Sofia Nizharadze Award 2012


    Hello everyone!

    Last year we started the Sofia Nizharadze Award, the award for best vocalist of the Eurovision Song Contest. The trophy was won by Nadine Beiler, the Austrian representative (if you click her name, you can relive her performance in Düsseldorf). Nadine was the first winner, but of course we may not forget the person who this award is named after: Sofia Nizharadze, the Georgian representative in 2010. You can relive her performance by clicking her name.

    This year, the award is, as promised, back! However, we will have some changes!
    • There will now be 2 awards: 1 for best male vocalist, 1 for best female vocalist!
    • The award can be won by an individual vocalist. Last year, we saw Loukas Giorkas getting eliminated mostly because people didn't think Stereo Mike belonged in the top 10. Therefore, the award can now go to individual artists.
    Some things however will stay the same!
    • There will be 3 qualifiers from semi 1, 3 from semi 2 and 4 from the final. The semifinal nominees may have participated in the final as well. (For example, you can nominate Rona Nishliu from semifinal 1, but also from the final.)
    • The vocalists will first be nominated. When the list of nominees has been determined after a public voting, we're gonna eliminate them one by one until only one is left per category.
    How to vote?
    • You can nominate 3 singers per category, per show. (So 3 female vocalists from semi 1, 3 male from semi 1, 3 female from semi 2, 3 male from semi 2.) Only in the final, you nominate 4 per category.
    • You just post your vote here in the forum. Voting is open for 1 day, and I will count the results.
    So, let's start with nominating the nominees from semifinal 1!

    Before I make my nominations, many of you will know I wasn't there for the whole of either semi final, so I have watched the performances I missed, and can I just say: Switzerland was robbed!

    I thought that, although the song was awful, she performed it rather well.

    the performance managed to be worse than the song itself ^_^ it was a mess in stage, and her voice wasn't either very good but its only my opinion :P

    Well I'm only talking about her voice of course, which I seem to remember thinking was fine at the time. I would watch it again, but You Tube doesn't seem to working for me at the moment :(
