I am not going to predict anything tonight as the Final is near impossible to predict, but I will give my top 5. In no particular order:
Alexander Rybak is favourite to win, but I think its all hype. They will do well, but will it be enough to bring it to Oslo?
Germany have a fantastic entry this year with Alex Swings Oscar Sings. They also have Dita Von Teese dancing with them, so it will be a great perfromance.
Portugal’s Flor-De-Lis did fantastic on Tuesday night and could do really well. Portugal has been in the Eurovision since 1974 and has never won it so its about time I think!
Svetlana gave a great performance on Thursday and its a good song. Could do well.
Will Chiara make it third time lucky for Malta? Its a nice song could do and got a good reaction.
Sean has also listed who to watch on his blog.
Who do ye think could do it?
