  1. So who will they put first?!

  2. Well we have to see where the countries for the 2nd semi will be allocated. If Israel goes first half I can easily see one of UK, Serbia or Israel.
    Since they put the UK there 3 years ago and they wouldn’t want to get Israel mad at their first qualification in years I can see Bojana welcoming us..!

  3. I think they’d open with Serbia, Israel, or the UK. Serbia most likely, I think.

    Would not be surprised to see Norway, Cyprus, France, or Slovenia go second. But I think Cyprus would be the palette cleanser before/between some of the main contenders.

    Belgium or Sweden finishing the first half, right after the ad break and just before Austria takes things down a notch and leading into the ballads.

    I won’t be surprised if they slot Hungary right before Italy. Would boost that potential winner with the contrast.

    Spain or Romania to close the show.

  4. I think, Lithuania will start again or maybe Australia :) and i also think Spain will end the show x)

    I hope they are nice against Sweden, and let us start as #13 xD
    My votes will go to Estonia, love that amazing song!

  5. Pulling this one out of my ass. I might try to edit it when I’m more awake.

    1-Serbia
    2-Norway
    3-Slovenia
    4-Israel
    5-France
    6-Australia
    7-Armenia
    8-Estonia
    9-Lithuania
    10-United Kingdom
    11-Belgium
    12-Cyprus
    —BREAK—
    13-Sweden
    14-Austria
    15-Montenegro
    16-Germany
    17-Romania
    18-Greece
    19-Latvia
    20-Hungary
    21-Italy
    22-Albania
    23-Azerbaijan
    24-Georgia
    25-Russia
    26-Poland
    27-Spain

    I initially had Belgium playing before the break, but going right before the first break is cursed this year. Plus they had Austria go 11th followed by Germany in 12th before the break last year.

    • This is a very plausible running order.

      Russia is the main favourite, imo. :( Sweden and Italy are the only ones capable of beating them. Let’s see what happens.

  6. Russia is now second behind Sweden.The fact is the big-5 haven’t performed yet.It will be an interesting final.

  7. I can see israel being made to open, after all ORF will see it as a trade off, we gave you what is probably the best possible slot for your song (after 7 ballads, and before 2 more) now in turn ORF can use your fun catchy dance number to open the show.

    Then Spain to close just because it has that really great ending vibe to it.

    However on lyrics, Australia would be a good opener, talking about how Tonight will be so good, just wants tonight, don’t care about tomorrow etc, and Greece would be good to close, One Last Breath, could be taken to mean, literally the last breath of the 2015 contest, ie last song.

    I can see Armenia being put 3rd, ORF want to punish the politics, but can’t put them in 2nd again.

    I think Georgia, being the closest thing to uptempo, they will put in the middle somewhere of the 2nd half to break up the balalds (potentially putting it in the holy trinity of 17-19)

    Sweden they will put around an ad break somewhere, possibly just before one, so during the ads you can all talk about those amazing graphics.

  8. Here it is
