Tonight the second semifinal of this year’s contest will be held in Copenhagen at 21.00. In tonight’s show 15 acts will perform, but only 10 will make it to the final. As in the first semifinal, every country that is not one of the big five or the host country has drawn randomly which semifinal they participate in, and in which half of their respective semifinal they will perform. The producers has then put them into the final running order, so each act will get the best possible outcome.

Tonight’s participants

This is the running order for tonight’s show:

  1. Malta: Firelight – Coming Home
  2. Israel: Mei Finegold – Same Heart
  3. Norway: Carl Espen – Silent Storm
  4. Georgia: The Shin and Mariko – Three Minutes to Earth
  5. Poland: Donatan & Cleo – My Słowianie – We Are Slavic
  6. Austria: Conchita Wurst – Rise Like a Phoenix
  7. Lithuania: Vilija Matačiūnaitė – Attention
  8. Finland: Softengine – Something Better
  9. Ireland: Can-Linn (featuring Kasey Smith) – Heartbeat
  10. Belarus: TEO – Cheesecake
  11. F.Y.R. Macedonia: Tijana – To the Sky
  12. Switzerland: Sebalter – Hunter of Stars
  13. Greece: Freaky Fortune feat. RiskyKidd – Rise Up
  14. Slovenia: Tinkara Kovač – Round and Round
  15. Romania: Paula Seling & Ovi – Miracle

Who can vote?

All of tonight’s participating countries will be able to vote in tonight’s semifinal along with Germany, Italy and United Kingdom which already are in the final. Televotes will be counted as 50% of the final result, while juries from the same countries represent the last 50%. The juries already gave their votes based on last night’s dress rehearsal.

Australia and more “Eurovision Book of Records”

The Australian population has always been huge fans of Eurovision Song Contest, and that is why Denmark wanted them to be able to take part this year. They won’t be able to compete, but they will appear in the interval act with their own show. They have sent the Australian singer Jessica Mauboy to “represent” their country. We will also be able to see great dancers in the opening act, and of course more records from the Eurovision Book of Records. Tonight we will see these categories: most clapslicks and highest note.

  2. YYYYIIIIHHHHAAAA! After the long wait it is finally here: the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest Copenhagen 2014! I think this is a much weaker semi-final in contrast to the first semi-final on Tuesday.

    This is my top 15 of the second semi-final tonight:

    01. Austria
    02. Norway
    03. Ireland
    04. Romania
    05. Slovenia
    06. Israel
    07. Malta
    08. FYR Macedonia
    09. Greece
    10. Georgia
    11. Belarus
    12. Lithuania
    13. Switzerland
    14. Finland
    15. Poland

    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. Greece
    02. Ireland
    03. Israel
    04. Lithuania
    05. Malta
    06. Norway
    07. Austria
    08. Romania
    09. Slovenia
    10. Switzerland

    Let’s see how many countries I correctly predict this time. Last year I predicted 7 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 …!
