Darin and Agnes the interval acts!

One of the most popular names in the Swedish music scene will be special guests. Darin and Agnes will perform some of their biggest hits in tonight’s show. They have also both competed in the Swedish pre-selection for Eurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen, in previous years but so far we haven’t seen them competing on Eurovision stage.

As an opening act we’ll see an ‘urban orchestra’ which is made up of dancers. Fredrik “Benke” Rydman and Jennie Widegren have created the choreography which welcomes us to follow the show.

One response to “Tonight: Second semi-final!

  1. Hi everyone!

    YYYYIIIIHHHHAAAA! After the long wait it is finally here: the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest Malmö 2013! I think this is a weaker semi-final in contrast to the first semi-final on Tuesday.

    This is my top 17 of the second semi-final tonight:

    01. Azerbaijan
    02. Georgia
    03. Iceland
    04. Israel
    05. Switzerland
    06. San Marino
    07. FYR Macedonia
    08. Romania
    09. Finland
    10. Malta
    11. Armenia
    12. Norway
    13. Albania
    14. Bulgaria
    15. Latvia
    16. Greece
    17. Hungary

    I’m very disappointed that I’m not allowed to vote in this semifinal! :-(

    Of course I hope that my top 10 qualifies, but I think the following 10 countries will qualify for the final (if that has something to do with the quality of the song or anything else is obviously debatable, but I leave that in the middle ;-)):

    01. Azerbaijan
    02. Finland
    03. Georgia
    04. Greece
    05. Iceland
    06. Israel
    07. Norway
    08. Romania
    09. San Marino
    10. Switzerland

    Let’s see how many countries I correctly predict this time. Last year I predicted 8 out of 10 countries correct.

    Lots of luck to all participants! Do your best and enjoy your moment on stage! Winning is always (a little bit) important, but especially to prove yourself. Don’t forget that all of you are actually already a winner because you have won the right to represent your country at the biggest, most acclaimed, most popular music festival in the world! May the best win! And eventually quality always comes floating to the surface, isn’ it?!

    I’d like to wish everyone who will be watching and will be listening all over the world, lots of listening and viewing pleasure tonight! Enjoy the show, the spectacle, the atmosphere, the magic …!
