Nation Song Contest 49 was the 49th edition of the Nation Song Contest and was hosted by both the winner of the previous edition, Ecclestonia, and the 3rd placer from NSC 48, Belvist. The winner was Bokia, who led for most of the voting. The contest was the smallest since the introduction of dual semifinals, with Begonia, Doklea, Kuki-Q, Lafronia, Mylenium Islands, Mysticland, Saint Joe & Southgulfia, United Islands and Zechonia all failing to qualify in the previous edition, and then failing to vote in the final, resulting in disqualification in this edition. In addition, Balearica Island, Celeja, Scorpionia and Vedatistan took a break from the contest this edition. Aleksandrija, Gematria, Nightwishia and Swelatie also sent their last entries this edition.

Controversy Edit

The 7th place in the final was contested between Alinta and Zoidiac, due to some ambiguity in the tie-breaking of the Waiting List Jury's votes. The tie, between Fervorosia, Alinta and Yaponesia was unsolvable by usual means, due to it being numerically completely equal (a single 12-pointer each).

Several solutions had been discussed in the past, though never completely agreed on. Thus, in the case of NSC 49, the votes-collector (Barish, of Effiland) was not informed on how to resolve such a tie. As a result, the tie was broken randomly by scorewiz (in this case, alphabetically).

The previously discussed solutions were

  • Break the tie by the WL-collector's preference
  • Break the tie statistically by final rank prior to the WL votes being added. (observed in NSC 47)

The results would differ depending on the method:

Random (Alphabetical) Method

Nation WL Jury points Final Points # of 10s Final rank
Fervorosia 2 97 6
Alinta 3 94 2 7
Zoidiac 94 0 8
Yaponesia 1 92 9

Preference Method

Nation Effish Votes WL Jury points Final Points # of 10s Final rank
Fervorosia 0 1 96 6
Alinta 4 3 94 2 7
Zoidiac 94 0 8
Yaponesia 3 2 93 9

Statistical Method

Nation Prior rank WL Jury points Final Points Final rank
Fervorosia 6 3 98 6
Alinta 9 2 93 8
Zoidiac 7 94 7
Yaponesia 10 1 92 9

As 7th place was due to prequalify in NSC 50 and this debate was unsolved, both Alinta and Zoidiac were granted prequalification. The solution for unsolvable ties was eventually in agreement with the "Statistical Method".
