LIVE BLOG: Semi final 1 – Jury Show

Tonight is the show that the esteemed juries of Europe get to watch and make up their musical minds about how to award their points. So there’s 50% of everything to play for with the performances we get to see. Except for Montaigne, because unless she did three takes and randomised which one goes when, that’s a done deal.

I’m live with commentary on the stream shared with those of us lucky enough to have access to the virtual press centre and judging each song as if I were a member of a jury – rather than a populist telemeter.

We’ll also see a preview of the songs from Italy, Germany and The Netherlands.
