For more information about the 6th WLSC Congratulations and the actual show go to the thread.


Congratulations: 200 Years of the Waiting List Song Contest was a television programme organised by the Griffin national broadcaster - GTV (Griffiniskaja Televisioon) to commemorate the Waiting List Song Contest's 200th anniversary and to determine the Contest's most popular entrant of its last 10 years (191-200 era). Hosted by Peter and Lois Griffin, the event took place at Arrenaa ot Lætingmaaotr, in Frisköptislæting, capital of Färzas - Lætingmaa Principality.

Following the slogan "back to the 90's", the theme of the contest were the memorable moments from the past decade, and graphic design was inspired by the popular patterns, shapes and colours from the 1990's. The show was hosted by one of the most beloved Griffin celebrity families - the Griffins. Members of the Griffin family are the stars of the very popular Griffin television series Family Guy. The show is set in the fictional city of Quahog, and exhibits much of its surreal and dark humor in the form of metafictional cutaway gags that often lampoon Griffin culture.

The results were very close. In the end, the show was won by Ruben representing Tamausia and Deltannor with his hit song Burn Down This Room; Emsfrynt and Svobodnia followed them in the second and third places.

LocationEdit

The celebration was held in Griffin Empire following the series of negotiations among the Waiting List nations. Fretanal Bodan, Griffin head of delegation announced during the live press conference that the contest would take place in the city of Frisköptislæting.

It was proposed by GTV that the contest be held in Arrenaa ot Lætingmaaotr, and this proposal was evaluated by the Natian Broadcasting Union and later confirmed. The Director-General of the venue, Ott Õolaram , refuted rumours of emergency reconstruction of the building, saying: "It will not be required for the show. We now can take up to 12 thousand spectators."
