My favourite last night was Moldova. Made me laugh. Unfortunately Lizzo didn't qualify.
Moldova's entry is properly mad, but great fun. "Hey Ho, let's go, folklore and rock 'n roll!"
Although Norway's banana wolves (yes, really) are equally bonkers.
I couldn't believe Austria didn't qualify because their entry was a proper banger and had the live audience jumping. Oh well.
The sweetest, and perhaps saddest song is Portugal's "Saudade, saudade"; very gentle with a great melody.

Looking forward to tomorrow's second semi final.

Just catching up on Tuesday. Moldova are great!
Interested to see who comes second to Ukraine. Can’t see it being U.K. surprised people think our song is ok? I thought it was utter ste and misses the Eurovision ‘mark’ by a mile.

Last year’s winner was pretty un-Eurovision really.

Who else thinks the UK will score nul points again ?

Has anyone ever scored 0 on two consecutive occasions ?

Some ( even by eurovision standards) bizarre acts in tonight’s semi final.

Not sure if anyone has got Nil two years in a row. It would have likely only been since around 2003ish when the rules changed.

The lowest position songs didn’t qualify for the next year. I think the big 5 were probably exempt from this. So effectively if you got nil points you would be out for the next year.

It was only when the number of entries rocketed that they introduced the semi finals.

We will be top 10 this year.

Just clicked on to the semi final. The Cyprus girl was excruciatingly painfully bad. yikes

Ireland was pretty terrible too. In addition, her Wonderwoman pants were not doing anything for her at all! hehe

Romania were funny. Finland were quite good at the number one spot.

I was thinking it’s more like those paper Ikea light shades.

Crucified some classics here. The woman has a decent voice but ruined by the bloke.

Tonight's semi final summed up the madness of Eurovision. I mean, the Serbia entry........a singer sitting there washing her hands over and over. As you say, WTAF? Meanwhile the very lively Georgian entry doesn't get through, despite a lyric which sounded just like "fk me sideways". I think it was actually "Lock me sideways", whatever that means.

Poland's entry might do well; the guy has a fantastic voice, and whilst I hated it, my son (who's a big Eurovision fan, like me) loved the Belgium effort.

Can’t believe that Malta didn’t make the cut.
Attractive, energetic girl in a sparkly dress, singing a catchy tune. What’s not to like.

Remember , the winning nation hosts it next year.

Who wants that in this economy or climate.

“And the winning is Ukraine. We will see you all next year from an underground bunker”

Eurovision is also the accepted forum for international hatred and buttering up.

I’m sure some high votes will come out of Ukraine for countries are and donating a lot of heavy weaponry.

Brexit though will have the EU citizens vote of disapproval.

Can’t wait to see the judging all unfold.

IMO.

The sooner we pull out if this abomination the better. The annual humiliation is a joke. No one other than Cyprus votes for us.

We could put Adele up and we'd get 'nul points'.

As for the rest, they're either an abysmal attempt at euro-pop, "Let's do this together with peace and love everyone" bks, or a lachrymose wail about a love-lorn Hungarian milk maid who yearns for the caress of her goat herd lover who has been lost high up on the mountain.

Awful business.

Ukraine will win.
