With the reveal of Armenia’s song on Saturday night, the field for Eurovision 2017 is now complete. We know all 43 entries for the contest, including the 18 that will compete in Semi-Final 1 on May 9. We’ve already asked who your favourite is for the second semi-final and now we want to know your opinion on this one.
Once again, there is plenty of intrigue on the horizon. Their Eurovision histories may be short, but Australia and Azerbaijan both hold perfect qualification records. Will Isaiah and Dihaj maintain honour for their respective country?
Bookies’ favourite Italy is already in the final. But two of the other big names in the odds begin their conquests here. Robin Bengtsson from Sweden and Blanche from Belgium will hope to qualify without much trouble in the first semi. Will it be smooth sailing from the Tuesday show to the bigger one on Saturday?
Latvia will be hoping that Triana Park can prove they don’t need Aminata to qualify, whilst the Czech Republic will strive to make the final for just the second time in their history (and for the second time in a row). Popular online acts like Portugal‘s Salvador Sobral and Montenegro‘s Slavko Kalezic will draw on quirkiness and originality in their bid to make it through.
But it’s time for you to let us know your thoughts! You can find all the songs below and then vote in our poll afterwards. You can vote for as many of the acts as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Make sure you tick all the right boxes before pressing submit.

- Albania: Lindita, “World”

Hey I just wanted to say hello. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d say this to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Cheers!!
Portugal the winner!! Bélgica primera tras su primer ensayo?? Risaaah
In May be comfortable seing PORTUGAL be the winning of juries Votes and be second of fans votes.
The Portuguese Song don’t comperces to any of another Songs in contest because it is a Masterpiece.

My Top 10 in Eurovision Song Contest 2017:
1) PORTUGAL – GREAT MUSIC WITH DEEP FEELING – YOU SHOULD WIN!!!!!
2) FINLAND – AMAZING BALAD
CONGRATULATIONS FOR PORTUGAL!!!!
I am very confused who voted for Armenia’s song ????? It sounds like old style not modern turkey song…… and video is really not interesting …… I listening few times and nothing …… please stop viting fir this song.. ..
I avoid listening to the Portuguese song, it makes me cry every time, especially after knowing the meaning of the lyrics. Amazing.
Hugs from the beautiful Minsk
Michal Szpak, where are you in this year?! Michal Szpak was and still he is the best!!!
I like Ireland’s song. It’s the best in this year.
Armenia and Belgium are the best!!
My favourite song this year is Armenia….
Armenia the best!! Welcome to final!!!
Gooo Artsvik?!! #flywithme
Good luck from Cyprus!!!
Belgium song don’t count, is a copycap of Alexe Gaudreault – Éclat.
Armenia is zero music.
Good luck from Finland
So you think the songs of the likes of Belgium and Armenia , etc.. are unoriginal Eurovision garbage ? What ?
The only songs with real quality are those of Portugal (timeless beauty) and Finland (poetic sensibility). Everything else is to forget.
Eurovision SONG contest has to leave the circus … And again to focus on the quality of the song.
The word “modern” tries to hide pastiche mediocrity. 98% of ESC songs are pure junk.
18th is Albania, forgot that one. 😛
My Top 18
17. Czech Republic
good luck to all of participants from Azerbaijan. 🙂
I think Finland should be in final instead of Armenia’s song – sorry but this quite weak song, also Australia’s song is quite weak- Demi Im a year ago it was fantastic but not this year….. POrtugalia’s song makes me confused.. I dont know but this song is really so quiet for me for me -I think in ESC we looking for modern songs not old type songs….. I would put Belgium in TOP 10, but it not sounds as winning song sorry……And Greece is quite medium songs. So that my TOP 10 into GRAND FINAL : 1.POLAND. 2. FINLAND… Read more »
Daniel: “at least it’s in English”. Clearly, celebrating diversity doesn’t come naturally to you.
Why the hell is Poland getting more votes than iceland???!!!
Portugal, by far the best,
and then Finland.
My country this year takes a song without flame.
Good luck from Lesbos, Greece
14. Czech R.
I think this semi has the winner of 2017. Here are my predictions:
4. FYR Macedonia
1. FYR Macedonia
And the winner is… Portugal, with the best Eurovision Song in the 21st century.
Gabbani, purtroppo, non sarà in grado di superare l’arte del Portogallo.Baci dal Italia
Not my personal ranking, just a prediction to who is going to qualify and whos not:
18. czech republic
I can see that Semi Final 1 is definitely the harder one. There are so many songs that I would like to qualify…. 1. Iceland – Svala! I saw her as a winner of Icelandic NF at the very beginning – it came true. She’ll not be a winner of SF1 though, even though I wish she’d be! That mix between 80’s keyboard and contemporary music makes it much better! It sounds so, so Nordic! I love it! 2. Poland – Duuuh… my country! It’s one of the best Polish entries! Kasia has a magnificent, powerful voice. If she’ll control… Read more »
Portugal <3 <3
2017 TOP 5 🙂
I imagine Audrey Hepburn singing the song of Portugal instead of Moon River. What a beauty so overflowing. Completely in love with this beauty! 1200000 points de la France.
Armenia is best for me 😉

