So we're still waiting on the last few stragglers (Noted repeat offenders Malta, Russia, Azerbaijan and North Macedonia still outstanding) and Portugal will be all wrapped up around midnight GMT but even then I think we've got a fairly solid idea of what kind of thing those countries are likely to bring - and one thing I think we've missed this year due to the backloading of the song reveals is discussions about the running order/differences between the halves of the semis. So this is what we're looking at

Semi One

First Half

Australia
Belarus
Ireland
Lithuania
North Macedonia
Russia
Slovenia
Sweden

Second Half

Azerbaijan
Belgium
Croatia
Cyprus
Israel
Malta
Norway
Romania
Ukraine

Semi Two

First Half

Austria
Czech Republic
Estonia
Greece
Iceland
Moldova
Poland
San Marino
Serbia

Second Half

Albania
Armenia
Bulgaria
Denmark
Finland
Georgia
Latvia
Portugal
Switzerland

First general observations:

JESUS CRISTO Semi One is the biggest bloodbath I've ever seen at this stage of the game. Australia and Ukraine will have a fight on their hands to keep their 100% Qualification record.

The flip side of that is that Semi Two, specifically the back half of Semi Two has a lot of stuff that you wouldn't call as a definite qualifier. There'll probably be one or even two songs that qualify by virtue of being in the "easier" semi that then do absolutely nothing in the final and help the UK finish 22nd rather than 24th.

Death slot picks: Slovenia (definitely) and Poland (maybe Estonia as an alternative)

North Macedonia (unheard but meant to be up-tempo) or Ireland to open semi 1, Czech Republic to open semi 2

Israel (or Malta if Destiny is bringing an up-tempo) to close semi 1, Denmark to wrap up semi 2


Semi 1 does look like more of a fight even with one less country. I think Australia are at risk, but I’m not too worried about Ukraine. Slovenia, Belarus, Belgium and Croatia are definite NQs I reckon

Latvia closing Semi 2 would really not go well for it, that sort of song needs to be on earlier. I'd be putting Switzerland or Denmark there. Did wonder about Bulgaria but that drama would work very well in 12th or so so I won't call it as a closer.

Most of my favourites are in semi 2 so I'm happy to see that be the one not described as a bloodbath.

Semi 1 is 2018 Semi 1 all over again. I think we just accept now that there will be a lot of upset on May 12th.

Belgium lowkey feels like an accidental last place in the semi to me, a bit like Triana Park like it's not BAD (Line was amaze tho) but it's just gonna fail to grab anyone in many ways tbh. I can see it being between Israel and Malta and ending up totally lost.
