Funky Loser

This is a wild card in our contest for one of the countries who arrived on the most thankless place in the contest, just beneath the qualified countries. We started with this 'award' when we split up the contest in semi-finals on edition 6 and was announced by a draw. The name of this wild card award 'The Funky Loser' was used from edition 8. The player for United Kingdom always gives his comment by his FunkyThoughts, that's how this award gets his name. From edition 10 the host player had the opportunity to save one country out of the three unlucky songs in each semi-final, this song was no longer chosen by a random draw.
