It's been two years since Duncan Laurence took victory for The Netherlands with the now viral smash 'Arcade'. Nobody quite knew how the journey to Rotterdam would unfold on that night in May 2019. And whilst I'm sure the journey to the next host city, wherever that may be for 2022, will be filled with a similar shadow of uncertainty and irregularity, we can for one week only, pause and enjoy the wonderful delight and utter fabulousness that is the Eurovision Song Contest.

Every year I feel we say this is the 'semi of death'. But really, this is the semi of DEATH! 16 countries are participating for 10 spots in Saturday's grand final. Australia, for reasons obvious to everyone, cannot be in Rotterdam so will be using the 'live on tape' back-up performance every participating country had to record back in February and March in the unfortunate event they were also not able to travel to The Netherlands. The other 15 countries will hopefully be performing live on stage in the Ahoy Arena.

01. Lithuania: 'Discoteque' by The Roop
02. Slovenia: 'Amen' by Ana Soklič
03. Russia: 'Russian Woman' by Manizha
04. Sweden: 'Voices' by Tusse
05. Australia: 'Technicolour' by Montaigne
06. North Macedonia: 'Here I Stand' by Vasil
07. Ireland: 'Maps' by Lesley Roy
08. Cyprus: 'El Diablo' by Elena Tsagrinou
09. Norway: 'Fallen Angel' by TIX
10. Croatia: 'Tick-Tock' by Albina
11. Belgium: 'The Wrong Place' by Hooverphonic
12. Israel: 'Set Me Free' by Eden Alene
13. Romania: 'Amnesia' by Roxen
14. Azerbaijan: 'Mata Hari' by Efendi
15. Ukraine: 'Shum' by Go_A
16. Malta: 'Je me casse' by Destiny



Use this thread in the run up to tomorrow night's live show, make your last minute predictions, what are the odds saying? And I know that you all will be, but just remember, the artists, delegations and organisers have done SO MUCH to make this possible, so whilst opinions and discussion are encouraged, be kind x

So really, I can see a path to the final for all of these, some of them are very narrow paths, but I can't really rule anyone out as a definite non-qualifier in this selection. But for some predictions I'm going to say...

01. Lithuania: 'Discoteque' by The Roop
02. Slovenia: 'Amen' by Ana Soklič
03. Russia: 'Russian Woman' by Manizha
04. Sweden: 'Voices' by Tusse
05. Australia: 'Technicolour' by Montaigne
06. North Macedonia: 'Here I Stand' by Vasil
07. Ireland: 'Maps' by Lesley Roy
08. Cyprus: 'El Diablo' by Elena Tsagrinou
09. Norway: 'Fallen Angel' by TIX
10. Croatia: 'Tick-Tock' by Albina
11. Belgium: 'The Wrong Place' by Hooverphonic
12. Israel: 'Set Me Free' by Eden Alene
13. Romania: 'Amnesia' by Roxen
14. Azerbaijan: 'Mata Hari' by Efendi
15. Ukraine: 'Shum' by Go_A

Very open semifinal, although my faves are not here. Sweden is probably the best in my books.

Borderline in is North Macedonia. I think it could lend itself well to the live performance and will stand out hugely in this semi. Croatia, Ireland and Romania are borderline out. This is a tricky semi to predict! I really think Azerbaijan are a safe qualifier so I'm surprised they're seen to be out by quite a few people. Croatia would be a shame to lose considering how much better it is than their usual, but it is quite unremarkable and doesn't have anything to push itself ahead of the other female pop bops.

Want, but tbh you could swap out Lithuania for any of the others and I'd be okay with it. This is not the semi of death for me as it is so many others, I have far more I care about in semi 2:

01. Lithuania: 'Discoteque' by The Roop
02. Slovenia: 'Amen' by Ana Soklič
03. Russia: 'Russian Woman' by Manizha

04. Sweden: 'Voices' by Tusse
05. Australia: 'Technicolour' by Montaigne
06. North Macedonia: 'Here I Stand' by Vasil

07. Ireland: 'Maps' by Lesley Roy

08. Cyprus: 'El Diablo' by Elena Tsagrinou
09. Norway: 'Fallen Angel' by TIX
10. Croatia: 'Tick-Tock' by Albina
11. Belgium: 'The Wrong Place' by Hooverphonic

12. Israel: 'Set Me Free' by Eden Alene
13. Romania: 'Amnesia' by Roxen
14. Azerbaijan: 'Mata Hari' by Efendi
15. Ukraine: 'Shum' by Go_A
16. Malta: 'Je me casse' by Destiny


Prediction:


01. Lithuania: 'Discoteque' by The Roop

02. Slovenia: 'Amen' by Ana Soklič
03. Russia: 'Russian Woman' by Manizha
04. Sweden: 'Voices' by Tusse
05. Australia: 'Technicolour' by Montaigne

06. North Macedonia: 'Here I Stand' by Vasil
07. Ireland: 'Maps' by Lesley Roy
08. Cyprus: 'El Diablo' by Elena Tsagrinou
09. Norway: 'Fallen Angel' by TIX
10. Croatia: 'Tick-Tock' by Albina

11. Belgium: 'The Wrong Place' by Hooverphonic
12. Israel: 'Set Me Free' by Eden Alene
13. Romania: 'Amnesia' by Roxen
14. Azerbaijan: 'Mata Hari' by Efendi
15. Ukraine: 'Shum' by Go_A
16. Malta: 'Je me casse' by Destiny


Hard to call but I feel Sweden should be okay, Belgium and Israel may just miss out, could be either Romania or Azerbaijan but both look vulnerable and are only in the picture because of being so late on.
