Deemed to become Asia's biggest music entertainment programme ever, Our Sound - The Asia Pacific Song Contest will be formally launched in the second half of 2009 (I think around July). Asiavision Pte. Ltd. in Singapore bought the rights from the Eurovision and will initially finance the said competition.



As this is a 'franchise' of the iconic, 50 year-old, Eurovision Song Contest, the format is largely the same. T
1. The participating stars will be chosen in National Selections in each country by public vote. National Selections will start in July 2009.
2. The winner of each national preliminaries, either an individual artist or a group, will proceed to the programme’s Grand Final.
3. The Grand Final, scheduled for November 2009, will stretch over an entire weekend, starting with the Performance Show on Friday night and culminating in the Winners Show on Sunday night. Both shows will be telecasted in all participating countries by leading free-to-air broadcasters and worldwide.

Further, voting is via SMS and online. My understanding of the rules in voting is that in the finals, a country cannot vote for itself, it should vote for another. Assuming Eurovision rules will exactly apply.

- 12 points for the favorite participant (of a certain country).
- 10 points to your 2nd favorite.
- 8-1 point to your 3rd to 10th favorites.

The song entry should be original (in any language) and should be performed live. It may be pop, rock, opera, combination, etc.

The competition is likely to be held in Singapore.

15 Asian countries are slated to join the contest in its inaugural year (roughly representing 3 billion people):
Australia
Bangladesh
Cambodia
China
Hong Kong
India
Indonesia
Japan
Malaysia
Philippines
Singapore
South Korea
Thailand
Taiwan
Vietnam

The organizers are planning to increase the number of participants to 33 in the future.

Your thoughts? Who do you think should your country choose to send? What Asian countries you want to join apart from the mentioned?

Is it this Asiavision songcontest? That's stupid. Why not include the whole of Eurasia and make one real big event out of it?



We could bully the US by not including them!

It used to be Asiavision but they renamed it to Our Song - Asia Pacific Contest. That's a good suggestion.

LOL. The 3 billion is largely due to the inclusion of China (1 billion I guess) and India.

Aha, I love Eurovision :') A night full of cheesy euro-pop that everybody in the house watches can never be bad. The UK never win though D:.

I'd be quite interested in watching this, just to see what it's like (: It'll probably have to be on Youtube though.
