Controversial to whoever entered the French song that is rumoured to be the song representing France in the real 2017 Eurovision.

This is one of those contests where all my good finds for awful countries are sent. I really like that Kosovo song.

I'm finding my 'best' country hardest & my 'worst' country easiest. Is this strange?

Sent my songs in. I like them both, I am just worried that others will not see them as "risky" enough to help me.

To help me, I always put the contest songs at the beginning into one playlist. If anyone else wants/needs that, here you go (only updated when I am not at work lol)

Ooh, that's really helpful, thanks Beth!

Struggling to decide on an entry for my last country, managed to narrow it down from 7 to 3 in the last couple of days though so I'm getting there.

Is that not the normal course of events? Not trying to be obtuse here but is that not how it goes?

It was a singer deceptively singing in a foreign language, the language of my third country, but turns out they are from a nearby country instead.

It is tough luck, but I guess that is how it goes. I should say - take your revenge with the semantics! I'm off to find out how it all works but also what the general offer will be?

Loreen won for Sweden so isn't that against the rules?

Also what links Paloma to Andorra?

[1] Any ESC artist can be entred AS LONG AS the song IS NOT an NF song or their entry. The ONLY exception is Italy/San Marino/Vatican City/Sicily where San Remo is NOT by definition an NF.

[2] Paloma Faith is half Spanish and Spain having such a vast music scene is allowed 2 entries; One for Spain and One for a Spanish "microstate" that being Andorra.

I've got 2 entries & I've got 2 possibles for the other one. I'd really like to know what you get for taking a 'risk' as one of them is less 'safe' as an entry than the other. But I like that risky one more. Decisions :/

Ok fair play about Paloma, I thought the rule of

Your entry must never have participated in a Eurovision national selection, or Eurovision itself.

Meant the performer but re-reading it could be taken to mean the song itself. you
