Here’s some words about the Beautiful World contest.
of all, when they told me how many people had entered, I had to do a quick
double-take. I just couldn’t believe it. The response was absolutely
incredible. 73 videos !! It took over five hours to watch them all!
thing that struck me most of all was the immense enthusiasm and dedication of
every single one of the contestants. It was a very tough job for Connie to
choose the winner, but she made her choice at last. Many congratulations to Viktoria! And also, loads of thanks to Connie for being the judge!
entry to the contest was amazing in its own special way, and everyone brought
their own individual interpretation to the song. In fact, you are all amazing people. Connie is
very lucky (and she herself knows it) to have such extraordinary people as her
fans – not only the people who entered the contest, but all Connie’s fans.
why Connie likes to think of you all as, "not just fans, but friends."
people have asked if we are planning to have any more contests. The answer is
yes, as soon as we’ve got ourselves a bit more organized around here. We have
some very cool ideas, and we’ll let you know about them when we’re ready.
the meantime, I’m interested to know if any of you out there has any ideas for
contests you’d like to see. If you do, then the best way to reply to me is to leave a comment on this
blog post, or you could send a message to Connie’s YouTube inbox. Either way, I’ll
be sure to see it. I can’t guarantee we’ll be able to use all of your ideas,
but we’d love to see them anyway. So
get your thinking caps on!
