“Skeletons” was written by Sandra Bjurman and Isa Melikov, making it the first Azeri entry with an Azeri writer since 2009’s “Always!” It was written for former “doom-pop” artist Dihaj to be Azerbaijan’s entry in Kyiv! The percentages of the results are listed below.

1st place: Azerbaijan – 84 votes (51%)

2nd place: Sweden – 73 votes (44%)

3rd place: Georgia – 8 votes (5%)


This means that Azerbaijan has moved onto the duel stages and that Sweden is eligible for the second chance group. Come back tomorrow for the results of group 11!

  1. Nice! :)

  2. Okay just so you all know too, I HATE THE DUELS THAT ARE SHAPING UP AS WELL AS THE EVENTUAL QUARTERFINAL

  3. 10/10 btw :P

  4. Great 10/10

    SC

    SWE
    ISR
    BLR, GRE

  5. SFs will most probably look like this

    ITA Vs FYRoM
    BEL Vs SWE

  6. Poor TakoTamara …

  7. So Sweden gets a second chance oh well, happy that Azerbaijan made it at least!

  8. Quite a surprise here… 3 songs that I really don’t like,

  9. YES!!!

  10. Well, Azerbaijan is probably the strongest entry of the three, but it is really not something that appeals to me.

  11. I also voted for Azerbaijan, even though I should have probably voted for Sweden since it is going up in my estimation, while the azeri song goes to the opposite direction…

  12. Channel 1 of Russia will not broadcast the contest…

  13. I feel like I don’t even remember voting in this but yay anyways

  14. Breaking news

    Russia have officially withdrawn from Eurovision 2017 and WILL NOT compete in Kyiv!

    • Really? What were their reasons?

    • Cynicism at its best (worst, rather). They knew exactly what they were doing when they chose Smoilova, the main victom of this affair.

    • While I’m upset that it had to end this way, I feel like there’s a silver lining as now we can truly focus on the contest and (hopefully) stop worrying about these scandals. Also, semi-final 2 lost one of it’s giants (Russia, not Yulia) so hopefully it opens up space for another country.

      I really don’t want to see Yulia in ESC next year though. I know this is mean and all, but I just don’t think she’s a very good singer and her success comes from a sob story. I’d rather see one of the artists that was originally shortlisted (Nyusha, Elena, Darya, etc), as they could definitely do some great things. Hopefully the promise of Yulia representing Russia in 2018 falls flat like how Anna Book was promised a spot in Melodifestivalen 2017.

    • Great news. I am delighted they are out. (Sad for Yulia in all of this but Russia brought it upon themselves imo, they had choices and refused everything offered to accommodate them). Everything has to be their way or no way in Everything they are involved in. Ta ra!

      • Except she wasn’t on said “black list” and that list should not have existed in the first place. That’s where the EBU is at fault here. They should have made it clear to the ukrainians when the “black list” issue first came up that they couldn’t host if they insisted on it.

        Nobody would have even known she had visited Crimea if ukrainian officials didn’t make an issue out of it for their own domestic political considerations. It’s not as if the russians advertised it.

        This is a very sad day for the contest.

      • I am sure that if a future host (let’s say the UK) asked Ireland to change their artist for doing something that is politically unpalatable to them, Ireland would have immediately complied or or negotiated.

        I am sorry to say that reading this sort of comments have made me look at this forum in a completely different light. It seems there’s no Eurovision value we all say we care for (like inclusivity for example) that can’t be trampled for the sake of politics without people feeling the slightest discomfort.

        • I agree, but it is still great that there are people with different opinions exchanging those opinions on here. We need to cling to that because it is the only hope we can cling too: Keep exchanging views and opinions. Sometimes I am right and sometimes I am wrong … just like everyone else here. We should listen to and learn from each other because at the end of the day ET is among the most fantastic places in the endless universe of the www, at least imo. We should take each other seriously and first of all think and double-check what we believe in.

    • Hm sad, but they were asking for it. The thing is they kinda succeded in what they wanted to do. Making Ukraine look bad, so they get all of the blame. I am already seeing a lot of backlash that Ukraine has got and this si probably gonna make it worse. I see some that gets it and bashes Russia as well, but not near the hate scale that Ukraine gets atm. The Ignorence is real.

      • Eurovision fans always find something to hate…Now it is Ukraine’s turn😏Russia is just missing one year and that is their choice…It is not like they are gone for good…I don’t get the overreactions for their withdrawal at all…

      • I had hoped for a solution until the last minute but Russia didn’t play this fairly and deserve to be punished severely.
        Ukraine was just dumb in feeding Russian propaganda tricks but being dumb isn’t a crime …

        • Given how tense the situation between the 2 countries is atm,Russia should have the dignity to withdraw in the first plade just like Armenia did back in 2012.It’s not like they’re arguing about some old grudges.The situation there is very real and very dramatic.

      • yeah, the ignorance is huge in many countries without free press

  15. Nice! Azerbaijan is so good! Glad to see Sweden in SC too.

  16. Who do you think will benefit from Russian withdrawal in semi 2????

    • If we still agree that MLT, SMN, HRV and LTV are no-hopers, we only need 3 more songs that won’t make it. Belarus will probably miss 24 points but I still expect Naviband to be good and special enough to qualify without Russia’s support. I’d say that Ireland, Austria and Macedonia will fail but I still hope and pray that Romania will be on a plane back home on Friday.

    • Most likely the countries who normally would finish 11th-13th, so in my opinion the countries that now could almost definitely qualify is Switzerland, Estonia and surprise qualifier either Croatia or Norway?

      In fairness, I hate that the situation between Russia and Ukraine has come to them withdrawing, but on the other hand I’m glad another country gets a shot at going through to the finals. I didn’t like Yulia’s song at all (was my #38 this year) but I can’t help but feel bad for unknowingly letting Russia “use” her disability to avoid people booing them in the arena. Let’s hope they come back with a massive hit next year in Florence 2018! What’s another year Russia, eh? ;)

      • Norway is 50-50 case IMO. SWI fits the description of a surprise Q but I don’t see it happening.

    • The 50/50 cases – NOR, FYRoM, IRL, AUT.

  17. The best song won. The most overrated song of the season, a song about conveyor belts, almost did, which is sad, but not unexpected.

  18. Politcs and ESC have to deal with it each other; ‘Amar pelos dois’ can also be presented with a political twist:

    P.S. – I hope you won’t kill me with all these covers of the Portuguese entry, but they keep on popping up on-line.

  19. The running order of the 2nd semi has now been readjusted at the Eurovision.tv official page: https://eurovision.tv/event/kyiv-2017/profile?round=79#results

  20. The esctoday’s editors voted for the semi final1 and hereare their10 qualifiers:
