So you have our latest video blog below with our last minute thoughts. We're just in the press centre waiting to go in and it's BUZZING with excitement! I can't imagine what it's going to be like for the final. We''ve just been interviewed for a Dutch gay TV channel because I am sporting matching Joan Franka t-shirts with Elaine from All Kinds Of Everything and David from The Eurovisionary blog. Who, dear? Gay, dear? Me, dear? How very dare you!

We've also just met Lys Assia who is here in what she probably thinks is Baghdad so should the excitement prove too much for her she will at least pass away happy in the knowledge that she's met us. Valentina Monetta was behind us in the queue for a photo and was completely star struck, name dropping Ralph Siegel to limited interest from Lys.

So on with the show, folks. Enjoy the ride and see you on the other side.

  1. I thought this semi was vastly superior to the previous one – better songs, much better singing and I was actually moved by one or two performances (Estonia a very pleasant surprise; Malta, Serbia and Bosnia also great). I watched the show with a bunch of people who have little or no knowledge of the hype surrounding this year’s contest. And it proved one thing conclusively. Loreen may be a strong singer with a good song but everyone was put off by the performance (‘weird’ being the verdict of most people). So I don’t see Sweden taking the grand prix. Maybe the Russian grannies will have the last laugh.

  2. It was a great show, wasn’t it? In the rehearsal of the final today Spain was just VERY big in the hall, so don’t rule them out either! 🙂
