It is time for our “Premath” contest! Every year we share our views on the acts from The Eurovision Song Contest! The idea is simple, we vote before rehearsals and after the contest and then compare the two to check the differences!
We’ve got plenty of systems to discuss songs as the dull season (before rehearsals kick in) keeps us langering: TEKO for instance, but wee really didn’t have a platform to share our combined personal views on the matter, and now we do, thanks to our “Premath/Aftermath” contest!
Gregor, one of our regular readers is here yet again to bring you this amazing experience, that basically is a pre-chart for all us ESC fans in the ET community and is based on the contest’s infamous 1-8, 10 & 12 system. This poll combines the ranking of all the participating users’ top 10 songs in this year’s contest and will be revealed in a dramatic finish from the country that got the least amount of votes to the winner of this year’s Premath. This is the first part of two polls that will be held this season. The second one being the ET Aftermath, which will resume later this year after Eurovision has been held!
Premath isn’t really a word, but its meaning is obvious in comparison to the upcoming ET Aftermath. There are a lot of pre rankings and tops out there and for us here on ET the closest thing we have to that is TEKO. However all of us usually have a top 10 of our favorite acts every season, but that top 10 usually gets unjustified in the knockout rounds and the random draw of TEKO. So as an alternative the ET Premath was born, where everyone who wants to participate can share their views of the ESC season and together create an official ET pre-chart. It will then be very interesting to compare the Pre-/Aftermath rankings to see which act failed/succeeded according to our views.
Now it’s all up to you how you wanna rank your top 10 songs, but with many live performances still at an early stage, we really have almost no idea of how it’s gonna sound or look on the ESC stage atm. So it would be best to try and only rate the studio versions of the songs as it also creates a slight difference from the ET Aftermath, where everything from the song to the live performance in the contest is ranked. Remember this is not a criteria, just a reminder, cause in the end it’s your personal top 10 that counts!
The rules are simple: Send your personal top 10 songs from the ESC 2021 (from 1-8, 10, 12) and your alias to this email-address: email@example.com
