Just saying, but the Irish song is over 5 minutes long.

Denmark - No doubt not the best that Denmark could have entered 4/10
San Marino - Not doing anything for me 3.5/10
Romania - Stealing bugger! CLUB! 4/10
Ireland - Had to minimize window for that! Slow and boring 3/10
Spain - Electric guitar, thunder and lightning, must be rock! Nice tune, not that catchy. 6.66/10
Morocco - A great song for Morocco, which translated is a 'it's ok' song for the likes of Sweden, Norway etc. 4/10
Greece - Well this is certainly different to what Greece has sent before, I must say it is toe tapping, nothing special. 5.5/10
Moldova - See Morocco. 5/10
UK - Oh yes, a very powerful song. 7/10
Cyprus - Him again‽ Well It's all right. 5/10
Armenia - Can't understand a bleeding word, but it seems very nice. 5.5/10
Poland - I could live with her singing, but not his. 4.5/10
Serbia - Absolutely does nothing for me. 2/10
France - This must have come from the French version of Grease, oh oh oh no. 4.5/10
Belgium - Yawn 4/10
Macedonia - Wasn't expecting much from Macedonia, quite surprised though. 6/10
Slovenia - Now we are getting somewhere, very catchy. 7.5/10
Austria - WTF FTW! 1,000,000/10
Bulgaria - No. 2/10
Azerbaijan - Ditch him, and you'll get a better score from me. 4.9/10
Albania - Her not singing makes this like any other club song. 4.5/10
Turkey - Chorus is great, but let down by most of the rest of the song. 6/10
Netherlands - Someone mentioned Within Temptation? Ending on a higher in this SF, a great song. 7.6/10

Votes sent for both SFs, SF2 seems a lot stronger than SF1.

I struggled to find 10 songs in SF1 that I liked

I thought Semi 1 was quite weak but I think semi 2 probably got moire than its fair share of the strong songs

Denmark: Awful and outdated. 2/10
San Marino: Really like this, he has a great voice. I love songs sang in Italian. 8/10
Romania: It's no Lemonade. 4/10
Spain: I liked it at the start then the longer I listened to it for the more I went off it. 4/10
Morocco: Not great, but better than most so far. 5/10
Greece: I like Lianne la Havas. This is probably my favourite song of hers. 7/10
Moldova: A good club song, not that good though. 5/10
United Kingdom: Ewwww. Bring back England, Scotland, Wales & N.Ireland. -10/10
Cyprus: One of my favourite Cypriot entries was his first song. This is good but not as great. 7/10
Armenia: This is good. 6.5/10
Poland: Horrid. 1/10
Serbia: It's the definition of just 'okay'. 4/10
France: Aw her voice is really nice. 8/10
Belgium: Pales in comparison to France. 5/10
Macedonia: Not a fan of this. 3/10
Slovenia: Giving other songs a run for their money in terms of worst song in the contest. 1/10
Austria: Nevermind Slovenia, Austria beat you this time. 0/10
Bulgaria: It's just not happening, sorry. 3/10
Azerbaijan: It's just getting worse... and worse. 1/10
Albania: This is alright, or maybe thats just because it's in the midst of a long run of awful songs. 5/10
Turkey: One of the better ones. 7/10
Netherlands: I have a great song by these guys on my iTunes. It isn't this one. 4/10

Shockingly abysmal standard, I ended up giving points to a song I ranked 4/10. Go figure.

I hope SF2 is stronger, and i'm sure it is.

Semifinal 2 Review


Italy
I enjoyed this.

Latvia
The video is quite appropriate for today and the songs ok.

Bosnia & Herzegovina
Have we entered a parallel universe I love this song and its from Bosnia, my tip for the win or at least top 5.

Czech Republic
Another good entry, I really like the chorus its catchy.

Iceland
This was OK was expecting it to be epic though.

Sweden
I like this.

Malta
I like it, but I think something's missing like there's all this build up and I'm expecting some powerful ending to chorus but it just goes back to the verse.

Israel
Not a fan of Adam, this hasn't changed my mind.

Germany
This is really good, its made me smile

Estonia
This is ok.

Montenegro
Unfortunately unlike B&H this is what I was expecting for Montenegro

Georgia
Back to the 70's, see comments for Montenegro.

Hungary
Can't decide if this is serious or not.

Russia
Thank god for this I like this.

Finland
This is different, quite like this.

Lithuania
A bit cheesy but it can be forgiven, its decent.

Norway
This is good, I really like this.
Portugal
I have mixed feeling on this one.

Ukraine
This is catchy, she could do with more clothes though.

Croatia
I really like this.

Slovakia
Not liking this one.

Belarus
This isn't bad.

Switzerland
This is a decent end to the play list.

I'd have to agree with this. Some decent entries in here, at least 4/5 I could see getting decent points from me should they make the final. Haven't gone through the second one yet though so could change.

If you haven't already you should listen to Square One. His first song entered for FESC and by far the most amaze. <3

Semi Final One Review

Denmark: This is a nice start but I fear it could be forgettable come later numbers.

San Marino: Has promise but doesn't really go anywhere. A bit drab.

Romania: An uptempo number, hooray! The chorus is slightly repetitive but it's quite catchy.

Ireland: The video is powerful and makes the song for me.

Spain: It's a standard pop/rock hybrid; good but not great.

Morocco: Unfortunately it doesn't have a hook; it's a song which passed me by.

