    wow 4th place ! and just 1 point away from the podium. have to say I didn't expect that at all. actually I would be happy with just not finishing last to me that was a very good music but I didn't expect non-Persian speakers to vote for that. I was somehow following the thread in evening, was kind of busy to write anything myself but that was fun, thanks everybody who voted for Iran

    Anyone excited for the Grand Final? TISC analytics will continue the tradition of following the leader's average score per jury. Most of the updates to come on judging breaks. Let's not forget The Committee of Key Nations (nations that always give some points to the eventual winner). 7 of those are competing here. Draw has been quite favourable, with most of them coming later on. And here's a map of voting. Good luck everyone.

    COMHAIRLE NAN EILEAN SIAR (SCO) Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is a council/county area that covers the Western Isles of Scotland, including the Outer Hebrides, it is a part of Scotland I definitely want to visit, but have never had a chance so I am very jealous of the delegations who get to stay here. For the next week this county will be home to Tunisia @amen09@tuniscof and Ireland @OlympicIRL, the founders and next host of the contest, maybe they can have a meeting about the future of the contest on the islands! Tunisia - Isle of Lewis (Outer Hebrides) The Tunisian delegation will make the Isle of Lewis their new home for the coming days. The Isles of Lewis is located at the Northern tip of the Outer Hebrides and therefore, as the picture suggests, the Northern Lights can be seen at certain times of the year from the Island. Also shown in the picture are the Callanish Stones, a ritual site during the Bronze Age, one tradition goes that the stones are petrified giants who refused to convert to Christianity, whilst the history might be disputed they are definitely a maginficant site. And this is where the Tunisian delegation will be staying, seriously, these ancient houses have been rennovated and are now a holiday accomodation site on the shores of the Atlantic (Garenin blackhouse village), not advised to go paddling in these waters! Ireland - St Kilda The beautiful, now uninhabited, Island of St Kilda will be home to Ireland for the coming days. The Island has a sad past, as the last surviving residents were evacuated from the island during WW2 after centuries of human inhabitation. The island itself is now a world heristage site and has a history of Vikings, Druids, raids and resistence. However life on the island is incredibly challenging, as brutal storms can strike the island. St Kilda may not have many humans left, but that has been more than replaced by wildlife! Thousands of seabirds flock to the island as a breeding ground, but because of the salt spray and strong winds, no trees grow on the island. We hope a storm doesn't trap the most sucsessful TISC nation of all time on the island for the grand final, or was that the scheming plan of the hosts all along...

    COUNTY LONDONDERRY (NIR) County Londonderry is located in Northern Ireland and has the motto - help comes from the Lord - a reminder of the strong Catholic community in this part of Northern Ireland. For the next week this county will be home to Indonesia @Griff88 and France @Benolympique@Bohemia, with the nations enjoying contrasting urban/rural experiences. Indonesia - Londonderry The city of Londonderry, often known as Derry, on the banks of the Foyle river will be home to the Indonesian delegation for the coming days. Derry remains the only completely intact walled city in Ireland and these walls were bult in the 17th Century by the English and Scottish as defences. The city is often called The Maiden City, because the city walls have never been breached, despite a 105 day attempt in 1689. Derry was also where The Troubles in Northern Ireland began, with the Battle of the Bogside, but it was also part of the end, as many historians think a ceasefire was negotiated in Derry before any national agreement was reached. The city is also home to 1 of 15 World Peace Flame Monuments, that was unveiled by Martin Luther King's son and was lit by children from both communities. Derry has also become a hotspot for culture, after being UK Capital of Culture in 2013. One of these events is the Big Tickle Comedy Festival that has attracted big names like Dara O Briain over the years. We hope that Indonesia will be able to enjoy some comedy whilst they are here, but they may need to listen well as the accent can be quite thick in these parts! France - Binevenagh Mountain Team France will be based at Binevenagh Mountain, which has been used as a filming location for Game of Thrones. The mountain has a highest point of nearly 400m and has been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The mountain is commonly used for Air Sports like Gliding and fishing, as an artificial lake at the top of the mountain is a popular destination for trout fishermen. The mountain is a popular destination for walkers and we hope the French delgation enjoy the amazing views from the peak of the mountain, but they'll need to muster the energy to climb the mountain first! For those of us not lucky enough to be based at Binevenagh, here is a little taster of what it is like...

    After three hours of reading and cheering I finally got through this another successful edition of TISC. First of all, congratulations to GB for another win, I was the first (and for quite a long time only one) to give them 12 points. Next, thank you to all, who gave points to our song, especially to , giving us maximum possible. I was quite surprised, knowing Slovenian language is quite complexed for most of you, but this is one more proof music is still no.1 in your hearts, as well as in mine. @mihamiha, thank you for choosing Nina Pušlar, she is one of my favourite singers, so it was not hard to go with your choice. I am not so often on this site, but some things never changed. Soon you will see a table with results put in official Eurovision style, so without 11 and 9 points. I can't wait for next contest, I believe I already have a song chosen, will just have to beat my fellow member from Slovenia. Till next time wishing you a lot of musical enjoyment!

    To begin this ceremony we will rise, rise into the skies above the city of Brighton, look out along the Sussex coast, inland to the South Downs and out to the English Channel and mainland Europe and the world beyond. But look, now we are at the top of the tallest moving observation tower in the world, the i360, what can we see? In the distance the Irish delegation are boarding a raft leaving the island of St Kilda, we can see the Mexican and Moldovan delegations finishing their hike along Glyndwr's Way, we can see the Lithuania team's hot air baloon landing by the Clifton Suspension Bridge, we can see Potugal at the highest point in Britain and we can see Algeria in a bad mood counting down the seconds until they can leave the Giant's Causeway. So now is the time to bring the delegations of the world together and welcome the entire Totallympic's community to Brighton. So without further ado, let us welcome the delagtions to Brighton, region by region, welcoming them to the contest with a parade of nations, led by a cultural anthem from their host region.

