Ahead of tonight’s live Eurovision Grand Final, I reveal my predictions for the finishing positions. Some of these have changed in the last few days, so will be different from what I had posted in my reviews. Have a look see and see if you agree with my predictions.
Tuesday saw ten acts qualify from the first semi final of Eurovision 2017. Tonight saw the broadcast of Semi Final 2 and another ten acts have made the line up of the Final. Check out who has made it through!
Semi Final 2 of Eurovision 2017 will take place on Thursday but a head of that all the acts have had a practice run through with the rehearsals last week. Check out how each of the acts from SF2 got on in their rehearsals. Which ten of the eighteen acts do you think will make it through to Saturday’s live final? Vote in our poll!
Imagine if Eurovision was an episode of ‘Dragon’s Den’. I feel like Ilinca and Alex Florea would be one of the risky investments that few of the dragons would invest in and were they to invest they would give hardly any money and ask for a lot of shares in return. You would think that if someone was to say ‘I have this idea for musical fusion. I want to bring the world of yodelling folk music together with rap music’, any one who knows anything about music’s response would be ‘I’m out!’. Moreover, if you were to pin down a country that would propose such a musical fusion you would think it likely to be an Alpine country like Switzerland or Austria, but it is in fact Romania who has brought this proposal forward and strangely the combination works a treat.
Sixteen songs have progressed to this second round of the Eurovision NI World Cup 2017, having finished in the top two of their group in the group stages. This round will see the songs battle it out in duels to see which eight will make it through to the quarter final round next week. Get voting for your favourites, the polls will all close on 16th April.
Ilinca and Alex Florea will represent Romania at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest where the duo will sing the song ‘Yodel It!’ In Kiev in May. Get to know the pair better with our feature article 10 Things About…Ilinca ft Alex Florea!
