Site's Ranking

First of all I have to introduce concept of ranking system used on our site. All points under category EK rating and on this page- are marks put by me- author. As I try to do my best to be objective (I'm doing rankings of any kind for more than 5 years now) there usually is a big chance that my opinion will be completely different from yours.
Now about points thereselves. Each song in final is ranked by 4 categories with 4th being mark for live presentation during final night. In each category 10 points is maximum. At national pages of this website each song is marked out of 10, with only song, not singer taken into consideration, cause ESC is contest of songs, not singers.
And again I have to mention that ranking is put on site just to be rough guide for you, to give estimates for each song.
If you want to express your opinion, agree or disgaree with author -mail me

Besides our own ranking we're introducing new column - EKspertyza, where all songs qualified for Big Final are reviewed by participant of Russian preselection, well-known singer and composer Kevin. His review is located here.

The 4th edition of the National Finals Song Contest, NFSC 2003 has finished! Contest is run by Eurovision - Madrid website.
Winner of 2003 edition is Alcazar with I'm not a sinner, nor a saint (Sweden).
It is a fan contest, where all songs from preselections that don't make it to the final ESC compete. All songs are divided into a number of groups (12 in the previous editions) and registered juries vote for each group in the eurovision way. The most voted songs (it depends on every year, normally 6 or 7) progress to the semifinals. Then, the same ... everybody votes in the semifinals, and the top 8 (if there are 3 semifinals) progress to the final. And finally, there is the voting of the final, where all juries decide the winner of NFSC 2003. The past editions were won by Magazin (2000), Ebonique (2001) and Karmen Stavec (2002).
