We’ve had eight days of first and second rehearsals. And now that they’re all finished, it’s time to reassess our Eurovision 2021 favourites. Who has risen up your rankings and who has fallen by the wayside? It’s time to cast your vote one last time and let us know who should win semi-final one of Eurovision 2021.

Eurovision 2021: Semi-final one line-up

The 16 semi-final one acts range from old school pop bops to modern dramatic ballads. We’ve got quirky disco and dramatic chansons. Gospel, hyper pop and dream pop all feature. However, only ten of the 16 will make it out of the semi-final on Tuesday.

  • Lithuania: The Roop “Discoteque”
  • Slovenia: Ana Soklič “Amen”
  • Russia: Manizha “Russian Woman”
  • Sweden: Tusse “Voices”
  • Australia: Montaigne “Technicolour”
  • North Macedonia: Vasil “Here I Stand”
  • Ireland: Lesley Roy “Maps”
  • Cyprus: Elena Tsagrinou “El Diablo”
  • Norway: Tix “Fallen Angel”
  • Croatia: Albina “Tick-Tock”
  • Belgium: Hooverphonic “The Wrong Place”
  • Israel: Eden Alene “Set Me Free”
  • Romania: Roxen “Amnesia”
  • Azerbaijan: Efendi “Mata Hari”
  • Ukraine: Go_A “Shum”
  • Malta: Destiny “Je me cases”

Precisely who will qualify is anyone’s guess. But who do you want to see make it? You can watch snippets of this year’s first semi-final second rehearsals in the playlist below. Then vote for your favourites in our poll. You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time, so make it count.

In my other scenario and if Roxen sing well the final order could (not my personal preferences) be:

1.Lithuania
2.Romania
3 Russia
4.Ukraine 
5.Isreael
6.Malta
7.Cyprus
8.Ireland

I really don’t know if semi 1 is such a bloodbath, I can imagine several outcomes I’d be okay with. After all, only six acts will be eliminated, and if they were North Macedonia, Sweden and Norway, Azerbaijan, Cyprus and Israel, I’d be all set. Croatia is luckily in a very good position when it comes to voting allies, and with Cyprus it’s the opposite, so who knows, perhaps my wish will come true.
Ukraine or Russia should win this semi, but they probably won’t.

How is the number of safe non-qualifiers an indicator for competitiveness? For me it’s a bloodbath if no matter what, we’d lose a good song, like in the first semi of 2018. In this semi, there’s still wiggle room, even if Sweden should undeservedly qualify.

Cyprus is among the certain qualifiers, but I *could* see Sweden with the shorter end of the stick, perhaps. Not likely, but possibly. Norway is likely making it, but he could miss out too. I hope Croatia is qualifying too. I am daring to even predict this outcome.

Staging and look may be fine, but you know that I don’t think a subpar song can be saved by that, and “El Diablo” is a subpar song, vocally also not particularly challenging, so this won’t help her with the juries. Honestly, Croatia has strong voting allies in this semi and the song is much better, Albina looks and sounds great and has apparently also great staging. Why is everybody worried for her and acts as if Cyprus was a certain qualifier. Is it only because of the betting odds? The betting odds are off half of the time, and… Read more »

The ten that I would keep (in alphabetical order, because I don’t really have a preference): – Australia: The song is super effective and Montaigne a singer as charismatic as she is talented. – Belgium: Class and bewitching, like all Hooverphonic’s universe. – Cyprus: it sounds like already heard but it’s one already heard well packaged. – Ireland: There is something very pure in Lesley’s voice, and there is something “motivating” about the song. It’s the kind of title that bring up your spirits. – Malta: ça passe… Ou ça casse. It’s very dancey and great for partying. But the… Read more »

Considering the snippets, Malta, Russia or Ukraine should take the crown of the SF1. Cyprus seems to have the best staging — SJB had obviously not putting her best efforts to work with all her clients — but Elena sounds like she’s vocally shaking. So till tuesday night, I don’t think that Cyprus would win its semi.

Fellow Croatian here. Our journalism is usually so annoying. They tend to hype-up our acts beyond reasonable measure, and then tear them down. It highly depends on what you’d consider by *flopped hard*. We qualified, surpassing several other contestants, including great songs from Estonia and Iceland. I’d personally call that a moderate success, not a flop. And objectively, I expect only a tad better result this year. If we qualify, I’ll be happy. If we finish within top 20, the better. Based on the odds, anything above that is a bonus, not expected. My prediction is 15th-20th in the finals,… Read more »

Based on the odds, and my gut feeling, now I’ll say that the qualifiers will be – MALTA, LITHUANIA, CYPRUS, RUSSIA, UKRAINE, CROATIA, NORWAY, BELGIUM, ISRAEL, SWEDEN*

My personal qualifiers – UKRAINE, RUSSIA, BELGIUM, ROMANIA, LITHUANIA, NORWAY, CYPRUS, CROATIA
The last two spots are between MALTA, IRELAND, AZERBAIJAN, and AUSTRALIA, and it’s hard for me to decide. Ask me after the semi. 😉

  • Or Sweden is a shocking NQ, and AUSTRALIA takes his place.

