  1. It feels inevitable that Italy will win this semi-final, judging by its baffling popularity. It should have been knocked out in the heats. Certainly doesn’t deserve to win. My vote goes easily to Macedonia.

  2. Songwise Macedonia….but performance :/

  3. Italia. :)

  4. Italy!!!

  5. Jana wasn’t bad on stage; not really good either…
    I don’t know, I’m having second thoughts on this. I’ll probably vote for Italy.

  6. Italy…
    I don’t like dance moves and rehearsal for Macedonia..

  7. Thank you everybody who voted for me in Fdlc in the debut participation..I voted for the songs I liked the best without any single bias..

  8. I this point I’m probably voting against Italy no matter who they’re against ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  9. Impossible not to vote the best pop song of the lot! I would go even futher: Oc Ka is the only good pop song from Esc17.

  10. Macedonia, but it won’t have much impact…

  11. My #1 and #2 keeps changing between these two. I think I’ll vote Macedonia as it’s the underdog here

  12. It’s going to be Italy and Belgium in the final. No doubt.

  13. Gabbani bids goodbye to Italy and heads for Kiev with a huge May Day concert in Rome:

  14. Italy down to 1,6:1 in the odds, perhaps among the all-time historic lows. Bulgaria’s odds go up to 10:1 after the rehearsal.

  15. Both songs are in my top 10. However Italy performs its entry in a much more engaging way.
    Voted for ITALIA! ;)

  16. On this day 20 years ago ❤❤❤

  17. This is hillarious: Gabbani and the gorilla train for Kiev in RAI’s ad for Eurovision, titled “Gabbani ready to conquer Europe”

  18. Jana is not the best live performer but she is competing against my No. 42 by quite some margin so of course she gets my vote.

    Today I feel more optimistic that Bulgaria will do this and not allow Gabbani to win in the contest itself so he can take TEKO as a consolation prize for all I care :)

    • It could happen but only with a 250+ margin victory from juries :p

      • Oh so Gabbani will win all 12p around Europe or something in televoting ? lol !
        Nah something tells me after today’s rehearsal Kristian will need much less than that to take the trophy :) But it will be even better if it is a convincing victory for Bulgaria by a big overall margin !

        • Let’s see… :)

        • Well it seems like you are in a desperate need of a 2017 savior :P

          • Well it’s like last year for me – Last year it was anyone but Russia. This year it is anyone but Italy. Yes I can survive with Portugal winning even at worst case scenario – just not Italy.

            Best I can do is use my 20 votes the best way I can to prevent it to the degree I can.

  19. Voted for Italy respecting Francesco’s artistic values. Fyrm’s song is my favourite one of the season.
    Intresting year . AI don’t see the winner. Anyways I’m always sceptic towards possible winners maybe here is why .

  20. Woo been a while, fellas.

    First of all, thanks to Gregor for the fun Aftermath! There was a bit of an issue with my votes (not counting UK’s 2), but overall it was a great way to see all of your hot takes :P

    Second, I did manage to write some blurbs of my thoughts of the songs here (Wiwibloggs style, easier to handle and score in a base from 0 to 10), and I am so glad I managed to do do this year! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1D2_VEUGnqf4irboACNcyPlkoVct2TZGP1F0wyQ0UV9I/edit?usp=sharing

    Third, The ranks of the songs Italy is facing by the second are just higher and higher. Middling Finland, Top 10 Portugal and now Top 5 FYROM. Jana’s growing… but Italy had to take it this time too.

  21. Italy, of course.
