    Georgia is a waste of space
    I agree Georgia did not have an amazing song but the contest is about more than that. Their staging was on point and that is probably why they got through. The international juries must have liked the crazy staging but I agree the song was not amazing.

    Other songs deserved it...

    Norway, Iceland.
    I think even they know they didn't deserve it. Did you see the surprise on their face????

    What I liked about when we found out that Georgia got in was that the UK commentators went completely silent

    Probably thinking crap we got to sit through that light show again

    Yeah I really wanted Iceland to go to the final. Norway I liked but in my opinion their staging did not help them which was a shame in my opinion but I like the song.

    I wish Norway got through

    I understand why Georgia got through even though it's not my taste. I'm a bit skeptical about Poland though.... they were pretty lucky in terms of what countries could vote, imo

    Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Bosnia and Herzegovina were robbed. Plain and simple.

    Hope Agnete is keeping strong.

    I really want Ukraine to win the whole thing. I think Jamala gives such an emotional performance and you can see how emotionally exhausted by it after all it is a very personal performance for her

    Germany's song is really undervalued. I hope it does well.

    I can see why people think that but I really liked it from the first time i had heard it. I guess her voice is very intersting but it's not like a generic pop song or ballad which has been and is in the contest alot. It stands out to me becasue it's very different.

    Germany does have a good song I think people don't like it becasue it doesn't really go anywhere but yeah I also like the song.

    Ukraine are playing a dirty game, trying to get sympathy votes from the public. NOT GOOD

    I actually liked the song before I knew what it was about but yeah I guess you are right. I don't think it is a dirty game because usually people viewing eurovision on Saterday will not be the hardcore eurovision fans as in the bulk of the viewers will not. They will probably not even know, I want Ukraine to win for being so unique and for their killer staging but I think that it will be a two horse race between Australia and Russia, I think the bookies have it right. But it's Eurovision so you never know

    Yeah I really like Spain and France this year can't wait!!!
    NOt gonna lie though when we saw their preformance in the semi final I was a little worried with Spain's staging in the sense of what the jury will think I don't think it is the best staged song but the song is so strong I hope that the public will vote for it. I mean Spain should do better than last year.

    One other thing I want to mention about Ukraine is that I don't really see it as them playing dirty the more I think about it I feel like she is informing people on th reality of what really happened. Just like Serbia singing about domestic violence both have a purpose to inform. (Love serbia and Israel as well btw)

    Haha yeah I have found that people hate the actual song then love, I think its because the staging makes it more than what it is

    What does that have to do with anything? Anyone who knows anything about the USSR knows that Stalin deported Tartars (and millions of other non-Russians) to Central Asia, it isn't an unknown story. Ukraine never entered a song about the plight of the native Crimean population before - the only reason they're doing so now is because they've lost the Crimea and want it back.
