Lisbon Blog: Day 11, Wednesday 9 May


Reporting for OGAE UK and Vision magazine we have Hass Yusuf (words), David Ransted (photos), and along with Robin Scott who’s helping us out, especially with any videoing. This blog will be updated throughout the day.

So we have our first ten semi-finalists going through to the Grand Final!

Congratulations to:

ALBANIA! Well done Eugent!

CZECH REPUBLIC! Well done Mikolas!

LITHUANIA! Well done Ieva!

ISRAEL! Well done Netta!

ESTONIA! Well done Elina!


AUSTRIA! Well done Cesar!

FINLAND! Well done Saara!

IRELAND!!!!!!! Well done Ryan!

CYPRUS! Well done Eleni!

So did your favorites go through! For once mine did – Albania! The shock results of the evening were that Greece – and and for the first time ever, Azerbaijan failed to get through!  Belgium’s good run ends, while Bulgaria;s continues! This really was a tough semi!

Today we see the first dress rehearsals for Semi-Final 2.

There was a slight technical hiccup – Sweden had to be performed later than its scheduled slot due to problems with Benjamin’s light tubes! Hopefully it’ll all be OK on the night!
