So I have just finished watching the UK final for Eurovision and I think they made a good choice, but any way who are Ireland up against in the Semi’s? We have been drawn to take part in the Second Semi Final. We will be up against the following (this is not the running order!)

Slovenia
Denmark
Azerbaijan
Netherlands
Latvia
Hungary
Serbia
Norway
Ukraine
Greece
Lithuania
Poland
Croatia
Estonia
Moldova
Cyprus
Ireland
Slovakia
Albania

Also voting in the second semi final will be Russia and France.

We have an okay chance in this group in my opinion. We normal pick up votes from a few of these countries (Albania, Netherlands and Denmark), the fact that the UK will not be voting in this Semi final will hurt us.

Just for those who are curious the Countries in the first semi-final are (again not the running order!):

Bosnia-Herzegovina
Sweden
Israel
Belgium
Andorra
Czech Republic
Montenegro
Iceland
Georgia
Bulgaria
Portugal
Switzerland
FYR Macedonia
Finland
Belarus
Turkey
Romania
Malta
Armenia

Also voting in the first semi will be the UK, Germany and Spain.

The first semi will take place on May 12th, the Second on the 14th with the final taking place on May 16th! Am looking forward to it now!
