Yesterday we brought y’all an update on who you think will win the first semi-final. Today, we give you an insight into our readers favourites to win the second semi-final.

Since we launched this year’s second semi-final poll on 20 March, more than 18,227 readers have voted for their favourites. Greece has literally rised up in our poll (as they also did on stage today) since our last update on 4 April . They were 3rd in our last update and now hold the top spot. Can they maintain this and will they actually finish first on the 8th of May?

Romania better pay attention, as their Paula and Ovi have dropped two places and are now battling to stay in the top 3. They now hold 2,097 votes (11.5%). Slovenia has dropped a place and fallen out of the top 3, but they are still holding tight! Perhaps Romania’s ‘miraculous’ first rehearsal will help to get them back to the top?

Irelands’ Can-linn feat Kasey Smith continue their astonishing rise. They were fourth in our last update and have now grabbed second place with 4,440 votes (24.36%)! Will Can-linn and Kasey Smith, who ‘went for gold‘ at the rehearsals, be able to outclass Greece?

Teo remains in last place with 178 votes. Georgia has moved up a spot (277 votes) at the expense of Lithuania (232 votes).

You still have several days to vote in our poll, so share the link and support your favourites! You can also read our reviews of all 37 songs on the Wiwi Jury page.

My 3rd and final evaluation of the 2nd round is now complete. Here is how my scorecard ranks them: 1. Norway 2. Romania 3. Macedonia 4. Malta 5. Slovenia 6. Poland 7. Israel (+2) 8. Finland (-1) 9. Austria (-1) 10. Ireland [Ireland in, Switzerland out] And the rest: 11. Switzerland 12. Belarus 13. Greece 14. Lithuania 15. Georgia An excellent video that tells a story relevant to the song can turn a good entry into a great one (case in point, Malta). Likewise, a mediocre video that tells no story can turn a very good entry into a borderliner… Read more »

I am just on Youtube looking at Can-Linn’s video and the comments. Someone said that she is a Rihanna wannbe. Kasey looks alot more like Cheryl Cole to me. Loreen, Mariya Yaremchuk and Tanja are Rihanna wannabes. But anyway Ireland, Greece, Israel and Romania should definitely get past the semi finals.

Interesting to see Teo dead last in this poll, but 7th in the main one, ahead of Israel and Hungary, these are the discrepancies that make me doubt of the legitimacy of some of these results.
Buuuut, I guess that with Greece, Ireland and Romania placing high in almost every poll I’ve seen I think is safe to say they will indeed do well.
From the ones that I’m not so sure will qualify: go Switzerland, Poland and Finland! Also, I know is a long shot but… go Georgia! 😀

You can’t take these polls for serious… Just look what you have here: in the poll “Who will win Eurovision 2014?” Teo from Belarus is in 7th place, but in this poll “Who will win the second semi-final?” he is in last place, so according to this he won’t even be in the final…
