The title :lol:. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if Rybak didn't qualify with this piece of garbage of a song...

Btw, there are only 4 countries left which would always qualify from the semi - Russia, Romania, Ukraine and Australia. Until Tuesday, it used to be 5 (Azerbaijan) - will we see more history in the making tonight?

I am rooting against Norway and Sweden. Go Latvia and Hungary! Go drinking wine at 2:00 p.m. on a weekday!

ETA: Meant to say Slovenia, not Latvia.

These hosts are giving the least compelling performance I've seen since the last time Sonia Lafuente skated.

I was over Rybak's fiddle shtick in 2009 and it's even worse this time around

Step 1: Make whimsical faces that make me want to punch you.
Step 2: Mime playing musical instruments while looking happy and smug.
Step 3: Scat.

That's how you make me slam my wine.

Now that's the semi final I know best having voted for this. Keep an eye for Moldova, my most Eurovison song pick of this 2018 batch. It wins the Yodeling prize for me.
Otherwise, go Hungary and Latvia (love her voice)

I love that Romania's entry is "Goodbye" by The Humans. What finished second in their national qualifier? "Song" by The Singer?

I guess that's one way to get around the rule limiting the number of people on stage

Serbia should just send Zeljko Joksimovic every year rather than cheap knockoffs

They read the memo about picking a traditional instrument played by an older person

Mr. Finnice feels Serbia is a good sedative. Fine. Now I can snark chez FSU. But I agree with him.

"We are who we are/ And who we are is who we wanna be."

Someone deserves a Nobel Prize for Literature.

OMG This rap! It makes "Take That" from Teen Witch look like NWA by comparison.

The best rap session since the Fresh Prince from Will Smith

These Vikings couldn't sail across an Olympic-sized pool.

And I love how their "choreography" is slowly walking in place.

They drive me to the kitchen for a glass (bottle) of wine!!!
I had a bottle in front of me before this thing started.

I'm glad that Samoylova got to compete here, but the song is shit and her singing is noticeably off-key.