My TOP 10 (1st semifinal)
01) Portugal (This song plays in another League)
07) Czech Republic
This time I will play the game of Eurovision … I will vote for the first time in a song: Portugal. More songs like this in the future, and Eurovision will regain its prestige. For now, much public returns only for a song that is already a classic. Love from Russia
07) Czech Republic
Don’t you think that Switzerland is channeling Rita Hayworth in Gilda?
Great idea, she must be next top model.
Portugal should win the semi-final.
I see very fragmented televote, with no real top song. But, Belgium should get points from all juries with a good number of 12’s, taking the jury vote by a wide margin and being the winner of the first semi.
@Piro That would be pretty amazing if your cat is not mistaken this time! I would be happy as hell for Hungary if they won
Many good songs, I couldn’t decide who I would exclude from the 10, so I’ll just post a list of my 5 favorites:
The bad: Belgium is pretty good, but it’s a copycat identifiable from the first seconds, there’s no denying
as an Armenian myself i’m ashamed of this “hooray-patriotism” of my people and unobjective voting. Our song isn’t that great and could have been a better one instead of this. Also i actually like Latvia,Azerbaijan,Sweden and Australian songs.
You can say what you want, but Blanche is leading the poll 🙂
@Trans Mermaid, Portugal’s song this year is a boring dated ballad from the 1920s we have all heard a million times before and there is no way will it win this semi-final, more like it will come dead last like Estonia last year. Even Slovenia’s dated ballad is better, at least it’s in English! Had they would have chosen Pedro, they would most definitely be qualifiers.
11. Czech Republic
14. Poland, I really love the studio version, but live is boring..
My prediction TOP 10 for final
1. Sweden 2.Belgium 3.Australia 4.Azerbaijan 5.Greece 6.Armenia 7.Portugal 8.Moldova 9.Poland 10.Latvia 11.Finland 12.Georgia 13.Cyprus 14.Iceland 15.Albania 16.Montenegro 17.Slovenia 18.Czech Republic
TOP 3 with juries 1.Belgium 2.Sweden 3.Australia TOP 3 with televote 1.Sweden 2.Greece 3.Moldova
My TOP 10 in no order
1.Azerbaijan 2.Belgium 3.Finland 4.Georgia 5.Iceland 6.Latvia 7.Moldova 8.Portugal 9.Slovenia 10. Sweden
Prediction: Azerbaijan,Belgium, Greece, Sweden, Australia, Armenia,Poland, Moldova, Portugal and Finland
My favs: Same but Portugal out and Cyprus in
16) Czech Republic
Blanch will light up the city of Kiev!
