Saturday 29 February Eurovision schedule

Welcome to the penultimate Saturday of national selections… we’re almost there! This evening — 29 February — sees the ante pick up again after a small lull last week.

Here are all the details you need for 2020’s eight Saturday of national selections. We’ll be checking in with semi-finals in Portugal and Serbia, Sweden’s second chance round and finals in Iceland, Estonia, Moldova and Croatia.

You can follow all the results on wiwibloggs (and via our Twitter@wiwibloggs and Instagram wiwibloggs) throughout the evening. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening, when it’s on and how to watch.

Saturday 29 February: Eurovision 2020 Selection Shows

Estonia’s Eesti Laul 2020

Grand Final

Time: 18:30 CET to 20:00 CET and 20:30 CET to 21:45 CET

Estonia’s national selection kicked off a fortnight ago when two semi-finals whittled down the 24 entries to just 12 finalists. Tonight’s result will be determined across two rounds of voting. The first will see three songs sent to the superfinal through a combination of jury and public vote. The second round of televotes alone will determine the winner. Names to watch include Uku Suviste and Jaagup Tuisk.

Moldova’s Finala națională (O melodie pentru Europa 2020)

Grand Final

Time: 19:00 CET to 22:30 CET

Moldova’s Finala națională was rumored to be axed. But yet here we are with 20 songs to choose from in a three and a half hour grand final. As usual, the results will come down to a combination of jury and public votes. The selection boasts many familiar names, including Eurovision veterans Pasha Parfeny (2012) and Natalia Gordienko (2006).

Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2020

Andra Chansen

Time: 20:00 CET to 21:50 CET

Melodifestivalen 2020 is fast approaching its conclusion. But before the grand final in Friends Arena, we must first see who progresses from the second chance round. Across a series of duels, four acts will progress to the final. FELIX SANDMAN, Paul Rey and Malou Prytz are among those competing. In addition to the regular proceedings, this week’s episode has an extra 20 minutes to accommodate the Hall Of Fame celebrations. Several iconic performers are returning, including Loreen, Alcazar and Måns Zelmerlöw.

Croatia’s Dora 2020

Grand Final

Time: 20:05 CET to 22:15 CET

Croatia’s revived national final format returns for a second year. The show will see sixteen acts perform in a bid to represent the country at Eurovision. The decision will be made by a 50/50 split of public and jury vote. Big names include Lorena Bućan and Indira Levak.

HRT’s streaming platform is difficult to use for first-time visitors, so we recommend you follow our step by step viewing guide. Click here.

Iceland’s Söngvakeppnin 2020

Grand Final

Time: 20:45 CET to 22:15 CET

Iceland is still recovering after the spectacular trail of chaos left by Hatari. And while this year’s selection is a more sedate affair, there are still gems to be found. The final will see five acts perform and two rounds of voting. After the first stage, the juries and televotes will select two acts to progress to the gold final. One of the two will be crowned the winner, with the televote having the final say. If the hype proves to be accurate, Daði & Gagnamagnið and Iva should be the last two standing.

Serbia’s Beovizija 2020

Semi-Final Two

Time: 21:00 CET to 23:30 CET

Serbia’s national selection kicked off on Friday night, with the first six acts progressing to Sunday’s final. This evening will see another 12 songs performed, half of which will qualify. There are several heavy hitters, but all eyes and ears will be on Hurricane — the superstar girl group which counts Serbia’s 2016 singer Sanja Vucic among its members.

Portugal’s Festival da Canção 2020

Semi-Final Two

Time: 22:54 CET to 00:55 CET

Portugal’s Festival da Canção 2020 continues apace. And once again it’s an eclectic mix. Tonight will see eight acts compete in the second semi. Four of these will go on to the final. Dubio feat. +351 are the act with the most buzz.

Kady looks like Sade Adu’s little sister and sounds fantastic. I call it now, she already made it to the final after 4 entries in Festival de Cançao’s second semi.

So, Croatia: I guess Colonia and Mia Negovetic (this girl is very talented) are their most Eurovision-friendly options, but if they want to stand out, Aklea Neon is different from anything we’ll have in Rotterdam.

It was a very well behaved edition of Eesti Laul. I missed some anarchy, if you know what I mean. My superfinalists would be Jaagup, Anett & Fredi and Egert. Jaagup will probably win it, but there are singers with big fanbases and the final voting comes just from the audience, so we never know.

So far, all solid performances. Lots of fun with camera angles. Synne got smoked out (Oops).

Rumours abound that Uku Suviste has a huge following in the voting that can’t be beaten, but let’s see what happens.

That sounds good as it’s my favourite :). I found Jaagup Tuisk absolutely horrible.

Does anyone have an alternative link for the Moldovan Final? It somehow doesn’t work, does it?

Even the alternative links I found are freezing all the time. I’ve tried, Moldova.

Aw, what a nice idea to make this years contestants sing last years winner. Estonia’s the best. 🙂

I agree, that was really sweet! Considering Victor is otherwise occupied, it was a really nice tribute. Plus, this time everyone sounded really good in their parts. I have high hopes that, since the production in the finals is more refined, everyone will sound better. 🙂

EDIT: Yup, I was right. Rasmus was fantastic! Hopefully Shira will be too.

Shira was good, but they are all at a similar “good” level. What makes Jaagup Tuisk stand out is that the choreography is excellent.
