A beginner's guide...

Welcome to the WorldVision Song Contest, based on the Eurovision Song Contest, aiming to provide and unite nations from different parts of the World through music. The WorldVision Song contest is an outlet to showcase the popular or native music of your nation. As with every contest, there are a few simple rules and regulations that you'll need to follow.

  1. To start, you must sign up for the contest. Do so by using the form below and posting that you sign up in this thread. Make sure you sign up before the cutoff date. You won't be penalized if you sign up and don’t end up posting a song. You then post the song in the IC thread after a host vote (see previous contests to see what a "normal" post looks like).
  2. At the end of the host bidding period, all nations which have signed up at that point may vote for the nation that will host the contest. Instructions will be posted by this account, and all host votes should be telegrammed to this account as well. The winning bidding nation will then create the IC thread.
  3. The contest is based upon the Eurovision Song Contest: nations will "perform" their song. No real-life song can be entered into the WorldVision Song Contest; of course, the melody can be used (usually linked via YouTube). At least 80% of the song’s lyrics must be original, and translations are not allowed. Nations are free to choose to host a national final or internally select their representative. English is not compulsory, and other languages are encouraged.
  4. Once the IC thread has been posted whenever the winning bidding nation chooses, nations will submit songs before the deadline. After the deadline nations may not edit or alter their song in any way, unless otherwise instructed by the Committee. Also, after the deadline and any interval act (wait for the signal from the host nation), nations vote, ranking their top ten songs in the following format: 12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 in the IC thread. Nations may not vote for themselves. All nations that post a song in the IC thread must vote.


If you don't know how to sign up, use this form below; this should help. Not all of these fields have to be filled in, but it certainly helps.

Code: Select all
[b]Nation Name:[/b] Your nation's name goes here.
[b]Official Broadcaster:[/b] Your official broadcaster for WV goes here.
[b]Song Title:[/b] The IC Song title goes here.
[b]Artist(s) Name(s):[/b] The name of your act goes here.

[b]Tune:[/b] The real life tune you're basing your song on goes here.


  1. A debutante nation cannot bid to host the WorldVision Song Contest. A nation must have entered and completed one edition in order to qualify to host a following edition. Furthermore, a nation that has put a host bid CANNOT vote for their own bid. This ensures a democratic and fair result.
  2. At least 80% of the song’s lyrics must be original, and translations of real life songs will result in disqualification. If you suspect another entry to be either wholly or mostly plagiarised, please telegram the WorldVision Committee with your concerns. The committee will then review the entry before making a judgement. If your entry is disqualified for whatever reason, you will not be reinstated even if you edit your entry.
  3. All nations that post a song in the IC thread must vote. Failure to do so will result in a one-contest ban.
  4. Each nation may enter ONE puppet nation (that is another nation controlled by the same player); the master nation must confirm their puppet on the thread. Should a nation is found to be in breach of the one-puppet nation rule, sanctions and a disqualification will be put in place.
  5. If a nation enters a puppet nation, the maximum amount of points that can be awarded to each nation is up to five points thus ensuring a fair and more equal chance for all nations to succeed within the Contest. If a nation is found to have awarded a higher amount of points, the Committee will first allow said nation to alter their votes. If said nation fails to adhere to Committee reminders, the votes will be rendered void and will result in disqualification. A user controlling a master and puppet nation together can only award a third nation a total of 18 points.
  6. Under no circumstances will bullying, offensive and/or intimidating language or provocations of any form be accepted within the Contest, within both IC and OOC threads. WorldVision promotes peaceful and friendly environment. Failure to comply will result in disqualification. If at any point, you feel you are a victim, or feel someone has been victimized by another nation, contact the Committee, or a member of the Committee immediately. The Committee will ensure anonymity/confidentiality at all times.
  7. Only the current host of a Contest or the WorldVision Committee can reveal results during the voting process. Conspiring with fellow users to rig any of the votes is illegal and will result in sanctions.
  8. Users may "reserve" slots in the running order of the contest, but if you do so and don't finish your entry by the deadline, you will receive a one-contest ban. An entry is accepted if it has a complete set of lyrics, regardless of whether stage directions have been finalized or not. You may also state that you are withdrawing from the contest on the OOC thread.
  9. Users may not edit their entries or votes after the deadlines for any reason, including spelling or grammatical errors, unless otherwise instructed to by the Committee. If you'd like to edit something in after the deadline, please ask the Committee for permission first.


