Redditvision Song Contest

Redditvision Song Contest 14 was the fourteenth edition of the Redditvision Song Contest. It was hosted in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea following their win in Sapporo with the song "Edge of the Night".

This edition consisted of three semi-finals and one grand final. Each delegate voted in their own semi-final, with two AQ delegates voting in each-semi final. Every country then voted in the grand final.

The live show begun on January 27th, 2018. On January 28th, 2018, the winner of the contest was revealed to be Luxembourg with their song "Ta Peau", written and performed by Charlotte.

Participants

Fifty-five countries participated in the contest. Andorra withdrew due to issues. Two countries, Micronesia and Spain, were unable to vote within the given timeframe during the semi-finals, and three countries, Algeria, Greece and Turkey, were unable to vote within the given timeframe during the grand final. Algeria was in the grand final, but due to their disqualification, their points were reallocated.

Eight users made their debut: u/alexkaragaya, u/alleenmaarliefde, u/Bongo9911, u/Bowman3058, u/ExplainForMe, u/Grayprince, u/TDGlakes and u/qyzxf, who represented Switzerland, Wales, Portugal, Panama, Fiji, Eritrea, Micronesia and Australia respectively.

This edition also saw the return of four past users: u/Spirit697 and u/unfittingquotes returning after a one-edition hiatus, u/DeannaDeesse returning after a three-edition hiatus and u/Plz_Nerf returning after a six-edition hiatus.

This edition also marks the last we saw of several users: u/throwawayravenclaw would not be seen again until edition 20, u/Notorious_Park and u/ollieg99 would not be seen again until edition 19 and u/alexkaragaya would not be seen again until edition 17.

This would also be the last edition we saw u/TDGlakes, u/kontor97, u/ExplainForMe and u/Dumpfbackenbaeckchen. u/feimir would also be retiring their second account, u/Artykoma.

China, East Timor, Fiji, Guinea-Bissau, Senegal and Saint Kitts and Nevis all made their debut this edition.
