Song Festival (Discussion)

Post by NeonNocturnal on Wed Sep 04, 2013 5:22 am



I thought I'd set up this forum as I know a lot of you guys take part in this contest and would love other people to join.
For those of you who don't know, Song Festival is an online song contest where you get to play the role of a countries delegation. You select a song and compete in a 4-week process. This is a perfect contest for Eurovision enthusiasts who are open to music from around the world and who like to compete.

This is a great place to discuss the entries, contest and participants taking part.

We are currently not taking new participants.

This edition is the first ever time I've had no clue how ANY of the entries are going to do. I just have no clue. :/

Clearly, Norway is going to win again. Did someone say self-promotion?
Seriously though, I do have my favourites but I have no idea what's gonna happen.

Whooo songfest! I like songfest, songfest is cool and good and it kind of hurts my heart when people complain.

oh you're Norway? I was actually talking with Leon the other day and I was like "Norway's definitely going for that back to back I like it" big fan of what you picked.

Italy's been on a biiiit of a dry spell despite a valiant effort last contest (which I definitely did not select last minute no way), but I can assure you, next contest gli Azzurri are going in with guns blazing. since we're shamelessly discussing our personal delegations and all

Yeah, but your dry spell came after two wins so shush- you can't win them all, it's nice to let someone else win for a change. Unless its Norway, I fully approve of Norway always winning

Do you guys think the contest is hard to win? Like, do you sometimes really invest on choosing a song that you hope will win?

I don't know, like I don't choose a song I think will win, I choose my favourite song out of what's there, and just hope it qualifies for a start, and then hope that it does well.

Like with Feathers, I never really thought to myself 'Oh I'll win with this', I just really liked it - winning came as a huge shock - I grinned like a maniac for about two hours Very Happy

When I picked my first win (cause when Scintille won I was taking over for the previous Italian delegation) I was the same way, didn't think I was gonna win I just thought that's a pretty solid song and yeah I grinned like an idiot about it too.
The most important thing when I pick mine is that I have to genuinely think it's good, I'm less concerned about winning these days and more concerned with remaining an automatic qualifier.

Ah, awesome.
I prefer it when winning isn't straight forward, but people still try to send their best entries and compete.

Next edition will be a 2-week ABU special.

Currently 16 points between 2nd place and the winner.

Also... I feel awful, the country in last place currently holds just 11 points... the country in the next position has 66. May be expecting a withdrawal. :S

Still waiting for some voters, 8 to be precise. Things could still change with that number!
It will most likely be Friday when the results are out.

Unfortunately the ABU Special Edition will be delayed. Some of the songs are not available yet, it might be best to wait until October. So get your thinking caps on for SF14! Very Happy

Results are out and we also need a huge delegation drive to get more people.

I must say, I'm thankful for the great welcome Iran has gotten! This is going to be fun!

And already, there's some really good music and tough competition cyclops (especially from Israel, my goodness what a voice!)

Good luck everyone!
