And so onto the second semi final we go. Having managed to correctly predict 9 out of the 10 qualifiers on Tuesday, I wonder what the chances are of me doing it again. I think this semi final is much harder to guess with the exception of a few tracks. So let’s get straight on with my thoughts on who will qualify tonight for Saturday’s final.
SERBIA – Zeljko Joksimovic – Nije Ljubav Stvar – One of the faves, should easily qualify singing like this.
SWEDEN – Loreen – Euphoria – Favourite to win the whole thing, I just don’t see it. Too Katy Perry….
ESTONIA – Ott Lepland – Kuula – I think this is far better as a Eurovision song that Sweden’s.
NORWAY – Tooji – Stay – They were a big disappointment last year, this should fare much better.
UKRAINE – Gaitana – Be My Guest – Big dance number. Ukraine ALWAYS qualify don’t they? 😉
BELARUS – Litesound – We Are The Heroes – This one might just sneak in. Rehearsals sound very good.
BULGARIA – Sofi Marinova – Love Unlimited – A dance track to rival Sweden’s effort perhaps?
SLOVENIA – Eva Boto – Verjamem – A powerful ballad that will qualify with a top performance.
MALTA – Kurt Calleja – This Is The Night – Performance is everything here, if he doesn’t nail it, forget it.
BOSNIA – Maya Sar – Korake Ti Znam – I ran out of choices so plucked this one. I don’t like it.
A much harder pick tonight I think, I don’t think get as many as 9 correct. There may be a couple of shocks and I think that Turkey will be the biggest one. I just don’t think the song is good enough to get through and the singer aint that great either in all honesty; their poorest entry for some time. I’d like Slovakia to get through, but I don’t think Eurovision will go for heavy metal again any time soon. Good track though.
So there we have it, I will of course give my thoughts following the second semi final before previewing the final itself. I hope you’ll join me. Thanks for reading. =)
