DS Fantasy Eurovision 33 - Cardiff
 
Happy New Year! This is the 33rd edition of DS Fantasy Eurovision and we're back in Wales, this time the capital Cardiff.

The contest will begin at the end of the Champion of Champions next week but I'll open it up for people to sign up from now.

Some hosts like to cram as many countries as possible into a contest but I don't ;). I've got a list of 56 countries I'll use and that's as far as it will go. If we get over 28 sign ups we'll see what happens :p Hopefully everyone will get two but if sign ups go through the roof then some people will get one. If that hasn't put you off, PM me to sign up.

Details on the format will be announced next week.

P.S. Please only sign up if you intend to actually vote

Yay, well done for sticking to the limit kvn ^_^

Glad to see we've dropped a few countries.

This years CofC selection shows that quantity doesn't always mean quality.

kvn 08-01-2013 16:15

Sign up will slam shut at 4pm tomorrow so I can hand countries out after the CoC final.

I'm afraid for those pesky pickers it's random countries all the way :p. I'll have a look at everyone's previous countries and try to give everyone something new though!

I was hoping it'd be picks, but at least I may find a great song still!

Welcome to Cardiff and the 33rd edition of DSFE.

Tonight you'll receive your two countries for the contest. There will be two semi finals with one of your songs in each of them. The top 12 songs from each semi final will go into the final.

The usual rules apply when you pick your song, Eurovision artists yes - Eurovision national final songs - no. http://dsfe.wikia.com/wiki/DS_Fantasy_Eurovision << No songs from here. No songs more than 5 minutes long etc. etc.

Most of the microstates have been sent home so all the countries should select from their own countries singers but if you find someone you want to send who has a reasonable connection to the country you can choose them as your artist.

You can start submitting songs to me on Sunday 13th January with the deadline being Tuesday 15th January. Please don't submit any songs before Sunday or I will send the Eurovision fairies round to haunt you in your sleep.

Be safe and remember it's only a game ;)

:D

Yeah that might sound strange but I'm not here over the weekend so any songs sent in wouldn't be announced till Sunday night anyway and hopefully that will stop people picking with haste ;)

stanld03 09-01-2013 21:07

I've got my 2 Countries and... erm... I'd better start searching lol.

Gwen 404 09-01-2013 21:07

ooh i want mine too!

phill363 09-01-2013 21:10

Impatient :(

Pooley 09-01-2013 21:11

penguinperson 09-01-2013 21:15

Barfs at one in particular all over thread

phill363 09-01-2013 21:20

Oh dear, hmm will have to get searching :)

kvn 09-01-2013 21:26

One change to the rules for San Marino. The FM has pleaded for mercy :D and I suppose they were right, the rules did make it almost impossible. San Marino can pick from Italy but it can't have been inside the Italian Top 40.

21stCenturyBoy 09-01-2013 22:13

I love both my countries- both would have made my picks!

I adore the format for this contest too- smaller just works so much better in this contest!

Well done all round kvn!
