One response to “Tonight: Eurovision Song Contest goes LIVE!

  1. Hi everyone!

    Finally it’s here, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest Vienna 2015! ;-)

    This is my top 16 of the first semi-final tonight:

    Greece
    Russia
    Serbia
    Estonia
    Albania
    Romania
    Belarus
    FYR Macedonia
    Georgia
    Denmark
    Armenia
    Netherlands
    Hungary
    Moldova
    Belgium
    Finland

    In this semi-final I’ll most likely vote for: Greece, Russia, Serbia, Estonia and Albania.

    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 ;-)):

    Albania
    Armenia
    Belgium
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Georgia
    Greece
    Romania
    Russia
    Serbia

    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 …!
