I can't believe no one else got Jamaica.

Interesting... Accepted!

Vital Update

Unfortunately there will not be a semi-final show. There are many reasons for this, the first being that I have recently found employment and one of my shifts includes a Friday night. The second reason is that we have so many people applied for the final it would be a very hectic week of planning. Whilst taking the semi-final away won't remove most of the work, it will allow me to have an extra day to prepare.

I'm undecided on how to pick the semi-finalists which go through. Should I ask the judges to decide or should I put it up to some kind of vote?

I understand the problem, well if you ask me, I would personally get as many(preferably 10 or so) judges that know and understand music, and they must have some kind of pair of high quality headphones or studio moniters so they can listen for mistakes and the overall quality of the song. So pretty much ask a producer near your area or someone who works in a studio. You can be a judge as well, get quality judges who know the music industry and let them grade the songs.

Hope my post helped :)

The Judges (the ones I already have) are a mixture of music experts an music fans. I try to mix it up so the opinion is varied and that the Juges scores reflect different views. They al listen to different music too, so everyone has a fair chance.
Okay. I'l basically just ask the judges which acts should go through. Not give them any of the scoring details.
Also, the Running order for the show is going to be planned soon, you entry will not be put in the running order until it is posted. So make sure you get your entries in!

Here's my song:

Response to Represent A Country 3 [Contest] 2009-11-24 15:36:00


Artist Spotlight

Name: Popraz

Joining newgrounds in 2008, Popraz specialises in making Dramatic Classical music (alongside with the odd Miscellaneous and videogame pieces). He has a special ability to create emotion which grabs the heart string of the listener. His RAC debut was in the second contest, he represented Romania with his Dystopia sounding 'Dark World Adiago'.

Once again, he is back to represent Romania with his chilling piece 'Stand United'.

Being his second contest, Popraz is now elegible for a spot in the 'Top 3' in the next contest. His place will depend on how he performs in this contest!

Thank you very much for the spotlight, I greatly appreciate it !

Here is my entry for the contest, I might make a updated version right before the deadline, I will contact you if I do make it or if I don't. It was hard making this because I wanted to make this longer but given the 4min limit I tried my best, so the song does seem a bit rushed.

Enjoy my song! :D

Anywho in all seriousness, I hope that everyone who had to go through the Semi-final thing does well. Yes i know every jackass has said this in the thread and comments, but it's true. lol I hope things go smoothly(or as smooth as possible) for this contest. =3

I just finished writing out the bagpipe part of the song I'll be doing for the contest, the rest will be easy, but hell this is the first actual bagpipe tune I've written in years.
Tomorrow's kind of a town holiday thing, so I'll have a recording of the bagpipes up on Saturday.

Oh shnap, so how many entries we got in so far, and are the "Big3" people entering this one?

Response to Represent A Country 3 [Contest] 2009-11-29 22:43:24


I suppose I'll enter this. Would have done more work on it, but my mouse decided to bust and I can't get a new one at the moment. Oh well.

Baah, computer crashed... I'll start from scratch again (but it'll be a remix of one of my earlier songs), and I'll hopefully send it in by the 2nd.
