Eurovision Song Contest 2005, Kyiv, Ukraine (Semi-Final)
« on: June 16, 2007, 02:45:28 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2005, KYIV, UKRAINE (SEMI-FINAL)


The Semi-Final of the 2005 contest was larger than the 2004 Semi-Final.  Moldova and Bulgaria joined the contest for the first time and Hungary returned for the first time in 7 years.  The Lebanon had initially joined and had selected their song, but later withdrew due to financial reasons, although rumours were rife that they withdrew because the broadcaster refused to show the Israeli entry.  So with 25 countries vying for the remaining 10 places in the final the competition was steep.  Iceland were the only country to have a returning artist with Selma returning 6 years after being a runner up.  She fared less well this year failing to qualify.  The 10 qualifiers were Hungary, Romania, Norway, Moldova, Israel, Denmark, Macedonia, Croatia, Switzerland & Latvia.
