As we approach the 60th Eurovision Song Contest more countries reveal new versions of their songs in order to impress and persuade the European public to give them the victory in the Grand Final of the contest. We take a closer look at the many new versions.
After a long journey at Eurovizijos, Monika Linkyte & Vaidas Baumila have become the
winners and they will represent Lithuania in Vienna with the song This Time. The Lithuanian representatives were chosen via jury vote and tele-vote. In both sections, they were the leaders.
The second show of Eurovizijos was held last evening with the twelve artists performing cover versions of world hit songs. The band Rolikai was eliminated after scoring the lowest points from the combination of the jury and televote results.
A total of 39 countries will take place at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in May in Vienna. The return of Cyprus, Serbia and Czech Republic brought the number of entries up, compared to last year where only 37 countries took part.
The second semi-final took place this evening in Copenhagen with the last ten nations being selected to go through to Saturday's final. It was a fabulous show which, besides featuring the fifteen participant acts, included a guest performance from Australia during the interval act.
This evening, the final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will be complete as ten more spots will be filled. Half of this evening's result has been decided already as the juries were voting during the second dress rehearsal last night.
Feeling buoyed after only getting two wrong on Tuesday, I’m back for another go at predicting who will qualify from the second semi-final. OK, with only 15 songs competing, I’m guaranteed to be 50% correct, but let’s see if I can predict all 10.
Tomorrow evening the final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest will be complete as ten more spots will be filled. Half of tomorrow's result was decided already tonight as the juries were voting in this second dress rehearsal.
Following last night's fantastic show fifteen acts went on stage for their first dress rehearsal aiming in fine tuning their performance in time for tomorrow's semi-final that will round up the finalists to twenty-six. As expected, excitement was on the rise as the press and fans were able to watch a full run through of the second semi-final.
