The Eurovision Times KnockOut 2014 – “TEKO 2014“. You will be able to vote for your favourite in a knockout format (similar to the World Cup). Firstly there will be 13 heats. The act with the most votes in that heat qualifies directly for the 2nd round. 9 songs (the top 9 countries who finish 2nd and had the highest percentage of votes) will get a second chance.

In the 2nd round the remaining 2014 entries will compete in duels, through to quarter-finals and semi-finals until we will have 2 songs in the big final. Here you can see how this game works. Please check the front page of this blog for up-to-date information.
