The Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest 2018 - RESULTS TIME

    Welcome to the inaugural edition of the PJ Forum Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest. Too long have we had to watch as our favourite songs fall at national selections without getting their moments to flop shine.

    NO MORE!

    In this alternate dimension version of the world's most popular annual song contest, we'll be pitting the songs that didn't make it to Lisbon against each other. There's just one rule: countries taking part will have had some sort of competition with multiple songs and acts that the public have had some say in the result of. No internal selections here.

    The hosts for the 2018 Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest are:

    The countries eligible for the 2018 Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest are:
    Albania
    Armenia
    Belarus
    Czech Republic
    Denmark
    Estonia
    France
    Germany
    Greece
    Hungary
    Iceland
    Italy
    Latvia
    Lithuania
    Malta
    Moldova
    Montenegro
    Norway
    Poland
    Portugal
    Romania
    San Marino
    Serbia
    Slovenia
    Spain
    Sweden
    Switzerland
    Ukraine
    United Kingdom

    *Israel are not eligible, due to the fact the candidate was chosen by the public but not the song.
    *Finland are also not eligible, despite there being three songs to choose from it was Saara Aalto whether we liked it or not. If anybody particular campaigns for Domino or Queens to be included, then I could be persuaded I guess.

    PHASE 1:
    The first phase of the contest is the selection process. I need a gaggle of gays to help serve as the international jury to pick out the songs we'll be scoring for each country in the final of the contest. A lot of us have been punishing ourselves with national selections every weekend anyway so this shouldn't be too hard.

    If you'd like to serve on the international jury please send me a PM or post in the thread.

    Please note: I won't expect you to vote in EVERY country's national selection, so if for instance you've only listened to the songs for France and United Kingdom, then you're only obliged to vote for those. Once the final song selections have happened for the real contest, I'll open a Google poll for the jury to vote.

    Once the votes from the jury are tallied, the participating acts for each country will be revealed.

    PHASE 2:
    The second phase is the voting process. In time-honoured Eurovision tradition each person will submit a ballot that looks something like:

    12 Points: Your favourite song in the contest
    10 Points: Your second favourite
    8 Points: and so on...
    7 Points:
    6 Points:
    5 Points:
    4 Points:
    3 Points:
    2 Points:
    1 Point: I don't know why I'm explaining how scoring works to Eurohunties?

    This phase will be open to anybody who wants to take part! As there are that much fewer entries than the real contest, I don't see the need for semi-finals or any of that jazz.

  3. Yaas, let's do this.

    I don't know why you're doing it either. You feeling okay?
     
  4. I’d be down to be part of the Inter Jury if y’all don’t mind my oft-questionable tastes.

  7. We'll just put the UK flag next to you and it'll be fine. No-one will question it.

  9. I would sign up for the jury and try to channel Ilinca, but I fear I'll be too busy with the Melfest rate.

  10. Here to serve as your Italy 2012 i.e. the only country NOT to give Lorqueen points
     
  11. The voting form for the jury looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    Where you go down the list and just select an entry for as many or as few of the countries as you've watched/listened to. Nice and simple and hopefully not too time consuming (unlike typing in all the entrants was)!

    Also don't let me forget to submit in the Melodifestivalen rate!
