Czech Republic We Are Domi Lights Off Eurovision 2022 rehearsal
Photo: EBU / NATHAN REINDS

Semi-Final 2 of Eurovision 2022 unfolds on Thursday evening. Ahead of that it’s time to take a look at the biggest changes in the semi-final odds since the start of rehearsals…

Biggest rises

Czech Republic

Qualification chance: 78% (+17) / Final win chance: 0.2% (-)

We Are Domi had one of the best rehearsals from the semi-final, and their qualification chance rose significantly. Any concerns I had about vocals pretty much went out the door as lead singer Dominika delivered a confident and assured performance alongside some really good staging. The band were very happy with their rehearsal and rightly so. I expect this will sail through to the final.

San Marino

Qualification chance: 40% (+10) / Final win chance: 0.2% (-0.2)

Achille Lauro was another standout from the second semi-final rehearsals. He brought a sense of fun, energy and showmanship with one of the most memorable stage shows of the contest. It would be a big shame if this doesn’t make it to Saturday’s final.

Serbia

Qualification chance: 83% (+10) / Final win chance: 0.7% (-)

Despite Serbia being hindered somewhat by the broken kinetic sun, the addition of some on-screen lyrics should help broaden the appeal of ‘In corpore sano’. I wasn’t blown away by Serbia’s rehearsal in the same way as Czech Republic and San Marino, but Konstrakta’s qualification chance has risen to where it probably should have been all along.

Biggest falls

Montenegro

Qualification chance: 9% (-17) / Final win chance: 0.1% (-)

Unfortunately for Vladana, this performance doesn’t really stand out in the running order. There are a run of three songs in this semi-final (Poland, Montenegro and Belgium) which are all using black and blue colours heavily in their staging, which should damage at least one of the three. Montenegro’s qualification chance fell dramatically after rehearsals, and it looks like they will miss out on the final for the fifth time in a row.

Finland

Qualification chance: 73% (-12) / Final win chance: 0.2% (-0.3)

Vocals were a real struggle for Finland during rehearsals. While the chorus sounded okay, the verses really exposed it and The Rasmus will be hoping for a better performance in tonight’s jury show. Staging wise, the song also takes its time to get going. The first 30 seconds of the performance don’t really work on screen, with lead singer Lauri staring down the camera and holding a balloon. Though the odds still have Finland as a likely qualifier, after Albania missed out in the first semi-final yesterday, could both show openers fail to qualify for the first time since 2013?

North Macedonia

Qualification chance: 10% (-8) / Final win chance: 0.1% (-)

North Macedonia suffers from the same problem as Montenegro. Andrea didn’t give a bad performance in rehearsals, but the song ultimately failed to stand out amongst the others. I find it difficult to see where the points would come from for this to go through.

This is to all the wiwifans who have never had any faith in Belgium : We are through! You may think it is not “BIG” enough or “boring” or whatever, the truth is : Jérémie showed us this song is for him and it appealed enough to be qualified!

Well done Jérémie, and from now on : everything is a win!

People still take the odds seriously? Switzerland had only a 33 percent chance of qualifying according to the odds, yet they qualified. Similar story with Iceland and Lithuania. After semi final 1 results, anything is possible at this point

As a Maltese ESC fan, all I hope is that Malta does really poorly so that we go back to internal selection next year. Nobody here likes whatever we have sent, and no entry in our national final could have dreamt of making it to the final. Our entry is all a foreign package anyway except for the nationality of the singer. What a waste of a great artist.

Yes, definitely – unfortunately he has become quite known to plagiarise mainstream pop music. Also, even though the song was in Maltese, it was quite hard to connect to, because most of the lyrics made no sense. Also, the fact that Emma was quite popular here as an artist, even though nobody really liked her song, everyone voted for her.

My NGNG prediction is that one of Cyprus and Finland (or both) could shockingly NQ.

I think Australia and Azerbaijan are in tbh. Both solid songs, amazing staging and singers, so I think they were quite high with the juries.

I don’t see Israel qualifying tbh. Too many bops in the semifinal and he’s performing way too early. It’s giving Latvia.

Really hope Ireland and San Marino qualify.

I’m Irish so of course if we qualify I’d be happy, however I’m also realistic and I’m not hopeful for it. There is a path there for qualification having UK, Australia, Malta and Sweden voting…but yeahh not getting hopes up for it. I think Georgia could be a shock qualifier. The song is disliked by many here, but only because it’s not a diva banger. Georgia has something nostalgic, fun and creative about it. For me anyway. Of course if it doesn’t qualify I won’t be surprised either I’ll just know that Eurovision simply wasn’t ready for it. My other… Read more »

Approaching semi 2 from the other end. Which acts do I (personally) want to get rid of (harsh perhaps – but some will have to go):

Australia (I know … but too much of everything)

Finland (not my thing unless they stage it with som panache)

North Macedonia (like her voice … but)

Malta (far too sugar-ish)

Serbia (I don’t get what the fuss is about)

Romania (a definite no)

Ireland (a bit sad about it … but it doesn’t click with me)

Estonia (like his voice … very talented … but the style of music isn’t for me)

After all, I shouldn’t have left it here in the first place, it was a mistake and I may have ruined some people’s experience and I want to apologise for that, I acted poorly and foolish through my enthusiasm.

I agree Georgia will likely qualify. I say this also because I got 9/10 in SF1! (I was wrong about Lithuania getting in and Austria not making the cut, partly influenced by the choice of interval show, that I thought would have an influence on the voting for those 2 in particular).
I also think so because the song is pretty damned catchy!
I’ll work out the qualifiers tonight, though I know who I really don’t like (Israel)

Well, things get tough tonight. Semi 2 is much weaker than semi 1 in my view. A lot will struggle to qualify. DEFINITE QUALIFIERS: Sweden and Poland (backed by both juries and televote), Australia (mainly backed up by the juries). HIGHLY LIKELY TO QUALIFY: Azerbaijan (juries), Finland (televote but they need to level up a bit, like the UMK final), Czechia (televote) BORDERLINE: Serbia (I can’t see the hype at all but I can see support from televote, will it be enough?), Estonia (a little bit by both juries and televote), Romania (televote).

I don’t know why, but Montenegro is like my favorite entry this year. Vladana is so likeable, the song builds up in a dramatic way which i love, and her vocals are actually insane shen she hits those both the lowest and the highest votes. I also feel like there aren’t a lot of ballads that actually use ethnic sounds this year, which is something i also love about this entry. It hurts to see her this low in the odds, but I’m sending love from Norway!

I don’t believe that Serbia will be the televote winner. I would compare the Serbian entry with the last year’s Russia, both performing as 3rd (not very favourable position) and both loved by many fans for being original and innovative (although not very melodious). But obviously less attractive for an average ESC viewer since Russia was only 4th with the televote.

I mean, if you’re THAT dumb, nobody is going to save you as those bookies are nothing more than eurofans and nationalists who are listening to these songs for the past 2 months while on the stage to most viewers it will last only 3 minutes so performances, which need to grow, may fail.

Semi 2 is a weird one. There may be stiff competition (what many fans call a blood bath), but not because there are too many good songs – rather the opposite – too many mediocre songs that are up against each other; i.e. I don’t care one bit for the Swedish entry – but amongst the other lot it is hard to ignore. Hence it will probably be the overall winner.

I’d include Belgium instead of Malta but he completely butchered his last high note in the jury show. San Marino has to qualify and I hope juries will appreciate this more than what I expect them to do. Praying that somehow Ireland will also make it. Brooke deserves it.
