how entries do in the semi-finals are a bit overlooked here, so which entries have done well in the semi-finals for you?

The following finished top 5 in the semi for me;

Entry No. // Final Position // Final Points // Semi Final Position // Semi Final Points // Performer(s) ~ Song

01 // 25 // 51 // 05 // 69 // Danny Dove & Ben Preston feat. Susie Ledge ~ Falling
18 // 15 // 80 // 05 // 93 // Cahill feat. Kimberley Locke ~ Feel the Love
30 // 25 // 79 // 05 // 96 // Jenny Mayhem & The Fuzz Orchestrator ~ Bad Girls (SLO LOV Remix)
32 // 11 // 108 // 05 // 84 // Shadow Child & Doorly ~ Climbin' (Piano Weapon)
34 // 06 // 158 // 03 // 111 // Pep & Rash ~ Rumors

yes I actually have 5 top 5 semi-final finishes to my name, plus an additional 5 in the semi-final top 10. Naturally my only top 10 finisher is the one that finished highest for me, #3 in the semi.

Wonder - Adventure Club came second with 134 points and 20/29 voters in the semi which is definitely our best.

However, our best result in the final (Thinking About It - Just Kiddin) came fourth with 92 points and 15/30 votes in the semi.

Marlon Roudette and that came 13th and that's it sad.gif

I've won the semi-final twice, with Jaymes Young (actually beat Belanger in the semi!) and Kids Of The Apocalypse. My actual final winner Jay Dabhi came 2nd in the semi, MILES behind Mr.Kitty. And I had one other top 2 finish in the semi, with Paris XY's 'The Return' which came 24th in the final and I'm still bitter.

Marlon Roudette was fabulous, I was VERY surprised it wasn't amongst the top batch cos I loved it right away and it's yet to drop out of my charts since I first heard it (currently 5). Still, last laugh and all that now it's a big hit yahoo.gif

I've had something like 6 SF winners. Bit insane really considering I've only had 1 winner and rather ironically that was during the 1BF era.

Flight Facilties' 'I Didn't Believe' came top 5 in the semi with almost 100 points yet only finished 23rd and now MOWE which I see now has gone from top 5>22nd in the final, I'd mainly be happy with those placings as they're better than bottom 5 but seeing that really sucks sad.gif Un Nouveau Soleil has alas been the only one of my entries that's done really well in the semi and then replicated that in the final.

I came second in 68 with "Surf Solar" but that was thanks to ending up in a very Fuck Buttons friendly semi. biggrin.gif

NERVO and Ask Embla won their semis I believe? (Bray/Ryan should know this at the very least).

Three of my songs have come Top 5 in the semis stage:

1st Sharon Doorson - Killer
2nd Natalie La Rose - Somebody
4th 3LAU - How You Love Me

Otherwise I've scraped into the final twice now, coming 15th & 16th in the semis with Joel Compass & Lion Babe respectively.
DNQ'd with these positions: 16th/18th/18th/20th

Lion Babe has become an anomaly for me!

I've had SEVEN semi victories to date, only ONE of which was an overall winner (|||||). Blonde came THIRD, madly. The rest were all POP STOMPERS so didn't have wide enough appeal I guess.

And BOTH times you've denied me from qualifying because I was the next closest to qualify. Poor Antti (has there even been a foreign language male rock ballad in the final before?) and Flutterwonder, would have been amazing final entries.

Jayrusalem is hilariously/scarily becoming my BJSC nemesis, still never qualified in the same contest as them and then THIS as well. I don't even know what to say to you tbh. angel.gif

Oh yeah, I've only had the odd semi smashes but I do have 2 wins, which for someone who's never won is rather good I guess.

Relevant top 5 ones here:
BJSC 45 3rd Ruby Frost - Water To Ice
BJSC 48 1st Dream Beats (feat. The Face) - Love Stuck
BJSC 54 3rd Amaranthe - Amaranthine
BJSC 58 1st Cardiknox - Hold Me Down (lol)
BJSC 65 3rd Archis - Blood
BJSC 66 4th charisma.com - Iinadukeblue
BJSC 71 2nd Rachel Taylor - Porcelain

The Charlies only won the semi on a tiebreak laugh.gif But the two songs ahead in the final were from the opposite semi. I remember being so shocked f(x) was second in the semi, shame about the major collapse in the final :drama; Same with Spark coming 3rd, both must have been quite pop semis or something idk :/ Conversely, KYA and HyunA did much better than projected.
