Current spinoff (#168):
AATW Kosovo

Competing themes (169):

Astrological Spinoff: send an artist whose Astrological sign is the same as yours (groups/bands are not allowed or in case of bands only the vocalist counts)
Astrological Randomizer: all the 12 Astrological signs are allocated randomly, and you should send an artist who was born under the sign you were given (groups/bands are not allowed or in case of bands only the vocalist counts)
Chain reaction spin off: there will be two stages. First stage people will say if they're in. Second stage there will be a draw. The first person will choose a song and send the title of the song to person #2 and the second person will submit a song that has in the title at least one same word with the song of the first person (in any language, and words like and, in, on, is etc are excluded), then the second person will send his song to the person #3 and goes forth.
Example:
Person #1: Another one bites the dust
Person #2: Dust in the wind
Person #3: Wind of change
Etc
Covers & Remixes 5: everyone has to send cover or remixed version of a song previously entered in the main contest, including the original versions of songs whose covers or remixes were entered in NSC.
Drugged: title with names related to drugs (medical or heavier stuff)
I Bring You Love spin-off: Simpsons themed/inspired entries
I watch it for the plot: instead of the song, we rank physical attractiveness of the artist
Make a Wish: everyone describes a song they want to hear, for example "I want a kpop song with bagpipes". Then we try to fulfil each other's wishes

Can we please NOT have AATW Ukraine? It won't make Putin withdraw his army.
I don't know about y'all but I find the constant stream of war related news needlessly anxiety-inducing, given that I'm unable to realistically do anything. I feel something bright and colorful, like AATW Caribbean last year, would be a healthy break from reality.

I'm voting for AATW, but 100% sitting it out if it's Ukraine or anything related to current events.

Hey, your opinion is completely valid. We all will deal with the the current issue in different ways. You want to hear nothing of it and I respect that. On my side, I think it would be nice to balance out the awfulness coming from there with a little cultural appreciation and solidarity. Neither way is better than the other.

However, I would hate for you to feel alienated from a contest. I just don't understand why have you’ve gotta be snarky about it? That's not the vibe.

Anyway, I have a sports spinoff song I want to enter and that's been on there for like a year now, so let's go sports!

100% with you - these contests are my escape from a reality that just gets more desperate and soul-destroying by the day, and while I wholeheartedly understand the sentiment behind the suggestion, I would rather a less country-centric theme (that's what I prefer in general with these spin-offs, as more variety of styles and nationalities is fab).

As it is, there are a couple of options here that take my fancy - we'll see if my prayers to the gods manifest a decent outcome here xpray

Just a question, how much does "NSC ESC NF in the style of NSC ESC" differ from the classic recurring NSC NF spinoff? Sounds like it's basically NSC NF 14 but with a country limit.

Participants can send only one national final entry per country.

I feel exactly the same as @dogmeat about what's going on. I've been following the news nearly non-stop for the last week (except at work, altho I have been on the phone to check what's new there as well), and I've started having bad dreams because of it. I live pretty far away from everything, but it's still giving me issues, and I can't even imagine how it is to live close to (or in) Ukraine. xrose But, that's why I want AATW Ukraine. It would give me some balance to all the negativity. On the other hand, AATW Ukraine would be even better as a celebration when this is all over, and Ukraine is once again a free country.

@Ewigkeit I know that you just finished co-hosting Congrats, but maybe you still wish to host another spin-off (moreover it was your suggestion), but just missed my mention somehow. :rolleyes:

And any volunteers maybe would like to host? Pls let us know, if you're interested.

@Veronika Yes, I’d like to give others a chance as I’ve just finished hosting Congrats & irl stuff going on. Sorry if it’s too lame to turn down the hosting offer but hey, it was sort of inevitable given that I suggested 8/11 of the total number of spin-off ideas 5555

I suggest anything National Finals-related to get us warmed up xcheer

You probably want ESC 22 next unless you don’t mind it being held simultaneously with the actual thing. (I don’t personally mind either way though!)
Well a Spinoff takes roughly 2 weeks. I'm looking for 2nd half of April until early May (worst case scenario)..

Pretty sure most of our spin-offs take longer than 2 though…

Usually 1+ week deciding theme and host,
1+ week confirmations (some of which are 2-parters where everyone has to confirm something once and then randomize, and confirm again for the song),
1+ week voting (plus several more for the inevitable extension)

It’s not necessarily a bad thing; spinoffs benefit loads from being relaxed. But the reality is they’re definitely not 2 weeks each. At least these days. I’d say the average spinoff takes longer than the main NSC editions running alongside them.
