Excitement :woo:
I don't have a favourite entry but I did like lithuania's one from last year so I think they might still be my favourite. They seem cool :yy:
This years UK entry seems much better but still not good enough to win
idk one of the favourites probably, that's what happened last year with the guy from the Netherlands lol I didn't like his song (boring :bored: )

I've only seen a few entries, but my favourites so far are France, Ukraine and Lithuania (will they do better than LT United in 2006??).
Of those, France probably has the best chance.

Nope! This is me I never watch the semis!
I admit I did watch the lithuanian and UK entries out of my own interest but all the others are a mystery to me so can't wait to hear them tonight :woo:
:iiam:
Hope you enjoy it too!

Yea i agree :five:
I watched one of the semis once out of curiosity when I was younger, just to see what it was actually like but it didn’t really add much apart from getting to hear some of the songs which didn’t qualify for the final

Finally it's here!!! I usually don't watch the acts before the final so I never know what to expect, though I did see a bit of Germany's entry and don't he look like Pewdiepie :lol:

Maybe someone on Eurovision will explain if the Netherlands is Holland or the Netherlands
Because my parents have always referred to the Netherlands as Holland :iiam:

I've always known it as both but I feel like the Netherlands is more correct, I dunno but I think Holland might be one specific region?
