    Continuing with the South American theme this night, the Organizing Committee is proud to finally unveil the logo for the Totallympics Annual International Contest 2018. The main figure for this logo, the arara-vermelha (Red-and-green macaw) is a large species widespread in the forests and woodlands of northern and central South America, especially in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina. However - in common with other macaws - there has been a decline in its numbers due to habitat loss and illegal capture. With the use of its image here at the logo, we hope to raise awareness to this fact, but also celebrate its beauty. In the logo, the bird is combined with musical waves (to bring a music element) that also resembles the Sugarloaf Mountain in Rio. Ladies and gentleman, the official logo of TISC 2018:

    That is the level of consistency I strive for, as I am as inconsistent as most people claim they are However, I do want to thank @vinipereira for this amazing contest and @OlympicIRL and @dcro for lending a hand in all of this. Now it's a bit cliche at this point for the next host to say that it's tough to follow the previous host, but it's a tough act to follow for sure. And to my teammates @Bohemia @FC Mezhgorye @Belle for, well, being awesome teammates And to the countries that contributed to the 3rd place run: 12 -- @MHSN @Finnator123 @Janakis 11 -- @catgamer @Henry_Leon @SteveParker @Pablita @Gianlu33 @IoNuTzZ 10 -- @Bohemia @amen09 @Glen 9 -- @Dolby @intoronto 8 -- @Argenis Gonzalez @Skijumpingmaster @heywoodu 7 -- @rybak 6 -- none lol 5 -- none lol 4 -- @bestmen @kungshamra71 3 -- none lol 2 -- @konig @FC Mezhgorye 1 -- @DaniSRB @dareza Also congrats to the fellow medallists @Henry_Leon @SteveParker @Pablita @Gianlu33 and @Skijumpingmaster And, once again, I welcome you all to the United States this fall (or spring for you southern hemisphere people) for the 6th Totallympics Open International Song Contest (and 11th overall)

    Now, we have a special announcement. Twice a year, users from around the world reunite here in Totallympics in a big celebration of the universal language of music - hence our official motto "Music connects the world". From Algeria to Italy, and Kazakhstan to Venezuela, more than 50 nations have participated at least one time throughout the 10 editions of the contests, with countries representing Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and the Americas. We take this opportunity to present the official Totallympics Contests logo: the globe represents the global nature of the contest - while the headphones emphasize that the contest revolves around music. Now we present the logo, a collective effort between @dcro, @OlympicIRL and @vinipereira.

    Now, is finally time to say goodbye to the Totallympics Annual International Song Contest 2018. It was a huge honour to host this contest and we thank all the people that made this such a fantastic edition! As we celebrate many artists around the world, sometimes we may forget that we have an artist among ourselves, so to close this evening, we've invited our very own @Werloc, also known as international artist Gebrasy. Saying goodbye to Brazil 2018, nothing better than a song in portuguese. The lithuanian will perform the beautiful "Amar Pelos Dois", of Salvador Sobral! After this amazing performance and the TISC flame being extinguished, we officially close the Totallympics Annual International Song Contest 2018!

    The Antarctic delegation visited Copacabana beach today on the latest leg of their tour. Many traveling Antarctic fans descended on the Copacabana today also. Here is just a quick selection of some of pics that were captured showing them enjoying the beach. Someone will surely be jealous.....

Een belangrijke mededeling: Nederland heeft de bewuste keuze gemaakt om uit het Comité te stappen. Binnenkort zal meer informatie naar buiten komen over het handelen binnen deze exclusieve club, die meer te vergelijken is met een cult, en waar Nederland geen deel meer van uit wenst te maken. Aan de leden van het Comité: misschien kom je erachter dat het bankaccount leeg is, net als de parkeerplaats. Ik heb alles meegenomen. Alle anderen wensen we een fijne ochtend, middag, avond en nacht en tot de volgende keer! That's it for the Dutch votes. We're closing with an important note: the Netherlands has made the conscious choice to leave the Committee. Soon we will release more information about the dealings inside this exclusive club, which is better comparable with nothing less than a cult, and of which the Netherlands did not want to be any part any longer. To the Committee members: you may find the bank account to be empty, as well as the parking lot. I took it.To all others, we wish you a wonderful morning, afternoon, evening and night and we'll see you next time!

