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 jury 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 with punishment as deemed appropriate depending on the severity of the offence.

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 (Elejamie, Scotatrova, 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!

This edition of Worldvision marks Polkopia's return to the competition, after a brief hiatus. The nation will once again be represented by the PNB, which opted to continue the tradition of using a National Final in order to determine Polkopia's entrant for this 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. SAMIRA - Lose
Language: English
Tune: Agnes - Nothing Can Compare


#2.Rokzana - Sunflower
Language: English
Tune: Lana Del Rey - Wildflower Wildfire

Tune: Evangelia - Fotiá

Britonisea confirms participation...

After 38 editions, Mehlodhifehstivalhen will choose the Britonish entry for the upcoming WorldVision Song Contest...


For the WorldVision veterans, the name Mehlodhifehstivalhen may ring a bell as it used to be the national selection for Britonisea at the WorldVision Song Contest. After years as an online-only contest, it returns to television...

Mehlodhifehstivalhen (Songfest in English) selected the first-ever Britonish participant and while their result wasn't what the national final organisers were hoping for, Mehlodhifehstivalhen is a starting point for many of the current Britonish WorldVision and World Hit Festival artists. Before Vha Mehlodhivestoile reached the dizzying heights of popularity it has today, the main selection show for Britonisea at the World Hit Festival and WorldVision Song Contest was Mehlodhifehstivalhen. Notable participants of Mehlodhifehstivalhen include Evangeline Hope, Mello Cinde and Mehkl Maddox Ajax - all of whom won Mehlodhifehstivalhen before their WorldVision participations. The most recent time that this format was used to select the WorldVision act was the 57th WorldVision Song Contest when Mello Cinde won with her song, "Vindication" which went on to place 2nd in Machievelihe. As BVC withdrew from the contest an edition afterwards, handing the rights over to BITC, Mehlodhifehstivalhen was never renewed and ultimately dropped as the national final. The production company behind Mehlodhifehstivalhen and BVC had disagreements about the future of the contest, with the production company arguing that all of the resources that would have gone to Mehlodhifehstivalhen was instead going to the 2018 edition of Vha Mehlodhivestoile, which BVC put millions into after the poor result gained after the 2017 edition of the hit show. The production company behind Mehlodhifehstivalhen wasn't able to find a mainstream television broadcaster and turned to online services to broadcast the event which kept on running alongside (and as regular as) the WorldVision Song Contest despite there being no connection.

During Mehlodhifehstivalhen's online phase, the event would still attract an audience of 600,000 to a million viewers for the next 20-25 editions, but viewership has slowly gone down with 300,000 people watching the most recent edition of the contest. There have been some changes to set it apart from Vha Mehlodhivestoile over the last few years. The largest change has been the language rules which means that every song competing in the competition must be in either French or Britonish. There wasn't any voting with the public like there was when the show was on television, with industry professionals and studio audiences picking the winner instead. Another major change was that people couldn't return to the contest once they'd already participated in it - with the contest being a way for new artists to break into the industry. Songs would be created in house with the production team and the industry professionals with the winners receiving a record deal and a paycheque to start their career. All music would be played by a live band or orchestra.

After Vha Mehlodhivestoile 2021 winner, Aaliyah Banques placed 2nd at the WorldVision Song Contest, Britonisea unexpectedly crashed out of the 91st WorldVision Song Contest for no clear reasons and since then Britonisea has struggled to reach the top ten. Britonisea has done relatively well in the Jury portion of the voting, with the country usually in the top 10 during the halftime period (25% of the votes). Britonisea has had misfortune in the televote and BITC officials are unsure as to why. At the previous edition of the contest, BITC took a risk by sending country singer Daniel Ghant to the contest with his song, "Since Day One" which in the end placed 10th with 135 points, the second-lowest score Britonisea has received at the contest since the introduction of the televote. While Britonisea being back in the top ten was a sigh of relief for BITC officials, they noted that Britonisea's results were relatively consistent, with Britonisea's last five entries landing in places 11th, 2nd, 11th, 12th and 10th, but not as good as the results the nation was receiving during the early 70s decade. BITC officials pondered on what to do and decided to get in contact with the production company behind Mehlodhifehstivalen, Bleuskreen Productions, who were happy to bring the contest back to television - under certain conditions.

Bleuskreen Productions and BITC decided to keep the rules that had been in place during the online period, with all participants having to sing in Britonish. A backing track cannot be used, with live instrumentation being used for Mehlodhifehstivalhen 95. The winner will receive what they've won in the past alongside a ticket to the WorldVision Song Contest. The song contest will move from a studio to Arena Aronyk, which hosted the 60th World Hit Festival, using the Arena at half capacity. For the WorldVision Song Contest, the song will be translated into English and a revamped version of the song will be released before the WorldVision Song Contest. Bleuskreen will be in charge of the staging of the song in whatever country we go to, with record label APON Records being in charge of the revamp and will assist the staging of the song at the 95th WorldVision Song Contest alongside partly funding it. Six acts will perform their songs before the studio audience picks their favourite two to head to the superfinal. There, the televiewers will be able to vote for their representative.

Mehlodhifehstivalhen will be broadcast on BITC2 as a pilot episode and depending on the result at the 95th WorldVision Song Contest and people's opinions of the show, they will choose whether to renew it until the 100th edition.

You'll be able to catch Mehlodhifehstivalhen 95 on BITC 2 on Sunday 14th November at 7pm with the show lasting 2 hours.

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
