GUEST JURY HITS (1985 and earlier)

In 2003, Sechuk.com initiated the idea of holding retrospective Second Chance Contests for the years preceding 1987 (in reverse order). The first of these was held towards the end of 2003 for songs entered in National Eurovision Selections of 1986. 2004 saw the 2nd Retro event take place, this time for 1985 and the event for 1984 took place in 2005 (etc, etc....).

Also started in 2004 (for 1985), Guest Juries for Second Chance Retro have their own Contest 'GUEST JURY HITS' (entering a Hit Song from their country for 1985 voted on by the same juries as RETRO 85, but as a separate Contest). This new tradition continues. (NB - Guest Jury Hits was set up to encourage Guest Juries to vote on Second Chance Retro - it is not intended as a Retro OGAE Song Contest).

Guest Juries for Second Chance Retro are from countries that had no Eurovision Final in the year in question, or did not participate in Eurovision at that time. This Contest allows those nations to share a little of their music from years gone by - just for fun! Remember, the results of these contests work backwards.
