Welcome to the fourth edition of the Popjustice Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest!
This contest is designed to shine the spotlight on songs that did not advance to Eurovision from their respective national finals this cycle.
We will soon discover who will join Tamar Kaprelian, Aly Ryan, and Bess in Popjustice Eurovizh history!
As always, we focus on the countries that held some sort of competition with multiple songs. So a quick hello and goodbye to the following countries who selected internally, and therefore are useless to us right now: Armenia, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, France, Georgia, Greece, Israel, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
By the way, this year, our show will be hosted by two powerhouse performers – a member of a legendary British pop group wth 7 top 10 singles to their credit, and an Emmy-Award winning star of the smash hit show Ted Lasso...
Why yes, of course it’s Su-Elise and Brett Goldstein!!
I will probably never reference them again, but any excuse to do Google Image searches for my husband!
The Contest has two parts. You are welcome to participate in one or both of them.
In the next post, I list the 24 countries competing and their eligible songs.
Please PM me with your favorite songs from each list - a maximum of 5 per country.
Your first place entry will be awarded 5 points, second place 4, etc.
If you only feel like voting for 1, 2, 3, or 4 songs, that is fine.
The points will still be allotted as if you had ranked 5 songs.
You do not have to vote for every country in round one, you can pick and choose the ones you care about!
PART II: The standard Eurovision voting begins, on our list of 24 songs as chosen by Part I voters.
Please send me your list of top 10 finalists, and kindly include some sort of indication of the order so I do not mess it up.
The deadline for final votes will be Sunday, July 9th 23:59 in the final time zone.
Let the Eurovizh Alt-Song Contest 2023 begin!!
