Eurovision 2010 Podcast: Semi Final 2 Commentary Written by on May 27, 2010

Here we go again! 17 countries, 10 shall stand, 7 shall fall… it’s the second semi-final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, and here’s your alternative commentary track for the show.

Just like Tuesday, you need to grab the MP3 file beforehand, and cue it up in your audio player of choice, be it portable on headphones, or on your PC. Feel free to start listening whenever you want, but starting as the show starts is fine. I’ll remind you in the show, but when you hear a beep, you pause the track, watch the song performance, then start up the track again. Don’t stop for adverts or cutaways, just for the music.

There’s still no opening ceremony beyond some talk from the hosts, so I’ll go over all you need to know, introduce Lithuania’s “Eastern European Funk” and give you the beep. At that point, pause the track, and start up after the song finishes.

I’ll be commenting real time on Twitter during the semi-final, maybe see you there as well?
