Congrats Hiji sis!!!!! I was soooo happy when I saw you'd won, totally deserved and I can't wait to see the slayage of WV in Mecca
Thanks to all who voted for , I knew sending Boy In Space would be a risk so I'm not surprised to have come last. He's got such a unique and special voice and I know hip songs don't usually do too well in WV. Still I'm super glad he found some fans here
and thanks to everyone for their words of encouragement this edition! I'm gonna make a full post tomorrow, but all I'll say for now is that it means more than usual this edition
Congratulations once again Hiji, great winner and what an epic way to end your first official final! Great song to prevail in the final. Congrats also to everyone else in the top 5 on your results, the top of the results is great. Thank you also @theCONWEL for your on point expert hosting as usual. You're such a seasoned pro at it, and living up expectations. Even with the problems it was all on point and came together.
Thank you so much for my result I was a bit aprehensive to send Christina Perri again with such a song but It's one I truly love and been one of my all time most listened songs, you've proven it the right choice having blowing out the part her previous result. Thank you very much indeed. 5th place and my 2nd best ever semi final result is epic. Much love.
Congratulations once again to Hiji on that epic victory and also congratulations to Luis for getting a fabulous bronze medal!!! You two both worked it!
2nd - 169 points
Thank you very much for that support What a great finish. I felt deep down I wouldn't win (despite what some of you were so adamantly saying) cause of the over hype which is always a curse (see Seoul last edition) and just general bad timing but we put up a great fight, and I'm very pleased so many of you enjoyed Margo Price's lush ballad. The first LL moment touched me kind of hard, I admit it. Seeing what was it, 21/22 of you woot? That was special. Thank you. Also that 12 exchange with Switzerland had me all like I kept going back to that delicious entry of yours. I loved it.
And thank you Connor for being such a fabulous host for us I appreciate all your hard work very much and it was fun getting back into Idol again and secretly listening to Michelle McManus hits. You've been a star, our WorldVision Idol
Congratulations to it's a pity, but it's also a great result, congrats!
Congratulations to everyone who liked flop-rock. Not a bad result, surprisingly. Thank you for voting, good people!
By the way, I guessed 5 songs from the top-6 - it's time to close this contest. And it almost happened, but...
Thank you, @theCONWEL for fixing everything and showing us these shocking results!
I have been participating in different online contests since 2009, but I got my FIRST EVER win a few minutes ago, and it's with Saudi Arabia, a country where music was considered WOWOWO-HARAM! until very recently.
It's so unreal, thank you guys for giving me this victory at my first ever qualification in the contest, and at a point when I was already preparing to leave Saudi Arabia.
I was totally joking when I said Mecca 132 but who could have said it could actually happen?
Thank you Connor for the great show, it was a pleasure to win in your iconic hosting and also big round of applause to Kai, you would have been a great winner!
Considering the possibility that I might have to wait another 11 years for my next win,
Wrap your hijabs, we are taking off. Destination: Mecca
