  1. It is so typical that the UK have the oldest juror. I don’t know who any of them are

  2. Quite good jury for Serbia!
    We can expect points for Portugal from them!

  5. The German jury is mildly diverse. At least everyone is known here. Adel tawil is among my favourite German language singers:

  6. Good luck, jurors! :)

    P.S. – just checked the odds; Salvador not being there did not harm ‘Amar pelos dois’.

  7. A 16 year old jury member?!!! :o
