決勝の手順は何ですか?

Hi everybody. We now have a clear idea of how the final series is going to work in 2014.

While this year we may not have a large number of entries, we’ll still be proceeding on our preferred procedure, maybe without any preliminary finals, but incorporating all the systems we’ll be using in the future. We will have to wait till our entries start coming in to finalise the way our final shows will work.

After last year’s experience, we’re in discussions with YouTube, Google an Facebook about how the voting will work and the public vote will be done via YouTube or Google directly and will be visible to everyone on the voting page. The public vote – which counts 50% towards the final vote – is by country and we’ll know where your vote is coming from, so your vote will count towards a Russian Vote or a China vote or a Colombian vote for a particular artist or song.

As you may know, our competition is a real-life competition, but delivered by the Internet. We have pre-recorded video entries and we will be pre-recording the competitors and their support teams to fit into our finals evening template.

For the finals, we have a (virtual) stadium, the Pacific Song Competition Stadium, it’ll have 30 or 40 thousand (virtual) spectators and a (virtual) room for each entries support teams. You’ll have seen preliminary staging and lighting setup drawings on our Facebook page and we’ll share more pictures as the design progresses each year.

We have a gorgeous and very clever Master of Ceremonies, Ms Laura Tchilinguirian, who will again be guiding us through the evening and the night will be live on a web-stream – URL to be announced – from 1900 on 15th November 2014, Sydney Australia AEDT time (UTC +11). We imagine the show will take between an hour and 3 hours, depending on the number of entries.

The procedure will be as follows: we’ll have the show with all the entries – you’ll see them being introduced by Laura, each act will have their time on stage, with comments by their support teams and the final wrap-up by our host. If possible, your commentary will be in your country’s language, but this will be dependant on us having enough translators or commentators to do this. The default language for 2014 will be English.

Once the show has finished, we will have our juries deliver their verdicts. If you want to know how the voting works – go here – and then it’s the public’s turn. Over the next 24 hours you have your chance to Vote, via YouTube, Facebook or Google. Your vote is by country and will count towards how your Country counts the songs entered. Your country’s Public vote will be counted and the results will be averaged with the official Jury’s vote to determine how your Country voted for the songs.

After 24hours, Ms Laura will come back onto the web stream to announce the winners and their prizes. The results and the final voting numbers will also be available on the Pacific Song Competition website, our Facebook and YouTube pages. We’ll also enable you to get an email announcement, if you so desire.

And that’ll be it for 2014. We hope you have a lot of fun voting for your favorite in the region and look forward to a robust competition in years to come.

To be a juror, you need to be more than eighteen years old. For the full details of the Jury eligibility rules – Jury Rules.
It would also help us to select you if you had some musical background or interest, but this isn’t a pre-requisite.
