EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2007, HELSINKI, FINLAND (SEMI-FINAL)


A huge 42 countries took part in the 52nd Eurovision Song Contest.  28 of them in the semi-final vying for only 10 places in the final.  Austria and Hungary returned after missing the 2006 contest.  Serbia and Montenegro also returned, this time as two seperate countries.  Georgia and the Czech Republic made their debuts.  Monaco withdrew from the contest having failed to make it out of the Semi-Final since their return in 2004.  Karolina Goceva returned for Macedonia, 5 years after her first appearance.  Eirikur Hauksson was back for a 3rd attempt this time as a soloist having previously been a member of Icy in 1986 and Just4Fun in 1991.  Evridiki was back for the 3rd time for Cyprus hoping not to finish 11th again.  She didn't as she finished 15th.  Edsilia Rombley was back for the Netherlands hoping to emulate her high finish of 1998, but it wasn't to be as she trailed in 21st.  Olivia Lewis finally made it to the ESC after years of trying to win the Maltese National Final.  Unfortunately for her her perseverance didn't pay off as she finished 25th.  The Czech Repulic's debut was saved from an ignominous start by a single point received from the Estonian televoters.  The 10 qualifiers were Belarus, Macedonia, Slovenia, Hungary, Georgia, Latvia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey and Moldova.

The Czech Repulic's debut was saved from an ignominous start by a single point received from the Estonian's very tasteful televoters. 

Fixed :) :D
