THE GRAND FINAL REVEALED!

Words by Hass Yusuf, images by David Ransted.

So, we have the final ten qualifiers to the Grand Final 2017.

Congratulations to (their performance in either the first half or second half are in brackets):

AUSTRIA (1st half)
ROMANIA (2nd half)
NETHERLANDS (1st half)
HUNGARY (1st half)
DENMARK (1st half)
CROATIA (1st half)
NORWAY (2nd half)
BELARUS (1st half)
BULGARIA (2nd half)
ISRAEL (1st half)

Personally I am very disappointed for Estonia. It was my favourite in this semi. So, I lose Finland in the first semi, and now Estonia in the second! Something is going wrong!

A decent position for the UK – but it may be before an advert so that may prove to be a problem if viewers are having a tea or loo break.
Anyway, before all that here are a few images (my camera) from the OGAE UK annual gathering held last night at O’Brien’s Irish Pub in downtown Kyiv. It was a jam-packed social event, with ITV’s Good Morning Britain show one more in attendance. We’ll have better photos in the next edition of Vision Magazine.
