The Official Logo for the competition;
Semi Final of one of the biggest, most open national finals opened up in the Newbury Park Arena, in Britonisea’s Boschke. Here, eight new faces took to the stage, in a hope to be the next representative for Britonisea in WorldVision 55, which (rumour has it) the nation will bid for.
THE SONGS OF SEMI FINAL ONE!
The first semi finals saw performances from WorldVision 46 Britonish representatives, Leonardo King with Nashta Tants and Bianca. They came 17th in the final back in WorldVision 46 after winning Mehlodhifehstivalhen, Britonisea’s regular national final. If you would like to vote in Mehlodhivestoile 2017, please refer to this thread here, where there is full explanation on how to vote!
The first eight Mehlodhivestoile Songs have been released. Mehlodhivestoile or “Vha Mehlodhivestoile” which means, “The StarSong” is held yearly by BVC, Britonisea, and it is used to pick the Britonish act who will go to the WorldVision Song Contest and the World Hit Festival. Last time, when the first contest was held, Mini Surrey North was picked in the Telm Arena to represent Britonisea in the 47th WorldVision Song Contest in Ekoz. The winning song, “Centre of Attraction” came second in the international vote, and came first in the Britonish vote. With only a few points to spare, the Britonish vote pushed Mini Surrey North to victory. She then went to Ekoz to represent Britonisea and won the competition with 139 points. BVC are hoping to replicate that success in the WorldVision and are hoping that their World Hit Festival act will also live up to expectation.
Here are the eight acts performing in the first semi final.
Performing first is KAYLEY, followed by Gerald Nikssen, Grown Old, Georgina Haitin. Dean Boyst then follows and then RHYTHM&COOL. Etela Tomac, an Izmeduan national, is also hoping to represent Britonisea and she is followed by Tykkard Rubak. According to sites, it is expected that Tykkard is to win the this semi final, and it is also expected that KAYLEY is to go to the Battle Round. But, who is right? We will find out in a month, when nations from around the world are allowed to vote.
Kyvivre is the city in the limelight, as it hosted both the World Hit and WorldVision straight after one another – however, in Normandy and Picardy, there was much more elation than other countries. Quite the unexpected win (According to odds, and even the Normand Broadcaster!) , Normandy and Picardy won 8.3% of the vote. Putting this in to perspective, Mini Surrey North (who won with a 17 point gap in WV47) won 8.5% of the total votes to gain 139 points.
Normandy and Picardy’s Susanne Felludan sang the song, “Free” and won with a small total of 87 points. The contest had its lowest amount of participants in WorldVision’s modern history, yet the quality of entries were much higher than standard competitions. In second place was the host, who (according to odds from the nation) was expecting its third win thanks to the aura of winning in Quickenden WV41 on home turf. Finishing behind is Izmedu, with only a point difference between itself and Britonisea. Ultimaversian nations finished the top 5 as Arioslavia and Estogium gain 73 and 72 points respectively with Estogium winning the tie.
1 Normandy and Picardy 87
2 Britonisea 83
3 Izmedu 82
4 Arioslavia 73
5 Estogium 72
6 Zeganas 72
7 Cheongji 70
8 Electrum 68
9 Mercedini 67
10 Kalosia 66
11 Ethane 64
12 Talvezout 59
13 Kannap 54
14 Gurori 38
15 Mister X 37
16 Darkmania 31
17 Missus X 29
18 Adab 28
19 Electrum Diplomatic Offices 22
Adab is near the bottom once again, and we can only hope that they improve for the next competition that will be held in Mercedini’s Langtree.
The competition comes back to Britonisea, ten editions after the last competition in Britonisea, Quickenden.
We now go to Kyvivre, which is on the West Coast of Britonisea and the opposite side of Quickenden.
Kyvivre also recently hosted one of the biggest World Hit Festival’s in recent time with an impressive stage and graphics. Those who worked with the World Hit Festival are also working with the WorldVision 51 team.
It’s expected that thousands of tourists from abroad will come, especially Estogians, Aurevbushans and Arioslavians, who all border Britonisea.
The contest’s budget is $19 million NSD, which is $6 million less than WorldVision 41. The capacity has also decreased from 34,000 in Quickenden to 29,000. Britonisea’s concept is efficiency and perfection – not big and bold.
It’s expexted that 25 nations will go to Kyvivre including Britonisea. The contest will be hosted by Mehkl Maddox-Ajax Ajax, who won the Mehlodhifehstivalhen and Fedé Callahan who will represent Britonisea in World Hit in Arioslavia
If the bid wins, it could see the first time two cities host the contest. Aurevbush and Britonisea has decided to put in a bid. Initially, it was supposed to be an alone BVC broadcast, but, BVC got BamJam TV on board, and using Fredegate’s venues, the bid is born.
In the bid, they state;
Welcome to Junteräpten, a city in Southern Britonisea and welcome to Fredegate, a city located in Aurebush, right next to Junterapten – you will find out more about the two bidding cities if you keep on reading below.
