I reckon Denmark will walk it. Ireland will do well for a change, and could even be a winner if Denmark don't make it. We're certainly going for the gay vote this year with the half-naked drummers in leather trousers. Norway will do well to, and is also a possible winner.

Personally I don't understand why Denmark is so populare ... Sorry to my Danish friends ... But I don't see anything special about it. It's too regulare. We've heard and seen it all before ... On the other hand, Norway's song might just be too unusual piece for the contest. Not really alot of tradition of electronica Music in that competition ...

It's just a very strong song. It's formula to a point. An awful lot of Eurovision is rubbish, but this has an extra zing to it. Drums seem to be the big thing this year!

I learned watching euronews the other day that half the entrants have Swedish songwriters or producers behind them, so I'm really wondering what is the point of it all ?

It's a good song, I had no idea it was the Norwegian Eurosong entry until my wife told me. I'm hoping for a strong place, maybe even a win.

That was fun. Most of the others were crappy but not even funny. The Greeks were fun too. The French entry was not really eurovision material (but at least it was truly French).

+1 When I heard it during the week I was thinking OMG what have they done but actually live it was good. Seems to be getting decent feedback also . I loved Cyprus though shame it didnt get through.

Ireland is one of the best ones for a while. If I had to pick one it would be Belgium.

I also like Malta / Ukraine / Russia / UK .

Indeed! Slight touch of Fun in there too.

For sure. One of the strongest entries we've had for a while IMHO. Maybe Europe hasn't forgiven us for Dustin . . . or Jedward.  

You really never know what way the voting will go. I wouldn't have rated Ukraine, but then I only heard it a couple of times. Some nice talent in the show for once: the Azeri lead singer, the bearded guitarist from Armenia, and there were a couple of handsome bearded guys in the Greek entry, but then you don't have to throw a stone far to hit a bit of talent in Greece!

Petra was superb! Loved her humour, and she carried the whole show off with fantastic confidence and professionalism. Loved the interval act where she sang the song sending-up Sweden. The Swedes add that nice zany touch, and don't take the contest too seriously. Surprising, really, considering that they practically own the contest at this stage.

La Suede et Petra douze points!

That was the best song indeed, good job Denmark! Very much a Eurovision feel and rhythm but unique enough to warrant some recognition.

Really? I was positive that it would make it to top 3. Ukraine has showed a high level for the last two years. Gaitana last year was also pretty good.

Carrément! I thought that Petra was amazing. It was so refreshing to see just one presenter instead of the usual awkward duo, plus her "half-time" routine was brilliant. I can't say I was overly impressed with any of the music (but that's Eurovision for you!) It was also kind of refreshing to see a lack of political voting this year.

I secretly hope, though, that the UK has the balls to withdraw next year - I know that the big 5: UK, France, Germany; Spain, and Italy contribute the most money and are automatically qualified. I just don't see the point of spending BBC licence payers' money to help stage something we have no hope of winning.

In any case, my "Eurovision" favourite is My Lovely Horse from Father Ted  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzYzVMcgWhg
