05-13-2013, 09:44 PM
Please post your predictions in this thread. Picks are due after the last song performs at around 4:30 PM EST on Saturday, May 18th.

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

---- = 40 points

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

Here are the countries you will be choosing from (in the order that they will perform):
1. France
2. Lithuania
3. Moldova
4. Finland
5. Spain
6. Belgium
7. Estonia
8. Belarus
9. Malta
10. Russia
11. Germany
12. Armenia
13. The Netherlands
14. Romania
15. United Kingdom
16. Sweden
17. Hungary
18. Denmark
19. Iceland
20. Azerbaijan
21. Greece

23. Italy
24. Norway
25. Georgia
26. Ireland

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 Spain, and Spain 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 25 countries whose point-giving you'll be looking to predict.

The Netherlands
United Kingdom
