  • [Game] 163rd FSC (Dec. 2020) - Tauranga, New Zealand (HUA)

    Nau mai ki Aotearoa! Koinei ta matou e kii nei he pai te haere ki te 2020.

    Welcome to New Zealand! This is where we say good riddance to 2020!

    After living in an icehotel for a month, it will be nice to thaw out as New Zealand goes into summertime. It's our fifth time here. We can thank Nanda for our visit since he obliterated all comers last month with this song:

    Harper Finn - Dance Away the Days

    Look, I'm not going to sugarcoat it - there's not really a lot to do here. There's an interesting waterfront dog sculpture based on a kid's book that will probably take all of ten seconds to look at, but well, at least the weather is pleasant and COVID isn't as much of a problem here.

    I do recommend the glow-worm tour - I have been on one in the South Island and there's something relaxing about paddling through a cave with glow worms lining the cave like little stars. And the McLaren Falls Park looks pretty if you feel up for a bit of a stroll. It might be a pleasant way to ring out the tumultuous year that has been 2020.


    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be under 10 years old. Eligible entries must have been released after January 1st, 2010.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favorites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.


    01 - 15/12 | RESERVE & PRESENT: Present your entry or just reserve your country. Last month's top 5 get their choice from last month reserved, so nobody may choose these countries until they let them go:

    03 Ukraine (franklex)
    04 Sweden (cheapthrills)
    05 Finland (KindOf)

    16/12 | PRESENT: Pick any country that hasn't been presented yet and present your entry (ALL reservations are now expired). A maximum of 30 confirmed entries in total will be accepted.

    17 - 28/12 | VOTE! Whoever fails to vote during this period will be subject to the penalties described under Late Vote and Very Late Vote

    29/12 | Late Vote: Whoever votes on this date will receive a 10 points penalty.

    30/12 | Very Late Vote: Whoever votes on this date will receive a 15 points penalty. Whoever fails to vote by this date (Tauranga time ) will be disqualified.

                                              Yeah it is. Ireland is fine, Northern Ireland is a no-no.

                                                  Released 2020

                                                  Lyrics Translation:

                                                  A couple of his latest singles have that 80's style, a cool way to finish out 2020, this could go well with at least two other big songs of the year... (although searching if it samples anything, I think it just generally comes from the same style). ;)
