End of the Year Interviews: Part 7

7th part brings another set of interviews.

We are reaching the end of 2017. Generally speaking, which is in your opinion the most important happening, evolution or trend in the World in 2017?

In spite of Trump being the President of U.S.A and some victories of “the rigth parties” in Latin America, I still see the cultural marxism growing and growing and getting more powerful in the countries where it dominates the general culture of the population, being a new and modern expresion of totalitarianism. What is happening in Korea and Japan probably won’t have worse incidents and we will have a quiet Winter Olympic Games.

In sports, sadly, the next year of the Olympic Games is clearly the most boring one and for that reasons I don’t have too much to say.

Fito Paez achieved Argentina’s best ever TISC result at 2017 Open – 5th place

What was your favorite TISC moment of 2017?

After the first break of the Open edition of this year, Argentina was first in the table position, keeping in mind that the best historical position of our country was seventh before the last TISC, I was really in shock with “at least” temporal first place.

Do you have a favorite TISC contest?

It’s difficult to me to choose one… But I choose the Annual of 2016 because I see the best “”average” level of music in my opinion, of course I love those TICS with the definition in the last vote.

Annual or Open?

Its weird because the Open must be better than Annual but, I don’t know why, many users don’t choose the best of their countries, so in practice the Annual has better level and I prefer that over the Open, sadly….

Favorite entry that represented your nation?

“De Musica Ligera” of Soda Stereo is a classic of the Argentinian rock, “Funky” of Charly Garcia is close in my opinion (not in general Argentinian opinion)

Wishes for 2018?

More freedom for the people of world (not in the American way) to think what they want to think, more people and activity in the forum and good results for the Argentinian athletes.

Tangerines – hot topic of 2017 Open

What was your favorite TISC moment of 2017?

12 points for Polish song of course. But I also liked tension when last jury reveal their votes point by point and turning to talking about food again during dinner break.

Do you have a favorite TISC contest?

Every contest has something special what brings good atmosphere between users and fun, so I can’t choose which one contest was my favourite.

Annual or Open?

Annual for me is better.

Favorite entry that represented your nation?

I have two favourite entries, the first one LemON – “Napraw” and latest one Patricia Kazadi, M. Pokora – “Wanna Feel You Now”, but if I must choose one then I pick “Wanna Feel You Now”, in addition this song reached Polish second best result in TISC history and the best when song was choosen by a lone jury memeber.

Wishes for 2018?

I wish everyone happy and healthy year, satisfactory results during Winter Olympics and in other important sport events and peace for world, especially between both Koreas and Russia-Ukraine and no terrorist attacks.

We are reaching the end of 2017. Generally speaking, which is in your opinion the most important happening, evolution or trend in the World in 2017?

It’s hard to say, so many things happened in one year, and I have to say I mostly remember the bad things… So to stay positive, I’ll go with Paris getting the 2024 Olympics. The way we learned it was underwhelming, but finally we got them! I was waiting for this announcement since 2013 when they first talked about the possibility of being candidate for 2024. But I feel like I’m off topic, so I’ll just say that overall the year was pretty bad for the World.

What was your favorite TISC moment of 2017?

The tangerines. And Mariah Carey. It’s really hard to choose one moment though, because the atmosphere is so special and it’s so much fun to participate!

Do you have a favorite TISC contest?

I’d say the first one because, well, it was the first one. I had no idea how it would work, and it was a great surprise and when it was over I felt sad and wanted it to continue, and now we’re almost at the 10th edition!

Annual or Open?

Both.

Corson has achieved the second of the two French podiums thus far – 3rd place at 2015 Annual

Favorite entry that represented your nation?

I’ll go with Raise Me Up by Corson, I still like the song and it had both French and English lyrics, and I still can’t believe it finished 3rd, I didn’t think people would like it that much!

Wishes for 2018?

Personal? To finally find what’s my dream job, to go back studying (this year I’m working because I didn’t know what to study after my first 3 years at the university), and have more self-esteem. And find new amazing songs. Other than that, I want to see great sport moments (who doesn’t) and I can’t wait for the next TISC!
