Now all the finalists have been determined. The Semi Final 2 has been another exciting show from Kiev with a lot of great moments. Many singers have been really shining like never before. And only 10 countries could get through the qualification round, while the other eight have to go home.
The 10 finalists from tonight are:
Interesting to see is that none of the Baltic countries made it into the Grand Final tonight. The Irish singer Brendan sang brilliantly and did not make it, the same is with the Serbian singer Tijana, who had one of the best stage settings of the night. Also the Estonian duo Koit & Laura could not convince with their song, despite of a modern stage performance, the song had an unmodern appeal. So sad for all who did not make it, but for the remaining 10 it will be a great opportunity to shine in front of approximately 200 million TV spectators on Saturday night.
