Greeting assorted pophoes and eurohoes (and the two or three of you who just turn up for the week or so that the shows are on, icu2). The real "most wonderful time of the year" is upon us once more and so it's time to partake in the annual tradition of the BuzzJack Eurovision Forum preview contest. In celebration of the powers that be FINALLY granting me mod powers, it was decided that I was the perfect choice to host for the first time since the infamous Molly/Sanna tie in 2014 (remember that? laugh.gif) Together we will follow the format of the semi finals where the ten songs out of 18 with the most points will join the automatic qualifiers of Ukraine, Spain, France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom in the Grand Final. For your consideration, here are the songs:

Semi-Final One

01 Sweden: Robin Bengtsson - I Can't Go On
02 Georgia: Tamara Gachechiladze - Keep The Faith
03 Australia: Isaiah - Don't Come Easy
04 Albania: Lindita - World
05 Belgium: Blanche - City Lights
06 Montenegro: Slavko Kalezić - Space
07 Finland: Norma John - Blackbird
08 Azerbaijan: Dihaj - Skeletons
09 Portugal: Salvador Sobral - Amar Pelos Dois
10 Greece: Demy - This Is Love
11 Poland: Kasia Moś - Flashlight
12 Moldova: Sunstroke Project - Hey Mamma
13 Iceland: Svala - Paper
14 Czech Republic: Martina Bárta - My Turn
15 Cyprus: Hovig - Gravity
16 Armenia: Artsvik - Fly With Me
17 Slovenia: Omar Naber - On My Way
18 Latvia: Triana Park - Line



Semi-Final Two

01 Serbia: Tijana Bogićević - In Too Deep
02 Austria: Nathan Trent - Running On Air
03 Macedonia: Jana Burčeska - Dance Alone
04 Malta: Claudia Faniello - Breathlessly
05 Romania: Ilinca ft. Alex Florea - Yodel It!
06 The Netherlands: OG3NE - Lights And Shadows
07 Hungary: Joci Pápai - Origo
08 Denmark: Anja - Where I Am
09 Ireland: Brendan Murray - Dying To Try
10 San Marino: Valentina Monetta & Jimmie Wilson - Spirit Of The Night
11 Croatia: Jacques Houdek - My Friend
12 Norway: JOWST - Grab The Moment
13 Switzerland: Timebelle - Apollo
14 Belarus: Naviband - Story Of My Life
15 Bulgaria: Kristian Kostov - Beautiful Mess
16 Lithuania: Fusedmarc - Rain Of Revolution
17 Estonia: Koit Toome & Laura - Verona
18 Israel: IMRI - I Feel Alive



Send your votes to me, LexC, in the classic Eurovision style (12 points to your fave, 10 to your second fave, 8 to your third and so on down to 1 point) by 23:59 BST on Sunday 7th May. The results show will follow on the following Evening, the day before the first live show to kick off Eurovision week in style. In addition there will be two preview shows on the plug.dj BuzzJack Eurovision room on Monday May 1st (Semi One) and Wednesday May 3rd (Semi Two) at 20:00 BST on both nights. So if you're one of those strange people in this forum who still haven't heard some/most/all of the songs then these preview shows will be a nice and entertaining communal introduction for you.

BuzzJack, start voting...NOW!

Semi one has more good songs in general but semi two has 4 highlights which overshadow the 12 pointer in semi one. But overall they are balanced

I definitely prefer semi 2 in terms of highlights and 'interesting' moments (Croatia, Romania), and it just so happens that it's the semi 2 plug session that I can be around for biggrin.gif

Bumping and sending out reminders for this shortly as a few of you need to edit your votes and one member of the mod team hasn't even voted yet (and it's not even the one who's got a decent excuse!)

I told you I was waiting to see all the rehearsal clips!!

Also my order changes every 5 minutes - I don't know how or when it happened, but I think this year has ended up stronger than last year!

Done... And I didn't realise how rough Semi 2 was until I got voting. There's well over ten songs I'd gladly never wish to hear again!

So rough in a bad way..? I think semi 2 is very strong and I've come to the conclusion that they aren't very balanced at all. My top five or six in semi 2 are all better than my favourite in semi 1 and I'd happily have thirteen qualifiers from semi 2 with only seven from semi 1.

Barring a couple of songs, it's either extraordinary bland (Denmark, Switzerland) or excruciating (Croatia, Ireland). I know the former are popular on here, but these songs are so bad that they make Lithuania sound palatable. But, just my opinion...
