  1. Congrats, Algeria, on you 3 rd place.

    Thanks for the votes and for having listened to Criolo.

    Thanks, Patrick, for all your work.

    Thanks, everyone, for the songs. 🙂

    P.S. I – I have six songs outside the final top 10 in my personal top 10, four of those are the bottom 4 songs. We are very different people. 🙂
    P.S. II – My two alternate songs were the Netherlands (11th) and Norway (12th).

  2. 12th! I’m thrilled. It seems that the Philippines juuuuust missed out on the Top 10, which is something I didn’t expect, especially reading the comments here after the voting. And I supposed 12th as an overall placing is appropriate, after reading that the entry just missed out on the Top 10 for a few voters.

    Placing 12th without any 12 points scored is also quite an achievement, especially considering it outranked four songs that earned 12 points (including Japan with two 12 pointers!).

    Many thanks to Slovakia (Tecku) for the 10 points, the highest I placed in any rankings! The Slovak entry was a solid 14th in my personal rankings and I really wished I could have given it points.

    Thanks to Kazakhstan (Donnie), Poland (Marc), and South Korea (Jon) for the 8 pointers!

    And thanks to the others who voted for the Philippines: USA (Patrick), Brazil (Shevek), Netherlands (Stommie), and Mongolia (arpatilaos).

    Congratulations to Brazil and Shevek! Your song almost made my Top 5 but it seems you didn’t need the points anyway. 😉

  3. I am not going to give up just like that, so in the next ETSC I will continue to represent Denmark, trying to find something that people here probably haven’t heard of. And in any case, it is more important for me that it represents something I love musically and artistically, than it gets votes. So even if I come last again, I will continue to select songs that I feel for 🙂

    • Same here. The funny thing is that I do really well or totally fail. I am still waiting for my 1st mid-table result. So far: 5th – 35th (with 10 pts from Oxi … 🙂 …) … – 5th – 7th – 2nd – dead last.

      • That’s for sure. Plus I insist on entering songs and artists that are part of my musical universe/pantheon. Everything else doesn’t make sense imo. Btw, I have realised that my entries struggle to get points from people living north … Well, I’ve always been a Mediterranean soul trapped in a German body. 😉
        And North includes Dimitri, who is a Scandinavian soul trapped in a Greek body. 😉 🙂

      • I am a Scandinavian soul trapped in a Scandinavian body, but I often like southern songs too. That being said, I have to admit I am mostly shaped by a Northern European music tradition.


      • Yes, I can tell from your voting patterns. And don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad thing. Celebrate diversity. And I read your comments about loving several ESC songs from Cyprus, Italy and Portugal. Those are my 3 favourite south European ESC countries too. So there is some common ground … unless you love the ones I don’t like. Do you like f. e. Cyprus 1992, 1994, 2010? Portugal 1971, 1976, 1984 and 2008? Italy 1992 and 2011 and 2012?


      • Cyprus 1992: Yes 100%, I absolutely love it. 1994: I like it, 2010: I like the feeling, but I find the melody a bit weak, especially in the chorus. But tbh. I don’t think CY2010 sounds particularly southern.

        Portugal 1971: I haven’t heard it for a long time, so I’ll need to catch up on it. As I remember it, it was nothing special.
        1976, 1984 and 2008: I love them.
        And I love all the Italian songs you mentioned. Especially 1992 which I have as one of my all time favourites at the moment 🙂


      • 🙂
        I love the backing singers for Cyprus 2010. I have a very soft spot for backing singers … just like for everyone else who tends to get overlooked. Must be some childhood trauma … And no, CYP10 doesn’t sound southern. It represented Wales under the Cypriot flag after all. 🙂
        You need to listen to POR71 in studio version. It’s a fantastic song imo, but the live rendition was a bit underwhelming. Plus, the dress Tonicha wore is very distracting. 😦

      • Oh wait a minute, it’s “Menina do alto da serra”… I had almost forgotten it. I don’t know if I love it, but it’s a very strong song and brilliantly performed vocally. It doesn’t quite reach the level of f.e. “Desfolhada Portuguesa” from 1969.

        But I rarely think about dresses, you know.


      • Neither do I but if they go to extremes like Tonicha did in 1971, I can’t help but notice. And I agree, “Desfolhada Portuguesa” is another strong Portuguese entry that was criminally underrated imo. I really like their 2009 song too. Btw, the other day someone commented on Prinz Blog (a comment you’ll find all over the www) that Portugal should finally stop sending boring fado songs. Oh my, most ESC fans know absolutely nothing about music because:
        a. fado isn’t boring at all imo … and
        b. Portugal has sent a fado only once (1976)

        I wish that RTP would convince one of their great fadistas to do ESC. 🙂


      • Eurosong.dk are often bashing Portugal for sending low-key songs – one of the cases where I don’t agree with them. They were very positive about PT 2009 though.

        I did agree when they bashed Suzy’s song last year though.


      • Suzy is a fantastic lady but her song sucked big time, and ESC is about songs after all. I need to go to bed now. Good night Anders.


      • I accept the fact i’m a scandinavian soul trapped in a Greek body(lol) but i have given you lots of pts in the previous editions.It’s just that i failed to connect with the Italian song this time. 🙂

      • Sorry, I don’t keep track of the votes. I thought that only few points had come my direction from your juries. 🙂 And even if you did not vote for my entries, it’s totally fine to do so. 🙂

      • = The 2 South European ethnic songs I submitted. 🙂
        And wow, every other song? Even Slovakia?


      • I definitely like the Nordic gloominess but i also like my more dramatic stuff.I have my greek/mediterranean side too. 😉


  4. Wanted to thank AlexGreece, Arpatilaos and Donnie for your points, and a special mention goes to Stommie even though it was only 1, I genuinely never expexcted a point from you, and it was such a lovely surprise. Also a big thank you to AlexUsa for the 10 and of course huge thanks to Jon and Tecku for the 12’s! ❤

    As for ETSC Max will be representing Ukraine #Doublemeaning

  5. After having read all the comments, I’m so pleased that FdlC thrived while I was away. One huge thanks, again, to Patrick for organizing this pre-ETSC break edition. 😀 Also, a big congrats to Shevek for snatching his first win and the first win for a non-European country since FdlC 2, which was won by the United States. 😉 Since we’re breaking for ETSC to kick off, I’d like to announce that I’m interested in representing Finland there. Whether you should be excited or afraid has yet to be decided. 😉 xD
