A lot of relatively well-known acts, singers, bands and there are some cases of me preferring other songs of the artists' catalogue to those in the contest.

Ukraine is in fact a version of an old traditional song and thus ineligible.

If you are unsure about whether a song you plan to enter is ineligible, feel free to PM me about it in advance.

The linked YouTube video for Spain is blocked in my country (Sweden). Here's a working alternative link to the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzDEAc4uvmY

Still assessing. Three songs are set but not ranked.
What a mixed bag this month. Thought it would be huge but it turns out to be quite sobering in the end.
Will do my best to vote tonight!

Bad month :(

Still, my favourite song is SUPERB. One of the best song I've ever heard here in more than 9 years.

Yeah! :wink: Bring back that rule! :D
(For the most part these songs are trend-chasing copy-cat attempts to mimic some Anglospheric [is this even a word] sound and the command of English is sometimes more than scary and embarrassing)

Yes, you did, thanks.

3 songs are beginning to stand out, because till now the top was changing with every installment. 7 votes to come and the song with the least points can still win - and it doesn't even need to be awarded any 12s to achieve this. :o

Maybe it's appropriate to point out that the deadline is in 18 hours from now!