    Thanks for the amazing gala event @vinipereira. It was a huge amount of fun and a great addition to our Jubilee celebrations To conclude the gathering, I would like to bring you all back to our roots and take a look back at where it all began..... Going Back To The Start - Revisiting our Roots "And Finally....... Sweden 12 points....." It is hard to believe that all those years have past since TISC came into our lives. No one could have predicted, not I at least, that 10 editions in and we would still be going strong - stronger than ever in fact! The history of TISC goes all the way back to 2012 when Totallympics staged a once-off topic devoted to finding the "Best Eurovision Song of All-Time". That thread began on September 21st, 2012 and, in truth, this is the date the TISC was born. It was a truly colossal competition - 5 preliminary round heats featuring 7 decades-worth of Eurovision hits, and that was only just the aperitif. A further 4 semi-finals were dished up before the main course arrived - a Grand Final in the spring of 2013 which would eventually see Abba’s Waterloo see out victory in a final vote thriller. The result would not be clear until the very last mark was cast. It was a treat to savour. A drama, the likes of which we would never see again on our little forum at the corner of the world-wide-web. A drunken fool could have told you that much! Such drama, a fitting culmination of months of competition and a community spirit burned so bright that day, lighting a fire inside the hearts of Totallympians. There was now an appetite that needed feeding, and what was to follow on our very fine menu is what we have now come to know as The Totallympics International Song Contest. TISC - that sweet dessert that we have been dining on since 2013. And what a greedy lot we are. Long may it continue! TISC I - TISC Open 2013 (Ireland) Totallympics (Open) International Song Contest 2013 Grand Final: Saturday November 9th, 2013 Venue: The O2, Dublin, Ireland Argentina (LDOG) Azerbaijan (Ilqar, AndyAnar) Brazil (vinipereira, titicow) Bulgaria (batbobi) Canada (Canada4thewin, olympicsfan97, juddy96, Intoronto) Croatia (crovitlaci, Deuce) Czech Republic (stepansevs) Denmark (Agger) Egypt (Dermatologist, thepharoah) France (Bohemia) Germany (catgamer) Greece (Janakis) Guyana (PrivateKnoll18) India (gvaisakh, gubchandrolai, dolby) Ireland (OlympicIRL) Italy (Henry.Leon, SteveParker, leli, Pablita) Kazakhstan (Ruslan) Latvia (vitaamiins) Lebanon (Roy) Lithuania (Werloc) Malta (Glen) Mexico (mrv86) Morocco (Amal) Poland (rybak, mati, mateusz00142, Adriano) Romania (vlad, yellowviper2001) Russia (vovanA) Serbia (pčelica, dareza, earth, smrča) Slovakia (JanMolnar) Slovenia (2007, mihamiha) Sweden (fabwin, Mango) Turkey (Euphoria) Ukraine (zhenya) United Kingdom (10ftTITAN, uk12points) United States (dezbee2008) Vietnam (DoPhuQuy) Totallympics Song Contest 2013 Grand Final Scoreboard OFFICIAL RANKINGS Lebanon 0 Latvia 32 Brazil 95 Sweden 211 Poland 51 Russia 38 Czech Republic 51 Vietnam 119 Croatia 55 Argentina 19 India 46 Serbia 73 Greece 20 Kazakhstan 69 Egypt 56 Slovenia 36 Lithuania 53 Denmark 91 United States 150 Guyana 167 Mexico 128 Italy 206 United Kingdom 178 Turkey 28 Canada 150 Romania 40 Morocco 65 Slovakia 18 France 89 Azerbaijan 19 Germany 92 Ireland 111 Malta 77 Ukraine 30 Bulgaria 11 Current Top 5 Positions: 1 SWEDEN 211 2 ITALY 206 3 UNITED KINGDOM 178 4 GUYANA 167 5 CANADA 150 On the 23rd September 2013, the very first thread for the inaugural TISC Contest was opened on Totallympics. A tentative toe was dipped in to test out the water. Sure, the previous "Best Eurovision Song of All-Time" topic proved a success, but would anyone really want to come onboard for this one? Those were the thoughts going through the minds of the organiser at this premature stage of our TISC journey. We did not have too wait too long however for the very first post in response to the new thread to come in.... "Approved", it said. And that was that. TISC was approved!! One single word from Henry.Leon to set minds at rest and to set TISC on its fruitful journey. Approved! The exact format of the contest was not known at that stage and as users registered for this exciting new project, there were many questions about how it would take shape: - If not enough countries take part, maybe we can have 2 songs per country? - Does the song have to be from the current year? - Does the song have to contain lyrics? - Does the video have to be a live performance? - Does the song have to be performed by the original