but I should be able to vote later today.

The Portuguese entries are actually not that bad overall. Plus, pretty much everything from 2008 onwards (apart from a MEH-fest from 2011) has been AMAZING.

Why are Denmark so great at pop, and so shit at ESC?

Also letting us vote for Kun Med Dig but not We Don't Wanna Put In, hmmmm.

Despite Eurovision's stance on those entries I think it's fair to count them in. Georgia 2009 however never took part in anything Eurovision-related since it was disqualified before the thing started.

Voted. Georgia really have been awful with the exception of my 12 points heart.gif Thank goodness 'Warrior' is another to add to their collection!

And the late 90's were ALL ABOUT the UK wub.gif

Reminders sent to everyone I thought would be interested in this.

The next round is coming today though because I won't have time to format and upload and all that shit tomorrow! Results still happening tomorrow afternoon or evening though.

Next heat will consist of Spain, Turkey, Finland and San Marino. #justice4sertab #Dimetowintbh

Week 3 is Sweden so get your mops ready for getting rid of ALL THE BLOOD AND TEARS THERE WILL BE LEFT AFTER THIS *.*

I got bullied into voting for this, but some of these are downright embarassing. Especially UK '99

Can't wait for The Netherlands so I can serve some of our entries some justice


EDIT: Byeee 2006 is an ultimate low
