The 2016 Eurovision Song Contest is rapidly approaching with rehearsals kicking off in less than two weeks! That only means one thing - the return of Buzzvision! LexC has, for some unfathomable reason, prioritised assignments over Buzzvision so has handed over hosting duties to me. This is the first time I've hosted this competition in full after taking over just for the final back in 2011 so it is all very exciting. Without further ado, here are the line-ups for the 2016 Buzzvision semi-finals:

Semi-Final One

01 Finland Sandhja - Sing It Away
02 Greece Argo - Utopian Land
03 Moldova Lidia Isac - Falling Stars
04 Hungary Freddie - Pioneer
05 Croatia Nina Kraljić - Lighthouse
06 The Netherlands Douwe Bob - Slow Down
07 Armenia Iveta Mukuchyan - LoveWave
08 San Marino Serhat - I Didn't Know
09 Russia Sergey Lazarev - You Are The Only One
10 Czech Republic Gabriela Gunčkov - I Stand
11 Cyprus Minus One - Alter Ego
12 Austria ZO - Loin d'ici
13 Estonia Jri Pootsmann - Play
14 Azerbaijan Samra - Miracle
15 Montenegro Highway - The Real Thing
16 Iceland Greta Salme - Hear Them Calling
17 Bosnia & Herzegovina Dalal & Deen feat. Ana Rucner and Jala - Ljubav Je
18 Malta Ira Losco - Walk On Water



Semi-Final Two

01 Latvia Justs - Heartbeat
02 Poland Michał Szpak - Color Of Your Life
03 Switzerland Rykka - The Last Of Our Kind
04 Israel Hovi Star - Made Of Stars
05 Belarus IVAN - Help You Fly
06 Serbia Sanja Vučić ZAA - Goodbye (Shelter)
07 Ireland Nicky Byrne - Sunlight
08 F.Y.R. Macedonia Kaliopi - Dona
09 Lithuania Donny Montell - I've Been Waiting For This Night
10 Australia Dami Im - Sound Of Silence
11 Slovenia ManuElla - Blue And Red
12 Bulgaria Poli Genova - If Love Was A Crime
13 Denmark Lighthouse X - Soldiers Of Love
14 Ukraine Jamala - 1944
15 Norway Agnete - Icebreaker
16 Georgia Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz - Midnight Gold
17 Albania Eneda Tarifa - Fairytale
18 Belgium Laura Tesoro - What's The Pressure



As always you need to vote in the classic Eurovision style for each semi-final, giving 12 points to your favourite, 10 points to your second favourite, 8 points to your third favourite and then so on down to 1 point for your tenth favourite. Please send your votes to me Ryan. and voting will close on Thursday 5th May at 6pm BST. Results will then be presented the same evening. You can just vote in one of the semi-finals if you prefer, but please do your best to vote in both! We've given you just over two weeks ahead of the voting deadline, which is a little longer than normal, so there's plenty of time to listen to every song if you are not yet familiar with them.

Or, if your prefer, you can join us for two official preview shows which will be hosted live on Dubtrack.fm where you will be able to listen to all of the songs as well as get to know the artists through short profile videos (if Eurovision.tv upload them all in time!). The provisional date for the first semi-final preview show is Saturday 30th April at 9.15pm BST and the second semi-final preview show will provisionally take place on Tuesday 3rd May at 8pm BST. Further information will be posted in this thread next week!

Each show will last approximately two hours and will also include the opportunity to listen to the automatic qualifiers (France, Spain and Sweden in the semi-final one preview show and Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom in the second semi-final preview show), which you can also listen to below:

France Amir - J'ai cherch
Germany Jamie-Lee - Ghost
Italy Francesca Michielin - No Degree Of Separation
Spain Barei - Say Yay!
Sweden Frans - If I Were Sorry
United Kingdom Joe and Jake - You're Not Alone

Enjoy! cheer.gif

I think I'm going to vote once my CD arrives on Friday (hopefully) so I can enjoy the preview shows without the pressure to vote! And then my final votes can incorporate what we see from rehearsals biggrin.gif

Yaass. Not sure when I'll be voting in this but I'm pretty set on what is in and out of my top 10s in this semi. The difficulty is where to place the stuff that is on the IN pile

For the preview shows I've had a request to move the Sunday one, anyone that may want to turn up what days would work for you? Would Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th work for people?

3 votes in so far and I have my spreadsheets up and running! cheer.gif Reminder that voting closes on May 5th which is just over a week so not too far away.

More importantly, the Dubtrack preview shows are definitely happening on the following dates:

Semi-Final 1: Saturday 30th April at 9.15pm BST
Semi-Final 2: Tuesday 3rd May at 8pm BST


So either wait for them and then vote or, if you won't be able to make it to one or both of the shows, get listening and voting now!

ALSO, if anyone would find it useful - if you turn up at 7pm I can play all the first semi-finalists again without the little postcards in case you missed them on Saturday!

Results will begin just after 6pm tomorrow evening I hope, so I've given you an extra hour to get those votes in from the original 5pm deadline! kink.gif
