Hiiiiiiiiiiiii
Welcome to the 130thForum Song Contest!



Last month, Undercover took the crown home with this song:

Hatchie - Sure

Unfortunately, I forgot my laptop back home, so I can't tell for sure whether this is the 25th or 98th time Australia has won (O, Virgostar, where art thou?!)
Let's check out our host city, Wollongong!

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.

It would be too egoistic to keep Australia for the third month in a row (though I would like to :)).

Thus Australia is free. (Thriller, your chance) :wink:

I'll try to go with Norway.

no, sorry! I needed to use it to express my frustration with my own luck that I get always late. But my frustration only lasts some days until I listen to the songs and enjoy the game. It is just a frustration cycle.

I am perfectbly fine with the members taking the countries, I just wanted a country to share a song.

I always have an argentinian song in the list as it is an easy target, although HC5555 now will want it too :D

Okay :wink: I think I remember you mentioning a few times before that you wanted to snatch the US, so if you change your mind and want to have the US, you can take it :D

I’ve had a song in mind since November if you want to give US to me flopho (and if leomedar doesn’t want it of course). :)

But if you’re keeping it, I’ll take DENMARK for now.
