Next edition is a region-restricted edition. There are two parts to the edition:

  1. Countries that are in the commonly-accepted border of Europe will not be allowed to compete in the next edition.
    • In addition, any country that has competed more than three times in the Eurovision Song Contest is not allowed to participate in the next edition.
  2. In addition, there will be a secret twist to country selection for everybody but the winner, who gets to keep the winner privilege of picking his/her song first. Everybody must send a ranking of five countries they would like to participate with. If you send fewer than five countries, I will not accept your country submission and request that you send at least five countries.

    • Otto Dix along with Yanis, Emel Mathlouthi, Diana Navarro and Eivør are the crème de la crème of the artists I learned thanks to ETSC/FdlC.

      Talking of which this is the official video that Emel Mathlouthi has just released for “Ensen Dhaif” (ranked 5th in ETSC5):

      • Fantastic video clip. Thanks for sharing. Emel is among the most interesting artists we have atm imo. 🙂

        Several Diana and Eivør songs have been in my playlist for years. 🙂

      • It seems her new album is coming up in February. And I learn she has been working with an icelandic producer. So the best of North and South coming together 🙂

      • Plus, she has been living in France for some time. I hope to attend one of her concerts in the future. I am still totally in love with the live performance she gave in FdlC 6. 🙂


  1. It’s been some time since I got pissed off by our beloved wordpress. Now they won’t let me “like” the comments. Grrrr…


  2. I’ve been believing in Aalto’s talent since 2011 when she showed up in our scene. I am very happy for her. 🙂

    It seems that I am terribly late when it comes to preparing to FdlC 17. I may not be in, after all. 😦 We’ll see; good luck, finding songs guys! 🙂


      • One needs time to find 5 songs that one truly supports and time is something that I do not have atm; I am waiting for the dates to make a decision.

      • I have time today because I have a hangover from my father’s birthday party. My main problem is that it is difficult to enjoy music with a slight headache … LOL

    • You can also add countries for which you haven’t found a song yet but you know it would be easier to find one in case you get any of them.Then,you’ll have many days to do your search.

  5. off topic: today I watched a documentary on Dalida. What a tragic life for such an extraordinary beautiful woman 😦

    • She was also very far ahead of her time in many ways. This is a song of hers where she sings about a woman who fears she is losing her husband because he has fallen in love with a beautiful young guy. And she released a song with lyrics like that in 1979!

      • Thanks for sharing, Michos. I remember my aunt had one of her vynils back in the 70’s.


      • I remember reading her suicide note at the Paris-Match when I was a little boy learning french: “La vie m’est insupportable… Pardonnez-moi”…

      • Very French 🙂

        I have never heard of her, but there are probably environments where they listen to it. But in general, I think that type of music is not so popular here.

      • Not that French language artists never have had an audience here. I think most people will have heard of f.e. Edith Piaf or Jacques Brel. Plus there was a Serge Gainsbourg revival a few years ago.

      • Actually she had a very global 30-year-career, recording in 10 languages and selling more than 170 million records. And of course in the ’70s she became a celebrated flaming disco diva and gay icon 😉 This must be the campest record ever made:

      • I think she is really well known in all Europe. As Dimitris has said she has sold million of records world wide in the 60’s and 70’s 🙂

      • Reading about her, she seems to have had huge success in many European countries. However, Scandinavia isn’t mentioned, so maybe she didn’t really have an audience here.

        I asked my mum who was young in the 60’s and 70’s, and she didn’t know her.

  6. I will be sending a country from each continent minus Oceania.
    I will rank the most popular country first, cause I’m always late during submission and I’m gonna lose it anyway.
    Rest of my countries will be ranked in random ordrer cause I really don’t know what Patrick has in mind 🙂
