OMG! The first semi-final is today!

– Here’s a sneak peak of Mr. Putin’s expansion plans. Go ahead and vote for us, suckers!

Sadly you won’t find your favorite Eurovision bloggers reporting live from the press center and from premier VIP seating inside the arena this year. Due to a series of unforeseen circumstances, which we won’t bore you with the details. But we promise to be back on location next year when it’s Italy’s turn to host Eurovision again!

Despite our absence, the EBU decided not to cancel this year’s contest and tonight we will watch the first semi-final on the telly like the rest of you, in the comfort of our own homes. Thank God we have attentive and well-behaved husbands providing us with a glass of bubbles and perhaps a foot rub, ensuring the expected VIP treatment.

Here are our ten favorites entries, which we think deserve to proceed to the Il Grande Finale, earning the right to perform on the same stage as Italy this year. And just to make things clear, this is not an attempt to predict which countries actually end up qualifying. Click on the links to read our reviews!