So basically, be original, try to be fair, don't be a jerk, and have fun. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to TG the Committee- it helps if you add the Committee's individual member names (Besen, Darkmania, Ethane, Kalosia, Nekoni) in the "To:" box along with "WorldVision Committee" for a faster response.

Even if you've missed the deadline or aren't participating, feel free to discuss the contest in this thread or post commentary in the IC. You'll find that people greatly appreciate some good commentary.

With all that said, welcome to WorldVision!

Estogium is in as Britonisea will confirm...

These images were circling around the internet for the past few days. It's not the first time that Estogium's supposed bidding plans have been leaked. Could this time be the real deal?

What a pretty logo! A black rose - so symbolic! WorldVision in The Estograd? Yes Please! This image also came out with it...

I guess we will find out on the 19th April 2019 whether it's a possibility that we could be going to V'Estograd for the 73rd WorldVision Song Contest!

Cana dor Besein 73

Postby Besen » Tue Apr 09, 2019 6:31 pm

Hello world. Welcome to the 3rd edition of our national final “Cana dor Besein”, where 6 acts will compete for the right to represent Besen at the Worldvision Song Contest.

These six songs have been crafted based on the artists rather than the song itself, which has proved to be useful for BC1, as they have been able to scout some great talent, without worrying about the “wow” factor first.

We ask for international jury voting for these songs, and so if you want to help choose our act, send a ranking from worst to best with the best being 1, and the worst being 6. We have found great results from this system, and we greatly appreciate your support.
You may send votes via telegram or discord message.

1 | Sana Delisá - “Better Without You”
Avril Lavigne - Head Above Water


2 | IOSA - “Phone”
Marshmello - Alone


3 | Leona - “Butterfly”
Florina - In The Shadow


4 | Jenny Sadera - “No Lie”
Brequette - No Enemy


5 | Keno Demeriana - “Love Forever”
Blair St. Clair - Now or Never


6 | Sonique Bontis & Jaymes Lhon - “Downfall”
Alicia Keys, Jussie Smollett - Powerful


Voting deadline: Monday, 15 April 2019 at 20:00 BST

Main Nation Ministry's National Finals!

The Masked Singer

OOC: Before we show the singers, let MNM explain to you some of his own commentary on reality TV, in general.

"Reality TV will probably be one of the most familiar concepts in fiction ripped from real life. When you watch Real Housewives to where you know that some stuff is clearly staged, seeing how ridiculous the main stars are acting, there are people who watch shows of a bunch of rich spoiled people arguing and fighting. Why they watch it with some knowing it's fake will be a mystery. When it comes to game shows or any contest with a prize, one would make a show with a theme in mind. Normally, when you're on TV, any mistake that you will make will be shown to millions. The obsessed FOX and TLC left their marks in infamy for their ideas on what to show to the public in the name of reality TV which overlaps with trash TV. It's a concept that humanity will be doomed to repeat in history, knowing that the consequences wouldn't end the world."

"When it comes to music, one immediately thinks American Idol or America's Got Talent. Though American Idol is the one to increase the common knowledge of reality TV and influence several similar shows. Simon Cowell realized what people were seeing him as after being a judge on the show, so he went Mr. Nice Guy on others. Nowadays, while reality TV still exists, the use of social media will...pretty much makes things worst in honesty, due to it's mass appeal. Even if reality TV will exploit whatever controversial issue that is apparent and resort to staging to make things look real to the public, it will shape the paradigm of people presented. I been to a results show on AGT, where I felt that watching it on TV was better than going to the real thing. Reality TV exists to put a glamour on things, where a celebrity looks famous on TV, while if you run into them in person, they mainly look like normal people. This excerpt isn't to have your TV unplugged, it's to remind you that even though television has shaped generations and more to come, there are other ways to be famous rather than fail miserably on the X Factor."

"What does the Masked Singer do to be involved with reality TV? While it's nothing like it's Korean origins, it does show how we're willingly to make fiction into reality, where the show itself is a fever dream as described by Vulture. My main criticism is that the judges are complete morons. So what's the answer for reality TV?"

"There is no right or wrong answer. There is no suggestion to watch or not watch reality TV."

