Redditvision Song Contest 1 was the inaugural edition of the Redditvision Song Contest. It was hosted in Berlin, Germany.

The live show began on January 10th, 2017. On January 13th, 2017, the winner of the contest was revealed to be Denmark with the song "Time Machine", written and performed by Ingrid Michaelson.

Background

An early version of Redditvision appeared on Reddit on 5 December 2016, as the subreddit r/Reddit_SongContest was created by u/UghMarcuz. A call for applications were posted, but no activity was seen on the subreddit in over a month. In the same thread, u/laneyflitt posted on 28 December 2016: "He doesn't seem to have any intention of actually doing it, but I liked the idea. I think I will try doing it." Later that same day, the Redditvision Song Contest was born.

On 13 January 2017, u/UghMarcuz revealed that ten people had applied to participate, and the first semi-final was posted. Three of the participants; u/FlohNumba1, u/Fingrpaint and u/sacmersault has also participated in Redditvision. No news has come from the Reddit_SongContest ever since.

Participants

Eighteen countries participated in the contest. It only consisted of one final, as there were not enough delegates to have semi finals. This was United Kingdom's first and only edition, as they were split into its four constituent countries the consequent editions.

The county and song submission phase lasted for 5 days, and 18 users in total signed up. This was the only participation of u/TrueQuesty.
