Contest 128: Circe - Ten Girls, 37th



BJSC 128 was the 78th contest and 47th final Utopia took part in, represented by London based solo artist Circe with her synth heavy 'Ten Girls'. Its 37th placed finish represented a joint lowest ever final finishing position in a result that was in some ways pleasing and in some ways not. Obviously never pleasing to equal a joint lowest record, but despite its lowly finish its appeal was quite wide, with its 18 voters being more than three of our other four finalists this year, aided by being Queen of the 1 pointer with four lots of 1 given.

Utopia Voting History - Points Given and Received

I've been back and done a full voting history following Utopia's return including all countries that competed in the contest, the full version of which should be accessible in spreadsheet form here

Votes Given
88 countries have qualified for a final I've voted in, of which 68 have received points at least once. The top 15 of which are:

Rank | Points | Average Points | Country
01 140 10.77 Fljotavik
02 139 8.69 Aeroche
03 94 7.23 Terra Avium
04 90 6.00 Persephonia
05 84 6.46 Thelonia
06 82 6.31 FSR Rontvia
07 68 13.60 Arcodesia
08 64 4.27 Jadakissnia
09 63 9.00 Cowtermont
10 59 6.56 Suedonia
11 58 7.25 Skall
12 53 5.89 Kylienips
13 52 5.20 Rolloland
14 49 4.45 Seyetana
15 48 3.43 Alytr Muunilinst

12 points awarded to Zhala sees Fljotavik take the lead from Aeroche by a solitary point, as their 100% points record continues, though interestingly no 18. Terra Avium and Persephonia strengthen their places in the top 5 as the other countries in the top 10 either didn't participate or didn't qualify. A contest return for Arcodesia would definitely be most welcomed!

Votes Received
A total of 90 countries have voted in the 12 finals Utopia have been in, of which 76 have awarded points at least once. The top 15 of which are:

Rank | Points | Average Points | Country
01 106 9.64 Fljotavik
02 94 7.83 Persephonia
03 83 6.92 Jadakissnia
04 83 7.55 Terra Avium
05 76 6.91 Skall
06 67 5.58 Seyetana
07 62 5.17 Niceland
08 61 5.08 Rolloland
09 60 5.45 Taahino
10 54 4.50 Daneviia
11 54 4.50 Jupiterdonia
12 51 4.64 Suedonia
13 50 6.25 Republic of Adonia
14 48 4.00 FARC
15 46 3.83 Aeroche

It's a double #1 for Fljotavik as they give Utopia almost as many points as they receive, the top 15s have a significant amount of similarities but some nice differences too. Something I found interesting were that Persephonia and Jadakissnia in 2nd/3rd had both given points to 8/11 entries which were the same 8, a sequence now ended by Jade awarding 1 point to Circe.

Big notable differences are Kylienips, Summericia, East Rukahavian and Singerpurear who's entires often go down well with Utopia but not the other way round, and vice versa for Jupiterdonia, Quintessa and Taahino (if only Your Light had qualified!)

The most opportunities without a single point being exchanged is with Scherzland, up to 15 following the previous contest (0/8 given, 0/7 received), though there are plenty of other countries with who points are rarely exhanged, including:

New Lexico: 1/24
The Actual Republic of Bellamia: 1/19
Hushkanukia: 2/23
Ultraviolenceland: 2/21
St. Burbia: 3/26
Unovia: 3/22

I do love a good spreadsheet *.* (Does remind me that my own voting history spreadsheet is one of many BJSC stats things that I'm many months behind on now, will catch up again one of these days)

No surprise of course that me and Jade have very similar voting patterns but that is interesting that we'd voted for/snubbed the exact same Utopia entries since your comeback up until now - I think Liela Moss, beabadoobee, Blood Red Shoes and Coach Party would all have made my votes too had they qualified, don't immediately recall if any of those are ones Jade would not have also voted for. x