"It's making sure you don't treat people as garbage when using criticism, along with being aware of what would happen if you made a scene on TV." - MNM


Description: Ladies and Gentlemen, due to some idea from a commentator from WV71, Main Nation Ministry is doing a national final where you will not know the identifies of 3 individuals who are signed up to perform. However, the catch is one singer must perform one song. Clues on who the masked singers might be will be hinted at each singer category. The rules for this national final is simple. There will be two deadlines. Voters are to vote for which song would suit 3 of the musicians below. The next deadline will be choosing which musician will be performing in WV73.

First Deadline: April 16th - Deadline for voting on songs

Second Deadline: April 23th - Deadline for voting on musicians
- Current

This national final includes the following IRL musicians, varying on genre, though song can mainly classified as alternative or indie, such as..
Jordan Hill, Fall Out Boy, Sonic Youth, Weezer, The Breeders, Bon Jovi, The Strokes, The Chemical Brothers, Primus, My Chemical Romance, Panic! At the Disco, Tally Hall, and Lemon Demon.

(You're to vote for songs with points of 1-5. 5 is the song you like the most, while 1 is the song that you see as your least favorite.)

Shark
Description: Shark is as the name implies, wears a cartoonish shark costume (strangely similar to a memetic performance to a sporting tournament). Shark is the only male singer and the oldest out of the trio. He will be performing songs that are mainly described as rock. We asked him some questions where he gave a statement of his own. Please note that all musicians will have their real voices not revealed till their performance debut.

"I thought it was hilarious to be dressed up as a shark, since I figured they stuff me into the Stanley the Snakefish mascot costume, instead. I don't really bite. I played football, though I'm still a bit of a leader. When I learned that Dragon was here, I thought it was a coincidence or that the Leader might have signed her up. I met up with her and she explained she was ok with being a masked singer, though she doesn't think people will vote for her. Skeleton isn't someone I'm familiar with, since I don't keep track of gossip. Before you folks at home vote, I would like to say this. Ride on shooting star."

Songs:
Weezer - Buddy Holly
Bon Jovi - Livin on a Prayer
The Strokes - Reptilia
The Chemical Brothers - Believe
Primus - John The Fisherman

Dragon
Description: While an actual image isn't provided, a word description is still available. Dragon is as the name implies is dressed up as a dragon. Dragon wears a silver dragon mask with some LED eyes for cosmetic effect. Dragon's main outfit consists of a set of a black and red leather jacket, pants, and finger-less gloves to show their black colored nails. Dragon also has a red cape in the pattern of dragon scales, along with a black lining.

Being the youngest singer, Dragon is available to shed some light of herself, even if her nervous attitude is visible with a mask on, she will be performing songs mainly of an indie nature, though she did decided to do a song in an attempted style of Jessica Madden.

"I don't really have stage fright. I have to go on stage before, though I never really am the performer type. I guess it's common for me to be nervous, seeing I was in the bad limelight once, though I thank the Leader for helping me. I know about Shark, he happened to try to help me also. For Skeleton, I met her once and asked her about some experiences that she has, since there was this one time where I.. Well, you think I'm crazy, though I see Skeleton as someone wanting to be friendly. I kinda have an interest in dragons, though the reason is a bit complex. I'm not expecting to be on stage, though I will watch from the sidelines if someone else makes it through."

Songs:
Jordan Hill - Remember Me This Way
Fall Out Boy - Dead On Arrival
Sonic Youth - Teen Age Riot
Weezer - High as a Kite
The Breeders - Divine Hammer

Skeleton
Description: Skeleton isn't really dressed as a skeleton, but she has a bone motif present. The makeup team who were attending Main Nation Ministry's performance in WV69 will be helping Skeleton for her performance, to which Skeleton's song will be performance in glow in the dark. Despite having her long hair visible, the makeup team adds some washable dye to change the hair color to white. Skeleton wears a pink half face mask, that while looks normal, when it's glow in the dark, the bottom of Skeleton's face and the mask form a glowering white skull. For an outfit, Skeleton will be wearing a Victorian-era light pink dress that shows skeleton bones when in the dark.

Slightly older than Dragon, Skeleton does have some knowledge of music and how to prep for it. Her song will be mainly themed around electronic, along with getting some song ideas from Jessica Madden herself, who's helping Skeleton. Jessica Madden has kept Skeleton's identify a secret, while she threatened to duct tape her mouth, if pressured. Though Skeleton herself asked not to.

