Some songs here are awful to the max. Easy to say which are NOT going to qualify (Hi San Marino and Ireland)

This is, IMO, the hardest semi to predict. I think this is where televotes and juries will be very divided. In an ideal world, I want music to be the winner (hi Macedonia) and ear raping dirge (bye Croatia and Ireland) to jog on. There's also lots of fighting for the beige title. This isn't a great semi, it really is a proper shit sandwich.

Ticket sales have been so low for this that standing fan-zone and hundreds of seated tickets have been reduced to €17. I'd buy one but I don't arrive in Kiev until Friday morning!

This semi is excellent, Malta, Lithuania and Hungary are the only three I don't really take anything from. I am so hyped to see Romania and Croatia.

I'm a huge fan of Estonia's this year, would be proper gutted if that didn't make it through, but it seems quite popular so would have to be a shock for it not to.

Romania, Moldova and Netherlands would all be welcome too.

While people dont rate it, i have a bad feeling Lithuania will qualify. San Merino and Ireland will fight for last position.

I hope I'm wrong and Timebelle get through, my main two faves of Anja and OG3NE from this semi look among the safest thankfully *.* I am sure something like Malta or Lithuania will randomly Q and f*** over more faves though knowing Eurovision, but that's part of the fun laugh.gif

Or Serbia or Switzerland for Israel (or Macedonia, but they SORELY need a break so I'd rather they didn't miss out). I've been feeling very alone loving Croatia and Lithuania this time around. Those two and Belarus and Estonia are essentials.

THINK
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


Only songs I'm sure are out are Malta and San Marino, I'm 90% sure Ireland is out but I'm ready for Europe to disappoint me. Wouldn't be surprised to see Macedonia, Hungary or Switzerland in place of one of these and I'm not allowing myself to hope for Croatia, if it gets in it will be making my evening but I've made my peace with it being left behind. I actually thought Austria were a likely non-qualifier but after seeing Cyprus go through I'm feeling like the power of being a guy with an upbeat track will have him be fine.

Am I right in thinking that only 3 of the qualifiers will be in the second half of the final, and the rest will all be in the first half? Almost seems a bit unfair if that's the case...

You are correct. You are however not correct in finding it unfair, because it is simply random chance.

I dont think running order will matter so much this year as all the faves pretty much seem to be first half, I suppose if Bulgaria end up with a late slot it may tip in their favour.

My thoughts at the present time re semi 2

SAFE

Bulgaria
Romania
Netherlands
Israel

SEMI-SAFE

Denmark
Belarus

BORDERLINE IN

Estonia
Croatia
Austria
Serbia

BORDERLINE OUT

Macedonia
Hungary
Norway
Switzerland

DOA

San Marino
Ireland
Malta
Lithuania

Notes:
~The First three songs in a semi have never all qualified so, unless the curse is broken, work on the assumption that at least one of Serbia, Austria and Macedonia will fall short of the mark
~Who the jury vote goes for in this one will be crucial to a lot of these song's chances. I think there's a pretty clear Bulgaria-Netherlands-Denmark top three with the juries but beyond that it really is anyone's game. I wouldn't be that surprised if Croatia manage to push up into the top 5 with the juries just for the technical skill of being able to sing the song in two types of vocal ranges.
~There is both a high Balkan/ex-Yugo contingent and a lot of countries with big Russian speaking minorities or diaspora communities (Ukrain's AQ vote is in this semi plus there's Estonia, Lithuania, Israel, Belarus, Bulgaria and even some of the inland balkans like Serbia and Hungary) so best to keep that in mind when the results come in. That said it's unusual for, say, all of the ex-soviets or ex-Yugos to go through as generally the bloc votes tend to only majorly swing behind one or two. So that probably means one out of Serbia/Macedonia/Croatia is going to bite it.

What it does mean is that there's a big market of friendly votes from the East for Belarus to eat up (especially those that will want something a bit more pacy than Bulgaria) so I am quietly confident that they'll be in.

The singer from Timebelle just gave NOX as bad as Isaiah last night in the jury final just now. Any chance for them is now gone I would say.
