Hola a todos!
Welcome to the 129th Forum Song Contest!



Last month, HC55555 won for the first time ever with this song:

Javiera Mena - Espada

This was only the 2nd win for Chile, a country that seems to have a lot of potential in this contest.
Let's check out our host city, Valparaíso!

RULES


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 10 years old at the most. For 2018, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2007.
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 favourites 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.

New Zealand

Also there should be a quota for how many times someone is allowed the USA in a year and they should only be allowed exceed it if they finish Top 5! Also Thriller hogs the UK :lol:

Rule #15 : A person can't choose the same country more than 2 times in a row, even if he made a Top 5 with his previous entry. This rule is valid until the 12th day of the month.

What do you think?

I strongly disagree with such a rule and tbh, I don't see the point of not allowing someone to take Croatia or Ukraine for three times in a row.

Also, having a country reserved after ending up being Top 5 the pregious month, is like being awarded somehow.

Maybe...there's the possibility to install such a rule for very popular countries such as the US and the UK and maybe Australia but when ir comes to the rest, the simply don't need such a rule at all and I think it eould be super unfair and not smart to neglect someone being really into Croatian or Polish music to not take those countries several times.

^I agree. It needs to just be the high demand countries as mentioned but there definitely needs to be a limit as there’s only 12 contests per year