    THE HIGHLANDS (SCO) The Highlands is not technically a county, but it is a region of Scotland that is truely stunning. It will be the base for Portugal @kungshamra71 and Croatia @dcro. Portugal we expect a photo from the top, you don't have long to climb it either, so you might want to cheat and take the cable car. Portugal - Ben Nevis (highest point in Britain) Croatia - Dunoon (home of the Highland Games)

    Hmmm, I think it is not a good idea to have another contest. As much as I love music, for a sport forum it might be too much and also, the excitement, importance and all the things regarding TISC may lose its value. However, if there is really strong will for such a contest, I might enter. About winning the TISC... I must say I often feel disappointed with songs selection for the Open contests. I usually expect there for participants to dig deep and select songs which are at the same time less known and also not so much contemporary, for example, it would be better to have less songs from XXI century. I see Open contests as an opportunity to learn more about culture of the particular nation through the music. That would be ideal, of course. Language is not and shouldn't be a barrier for potential win, I still believe that. To have a European winner is also more probable given the percentage of European countries competing. Brazil was close this year to surprise and I think, when we make a retrospective - which songs were nominated and which ones won - one can make a winning choice easier. But after all, it is all about music tastes. I still keep playing despite the fact I am not very much fond of the most selections. But I enjoy the contest that much that a fact doesn't bother me at all I already have a selection for TISC Open 2017

    If you're going forward with this, perhaps you can name it Totallympics Four Continents Challenge (TFCC). But then again, as they say "less is more", so introducing another contest could devalue the existing ones...

    CORNWALL (SW) Cornwall is located on the South Western most tip of the UK, with the landmark of Lands End, which marks the most westerly part of the UK. For the next week this county will be home to Slovakia @hckosice and Slovenia @justony, it was a pairing that was too good to miss, hopefully it doesn't confuse the Cornish people as much as it seems to confuse the UK media! Slovakia - Scilly Isles There is a long journey in store for the Slovakian delegation, but it is totally worth it! The Scilly Isles, located 45km off the coast of Cornwall, have been compared with Caribbean Islands for their white sand and blue sea beaches. The archipeligo contains 150 islands, of which 5 are inhabited, with the main island being St Mary's island. The biodiversity of the Scilly Isles is unique from the UK mainland, due to the complex climate and more than half of the Islands have been decalred Sites of Special Scientific Interest. But the Isles are not just a tranquil paradise, the Western Rocks are known as the graveyard, as many ships have been destroyed by the rocks, British, German and American ships have all come a cropper against the rocks of Scilly. In fact there have been more shipwrecks around the shores of Scilly than anywhere else in the world! The World Pilot Gig Championships are held in the Scilly Isles every year and they will take place this weekend, just in time for the Slovakian delegation to take a look. These small boats would guide bigger ships through the treacherous waters years ago, and the tradition has continues in the form of a competition. We are going to enter the delegation as a beginner Slovakian team into the Championships for the first ever time and see how they get on, as long as they stay upright that will be a success! Here's a look at gigging: Slovenia - St Ives The traditional fishing town of St Ives will be home to the Slovenian delegation for the next week, a town that has twie been named the Best UK Seaside Town. At the peak of the fishing industry over 120 million fish were brought through St Ives! But Team Slovenia beware, St Ives is a hotspot for shark sightings, in 2007 a Great White Shark was reportedly spotted off the coast and in 2011 there was a suspected sighting of an Oceanic whitetip shark, both claims have been disputed, but nevertheless Slovenia need to watch their toes if they go in for a paddle! Art is very important in St Ives culture, with a St Ives branch of the Tate Gallery being established here. In particular, scuplture is important with famous artists like Barbara Hepworth and Naum Gabo being based here who were pioneers in modern sculpture. The sculpture garden at the Barhara Hepworth Museum is certainly worth a visit.

    GWYNEDD (WAL) The county of Gwynedd is located in North West Wales and has a majority Welsh speaking population (quite rare fr modern Wales). The name Gwynedd comes from the ancient Kingdom of Gwynedd, which was an independent kingdom from when the romans left until the 13th Century. For the next few weeks this county will be home to Argentina @konig@LDOG and Kazakhstan @Ruslan, one will be on the mainland and one on an island.. Kazakhstan - Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch If you are wondering how you say it, then this weatherman nails the pronounciation! I expect the Kazakh delegation to have it nailed as well by the time they make there way to the Grand Final! Oficially it is the longest place name in Europe, and second longest in the world, only beaten by Taumatawhakatangi­hangakoauauotamatea­turipukakapikimaunga­horonukupokaiwhen­uakitanatahu in New Zealand. The name itself was a publicity stunt to attract attention to the new railway station in the 1860s, but the locals have embraced it and the name has stuck. There is more to the village than the name, as the first ever Women's Insititute meeting took place in the vllage. Argentina - Ynys Mon The island of Ynys Mon, or Anglesey in English, is known for its beaches and its royals. It has been taken over by Vikings and Normans over the Islands history and the completion of Telford's Brittania Bridge in 1826 revolutionised the island as access was made much easier. Today the island has one of the homes of Prince William and Kate and with stunning coastlines that attract visitors from across the UK. The Argentinian delegation are in for a beautiful week on the Island and this short video gives a small taster of what is in store for Argentina..
