Eurovision 2014 Rehearsals: Day 10 Coverage

Today brings us the last of our semi-final qualifiers in preparation for Saturday’s grand final. Today, I’ll be watching the 3rd dress rehearsal from the arena before returning to the press center for tonight’s live second semi-final. I will update my list of qualifiers later.

  1. My Q prediction for what it is worth in no particular order (only got 7/10 in SF1 so may be best to take no notice):



    Not qualifying


    i think the jury will spoil Greece’s chances of winning just like last year. Despite a cheesy song I think Romania look best placed for the win, although Austria is the obvious dark horse.

  2. YYYYIIIIHHHHAAAA! After the long wait it is finally here: the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest Copenhagen 2014! I think this is a much weaker semi-final in contrast to the first semi-final on Tuesday.

    This is my top 15 of the second semi-final tonight:

    01. Austria
    02. Norway
    03. Ireland
    04. Romania
    05. Slovenia
    06. Israel
    07. Malta
    08. FYR Macedonia
    09. Greece
    10. Georgia
    11. Belarus
    12. Lithuania
    13. Switzerland
    14. Finland
    15. Poland

    I’m very disappointed that I’m not allowed to vote in this semifinal! 🙁

    Of course I hope that my top 10 qualifies, but I think the following 10 countries will qualify for the final (if that has something to do with the quality of the song or anything else is obviously debatable, but I leave that in the middle ;-)):

    01. Greece
    02. Ireland
    03. Israel
    04. Lithuania
    05. Malta
    06. Norway
    07. Austria
    08. Romania
    09. Slovenia
    10. Switzerland

    Let’s see how many countries I correctly predict this time. Last year I predicted 7 out of 10 countries correct.

    Lots of luck to all participants! Do your best and enjoy your moment on stage! Winning is always (a little bit) important, but especially to prove yourself. Don’t forget that all of you are actually already a winner because you have won the right to represent your country at the biggest, most acclaimed, most popular music festival in the world! May the best win! And eventually quality always comes floating to the surface, isn’ it?!

    I’d like to wish everyone who will be watching and will be listening all over the world, lots of listening and viewing pleasure tonight! Enjoy the show, the spectacle, the atmosphere, the magic …!

  3. I am absolutely gutted that Ireland didn’t make it. 🙁 🙁 But hey, we can fall back on the UK this year and hope that they do well if not win it. I just can’t believe it. I am shocked and appalled. I really am. But still, I won’t let that affect my passion for the Eurovision Song Contest. I hope Ireland don’t pull out of next year’s contest. 🙁 🙁
