        How Moldova made it through the jury is beyond me.

        This is actually the first ESC I've seen with a jury, how does that work??

        I liked Moldova, I thought they were pretty original. And let's face it, they were no more batty than what jedward were.

        I didn't really like the song but I think Finland will win because it's 'different' like Germany and Norway in the previous years.

        Also, I hope the British presenters don't do it next year - They wound me up the ENTIRE time. Sarah Cox because she did really awkward interviews and (can't remember the voice over man's name) because he kept talking over the main parts and then saying they didn't have much to say.. Of course they didn't - he just talked through them :/

        Its pretty funny, Jedward are near the top of bookies favourites. Still, France leads with the best odds.

        After the semifinal 2 drawing their final placings, I think some of the countries may drop down the table.
        eg. 5. Hungary 6. Ireland 7. Sweden and 8. Estonia are all upbeat songs and so it may become a bit of a blur.
        14. UK I think has a better chance between 13. Switzerland (cute song) and 15. Moldova (ermm....)

        Can't wait till tomorrow!!

        Yeah, I doubt that. Think most of those figures are based on Irish and UK betting sites, so they're not that accurate. Here's hoping for the top 5 though! In a way would be great to win but I doubt that'd be good economically, queen's visit and obama's are seriously expensive and tough to afford as it is.

        Glad Moldova's through. They're popular here in Romania, and I like the fact that they're nonconformists. In 2006 (if memory serves me right) they were 6th with the song "Bunica bate toba" (translated: Grandma plays drum). Though this year, the song's not that good.

        I tell you: Jedward'll win.
