Sound the trumpets. Blast some “Te Deum”. Let wiwivision 2015 commence! After yesterday’s launch party, it’s time to kick-off the first semi-final in our alternative song contest. The country list is the same as Eurovision 2015, but this time the songs and acts have been chosen by the wiwibloggs team. The 16 entries below all want a spot in the grand final. However, we can only let ten progress.

Who goes and who stays will be determined by a 50/50 split between readers and the Wiwi Jury. For more details on the voting rules and song selection criteria, click HERE.
You can listen to the first 16 semi-finalists below. This isn’t a tv show, so we’ve decided to move away from the producer-led running order favoured by the EBU. The draw is completely random. Obviously, y’all can ignore it and pick and choose who you want to hear first. It’s up to you!
Once you’re ready, vote in our poll. You can vote for as many entries as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to check the box next to every entry you want to support before submitting your votes. Voting ends on Sunday 28 June and the ten qualifiers will be revealed on Tuesday 30 June.
Of course, y’all can do more than just vote. We have a comment box for a reason – what do you think of our choices? Would you have chosen differently? Who would you have picked instead? And how do our choices rate compared to the “real” Eurovision entries? Let us know!
