Eurovision's 2nd semi final - like a fairytale
Some hate and some adore Eurovision song contest. Even it's more about the politics already but the show is worth to be seen. 42 countries from Europe and Asia occupied Russia's capital Moskow for 54th Eurovision song contest.
Last year Dima Bilan impressed peope and second attemp to win the contest was succesfull. Year of preparation and finally on Tuesday first semi final bang the walls of Olympiyski indoor arena. Massive event not only in Moskow and whole Russia but also a spectacle for Europe.
But looks like Eurovision is getting back to it's roots. Simple and simply amazing songs without massive shows. Looks like Bilan not only wone Eurovision but helped the contest to get back to the roots when everything was about the music and not the show. A "Star gate" improvisation by Ukraine was probably the only one to jump higher than anyone else. But still - people do like show.
19 contestants and only 10 tickets to the final. Nine of them been selected by the viewers and one was picked up by the jury. Croatia, Norway, Denmark, Azerbaijan, Greece, Lithuania, Moldova, Albania, Ukraine and Estonia left all others behind. But despite this only few songs catch real attention.
After years of English-spoken songs national languages striked again. And this was really impressive to see. If you are Eurovision fan probably have watched the Junior Eurovision which was simply amazing. And looks like elder decided to get back to the roots also. Urban Symphony from Estonian impressed by the simplicity and even it was great in Estonian I'd love to hear the English version."Fairytale" by Alexander Rybak impressed the most. Violin and rather interesting song and of course - amazing voice. Lithuania finally picked somebody really talented. And it worked out. Sasha Son with his "Love" brought hope for Lithuanians. The third to remember was Brinck from Denmark. "I wanna breaf again, I wanna believe again" - few lines that catched attention. But despite all the lights and show that was made - nothing to remember really more.
But the decision who will go home with heads up or down will be made tomorrow. At 8PM (GMT+0) the final will host the top 25 countries. And according to new rules only half of the points will be made by the audience. The second half will come from juri. And - maybe they will pay more attention to the talents and not the show itself.
Finalists in order:
12. Bosnia and Herzegovina
23. United Kingdom
