After the Olympic Opening Ceremony - which is due to finish at 3:30 but if you're free go watch that, that's what I'll be doing x

The real start time will be at 5:00pm BST as with the semi-final results.

Fingers crossed for Rampampam!

I'm more interested in who's gonna win the battle of the retro top 40 hits cheer.gif (my money's on Aeroche x), not got any expectations and will most likely tank here, but I'm very pleased to be in the final.

Feel there's a good chance for one of my favourites winning here, but I'm not holding my breath. Was a really good final so hope to see some great results to reflect that.

Final Results

Hello everyone, welcome to the final results, hosted at the Budokan Stadium in Ziadiz, Séyetana. Outside, on the race track, the competitors wait, ready to start running ahead as points are given to their entries. It’ll be a long race, so settle in.

For tonight, you’re going to be treated to a simple Japanese lesson, simple of course is all I should be doing at my level. While for readability purposes, the scoreboard and your banner will be entirely in English, I have translated everyone’s country names into Japanese, and, just like the Parade of Nations that has just finished in the real Tokyo, we will be revealing the votes in Japanese “alphabetical” order, and this is how your country name will be written at the top of each voting post. A transliteration of the country name will be provided to help you read this alternate version, though for the most part this is just the country name pronounced phonetically.

Japanese pronunciation: there are no sounds that change depending on what letters follow them in Japanese, so if you know vowel pronunciation, you’re going to be at least close – nothing like Chinese in that regard where half of the consonants have specific different pronunciations to get used to. A, U and O are mostly as you’d expect, though U is only a ‘u’ like ‘fun’ and not a u like ‘uni’, I sounds like ‘ee’ in ‘bee’, and E sounds like ‘e’ in ‘bet’ – make sure to pronounce the ‘e’ at the end of words, not like in English – sake (the Japanese rice wine drink heart.gif ) is said ‘sa-keh’. As for vowel combinations, the main relevant one is ‘ai’ sounding like our ‘I’ in Iceland.

Order: Vowels come first, in this specific order: AIUEO. Then is all the consonant pairs, each consonant pairs with each of those vowels, so after that is KA/KI/KU/KE/KO, as K is the first consonant, and so on. Some consonants, like K, in fact, have a ‘soft-voiced’ counterpart, so for K, that is G, and G occupies the same alphabetical order as K does.

The order is, as those of you who watched the opening ceremony may remember:

Vowels
K/G
S/Z
T/D
N
H/B/P
M
Y
R
W
N (lone consonant)

All other letters are somewhere in there as irregular sounds, for instance, J is hiding in the Zs. Now, you may not start with the letter you’re expecting, as the transliteration will be based on pronunciation/how the Japanese would pronounce it based on their existing transliterations of similar names, and to that end I’ve tried to find records of how you guys pronounce your country names, for, you know, accuracy.

Writing systems: Japanese has three writing systems, the hiragana, the katakana (these two collectively are kana), and the kanji which meld together in a beautiful and logical way. Hiragana is the main ‘alphabet’, here is its ‘na - な' and ‘no - の’, which I’ve chosen because they should be the only hiragana you’ll see tonight, performing as an adjectival-linking particle and possession particle respectively. It’s used for words of Japanese origin, which BJSC country names are decidedly not.

The kanji are pictograms also used for words of Japanese origin, there is no alphabet to these, and they are used to make Japanese more readable, as the language has many homophones and doesn’t use spaces, reading a sentence full of kana is a nightmare. The main kanji word you’ll see tonight is 共和国, read as ‘Kyouwakoku’, which means ‘Republic’.

So the main one we're using tonight is katakana. Every hiragana has a katakana counterpart. Katakana are used for loanwords and foreign words in Japanese script, and the closest thing I can think of is to imagine if every word in English that still doesn’t feel English was always written in italics. Most of your country names will be written entirely in katakana. One point to note is that in katakana elongated vowels are written with a long dash (ー) after the first vowel and are transliterated as a double of whatever vowel that is.

For the contest, feel free to remind yourselves of the tracks everyone entered with videos embedded in their voting post, and there will be a scoreboard every vote up until the last few votes, where we’ll do a scoreboard freeze. I encourage you to take part and post about the latest changes of course, it’s going to be a fun one.

Also, btw, the '63' is just because we will be stopping off at the non-voting nations as they go past, there are 59 valid votes in this final x

First up in true alphabetical order is Aesthetica, who are the first non-qualifying vote, and their votes do something very important, they give the hosts an unexpected lead! Even if I were someone who doesn’t know the results I’d be telling you not to expect this to last but for now I’m going to enjoy being the first one to not lead by default, as Trifoski and N DNTN bunch up behind me looking a lot more threatening.

helping to get us off page 1 xox

Neat coincidence that you're using an alphabetical order translated into Japanese on the same day as the Olympic opening ceremony doing the same thing.

Pretty intriguing concept and I think my country name is quite Japanese-friendly in translation I suppose?
