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.

Have we ever had a collaboration between a solo artist and a group/band representing the country of origin of the solo artist? (which sort of breaks Rule #3)
I'll do some searching, but if anyone remembers any such case off their head, I'll be grateful.

I think the number of people does count?
When I chose Akcent to represent Azerbaijan with "Push" it was only eligible because Akcent is a one guy only project now and Amira (one person again) was from Azerbaijan.
I can't think of any violation to that rule, tbh

Yes, the number should count, I agree, but I thought maybe there's been a precedent where the opposite has been accepted - because that would sooo much help me present a certain song :lol:
Anyway, I can't find any such case either. Oh well, there's always next month.

Addictive Eurodance anthem; my first entry in English this year; about to become a hit in Poland/Ukraine at the moment, I hope you'll like it. One outfit might be NSFW. Absolutely love the beat and its groove :D
