Euskirribakondara placed 1st with 129 points, but was disqualified for failure of points – this is a very rear event. Polkopia won with 124 points, which puts the nation in to a clear lead for the most wins. In second place is Estogium, a nation where the previous high score was 4th place. Second place is a massive achievement for them – they gained 117 points.
There was a statement released today based on Vettrera’s participation in WorldVision 48.
Eliza Gentry is coming off of a hot year in music. Her debut visual album, EVACUATION, earned her several wins at the Gemini Awards. The award show, which is separated into two categories (Critical Acclaim vs. Widespread Success), presented her with two awards. Gentry won Best New Artist (Critical), Best Visual Approach (Critical), and she scored a nomination for Acclaimed Album of the Year (Critical). Gentry was also nominated for Breakout Star (the Success equivalent to the Critical BNA category), but would lose. Now, Gentry will represent Vettrera as they hope to cement an official return to Worldvision.
“It’s somewhat a mix of emotions, to tell you what” Gentry says. “Winning these critical awards is validation that I’m doing something right, but getting shafted in the Widespread Success category shows the split that currently exists in the Vettreran music industry. Those that define themselves as part of the “Underground” genre…you know: smaller labels, more creative control, less touring, etc…seem to focus more on critical acclaim. Those that are more mainstream seem to focus on sales, success, and celebrity. It’s hard to be successful in both, and I think those that do become legends in Vettrera. Misty Adams (Vettrera’s first Worldvision artist) definitely comes to mind. To me, Worldvision can open doors, and it can make your brand known.
I’ll be performing ‘Go On…’, a track from my visual album. EVACUATION as an album was about this community of people that weather and try to rebuild after a hurricane devastates the area. The album is accompanied by a short-length movie . “Go On…” is the fourth track on the fourteen track album.
The song isn’t what Vettrera usually enters sonically speaking, and it’s a risk I’m glad everyone was willing to take. It’s not a pop song, it’s not a ballad, it’s something totally different.”
The beautiful Eliza will be performing 14th in the grand final of WorldVision 48.
Also, it seems as if we have had a sneak-peak of the WV49 bid they plan to send after contentions from Electrum for WV49 and Ethane for WV50. They plan to bid to host in Solstice City.
After just 3 editions, we are going back to Talvezout to seek a win in the city of Phoda. Let’s give you some facts you won’t find elsewhere;
- 20 nations voted!
- Of those, 70% voted in favour for Talvezout to win – a wide majority!
- of those, 20% voted in favour for Normandy and Picardy to win
- And, the rest voted for Kasanova Koratica to win!
592, not 600, points were available for grabs! The winner won 38% of those points. While, Normandy and Picardy won 33% of those points and Kasanova Koratica won 29% of the total points…
In the end, Talvezout won with 32 point gap, winning with 226, Normandy and Picardy on 194 and Kasanova Koratica on 172.
One of the contest’s biggest national final has just concluded. Euskal-Doinua1 had 2 semi finals before commencing in to a grand final between six songs. Thanks to Britonisea, Dreamplanet, Ekoz, Ethane, Kalosia, Normandy and Picardy, Saintrabina and Todlichebujoku, Euskirribakondara has their World Hit Festival and WorldVision songs planned out for quite a while.
The song that came 3rd place would represent the nation in WorldVision 48, while the first placed song would represent the nation in WorldVision 49. Samra won the rights to represent Euskirribakondara at WorldVision 49 – the run up to the centennial.
There are whispers about that Electrum might bid again after 11 editions in the wilderness. The last time they bid was in WorldVision 38 with Prescott, and now seeing the economic success generated from hosting WorldVision, the Electrum government might just stump the money to help Network ENN stage the event. After seeing that all the other WorldVision committee members have hosted at least one time, Electrum was now the sole exception and ‘had to get it over and done with’. Prescott is once again rumoured to be the preferred choice for Network ENN for the impending bid, as it is the host city for the XI Winter Olympics, but more importantly, the home town of the one and only Gertrude Pullman…. stay tuned for more details.
If you’re unaware, Mister X hosted in WorldVision 34, Britonisea in WorldVision 41 and Talvezout in WorldVision 44 (but they may also host in ’48) leaving Electrum out. One day, Electrum!!
Although initially wanting to participate in the WorldVision 49 Song Contest, Praciba decided to put their priorities for WorldVision forward on to this contest and this is amid the influx of late confirmations from around the multiverse.
Praciba announced that they will be sending Bjartmar Brothers ft. Carloso þor Niño singing the song “It’s my pleasure” and certainly is it a pleasure to see the winners of ‘the big 4-0’ to return.
Nekoni is also set to enter in the WorldVision Song Contest after missing out last edition. They gained an impressive 5th place in the 46th WorldVision Song Contest.
Interestingly, Falatulu will be sending Jayden Greenwood to sing a song entitled “Born in the FFR” which could ring a few bells. Free Republics last participated in the 41st WorldVision Song Contest in Quickenden. Along with Falatulu, Jeckland, Eura and Barunia (with Cabaret Sav singing “Give me (a little bit)” are set to participate in the contest.
Finally, Vettrera have announced intentions to participate.
Seems like we’re in for an alright contest!

58 nations have announced their intentions of participating in the 48th WorldVision Song Contest, after Tanzeratti announced that they have officially withdrawn. The question is, (now that the host will get picked in a couple of hours and deadlines close), how many nations would get to the contest in either Normandy and Picardy, Talvezout or Kasanova Koratica.
