I'll start with the songs that didnt qualify:
Austria: Natalia is a very talented girl and her performance was ok maybe a bit forgetable but i think she gave her best on the stage.
Slovenia: I never liked this song and even if the performance looked good, her vocals were kinda bad, i still think she is a nice singer but this wasnt the song for her.
Croatia: They did a great job, the song grow on me when i heard the live peformance and they were very good on stage.
Cyprus: I like this song a lot and her performance today was much better than the vocal performance she did on the juries rehearsal, she is very lovely and i wish her all the best in her career.
Serbia: I hope they are not sad, they did their best and thats the most important thing here! i love this song and the performance was super cool!.
Now its the turn of one of the best songs of this year that sadly didnt qualify:
Montenegro: Who See feat Nina Zizic - Igranka
Here is my ranking of the 10 finalists:
10.Belarus: Alyona Lanskaya - Solayoh
I really dont get how this cheap song with that plastic performance and weak vocals got in the final.
09.Russia: Dina Garipova - What if
Dina is super talented and i like the song but its a very cheesy song and if we add a super cheesy stage act (lets hold our hands and shout peace to the world) we get something that i really dont find sincere.
08.Ireland: Ryan Dolan - Only love survives
This song is very good and Ryan did a great job on stage. Is it a winner? not for me.
07.Estonia: Birgit - Et uus saaks alguse
I loved this performance, she has a very lovely stage presence and her vocals were fantastic! Im very happy for her result!! Well done Birgit!
06.Ukraine: Zlata Ognevich - Gravity
Zlata is so beautiful and she knew what she was doing on stage and it worked very well! I still dont get the act but we cant deny that she is a fantastic artist!
05.Belgium: Roberto Bellarosa - Love kills
Im so proud of him! I wasnt a big fan of this entry but right now i cant stop singing it! Roberto is one of the most adorable artist of this year! I just want to hug him and kiss him!! Go Roberto! Go Belgium!!
04.Lithuania: Andrius Pojavis - Something
OMG!!!! YAAAAAAAAY!!!!! Im so happy for him!! I've been on his team since day 1 and im just very proud of him! This is a great song and he has something that i still dont know what it is but its kinda magnetic and you cant stop watching him! He did an great performance and i cant wait to see him on saturday!!! GO ANDRIUS!!!!
03.Moldova: Aliona Moon - O mie
Aliona is such a great singer and the performance was breathtaking! Bravo Moldova!!
02.Denmark: Emmelie de Forest - Only teardrops
This looked very good on screen and the public went wild with this performance. I hope she stays calm cause thats the best she can do right now and i also hope for a fantastic performance on the final! Good luck Emmelie!
01.The Netherlands: Anouk - Birds
*Long round of applause and a standing ovation* It would be so fucking amazing if this woman with this master piece wins the competition this year!! We need more of this in Eurovision!!! THANK YOU ANOUK!!! Congratulations to The Netherlands!!
