2015 Grand Final Information

The Grand Final of the Pacific Song Competition for 2015 will be held on Saturday 21st November at approximately 1830 AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time – UTC +11).  The judges and public Voting Results will be shown on a webcast on Sunday 22nd November at approximately 1830 AEDT (UTC +11).

More details will be available from June 2015.

¿Cuál es el procedimiento de las finales de?

Hi everybody. We now have a clear idea of how the final series is going to work.

While this year is not going to have a large number of entries, we’ll still be proceeding on our preferred procedure, probably without any preliminary finals, but incorporating all the systems we’ll be using in the future.

We’re in discussions with YouTube (Google) about how the voting will work and the public vote will be done via YouTube or Google directly and will be visible to everyone on the voting page – we’re not sure exactly how this will be done yet, but will advise as soon as we have it detailed. The public vote – which counts 50% towards the final vote – is by country and we’ll know where your vote is coming from, so your vote will count towards a Russian Vote or a China vote or a Colombian vote for a particular artist or song.

It looks like we’re only going to have a few songs to choose between for this first competition, but we have a probably music sponsor, so we’re hoping for some exciting announcements soon.

Whether or not we have an international competition or purely an Australian one, this is what’s going to happen…

As you may know, our competition is real, but delivered by the web. We have pre-recorded video entries and we will be pre-recording the competitors and their support teams to fit into our finals evening template.

For the finals, we have a stadium, the Pacific Song Competition Stadium, it’ll have 30 or 40 thousand (virtual) spectators and a (virtual) room for each entries support teams. You’ll have seen preliminary staging and lighting setup drawings on our Facebook page and we’ll share more pictures as the design progresses.

We have a gorgeous and very clever Master of Ceremonies, Ms Laura Tchilinguirian, who will be guiding us through the evening and the night will be live on a web-stream – URL to be announced – from 1900 on 15th November 2013, Sydney Australia AEDT time (UTC +11). We imagine the show will take between an hour and 3 hours, depending on the number of entries.

The procedure will be as follows: we’ll have the show with all the entries – you’ll see them being introduced by Laura, each act will have their time on stage, with comments by their support teams and the final wrap-up by our host. If possible, your commentary will be in your country’s language, but this will be dependant on us having enough translators or commentators to do this. The default language will be English.

Once the show has finished, we will have our juries deliver their verdicts. If you want to know how the voting works – go here – and then it’s the public’s turn. Over the next 24 hours you have your chance to Vote, via YouTube or Google. Your vote is by country and will count towards how your Country counts the songs entered. Your county’s Public vote will be counted and the results will be averaged with the official Jury’s vote to determine how your Country voted for the songs.

After 24hours, Ms Laura will come back onto the web stream to announce the winners and their prizes. The results and the final voting numbers will also be available on the Pacific Song Competition website, our Facebook and YouTube pages. We’ll also enable you to get an email announcement, if you so desire.

And that’ll be it for 2013. We hope you have a lot of fun voting for your favorite in the region and look forward to a robust competition in years to come.
