Hi Miley_Lovato!
Well, I'm happy that Albania make it to the finale. They have just a great song. And Denmark was also good. But all in all, it was a good show, nothing special. Waiting for the 2nd Semi-Final Smile

I am just glad Russia's in the finals. Laughing out loud
The Babushkas were great. Cool

Anyway, I really hope the 2-nd semi-final is better, and that Macedonia enters the finals this year. We' hadn't been in the finals for a pretty long time. Sad

Yeah I agree with ivank23,the Russian grand-ladies were exelent(!).
@Ida90 yeah it was good that Albania has managed to pass to the final and it has a pretty nice song but honestly I didn't like too much her apperence,I mean I didn't like her dress at all,it was like a more modest Lady Gaga's outfit.Anyway I'm very glad that Greece has passed but I'm very glad also for Cyprus and Ivi Adamou for passing to the final.

You're right. She has a ugly dress, but a strong voice and that is what I like. Btw. in the 2nd Semi-Finals you will see the worst dresses - Bosnia and Herzegovina (my land) and Croatia. Greece was very good, Eleftheria is such a beautiful girl. I'm a littel bit suprised that Hungary made it to the final

Why is so surprising, that Hungary is in the final? (Sorry, I'm a little bit biased, because I'm hungarian.) I think, the guys was very good.

Actually, my favorite is Can Bonomo from Turkey Smile I hope, he'll be in the Final on Saturday evening Smile

Look I think Hungary's song wasn't so bad,but there were some other songs which were better and they didn't passed to the final,that's why.

OK, I understand it, and I don't want to argue Smile I just asked Smile
Hungary is very proud for them now.

I agree that there were better songs, like the Hungarian song. I liked it very much the Greek and the Icelandic songs!

Nothing against Hungary, I was just suprised because it's not a typical ESC- Song. The band sounds like Nickelback

(I'm gonna sound mean for saying this but I think Albania and Russia got a lot of pity votes this year. I especially cannot stand Russia. I kind of expected them to be somewhat funny but it was just kind of ridiculous)
I absolutely loved the second semi-final, way better than the first. All my faves made it--Sweden, Norway, Turkey, Lithuania--which was amazing. The press conference was pretty great too Smile

I haven't listened to all the songs yet.
My favourite songs are the Albanian and the Italian one.
The catchiest songs are: the French, the Russian and the Moldavian ones.

Whatever you think but Russian Buranovskie Babushki ARE THE BEST and they deserved to take the first place and not Sweden with the most ever stupid and ungifted song.
However the second place is also not bad for such kind of a thing as Eurovision, the most unfairest thing.
Our Babushi are very GREAT and Natural!!!Russia is THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With all the respect I think it would be better if you supported your opinion with positive and objective reinforcement rather than unsubstantially offend others. I'm sorry if I deleted your posts but I'm new in moderation and marked them according to their content. Me I don't care less about Eurovision and the best songs are probably the ones that will talk to the hearts of people, the ones that people will sing, the ones that will outlive their creators and so on. So time will tell the best songs and we need not quarrel about them. So I'm offering an olive branch along with my sincere apologies for any inconvenience.
