Please post your predictions in this thread. Picks are due after the last song performs at 4:30 PM EST on Saturday, May 26th.

See the instructions below.

::

So here is what an entry will look like:

Part 1
Place Finishes:

1st: (Worth 120 points)
2nd: (Worth 100 points)
3rd: (Worth 80 points)
4th: (Worth 70 points)
5th: (Worth 60 points)
6th: (Worth 50 points)
7th: (Worth 40 points)
8th: (Worth 30 points)
9th: (Worth 20 points)
10th: (Worth 10 points)
...
22nd: (Worth 10 points)
23rd: (Worth 20 points)
24th: (Worth 30 points)
25th: (Worth 60 points)
26th: (Worth 100 points)

You also get points for countries that you correctly put in the top ten or bottom five, but whose exact placing you miss. These points will be determined by the following formula:

Points if you would have gotten it right
-------------------------------------- = Points you get (with rounding)
Places Missed by + 1

So for example, if you predicted Israel to come in third but they actually win, you would receive

120
---- = 40 points
2+1

It's a lot less complicated than it looks...


Part 2:
The Biggest Points from _____ Go To...

For this section, you pick a country who you think the given country will give big points to. Scoring for this part is pretty simple. You get however many points are actually given. For example, if you predict Norway for Portugal, and Portugal gives Norway five points, you get five points. There is a bonus for correctly guessing the top point getter. If you predict the country to whom the maximum twelve points is given, you get twenty-four points for your prognosticating prowess.

These are the 42 countries whose point giving you'll be looking to predict. Those performing in the final are listed in order of performance.
