Hello!

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. If you're new, continue on to the FAQ/Guide To WorldVision! If you are simply looking for the rules, look no further than the box below:

How It Works

  • Each nation will rank the other nations out of 10. Each number below 4 adds a scaled negative score whereas each number above 4 adds a scaled positive score (4 provides a neutral value). The complete score of each nation will be the total sum of the positive and negative scores. At this point, any nation with a negative score or 0 will be considered to have 0 televote points (only the bottom few nations might receive this). The rest of the nations with a positive score will have this score then multiplied until the total scores are equal to the amount of points distributed through the points on the IC thread (this from now is the IC "Juries").
  • This multiplied number will then be the televote score for each nation.
  • Unlike in the test-run, the committee will assume responsibility for the televote, that is its recording and maintenance. This info will be given to the host when all nations have voted on the IC thread or when the deadline passes. This will allow the vote to not be influenced by the host, and to make sure the formula used is accurate.
  • The committee will also be responsible for publishing the complete voting result overview at the end of the voting, including the individual votes of nations, as well as the overall voting breakdown.
  • If the percentage of nations receiving 0 points in the televote exceeds 10% of the total competing nations that edition, the committee will reserve the right to change these percentages so that the percentage of nations receiving 0 points falls under 10% once again, as long as the nation's raw televote score is above -10. In this case, weightings changes will be done so that it does not affect any position in the top 3.
  • The host will be free to announce these results how they see fit, with the committee's strong recommendation to reveal them in the style of either of lowest to highest in the televote, or according to current standings after the jury vote.
  • In the event of a tie, the jury vote takes precedence.

Televote Instructions

  • In addition to the standard 12-1 points that we all post on the IC thread (which remains the same) there will also be an additional requirement. Each contestant must also submit a response to a google form in which they will rate each song from 1-10 (out of a maximum of 10) - with 1 to a song which they hated and 10 to a song they loved (and everything in between).
  • There are no restrictions on televoting - You can allocate scores in the televote however you wish, and you do not need this to be the same metric by which you measure your "jury" scores. Some suggestions may be to split your scores according to the Music/Lyrics/RP etc., but this is optional. We will still check for invalid votes, for example every nation being ranked the same, or in a specific "pattern", but this won't be an issue if one votes fairly.
  • You can give your puppet a maximum of 6 out of 10 in the televote and vice-versa to the main nation. If you have a puppet you will have to submit a second set of televoting points - however, you can submit a single set of points and include the ranking for both your main nation and puppet nation in the same form. You must inform the committee if you wish to do this in advance.
  • If you do not submit a televote, you will receive a 25% penalty on your original televote score (which will then be redistributed among the rest of the nations according to their televoting score). It is strongly recommended that you submit a televote score, but if you don't submit one, you don't have to worry about being disqualified.



As it was introduced prior to the start of '79, the same strike system for punishments will be in effect, where players breaking certain contest rules will receive strikes depending on the severity.

    • One Strike: No immediate consequences;
    • Two Strikes: One-contest ban;
    • Three Strikes: Two-contest ban.
  • Strikes expire after five editions; however, a strike expiring during a ban does not edit or shorten it.
  • Bans stack; that is, a nation reaching three strikes within one edition is immediately banned for the following three editions.
  • Bans erase strikes once they are completed.

    Here are the following issues that can net you a strike:

    One strike:
    • Not voting in the contest (will also disqualify a contestant from competing)
    • Changing votes without Worldvision Committee supervision.
    • Posting halftime results when not the host or WVC & refusing to remove results (which also results in disqualification)
    • Posting an incomplete entry.
    • Not declaring a new puppet, or when transferring ownership of a puppet.

    Two strikes:
    • Engaging in tactical voting.
    • Intentionally refusing to vote.
    • Attempts to evade a ban.
    • Entering more than one puppet in the contest.


FAQ / Guide To WorldVision


I'm new here, how does this all work?

Welcome! Here at WorldVision, we write our own lyrics to existing songs, then vote on them! Many of us write performances and background information on the performer as well. This contest is based heavily on the Eurovision Song Contest, so it helps a lot if you're familiar with it! One major difference from it is that the winner doesn't host the next contest- here we have people bid each edition to host the next contest.

That sounds fun! How do I sign up?

Signing up is simple! You can fill out and post the application below, or simply state your interest in joining. If you do use the application, you don't need to fill everything in.

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.


This is all so exciting! I want to host!

