TFSC 17 is ongoing

The Future Song Contest (abbreviated TFSC), was a song contest on Youtube. The contest is hosted by Adrià Puigdemont. The contest has currently sixteen editions.



There are a number of rules which must be observed by the participating users. First of all, the user can only enter with one country and one account. Entering the contest by second account is considered as cheating and the user might be punished if the host finds it out. The users have to submit their entry for the next edition while the previous one is ongoing. The singer must have origins from the country that the user selected to represent. Artists with ancestry cannot represent the borrowing countries; for example Lady Gaga cannot represent San Marino or Vatican City and Katy Perry cannot represent Liechtenstein or Luxembourg.

The entry has to be sent through a YouTube or Forum message to the host. However, the host might accept entries through other websites (e.g. Facebook). Submitting songs along with time frame and picture of the artist is not required but it's allowed to do so.


The same voting system has always been used. 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 points are given to ten of the participating countries. Anyone with a YouTube account can vote. Votes only through YouTube comment or message are accepted with some exceptions. Participants can not vote for their own entry but they can vote for their own country if someone else submitted that entry. The voting system of the contest's national selections, which is the selection's host choice, might differ.

Even though a regular edition with semi-finals lasts 15 days (5 days for each show), some editions lasted longer due to some connection problems & other stuff.


Estonia was the first winner of the contest. France was the first country to win twice. Iraq was the first winner outside of Europe, followed by The United States. Cassadee Pope was the first artist to win twice the contest. Also, France became the first country to win two editions in a row.
