RESULTS

Here are the results of the first edition of the Univision Song Contest! I will spread the results out over a few posts. 7 songs were unlucky enough to not get any points from any voters. Since they did not get any points, the tiebreaking rule says that they have all gotten 22nd place. Luckily, no one has not gotten any points, so do not worry if you see most of your songs in this list. Good luck to all and let the results begin!



NUL POINTS (0 POINTS) GO TO....














TUTONO | SONG #6
AWOLNATION - Sail



TUTONO | SONG #9

These next songs to be eliminated get points. So, next up we'll get the songs that have placed 21st to 16th! Good luck to all!





TIED FOR 20TH PLACE WITH 3 POINTS EACH ARE....









BLAIST BLALAND | SONG #1
Jn Hallur - Red Glowing Dust
3 points

AND

BLAIST BLALAND | SONG #6

4 points




TIED FOR 17TH PLACE WITH 6 POINTS EACH ARE....

AND


SHMUPLAND | SONG #24
Gramatik - Cirkus
6 points



16TH PLACE WITH 6 POINTS GOES TO......












ETHANTHOVA | SONG #21
Renard - NAMx
6 points
Note: it's worth noting the tiebreaking rule here. Although Renard got 6 points, he got 3 points from 2 people rather than the songs above which got 6 points from 1 person each. In a tie situation like this, the number of voters is the biggest influence. We'll see this again as we go further into the results.



Congratulations on scoring some points! However, we haven't found our winner yet....

Winner of the first Univision Song Contest with a total of 66 points! We are returning to Aahrus again for the second edition!



Better luck next time Tyr and Ethanthova, who came second with 39 points.


About Ani Lorak:
She was born on 27 September 1978 in Kitsman, Ukraine (Ukrainian SSR). She began her musical career in 1996, when she won a New York based musical competition. After winning "Ukrainian Discovery of the Year" at an Ukrainian song festival in 1997, she went on to write a few singles early in the new millennium. After spending a few years as a restaurant owner with her fiance she returned onto the music scene. In 2008 she was internally selected to represent Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. She is currently one of the most influential women in Ukraine.

About Shady Lady:
Shady Lady was written by Karen Kavaleryan, the same person who wrote 8th place Apricot Stone in this contest, and was composed by Philipp Kirkorov. Once Ani Lorak was selected to represent Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, a national final was held where songs were submitted to be sung by Ani Lorak. After winning the national final by quite a bit, the song and Ani Lorak was sent to Belgrade for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest. It participated in the second semi-final, winning the show that night and securing a place in the final. It went onto coming 2nd place in the grand final, following Russia's entry. It scored 230 points that night, remaining one of the highest scoring second place finishers in the history of the contest as well as one of the highest scored Ukrainian entries.

Jury members have the same power as everyone else. :P


why does it have so many more points than #2

Best uptempo song I guess? There weren't many in the field. A lot of slower instrumental songs that fell behind.

I have been incredibly busy these last few weeks, so this didn't really go as I had planned. So here are a few changes I want to implement for the next edition, in December I will have much more time.

Proposals for the next edition:
- An actual synchtube live streaming
- Better graphics and a real scoreboard, with the possibility of Eurovision style voting rather than the way we did it today
- Allowing multiple countries or multiple entries, for people who only have one country
- A Eurovision style participation map
- Somehow make use of flags (in graphics I guess)
- Not taking 2 weeks to go through everything, I'd prefer to do it over a period of 2 weekends
- Jury voting changes
- Regular voting changes as well as a change to the points

I would hope if someone other than you wins, they are allowed some freedom over hosting, maybe not rules (unless they pass them by your broadcasting union or whatever :P), unless they are incapable of doing some specific part for whatever reason or they are not up to par (like graphics).

I would hope if someone other than you wins, they are allowed some freedom over hosting, maybe not rules (unless they pass them by your broadcasting union or whatever :P).

For now I only feel comfortable with the host doing graphics. :P This is pretty much the same with Eurovision as it is now, the hosts also get to do the stadium, however here it's obviously much easier to just post a picture of a stadium. I will listen to rule change suggestions, however I will listen to anyone anyways. :P

As far as my thoughts goes:

Aahrus Full Ranking
Songs I like and wanted to vote for: 20 16 8 4 28 22 3
Songs I didn't like and wouldn't want to vote for: 12 27 24 26 6 21 5 2 15 10 9 23 25 1 19 17 7 14

#20 - Schweine - I love it tbh, very nice song with a different flavour to it
#16 - Bad Apple - as far as songs goes, this was probably my favourite, however once swonx decided to go with an English cover instead of the Japanese version he originally sent, it lost some of its ethnic flair
#8 - Pompeii - very nice song with something about it that I like, not sure what :P
#4 - Ride - I do enjoy a good uptempo metal song every now and then
#28 - Magna Epicuri Usu No -  pity points for the best original composition ever!
#22 - - quite enjoy it for no apparent reason :P
#3 - Acid Wolfpack - the only good instrumental song submitted I think

There were too many slower instrumental songs I think. While it was only about 7 songs, it did take about a quarter of the watching time. Nothing against that, I just think it would have been more exciting. That said, the lack of excitement probably led to my victory.

Judgement on my own songs:
#13 - Lejla - 10th is far from a bad place. I am totally happy with this result. I expected it to do better than Shady Lady and Apricot Stone, all this means is I won't send another ethnic ballad like this. :P The song itself came 3rd in Eurovision 2006.
#11 - Apricot Stone - Pretty impressed with this. I thought it would be near last place. 8th place is only one place off of what it got in Eurovision 2010, where it came 7th. The surprise success of this means I will return with a much stronger ethnic pop song next time. I'd still sooner vote for Ride than this tbh, it's my least favourite from the songs I submitted.
#18 - Shady Lady - The first votes came in and Ride was actually winning by a decent margin, with Shady Lady a close second. I couldn't even dream of this winning, especially as spectacularly as this.  I figured it would get some love, it's pretty far from a bad song. However it fits a lot of the definitions of slutpop. I believe this won only because of no other alternative. Bad Apple is an alternative, but it was much more polarizing than Shady Lady. You either liked it or hated it, whereas Shady Lady is much more bubblegum and open to everyone. Didn't expect the dance genre to secure 2 out of the top 3 with metal taking second. Once I realized that people stopped voting for Ride and my margin got bigger I was shocked. Still can't believe this did better than 5th place. With a success like this, dance music is probably done getting good results. In contests like these it's hard to get the same winning song year after year.

Should be an exciting next edition with people having an idea of what to send and what to do. Without Electronik Supersonik, the difference between usf and the juries won't be big, or as big as this year. Should make things much more competitive.

Anyways, thanks to everyone for making this Univision quite a bit of fun! It'll be back in December pending nothing happens.

Wyverncliff is quite surprised about decent success in this contest. Congratulations to Aahrus for the best Univision song contest to date and hopes that next yeah Wyverncliff can take the contest home to Weatrea.
I would like to thank Glukoza, Bastille and Nelly for participating in this contest and representing our country.
More congratulations are in order to Ethanova who had Wyverncliff's personal favorite song.
And of course congratulations should always be given to the winner-nice job Aahrus.

Wyverncliff hopes to not get last next year.
