On Thursday, 8th May 2014 there was a second semi-final of the Eurovision contest. 15 contestants, 10 went on to the Saturday’s final.
On Tuesday, 6th May 2014, 7 of the songs I counted on went to the final. On Thursday, 6 of my chosen songs went to the final. Including the song that I voted on.
My 6 songs in final
Firelight – Coming Home
Conchita Wurst – Rise Like a Phoenix
Softengine – Something Better
Sebalter – Hunter of Stars
I voted for them!
Tinkara Kovač – Round and round
Paula Seling & OVI – Miracle
The other 4
Mei Finegold – Same Heart
The Shin and Mariko – Three Minutes to Earth
Vilija Matačiūnaitė – Attention
Can-Linn (ft. Kasey Smith) – Heartbeat
All the rest
Polish song of Donatan & Cleo – My Słowianie – We Are Slavic got to the final. I’m Polish, I should be happy, right? I’m not… see a video.
However they’re trying to explain “it’s just a joke” and “it’s a laugh on stereotypes of Polish” I can’t just accept that. They are rather further spreading the stereotypes. I wouldn’t vote for them even if I could. What do you think about this song and music video?
The others that got to the Saturday final: Norway, Greece and Belarus.
The unmentioned yet: Macedonia. Definitely the worst song (singer) in this semi-final.
Did the song you vote for got to the Saturday final? Who did you vote for? Do you have your Saturday favourite or not yet?
