Hey! I'm sending you here about the contest you were asking about, because it's a bit off topic. It's called The Countdown. It's an independent contest and it has its own forum which is not related to ESC (although some of the jurors are ESC fans) and it has only one juror per country. The creator of the contest recruits people from all over the world, he was doing it from ESC forums, last.fm and Facebook. There are jurors that aren't ESC-fans, and this makes it more interesting! I would invite you to join, but Austria has its juror, and the rule is that each country must have only one juror. Otherwise, you'd like it, there's a big variety of songs each month and a variety of tastes.
