HEAT 10

Welcome to heat ten of Super Eurovision II! Pavel has handed over the hosting of this heat to me due to time constraints so you will have to make do with a lack of exciting commentary to start this thread of with, but I shall give a quick overview.

As luck would have it, the first country in this heat is Estonia who have one of the strongest back catalogues of entries, up there with the likes of Sweden, Cyprus and Albania (although the latter two may be just me). Following a couple of poor results with their first entries into the contest, Estonia became a Eurovision superpower in the late 1990s and early 2000s with 6 top ten finishes and a victory in 2001 with 'Everybody'. However the introduction of the semi-finals saw Estonia's success decline dramatically despite several fabulous songs ('Leto Svet' NOT being one of them) with their first qualification under the semi-final format not arriving until 2009. 'Rändajad' was the first winner of the new Eesti Laul national selection process, now one of the unmissable national finals, and gave Estonia their best result since Sahlene's 3rd place in the 2002 Estonian-hosted contest. Estonia continue to provide us with very high quality entries and now qualify more often that not, with 'Kuula' and 'Goodbye To Yesterday' providing two further top 10 finishes since 2009.

Next up in this heat we have Iceland, another country with a very strong Eurovision history in recent years. However, Iceland's Eurovision success didn't properly start until the removal of the language restrictions when Selma immediately took advantage to finish second in 1999. Consistency remained an issue for Iceland until 2008 when the country managed seven consecutive qualifications including another second place with Yohanna, a run which came to an end last week with the non-qualification of Maria Olafs. Yet many people believe that Iceland definitely have the potential to secure a Eurovision victory in the near future, and their tendency to send high quality entries back this up.

Thirdly, we have Poland who are one of the least successful Eurovision countries with their only top 5 finish coming in their debut. Since their debut they have only managed one further top 10 finish with Ich Troje in 2003 and only managed to qualify once between 2005 and 2011, and even then Isis Gee only managed 24th in the final. After a two contest break, Poland returned in 2014 with their best result since 2003 thanks to Donatan & Cleo.

Finally, we have Monaco who returned to Eurovision in 2004, their first participation since the 1970s. Unlike other microstates, Monaco never got anywhere close to qualification under the semi-final format and after three very unsuccessful years Monaco withdrew from the contest for the second time. Their brief return did give Eurovision their first song sung in Tahitian when Séverine Ferrer sung 'La Coco-Dance' in 2006.

______

Estonia, Iceland, Poland - 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 2014 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 Ryan. You have until 23:59 Sunday May 31st, 2015.

There will be some SERIOUS SHIT going down if Ale jestem, Minn hinsti dans and Diamond of Night don't get a fair hearing here.

In fact this is VERY MUCH a list of countries WAY better in the late 90s/early 00s than they are now

Estonia used to be a lot less reliable for quality than they are now. Urban Symphony/Eesti Laul really did wonders. I suppose the 90s entries from what I remember were quite good but between their win and Randajad it's very very up and down. I do have a soft spot for Let's Get Loud though.

Iceland are very strong throughout, will be tough to choose where my points go I'm sure. Can't really remember what I've heard of the Polish entries before their return in 2014 that well but I think I like one of the Ich Troje entries.

Estonia 1999-2002 is so incredible for me, Goodbye To Yesterday though is better than all but one of those, shame we can't vote for it yet.

Iceland are so consistent, it was quite hard to rank the top 6 or 7 there as they have nearly all finished in the 31-40 region in my end of year charts.

I care not for Poland, save for the iconic Ich Troje x2 <3

I will get on this at some point, Estonia is so bloody difficult to order, Keelatud Maa, Raandjad, Kuula, Runaway and Once In A Lifetime are all stone cold classics in addition to the many other good stuff in there too.

Monaco Q01



Séverine Ferrer
'La Coco-Dance'




Séverine lead all the way through, the real battle was for second but Maryon held on for the entire time.
