  1. I predict an Italy vs Belgium TEKO final :)

  2. Well, Switzerland should be happy they reached final 16 anyway.
    A well deserved winner though I don’t see City Lights winning in May at all! Probably another top 10 but in my opinion it’s not top 3 material. My main concern is that it could repeat a SVN 15

  3. I hate Blanche’s über lazy dictation. It’s like her mouth is full of ice cubes, frasing is horrible especially in the first verse. This Lana Del Ray impersonator is not through to next round in Britain’s got talent as she sounds like reluctant teen. Hmmm, Frans 17?

  4. Estonia just scored a very respectable 7.00 from wiwibloggs :)

      • Not as overrated as Switzerland’s 6.81 imo :P

        • All above Portugal. LOL
          The reason being of course that fans of certain sounds gave Portugla 0 or 1 point whereas the more reasonable wiwis still give 2 or 3 points to the songs they don’t like. Alas, the jury being what it is, those scores tell us nothing.

          • Portugal scored very high points too (9 and 8 from William and Deban f.e) but I agree that the “average” esc Wiwiblogg reviewer must have given it low marks cause Portugal’s average is at 6.56

            • I checked the individual marks and there were very few middle scores. Many 10s, 9s and 8s … and many 2s, 1s and 0s.

            • Just as you predicted ;)

            • Btw, they discuss “Perfect Life” in every NDR songcheck. In the first two the experts *cough* said that the song wasn’t special but that we would come 10th-15th anyway because Levina was such a good singer and lovely onstage. Last night was different: They used nice words but more or less told us to prepare for a bottom 3 result. I like honesty. :)

    • Flop material candidates :


      • Azerbaijan is definitely in the possible flop category, Israel and Estonia are definitely not. Armenia, Romania and possibly Austria are the underrated ones here.

        Australia along with Belgium are the big question marks of the first semi. I think his televote has the potential be dismal and he will not be helped by appearing third. That semi will most certainly have one or more shock non-qualifiers (perhaps Cyprus instead of Greece? I don’t believe they will both pass, but I think Demy will do better in the end than OGAEs seem to think)

        As for the Netherlands, they really have the potential to be bottom-3 in the televote of the second semi, along with Malta and Ireland. Like Australia, they will need all the help they can get from the juries.

        • Estonia will do an AUT 16 imo (around #12 in Final imo, given the known flawed performance) meaning lower top 10 in televoting and bottom 10 with juries.
          Israel will do a GRC 14 imo and will end up around #20 in final. Song is void.
          Netherlands could repeat their last year’s result. Top 10 with juries, bottom 7 with televoting in Final.

        • EST will qualify but I can’t see them doing anything remarkable. Cyprus’ qualification, if it comes will not be a shocking event…

          • In that semi it will be very shocking as far as I am concerned. And I can only see them in only if Greece is put.

            • *out

            • I will have to disagree vastly.

            • It is a top10 material already in many polls and in betting odds. I am not saying it is dead certain but obviously it is among the ones to watch. You should leave your personal views aside IMO. Treating MDA dead certain and Cyprus shocking qualifier IMO is quite overstatement.

            • I have seen the betting odds on Cyprus and Latvia- I think Poland, Iceland and Finland are much better bets than those two. As I said I don’t see both Greece and Cyprus in the final as the odds seem to suggest.

            • Eh? Are you sure you are reading the correct thing. All 3 are further down than Cyprus…

            • I know. That’s why I said they are better bets.

            • They aren’t better bets. They are ranked lower…

            • Which means you win more money if you bet on them and they qualify. And since I think they actually have much better chances of passing than either Cyprus or Latvia, I’d bet on them if I did that sort of thing.

            • That’s about profit-making thinking, not predicting the outcome…

            • I am predicting that Finland/Poland/Iceland have much better chances of qualifying than Latvia/Cyprus. Since the market says otherwise right now, if I betted (which I don’t) I’d see that as an opportunity. It’s not about making money because I don’t bet. It is about who I believe the current odds overestimate or underestimate.

            • With the exception of MDA they are doing well. in fact they keep all those countries very close to each other (bar ISL and now POL) and to me it makes sense. Besides, our main argument was about whether Cyprus is a surprising qualifier or not. Based on facts it isn’t.

            • To me it will be surprising based on the acts, songs and possible voting alliances the three countries I mentioned have compared to Cyprus.

  7. A commanding victory and a deserving one that is.

  8. Jamala tied the knot.Congratulations!

    Both William & Deban predict SWE, BEL, PRT, GRC, LVA and POL as qualifiers.
    Then FIN, MDA, AUS, ARM, AZE, GEO, MNE, ISL and ALB in the danger zone
    while CYP, CZE and SVN stand no chance for the moment.

    Semi 2 :
    AUT, HUN, BGR, BLR, EST, NLD and HRV!!! are predicted through.
