Event: Worldvision Song Contest!

joe you fucking lazy cunt ;)


PLEASE READ THE RULES TO MAKE SURE YOUR SONG QUALIFIES. IF IT DOES NOT, IT WON'T BE ACCEPTED.

ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE WILLING TO LISTEN TO 11 SONGS AND JUDGE THEM BEFORE THE CLOSING DATE.


During this event, you will be submitting a song to us! It works a lot like the Eurovision Song Contest! There are a few rules that your song must abide by.

You must choose a country to represent! Hopefully we will get a variety of countries with different music styles. Songs in foreign languages are encouraged.
You cannot choose America or the United Kingdom: or your native country. You cannot tell anyone the country you have picked, or hint at it.

• It must not have charted in the top 40 in the UK or US.
• It cannot be an artist you would expect others to know. Certainly no A-listers. Please check with me if you are unsure.
• It cannot be a song or artists other members or members of your team that enter know you like. We will spot cheating in the marking.
• The song must have been released since the 1st January 2010.
• A YouTube link or MP3 file must be available.
• A maximum length of 6 minutes 30 seconds, minimum 1 minute 30 seconds.

If you feel you do not know any songs that fit the criteria... that is the point! :P You have until Sunday to pick a country, and go find some talent and talent-spot from the country you're representing. Search their charts, the spotify - go ask on Reddit! Its up to you. It's meant to be a challenge. :keke:


Competition Rules:

You CANNOT discuss your song choice or tell your teammates the song, artist, or genre you have put forward. You cannot release any detail. This is an independent challenge.

• You must PM me your song choice.

• Each team is assigned four players. First come, first serve.



How is the winner decided? The Judges?


Of course, music taste is subjective, therefore allowing the tastes of seven Judges to decide the winner would be slightly odd. But I do believe the seven Judges have seven very different tastes, and this is a good thing!

However, the Judges will only account for 50% of the vote. All 12 members that submit a song, will be asked to listen to and score the 11 other songs submitted! A .zip file will be provided, and the contestants will not know which songs are their teammates, thus preventing any cheating. I expect fair play here, and for you to judge what your actual favourite song is. It is extremely unlikely that a member would rank more than one of his teammates at the top, particularly if their song hasn't done well with opposing teams. We will detect cheating here - and your team will be punished as well as you if we see it.

The Judges votes will be worth 50% of the score, and the contestant's votes for each other will be worth the other half. These will then be combined together. That ensures a good amount of people will be judging the 12 songs

So... what type of song should I submit?

As for what type of song you want to go for... that is up to you! Just like Eurovision proves, a song from any genre can be popular with gay males. Whether it be ABBA, Celine Dion, heavy rock band Lordi, or a power ballad like Conchita Wurst offered.

You have until Sunday 30th July to decide on and submit a song that fits with the criteria

You will then have until August 4th to listen to and grade all the other songs. Do not enter the challenge if you have no interest in listening to the other 11 songs or do not have the time.

Only the top 3 songs will receive points for this challenge.
