Almost two weeks ago, we launched the inaugural wiwivision – our alternative song contest. The aim was to banish those post-Eurovision blues, and it seems to have worked. Y’all voted in your thousands and went crazy in the comment box. The wiwibloggs team may have picked the entries, but you were all determined to make your opinions known! After counting a whopping 4,911 votes overall, we can now confirm that the results of the second semi-final are in! Have your favourites made it through to the grand final? Remember, the poll only accounted for half the vote, with the remainder coming from the Wiwi Jury.

Yeah! All my favourites are going to the final. My big favs are Ireland, Norway & Switzerland.
Glad Ireland qualified!
I loved the song from Lithuania! I didn’t knew this singer!
Great song, and the best of wiwivision, I can’t stop listening!
Btw, Ireland is great too 🙂
Poland’s song is hella beautiful but that guy’s aesthetic completely kills it
Lithuania and Ireland were the only standouts here
maybe Portugal/Cyprus/Czech Republic
The songs were much weaker in this semi. Shame Montenegro did not get through.
Got 8/10. Slovenia was my 10th, so I can’t say the disqualification bothers me really. But, Czech Republic was my 1st, and I think it was a fantastic song, really a bummer that it didn’t sail through. I also think Latvia and Cyprus are mediocre, but they aren’t actually bad.
Oh that adorable actress on the first wiwi meme named Alex Kingston had played on the popular medical tv show *ER* <3
I loved her as doctor Elizabeth Corday <3
Stefani of GeneAologY reminded me of that asian doctor of ER <3 😉
Well i didn’t manage to listen the songs of the 2nd SF for reasons..
So i didn’t vote unfortunately on this SF..
But i will vote on the final 4 sure..
Glad Cyprus qualified
Yay for Lithuania!
Lithuania the best here. GJan is an amazing singer I’ve been listening since her career began. Nobody Around is her best song followed by Hypocrate. I even have it on my personal top 10 song chart last few weeks
8 out of 10 correctly guessed – yay
7 out of 10 this time around. Would’ve swapped Sweden, Cyprus and Latvia out for Czech Republic, Azerbaijan and Montenegro, but none of them were ranked too highly for me.
I don’t get the fuss about Lithuania tbh.
Or somebody else, like my favourite (Lithuania), but in the voiting, I think it is Norway
Who won this semi? Norway or Sweden?
