Things are starting to hotten up here in Baku as the second semi final draws nearer. There are some big names among tonight's performers, most noteably Loreen and Željko Joksimović. Will they live up to the hype? Will feathered Joan charm the Netherlands into the final for the first time in eight years? Stay tuned to Eurovisionary to find out!

And Now For the 2nd Semi-Final

OK, so I only predicted six of the ten on Tuesday (Moldova – seriously?) but here I am again, putting my reputation on the line and giving you an early indication of who will complete the line-up for Saturday night.

Can Bonomo has proven that he deserves a place in the final. Several changes have been made in an attempt to improve the catastrophic result from Düsseldorf 2011. The most important change is that the colours of the outfit will be white and grey, with capes featuring as an important element for the performance.
