    Whilst Netherlands do still seem like the most likely winner, it does seem very odd that we now only have 2 countries with odds lower than 10/1 to win. Surely it’s more open than that? I don’t get why Sweden is falling so fast when the Thursday night performance was as good as it has ever been or is ever likely to be.

    Thanks for your wonderful coverage once again! As always, it really enhances the build-up for those of us not lucky enough to be in the press centre! (And I like that you’ve kept the daily shows more focused on the rehearsals this year!)

    By the way, Srbuk said on Twitter:
    Just a few hours left until the 2nd Semi. But before that, l’ll uncover some secrets abt the staging. During the culmination you will be surprised. I’m gonna be “alone” in the hall, without audience.
    This trick‘ll be used for the emotional tension to be even more powerful. ❤️
