Welcome to the Persephone ESC Countdown! Next are Switzerland and Turkey.
Swiss Anna Rossinelli sings another love song for us (has somebody counted?). Here she is with “In Love for a While.”
Turkey sends another rock band to the Eurovision with YÃ¼ksek Sadakat and their song “Live it Up.”
So, what else has been happening in Eurovision News? Well, yesterday was the first semi-final! 19 entries performed and nine were kicked out.
The ten who made it to the final on Saturday are:
Serbia, Lithuania, Greece, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Switzerland, Hungary, Finland, Russia and Iceland.
The nine who didn’t make it are:

Bosnia & Herzegovina, Austria, The Netherlands, Belgium, Slovakia, Ukraine, Moldova, Sweden, Cyprus, Bulgaria, F.Y.R. Macedonia, Israel, Slovenia, Romania, Estonia, Belarus, Latvia, Denmark and Ireland.

Eurovision liveblog on Saturday, yay or nay??
I’ve asked – let’s see if it’s possible!
As you can tell, I’m v excited that Jedward are through:)
About Jedward. Are they on a constant sugar high or something? Is it an internal joke that nobody besides the Irish gets?
I think they’re either completely insane or absolutly brilliant. Not sure wich one though ;).
Nobody knows. Honestly. It seems to be just what they’re like. They’re mad as brushes.
At first we were kind of horrified by them but they’ve grown on us. They’re mad cheesy bastards, but they’re ours.
(if you’re Twitter, follow them @PlanetJedward. Great fun.)
Well, looks like we’re doing a Live Blog tomorrow night – Ophelia and I are just working out the details. I hope you’ll join me :).
