On March 13, Georgia’s Iriao released “For You”, meaning that we finally know the complete line-up for the second semi-final of Eurovision 2018.
This semi is arguably more open than the first, but Australia’s Jessica Mauboy is already emerging as a favourite. The country hasn’t left the top ten since debuting three years ago — can the Idol alum secure their first victory?
After missing the 2017 contest, Russia will be hoping that Julia Samoylova can get them back on track. And last year’s hosts Ukraine aren’t resting on their laurels, sending X Factor star Mélovin.
Waylon returns for the Netherlands. He previously came second with the Common Linnets and must surely have another top ten spot in his sights.
And he’s not the only Eurovision returnee. Eurovision 2009 winner Alexander Rybak is taking another shot at glory for Norway.
Contestants from Latvia, Romania and beyond will do their best to outshine all of them.