artist? - Does the song have to be in the national language? After almost 1 month of getting the idea off the ground, 35 Nations had chosen their songs and artists with which they would compete with at TISC. However, after the voting window had come and gone, one nation had still failed to cast their votes. Nothing had been heard from the National Jury of Lebanon since they registered and submitted their entry. Despite multiple attempts to reach out to the Lebanese jury member, Roy, sadly Lebanon had ceased to fulfil their role and there was no choice but to exclude them from the contest. However, in what proved to be the only such instance to date, it was decided Lebanon could remain on the scoreboard as a "ghost entry" in faded out font. Any votes they had originally received would also show in faded out font, but would not count in the rankings. And so we were left with our 34 pioneers: Argentina Azerbaijan Brazil Bulgaria Canada Croatia Czech Republic Denmark Egypt France Germany Greece Guyana India Ireland Italy Kazakhstan Latvia Lithuania Malta Mexico Morocco Poland Romania Russia Serbia Slovakia Slovenia Sweden Turkey Ukraine United Kingdom United States Vietnam Little did we know that this would be the first and only time (to date) that Ukraine and Vietnam would participate. Nine editions later and of that pioneering list, 17 proud warriors still hold the distinguished achievement of being a TISC "ever-present". Take a bow Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, Mexico, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and the United States! By virtue of random draw, it was decided that Latvia would have the honour of delivering the first ever set of votes at TISC. The first 12 points at TISC would go to France for their entry "Fleur de Saison" by Emilie Simon. United States took over pole position after 4 rounds of voting had passed. Their entry "Feelin' Good" by the late Christina Grimmie was proving early on to be a big hit amongst the national juries. During the early stages, one could not have foreseen the twisting road that lay ahead. Abiding memories of that contest are of three titans battling it out at the top, two of which had made early and apparently decisive bids to claim the inaugural TISC title. The third, waiting in the wings throughout, unflinching, biding their time, happy to let others set the pace, all the while keeping them within sight. Three titans, each with different shares in the drama that would unfold. Let us then introduce the first contender, Italy: "Con Te Partiro" - Andrea Bocelli Three consecutive sets of 12 points sent Italy racing out to an early lead by the time jury number 6 had finished delivering their votes. Another 11 points from the next jury from Slovenia and soon Italy had established a 22-point cushion at the top of the leaderboard. Scoring heavily, it looked as though Andrea Bocelli would not be stopped on his onward march to TISC glory. However, the second of our titans had other plans and the battle-lines were well and truly drawn. Enter the United Kingdom.... Anything you can do..... The United Kingdom were being represented by John Lennon with his powerful entry "Imagine". Having endured a slow but steady start to the contest, the United Kingdom were stirred into life and three consecutive sets of 12 points of their own saw them establish themselves as the one to catch at the head of the standings. By the end of the second of three voting sessions, the United Kingdom had opened up a healthy 30-point advantage over their nearest rivals, the healthiest advantage of the day. And with just 11 more juries left to cast votes in the evening session, many juries were already toasting the United Kingdom and John Lennon on their success. However, what was to follow in the evening session was nothing short of astonishing. "Alfred Hitchcock could not write such drama", one jury member from Egypt exclaimed. But, for the United Kingdom, it was a tale more apt for a Stephen King classic.... a horror in the making. All the while, silently biding their time, the third big player was about to make their move and time their killer punch to perfection. Here is how the scoreboard looked going into the final session...... Totallympics Song Contest 2013 Grand Final Scoreboard Juries Voted So Far 23/34 GREECE VOTING Lebanon 0 Latvia 32 Brazil 60 Sweden 135 Poland 28 Russia 23 Czech Republic 28 Vietnam 80 Croatia 52 Argentina 13 India 30 Serbia 65 Greece 17 Kazakhstan 38 Egypt 34 Slovenia 11 Lithuania 39 Denmark 45 United States 79 Guyana 114 Mexico 109 Italy 139 United Kingdom 169 Turkey 18 Canada 102 Romania 22 Morocco 41 Slovakia 6 France 58 Azerbaijan 11 Germany 71 Ireland 57 Malta 42 Ukraine 19 Bulgaria 7 Current Top 5 Positions: 1 UNITED KINGDOM 169 2 ITALY 139 3 SWEDEN 135 4 GUYANA 114 5 MEXICO 109 The Final Session.... As already stated, there was no telling what was to come. Sure, a couple of juries went by without United Kingdom scoring points, but nothing to worry about, they had been scoring healthily all along, the points would start coming soon, or so we thought. And sooner became later, and later, and juries came and went and still the United Kingdom were superglued to their 169 points. 