            Yes, unfortunately since Thriller didn't vote this month, he is disqualified for next month. The UK was a strong contender this month. I hesitate to say it would have won since we are missing Thriller's vote and it might have been the difference. I believe thirteen people voted for the UK.

            As a result, it is going to take me some time to go back through and get everyone's 11th place votes.

              OK. Thank you!
              I also voted for the UK this month; magnificent track.
              Would be a disaster and a shame if the number one song got disqualified!

                I'll just say this was much, much, much more exciting on the back end where the outcome wasn't determined until the final vote came in, and with the UK still in it. Before that final vote came in, the UK was tied for first. In fact, only four points separated the top four.

                Before the results had to be rejiggered to exclude the UK, the final results would have had seven points separating the top four.

                The UK would have finished in the top five, but not at #1 regardless.

                Anyhow, here are the...

                    The winner is fine, in my opinion.

                      Good winner however I think that including Sandra was a bit unfair as Maria Magdalena was such a monster hit that practically everyone knows it even if it didn't score chart success in the US/UK.

                          It sounded as if you knew all the remaining 19 songs before.

                            It would have been much better winning song though :p

                              i could say the same

                              i have never understand the appeal of Sandra
                              neither her's solo pop stuff nor in that overrated pretentious project called Enigma

                                I guess, there was that particular moment in time when Enigma hopped on this massive wave on new age faux-globalism trend. Sandra sounded clout chasing as well in the 80s, not quite "out there" like Sabrina though, too middle of the road for me

                                  Ladytron's one barely met the requirements (UK#42) for the contest only to get DQed later due to Thriller's missing the deadline.

                                    South Africa flopped, but getting the 12 points from jio and maroon made up for it massively. I'm so glad you two enjoyed it! I was looking for a song from Africa and kept returning to that one.

                                    So a little more back-end info in the spoiler:

                                      Blasphemy!! Enigma is one of the nineties' best acts!

                                          It was Italy! And, no, nobody can possibly know or know about 20 retro songs.
                                          Italy is a key market for me so not being aware of such a (in my opinion) huge song is a bit criminal and a real lacking of knowledge from my part.

                                                I consider "Maria Magdalena" the best song but, I did not vote for it due to the fact that it is very well-known. It was a legitimate entry but it would feel as if "Papa Don't Preach" won FSC had it won. Other than that, I knew another 3-4 songs so this month was not great in terms of discovery for me.

                                                Glad my song did relatively well, I discovered it while watching Netflix' "The Woods" (great Polish mini-series btw, I recommend it) and it just struck me as a potential FSC entry. Thanks for all the votes, see ya next month (maybe)

                                                  I indeed had to switch countries because I didn't know Brainburg is from Italy either at first XD

                                                  Well, it was exciting! I never felt my entry was able to move up to the first position, because it was the runner-up throughout the voting, but I didn't lose hope either. But the Swiss entry was very strong and a deserved winner indeed! Congratulations for such that good song. My fav entry was Nanda's though. Wonderful song!!

                                                  • This doesn't seem right, but it doesn't look like Zurich has ever hosted? I see contests held in Bern, Basel, Lausanne, Lucerne, and Geneva. If that's true, that's where it will be, unless Mainshow has an alternate preference.

                                                    And congratulations to you!
