London Calling: Personal Bests, Milestones and Number 8

 

Only weeks are separating us from the Grand Final of the 2017 Totallympics Annual International Song Contest, and it promises to be nothing short of spectacular as 35 nations will fight it out to earn the honor of having the best song. Though it's not all about winning, as some nations may be looking just to have their best performance ever.

 

35 nations will compete in the upcoming contest, a record since the transition to the new forum, but also an overall record for the TISC Annual contests. Every nation will aim to get points from the other 34, but how many points do you need to beat you personal best, or even "personal worst" in this case?

 

Here it is. A graph has three segments. Blue arrows represent how many points a nation needs to get to match their average performance over the years. Top of the each black line represents the points needed to match the personal best, while the bottom of the each line represents the points needed to match the personal worst. Exact points for each of the three aspects are given in the table below.

So what do we see in this graph. Well, first of all, another proof of Irish dominance. There are only 5 nations whose best ever performance is better than Irish average one (those are GBR, GER, FRA, ITA and MEX)! Moreover, if we take a look at Ireland's "worst" performance, it is still higher than the best ever performance from 10 other nations competing here.

 

But it's not all about Ireland. One nation that stands out is just about the most consistent one, Portugal. They need 75 points for the best ever, and 64 for the worst ever result! In all of their three participations they finished on very similar points.

Totallympics' very own Mr. Consistency

 

One nation is missing from all this however, the "wild card" Iran, our only debutante this year. No history records can help us pinpoint their performance, but we will take a look at what Iran needs to do to be the most successful debutante ever (excluding the nations that debuted at the very first contest). But let me tell you, getting a crown for being the best debutante ever is no easy task. When Colombia debuted back at the 2014 TISC Open contest, they earned massive 228 points and finished second. Some of the most successful debutantes also include Switzerland (5th place at the 2014 TISC Open) and Australia (6th place at the 2014 TISC Annual). It appears as though first time performers have never won this thing however, excluding the very first contest of course.

 

Milestones
Now we take a look at some of the milestones that are bound to happen at the 2017 TISC Annual contest. First of all, our British hosts should get their 1000th point in TISC history. As of now, they are on 996 points, so just about the first voters may wrap this up. Hosting this contest should make this milestone even more special to the team GB. Some of the smaller, personal milestones, include the possibility (probability) of reaching their 500th TISC point for team Argentina (497 as of now) and Greece (459).

 

There are also some of the overall milestones bound to be reached. Indonesia, which will open the voting proceedings on April 29 will also become the 250th jury to present their votes. Also, 20000th overall TISC point will be awarded in this edition. It will be awarded by the jury number 8 in the voting order, Algeria. More specifically, it will go to the nation that gets 8 points from Algeria. Notice the recurring theme? Well, I guess we should keep an eye on number 8 in the Grand Final of this, the 8th edition of TISC.