9 straight juries voted without a single point for the United Kingdom. By the end of that horror run, the United Kingdom's chance of lifting the trophy had vanished. Incredibly they only scored 9 points in that final session. 9 points from 11 juries when they had been scoring so heavily in the previous sessions. How it all went so wrong for John Lennon in the final session is still a mystery many TISC fans have been asking ever since. And it was a lesson for all future editions that it never is over until it's over. Meanwhile, Italy resumed their position at the top of the standings, all the while, Sweden stalking their every move, keeping a distance but never to far away to strike. With 5 juries to vote, the contest was as tight as ever..... Current Top 5 Positions after 29/34 Juries Voted: 1 ITALY 174 1 SWEDEN 174 3 UNITED KINGDOM 169 4 GUYANA 150 5 CANADA 121 A further 12 point score and a 10 pointer to boot seemingly set Italy on the road to victory. With just the juries from Malta and Bulgaria left to deliver their verdicts, Italy had totalled 196 points to Sweden's 187. Next up came the votes from Glen, the spokesperson of the Maltese National Jury. The preliminary votes were announced... no Italy, no Sweden to be seen. Then came a powerful blow.....the next vote revealed..... "Italy 10 points". Italy now sat pretty on 206 points vs Sweden's 187. Malta's 11 points came, Sweden were nowhere to be seen..... it looked a desperate cause for Roxette and the Swedes. And then...... "Sweden 12 points". The neutral crowd cheered as Malta delivered on all the suspense and TISC fans would be treated to a final vote shoot-out. Step up Bulgaria and batbobi. Seatbelts were fastened.... TISC would go to a one-by-one vote for the very first time! Current Top 5 Positions after 33/34 Juries voted: 1 ITALY 206 2 SWEDEN 199 3 UNITED KINGDOM 178 4 GUYANA 161 5 CANADA 150 The National Jury of Bulgaria were in the privileged position of crowning TISC's first ever winner. Gasps all around as it was revealed that Bulgaria were not in the mood for a quick finish and instead would deliver the hyper-suspenseful one-by-one vote. Italy knew that 6 points were all that was required to claim the title or alternatively for Sweden to appear anywhere in the first 6 reveals. The odds seemed stacked in the Italian's favour. 1 point came, 2 points, 3 points...... the tension rising with every reveal. 4 points, 5, points, 6 points go by.... no sign of the two contenders. By now, Italy knew the title would be their's if they would show up anywhere in the remaining 6 reveals - in effect, it was 6 more chances to claim the title. The reveals came and went, slower each time, the tension bubbling and boiling over! Bulgaria has used up all their reveals but one... the crucial 12 point reveal. Italy or Sweden? Or neither? "Lebanon 12 points" some users called out amusingly. Others called for a doctor, the strain of the suspense proving too much for some. And then it came, after what seemed an eternity, the refresh buttons battered to oblivion on many a keyboard across the TISC land...... and finally...... "Sweden 12 points!!!". Gasps, roars, cheers, heartbreak..... all the emotions you could think of conveyed in the floods of posts that followed. Heartache for Italy. Rapture for fabwin and Sweden. An incredible and unforgettable finale that will live long in the memory of all TISC fans. Roxette would become the first ever winner of TISC. Sweden who had not led on their own for the entire contest, delivering the killer blow when it mattered. As did TISC, such drama and excitement proved to be too good to resist and we just wanted more and more! And so here we are today, celebrating our 10th Jubilee edition and let us never forget the importance of this great first edition. So to conclude our trip down memory lane, let us pay tribute to our first ever TISC winner...... Long Live TISC !

