Its the only one with a half-way metal band in it, right?

The semi-finals happen in Germany somewhere in some obscure digital TV channels...

Yes, the guys from Iceland
Don't know if they are bringing the half-naked BDSM dude or not

But if course that I'm hopeful for my fellow countryman Conan Osiris!

Here the ESC is broadcast on national TV as always.
Still a bit thing here, and most people see it as a fun show to watch.
Something different that entertains, regardless of actual music quality or scores.

Let's see how it goes

OK, the semifinal will be shown here on ONE, right after Doctor Who....

(Since Germany does usually buy itself out of the semifinals, we don't really care much about it)

Nevertheless watching the semi-final(s) is another precious chance to listen to the incredible comments of Peter Urban

San Marino to the finals.
Humanity has taken a 180 turn in evolution, if you ask me.

Indeed, that was the worst song there.
But since they don't make the voting results public it's pointless to speculate what happened.
Perhaps they flipped coins or something.

Re #8 above.
Forgot this, just as famous and memorable:
https://www.shure.co.uk/products/microphones/sm58

and some time earlier:
The 55SH
https://www.shure.co.uk/products/microphones/55sh

May well appear tomorrow night.

Strangely none appearing here:


You can see some here though:


Micing a drum-kit is quite difficult I'm told by folk who know about it, but I don't have golden ears.

Hoping for something similar tomorrow...

Listening with one ear. Nothing memorable at the moment.

Same here... until Estonia, it was pretty harmless... but the final songs got some more life.

Nothing against showing some regional productions... but can't they next time please pick Orphaned Land?

Zero points in the public vote for Germany. And I thought I am the only one who compared our song to a lobotomy.

And some rocker attitude points go to Iceland for flashing Palestine flags. Its not like its far away from Tel Aviv.

Congratulations to Duncan Laurence and the Netherlands!

Well done to the Netherlands!

We came bottom, but that is the Brexit factor...

Michael Rice at least got unlimited times more public-vote points (3!) than our contestants

Zero points for Germany is odd.
I guess they scaled the voting % to the min/max of the juri's points...

Netherlands was a good win, it's a solid song with good singing. No complaints here
