Happy New Year! Head Uut Aastat!

Welcome to the 140th FSC and the first FSC of 2019!



2018 capped off a great FSC year for Heppolo who brings us to Estonia for the first time with:

IIRIS - Stranger


We sit right on the Baltic here in Talinn, where you can enjoy the sites if you are willing to brave the cool air.

As it's cool here, be sure to bring warm clothes! Those people dancing in the last picture should really bundle up...

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 2019, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2008.
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.

Quick question US top 40 means the Billboard hot 100 chart only right, it’s still ok if it charts higher in a niche chart also (such as billboard dance, adult alternative etc)? :)
