Greetings ladies, gentlemen and Woolleys of Avalon! As you're all aware, the contest theme is the Return to Innocence so we are proud to announce that the original seven members who took part in the first edition and still live to tell the tale (Black Daisystan, Davis Island, Moofistan, Nova Nova Scotia, San Minino, Sheepmark, State of the Ark) have all submitted entries! We welcome the veterans, the newcomers and in all, 23 countries will take part in the contest which comes to you live from the capital of Sheepmark, Arvedávgi ('rainbow' in Sámi). The running order was randomised in the early hours of this morning, and then re-randomised due to spelling errors with this as the result: Voting will be open until Friday 4th December 2009 at midnight. Please send your points from 1-7, 8, 10 & 12 to: [email protected]. The results will then hopefully be presented via the mystic and ancient medium of Scorewiz on Saturday evening at 19:00 UTC. All that's left to say is thank you for your participation in this edition, you have proved yourself to be above such squabbles (unlike other so called 'members'), to be here for friendship and to be united through music! We hope you enjoy the show and wish good, sheepy luck to everyone!