In order to host, you need to have fully participated once, especially to get the feel of how the contest runs. While you wait, you can look at current bids to learn how good bids look like. If you've signed up before host voting has begun, then you can vote for the host! Once you've finished a contest, you can bid for host, as long as you don't vote for your own.

How do I write an entry?

Writing an entry is just a bit more work than Alexander Rybak makes it seem. Most of us use an existing song as a tune, which we usually link through YouTube, and rewrite the lyrics so that they are original- which means that we wrote them ourselves and did not copy the real lyrics (at least 80% should be your own, which is generally easy if you write your own). Translating real lyrics does not count!

To do well, it's best to write a performance and choose a tune that hasn't been used before - don't be afraid to ask us if you're unsure! In addition, it's always good to look at past contests and learn from the winners and highest placed entries.

If you do post a reservation/placeholder post for your entry, please make sure that you finish it with a completed set of lyrics. If you don't finish, or if you don't withdraw on the OOC thread, you will receive a strike, which is explained in the spoiler below this section.

The entry deadline passed, and there's a mistake in my entry! Can't I just fix it?

Please let the Committee know first! If it's a big edit, you'll need to ask for permission. If you're just fixing spelling, formatting, or a link, then it's fine! But if you make a big edit without permission, like finishing lyrics or adding more RP, you might get disqualified.

So what comes next? Voting?

Yes, that's right! After the entry deadline, you cannot edit your entry without permission from the Committee. After the host posts the interval act and opens voting, you may post your votes. Just like in Eurovision, you give 12 points to your favourite entry, then 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and finally 1 point to your next favourite. Please vote on time!! The host may choose to close voting after the deadline, but if you do not vote on time you will be disqualified.

Next, you do the televote. Here, it means that you open the form that is linked by the host, and rank each entry from 1 to 10, with 1 being worst and 10 being best. Ever since the official implementation of the televote in WV83, everyone's televotes will be revealed by the Committee, so you can see the full breakdown after the contest ends. We use a weighting system to calculate the televotes - this will be changed at the discretion of the committee if the number of 0's exceeds 10% of participating nations (this will be done only for those nations with a score of above -10).

This sounds awesome! I want to enter a puppet nation and write more entries!

You can do that! You may enter a second nation, but make sure you confirm that it is yours in the signups! However with great power comes great responsibility: you can only give a maximum of 5 points to yourself in the jury vote, and only a maximum score of 6 in the televote, and together with your main nation you can only give a maximum of 14 points to another nation.

I do not feel safe or welcome here. What do I do?

If you are bullied, harassed, intimidated/etc by someone within the contest, please contact the Committee or one of its members, and we will ensure confidentiality and analyze the situation. We will deal punishment as deemed appropriate depending on the severity of the offense.

I have more questions! Who do I ask?

If you have more questions you can ask in the thread, join the Discord server linked at the top of this post, or TG the WorldVision Committee. The Discord server is probably where you are going to get the fastest reply.


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 (Beepee, Ethane, Malta Comino Gozo, Nekoni, Todlichebujoku) in the "To:" box along with "WorldVision Committee" for a faster response. DM on Discord also works!

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 we all greatly appreciate some good commentary.

With all that said, welcome to WorldVision!

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!

To the Second Beepeean Song Festival. 

Tonight, we present the three songs vying for this year's title, and the chance to represent Beepee at the next WorldVision Grand Prix.

The three songs will be performed by Teddy Behr.

Teddy Behr, is 28 years old from the town of Wilburforce. A rising star of the Beepeean Schlager scene.

His eponymous debut EP, contains the three songs we are hearing tonight and each have stormed their way into the Beepeean Schlager Charts.  So who better to represent the little nation that could?

Melodie - Julian Reim - Grau

I'm under his spell again
My head feels like a runaway train
Heading down a one way track
I feel like I'm never coming back

And In the darkness,
And in the silence,
Lives a man.
He won't let me go,
Walk toward the light.

No I cannot break this spell
No matter how I try
No matter how I try
Can't find my way back home
No I cannot break this spell
No matter how I try
No matter how I try
Can't find my way back home

The world is so dark
I've been in this place before
The world is so dark
I've been in this place before

I hear him calling me,
Tempting me to step back again,
Back into a world that was
so safe and so calm,

But in the safety,
and in the calmness
Lies the pain
And if I go in there
you can't save me this time

No you cannot break this spell
No matter how you try
No matter how you  try
Can't find my way back home
No you cannot break this spell
No matter how you try
No matter how you try
Can't find my way back home

The world is so dark
I've been in this place before

The darkness comes for me
It fills my very being
As I pace the floor
I can feel the silence grow
There's no magic word
To save me from this fate
The darkness comes for me
Will he ever leave me alone
Will he ever leave me

