Good luck and enjoy the contest!

UPDATE: 11 of the 12 participants have voted and we have a winner! I’m preparing a results video right now, but I will tell you that Suriname failed to vote on time, so they will be disqualified. The results should be posted here within the next day or two. Thanks for playing everyone!

  1. I will probably cast my vote in the next few days, along with (maybe) some comments on the songs. I can say at the moment that there are two songs I really love, and only one I truly hate. The rest are okay.

    My early prediction is that Dominican Republic will win, with Colombia and Sweden close behind.

    Also, here was my runner-up, in case anyone is interested


      • How many people can vote? If it is only the participants, then the voting period could be reduced significantly. Don’t you think?


      • Only the participants can vote, so yes, it’s a little long, but that’s mostly for my sake, since this ended up being a really hectic week for me, so instead of making everyone rush to vote and wait for the results video, I would rather give people (and myself) a lot of time to vote and then the results directly after. However, if everyone votes before the end of the voting period, I’ll do my best to get the results out right after that. 🙂


      • Four people have not voted yet? Come on guys, you had so many days to rank 11 entries and vote just 5…


  2. Seeing as the results will be released in the next few days (right?), I thought I’d release my scores:

    12/12, 12/12, 8/12, 8/12, 5/12, 5/12, 5/12, 4/12, 3/12, 2/12, 0/12

    As you can see I reallyreally loved two songs, and found the rest only good to okay to terrible. I’d probably score my own entry 10/12.
