Are you all ready to go again? The first semi final was like deltävling 4, aka, the heat of death at Melodifestivalen, throwing up one of the most shocking Eurovision DNQs EVER in the form of Iceland. Greece and Bosnia & Herzegovina also lost their 100% qualification records, BUT the Czech Republic finally made the Eurovision final, meaning all current active Eurovision nations have appeared in the final at least once! But we can't dwell on Tuesday's results for too long as tonight, another 18 countries take to the stage, all hoping for one of the last 10 places in the grand final. Viewers in the UK will be allowed to vote tonight, along with the competing nations, Germany and Italy. You only have 20 votes though, so use them wisely!

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 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

I am super excited for Dami Im tonight. Double header with Slovenia is the bit I'm really looking forward to. Hoping both can go through, but realistically am not expecting Slovenia to make it.

Adam, did you just decide to go Yes/No/Yes/No etc all the way through, or was this a thought-out process? laugh.gif

And I am super nervous for Agnete tonight. I was a bit nervous for her before the first semi final, so it didn't help when Iceland DNQ. Surely Frans can't be the only one left representing the Nordics? As I can't see Denmark qualifying....

Missing this tonight, will have to catch up as soon as I am home laugh.gif Hoping for Dami, Poli and Jamala, all of which should do it I think. Well, Dami and Jamala are pretty certain, Poli should be fine I just worry about Bulgaria's horrendous track record but I think it's a good enough pop song that it should do very well.

We're travelling from Manchester to Gatwick as we're watching the jury final live in arena! I literally have every single sodding thing crossed for Poli!

Could be any 10 of 14 really, I don't see Georgia, Albania, Switzerland or Slovenia making it but aside from that it will likely be quite close. If there's to be an Iceland style 'shock' DNQ, I'd imagine it could be Norway, but Agnete should probably manage 8th-10th. Fingers crossed for Macedonia but that will be somewhere between 9th-12th too so it's hard to call it.

Wouldn't mind Slovenia either, but I'm only really bothered my big 3 here. While semi 1 had stronger songs overall, this semi has 3 of my ultimate favourites in Belgium, Bulgaria and Lithuania so if I can get all 3 of them through then I'll be overjoyed (and Serbia too)!

THINK

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 ► 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

This is potentially very risky to have the same 10 I want to qualify as my predictions too (didn't realise that until now), although Pavel has the same 10 so I don't think it is beyond the realms of possibility. However I think Poland and Georgia could easily take away spots from Macedonia, Lithuania and Norway but I think it will be 10 from the 10 I've bolded and Poland and Georgia. The reason I've decided to take Poland out of my top 10 is that Israel's ballad blows Color of Your Life out of the water and Greece and Bosnia's DNQs proved that diaspora only gets you so far. If Poland do qualify then I'm sure Lithuania will do too as their song is the stronger and more jury-friendly of the two diaspora heavyweights in this semi-final, so that would put Macedonia under threat.

Also worth looking at this prediction from an analyst at the Finnish broadcaster, they got 9 out of 10 right on Tuesday and the only one they got wrong - Iceland - was predicted 10th, much lower than anyone else would've predicted. So worth taking a luck at their second semi predictions:



Semi 1 from Tuesday if anyone wants to compare:

I don't know which countries many of those are lmao. What is Venäjä, Alankomaat and Itävalta? I assume Kreikka is Greece?

Oh wait

Venäjä = Russia
Valko-Venäjä = White Russia? (aka. Belarus)

Still not sure about Alankomaat and Itävalta lol.

Yeah I did process of elimination, Alankomaat will be The Netherlands and Itavelta is presumably Austria as that is the only one left.

16 ► Georgia: Nika Kocharov and Young Georgian Lolitaz - Midnight Gold

17 ► Albania: Eneda Tarifa - Fairytale
18 ► Belgium: Laura Tesoro - What's The Pressure

Less of my favourites in this semi but I'm going to really need Bulgaria, Latvia and Serbia through. Georgia would be a lovely bonus if it manages to be a shock. Got several I'm willing out though - even Belarus as though it's my 10th favourite the whole corruption thing + gratuitous wolves is souring me a bit. Though it could be stealing votes from Russia... Could have Israel or Norway through over it and I wouldn't mind.

Bolded Norway 10th, think it'll be real touch and go for that one. Poland and Georgia I feel could also be in contention or even, if the devil's feeling a little playful, Denmark.

Such a great seat for tonight!! I'm right at the left corner of the green room (when you look at it from the stage)

So far of the clips from past entries. By tonight's entries. Verka has had the loudest cheer and Lena has just run her close. Rusiana too