No I cannot break this spell
No matter how I try
No matter how I try
Can't find my way back home
No I cannot break this spell
No matter how I try
No matter how I try
Can't find my way back home

The world is so dark
I've been in this place before
The world is so dark
I've been in this place before

Melodie - Julian Reim - Euphorie

Oh, walking by your room tonight
Looking for your reading light
Wonder what words I'd hope to say
Step by step
Thinking just of what comes next
Suddenly its a brand new day

If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

Dancing through a summer storm
Waiting for your love to come
Waiting for those clouds to drift away
So far away
But getting closer everyday
All I want is your love here to stay

If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

Let it shine, let it shine, on you

Hey, I can feel
Your light shining down on me
It makes me feel alive
So well

If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

Oh-woah, If you feel what I'm feeling
Come along with me
Come along, come along with me
See the sun in the sky,
Its rising up so high,
Let it shine, let it shine, on you

Come along, come along with me

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine


Image

Melodie - Julian Reim - Eine Welt Entfernt

Watching him there, across the floor
Wondering if he's looking at me
Then he smiles and it shines on me

I look in his eyes, hoping to find
Something inside that I've been missing
All that I need could be waiting here

And if I'm lucky, one day my love will come

When we dance,
My heart beats fast,
At the touch of your hand.
The smell of your hair,
Fills my heart and my mind.
If I asked you to come home with me,
In the morning would you be there?

Hem dicht tegen, zich aan houden,
terwijl we zwaaien, in zijn sterke armen ,
wachten op het moment, Ik heb zo lang gewacht.

Jij bent alles ik droom, alles ik nodig heb,
Je warme adem op mijn nek, geeft me leven,
bij elke ademhaling, allemaal van mij.

And if I'm lucky, one day my love will come

When we dance,
My heart beats fast,
At the touch of your hand.
The smell of your hair,
Fills my heart and my mind.
If I asked you to come home with me,
In the morning would you be there?

If I asked you to come home with me,
In the morning would you be there?

When we dance,
My heart beats fast,
At the touch of your hand.
The smell of your hair,
Fills my heart and my mind.
If I asked you to come home with me,
In the morning would you be there?


Now that you've heard all 3 songs, its time to vote for your favourites.

Confirming, and once again bringing you another wonderful edition of MGP Anta!


Image

Melodi Grand Prix Anta, shortened as MGP, is one of the most celebrated musical event in Antahbrantahstan, other than WorldVision Song Contest itself, with a rich history spanning 45 years of editions, and catapulting singers, bands, and groups into household names, surely MGP is a much beloved event by many. After its tremendous success with Tike Prihastiwi (WV86) and Claudia/Jasmine (WV87), now MGP Anta is coming back for more! With an excess of 2000-plus songs being received by RR, The RR WorldVision Committee sure had a very hard time in choosing only 10 amazing entries, whom will have the hard task to ensure another Top 5 placement, or simply a left-side placing in the scoreboard. Now, standing in front of you, international viewers, are 5 songs that have survived the Anturian public's first cut, which consists of:



Image

Song 1
Tune: Alexey Vorobyov - Sumasshedshaya


Song 2
Tune: NIKI - Lose


Song 3
Tune: Cedric Gervais ft. Liza Owen - Somebody New


Song 4
Tune: The Afters - Moments Like This


Song 5
Tune: Jonas Brothers ft. Karol G - X


PLAYLIST

Kindly vote using the 8-6-4-2-1 system, where you give your 8 points to your most liked entry, the 6 point to your second most liked entry, all the way down to 1 point for your least liked entry. Your vote should only be sent to username @Chicken#8105 in Discord, sending your votes through TGs will NOT BE COUNTED. The deadline for your votes is 29th of January, 23:59 (GMT +7). Good luck, and may the best entry win!

Dikla Romanova's 3rd place finish, and in particular, her 1st place in the televote had once again confirmed that HARESHET were travelling in the right musical direction. Another internal selection was planned, however the amount of entries received by the committee, some 375, caused some disagreements among members. While some wanted to maintain a more mature pop route, others thought a return to the fun dance music that Ertzei Kishim was known for was in order. Thus, a compromise was decided. Having received funding from HARESHET, Kdam 88 was announced, once again with a slight visual revamp. with the revamp seeing a marked upturn in interest. As was expected, dance-style entries dominated the the national final, but then it wouldn't be a Kishraeli national final without a party.