    12 points for Brazil In all seriousness, inside sources at the Antarctic delegation have unveiled their voting process: - points for songs with "bird" in the title or in the chorus; - points for Gramado friends from the Team Challange; - points for users with animals as the picture of their user profiles; - and finally, a Ireland-Antarctica conspiracy that's being hapenning for years. Those penguins are for sure sneaky!

    Now our friends from Antarctica enter the stadium for the absolute delight of the crowd! It's their first ever participation in a Totallympics International Song Contest. As music choice for the Antarctic delegation, led by Tristan Icecapade and Eve Snowflake, nothing better than the funny children's song "O Pinguim", composed in 1970 by Vinicius de Moraes and here performed by popular brazilian singer Toquinho. The song's chorus reads as follows: Good morning, Penguin Where are you going? In a such a hurry? I'm not mean Don't be scared Afraid of me.

    As you all know, it was a great honour for Brazil to host this year's Annual contest, but as we are saying goodbye to this edition, we also look forward to the future. Later in this year, TISC is going for the first time to the United States! Only the third nation of the continent to host this event (after Mexico and Brazil), the United States will be the home for the 6th edition of the Totallympics Open song contest. Now, the organizing committee wishes good luck to @dezbee2008 and present a beautiful video with images of the nation - with the song "American Oxygen".

    A tie for second place, but Norway wins the silver because more juries voted for its song (22 vs. 20 of USA). Congratulations Italy on the amazing song, a really great choice for this contest! Today I had many many issues with the wifi, but I hope it wasn't too noticeable. Thank all of you for the participation, but I leave special thanks to @OlympicIRL and @dcro for helping me greatly with this event, never being bored by my five hundred questions. And also to @mrv86 just for being a great friend. Now, as I'm awake since yesterday's morning, excuse me that I'm gonna sleep til people think I'm dead.

    Anyways, before I'm leaving for the next 4-5 ish hours, I have a couple of words to say: The quality this year was amazing and as I've said, some of the songs that didn't score this year, would have easily made it into points in other contests. Firstly, Bulgaria @stefanbg you were in 13th for the longest time, I tried to think of ways how I could give this song a point, but the others kept edging you out in every listen. I also had Slovakia @hckosice in 14th, very nice, simple song, but I guess lacked a little bit that distinctiveness in order to edge out other songs. Algeria @bestmen you were 17th, I really liked the harmonies in your song. New Zealand @Wanderer you were up there too, but this time the NZ magic wasn't enough, but I give you points more often than I don't @heywoodu it's a little bit ironic, how the 1st time Kensington appeared, they were my twelve points, the second time in the middle of the pack with 6 points and now it just wasn't enough. And finally, the songs that did somehow get those points from me, it was an extremely tough battle and you've all sent lovely songs, good luck to you in the 3rd session

    Bossa Nova is a genre of Brazilian music that was developed and popularized in the 1950s and 1960s and is now one of the best-known Brazilian music genres abroad. The phrase bossa nova means literally "new trend" or "new wave". A lyrical fusion of samba and jazz, bossa nova acquired a large following after the 1960s among young musicians and college students. Probably the most famous brazilian musician of that time, Antônio Carlos Jobim (or simply Tom Jobim) was a primary force behind the creation of bossa nova style, and his songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and internationally. His album Getz/Gilberto was the first jazz album ever to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year. The single "Garota de Ipanema" (or "The Girl from Ipanema"), one of the most recorded songs of all time, won the Record of the Year award. The song was written with another legendary brazilian composer, Vinicius de Moraes, a prominent name in the Bossa Nova era. The duo was the main inspiration for the names of the 2016 Rio Olympics' mascots, Vinicius and Tom. Daniel Jobim, grandson of the great composer, performs the iconic song with singer Daniel Boaventura, in both portuguese and english lyrics. The song was also the first to represent our nation at the TISC Open in 2013, placing 10th.

    For the main course, a typical dish with brazilian flavours. The Pirarucu, whose habitat is the Amazon River, is here cooked with banana leaves, bringing the flavours of the North region to the plate. A farofa of manioc (tubers largelly appreciated in most brazilian tables) flour and herb stems also make up the dish.