Same. Thinking about it, there is a lot of competition to gain jury votes (Malta, Belgium, Israel, Cyprus, Slovenia, even Australia), while I don’t see televoters going overwhelmingly for it. Tusse is still awesome, but the staging surprisingly looks a bit less polished than it did in Melfest, and the song might be forgotten between the uniqueness of Russia and Australia. Still, something tells me he’ll likely go through. But if he doesn’t, I wouldn’t be as shocked as I assumed.

To be honest, there is way better songs in that semi that would normally miss out because of Sweden’s automatic qualification status.
So honestly, this year I think it should happen. In the interest of music and keeping the competition fair.

Strictly based on music, Sweden should probably sit this one out. A good result of that might be a wake-up call for the juries in Melfest to vote less safe. But I would be sad for Tusse. I don’t want him to feel like he wasn’t good enough compared to other Melfest winners, cause that’s not the case. He is just as good. I hope his carrer wouldn’t suffer.

Oh I agree. After their last (and only NQ) in 2010, they massively upped their game in 2011, then won in 2012 with probably the most iconic Eurovision song of the last decade. I think the same would happen again if they NQ this year. Otherwise it will be the same safe song every year.

What about the careers of all artists? No one’s career should “end” with Eurovision. It can happen that other countries than Sweden have better or much better songs/performances. Entries that are worth of qualification and made by local teams.

I agree here. I just suspect that the Swedish artists are held under even more pressure to achieve a top ten result than average. For instance, I think that the Brits would be okay with James finishing 16th or so.
But, sure, some artists like Roxen, Montaigne, and Lesley have waited even longer than Tusse, plus they have stronger entries, so in that regard, them going through would be even better.

I’m going to tread carefully here – but I’m very curious as to why MALTA seems to fade in many people’s estimataion (I never really cared much for the song, but that’s not of any importance here.) Hence I’m trying my hands at an ANALYSIS – and I’m convinced the explanation is about much more than just a dress and the staging. My feeling is that the fuss about the stage concept/pink dress etc. has cheapened the initial statement that seems so appealing to so many (a decent song, a good voice, and a girl with an attitude).

I think it comes more to that live version and performance didn’t live up to the hype of studio version and people didn’t see it live and as a whole package until now and it’s becoming obvious that some lives from before are better (France, Italy) and that some studio versions elevated the song more than Malta (Cyprus).

I wasn’t referring to the dress comment but “disgrace” comment but since you’re here let me teach you a lesson hun.. that braided dress is part of her ethiopian heritage and saying it’s abomination is hateful or spiteful.

I clearly, as anyone with a head on their shoulders can see, have not offended her culture, nor have I said anything about her heritage, her looks or whatever you want to see. I respect people’s ethnicities, their culture and the vision of it on the ESC stage. That’s why I love it all. Stating something untrue is in fact, very disrespectful to me. It’s okay for you to voice your opinion, but not for me? That’s what dictators and Incels think. I’m sure you’re not one of those. Manizha’s outfit or Tix’s, for example, are nice, that’s what I… Read more »

Rude how? I absolutely wasn’t rude, I just don’t like the same as you and that’s really okay, because we’re not robots. Chill out, girl! Have a nice day.

I really want Australia, Belgium and Ukraine to go through. I’m sure the other countries like Malta, Russia etc. will make through, but i really really want these three!!!

Australia and Belgium are so underrated. It’s really sad. It’s like people prefer cheap shows instead of class again. I had such high hopes after Salvador winning…

true that. I like montaigne because hyperpop is genre not common to esc . and for Belgium, the band used to specialize in trip hop, until they started other genres as well . they’re so interesting as compared the generic ones like Cyprus and Malta etc. (no hate to them , just my opinion)

To all you music experts out here talking about Romania: 90% of people watching esc are seeing the acts for the first time then and know nothing qbout how they sound in studio version. Roxens vocals are nothing to die for but they are certainly not garbage as yall make it seem and people home are not judging vocal abilities but voting for the songs that they like overall. So please chill with your music expertise. Love from Croatia.

With Sennek, vocals were fine, but the whole staging concept felt bland and uninspired.

They qualified with worse songs. But this one doesn’t deserve to qualify, agree. They still will qualify though
