San Marino got in. Oh my fucking god. I seriously think they just randomize the results, how on Earth is that possible otherwise? Anyway, I'm happy Australia and Slovenia went through. Too bad for Poland.

Last two songs were the ones I wanted the most for the final. Super reliefed right now. Can’t believe San Marino did it!

Portugal wasn't particularly good guys. I wanted him in because I liked his outfit and dance, but not because of the song.
His performance was pretty weak this time around (the national finals were quite a lot better in almost all regards), but honestly given the amount of utter trash it still should have made it through, same as with Poland.

Remember that the semis have a lot less people voting in them so the fans have more sway in them, and in the Eurovision bubble, San Marino and Estonia are fan favourites, so it's no big surprise they snuck through.
Shame about Poland and Portugal, but I understand that both of them are more divisive (Portugal is extremely avantgarde and people either hate or love it, and for Poland I saw a lot of 'screechy' comments).

Overall though, I'm fairly content with the results, most of the songs I would have put through made it.

I wasn’t expecting a win but being passed over by a generic pop song sang but a dude that looks to be in a middle life crisis and can’t stay in tune is too much for me.

See you next year...

Should enter Ghost for Sweden. Watch evil pope crush them all.


yeah I know Tobias is playing a new character called Cardinal Copia other than the Papa Emeritus evil pope character or any of the other evil popes he "passed the position" onto in his stage acts. We all know the face paint will return though and his current stage character's story will eventually go from Cardinal to the next Papa skull painted evil pope.

Glad my balkan faves made it but Portugal's exclusion from the GF justifies every call for the death of the juries over the years. What is the point if it isn't to elevate acts like Conan Osiris.

That was a pretty shit semifinal to be honest, but I wouldn’t really complain about any of the countries that got through (except San Marino, WTF Europe?). Also props to Iceland for helping us Americans out.

As an halfpolish guy who normally laughs at their normally shitty contribution, I was surprised that I actually could listen through the entire song this year. Everything else sucked even more, and still Poland didn't go through. It's the beauty of Eurovision!

I'm not exactly sure why people are still calling Eurovision to be absolutely terrible. I mean of course it's going to be pop music, that's what sells the most and appeals to most people. And even if it's not a pop genre but something else, such as metal or Hatari's industrial stuff, it has to be leaning more towards pop, and be palatable for both the juries and the voting viewers.
Finland tried a much harder song with Terasbetöni a few years after Lordi won, and they barely made it out of the semi final and finished in bottom 3 or so.
