The winners from the First Semi-Final are Romania, Moldova, Iceland, Hungary, Denmark, Albania, Cyprus, Greece, Russia and Ireland. Personally, I find it too bad Switzerland didn’t make it, and although I am a little surprised, I think it’s awesome Russia got through. Party for everybody! I really enjoy it when countries come up with a little crazy act. Moldova last year for example, was definitely one of my favorites. And what about Ireland sending a turkey to the stage back in 2008? (Dustin the Turkey – Irelande Douze Pointe)
Well, I’m already exited for the Second Semi-Final on Thursday (May 24). My country will be participating then: Joan Franka, with her song “You and Me”.
