01. Finland // Darude ft. Sebastian Rejman - Look Away
02. Montenegro // D-Moll - Heaven
03. Slovenia // Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl - Sebi
04. Belarus // ZENA - Like It
05. Hungary // Joci Pápai - Az Én Apám
06. Poland // Tulia - Pali Się (Fire Of Love)
07. Czech Republic // Lake Malawi - Friend Of A Friend
08. Serbia // Nevena Božović - Kruna
09. Cyprus // Tamta - Replay
10. Georgia // Oto Nemsadze - Sul Tsin Iare
11. Belgium // Eliot - Wake Up
12. Australia // Kate Miller-Heidke - Zero Gravity
13. Iceland // Hatari - Hatrið Mun Sigra
14. San Marino // Serhat - Say Na Na Na
15. Greece // Katerine Duska - Better Love
16. Portugal // Conan Osíris - Telemóveis
17. Estonia // Victor Crone - Storm

Cyprus is the obvious opener but the fact that there are only 2 females in the second half and the fact it's quite a contender and usually Song 1 in Semi 1 doesn't qualify so I imagine Tamta will be left as late as possible. Iceland and Portugal could very well be closers but Estonia might be more of a safer bet?

I would die if a song called “Look Away” is chosen to open the live shows

I legit think this order would work near perfectly (LexC is a horn tooter confirmed)...

01 Czech Republic: Lake Malawi - Friend of A Friend
02 Montenegro: D Moll - Heaven
03 Belarus: ZENA - Like It
04 Hungary: Joci Papai - Az En Apam
05 Finland: Darude feat. Sebastian Rejman - Look Away
- AD BREAK -
06 Serbia: Nevena - Kruna
07 Poland: Tulia - Pali Sie
08 Slovenia: Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl - Sebi
09 Cyprus: Tamta - Replay
10 Portugal: Conan Osiris - Telemoveis
11 Georgia: Oto Nemsadze - Sul Tsin Lare
12 San Marino: Serhat - Say Na Na Na
13 Estonia: Victor Crone - Storm
- AD BREAK
14 Greece: Katerine Duska - Better Love
15 Iceland: Hatari - Hatrið Mun Sigra
16 Belgium: Eliot - Wake Up
17 Australia: Kate Miller Heidke - Zero Gravity

- Czech Republic seems like the ideal "get the party started" song to open up the semi with and from their live performances I think they'd really be able to set the energy level for the show. Unintended consequence is they might be a little bit of a sacrificial lamb but
- Montenegro in the death slot because it's what that song deserves
- BLR - HUN - FIN are a good set of "could go either way" potential qualifiers and all have a nice saw-tooth effect. Darude's (kinda) name power merits him being late-ish on but not so much that you'd leave him to the last one in the half so he can go in slot 5 ahead of an ad break which'll be nice following what I'm presuming will be quite an elaborate staging set-up
- From there I worked backwards with Cyprus getting slot 9 and Slovenia being an "interesting" one to slot between two high impact songs with Poland in 7th.
- Serbia's a little buried in 6th but tbh it's got enough friends in this semi that it doesn't really need a good slot.
- Now the 2nd half is...interesting. To me the four "wildcards" are Iceland, Portugal and also San Marino and Australia and I don't think you can run any of those four next to each other or you'll end up with tonal whiplash. So the 2nd half is set up with that in mind. I like the idea of Portugal following Cyprus to signal that the show is "switching gears" and especially the first part of Telemoveis signals that pretty clearly
- Georgia put in between Portugal and San Marino to get memory holed
- After POR - GEO - SAN I think we need something safe but ultimately still poppy and uplifting and Estonia fits that role really well to take us into the 2nd ad break
- The best closer out of what's left is Australia I think, stuff that's usually left-field but still commercial/competitive tends to be the best type of stuff to close on.
- Hatari spaced with a song in between them and the Aussies
- I initially put Greece and Belgium the other way round but in hindsight I think Greece and Australia are a little bit too similar to really work next to each other so Belgium goes in song 16 as a little introspective moment in between the two bits of Euromadness. Greece, like Serbia, is qualifying no matter where it goes so it'll be fine after the ad break.

SEMI DEUX

01. Denmark // Leonora - Love Is Forever
02. Moldova // Anna Odobescu - Stay
03. Sweden // John Lundvik - Too Late For Love
04. Romania // Ester Peony - On A Sunday
05. Austria // Pænda - Limits
06. Switzerland // Luca Hänni - She Got Me
07. Latvia // Carousel - That Night
08. Armenia // Srbuk - Walking Out
09. Ireland // Sarah McTernan - 22
10. Croatia // Roko - The Dream
11. Azerbaijan // Chingiz - Truth
12. North Macedonia // Tamara Todevska - Proud
13. Lithuania // Jurijus - Run With The Lions
14. Malta // Michela - Chameleon
15. Russia // Sergey Lazarev - Scream
16. Albania // Jonida Maliqi - Ktheju Tokës
17. The Netherlands // Duncan Laurence - Arcade
18. Norway // KEiiNO - Spirit In The Sky

Not really many openers in the first half, Luca perhaps but they'll need to space out the peen so gone with Denmark's little shitty ditty. Was difficult to choose between Norway and Malta for the closer but plumped for the former, Malta I think will benefit more from being surrounded by mediocre male ballads than closing the show imo.

Malta-Netherlands-Norway would be a perfect way to end the show with 2-5 being a long ass toilet break.

SAN MARINO closing?! How fun.

On the other hand... dear god at that section from Latvia through to Denmark. At least they separated Ireland. I also like how North Macedonia is nearly at the end.

First thoughts on chances is that this really hurts Finland.

Annoyingly, between 12 and 13 looks like the place where they're putting the ad breaks so that'll dull the tonal whiplash somewhat!

CALM IT. Alexander Rybak opened a semi last year and still managed to win that semi.


Poor Ireland sad.gif Was really hoping that slot would be given to Moldova or Latvia (Romania would've been too unfair I guess as they had it last year)
