Seen as the NF season is already with us!

Remember that feeling when your favourite pre-selection song is cruelly denied it's rightful place at the Eurovision Song Contest? Hopefully this contest will ease the pain by putting that song back in the competition

The idea is that after we've watched all the finals during the NF season we do a vote on which song we would have chosen. Once we get to the end of the season we can hold our alternative Eurovision 2013 final. We'll add the songs we voted for to the internally selected entries and hopefully we'll have a final which is a bit different and show some countries what could have been

If there's enough interest we can come up with some sort of voting rules etc. Is anyone interested.....?

Belarus

Tonight Belarus will select one of:

Vitaliy Voronko - I Wonder How You
Max Lawrence - I Love Your Charming Eyes
Alyona Lanskaya - Rhythm Of Love
Yankey - Letter To Mother
Beaver Band - Incredible Girl
Daria - Catch Me Again
Uzari - Secret
Alexei Gross - One Way Love
Nuteki - Save Me
Satsura - Get Out Of My Way


After all the performances we'll vote to show how right (most probably how wrong ) Belarus were and have our first song in the Alternative Eurovision Song Contest.

As the finals have different numbers of songs in them the voting format will have to be different for each. Seen as there are 10 songs in this one it makes sense to use the normal Eurovision format of 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

The voting will probably stay open for a few days to let anyone who wants to catch up afterwards have a chance to vote too.

Enjoy the show!

I'll leave the vote open for a few days. Not sure when I'll close it but I'll definitely give 24 hrs notice before I do

Belarus Result

Thanks to everyone who voted, we've ended up with 14 sets of votes to decide whether we agreed with the real result - we did!

1. Alyona Lanskaya - Rhythm Of Love 119 pts
2. Daria - Catch Me Again 104 pts
3. Satsura - Get Out Of My Way 100 pts
--------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Nuteki - Save Me 99 pts
5. Alexei Gross - One Way Love 93 pts
6. Yankey - Letter to Mother 80 pts
7. Uzari - Secret 66 pts
8. Vitaliy Voronko - I Wonder How You 52 pts
9. Max Lawrence - I Love Your Charming Eyes 51 pts
10. Beaver Band - Incredible Girl 45 pts

Up until yesterday it looked like Satsura had it in the bag but yesterday and today from the 5 sets of votes sent, Alyona received a 12 and four 10's. Nuteki fell from 2nd in the real result to 4th but Satsura finished in 3rd in both votes. The Belarus televote had Daria in last place, so it's a shame for her that we aren't from Belarus!

So even if Alyona ends up being replaced again for Malmo, she's definitely taking part in one contest

1. Alyona Lanskaya - Rhythm of Love

The voting for Switzerland will begin after the final on Saturday

It will just be the songs from the final Phil

I'm thinking the result might be a foregone conclusion already

I wasn't sure if a particular day had been mentioned. Thanks though, I'll try to send some votes in if I'm back before this closes.

I don't want to put an official deadline on the voting Ben but I'll make sure I give at least 24 hours notice before I close it.
