Singasong is an annual competition held among active member countries of the Confederacy of Free Regions. It is modelled after the Eurovision Song Contest.

Each member country submits a song to be performed on live television and then casts votes for the other countries' songs to determine the most popular song in the competition. Usually the song is in their nation's official language. Each country participates via one of their national television stations, whose task it is to select a singer and a song to represent their country in the international competition.

The Contest was first proposed by the Shalman Empire and it has been broadcast once every three months since its inauguration in September 2008. Singasong has also been broadcast outside the COFR nations to such places as Singapore and the United States, despite the fact that these countries do not compete. The Contest has also been broadcast over the Internet and the Holonet.

The first season of the Singasong contest took place on September 10 2008, in Bjork City, Shalman Empire, ending on September 18 2008 with the Hiigaran Confederacy as the winner and the host of the Second Singasong contest. The current Fifth Season of the Singasong hosted by Auvergne, the winner for the previous Fourth Season of Singasong, has ended in August 2009, with Auvergne being the winner for it's second consecutive season. Shalman Commonwealth, the runner-up of the Fifth season, will host the Sixth season of the Singasong.

The Hiigaran Confederacy voting in the first Singasong contest

ControversiesEdit

The Singasong has been plagued by participating members being disqualified for not voting. The disqualified participating members are Coulla (First Season), Trimbelina (Third Season), Aeropoli (Third and Fifth season), Rhodea (Fourth Season), and Diesmaran Empire (Fifth Season).

During the Fifth season, host nation Auvergne planned to change the voting system. However, the then Chancellor of the COFR, philly_boy, warned Auvergne not to alter the voting system.

Recent controversies have occurred in particular from the creation of the EAS and new rules set for the contest. Four nations pulled out of the sixth Singasong in protest if the new rules, although all nations but Kingdom of Hypertrophy have now returned to the competition after clarfication was givenm that the new rules were on a trial basis for the sixth Singasong only.
