So after the first semi the scores are:
Tubeguru 16 pts
Soup Dragon 16 pts
Tube Geek 12 pts
My predicted winner, Finland, is out (shows how much I know), so no chance of bonus points for me!

I got seven out of ten right. I'll reveal how I chose them once the final line-up is decided.

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.
I think that it will either be Portugal or Italy, so either way it will be non-English

We won't embarrass ourselves this year! I predict at least 100 points from the juries for the UK, I'm just not sure that Lucy will get the public vote.

I mean, if Russia can annex a whole region of Ukraine and come second still, I don't see how we always have to do badly. Maybe we could notice that whenever we send a good song, we tend to do ok.

I hope you are right with UK in 6th, the song is good enough for the top 10 but you never know.
Do you have any predictions for last place?

My predictions are based on the overall betting odds for each song.

On that basis my prediction for last place is Spain.
