As a geographer I am ASHAMED that I am only now finding out Macedonia got its name changed.
It was consequential but I watched the rehearsal of this semi final live
Needless to say I didn't like any of them and will not remember any of them either.
And since it's only about 4th time ever I watch Eurovision....
Anyway, definite qualifiers are Switzerland, Sweden, Russia and Azerbaijan, aka "pretty boys singing about love". I was promised a naked ass from The Netherlands by TAHbKA, and got instead one of the most boring performances of the evening. Malta and Armenia can't sing to save their lives. Croatia was so hilariously cheesy, I am pretty sure I laughed aloud.
But definitely, the title of "Discovery of the Evening" goes to Macedonia that apparently is now North. How the heck did that happen??? I mean I assume it was to please the most stupid dispute in the history of everything with Greece, but does it mean now it will be accepted to EU or something?
