As of yet, this is the semi i know very few songs.....so among those i know....Lithuania is the best!
interesting to see Birgit Õigemeel is finally in ESC
after 12 points to Lithuania, i want to give 10 for Austria
and just to see the list of countries here....i remember Croatia was poor, but Russia, Ukraine, Montenegro, Belarus, Moldova, Serbia.....very annoying that i really wish to see those countries out and instead of them just one great song from Turkey!

Wow, you give both your 12 points to the Netherlands.  :grouphug:

I think that Denmark is the big favorite in this semi. I will send my ranking soon.

Oh, I can't rank them. I just tell that I like Ukraine and Montenegro more than others.
Maybe it will change after the live performances. I have actually watched all rehearsals :D

Countries in running order:

1. Austria: Natália Kelly - Shine
Good start of the show.

2. Estonia: Birgit Õigemeel - Et uus saaks alguse
Beautiful.  Wish I could understand what she's singing about. I like Birgit's warm voice and I absolutely love the Estonian language.

3. Slovenia: Hannah - Straight into Love
I'll probably forgot this one till the end of the show.

4. Croatia: Klapa s Mora - Mižerja
Not sure why, but this song and the group's attitude on stage makes me think of mariachi that kind of lost their joy of life. That's sad but the song is not bad.

5. Denmark: Emmelie de Forest - Only teardrops
Nice.

6. Russia: Dina Garipova - What if
Sounds like a veritable anthem of Europe, even if we've heard the message so many times before, over and over again.

7. Ukraine: Zlata Ognevich - Gravity
I was expecting a more powerful performance from Ukraine.

8. The Netherlands: Anouk - Birds
Beautiful voice. Different in a good way. 

9. Montenegro: Who See ft. Nina Žižić - Igranka
This song is surprising in a way I can't even explain.  :P Sounds like a montenegrin version of a hit from the 90s. That doesn't make it bad. I'm sure they have their fans.

10. Lithuania: Andrius Pojavis - Something
Nice to watch.

11. Belarus: Alyona Lanskaya - Solayoh
I'm surprised that there is no catchy dance routine. The song is too repetitive for my taste, but it will most likely qualify for the Final.

12. Moldova: Aliona Moon - O Mie
Well done, Moldova! Wish to see Romania being brave enough to compete at ESC with a good song in Romanian as well.

13. Ireland: Ryan Dolan - Only love Survives
I miss the good old times. Ireland can do so much better  :(

14. Cyprus: Despina Olympiou - An Me Thimase
So simple and effective. Beautiful!  :rose:

15. Belgium: Roberto Bellarosa - Love kills
This song sounds so much better in my mind. I just pretend that he sings "love heals over and over".  ;)

16. Serbia: Moje 3 - Ljubav je svuda
Why am I thinking of t.A.T.u. now? They actually sing Love is all around. Those outfits are not to kill for though.  :P



I'd love to see Estonia, Russia, The Netherlands, Cyprus, Denmark, Belgium and Moldova qualifying for the Final.

Sorry to see Cyprus not making it to the Final. I can't believe that none of the ex-Yu countries have qualified from this semi.

Very nice!

First, i'm very happy that the most quality song in this semi and the best one imo, made it - Lithuania!
i'm very impressed by Moldova! this is great, and the best Moldovan entry ever! (obviously same remark for Lithuania)
well this was the weaker SF....after the "fixed draw" which made Turkey quit, i had some feeling something might change...like Russia or Ukraine out for the first time LOL....but still we went in good direction....well the ex-Soviet countries are horrible as always, and this year all the ex-YU countries were horrible as well (the best ex-YU country not participating this year...), so i'm glad all of them are out (though i started like Slovenia at some point)...just big headache we're still with the the big 3 of the Soviet Union...
well done to the Netherlands! finally in the final after consecutive failures. very nice to see also that Belgium made it after almost same fate in the past as of the Netherlands.
among other qualifiers, Estonia is very deserved, but i still don't find anything special with Denmark
and about the other eliminated, Cyprus does not surprise me...well that country was very far from friendly voting, but the song was very boring...about Austria, it's sad, because i really think it should made it to the final, but unfortunately, Austria never got so much friends...so i guess one of Austria or Cyprus was doomed to the last place...or maybe was it Serbia & Montenegro which would be deserved LOL

Go Lithuania! Go Moldova!

I'm happy with 8 out of 10 finalists. Lithuania was a total surprise to me and while it was not in my top 10 I can perfectly live with it in the final. Again Belarus was outside my personal top 10 but since Serbia messed up their entry big time Belarus was just next in line to me. Estonia was another (and lesser) surprise but a totally refreshing one. I like the song and love Birgit's performance.

The only two finalists I can't possibly tolerate are Ireland and especially Belgium. In my opinion they should have been replaced by Croatia and Cyprus. But as long as my Anouk is in the final, I have no serious complaints.  :P

I am very very happy about the results in this semi final. Especially I am happy for The Netherlands, Lithuania, Moldova and Belgium.  :)

This is how I ranked the songs again when listening and watching the semifnal:

1st - The Netherlands
2nd - Moldova
3rd - Lithuania
4th - Belgium
5th - Estonia
6th - Russia
7th - Croatia
8th - Ireland
9th - Austria
10th - Cyprus

11th - Denmark
12th - Ukraine
13th - Belarus
14rh - Montenegro
15th - Slovenia
16th - Serbia


There are several interesting things in the final this year:

1) Right now 5 of 6 ex-Yugoslavian countries are out and I think same will happen to the last one, Macedonia (even if I personally like that song very much). The 6th one, Bosnia-Herzegovina, doesn't even participate.
2) Cyprus is out, so Greece can't give it 12 pts and I believe that also Greece won't qualify.
3) Turkey is not participating.
4) All ex-Soviet countries, and most probably also most of the ones in the 2nd semifinal will qualify, so they will eat votes from each other.

This all means, that there are lots of high points "for sale". I believe that there will be big shocks in final and that Denmark won't win it after all (or if it wins, it won't be a landslide victory).  ;)

Totally agree with everything...will be funny to see the Soviet countries eaten by each other  :laugh:
but with my very objective opinion, talks about Denmark winning in landslide victory are very weird to me! :ohmy: if i had to guess who did well in the 1st semi regardless of the countries, i would think that maybe Netherlands or Moldova won the semi, and Denmark only hardly passed the semi....the song is nothing special and i really don't see anything what's with that and possible victory, if for example Netherlands or Norway were the issue instead of Denmark, then i would understand much more...but still i don't see any other winner but Germany.

Juries never had good taste, and mostly same one as the typical ESC fans (remember Sweden 2008?)  :doh: and good example, or should i say bad example, is that they have left Lithuania out  ::) but on the other hand they did well by blocking all the Balkan mafia  :laugh: however, the televoters weren't so good either, especially by leaving Moldova out, and with such great performance, i really find that strange...
