Eurovision 2018 has come and gone. But as the last bits of confetti fall to the floor and before we start thinking about booking our hotels for next year, the semi-final split results for Eurovision 2018 have been revealed. And they reveal quite a few surprises.
Eventual winner Israel also won the first semi-final, with Cyprus’ Eleni hot on Netta’s heels. The Czech Republic, Austria and Estonia rounded out the top five.
Azerbaijan placed unlucky eleventh, 14 points behind tenth place qualifier Finland. Perhaps less of a surprise, Iceland finished last in this semi-final of death with only 15 points.
Returning champ Alexander Rybak came out on top of the second semi-final, despite only finishing 15th in the grand-final. Sweden managed to reach second place, with Moldova, Australia and Denmark the other countries to reach over 200 points.
Fan-favourite Hungary just squeezed through to the final, placing tenth just four points ahead of Romania. Georgia ended up in last place in the semi-final, finishing with 24 points.
