    Iceland – ‘it’s a great song’ – For Stars on Sunday maybe.
    Albania – sorry to put a damper on your enthusiasm folks but this is very unlikely to qualify.

    Cyprus is going to come top 3 in the semi -it is now the favourite in the outright betting market. This won’t be sacrificed as a show opener.

    Very much looking forward to Semi One – Good luck with the commentary guys!

    As I was saying about Albania….Off to munch on some humble pie now.
