Could Poland be having its debut victory at the ESC? For me its certainly a possibility, especially since it’s 100% juries. Such a beautiful song and such wn amazing voice this girl has!

Wiwibloggs explained to me that they always upload the first run-through at the rehersal.The jury will judge the final show, but it’s very logical that the Eurovision judges might be following the two rehearsals of the contestants which may well influence their expert opinion about the performance of each contestant in the final show. 🙂

+Josh Salmon Thank you for your explanation. So you uploaded the first run-through of Martija’s performance which unfortunately happened to be on playback. I am reading too much into this due to the comments on youtube when the video was uploaded. Although they were positive about Martija in general, some commentators hated the playback. Thank you for your positive comments on the Macedonian entry and for evaluating her high in your Wiwi Jury this year. On the topic of unbiased journalism I just want to make one more point to clear things up. Judging from what you wrote, this playback… Read more »

Maybe Wiwibloggs does only record the last attempt of the rehearsals. Nevertheless Wiwibloggs doesn’t have any influence at the juries and the juries will only judge the final show, so this isn’t unfair.

@Sanja You’re reading far too much into this. We will always upload the first run-through the contestants perform in the event in order to get the footage onto our YouTube channel quickly. If the delegation from FYR Macedonia decided to have the first run-through on playback, then that’s their fault. Also, to suggest that we are conspiring against Martija is ridiculous. She came second in our Wiwi Jury this year – the highest result any entry from FYR Macedonia across both the adult and junior contests. We love the song, and we believe it’s FYR Macedonia’s biggest chance of winning… Read more »

I think its because they are not permitted to record for the entire 30 mins

+Chance Could you answer my question? WHY DID WIWIBLOGGS UPLOAD ONLY THE PART OF MARTIJA’S REHEARSAL WHERE SHE PRACTICED DANCING WITH THE SONG ON PLAYBACK, while on the other hand, they uploaded the live performances of all the other candidates. People hate playback which creates a negative vibe around the Macedonian entry. If they don’t give explanation, I am still waiting, the reason for this biased journalism is obvious: to eliminate Martija as potential favourite. This implies a possible setup of the entire contest. They might eliminate your favourites too. This is totally unfair for Martija who showed in the… Read more »

Sanja, THE POLL HAS NO BEARING ON ANYTHING. This isn’t bias or “unfair.” It’s people’s opinions so stop whining.

Despite Fiammas timing in the beginning she still had the best rehearsal imo. 🙂

Not fair for Macedonia. Wiwibloggs uploaded only that part where Martija rehearsed dancing with the song on playback. The results of this poll would neither be fair nor realistic, because one contestant was unfairly deprived by the wiwibloggs biased journalism from the possibility to show that her vocals are on point live. 🙁
