The Youro Theme Contest 3 will be the third edition of the Youro Theme Contest. The contest will be once again in Nemorya after Asgardia's victory in the 2nd edition.

A total of 32 countries took part in this edition where 3 of them were debuting countries, Graustark, Rockland and Vivland. Kalipolis and Mexerica withdrew temporarily while Vijamar could not compete in this edition due to not voting in the previous edition. Hellheim also did not vote in the previous edition but begged the YBU to remain in the contest. However if the broadcaster fail to vote again then they will be banned from the contest the next 3 editions meaning they could return again in YTC 7. The top 10 countries from YSC 2 were qualified to the final directly while the other 22 countries were split into one semi final, where the top 13 would qualify to the final.

Format[edit | edit source]

Each edition in Youro Theme Contest consist of a theme chosen by the host broadcaster. The following theme or concept will be used for this edition: Afrasia which means only songs from Africa and Asia.

Theme change[edit | edit source]

Originally the slogan/theme of this edition was "Hard Work Pays Off". The idea behind this theme was to encourage people to send more music from stranger or harder countries. The basic idea is that you'll be rewarded for picking a singer from a "hard" country, basically a country that is not seen often in regular contests. The broadcaster of Asgardia gave the following statement and explanation:
Now we know what you're thinking, if someone pick a song from Bhutan they won't win because someone else will just send a killer song from USA right? Well that's where this little twist comes in. With the help of our lovely of the YBU we made 2 categories, EASY and HARD countries. If you pick a singer from a HARD country, you will earn 20% more points than if you would if your singer is from an EASY country. 
Here is a little example:
Let's say player 1 sends a song from the Netherlands, an EASY country. This song scores 110 points. Let's say player 2 enters with a song from Mongolia, a HARD country. That song scores 100 points. Now the bonus comes in, because it's a song from a HARD country. Player 2 scored 100 points but gets a 20% bonus so he ends up with 120 points instead
The following countries are considered easy ones: Armenia, Austria, Australia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brazil, Canada, Switzerland, People's Republic of China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Spain, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Iran, Iceland, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Latvia, Malta, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Russia, Sweden, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine, United States, South Africa

After a brief discussion between YBU and the Asgardian broadcaster, theme of the edition was changed to Afrasia, which means that each country has to be represented by a song by an artist from Africa or Asia. The main reason for this was because most countries chose songs from harder countries especially African or Asian countries. Therefore the bonus system would've been unnecessary and the edition would've been to close to a regular edition.
