    Hosting an Olympics is very expensive. I understand that many politicians oppose them.

    The website never really opened in the 3rd session for me so couldn't post my vote. All other websites work fine but this doesn't open after 11.30pm and before 7am. Disaster! 
     
    @Griff88 @Skijumpingmaster Both the songs were sure to be in 1st 2 after 1 listening.  
    @hckosice  I listened to this 5-6 times. It was in 3rd position till last 2 hearing but then the last minute was sorta making it bored. Lyrics were good. 
    @Vektor  I loved the instrumentals along with the music. 
    @vinipereira @titicow A really interesting lyric video along with the music. 
    @heywoodu The song wasn't bad, it wasn't a song it was a poem for me. And this getting the trophy is a disaster. 
    If such good Indonesian entry can't earn at least 100 points I'm afraid any non -English song would ever do. 
     
    My points were awarded pretty fairly with 30 points each for Music, Lyrics, Theme and 10 for something extra special. A total out of 100 was done. 
    A suitable correction factor was applied
    a. If song was in native language then score * 1.25
    b. If score was in English, with the language not  spoken by more than 25% population  or it is not the main language used in government papers then score *1
     
     
    Our song may not be the best buy if this song can't get in top 25 I really doubt about the jury members. The problem is favouritism + some users " like some nations " rather than song and give their points. 
     
    Come on TOISC can be renamed Totallympics Open Eurovision contest and US and Australia can be invited.

    It’s just hard to appreciate a song I can’t understand. I to give quite a few points to foreign language entries, but in the case I just love Riptide and Liquid Lunch too much. 
     
    Here’s my personal voting everyone, forgot to post it earlier :
     
     
    12 pts:  I mean come on, one of the best songs of the decade
    11 pts:  Very under-appreciated . Absolutely beautiful. Great choice @Vektor. Loved it from the minute I heard it.
    10 pts:  This one grew on me. Totally didn’t expect it to be the Danish entry (I just used the playlist, so as too avoid making political decisions). Would have made @Wumo and @Agger day I think 
    9 pts:  Great choice @heywoodu. Loved it from the minute I heard it (thought it was New Zealand at first). I just decided to award it a bit less than the others. Tone was perfect, lyrics were fun, and the voice had a good level of mastery.
    8 pts:  @Manulete Another great entry. This is one of three songs to have made my main playlist from this TISC
    7 pts:  (0 pts )
    6 pts:  @Skijumpingmaster This is song is in my genre of preference, but it just didn’t have the wow quality of others. A good entry nonetheless. I fully didn’t expect it to get points, but it grew on me when it mattered.
    5 pts:  best performance by an Arabic song @amen09. I could tell it was from the Arab Spring and Tunisia right away ?
    4 pts:  @Griff88 unlike your voting, this song was not ass. The genre wasn’t my taste, but it definitely deserved points nonetheless. I agree with @Fly_like_a_don that the song punched under its weight (though I think the top 7-8 are correct)
    3 pts:  @Belle You submitted my childhood. Road trips with a Mamma Mia! CD. I knew all the words, but honestly, I like the cover more. Still the song deserves points.
    2 pts:  @IoNuTzZ For some reason I know this song well. Again, it just wasn’t as good as the top 6 or so, but another solid entry. 
    1 pt:  @rybak I really liked this song, but in this case the language barrier killed you. As I said earlier, I enjoyed the risk you took.
    R1:  (would have received 1 pt ?) @dcro Bold risk going with a instrumental song. I just couldn’t get myself to give it more points, though it fully deserved a better final ranking.
    R2:  @Glen I know I haven’t given you a lot of points, but I love the songs you share. I eagerly await your annual entry.
    R3:  @Fly_like_a_don Fully expected this song to be in my top 5, but in the end, it just didn’t click with me. Still very thankful that you shared your entry with us.
    R4:  Qazakstan ?. Music video was a bit much for me. Surprising entry nonetheless.
     
    A big thanks to @Wumo and @Agger for hosting a wonderful, albeit quite gaffed, edition of the TISC. Completely enjoyed my time on this thread.
     
    Huge shoutout to all the participating juries. I love competing in this competition and learning through this cultural exchange. Honestly one of the best parts of the forum. Hope to see everyone participating again in the Spring.
     
    In closing, Spain 12

    Norway is considering to apply for 2030 olympics . The counties of Trøndelag , Telemark , Oppland and Hordaland wants have the olympics . Rogaland might also join.
     
    If they get the government and stuff on board then Norway might apply. 
     
    It will be a decentralized game with the events spread out on the various counties. 
    It was mentioned having cross country in Trondheim , alpine skiing on Lillehammer , ice sports in Bergen and freestyle events on Voss. There's also talk of including a ski flying event in Vikersund.
     
    IOC member Gerhard Heiberg said that in the future host nations might include new events that fits with that nation's games . Int that case Norway might include Telemark , ski orientering , bandy and dog sled racing. 
     
    Lillehammer wanted to apply for 2026 games , but it didn't get support.

    Yeah, I remember the yodelling got a lot of televotes too, so I'm not very surprised actually. Still doesn't really change the fact that the song had an awful conception as was somewhat shown by the low score from the jury.
     
    I loved Norway in 2014, adored Norway in 2015 and loved Norway again in 2017. Last year it was Rybak with the worst lyrics of 2018 (and that's in a year where we had songs like Gucci gang), so I am really really hoping Norway can make this right with a wonderful song in 2020, because I miss enjoying your music.

    Actually, I like this voting sequence better than the one they had previously. I was pleasantly surprised that Norway won the televote, but shocked that North Macedonia with its sleeper ballad did so well with the juries. Of course it was inevitable that the Netherlands would win, but I cheered for them anyway.
     
    Also, why y'all gotta do Malta like that tho?

    By the way, you got 12 Points from German televoting.
     
    And thanks Europe for the well deserved 0 points in Televoting. It's the deserved punishment for broadcaster NDR who did nothing to promote the Songs or singers in the last months or to help them in any way.

    Well the popular votes clearly shows that the jury votes are fucked up , just look at NM , Sweden and Czech . And Norway was very popular with the televotes , but only received 47 from the jury.
