The Final Six Entries from the Second Eurovision Semi-Final

Turkey: “Love Me Back” by Can Bonomo

Traditional and groovey. This one is growing on me. The video helps a lot.

Estonia: “Kuula” by Ott Lepland

Slovakia: “Don’t Close Your Eyes” by Max Jason Mai

The token rocker this year hoping for a rerun of 2006 Lordi win. I like the song, very Linkin Park and Papa Roach, but the chorus is a bit too Europe for me.

Norway: “Stay” by Toolji

This is another early favorite for me. It’s got everything a Eurovision song should have. This is a surefire entry for the Finals, and maybe the win.

Bosnia & Herzegovina: “Korake Ti Znam” by Maya Sar

Lithuania: “Love Is Blind” by Donny Montell

The blindfold is a bit much, and the disco transformation scared me more than a Rick-roll.

The Second Semi-Final takes place on May 24th in Baku.

First Six from the Second Eurovision Semi-Finals

Serbia: “Nije Ljubav Stvar” by Željko Joksimović

F.Y.R. Macedonia: “Crno I Belo” by Kaliopi

Zzzzzzzzzzzz…

The Netherlands: “You and Me” by Joan Franka

I’m really not sure what American Indian feather headdress symbolizes in The Netherlands, but Joan Franka is certainly a frontrunner in my mind.

Malta: “This Is the Night” by Kurt Calleja

This kinda reminds me of bad 1990s disco, and I kept expecting to get Rick-rolled. It’s catchy though, and very Eurovision.

Belarus: “We Are the Heroes” by Litesound

Ditto. Pretty too, just not sure about the Power Rangers costumes.

Portugal: “Vida Minha” by Filipa Sousa

The Second Semi-Final takes place on May 24th in Baku.
