    By the Numbers: 2017 TOISC In less than two weeks, Tunisia is set to become the first African country ever to host the Totallympics International Song Contest and also the first non-European country to do so since Mexico hosted it in the Spring of 2014. Overall, this will be the 9th edition of TISC, and the 5th edition of Open. 35 countries are scheduled to take part, which equals the record from the "New" Totallympics. As much as 3 previous contests have had exactly 35 participants. Open Divas Out of 35 participating countries, only 2 of them have won TOISC previously. Ireland has won it twice, including the memorable win at the 2014 edition. Lithuania has won it once meanwhile, just like Sweden, which in turn hasn't participated in any TISC since the 2015 Annual. Lithuania's win in 2015 however came with the lowest points per jury average in history (3.95). To put that into perspective, this average would have put Lithuania only in 7th place at the very first TOISC in 2013. In fact, this average wouldn't have even put Lithuania onto the podium in any of the other 7 contests! Ireland's success at Open editions can hardly be matched though. They are the only ones who have never finished outside of top 10. Newcomers and Comeback Kids Uruguay will make its TISC debut, becoming the smallest South American country to take part. Overall, Uruguay is the 7th South American country that has joined the TISC family, consolidating South America's position as the second most represented continent. Uruguay is also the second nation that will make its debut in 2017, which surpasses 2016's number of debutantes by one. Meanwhile, Chile, Colombia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Spain and Turkey will all make their comebacks after missing one or more contests. Czech Republic has missed two Annuals thus far, but their record of never missing an Open will continue. Colombia and Turkey are coming back after missing the latest contest in Great Britain earlier this year, while Chile and Spain are coming back after missing the previous two contests. Estonia meanwhile is set to become the longest awaited nation which eventually made a return to TISC. They have missed the last 5 editions since making their debut at 2014 Open. The most notable absentee at this edition is Azerbaijan, which failed to register for the first time since TISC's introduction back in 2013. Goals and Wishes It's all about the personal bests at TISC Analytics. Here is a table with the required points for matching your PB (and required points for matching your average/worst performance). Good luck everyone. Go Totallympics! Go Music!

    Hello Guys, I returned to the forum after a long-long absence. I usually come here for results of small tournaments (like Archery Oceanian championships) or when I don't understand a rule of a sport or a competition. And I love Totallympics song contest!

    Found a friend, found the hosts, finally need to find myself. In this game of stars and flags, there's still numbers on the shelf. During this evening we're passing the time. We're going to find out the voting order tonight. And everytime we're here it's such a delight. With OlympicIRL's games holding us tight. So tell me, which number are you going to write? In two weeks not a single country will go down without a fight.

    Weinstein currently has more than 90 accusers. Toback and Spacey numbers are in the dozens. Others have been accused by several women/men and some of them are being investigated by the police. But yet let's blame the victims, even calling them "bitches". Not at all surprised by the comments here, unfortunately.

