It's been suggested since February that Norway has this one in the bag.  Having watched the semis I'm not so sure.  Greece has a big performance with a bad vocal...Ukraine has a huge performance with something that can't even be called a song....Estonia has a wonderful haunting ballad sung beautifully...Iceland has a gorgeous song sung to perfection....UK has Andrew Lloyd-Webber....France has Patricia Kaas...Spain has the advantage of singing last....Bosnia has everything....There is no way Norway is going to have it as easy as has been predicted.

I'd love to see either Estonia, Norway or Lithuania winning ... or Bosnia (maybe I'll watch the esc live one day ... why not next year ?  :D ).

My personal favourite - by a long way - is Iceland....especially after her performance on Tuesday which was sensational.

Well song wise I'd like to see Iceland or the United Kingdom or Lithuania to win now.
Iceland has been my number 1 for a long time. But after seeing the 2nd semi. My #1 of 2009 is Slovakia  :sing: :heart: :sing:
What a lovely song, I'll so miss it in the final  :cry:

In my opinion only 4 countries have any possibilities for the victory. They are in alphabetical order Estonia, France, Norway and United Kingdom.

I am actually now more interested in it which song will be last. Will it be Finland, Ukraine, Germany, Malta or Lithuania? Out of these I hate only Ukraine.

By the way, the music reporter of the local newspaper here in Tampere wrote today:

Even if Patricia Kaas only stood on the stage without singing a word, she would still have more charisma than rest of the singers together.  :)

Hello guys! After first semifinal night my PC dead.  :cry: At only 4 years old.   ::)  Well I will try to repair him, but to be sure that I will have internet today and I buyed a laptop with 2000 RON, that mean something at 500 euro.  :cry: And after many tries finally I was able to connect it at internet. Pfuuuuu, now I am really tired. Sorry for being of topic.
Returning at ESC, my favorites in semifinal 2 were:

1. Latvia
2. Estonia
3. Moldova
4. Azerbaijan
5. Greece
6. Serbia
7. Denmark
8. Lithuania
9. Albania
10. Norway

I hated the Latvian song before and still is not on my taste, but the guy was incredible very good. I was sure he will qualify. Norway disapointed me and if this will win will do it unfair only because was the poll favorite. I would like to see Iceland or Estonia winning tonight or maybe France. And if there will win an uptempo song to win I hope that will be Moldova or Azerbaijan and, if not, Greece. But I guess the winner will be Ukraine or Norway.

Unfortuately, considering how horrendously awful the song is, Ukraine will be nearer the top 5 than the bottom 5 :irked:.  I think last place will be a battle between Finland, Lithuania, Germany & Israel...although I love both the Lithuanian and the German songs.  As for the victory - I see a 5 horse race between Norway, Greece, Estonia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and one of the big girl ballads (Iceland, UK or Malta).

:rofl: How very true - she could stand on stage and fart and she'd still have more class and charisma than the likes of Sakis or Svetlana :doh: :D

This year the level is very high. I dunno that Norway will win and I don't know if this can be a fair winner. I always liked the song, but the stage from Moscow don't help the show of Norway.
