|Internatia Second Chance Contest|
The Internatia Second Chance Contest 24 was the 24th edition of the Internatia Second Chance Contest. The contest took place in Manas, Gandhara, following Yulia Rutskaya's win in the 23rd edition with the song "Appak Suyuu". The contest was held on 12 December 2015 at the Massira Theater, and was presented by Amr Mostafa and Wafaa El Kilany.
Gandhara, along with their national broadcaster RTG, hosted the contest at the Massira Theater in the city of Manas. It was the first time that the Internatia Second Chance Contest was staged in Gandhara. Araz and Kazmi were also reportedly interested in hosting the contest, but both cities pulled out of the bidding phase as they were not able to meet the cost of the venue and promotion.
On 15 November 2015, RTG announced Manas as the host city for the contest. Manas had two possible venues: the International Convention Center, that was also in the race to host the Outernatia Song Contest 9, and the Massira Theater. The contest was held at the Massira Theater, which has an overall capacity of approximately 22,500 people.
Eleven countries participated, enough to use the traditional voting system. Each jury gave 12 points to the best song, 10 to the second best, then 8 to the third, and so forth until the tenth song received a single point. The draw for running order was held on 28 November 2015 in Manas, with Grolskira opening the show and host country Gandhara performing last for a second consecutive time. The contest was open to non-winning songs that participated in a national final. Even if a national final was cancelled, songs from that national final were eligible to enter. Also when a song won a national final, but wasn't sent to a contest, the song could still participate, which was the case with Noxus' entry in the 21st edtion.
The official rules of the Internatia Song Contest were followed. During the Internatia Song Contest, in the event of more than one country scoring the same total number of points, a count is made of the numbers of countries who awarded points to each of the tied countries, and the one who received points from the most countries is placed above the other tied countries. This was not necessary during this edition, as every participant was guaranteed to receive at least one point from every other country. If two or more countries were tied, the sets of maximum points (12 points) each country received was counted. If there was still a tie, the numbers of 10-point scores awarded were compared, and then the numbers of 8-point scores, all the way down the list. In the unlikely event that there would still be a tie between two or more songs, the song that performed earliest in the running order would be placed above the other tied songs.
On 28 November 2015, the presenters of the contest were announced. The contest was presented by Amr Mostafa, a singer and composer, and Wafaa El Kilany, a TV host who worked for important Arab TV channels.
Eleven countries participated in the contest. Nicolas' Neighbour and Republica Libera withdrew from the contest, while Grolskira and Lettuce returned. Kaeros Islands, winner during their last participation in the 20th edition, and Kaledonii, who participated for the last time in the 21st edition, announed their return to the contest, but both countries didn't sent an entry before the deadline.
