USong Song Contest
◄ 2011 50px ► 2013


the USong Song Contest 2012 will be the 2nd annual USong Song Contest. It was going to be held in Ruteria but the future of the contest being held there is shady. It was to be held in Ruteria after Manuel Carrasco won for Ruteria performing Que Nadie. The contest itself is to be held in a date unknown sometime in Summer. There will be many new country as well as many drop outs from the countries no longer being in the league. It was announced late in July 12th that Shayden would officially host despite being observer at time of picking since they were the highest positioned country still able to host. They at the time were a Full Member of the USNW.

In late August, it was announced from the Minister of CAS to Shayden that because of the time delay of making the contest it would take place in Winter.

Venue

Problem With Hosting Country

Ruteria left the Union in January 30th with an uncertain future if they will return, and if so if they will return in time to host. If Ruteria cannot host when it will go one of the countries that is still in the league and made it furthest, though due to communication problems the host could either be Grand, Belluterra and Malo or Shayden.

The return of New Chandler mid-way through 2012 means that the runner-up to last years country is viable to hold the contest if wanted. If not it would go to Grand, Belluterra and Malo or Shayden still.

On the 12th of July it was announced that the contest officially had no host since Grand and New Chandler both could not host. It went down to Shayden and the Minister automatically exclaimed an emergency bid for the contest, until that night when Shayden announced even though they are Observer to the USNW they would host the contest.

In August, Shayden was accepted back as full member making it assured that they will hold the contest yet the start date not confirmed as well as confirmation of any other facts about the contest. On the 19th of August, it was told that Smith City would host the contest yet the stadium at that time was unknown.

Format

Graphic Design

The design of the contest was modelled after the theme of the "Rebirth of Music", inspired by situation of Shayden leaving membership and returning being it's return to the contest like the logo of the contest, a Phoenix. But it was also inspired by the collaborator, the Minister of CAS personally seeing a union tradition in the contest and wanting to continue it after he won the spot in the last election.

The Pheonix was originally going to be based on the Shayden symbol of the Eagle but after drawing the idea up, they decided upon it being a Pheonix instead and kept it to create the theme itself.

Presenters

The Finals were hosted by Shaydian presenter Carolyn R. Bertrand and co-hosted by Aescalian Sir Paul Ely. A voice-over presenter was also used with different countries having their own voice-over presenter.

Voting and Representatives

Voting

The Voting occurred from the end of the show on the 21st to the 27th of January, the result show being aired on the 1st of January for the new year.
