Contest overview

Although Denmark had won the previous year's Home Composed Song Contest, the 2012 event was organised by Samuel Bugia and his enthusiastic team in A Coruña, Spain.

Following the monster edition in the previous year that required the use of a semi-final, HCSC returned to a more manageable size, with 20 participants submitting a total of 22 entries - including debuts in the competition for Latvia and Bulgaria. Although officially uncredited, "Invisible Song" was defending champion Tony Søgaard Olsen apparently performing an experiment on HCSC.

Having placed 15th and 13th in his previous Home Composed appearances, Finnish songwriter Tero Aalto made a huge leap forward as "Olen" by Snowclone won a fairly comprehensive victory ahead of entries representing Greece, Italy and Portugal. The voting show can still be viewed on YouTube (part 1 and part 2).

The scoresheet below contains the now-customary votes from the Radio International jury (Gj1.png) and the online public vote (Gj2.png), as well as a jury from the (non-participating) organisational team from A Coruña (Gj3.png).
