May 17 / Press Voting for the Second Semifinal
VIENNA. AUSTRIA – Sweden and Azerbaijan are just one point apart on the top of the second semifinal’s list. Norway is not far behind, but there’s a bit of a loop till Slovenia’s fourth place, which is more than right as the country will most likely earn its new best placement this year. Golden boy is just behind Maraaya and Montenegrin entry, penned by Zeljko Joksimovic is on sixth place. I can say with out a doubt that this could be the year of Balkan countries. Latvia, Czech Republic, Lithuania and Iceland are rapping up top ten of Thursday’s show. Probably the biggest surprise here is Malta’s absence. For me it’s pity to see Switzerland with such a good song and performance almost on the bottom, but San Marino and Portugal are totally deserving it.
