Eurovision 2019 semi final 2

Eighteen acts are competing for the last ten spots in the Eurovision 2019 grand final. There are atmospheric ballads, banging pop songs and even some traditional Sami joik in the mix. We are now opening the conversation to our readers and we want to know who you think should qualify for the grand final.

The second semi-final will take place tomorrow night and eighteen must be narrowed down to ten.

Wherever you will be watching the semi-final from, we know you want to have your say.

Does your spirit yearn for Norway? Are you living for Romania’s Dracula-inspired staging? Maybe you are walking with Srbuk from Armenia. Whoever your favourites may be, now is your chance to have your say.

You can vote for up to ten acts of your choice that you want to qualify and we’ll close the poll tomorrow prior to the live broadcast. Let’s do this!

Who should qualify from Semi-Final 2 of Eurovision 2018?

You can hate on Croatia as much as you want but that doesnt change the fact that Roko is one of the most powerfull vocals there. Deal with it and stop hating for once.

It’s fun to read all comments. I’m for one glad that it’s the whole of Europe (and more) that votes and not some individuals. ‘cause you have such diverse tastes.
But for sure the introduction of juries in 2009 was a mistake. Vote for what you like. Other people will vote diffently.

I have not watched any of the rehearsals. So, based on the audio tracks and videos that they sent to the EBU, this is who I see qualifying:
1. Netherlands (my #2 overall)
2. Malta (#4)
3. Azerbaijan (#5)
4. Norway (#10)
5. Switzerland (#13)
6. Denmark (#14)
7. Sweden (#15)
8. Russia (#16)
9. Romania (#18)
10. Armenia (#19)

The dark horse here is my #11 (#20 overall), North Macedonia. Tamara is sitting 8th on the bookies’ board for this semi.

By the way, someone leaked the jury performance of Azerbaijan, and his Azeri howl iz amazing and Azerbaijan is going to the final for sure. But for anything, is that, the effect the press center is crazy about? For real?

and people still calling Sasha JB the “master of staging”, while her ideas are either a flop or recycled from her past attempts.
Hope they’ll bring new creative stage directors, and ditch these old flatteners, such as “saushage and pancake” for future ESCs.

And some of John Lundvik’s bridge climax is also shown. I don’t know if it’s SJB or not, but… that reminded me of worship performances a la charismatic churches. Probably in a good way, because it fits the song.

Croatia will qualify , I’m not keen on the song at all. But geographically it will get leads of votes . It’s not a winner and remember Croatia always seems to qualify with these kind of songs in the past . Look at the writer of the song he qualified a few years back with a dreadful song. The same thing will happen this year .

Croatia will go to final because of jury votes, voice of this cute boy is amazing. But geografic ( televoting) Croatia is in bad position, without neighbours, not North country, not have a lot of voters like Albania, Serbia and other Balkan countries

This is really open and good SF, I have more than 10 qualifiers, which means some good songs will remain in the semi. Compered to SF1 I prefer the songs in Semi 2, but to be honest, based on rehearsal videos, some countries in SF2 really disappointed with their staging. My opinion is that The Netherlands, Russia and Sweden are 100% qualifiers. Malta, Azerbaijan and Switzerland will most likely qualify, but Switzerland disappointed me with their staging even though they were my favourites before the show. I wish they kept the costumes from the music video, that would be so… Read more »

(That said, I was disappointed by their performance and TOTALLY blown away by Georgia’s, so you ARE right – at the end of the night, Portugal/Hungary/Georgia were my three qualifiers that didn’t make it. Eurovision 2019 said “no manbun beard rights,” apparently ): )

Are people really this delusional that they think Croatia is going to QUALIFY? I haven’t watched any of the rehearsals but this is a very jury friendly semi final and countries like the Netherlands, Sweden, Macedonia, Albania and Malta are going to sweep the jury vote, and Croatia needs that extra jury support because it’s an outdated song. They’re going to be pushed out by the better songs. 14th at best.

I kind of agree with the odds here to qualify here. Thought my personal rank differs a little. What I want: 1. The Netherlands 2. Azerbaijan 3. Switzerland 4. Lithuania (disappointing staging) 5. Malta (disappointing 2nd rehearsal and she looks a bit uncomfortable on stage, though not as much as Eliot) 6. Austria 7. Sweden 8. Albania 9. Armenia 10. North Macedonia What I predict: 1. The Netherlands 2. Sweden 3. Russia 4. Azerbaijan 5. Switzerland 6. Malta 7. Armenia 8. Norway 9. North Macedonia 10. Austria Maybe: Albania, Denmark I would really like to see Lithuania and Austria qualifying.… Read more »

I’m rooting for (in order of appearance) Romania, Sweden, Austria, Malta, Albania, Norway, the Netherlands and North Macedonia. Azerbaijan, Russia and Switzerland will qualify (I actually like the first 2, they deserve), so one of these 8 is already gone. Based on how disappointing the results were for me in the first semi, I guess at least 3 or 4 of mine won’t make it. I hope at least one of the spots go to Armenia then. If any of you guys could cast a vote for Albania in my name, please do it. 🙂

Actually, it seems even more difficult to predict what will happen here than in semi 1 – not because I believe it to be the better semi-final, but because there are a bunch of very similar mainstream songs competing for the same target audience. Initially, I had five sure qualifiers, but I’m not so sure anymore, only three of them are left, these are Malta, the Netherlands and Azerbaijan. Sure non-qualifiers are in my eyes Moldova, Lithuania, Ireland, Denmark and Croatia – but who knows, three of my sure non-qualifiers squeezed through yesterday and upset my whole scoreboard. That leaves… Read more »

If Denmark squeezes through on top, you’d have to eliminate two others, because I still have eleven qualifiers, even if we’re assuming, Macedonia is out. The odds would suggest that it had to be Austria and Romania, but I refuse to believe that. I will decide tomorrow during the show, who I will be kicking out. 🙂
