TETAW 2014 final opens


logoIn the heat of April, before the contest actually takes place, Marc Panozzo’s “The Eurovision That Almost Was…” has resumed this year for its 2014 editions. The first semifinal and the second semifinal have ended, vote for the final now!

Before the contest actually takes place, it’s time for the Internet to go crazy with games about the contest or the national finals. At the Eurovision Times, we have the Knockout game already taking place and currently going on. We would like to present you with another one.

The game is hosted by Marc Panozzo, our friend and a regular member here. He created in 2013 the The Eurovision That Almost Was… (TETAW) and the game opens this year for a second edition. Besides the internally selected songs, each country sends its national final runner-up to see what results we could expect from that Eurovision (that almost was but did not happen in the end). Last week the first semifinal results were revealed. Here are the results of the second semifinal:

  1. I am surprised to see Georgia in. I am glad I contributed one of those points for Yasmina though :)

    • And done ! I also noticed that if I remember correctly I contributed almost one 3rd of the points Ireland got haha :)

  2. Thanks Morgan, will be interesting to see who wins

  3. Not bad at all. A Eurovision final like this would have been one of the best in history with a very strong average rate.

    I did a 2013 German jury and changed a few ranking places for the final. (a)

  4. Finally got to vote in this, after being denied in both semis. :(

    I forgot how much I loved Vaida’s song though. I was so upset when the juries took the win from her to give it to the celebrities.

  5. My votes are in.

  6. 1)Common Linnets
    2)Mikko Pohjola
    3)Linnea Dale
    4)Dilara Kazimova
    5)Donatan & Cleo
    6)De Bee
    7)Sergej Cetkovic
    8)Ace Wilder
    9)Molly
    10)Aram mp3
    11)Conchita
    12)Viktoriya Petrik
    13)Vaida
    14)Fool Moon
    ………………..
    20)Mei Finegold
    21)Martakis
    22)Brequette
    23)The Shin and Mariko
    24)Unheilig
    25)Twin Twin
    26)Muff

  7. I’m a little confused – why are the big five not included? I’d have loved to vote for Germany or Spain.

  8. Awesome job, Marc and Morgan. *claps* :) My votes:
    12 points – Dons
    10 – The Common Linnets
    8 – Donatan & Cleo
    7 – Mikko Pohjola
    6 – Molly
    5 – Ace Wilder
    4 – Linnea Dale
    3 – Dilara Kazimova
    2 – Michael Rune & Natascha Bessez (shoot me, why don’t you? :P )
    1 – Sigga (I’m not typing that)

    Good luck!

    • Hey hang on, you just cast two sets of votes somehow, LOL

      Which set do you want to keep?

      • How have I submitted two? I’ll keep this one w/Dons on top. :)

        • You sent these votes a while back, or at least someone named “Nicholas Provenghi” did… *creepy music plays*

          12 – Latvia
          10 – Netherlands
          8 – Poland
          7 – UK
          6 – Finland
          5 – Sweden
          4 – Denmark
          3 – Norway
          2 – Armenia
          1 – Azerbaijan

          Should I ignore these and keep the set you posted here?

          • Yeah use the set I posted.

            I think I know what those votes you posted are. It probably just fired off before I was done with the actual form, since it’s correct down to five points. :P Also, Marc, why would I put Armenia in my top ten here when I have it 31st in the whole contest? LOL. ;)

            • Yes I thought that was odd, LOL

              A clear winner is emerging in the poll…

            • Good. :P

              Ooh. I assume that it’s so totally Israel, right? Or Slovenia, if that other juggernaut somehow fails. ;) In all seriousness, I’m quite excited about this. And I have a few serious predictions too. :)
