Semi-final 2 (11.05.17.)

1: Tijana Bogićević - In Too Deep (Serbia)
It's... okay. Started off sounding pretty good and then just went... fleh.

2: Nathan Trent - Running on Air (Austria)
It's cute! But... doesn't do much for me otherwise.

3: Jana Burčeska - Dance Alone (F.Y.R. Macedonia)
I'm dancing! It's not amazing, but I like it!

4: Claudia Faniello - Breathlessly (Malta)
Now, for me to like a ballad, the chorus has to be strong. This one? NAILS IT. Nice one, Malta!!

5: Ilinca and Alex Florea - Yodel It! (Romania)
I AM DYING OF LOL SHE IS OPERATICALLY YODELLING FOR NO REASON I SERIOUSLY CANNOT BREATHE I LOVE IT OH GOD WTF. OH GOD AND WHEN THE YODELLING GOES NUTTY TOWARDS THE END I AM WHEEZING

6: O'G3NE - Lights and Shadows (The Netherlands)
Aw, it's cute and they harmonise nicely. Not ZOMG WOW but pleasant.

7: Joci Pápai - Origo (Hungary)
Ooh, this is niiiice. And it's in Hungarian! Not really Eurovision material? But I like it!

8: Anja - Where I Am (Denmark)
Ooh, she's got a good voice. Chorus lets the song down, though. Shame. :/

9: Brendan Murray - Dying to Try (Ireland)
Aw, what a cute rosy-cheeked Irish lad. And his song's cute too! AAAND IT HAS A KEEEEYYYY CHAAAAAANNNGGEEE YES IIIIIRELAAAAAAAAAAND

10: Valentina Monetta and Jimmie Wilson - Spirit of the Night (San Marino)
Valentina Monetta makes her FOURTH appearance in the Eurovision! And I'M DAAAANCIIIIING. I like it! AND IT HAS A KEEEEEYYYY CHAAAAAANNNNNGE

11: Jacques Houdek - My Friend (Croatia)
Croatia delivering a very nice oddity this year! The random switch to opera vocals from pop vocals took me by surprise. Sounds almost like he's singing a duet with himself! Lovely cheese-drenched chorus, which is essential for a ballad.

12: JOWST - Grab the Moment (Norway)
Well, I'm dancin'! P nice, p nice.

13: Timebelle - Apollo (Switzerland)
Snooooooore.

14: Naviband - Story of My Life (Belarus)
IT'S IN BELARUSIAN! And has a nice folk feel to it! I think I like it! Yeah, this is cuuuuute :)

15: Kristian Kostov - Beautiful Mess (Bulgaria)
Ohhh niiiiiiice. I like this!!

16: Fusedmarc - Rain of Revolution (Lithuania)
Well, this has a particular brand of Eurovision Weird that I think I quite enjoy. xD

17: Koit Toome and Laura - Verona (Estonia)
It's alright. Not bad. Lyrics are interesting though.

18: IMRI - I Feel Alive (Israel)
Aaaand this has a particular brand of what I'm going to call 'Modern Naff' that is just sadly disappointing every time. Israel you let me down :(





Semi-Final 2 was a lot weaker than Semi-Final 1 IMO. The entry that stood out to me the most was Romania's, which killed me dead from LOL. A few nice ones here and there, though. Oh yeah, I also really liked Bulgaria. Aaand now to wait for the results...

... Bulgaria and Romania got through; I'm happy!
