Yeah it's ok - Looks decent enough but i'm not sure how much impact it's going to have.   SuRie can sing the song and it's not bad at all.

PASS ME THE INSULIN!!!

i've actually been sick in my own mouth before this even comes on stage which will mean that people are going to love this - ugh.  

All they do is sing to each other and mince to the centre of the stage and it looks awkward and I still don't know if it's live or not - I suspect they were recorded this afternoon.

Portugal

Claudia is on the stage singing her song - Not sure if it's live or recorded but it's not a bad go at this and in a recognition exercise it's doing ok.

Planet Portgual

You lucky people that are not in the UK and Ireland will get to see something HILARIOUS (!) in the interval.  Planet Portugal. 

I shan't spoil it because it's hideous without me saying anything!

Well...

....I'd love to tell you what is going on in the hall but at the moment they have cut the sound. 

Oh we're back it seems - we've missed last year's singers singing last years winner worse than Salvador!

Second reprise of the songs now.
