I think the act most likely to win is:

The act I would most like to see win is:



Most disappointing early exit: Armenia's Srbuk "Walking Out". Why is this not in the final? WHY?

Second most disappointing early exit: Romania's Ester Peony "On a Sunday". See above. In fact, there are several acts from the first semi-final that I would happily have seen ditched in favour of these.

Favourite performance: Iceland's Hatari. Leather corsets! 1990s industrial EBM! Rage-singing! Yes please, this sort of over the top business is the whole reason I got into watching Eurovision. Well, that and the excuse to drink silly cocktails and shout at the television.

Favourite song: Norway's Keiino, "Spirit in the Sky". Apparently it was the most downloaded song on Spotify in the UK after the second semi-final. Two of those downloads were from this household. We are enthralled by the fantastic vocal stylings of Sami rapper Fred-Rene Buljo.
