Ten days ago, we launched wiwivision 2016 – 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 5,379 votes, 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.

Watch the video below to discover the ten qualifiers. In the interest of both fairness and entertainment, they are listed in random order. The actual ranking and points breakdown will be revealed after the grand final.

Galore22,

you do realize singing in russian or focussing on russian market, does not make you russian. Ani Lorak has every right to focus on that market, she’s worked hard for it, so did Yolka, Vera Brezhneva… still, these three are ukrainian. There are many talented russian singers to represent Russia, no need to look for belarussian or ukrainian ones as well 😉

Leningrad is my top favourite for this wiwivision btw ^^ Go Rasha!

Wiwibloggs, please make a hype about Severina(2006) to represent Croatia again in 2017, she stated that she would love to!!!
She has a new album coming out and it’s going to be epic like always!

Albania and Era Bon Bon the best by a mile, shouldn’t even compete here honestly, from a country with 2 million people she is killing it with 70 milion views so far adding 1-2 millions every day, last performance in Miss USA last week even their DJ’s played Bon Bon during the beauty contest in USA – and yeah she is not from Albania but from Kosovo

Hah, ËLKA is a Russian singer. Of course, born in the Ukraine.
But like Ani Lorak, Polina Gagarine, Sergey Lazarev, Elka sings in Russian, lives in Russia, all does in Russia.

I am so happy for Ireland which is my favorite this year. I am happy that four qualifiers Ireland, Poland, Australia and Latvia qualified as they were the 4 countries I really wanted qualified for the final! 😀

1) Sweden
2) Denmark
3) Ireland
4) UK
5) Poland

I feel if Switzerland would’ve had a music video people would’ve liked it more. Just my suspicion.

I’m really upset Slovenia didn’t qualify. They were actually my favourite song from the entire Wiwivision contest. Oh well, but congrats to Poland and Latvia. I hope they do well in the finals.

Kyllito, there are still Irish fans supporting their own country, their song is nothing special, but OK. But I think Poland will win, there are many liking it and the rest who vote for it just come from Poland. Like with Poland in this years eurovision poll, and Ireland in Wiwivision last year

I think this was the toughest semi-final. Ireland may be the first country to go from first in wiwivision to last the next year. My favorites in this semi-final were Norway and Belgium, then Germany, Latvia, and Ukraine.

@Héctor. I agree that all countries should be reprensented by a hit to be a fair game. But Australia’s song is only a minor hit there and nobody in Europe knows Delta and her song. Germany, Norway or Russia have a bigger hits in their own countries.
Albania, Sweden and Denmark have songs charting in others countries in Europe.
Spain can’t compete with that sadly.

For me the real winner is DELTA GOODREM. Thanks , especially @josh for choosing this song for the Aussie entry.Thanks to you, now I know Delta who is such a good singer, person, with an extremely good voice and character!

I miss Bulgaria and Georgia in the final. On the other hand, I’m happy for the UK, Australia (an already hit and the clear winner this year, though I still think that’s unfair), Lithuania, Belgium and, especially, Germany. It’s sad, but it seems this year any of the 43 songs is going to my play list, there are songs that I enjoy, but nothing more.

I like the results of this semi-final. I’m glad to see Germany, Australia, Denmark, Ireland and Poland (my country) in final. The only country I will miss from 2nd semi final is Georgia – they deserved to qualify (for example instead of Albania)

I would just replace Ireland with Switzerland but otherwise this is promising to be a great final! Although both my favorites got knocked out, I’ll be rooting for Lithuania! Vilnius for Wiwivision 2017!

And I would also rather have seen Serbia in the final than Lithuania, after being my 3rd last year I am very dissapointed at GJan this year.

The only disappointment for me is Serbia not making the cut – and to a lesser extent, my Macedonian pick. It promises to be a great Grand Final, though!

I would rather have seen FYROM instead of Ukraine in the final(yes, I did vote for FYROM, but not Ukraine). But I am fine with rest of the finalists. There are 4 songs that are especially good. My top 4 is:
1. BiH
2. Latvia
3. Australia
4. Czech Republic
But some will probably climb before final.

Again my favorite (Switzerland) didn’t qualify. How am I supposed to vote in the final when my two favorites Switzerland and Azerbaijan weren’t given a spot! I guess I’ll just vote for my other songs I enjoyed that ended up passing. Thank you all who voted for Switzerland!
