When you say "please also add the order you think the top 10 will be in each semi" what do you mean by this?

List the qualifiers and the finishing order 1-10 in each Semi Final.
The qualifiers will be revealed on the night of each semi-final.
The full results of the semi-finals are not revealed until after the final on Saturday, so any bonus points awarded for correct finishing positions will be awarded then.

The UK.... well good luck with that!
It is probably our best entry since Blue in 2011. I'm predicting a finish between 15-18 for us this year.
I do like our song but I feel that it could do with a break from the singing for about 20 seconds in the middle.
I like Lucy Jones voice but it starts to get a bit annoying after the full three minutes.

We're bottom five for sure this year. I'll be very surprised if we make it out.

Here are my predictions for the first semi final.

1. Portugal
2. Sweden
3. Finland
4. Azerbaijan
5. Armenia
6. Poland
7. Greece
8. Georgia
9. Australia
10. Moldova

I'm hoping that Moldova can squeeze into the final as they feature "Epic Sax Guy", he went viral on YouTube after the 2010 Moldovan entry.

Belgium is one of the favourites this year, but with many big contenders in the first semi final I think it might just miss out.

Tube Geek, I'm assuming that your No. 10 is Australia??? As Austria are in the second Semi Final.

Call me crazy but I'm starting to think that the UK might do okay this year!
I'm not as confident as Tube Geek predicting a UK win, however we could certainly finish Top 10.
Having watched all the rehearsals we have the best staging and Lucy Jones has the best voice.
I can see the juries going for this, as they haven't had much to encourage them to vote for the UK in previous years, I'm sure they can find a spot for us in their top 10?
The public vote is always a difficult thing to predict, but I can't imagine enough people picking up the phone to vote for the UK.

Italy is hot favourite, but I still think there could be an upset with possibly Finland or Portugal snatching the win.

Don't forget that you still have time to enter the Fantasy Eurovision contest. Just predict your Top 10 in each semi final and the overall winner of the contest.

It just occurred to me that if they did win, it would be the first non-English (and first native) language win since Serbia (Moltiva by Marija Šerifović) ten years ago.

About that contest - apologies I haven't done Semi-Two yet, i've been extremely busy recently. Trying to get them by Tuesday though.

You've predicted the first semi and overall winner so you have until 8pm Thursday to predict the second semi final.

3. Sweden (-1)
4. Azerbaijan
5. Armenia
6. Moldova (+4)
7. Poland (-1)

5. Belarus
6. Estonia
7. Denmark
