These countries did not qualify: Albania, Belgium, Estonia, Latvia, Moldova and Portugal.
In the afterwards press conference the singers have been allocated to the first or second half of the Grand Final by choosing a lot.
In Germany the picture was not showing during the Russian entry, but Germany has only showed it only in a division program which was not even receivable everywhere in the country and Germany did not have to vote.
In the press conference the ten finalists had to change the seating order, firstly they should have been seated in alphabetical order, but in that case Azerbaijan had to sit next to Armenia, that was not the aim, so they had to be seated as they have been announced.
So on Thursday the Semi Final 2 will determine the last ten entries
