    Can anything involving a porcupine ever be pointless? Sorry.
    We’re also looking at no exyugs in the final I think.

    I’m sad for Finland. This was one of my favorites.
    I have mixed feelings about Belgium…I definitely like the video and the song, though not sure the overall performance deserved to be in the final.

    As for the 2nd semifinal: I think the Netherlands will be in the top 3 …their videos have lots of views, I sort of like the 40 sec snippets that Eurovision channel has versus 3 min…but the girls have beautiful voices…I don’t get the euphoria for Bulgaria, although I think he’s OK. My favorites: Romania, Netherlands, Hungary, Estonia, Switzerland and Austria…will see tomorrow…

    I’m surprised you like Lights and Shadows, but not the performance. Usually it’s the other way around. I hope this is more like 2014 where the Dutch performance wasn’t for you, but still did really well.
