Which Eliminated Act Should Be In The Grand Final

Forty two acts travelled to Kyiv, Ukraine for Eurovision 2017. Now — after two weeks of rehearsals, red carpets, parties and of course the semi-finals — only 26 remain to battle it out in tonight’s grand final. But what of the eliminated 16?

As we countdown the hours to the live show at 21:00 CEST, we want to know: Which semi-final non-qualifiers should be in the Eurovision 2017 grand final?

Are you still aggrieved about the shock elimination of fan favourites Finland and Estonia? Do you miss Montenegro’s madcap antics or Latvia’s psychedelic mind melt? Or maybe you’re still dancing along to Macedonia and Serbia.

Now is the time to tell us who should be in the grand final. So shake off the blues, vote in our poll and share your thoughts in the comments. Your favourite might not have qualified, but they can still have one last chance to shine.

POLL: Which semi-final non-qualifiers should be in the Eurovision 2017 grand final?

  • Georgia: Tamara Gachechiladze, “Keep The Faith”
  • Albania: Lindita, “World”
  • Montenegro: Slavko Kalezic, “Space”
  • Finland: Norma John, “Blackbird”
  • Iceland: Svala, “Paper”
  • Czech Republic: Martina Barta, “My Turn”
  • Slovenia: Omar Naber, “On My Way”

Replace the CGI artwork with flashing lights and lasers (like a rave), put the band on stage, with Jana dancing in the middle of it, and announce her pregnancy BEFORE flying to Kyiv to do all this (again, the public and/or juries have never said NO to a pregnant woman), and Macedonia (2nd semi) would have qualified. But alas; they have become the place where excellent songs go to die on stage.

Finland (1st semi), Estonia (2nd semi), definitely. Iceland would have been my 2nd choice in the 1st semi.

Sorry but Ireland was awful in my opinion. This song brought me back to the worst times of Justin Bieber, including such “masterpieces” as Baby.
I just couldn’t take him seriously, his squeaky boy soprano + behaviour of f**ckin playboy made me laugh sooo hard

From Semi 1: Finland replaces Cyprus Albania should have also made it but I can’t think of who to take out. Perhaps Greece but their Final performance was much better than the Semi so maybe they deserved it. I may be in the minority but I really didn’t like the live performances of “Verona”. Estonia would’ve been much better if they went with Kerli. Iceland could’ve been much better with a more inventive stage show but especially better camera shots. Keep it close most of the time and draw your audience in. From Semi 2 if I had to choose… Read more »

I think the 1st SF was much better than the 2nd.

From the first, I would have picked Finland, Iceland, the Czech Republic and perhaps Albania instead of Australia, Greece (and Poland? Sweden?).

In SF2, I’d have picked Macedonia instead of almost anyone else (Austria, Israel, Romania, Hungary, Denmark, Bulgaria, you name it).

IMO only two non-qualifying acts were ‘robbed’, or deserved to be in the final i.e. IRELAND & GEORGIA ! / (& no, i’m from neither country, just saying!)

However, i’d still rate Portugal & Bulgaria as the deserved top two anywayz (*should’ve placed a bet!*); so… makes no difference really…

I can’t vote for the poll, there is an error or something?
I would certainly vote for Estonia.
They were 6th with the public votes and have been robbed by the jury votes!

It’s now official. Estonia was left out because of the juries (17th place in semi-final 2). People loved them (6th place in semi-final 2).

Really I don’t see anything political about Australia giving UK 12 pts when they haven’t given any to them since they debuted in 2015. Greece-Cyprus I can understand though.

It is probably also preference, but friends give points to friends. Has it ever been different?

From semifinal 2, FYROM-Switzerland-Ireland and San Marino! (Croatia, Netherlands, Denmark and Austria out)

Unlike last year, I’m kind of disappointed with the results of the semi-finals, I would change 6 songs! :/

Finland and Latvia for me.
I love the studio version of the Macedonian entry, but the live performance just does’t live up to it. I wasn’t surprised when it didn’t qualify.

I just thought of the idea of a second final show for all the acts who didn`t make it to the final, so that every artist could compete in a final with an official juryvote and televote. They could call it the “small final” (with just 16 participants), it could be held on friday night and so every artist would get the chance to compete in a final and get international votes and support. Just imagine this for 2017, I wonder if Estonia would really be the definite favourite to win this. And all organizers and TV stations in the… Read more »

I like the idea of giving these guys a second chance, but it kind of take away from the need for the semi finals. Maybe it’s an idea for a Wiwi jam type of thing

Albania, Georgia and Estonia should definitely be in the final.

Honourable mentions to Czech Republic and Latvia.

SF 1 was not AS strong as SF 2 but there where twelve countries that deserved the final, while in SF 2 my qualifiers are set. In SF 1 Latvia and Finland should have qualified (I prefer Latvia) but I don’t know for wo I would swap them. SF 2 was a LOT stronger then the first one, but my 10 qualifiers are set. Croatia, Israel and Austria would be out for Switzerland, Estonia and F.Y.R. Macedonia.

you really liked it???? omg, this song made me laugh so hard, it was just hilarious, and that balloon, it was for providing helium, right?
I even thought it was a comedy entry like Verka or Dustin but then it turned out that they were serious….
this guy should be in memes, he shares the same level of cringe as Rebecca Black or Bieber before puberty

Albania and Georgia for me, I’d swap Australia and Sweden out.

I’d maybe swap FYROM and Croatia for semi 2 but in all honesty I don’t think there were even 10 songs in semi 2 that deserves final whereas 13/14 in semi 1 did

To tell the truth,I was expecting Estonia to be easily in the grand final.It was a huge disappointmen to see not making it.I also liked Serbia and Fyrom much.One of them should be in the final in my opinion.Going back to the First Semi,Finland and Iceland had a quality high enough for my taste.I wouldn’t like to comment on who shouldn’t be in the final.This will be revealed after the results will be announced.But,my friends,this is Eurovision.Unique and also unpredictable!Good luck to all the participants tonight and may the best one win!
