"An anonymous whistleblower has provided unproved claims [to whom?] . . . "Just when you thought the drama for JESC was over.
Sounds like a Nigerian prince scheme.

Oh man, that is just nuts...[Meanwhile, in Baku, there are reports that 43 people were detained by Azerbaijani security inquiring into why they voted for Armenia in JESC. Poor Sona! Let's hope she gets through the flak as well as Arpine did. On the other hand, apparently, after JESC 2018, the boy representing Armenia and the girl representing Azerbaijan took a photo together. I haven't found any evidence that they are not still safe and well.]
Actually I could be wrong (as I can't say I am the biggest fan or follower of jESC), but if I recall correctly (at least from earlier jESC) then at least officially the performers were supposed to have been co-written the entries.There was never a rule. It was just a custom. Greenhousing started professionalisation and then everyone was doing professional songs and singer training/packaging. I am saying that now the former custom should be made the rule.
Is this a question to me or just general rhetorical? That's my point, in some entries you can obviously hear that they are made by adults, but the problem is how to actually prove it? Just claiming it because it sounds like it isn't proving it, thus delegations can still claim something elseRe cheating: you cannot tell whether a song is written by a child or by a professional? I know you can and so can everyone!
Yeah, one of the obvious issues with the contest, you have these teenagers competing with adult-made entries against kids with actual kids-songs... it's just an odd playing-fieldI am not a big fan of JESC, because for me this is a little bit weird and creppy. It's hard to compare typical chidlish songs sung by little kids with professional hits by someone who is more like young adult (but still 14, lol).
You don't know and I don't know if it was a rule or not. Maybe one of our seniors here can advise us.Actually I could be wrong (as I can't say I am the biggest fan or follower of jESC), but if I recall correctly (at least from earlier jESC) then at least officially the performers were supposed to have been co-written the entries.
Having done a law degree, I can tell you that there is no law a human can write that another human with sufficient intelligence and determination cannot evade. Yet we must not give up trying because the alternative is anarchy.Is this a question to me or just general rhetorical?

That's a really stupid rule. You definitely could argue that both singer and songwriter should be under 15 years old but why would they need to be the same person?First, the EBU should make the rule: no song is accepted for JESC if at least the lyrics are not written by the child who sings it.
The rule is not stupid. What is stupid is to have an 11 year old like Tatyana Mezhentseva singing "Mon ami, feels like a fairytale, follow me, you will see, magic will happen tonight, imagine it, no one can stop us now," or Ike Mizzi and Kaya Gouder Curmi, the 10 year old "lovers", exchanging lines like "I got feelings that I never really felt in my life, so I started giving hints tryna show y'all, I'm the one for you, so we can do this right, so come a step closer, let me hold you" and "Don't tell me it's not real 'cause we're young." If it were not so disgusting, this packaging of children as romantic singers to make money might be laughable.That's a really stupid rule. You definitely could argue that both singer and songwriter should be under 15 years old but why would they need to be the same person?
Not every singer is a good songwriter. Not every songwriter is a good singer. And not every songwriter wants to be in the spotlight. It's totally reasonable to have these things seperate. You would exclude a lot of talented singers and amazing songwriters.
You would never demand of a baker to make their own flour but a singer HAS to write every song on their own? Singers can still connect to a song and perform it effectively without being the writer. And a singer can put their own twist on a song and interpret it in a different way that the writer could never achieve themselves.
Yes, it's great! Poland still has a lot of talent (like Roxana, Wiki and yes, even little Ala). I am not a great fan of AGT but they now have a better system than JESC. No way Sary will get defeated by 0.3% of the vote by a Communist under a fake name there!Sara James (Poland 2021) auditioned for America's Got Talent tonight, she got the Golden Buzzer from Simon Cowell