Last edition of Worldvision marked another Top-10 finish for Polkopia and the PNB opted to continue the tradition of using a National Final in order to determine Polkopia's entrant for the next edition of the contest. It should come as a surprise to no one that this National Final will once again take place in the form of the Landa vy Polkopiya, which has served as the National Final for Polkopia for decades and is one of Polkopia's longest-running TV shows. The contest dates back to 1972, where the winner of the competition received a cash price and was flown to Peeto in order to record more tracks with an established Polkopian record label. Of course, times in Polkopia are much different now, and apart from exposure on several media platforms, the winner of the Landa vy Polkopiya typically has the opportunity to represent Polkopia in the Worldvision Song Contest.

The lineup for this edition of the Landa vy Polkopiya has been revealed! As always, the PNB is calling on international juries to submit their votes before the conclusion of the semi-finals, and this result will be mixed with a televote in a 50/50 format in order to calculate the overall winner of the competition. The list of competing entries can be found below:

Semi #1


#1. Rena Whorak ft. KALINKA - Korol'tsa
Language: Polkopian
Title Translation: Queen
Tune: Pabllo Vittar feat. POCAH - BANDID*


#2.M0V3 - When the Sun Goes Down

Not bothering with an IC explanation for whatever because it's the same story as always but here's my NF anyway. Winner represents me at 88, runner-up represents me at 89, third place goes through to a third-placers NF, everyone else gets eliminated.

1. Kyandii - Lotus
(Tanuki - BABYBABYの夢)

2. The Humanoids - Class of '85
(Waterfront Dining - Miami Wicked)

3. Dr. Dan (feat Kyandii) - I'm Your Robot
(Yung Bae - Bae City Rollaz)

4. Sam Brown - Sinking Ship
(Saint Pepsi - Private Caller; special thanks to Amuaplye for being OK with me using it for my NF)

5. Antonia - Just As The Days Go By (MH2 Dance Mix)
(Anri - Remember Summer Days (Macross 82-99 Bootleg))

Same rules as always. 5 points to your favourite entry, 4 to your second favourite, all the way to 1 point for your least favourite entry. TG your votes to me or DM them to me on Discord. Voting ends Wednesday 27th January at 12:00am (Tuesday 26th January at 7:00pm ET) with the results being revealed sometime after I get up.

P.S. Unnecessary pre-confirmation of Placely Placington even though we know he's my puppet by now (but I still do it anyways because force of habit).

BACKSTORY
After Worldvision Song Contest 87 with North Alezia's another good top 10...
A: CEO
B: Director of International Musical Affairs of the ABA
C: A random employee

A: Well, great job for everyone, another addition to North Alezia's good reputation!
B: Great job indeed, anyway, that does mean we're going to search again for Ale-
A: Alezimania? Yes, please do start. However, this might be a small request, but can we redesign the whole Alezimania thing? I'm bored with the name, I feel that it's too 90s or something...
B: Well, sir, we do want to try and change stuff. But people like Alezimania... We wouldn't want to change the selection method again... But we do have the option to just redesign Alezimania and keep the season 6.
C: (overhearing) How about Alma?

(A and B surprised by the C's sudden suggestion)

A: Continue on, please....
C: Well, we do have a great opera singer in the 60s and that singer wears a full mask every time she's on stage. Her name is Alma Aliqi Safarrah
A: But what does she have to do with the present?
C: It shows the elegant North Alezian past, and her mask is iconic although a bit creepy so we might redesign it again next season. The mask's design is enough to be the trophy standard. Remember that Alezimania never had a standard trophy before
B: But that's just it-
C: It's also came from the two words of the previous name: ALezi MAnia.

(The three guys face each other and then-)

OOC:
Hi, everyone! Lez here

I am surprised that I got top 10 again. Thank you, and to celebrate, I redesigned Alezimania to feel more official and standardized.

In order to vote, you must rank all songs and give all songs ranging from the lowest which is 5, then it goes to 6,7,8, and jump to 10 for second best and then 12 points for the best song.

Please send your votes through Discord (HowDidIGetHere?#5211) or if you prefer to or if you don't have discord, please send in your votes through TG. However, it is very reccomended to vote through Discord since I'm more active there. I'll try to check TGs regularly.

The voting period spans one week and will end on the 28th of January 2021 at 5 PM WITA (9 AM GMT). If votes are considered not enough then voting deadline shall be extended by a day.

Please vote, and pick which song deserves to hold the Diamond decked ALMA mask shaped trophy! And the ticket to the 88th Worldvision Song Contest, that's all for now...

See you and have a nice day!

Lez