Greece: Something's missing from this - it becomes repetitive after a short while.

Moldova: The chorus is ok but the rapping is suspect to say the least.

United Kingdom: A plodding number though she has a powerful voice and the chorus is pretty memorable.

Cyprus: It immediately becomes a foot tapper with a great tune and strong vocals. I love it.

Armenia: From the introduction I didn't expect this; another song with an excellent tune and the beat is very strong.

Poland: I love this one; their voices compliment each other and the choir adds a much needed extra dynamic.

Serbia: This semi is starting to find it's feet; another strong number - I love the beat, tune and her vocals.

France: She has a good voice and I like the string accompaniment but the chorus lacks bite.

Belgium: Another repetitive number; her voice stands out.

Macedonia: Instantly memorable thanks to the catchy instrumental moments; the beat is superb and the vocals and tune are excellent.

Slovenia: The singer has a nice voice and the beat is catchy. Another one which becomes repetitive after a while.

Austria: I can see this being a big dance number in Vienna. It hardly matches the Waltz.

Bulgaria: OK verses but it loses it during the chorus.

Azerbaijan: Brilliant find! It's a fantastic song without looking at the country of origin.

Albania: This is quite nice; for me it just needs more of an edge but it's a good tune.

Turkey: I expected this to take off but it didn't really, though it's easy to listen to.

The Netherlands: Such a promising start but it's a shame that the chorus lacks much of a tune.

My top 12 (in alphabetical order): Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Ireland, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey.

Top 7 from SF2

Bosnia & Herzegovina
Estonia
Finland
Germany
Italy
Norway
Sweden

Altogether, not much difference between the two semi finals for me; some strong entries in both of them.

Italy - It's a nice song, but nothing special. The middle picks up during the duet. 5.5/10
Latvia - Just what we need, more snow and a dodgy MS Pain Snowman It's ok, I don't get it and is easily forgettable. 4/10
Bosnia and Herzegovina - Wow from B&H, a very nice song, something that I thought Bosnia would never provide. It's one of those "Why could I not find a song like this for them!" moments. 6.5/10
Czech Republic - And I thought the Latvian video was WTF Well the chorus is fine, but the rest is dire and I can't tell a word she says. 5/10
Iceland - Not really a fan of Bjork, but that does not end today. This would send me mad on repeat! 1/10
Sweden - Reminds me of someone when I was at college, and he was cute. A big step up from Iceland, this actually sounds like a song. I like it! 7/10
Malta - First few notes, and I immediately thought 1980s. It feels really depressing from the start, but that burst in the middle (a bit late though) picks it up, but just for a little, and depressing again. 3/10
Israel - Fourth time lucky for him to actually make a fine in DSFE, it's an all right song, but he's not having much success in DSFE unlike his USAvision song where he won (just thought I'd mention it). 5.5/10
Germany - I really was not expecting her voice, however it's rather nice to hear, and the song is quite quirky, but warm, and cheerful, really good. 6.9/10
Estonia - The Finnic languages are very nice to hear, on a good song, however this song, well not really. 4/10
Montenegro - Ok first thoughts, I might not like this... waiting for the lyrics... Oh no! Well it is Montenegro - a bonus '.5' though. 2.5/10
Georgia - Really don't want to write a long review for this. Not good. 2.6/10
Hungary - I don't see how that watch is meant to tell the time, I hope time flies listening to this. 2.6/10
Russia - Well that's bad opera. Ok it's warming especially the main vocals, even with the heavy beat. It's trying to do an Extremadura, but not as good. 6/10
Finland - A very rocky soundtrack, with some very nice vocals. 7/10
Lithuania - Another 'Official' song from a sporting event. I keep want to sing "It's my time" though. Nothing special. 5/10
Norway - There are some filthy f*****g songs in this SF. Well it's a shame she didn't qualify in MGP, but I think this will, the song flows very nicely. 7.5/10
Portugal - Nope, nothing, really don't get this song at all. 3/10
Ukraine - Oh this is very much what Ukraine would send to actual Eurovision, very DIVA! 7/10
Croatia - This is crashing back to Earth, not a fan. 4.5/10
Slovakia - A very cheery song, and foot tapping, but not a winner in my eyes. 5.6/10
Belarus - More blooming snow, TBH I find this boring, 4/10
Switzerland - Ah this is more like it, not so strong though, I certainly thing Switzerland's actual ESC song is far better though. 5.5/10

SEMI FINAL 2
Italy: It gets a bit epic by the end and very traditionalist Italy, which I like I guess. 6.5/10
Latvia: I imagine this is a christmas song. I hate christmas songs. 3/10

Czech Republic: ....... Lmao. 6/10

Malta: I like this. 7.5/10
Israel: I really don't like Adam Lambert. 0/10
Germany: I was not expecting this! Really quirky and cute. I like it, but it's nothing special. 6/10

Montenegro: There's the Montenegro we all love and hate. 1/10
Georgia: Oh my lord. 2/10
Hungary: It just gets worse... 2/10
Russia: Another of my songs, but I don't like it much. 3.5/10

Norway: Good but not great. 4/10
Portugal: I don't really 'get' it... 3/10
Ukraine: Omg I love this. 9/10
Croatia: This is good. 6/10

Belarus: Not a fan, Estonia is much better. 4/10
Switzerland: Ending with a great song. Really like this. 9.5/10

What a terrible standard.
