Redditvision Song Contest
◄4 5 6►

Redditvision Song Contest 5 was the fifth edition of the Redditvision Song Contest. It was hosted by u/TheDutchDen in Montréal, Canada following their win in Lyon the previous edition with the song "Oublie-moi", performed by Cœur de Pirate. This was the first time the contest was held in the Americas, and the first time outside of Europe.

The live show began on 11 April 2017. After three days of voting, on 14 April 2017, the winner of the contest was revealed to be delegate u/DeannaDeesse and England with the song "Foreign Hands", written and performed by George Ogilvie.

Participants

A total of thirty-three delegations participated in the contest, an increase of eight from edition 4. With the increased amount of participants, it was decided that semi-finals would be introduced to the contest. The top six from the previous edition would automatically qualify to the final, while the remaining countries would have to qualify from one of the two semi-finals. Each delegate voted in their own semi-final, with three AQ delegates voting in each semi-final. Eight countries then qualified to the final from each semi-final.

Seven users debuted this edition: u/_xSyracuse, u/AwesomeJoshua, u/bunbun74, u/LF1MUBRSneedtank, u/SaltyPopcorn02, u/Survivorlover52 and u/therealmatthewlam. It also saw the return of two users, u/blandwhiteguy and u/RealPhali. One user, (u/rita_ho), withdrew and would not be seen again until the 10th edition.

Albania, Belarus, Djibouti, The Netherlands, North Korea, Panama, San Marino, South Korea, Switzerland and Turkey all made their first Redditvision appearance. Estonia and Slovakia returned after a hiatus. Morocco was due to participate, but didn't submit an entry. Djibouti and New Zealand were unable to vote during the semi-finals, and Scotland during the grand final. As a result, the users from these delegations were disqualified from participating in the next edition.

Semi-finals

Semi-final 1

Finland, France and Sweden voted in this semi-final.

Djibouti and New Zealand, both represented by Lemon Demon, failed to vote and were subsequently disqualified. All votes cast towards them were reallocated. It was later revealed that New Zealand had received a total of 65 points prior to their disqualification, and would have qualified in 6th place. Djibouti would have been ranked last with 8 points. Because of the disqualifications, North Korea got to qualify to the final.
