WHAT?
The results of the 134th Buzzjack Song Contest semi finals. Sixty-nine nations sent in seventy-one sets of votes for their personal top ten songs in their delegated semi final. Twenty nations will qualify from each semi final while fourteen will fall to the wayside and miss out on the grand final. The qualifiers will be revealed in random order but after six qualifiers have been revealed the non-qualifiers will be revealed starting with the last place. Semi final one will start, then followed by semi final two afterwards.

WHEN & WHERE?
The results will start in this thread at 8 PM GMT+1 (UK Time) but we're pretending this contest is being held in Trinityfjord, the capital of majestic north Vinorel nation Mosquetania.

WHAT TO EXPECT?
We have five non-qualifiers with votes from 10 or more countries and five qualifiers with votes from less than 10 countries. The average reach of the songs was getting votes from 10.6 countries in semi one and 10.3 countries in semi two. We have two three-way ties in the 18th to 25th region. Whether these ties apply to a qualifying/non-qualifying position remains to be seen. The final qualifying countries in both semis (20th place) both received around 50 points. Unfortunately New Lexico and POPHub voted after the deadline passed so they will receive a 15% deduction from their points total while Bhangra failed to vote entirely and will in turn receive a 33% deduction.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE?
Yes, actually there is! Similar as to the entry reveal thread tonight I have a gift for each of the nations participating. Each nation will receive a fan-made flag inspired by their nation, official flag and whatever else I could dig up about your nation. I made 70 flags for fun, one for each nation participating. Initially I kickstarted this because I was looking for bigger versions of the flags of the nations involved in a specific size ratio but seeing how that would be a tough task and almost impossible for me to receive them all in the same size I decided to instead create these flags as they would all automatically be the desired size and I used the opportunity to advance my expertise in Photoshop.

I want to be absolutely clear that with these flags I am in no way saying my flags are better than the originals or that I don't like the original flags of each nation. There are so many different flags in this contest that are stunning, hilarious and inspired so it was a great excuse to learn more about the various nations participating. I tried to keep them at least somewhat inspired by the original but this varies from flag to flag, and sometimes I also allowed myself to make assumptions about the nation at hand - especially if there was limited information on the original flag or in the national thread. It was a fun creative project for me to see what I could make with limited information to base them on and only done for fun so I do hope you enjoy these gifts and that no one gets offended by what I created. I am after all only human. The flags are gifts so you are entitled to do whatever you want with them after I gift them to you.

I'm sure you can do an infinitely better job at a Dobagan flag than my 3 minutes on Paint.

Cut-off circa 50 points to qualify? I'd like to think my entry has a decent chance especially with the semi draw but a lot of ppl have said it was a bloodbath so we'll see.

Fan-made flags sound really exciting!

Keeping expectations checked, I'll hope but appreciate whatever I've got, and also hope that the semi results somewhat reflect the general high level of quality in the semi.

people who get paid to do these things don't put this much effort

Jafet just gets up each night to collect all the wigs (bloody too as they come off with the entire scalp sometimes) we keep leaving on the floor from the previous day

who even KNOWS what we are going to see for the final

I pity the fool who decides to win this contest

Looking forward to this!

Really hoping India Jordan can qualify. I don't know whether it will have appealed to the SF2 voters or not as it didn't seem like the usual dance fans were present - so I'm a bit nervous

India Jordan is one of the few tracks in semi 2 that I will be rioting over if they don't qualify whistle.gif (And besides, the Orbital song that it rips off was a top 10 hit so I think you should be fine...!)

Hoping to not be bottom 5 in the semi. (Also intrigued to see the Mosquetanian remix of the Persephonian decastar flag... and reserving the right to claim whatever Jafet comes up with for Wholune as their official flag since Whoddy has repeatedly failed to get around to making a flag himself kink.gif)

Very excited to see the GRAFIX for this. Also nervously excited for Erika, the sort of nations that would vote for her seemed fairly evenly split across the semis so.

Imagine if after all the hype these custom flags turn out to all just be 5 second MS Paint jobs
