    Wow! I really didn't expect that winner, but I am pleased. Thank you so much, Fred!!!

    The press has voted after today's rehearsal. This is what they think will happen tomorrow.

    I gave my 12 points to Norway.

    I'd be very happy if top 5 looked the same as on FSU. Although I'd like to see Sweden much higher.

    As long as Denmark doesn't win, I'm going to be ecstatic pretty much.

    It looks more probable now... If she retains that look of a deer caught in the headlight, no way she's going to win. I'm kicking myself for giving her douze points...

    Looks like Hungary's the one I'll be crossing fingers for tomorrow, eek. But did better than I expected in the FSU poll! Very happy with the results.

    If the results are close to FSU's votes, I'll be more than happy.
    But really ? Some do like France's song ? I mean I like it because I love Amandine and her kind of "sadomasochiste" song, but I thought noone would appreciate the devious aspect of it

    Can anybody recommend a good Eurovision website, which is updated frequently and has the juicy stuff? I know there's quite a few but a lot of them are rubbish.

    ETA: Semi-Final 2 Dress Rehearsal Report

    Esma's vocals were totally off. There was laughter in the audience after they finished.

    Elitsa's vocals were reportedly quite weak also. Stoyan dropped his drum stick.

    I hope same will happen tonight and neither will qualify.

    FYI, Cezar has waxed his torso (he's going to show a lot of it tonight).

    There was a number of technical and camera errors.

    When Petra was announcing mock semi-finalists, she said 'Macedonia' without 'F.Y.R.' Drama incoming.

    Loreen is going to perform her new single during the final. It's not on her last album.

    Same here. Those would be very decent results indeed.

    She also slouched even worse than Max Aaron.

    It's proper music. Doesn't happen often at Eurovision.

    ETA: I've just read interesting commentary by a Polish dude who is reporting for Polish OGAE.

    If Macedonia qualifies to the final, then it might achieve its highest placement ever because it might get the highest marks from all other ex-Yugo countries being the only finalist from that region. Plus the Roma community throughout Europe is going to probably mobilise to vote for Esma.

    If Macedonia doesn't qualify to the final (I hope it won't!), then the situation will be even more interesting. Ex-Yugo countries always gave the highest points to each other. But if none of them will be in the final, their voting is going to be really unpredictable.

    The videos of the 'big 5 + host' second rehearsals are up now.

    France - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5I1Ru3GdEQ
    This is great. Original voice, very good stage presence, sophisticated song. It would be fantastic if France finished as high as it did in the FSU poll.

    Germany - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9mPA7Max4c
    Oh dear. Vocals off key from the start. I don't get the 'staircase' staging (it's boring), I don't like her costume and she's not the best singer. I think they'll finish outside of top 10, to be honest.

    Italy - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jKrwJ629Sk
    This song really bored me at first but it's grown on me a little bit. He looks like a homeless person. Can't believe his manager allowed him to show himself in this state. He's gonna get a haircut and a shave before the final, I hope.

    Spain - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkyXFopQQZs
    Ok performance I guess but that song bores me so much, I just switched off instantly.

    Sweden - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFBesm4ThiI
    I'm disappointed this didn't place higher in the FSU poll. I am hoping for top 5 in the actual final. I like the choreography is his vocal range is really impressive. Thumbs down regarding the costume though. He looked much better during Melodifestivalen. He looks a bit like an ugly lesbian now.

    United Kingdom - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCkvvSV48KI
    Croaky, old woman's voice. Sorry but that just sounds terrible. And that song is so old-fashioned.

    Amandine is at first a very good live performer. I don't care for her studio albums, but her live performances are always a catch

    I expected better from Cascada. The girl, Natalie, actually sings very nicely...this song was a bad idea. Kind of a shame.

    Which feeds weren't geoblocked on Tuesday?

    Yeah, she must have really pissed someone off at Swedish TV.

    The last few years most of the winners have been performed between the 17-22 mark so it's looking good for Denmark.

    The Finnish tabloids are creating a scandal and conspiracy theory around Finland performing so early. Lots of and the Swedes.

    If I've done my time conversion correctly, the final airs at 4:00 PM Eastern time tomorrow - right?

    I haven't been able to watch any of the semis, but I should be able to see the finals.

    France first??? I was going to reply to MarieM that I thought she actually had a real shot if she hit her performance, based on the semis. Not likely now.

    Eurovision.TV has a non-geoblocked live stream (and should have the semis archived IIRC). Make sure to give yourself a couple minutes to install the Octoshape plugin.
