Since Tuesday, 16 entries have been battling it out in the first semi-final of wiwivision 2015 – our alternative song contest. In just two days, over 2,000 votes have already been cast. Y’all are  clearly hungry for the music, so let semi-final two commence! The country list is the same as Eurovision 2015, but this time the songs and acts have been chosen by the wiwibloggs team. The 17 entries below all want a spot in the grand final. However, we can only let ten progress.

wiwivision 2015 trailer

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 17 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 Monday 29 June and the ten qualifiers will be revealed on Thurday 2 July.

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!

Can’t believe when I saw Tulisa’s pic in the main photo! Love her song ‘young’, only recently discovered it since it wasn’t discovered here in Australia. It’s sad that things went downhill (e.g. drugs and surgery), I hope she can recover, her new sound seems promising. Good choice, Chris!

The large majority of the songs presented in both semi-finals are too similar, designed with the same flavour of indie pop / indietronica.

You chose one of the worst azeri singers. I think one of followings would be fine:

On my break at work, to continue listening to this lineup; and I’m absolutely astonished. Icelandic reggae?! They did their homework, no doubt. How long have they been at it?

Stefanie Heinzmann is amazing, I love her latest album. She’s my favourite from this bunch along with Norway and Lithuania. Weak heart, coincendentially, has to be the weakest Zara Larsson song I’ve ever heard.
Overall, much better than semi 1, like in the real contest.
What’s funnier, Icelandic reggae, Macedonian caribbean rythm or Samarinese poor attempt at hard rock?

The Czech Republic has a beautiful song. I really like it. It is NOT only because it’s the Czech Republic!

Chris :- Well you may be bending the rules a bit with Tulisa and Miriam but you have ended up with two cracking songs which should be contenders. Surely it has to be “Uptown Funk” or “Love me like you do” for the UK?

Norway: DAAAYUMMM! If they had sent this instead of Mørland and Debrah, I think Måns would have been in BIG trouble!

Tulisa’s father is apparently Greek-Cypriot. She has family based in Cyprus too. And believe me, I looked *hard* for some good Cypriot music from non-ESC artists.

Plus, I figure there’s no way in hell that she’d ever do it for the UK but her pride might take enough of a beating that she’d probably go do it for Cyprus some time 😛

@ Eugene
Yes…I was surprised my self tooto see Tulisa being used 4 Cyprus’s choice…I really thought that Tulisa was from Greece instead..
And i believed that Chris was English boy as he lives in England..
Well i guess that he used Tulisa when Greek Cypriots are from Greece so its kinda the same although different..

Still find it hard to believe that these were the very BEST songs for these countries in the last year. Generally another pretty poor bunch and no wows here for me again but for those who wanted diversity, they certainly got it here!! Diverse they may be, but the winner will be the song that appeals to the masses. Tulisa from N-Dubz has an Irish Mother and a Greek Father and was born in Camden, London. So where is the Cyprus connection? Anyway……….my picks for the best would be :- Lithuania (By far the best for me) Cyprus Sweden Poland… Read more »

Okay any love the Czech song is getting is only because its the Czech Republic, if it was anyone else’s in the semi ( baring San Marino and Israel ) then it would be one of the lowest in the semi.

Yes! For once I can have high expectations for our entry ( Ireland ) 😛

In the end this is basically the same as eurovision the only difference is CR and San Marino tend to qualify.

Strong 2nd semi final! Much stronger than the first one in my opinion, though there were some exceptions in the first one.
My votes go to the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Poland, Lithuania and Ireland.
In the first semi I liked Finnland a lot (still probably my overall favourite) but also Estonia, Denmark and Hungary.

Norway, Switzerland, Latvia, Azerbaijan and Cyprus were really good, and I’ll add a vote in for Montenegro, Portugal and Ireland for also being interesting. Overall I liked this semi more than the first, but Belgium and Selah Sue still remain my favourite.

I just knew when i saw the picture of Gjan i was going to choose her. No matter how good the others songs are. Been a fan of her for years now, she is just amazing. Hope she is going to win this thing. Also like Helia from San Marino 🙂

Well, GJan from Lithuania has a unique voice and her videos score millions of views on YouTube, so… I’ll vote for LTU 😉

And next goes Sweden.