The logo was designed by Fabbio McAcupline, a known Britonish designer who has an eye for designing covers and logos especially for events like the WorldVision Song Contest. For the logo, he decided, “What is Britonisea about? What is Aurevbush about?” And he thought of the Electroball being a symbol of the two countries and the bond between Aurevbush and Britonisea. The Electroball represents us as we need to power on to become a prominent nation in both it’s region, it’s community and the multiverse. The Electroball is shown floating upon water – a substance that doesn’t quite work well when mixed with electricity… Two things you won’t put together. This symbolises the up and down results we get and in between of all of it, we get a bit of friction on the way.
The number “50” is the main thing in the logo as it celebrates how long the WorldVision Song contest is and regardless of it’s age, it’s still a source of enjoyment where people get together of all ages to be one. It’s highlighted in gold, representing the golden edition. However, one may argue it represents fortune and the wealth of this contest. “Centre Of Attraction” is our slogan for this edition’s show “Centre of Attraction” was decided to be our official slogan for the 50th WorldVision Song Contest because “Centre Of Attraction” is the name of our winning song in WorldVision 47, by Mini Surrey North.This happened in Carnise, Ekoz – another great Ultimaversian city – where she won with 139, a 17 point difference to second place – one of the largest margins we have seen in WorldVision’s modern history – something to be proud of.
Also, they announced a change of the voting segment. This has received some criticism however BVC said that you will receive a break-down version of the votes in th same time period, plus , during the votes, it will give you an inaccurate view of who the winner is – building up the tension as the high votes are added on.
THE GREAT BIDDING RACE FOR BRITONISEA: WorldVision 50 #GBRB2016
- Sponships (within the city and surrounding)
- Culture and Music
- Other Events around the city
- Population enthusiasm
After an hour and a half for each bidding city, here are how the voters voted.
200 votes were available
Surprisingly, Kyvivre – the expected winners of the race – has crashed out of the contest to bid to host the contest, as Quickenden sneaks past Kyvivre in the race to bid to host the great semi-centennial edition of the WorldVision Song Contest. The process of Junterapten and Fredegate being at the top of the board has been a long and drawn out one. In the first round, Junterapten and Fredegate were at the top of the league, with a convincing lead (19 votes lead). However, as the second round came, Junterapten were in trouble as Kyvivre managed to gain more supporters – leaving them 3 votes from the top and only 6 votes behind Quickenden – who grew by 31 votes. Knowing that Quickenden can come out of nowhere, Junterapten and Fredegate had to put a very strong bid in Round 3. Quickenden, who hosted in WorldVision 41 also decided to put a strong bid forward which saw them surpass Kyvivre.
The finals are voted on, The Arena conditions and stage proposals, experience and overall cost. Knowing this, the arena would probably go in favour for Junterapten and Fredegate as The First Direct Arena is a very modern arena, and the Meggatude Indoor Arena is in need for an update, after what the WV41 contest left it in. Stage proposals could go anyway, there are some very artistic people in Junterapten, Fredegate and Quickenden. The experience could go in favour for Quickenden, however, Junterapten has put in to host the NS Archery Open and has raised intention to host if the nation wins the World Hit Festial 26. Quickenden has not only hosted a contest before, but has hosted multiple Mehlodhifehstivalen Finals. The overall cost could go to either, but Quickenden did waste a lot of time and money on postcards in WorldVision 41 – and so, that would be taken in to consideration.
This edition, Estogium will be represented by Ellie Morgent who represented the country in the 24th WorldVision Song Contest in Caen, Normandy and Picardy. Ellie Morgent was 3rd to perform out of 12 nations, and although quite highly expected to win, came 7th with 9 points. Ellie thought that she did very well in Caen, and thought that it was of high standard. She says she aims to do better in the WorldVision Song Contest with her songNot My Speciality which is a dance/electropop song which is intended to get you in your feet! ENTV will be broadcasting the event for Estogium.
He ain’t go us, They ain’t got us
We got us, baby.
Darling, I don’t have wings to transport you to a different sky,
(Not my speciality)
Honey, I don’t have telepathy to enter your mind.
(Not my speciality)
Though I don’t need technology to see,
What I think you mean to me, oh.
Hold my hand and travel with me.
We might not have wings,
Though, experience what the world brings.
Britonisea will be represented by Amedeo Arjan, a well known personality in Britonisea and in Estogium alike. Amedeo Arjan will hope to maintain the country’s win in WorldVision 47 and hopes to bring the country it’s third win. Amedeo Arjan says that this would be an opportunity “like no other” and that he will take “every opportunity within grasps reach.” Amedeo will be singing a song called Parrot-talk which speaks about living with mental disabilities and the parrot is the constant person telling you to do the wrong things in life. The song is also about addiction and how addiction can link to you being hospitalised. BVC will be broadcasting the event for Britonisea.
They’re running for me!
Over the hills, they’re searching hard for me.
To pay my debts to, the one up high.
Corruption in my mind? I don’t believe so.
Though my mind is different from your own.
I feel so tired – Stop the suff’rin’
I feel such pain, pin-prick and enter my veins
