    Very perceptive comments, about Australia, Ewan. If Jessica has her confidence back and this was reflected in an improved jury performance tonight, then I suspect it will give juries the excuse they need to resume their love affair with the contestants from down under. Despite its many vocal, staging and costume issues, the song itself is very strong and Australia can still make top 5 with the juries. It will not do well in the televote though, so that is my pre-contest each way bet going down the drain.