"Jessica Madden are afflicted with each other. I know that Jessica Madden isn't a heavy-hitter, but I know her in person that's she does show some compassion and tries to relate to one another. It gives me relief that I don't have to be out of my own costume when performing, since I don't want to scare everyone. I did see what Shark looked like without his shark outfit. He does look casual wearing pink, though it's my favorite color in a different sense. For Dragon, she's nice to Jessica, even if there was some mishaps with them, though it wasn't arguments. I do know that Madden will cheer me on, so I do hope some people will take a listen to what I have in store."

Songs:
Lemon Demon - Touch Tone Telephone
My Chemical Romance - I'm Not Okay
Tally Hall - Turn The Lights Off
Panic! At The Disco - Camisado
Lemon Demon - You're At The Party


Remember to vote for songs from each musicians! Do your best to choose which masked singer you want on stage! Also, make sure to send your votes by TG to MNM! And even though this is optional, if you managed to figure out the identifies of all three singers, make sure to send your guesses by TG, where your reward shall be the bragging rights and a mention on the official entry in the IC thread!

Presenting my signature signature!
Procrastination... is the art of knowing you have a job to do but know there's like a year till it's due. It's elemental for the Asopin soul to survive in such a slow-paced world.
Bored of having to see Juventus winning the Schudetto too many times? Can wait to see that match where Ronaldo didn’t shoot at all? Tired of seeing Napoli fight for first place when there’s no point? Oh boy, you’ve found a new friend.

I go around with a curse to my name: Whenever I post on something, do not expect an immediate response or post.

Libumelian is basically Spanish but a little altered and we added the letter ‘ć’.

"Welcome to Izmepisma. 9 songs have been chosen out of a field of hundreds waiting for their shot at Izmedu's WorldVision baton, but only one song can remain standing"

Izmepisma once more found renewed success in the form of Gorana Sever's "Mrznja," coming in 5th in an especially competitive WorldVision. This adds to the impressive bevy of results that the national final has provided for the Izmeduan delegation and RTI, and was especially a relief for the channel. While celebrating the festivities of the 72nd WorldVision Song Contest, those in Vodiznad's RTI HQ knew that it was going to be business as usual once the excitement coursed through everybody's veins. In the lead up to the upcoming WorldVision Song Contest, RTI wanted to stake out a more concerted approach to attract more top talent to the national final. After largely letting word of mouth dominate the previous edition's submission season, this time, RTI were doing their best to attract as many diverse genres and performers to the fold. Did they succeed in this mission? Or did the feared slump happen?

There was a similar level of interest in submitting for the NF that was maintained from last edition. In the end, about 1370 entries were submitted for Izmepisma consideration, with artists coming from all corners of Izmedu and even getting a few submissions from artists long thought to have shunned the Izmeduan music industry entirely or expressed no interest on the record to represent Izmedu. The team had to make difficult cuts, almost to the point where an expansion in the domestic televoting rounds was contemplated. However, RTI still chose 18 songs to progress through to the live semi-final televoting rounds. From there, 9 songs survived to make the grand final cut, ready for your votes.

THE OFFICIAL PLAYLIST FOR IZMEPISMA

To vote, simply send a TG to Izmedu with the format or send a Discord DM to Izmedu#6997 (and if you have a national final, let me know and I will vote for yours in return).

Several minutes ago, it was announced that the Allied States of Polkopia would return to the upcoming contest and the PNB would serve as the nation's broadcaster for Worldvision. Last edition, the nation was represented by artist Elisa Grace who finished in an impressive 3rd place. The Landa vy Polkopiya will still serve as the National Final for selecting Polkopia's entry for the 73rd Worldvision song contest. The PNB is, once again, keeping the semi-final format for the contest. In this format, there will be two semi-finals with 5 entries in each. International juries' votes will be collected, and then they will be randomly assigned a semi-final and their points will be distributed accordingly. Two songs will qualify to the Grand Final from each semi-final, as well as one 'Wildcard' entry. The international votes are then distributed to the songs in the Grand Final, along with the televote, and the winning entry will be determined then.

It is preferred to use one tune please, rather than a few different ones. It will help you in the contest- as you need to write lyrics to accompany.
