Some Words About the Beautiful World Contest

Here’s some words about the Beautiful World contest. 

First 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! 

The 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! 

Every 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. 

That’s why Connie likes to think of you all as, "not just fans, but friends." 

Some 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. 

In 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!

  4. Aww .. that wonderful words. I love the idea to do more contests like this. It's a fantastic idea. I would like to do a contest with the song I sing first Connie. Over The Rainbow, I love that song ... or maybe .. Reach Out ... an incredible song by Connie and Jordan :D

  5. I think another Karaoke contest is also a good idea..
    but this time the contestant should wearing any unique or nice costume, so the winner not just the best singing but also the best costume or the most creative cover or karaoke...
    I think it would be fun to see... :))

    3. Thanks!! But I should say that, actually, it isn't really me who organizes contests - it's a team thing. The Beautiful World contest was Rod's idea, and Marco did most of the organizing of it, while all I really had to do was watch and admire :)