    With the voting deadline drawing into a close, let's look back at a little bit of voting history on one of the longest standing participants - Lithuania, whom has never missed an edition. Although some exact votes are hard to remember, especially since old me didn't put the early results files on a computer, but here we go. Year 2013, our first ever edition: everything is scary and new, I decide to participate with a song that had jazzy vibes and I really enjoyed when I was younger. What I also really enjoyed was "Beautiful Tango" from Morocco, I remember enjoying United States, Denmark had an amazing video clip to accompany their song and Brazil had an amazing song as well. This is actually one of the editions that I surprisingly remember fairly well. Year 2014 marks the only edition when Lithuania had two jury members with two very different opinions that hardly agreed on the song choice and on the votes, but mine were as follows: Ireland showed me an amazing song that I still perform to this day with a friend, I remember loving Great Britain and Brazil that secured my 2,3 places as well as Australia and Italy. As we can see, the top points only welcomed back Brazil that year. Year 2014 the next edition of 2014 and possibly the best edition to date for me. 2014 Switzerland is as of yet my most favourite ever TISC song that I listen to very often to this day. An unknown song managed to beat two of my favourite songs from Great Britain and Ireland, as well as a wonderful batch of runner ups, that year was very difficult to me, but I remember it vividly. It was also the famous crash & burn Lithuanian entry, when I tried my luck with my own song, if I remember correctly, my day was made brighter by lovely Brazil (one of the users gave it 12 points, I think it was vinipereira) This year also marks the only edition where all the Baltic nations were together and I remember being honestly surprised that I enjoyed both of my neighbours songs that much. Also, welcome back GB, IRL, ITA to my top points. Year 2015 is the year where I proudly say "Welcome to the contest, Netherlands, may you never leave my top 12 ever again". I remember it being such a feel good song. Also, it was definitely the year of grower songs, as New Zealand, Argentina and Denmark made a very good impression on me and kept climbing up the ladder with every listen. This is also the year where New Zealand really gets on my radar, Denmark is making an impression after a long absence, Sweden finally hitting my top 3 and Italy keeps impressing me for the 3rd year in a row with their song choices. Year 2015 became very memorable. I remember I was really upset that day and I had a chat OlympicIRL and he said that perhaps the contest would cheer me up. Well, I honestly, never in a million years would have figured that Lithuania had a chance of winning this contest and probably with one of my all time favourite Lithuanian songs. Another funny story is that I distinctly remember that I gave Morocco 11 points and not 12, but as much as I tried to look for answers, I couldn't really remember to whom did my 12 points actually go to and this is the only year when I truly don't know what happened to my twelve points, but here are my favourites: Morocco comes back into my heart with Hindi Zahra yet again. Also, USA comes back into my top points after a three edition absence. The first time that Portugal enters the contest and I loved their song, Australia coming back, New Zealand making a good impression yet again. This year also marks the disappearance of Sweden and the decline of Italy in my top 12's. Year 2016 yet another wonderful year for TISC as I loved a lot of songs and it was very difficult to score the songs. Anyways, the amazing duet from Great Britain took the cake for me. It is also the year I was introduced to Alessia Cara and yet another year that I get to witness how much I'm in love with DiHaj music. This is the year where we welcomed Indonesia into the contest and I enjoyed their entry, even though Canada has nearly always been in the points or close to them, this is the first time they get major points from me. Chile and Algeria surprise with very good entries. Even though there were points for Croatia, Serbia, Czech Republic in the past, this is the first time that Balkans really get into my higher points with the help of a nice Slovenian entry. Mexico is also a country that is always up there or close, but only the second time where they get some decent points. Also, it seems that UK hits the points more often than not. Year 2016 continues and it's HOSTING TIME. I remember being nervous, I remember not having enough time and I remember a lot of things, though one of them was the amazing music. Two time's in the top 3 for USA, this time it was the 1st place, also The Netherlands that have nearly always made it into my points are high up again, another country that almost always impresses - Brazil is back in the high points as well. France and Denmark making a good impression after some time as well as Ireland that got points from us in nearly every competition, but not always the highest ones. Biggest surprise of the contest was the lovely entry from Turkey and first time I've awarded them points. Although they've been close many many times, this is the first time for North America to score 12 from me. It seems that it marks the start of the troubles for Europe to get my twelve points. Year 2017 we're in England. My 12 points are stolen by some nice vocals and acoustic guitar from Indonesia. United States going in for the kill yet again. Big congratulations to Croatia, that previously got a point from me here & there, they get into my top 3, marking the best Balkan region song during the 8 editions. Portugal amazes once again, as well as New Zealand and Brazil with another wonderful entry. I guess that now we're left wondering who is going to snag my top points in the second edition of 2017 here in Tunisia? Of course, I might have forgotten a special song for me here and there (heck, can't remember which song got 12 from me the year we've won). From the countries that haven't entered my top points, I wanted to mention Malta that has nearly always been in consideration for points during the years as well as Finland that often snuck through into my top twelve. And if I were to rank my all time favourite top 10, possibly this would be close to how it is right now. 1. Switzerland 2014 Bastian Baker 2. Ireland 2014 Little Green Cars 3. Morocco 2013 Hindi Zahra 4. The Netherlands 2015 Kensington 5. Great Britain 2016 Birdy & Rhodes 6. The Netherlands 2016 Ilse Delange 7. Indonesia 2017 Rendy Pandugo 8.

    At Least Someone Really Liked You... In this section we will pay respects to songs that perhaps didn't rank so highly in the final analysis, but who were someone's favorite nevertheless.

    Bestmen is right about this, it's all about power... the legal/illegal discussion is all bullshit. Spain has power and is EU/NATO member so they will keep Catalunya. Serbia is a small country and not EU member, that's why they lost Kosovo.

    Unbelievable I want now Benneteau to win his match so I can enjoy the final. Will be happy with either of them winning the title. Incredible tournament for Filip. This run reminds me on Janowicz in Paris few years ago. Curiously, Janowicz today qualified for another final, though it is challenger in Eckental. Filip has great coach and if he succeeds to remain uninjured, with proper work and mental preparation as well Filip can find his place inside top 20. That would be just amazing. The only thing I want for Filip is to stay healthy. I believe results will come.

    Meanwhile, in Africa, although nobody cared, something curious happened: Burkina won 4-0 against Cape Verde and Senegal was drawing 1-1 with South Africa. There is still a CAS appeal on going for the original SA-Senegal match that SA won 2-1 that was annulled afterwards. If CAS would overturn FIFA's decision then Senegal would lose those 3 points and with results I mentioned for these last games then Burkina would qualify Fortunately Senegal scored a goal in the last minute to win 2-1 and avoid what could have been a huge mess for FIFA

    Sweden and Canada would have the major benefit from such a choice...I believe it's an already written sentence, they will be in the Gold Medal Match at 99.99%... Finland and Czech Rep. wil still be good, but probably the difference between them and the top 2 would increase by some margin... then it will also open the door for some surprising teams, I'm thinking mainly to Switzerland and Germany, who could benefit from the strenght and depth of their main domestic leagues... in general, it's a nightmare for all the Hockey fans, since the level of play would be very, very low (much lower than it's right now without those NHL idiots)... however, I think this is just some kind of an effort to try and make pressure on the IOC not to ban Russia as a whole Nation... I guess in the end Russia will be in Pyeongchang (if the Games are held there in February 2018...this is the major issue right now, in my opinion) with their full team and flag (and without those 25/30 banned athletes, or whatever will result from the next IOC/WADA auditions), ready to take advantage of the best chance to win the Hockey Olympic Gold they have had in the last 26 years (since the so-called CIS won in Albertville 1992)... because they can say what they want, but from mr.Putin to the last hockey fan in Russia, they're really mad about the drought in Olympic success in Hockey (which is still their National pastime and most beloved sport)...

    Earlier this month I found out one of our paid sports channels has 2-3 live NHL games per week, so I like watching it, but half the time I completely lose sight of the puck and then the commentator goes like "he shoots, he scoooooores!" and I'm all confused like "huh wait, what?
