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.
Mini Surrey-North to return on WV Stage!
She will be making her fifth appearance on a WorldVision stage in the past 12 editions. Mini’s first appearance on the WorldVision stage was in WorldVision 35, in Yttribia where she and her group sang “Like A Serpent.” Despite the song being turned on by Britonish Media, her and her group managed to get Britonisea’s first top 5, top 10 and even, Top 15 place as she placed 5th with 94 points. As the Britonish media applauded the Serpentents, they urged them to perform in Todlichebujoku in WorldVision 36 which has the opposite effect than in Yttribia. Despite being quite known in the WorldVision community, she and her group only managed to grab 23 points placing themselves 31st out of 41 nations. Mini Surrey-North made her third appearance on a WorldVision stage in WorldVision 40’s special edition even though it was expected that Mya Richardson was to perform her song, “Return” which gave Britonisea their 2nd 5th place. The Serpentents managed to gain 21st place with 32 points. Her fourth appearance on a WorldVision stage wasn’t for singing, no. Well, a bit. She hosted the 41st WorldVision Song Contest in Quickenden, Britonisea alongside previous entrant Tess Philipa and Britonish X Factor host Jonathon Willis.She was invited to take part in Vha Mehlodhivestoile where she sung a new song called, “Centre of Attraction” which is a song she wrote talking about her previous experiences in the WorldVision Song Contest and how she felt when she was performing. She felt like the centre of attraction. She was second in her heat with Rigas Jengiz, one of her main contenders. They both qualified to the finals. The international juries favoured Rigas Jengiz giving her 62 points, whereas Mini trailed behind with 59 points. The Britonish public and jury votes gave her 22 points which catapulted her in to lead with 81 points compared to Rigas Jengiz’s 79 points. “It is a very emotional moment for me.” explained Mini, “I thought I wouldn’t represent this country…In WorldVision, anyway. Especially as Zeke and Rigas were real popular contenders in the international votes. I would like to thank Britonisea for pulling me through and the song will go through it’s 3rd revamp.” She said this will be her last appearance on the WorldVision stage though she is sure she will go back to commentating like she did in WorldVision 46.Mini Surrey-North will sing her song “Centre of Attraction” to this tune, Centre of Attraction
BVC have finished one of the biggest international national finals, they should be proud. Mini will perform 14th in the Pre Party in Junterapten later this month.
