ETSC

Eurovision Times Song Contest

Each summer, a good number of regular readers stay around for different reasons (they don’t get breaks from work or don’t go on holidays…) but there aren’t much news to keep us going. So the last few years we introduced all sort of games. The Eurovision Times Awards (Fridas) and the Douze Points Trivia Quiz kept us going in 2013 and Fridas are here to stay. In 2014, a lot of our friends asked for a fake Eurovision where each one of us would send songs and get to vote. And that was it: the Eurovision Times Song Contest, from then on known as ETSC.

There are two editions per Summer, a July one and an August one. We open a country selection first phase, when our readers get to pick a country to play with. Then they can send their song following certain few rules (the song has to have a connection to the country or it can’t be too old…) and it has to be available online for others to view. I then create postcards and there is a big reveal of all entries. From then on, everyone can vote esc-style for about a week until I reveal all votes and we have our Summer hit!

You can browse through all articles concerning the ETSC here.

Here’s the contest history so far (click on the picture of all singers to be redirected to the songs and on the scoreboard to get all details on the results).

  1. 35th is the ETSC version of 2nd place in ESC :P

  2. Great job, Morgan! :)

    P.S. – 9th, 30th and 9th… 30th will most probably happen again! LOL

  3. Great job Morgan ! I got updated on ETSC 1, which I had almost no idea how it went in terms of results !

    I made a good debut with the 7th place I think :-)

  4. So from 19th to 11th to 8th. I see a pattern.

  5. I see a pattern too! From 2nd to 8th and then to 16th. I am aiming at #32 next time !:P

  6. I am surprised that Georgia ranked so low in ETSC 3… it is a lovely song I think, and i love the male voice

  7. The voting table of ETSC 2 is gone :(

  8. now featuring etsc 5 full results!
