i would like to participate
THE pairing draw will take place on or around 21:00 UK time tonight, and will comprise of 3 parts.
The first draw will consist of those who either did not participate in T3, or where one of their partners is no longer participating (Anaconda, Erixi, James, Mina, SilentPrayer and Wiggles). The purpose of this draw is to create pseudo-teams to go into the second draw along with the real T3 teams. This does have an implication that those who are paired together in this part of the draw will probably not be able to forge a team in T4.
Why probably, you might ask? Because of the imbalance in part 2, one of the pseudo-teams will be split, with one member going into Pot A and the other in Pot B. I'll explain more below:
The second draw consists of the old T3 teams, plus the pseudo-teams created in the first draw. As we have 22 participants in T4, but sok, CTP, Teodor and Anette have been pre-paired, that leaves us with 18 candidates - 9 teams - for the draw. We need half of those in Pot A and half in Pot B. Obviously 9 is not divisible by 2, so we need to take 4 teams and one half of one of the pseudo-teams.
To achieve this, 5 teams will be drawn from Pot A. If a drawn team is a real team (i.e. one that participated in T3, as opposed to a pseudo team), both will be entered into Pot A. Assuming at least one pseudo-team will also be drawn, the last drawn pseudo-team will be split, with the first member of the pseudo-team going into Pot A and the other in Pot B. If no pseudo-team has been drawn by this point, the first 4 teams will enter Pot A and we'll keep drawing until a pseudo-team appears.
The third draw consists of the names of the participants who were drawn into Pot B. The names from Pot B will be entered in order of their finishing position in #87. The first name drawn from Pot B will be paired up with the first name drawn in Pot A in the second part. The second name drawn from Pot B will be paired up with the second name drawn in Pot A in the second part, and so on, until we have our teams.
I will need someone to keep track of the pairings etc for me as we go. I hope at least one of you is willing to do this.

You now have until Sunday 19th July at 21:30 UK to negotiate with your partner and decide on your entry. In addition to the song, you must also decide on:
- Team name
- Who will be leader
- Recap time and duration (between 20 and 40 seconds)
You should both send the information via PM to me here. And both sets of information must match.
Remember, you should provide two songs (with recap times for each) in case your first choice is taken or is otherwise unacceptable.
Also, please state which member of your team found the song, who picked the recap time, who came up with the team name and who designed the flag.
HFC to you all.

THE songs are now available online.
Voting should be done via PM here but not until you have green ticks for all the songs on the contest website.
You have until 2nd August to send your votes via PM and until 9th August to send me your audio or video clip. Remember, if you video voted in the past, you will be required to video vote again. If you audio voted in the past, you may send an audio or video vote. Of course, video is always preferred.
Your votes via PM should rank all songs (excluding your own, but including the ones you don't vote for) whereas your clip should only announce your top 10 from 1p to 12p, omitting the usual 9p and 11p.
If you have not made a clip before, I recommend you watch T1, T2 or T3's results shows to understand what to do.
However, this time, you must record your votes in your native language only. But please pronounce the team names in the way they appear on the contest website. Also please provide an English transcript of what you say.
I will use this checklist to inform you as and when I receive the votes via PM (not the clips at this time):
